Love is a lightness of heart, a happiness beyond any words to describe its beauty. This dreamy, romantic picture from Maddy and Adam’s winter wedding captures its essence in every glorious pixel.

It’s wonderful to see a little wedding cake love. The modern day cake is a work of art, a feast for the eyes even more than for your hungry guests’ tummies. I adore seeing top cake designers launch new collections: wedding cake stars PeboryonRosalind Miller, Cakes by Beth, Amy Swann and Nevie-Pie Cakes are turning wedding cakes into works of art… and for cake fans this has to be the most wonderful thing ever!

‘Fowey’ wedding cake. “After an afternoon celebrating togetherness, art galleries and good coffee, a walk out to watch the white sails chase the breeze on the sparkling sea was invigorating. There’s freedom and beauty in power under control.”


Hey lovely! It’s been a fabulous week already here at English Wedding Blog HQ, and I’m thrilled to have been working with some amazing folks on styled shoots and features to inspire your wedding plans!

Today – a sneak peek, never before seen anywhere else in the world, at a brand new wedding stationery collection. We’re talking metallic gold calligraphy which reflects beautifully in sunlight. The richest of green papers, perfect for your boho or woodland wedding – or even to suit a more traditional celtic themed wedding day. Take a look, and if you love what you see, I’ll be sharing more soon.


Serenity, until December at least, was a state of mind. Rose quartz was a beautiful stone… and yet we are going crazy for these two ‘colours of the year‘. They’re all over wedding blogs with styled shoots, Pins, and mood boards – creating the perfect wedding palette and colour scheme to inspire brides worldwide.

I’ve talked before about wedding colour palettes being far more than they used to be: gone are the days of one-colour weddings with blocks of Cadbury purple or teal splashed across every available accessory. I believe in colour palettes – choosing a combination of tones will make your wedding look fabulous.


Laura and James were married at Yorkshire’s gorgeous Cubley Hall, in the summer. Their day is perfect: captured in a beautiful fine art style, with the whimsical wedding details I love so very much. The flowers are divine – oh, those peonies! and Laura looks more than amazing in a beautiful wedding dress from designer Emma Tindley.
