If we go back to early 14th century English, the word stag was used to refer to a male of any species. But in today’s current wedding lingo, a stag party means a get-together reserved for men when one of the group is about to get married. It’s traditionally held just before the wedding and is something of a rite of passage.
Morning lovely! I’m happy to be bringing you a glorious real wedding today – it’s from last summer when the world was normal, and it’s exceptionally beautiful. I love to see these reminders of how things will be when the pandemic is over: with friends and family and togetherness and joy and love all bundled up into one huggable celebration! Steph & Tom’s day is beautiful – they enlisted our lovely friend and English Wedding member Jo at One Curious Dream to help bring everything together – and it’s fabulous!
Morning lovelies! Today’s shoot is prettily perfect, filled with vibrant reds and pinks and the most beautiful sunlight. With stunning images by lovely Nisha at Your Choice Photography. As Elopements and intimate weddings take a centre seat in 2020 and beyond, I wanted to share just how beautiful a celebration for two (or maybe a couple more) can be. It doesn’t have to break the bank to be beautiful and unique. This lakeside elopement inspiration could have been in any destination in the world…but with the right wedding professionals – this sunset celebration of love was capable in the heart of Yorkshire.

Styling your Tables
So you have the dress and suit, you’ve got the band and the venue is all booked, tables seem to be the next item high up on the list for many couples. This is because the tables really are a highlight of the day. From setting the scene to colour schemes, the tables create the ambience of the day, influencing how people eat, how they communicate, how they see the couple as well as what it looks like. Often my couples know what their table shouldn’t look like, and from here we springboard to what they would like their table to be.
Thank you lovely Carla Thomas Photography for this contribution to English Wedding.
2020 has been anything but dull and the good news if your wedding is planned for the end of the year, weddings are now allowed to take place. Of course, there are some restrictions in place as the country and world eases back into the new normal.
