I know this year’s been a rollercoaster for all of you – Covid has hit us hard, and we still don’t know how or when we’ll come out of this safely. 2020 sucks! I’ve kind of taken it upon myself to share as many micro wedding related ideas as I possibly can. Small, intimate and cosy weddings are magical, I promise. If you’re planning your day for 2021 perhaps it’ll be very different to the wedding you originally had in mind. But the wedding industry is adjusting: photographers are coming up with special packages for smaller weddings; stationers are creating all kinds of “new date” wedding invites – and today I’m thrilled to be sharing some glorious bouquets especially for intimate weddings. Which is your favourite?
The English Wedding Directory is our curated list of brilliant wedding vendors. Our Insta is regularly updated with new vendors when they join us, and the Directory is full of brilliant photographers, stationers, florists, stylists… everything you might need for the wedding of your dreams!
These lovely wedding suppliers have joined the English Wedding Directory in the last couple of weeks – do take a moment to discover them, and if you like what you see why not get in touch and even book this weekend?
It’s been a bumper year for proposals – which only proves that love is stronger than any pandemic. We will get through this – and when we do, the other side will be so full of joyful celebrations we won’t know where to turn. I have the most romantic proposal to share with you today – with beautiful Oluwaseun taken completely by surprise when Akinwale popped the question on a quiet day in central London.
Akinwale planned everything perfectly, with London proposal photographer Matt Badenoch ready and waiting to capture the moment. Afterwards they had a stroll around the city for some more beautiful photos to celebrate their engagement!
I’m finding it fascinating to see wedding suppliers almost subconsciously adapt their shoots to work for micro weddings. While the wedding world shifts and changes to a focus on intimate, small (and all the more beautiful) celebrations, suppliers are coming together to create the most wonderful inspiration for our editorials. Today’s post is a fabulous example: a small group of talented Norfolk wedding creatives came together to create something truly beautiful. For me, it shows that you can have a magical micro wedding with a small team of trusted suppliers to turn your dreams into reality.
Today’s wedding is short n sweet, with the most stunning details – truly, the images speak for themselves and capture the love and joy from this romantic, emotional Beeston Manor wedding. Aimee & Dan are just stunning – you can feel the nervous excitement and the joy as their day unfolds – it’s magical. Images are by Lancashire wedding photographer and English Wedding member Phil Salisbury, whose favourite venues include Beeston Manor and Eaves Hall in Clitheroe.
