Sam and Jason were married in Kent at The Secret Garden wedding venue just outside Ashford. This is a really special little venue – the ceremony was held in the Glass House, a gorgeous sunny spot for intimate weddings with its very own views across the secret garden itself. Today’s bride Sam is simply stunning – I adore her hair ornament and those gorgeous curls, don’t you?
Morning everyone! We’re about to hit what I’m calling ‘proper Christmas’, and most of you will be thinking about non-wedding stuff for a while – so with that in mind I’m sharing some wonderfully bookmarkable posts from now on. Read now if you’re feeling weddingy, or save for later if you’re rushed off your feet with Christmas prep!
Rustic wedding invitations are going to be huge in 2015 – I’ve seen more and more natural and outdoor weddings over the last few months and it’s a trend I love and can’t wait to see more of! It’s time to think about wedding invitations for 2015 so I’d love to show you one of my own collections today.
These kraft invitations are designed especially for you. Names are handwritten in calligraphy, scanned and printed onto every invitation with wording of your choice. They’re affordable and versatile: the plain kraft card is all you need but I love the idea of adding a coloured background, wrapper or tying the invites with a piece of lace. Perfect for DIY brides!
Today’s wedding is more than amazing – so many breathtaking images and a fabulous wedding report (with equal doses of advice, emotion and chuckles) from beautiful bride Laura.
There is a subtle map theme to the day, but overall the style is relaxed, intimate and LOTS of fun! Laura told me “It was like being in a candy-floss cloud…” and when I asked about her Naomi Neoh dress she said “I put her on (blush pink and softer than angel hair) and did not want to take her off… ever.”
I’ve always loved The Belle Epoque as a wedding venue. In the early days of The English Wedding Blog I featured so many weddings there… but it’s been a little while and I’ve missed the place! It’s a quirky boutique venue with tons of character – perfectly fitting for Andrew and Laura.
All of you lovely brides-to-be will be having the adventure of your lives as you plan your weddings – and a huge part will be wedding dress shopping. There are so many incredible wedding dress designers you might struggle to choose… so one of the very best in the world is about to sweeten the deal! Tempted?
Stepping inside the Jenny Packham store is only the beginning…
