For those of you settling back into a more tranquil home as kiddies head back to school today… welcome. Please come and join us in this relaxed and pretty little space of the internet, where flowers and beautiful things distract us from the bustle of our daily routines. Today we have a gorgeous, mini summer vintage styled shoot from Lauren Beth, a photographer based in East Sussex. Lauren recently arranged a mini summer vintage styled shoot with a small group of suppliers – as this took place in the midst of lockdown, where photographing couples/ models was not possible, Lauren took the opportunity to focus on the details that go into making a wedding day special!

When lovely Lauren sent me these images, she said she hopes this little shoot can inspire future couples that small wedding set ups can be just as beautiful as large gatherings. I couldn’t agree more – and I think the photos you’re about to see are all the proof we need that cosy and intimate can be ever so lovely when it comes to weddings. With love,


When I spotted this wedding in our calendar for today I wanted to cartwheel down the street. It makes me SO happy! I absolutely love the joy and colour in today’s wedding – and beautiful Amo and Shayan are the absolute best! These two lovelies tied the knot at Elmore Court last summer, and chose the venue for its flexibility: to have a classic English wedding with big white dress and black tie, with a formal day reception… then transform the whole event into a vibrant and colourful Indian wedding reception complete with drummers and a fabulous party atmosphere. And boy, did they nail it or what?! Images are by Cotswolds Wedding Photographer Dan Morris, and I’ll leave you with lovely Amo and Shayan to tell you about their day!

So Covid threw us all the biggest curveball, and we’re left wondering how we get married now. Planning a wedding suddenly became something of an uncertainty: thousands of 2020 couples have postponed weddings until 2021, and no one knows for sure when social distancing won’t be a thing any more.

Rather than telling you how you ‘should’ plan your 2021 wedding – because who even knows? I think flexibility and an open mind are the safest steps forwards right now – I wanted to share some of the best things about the rather fabulous celebrations we’re now calling micro weddings.

Intimate weddings, UK micro weddings and elopements captured by London wedding photographer Jordanna Marston (9)

The thing is, folks have been having tiny weddings for years. There are so many reasons to have a micro wedding – and they’re not all bad! Here’s a few…

  • Covid (ok so that’s the bad one)
  • spending sensibly
  • freedom to do things your way

Looking forwards a few weeks we’ll be enjoying crisp, misty mornings and frost on the paths. There’s something wonderful about the autumn and winter months: the glistening countryside as dawn breaks, and the early golden hour creeping across the land on those last few sunny evenings. Today’s shoot is a beauty: glorious golden sunlight and warm tones in wedding styling. The dresses are out of this world – and for my stationery-loving heart, the paper goodies are simply fabulous.

I stumbled across Dan and Sophia’s beautiful wedding when we welcomed the lovely White Van Wedding Co. as an English Wedding member. I fell head over heels with the camper, and the atmosphere of this gorgeous rustic wedding – I simply had to share! The video is lovely – it’s by Natasha at Musk Photography and Films – and I’ve included a few stills from the video (which I begged from Natasha!) to go with the happy couple’s interview below!

I hope you love this as much as I do. With love,


Wedding videographer details
Natasha caught so many special moments. Watching the film back a couple of weeks after craziness and excitement of the day had passed really brought all the emotions of the day. It’s my favourite video ever!!!

We were lucky enough to have a friend of the family as well as another photographer on the day. Both we just really loved their style. Natasha in particular got some amazing candid moments.


Has September sunk in yet?! It hardly feels more than a few weeks since lockdown… and so I wanted to share this pretty spring wedding with you today. Beautiful brides Hannah and Jess tied the knot days before the world stopped in March, and their sunny, vibrant spring wedding is full of happiness and love. Images are by our friend Mark at Evolve Photography in Devon, and the florals by his lovely wife Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye! The venue is The Green Cornwall (I know, I know… we blogged another wedding there on Saturday!)

I hope you love this wedding as much as I do. Have a lovely Wednesday!

We loved Mark’s portfolio of photos. Amazing work and a decent price too!


Happy September, lovely! Now – I’ve had this beautiful wedding up my sleeve for a little while, because there are a few little baubles in here… and I thought we should probably wait until September before mentioning Christmas! It’s a BEAUTIFUL wedding though, so I absolutely couldn’t wait a moment longer before sharing it with you. Susanna and Kieran’s wedding is perfect. They married last year, with only 8 ceremony guests and a relaxed and informal celebration with some beautiful touches. Honestly, these two are the cutest couple and I’m so excited to share their day with you. Watch out for the EPIC florals and for Susanna’s gorgeous Charlie Brear jumpsuit, which is absolutely stunning!
With love,

We found Grace Elizabeth via endless Instagram browsing. Her photos instantly caught our eyes and once we were on her website we were sold.


Happy Bank Holiday Monday! Today’s wedding is relaxed and fun – with the loveliest DIY styling touches and a vintage vibe – oh, and the prettiest bride! It’s a fabulous wedding and I love it all the more for the fact that Will made all the paper flowers. What a superstar! (I love anything that stomps on the myth that grooms don’t get involved with wedding planning.) This is seriously special, and I just know you’re going to find some brilliant ideas for your own wedding in here. Images are by lovely Katie Winter Photography. Have a wonderful day everyone!

With love,

We had seen Katie at a few of our friends weddings and when we saw their pictures we knew she was the right person for the job. When we met Katie for the first time it was like chatting to a friend and the communication with her from that point on was brilliant. She really listened to the sort of photography we wanted and completely took that on board.

We have a MEGA wedding blog to share with you to celebrate the bank holiday – grab a cuppa and come join us! “Us” today is lovely Kath and Adam, who married at Wyresdale Park waaaay before lockdowns were a thing. “Us” is also lovely Charlene at Love Gets Sweeter Videography (who I’m proud to say is an English Wedding member) and the fabulous Claire Basiuk Photography. This is an epic, beautiful wedding with a stunning couple, and we’re sharing their wedding highlights video as well as some gorgeous images from their day. Happy Sunday, enjoy the rest of the long weekend everyone!
With love,

Videographer details – and any thoughts for other couples about having a wedding video?

Love gets sweeter – Charlene was the most fantastic person to have involved in our day. So helpful from start to finish and couldn’t recommend her enough. So very happy that she was so wonderful that everyone adored her – she will be a part of my best friends wedding next year we can’t wait to see her again!


The thing about barn wedding venues is all that lovely character they have… and The Green Cornwall is one of our faves! Its walls tell a story and make a quirky backdrop for beautiful ceremonies, and Hannah & Joel’s day fits perfectly! This is a wedding full of love and joy, with the loveliest details (pom pom confetti – YES!!!) which I know you’ll love. Our gorgeous couple have shared their supplier recommendations and a happy review for our friend Alexa Poppe Photography. Congratulations Hannah & Joel, we LOVE your wedding!

Hey lovelies – I have a dreamy real wedding to share with you today. This is a destination wedding from France, with delicately pretty styling touches and light and airy photography by our lovely friend Hannah K Photography. Francine is breathtaking in a gorgeous lace dress from Love Bridal London; Jamie her perfect match in Marc Darcy tailoring. As our regular readers will know, we tend to stay in the UK for our features, so this trip to the Loire Valley for a destination wedding is an absolute (albeit virtual) treat! I hope you love it too.

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

Lots of Instagram research! We wanted a light, natural style that would capture our day and our guests in a joyful, real way. We found photographers that we liked on Instagram, and clicked through who they followed until we found Hannah!

Buying a wedding dress is a Big Deal. Chances are you’ll be spending £££ on your dress, and buying from the loveliest wedding dress shop in your area – and in your budget. Just before you get your heart set on your dream dress though, can we share some advice about alterations? They’re really, really important – and it’s as crucial to have alterations done properly as it is to buy a dress that’s the right size and shape for your figure.

It’s easy to assume you’ll buy your dress after your first fitting, have your measurements sent off to the designer, and your dress will arrive at the boutique a few weeks later fitting like a glove. Easy peasy!

… nope.

Having your wedding dress altered: the facts

Every wedding dress will or should need to be altered to fit you perfectly. A size 14 isn’t universal: girls who are a size 14 can be different heights, with different proportions – and there’s no such thing as “the perfect size 12” – we’re all different shapes and that’s what makes us amazing, right?
