I love today’s wedding. Scrolling through the photos takes me on a mini rollercoaster of emotions – with gorgeous details and a stunning bride and groom, the proudest mum ever, and some wonderfully comical pics of little ones enjoying the day. The overwhelming feeling from this lovely Chippenham Park wedding is of love and happiness – and I know you’ll adore what you’re about to see.

Cambridge wedding inspiration from Chippenham Park with Lee Allison Photography (5)

This was a beautiful spring wedding at one of my favourite venues in Cambridge, Chippenham Park. The grounds are just amazing, a perfect backdrop at every turn. The bridesmaids wore unusual bright red dresses too which made for some great contrast in the group photos. ~ Lee Allison, Cambridge wedding photographer

I love this wedding. The details and styling are fab, Solene and Adam are both soooo gorgeous – and their smiles just make me grin right back at the screen. Their wedding day was Lord of the Rings themed, and it was styled amazingly with their florist really seeing their vision. Their images are vibrant, natural, and capture the spirit of the day so beautifully. Huge thanks to Gemma Giorgio for sending me such a beautiful wedding to share with you all today!

Our venue didn’t need much decoration – the building itself was in keeping with our style. We made placecards with quotes on the back and little hessian sacks as party favours which were stamped with a personalised stamp. Our cake was a naked cake (red velvet, salted caramel and Victoria sponge) as it fitted perfectly with our general theme.

For my bouquet I had pale purple and red roses with foliage, and for the table decorations, lots of moss! The florist was Alison White Flowers. She was amazing! She designed and arranged everything on the big day.

Karen and Richard were together for 17 years before they got married. Their story goes back some way: they were even in the same class at school! Karen told me the best thing about being married is not having to call Richard her partner any more – because it always sounded as though they were in business together! (Honestly though, why has no one thought of a better word for partner… any suggestions?!)

Their Mansion House wedding is pretty, perfect, and full of love and family and smiles all day long. I love the flowers, I adore Karen’s pretty House of Mooshki dress – she looks so beautiful! – and the atmosphere of their day which comes across so perfectly in their images.

Elegance and glamour with plenty of sparkle for a wedding in Cheltenham with Special Day Photography (20)

Matthew and Selina are both musicians, and took inspiration from music when styling their wedding. It’s a wonderfully glamorous day full of sequins and sparkle, with a laid back vibe. The bouquet is breathtaking – and don’ you just love Selina’s glorious hair colour?

“Our wedding style was all about boho glamour with geometric shapes. We took inspiration from our favourite colours, hobbies, styles and eras.
Music plays a huge role in our lives due to both being musicians who met on a music course at university, which is why the table names were the surnames of our favourite musicians. We were inspired by music, the 1920’s, boho hippie style, nature and geometric shapes (the latter due to Matthew’s scientific and mathematical side).

Luxe wedding styling with Zehra Jagani Photography at Owen House (1)

A wedding planner once told me to think of wedding styling as one end of a see-saw: the other end holding all your guests, and in the centre your virtual piggy bank. Slide more money towards inviting more guests, and you’ll lose some of your styling budget. But if styling is all important to you, slide your piggy bank in the other direction by inviting only your very closest friends and family to your wedding ceremony.

Today’s style edit is pure luxe, and transforms beautifully from day into night: I love it. The florals are divine: opulent and free, with a gentle mix of colours which really come into their own in the breathtaking candlelight. The palette shifts from palest blues with gold accents in the daytime, through to more corals and yellows which bask in the golden glow of the candles as night falls.

What a whirlwind last year was! I hope 2017 has been as wonderful for you as it has for us here at the English Wedding Blog HQ. Time to start afresh, relax and rewind, and make some lovely plans for the year ahead. If you’re thinking ahead to your 2018 wedding (eeekkk!!) and looking for a project or a crafty little challenge for the year ahead, I might just have the perfect solution.

We all LOVE a bit of wedding crafting. Over the last year or so DIY weddings have become so much more sophisticated – and one of my very favourite things is seeing couples learning from the experts. Courses on flower arranging, cake design and more have caught our attention – but my personal favourite will always be calligraphy. It’s such a lovely hobby – it will stay with you for life, and having the skills to write your own invitations, design your own stationery – and add that personal touch to everything.

Today’s featured wedding was a classic white wedding with the most beautiful church arch. A very relaxed elegant feel with lots of involvement from the family – and the prettiest florals you can imagine. I just love the archway covered in flowers and foliage by lovely Caroline, owner of Foxy Buds Floral Design – it makes the prettiest backdrop for photos and has a traditional feel to it which I think is wonderful.

The brief I gave my florist (Caroline at Foxy Buds) was “White with greenery presented in a natural/wild style.” And Foxy Buds completely delivered. I was really nervous before the big day because I had completely overdosed on Pintrest and Instagram and so I thought it would be impossible to bring that picture in my head to life. That nervousness was a complete waste of time – Caroline’s flowers were more beautiful that anything I had seen elsewhere. James and I constantly referred to the word “relaxed” when talking about what we wanted from our big day and that’s exactly the same feel I wanted (and got) from the flowers.

I’ve heard some criticism of styled shoots recently (did you catch me on The Icing On The Cake podcast this week and last? Zoe did a brilliant job putting together interviews with me and Kat from Rock n Roll Bride where we shared our thoughts on wedding planning, trends and styled shoots! It’s worth a listen!) – namely that they can be too aspirational and expensive to recreate for a full scale wedding.  Today’s shoot on the English Wedding Blog is perfect to me because the look is achievable: it’s beautiful in simplicity, the table arrangements are perfect for a display area being wild and natural, and the look created is laid back, uncomplicated and frankly a beautiful breath of fresh air.

Today’s wedding is incredible – I fell hard for the gorgeous red peony bouquet, which matches beautiful bride Charlotte’s hair perfectly! The venue is spectacular… if you’re looking for a wedding venue in the south east of the country, and want to make a real statement – then this is absolutely one to go see! David and Charlotte’s day is filled with thoughtful handmade touches, beautiful moments, and love and laughter. I hope you love it as much as I do!

We got married at Battle Abbey School in Battle, East Sussex. I grew up in Hastings (which is just down the road) and David has come to adore the coast so the setting and the location was perfect for us. For our wedding we decided on a book theme. Both of us are avid writers and readers and the love of a book is what heavily fueled one of our first conversations. Battle Abbey offered the opportunity to have our wedding breakfast in their library – which convinced us that it was the perfect setting for our day. Around the wedding we had various literature related items – book centerpieces, paper flowers, a table plan constructed of book pages. It was great to bring that love of ours into such a special day. I think the style of our wedding was quite classic, with the setting of Battle, the tails for the boys and lace on my dress.

Just one look at Rachael’s gorgeous dress and I was hooked on this stunning wedding from Huntsham Court. Lovely English Wedding Directory member Justina from HD Moments shared it with us, and I hope you will love watching it as much as I do!

As a wedding videographer, my work takes me to several places, but one of my favorite places is London – even when the weather is freezing, it is lovely to click wedding pictures there. As a London wedding videographer, I was tasked to document the winter wedding of Rachael and Josh at Huntsham Court.

The “made for each other” pair!

In this Huntsham court wedding video, you can clearly witness the joy and happiness of Rachael and Josh – they are finally solidifying their bond of love, and it is a surreal feeling, as they told me. The bride looks remarkable in her attire – the outfit she picked out flattered her curves in the right way, and suited her marvelously. The hair, accessories, and shoes were picked out with a lot of thought – everything matched with the overall theme of the wedding. The groom wasn’t to be outdone – he too looked fit and dapper in his suit. He carried it off with confidence and his eagerness was apparent in his demeanor. He couldn’t wait to meet his soon-to-be-wife at the altar.

Setting your wedding day priorities early on is imperative

It means you can divide up your budget according to what is important to you both for your day, making sure you don’t waste your budget on things you don’t need or want! As a wedding planner, I work with couples to help them plan their dream day.

One of the very first things we do is look at priorities. It so interesting to see who picks which area as the most important. So here is what to do…

Write a list of every element of your wedding day.

For example: venue, food, drink, ceremony, guests, entertainment, attire, cake, stationery, location etc.

Make sure you both have the same list and rate the items into order so that 1 is the most important.

Then compare.

Now it’s likely that you and your partner’s lists will be different.

Today’s real wedding is romantic, feminine and oh so pretty – the kind of wedding so many girls dream of, brought to life with a wonderfully elegant style. Beautiful bride Amy’s dress is divine – I adore the palest pink hue which works beautifully with the bridesmaids’ soft grey dresses. Words and images are by our lovely sponsor, Somerset wedding photographer Sandy at Love In Focus.

Getting to shoot any Somerset wedding photography on a bright and sunny day is one of the many upsides of my job – so getting to photograph a wedding at Aldwick Court Farm on a bright and sunny day is just about as good as this job gets! Amy and Ben chose the perfect venue for their spring wedding.

On the day I arrived at Amy’s parents’ house in Bristol to take some shots of Amy as she got ready for the day. Amy looked amazing in her dress with beautiful lace detail and chiffon on the skirt that gave her a wonderful silhouette.
