Sometimes I see a wedding and it looks the most fun a couple has ever had in their lives. Sometimes the joy and excitement spills through in every beautiful detail, and I spend ages just gazing at all the gorgeous photos to see little details and love and laughter and grinning back at my screen. Mike and Kelly are one of those amazing couples you can just see loved every moment of their best day ever, and I’m so happy they chose our fabulous friend and exceptional documentary wedding photographer Linus Moran to capture their wedding.

This truly is a wedding with everything: a boat covered in flowers, glorious sunshine and face glitter. A stunning bride beaming with joy, and her groom glowing with pride and happiness. The emotion of the day is pure magic – the love between this amazing couple is just magical to see.

Imagine a wedding venue brimming with ancient history; yet in the heart of a beautiful English city. Imagine an evening celebration in a timeless setting, a rich treasure house with grand, sweeping staircases and priceless paintings.

Our friends at The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford have brought together a bunch of supremely talented creatives to showcase the magic of their venue. The Ashmolean is available as a private wedding venue after hours, its opulent reception rooms and architectural alcoves making a stunning and fascinating setting for your special celebration.

The warmth and majesty of this bridal photoshoot from the Ashmolean Museum takes my breath away. The beautiful images by Zaki Charles Photography capture the dramatic spaces and historic character of the museum.

Hello, beautiful! I’m so incredibly excited today to be sharing one part of an EPIC bridal story – this is an editorial photoshoot from some of Cheshire’s most sought-after wedding suppliers. Lovely wedding photographer Zehra Jagani – Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2018’s Asian Wedding Awards – and the amazingly talented Sadauf from The Wedding Fairy teamed up to create something as dreamy as can be at Delamere Manor. Together they created a timeless look, with some beautiful cool tones of platinum greys and dusty blues with figs, mixed berries, herbs and all year round floral sprigs – and they were kind enough to invite me to provide calligraphy and stationery (Find me at By Moon & Tide) for the occasion.

One of the first things to pop up on my instagram this morning was a note from Annabel at Love My Dress: simply, her heartwarming response in support of featuring LGBTQ+ weddings on her blog, to a reader whose worldview was sadly – just wrong! Reading Annabel’s wonderful message made me proud of the wedding blogging world, and I wanted to (virtually) stand with her and say that ALL weddings are welcomed equally on English-Wedding.com – always. I don’t think I say it enough, to be honest.

So right now I’m looking for new wedding submissions to fill the blog’s editorial calendar in the coming months, and I want to make a real point of inviting submissions of every single type and style and flavour – I’m looking for love, romance, and beautiful images alongside inclusivity, and I rely on you guys to send me weddings to feature! So if you have a wedding you’d like to see published here, please get in touch!

Hey lovely! I spent yesterday playing with my brush pens, as I’m heading to lovely Nantwich for a day of calligraphy fun at the weekend! I’ll be at The Little Paper Shop (in their gorgeous new home!) all day, and we still have a few places left for brush pen lettering in the afternoon. I’ve splashed out on a few water brush pens for the afternoon – and I just can’t stop playing with them! They’re the LOVELIEST thing!

Brush pen lettering is fun, relaxed, playful and – my fave thing – has no rules. You learn a rhythm of lettering which is just such a joyful way to spend a day! I created these little bits this week and will pop them on my insta shortly. (I’m a huge fan of the upside-down timelapse calligraphy video – honestly, it’s giggles and phone rotation for everyone every time I post!)

Hey beautiful! Happy Monday! Is it beautiful sunshine where you are today? It’s a glorious day up here in the Lakes and I’m LOVING the frosty autumn leaves on the ground right now. But to take us all back to summertime, I have a truly beautiful August wedding to share with you today – it’s gorgeous couple Chloe & Matt, who married at Greyfriars House and chose lovely Tash at Musk Photography to capture their day.

Chloe looks stunning in a beautiful Stella York gown, which she bought from Tilly Mint Weddings in Hampshire. Matt’s suit is the perfect complement, and I just love his bowtie, which absolutely makes his look! And look at that wonderful bouquet! Talented bride Chloe did all of the flowers herself, with help from her mother and sister in law. The colour scheme was burgundy and mustard, with lots of creamy white and greens. It worked beautifully with the venue! Chloe loves flowers and told me she’s looking to get into event floristry in the near future… so watch this space!

Happy Sunday, lovelies! I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend – and staying toasty warm, wherever you are! Today we have a pretty wedding from Woodhall Manor in Suffolk. Bride Cara looks beautiful in a sleeveless, lace embroidered dress by Ronald Joyce. Handsome hubby Chris and their nearest and dearest kept it quiet that they’d arranged for Cara’s horse Nero to be brought to the venue on the day, as she’d always dreamed of having him there on her wedding day! The photos, needless to say, are just wonderful. They’re by our lovely friend and English Wedding member Ayshea Goldberg Photography.

I met Ayshea at a wedding fayre and loved the natural relaxed feel of the photos she had taken so I made an appointment with Chris to meet at her gallery to discuss what we wanted and he instantly fell in love with her images too

Getting married abroad will be a dream come true. The joy of blissful sunshine, scenery and a relaxed environment is just so perfect for a wedding – if you’re a destination wedding couple then you are just the luckiest things, truly!

Planning the perfect destination wedding does require a little talent and flexibility on your part when it comes to finding suppliers though! Venue packages might not be quite the right mix for you; overseas planners might not have everything you need. Especially when it comes to wedding photography, do shop around – because the memories of your wedding abroad are so very precious, and it’s really important to find someone to capture your day in a style you will LOVE for years to come.

Hey beautiful! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. Today I have something special to share with you: stunning Paul Zeni wedding dresses and a wonderfully rich and opulent colour palette of deep plums, dusky pinks and luxe textures. I’ve a feeling you’re going to tumble head over heels in love with this shoot – I know I have! Thanks to lovely Sophie Oldhamstead Photography for sharing this with us! Sophie worked with a whole bunch of talented Essex wedding creatives – you’ll find a full list at the end of the feature.

I was totally inspired by a selection of Paul Zeni dresses and their focus on beautiful fabrics and embellishments and felt compelled to orchestrate a styled shoot which would allow us to explore a focus on simple foundations but with a modern, delicate twist.

Turquoise Holidays honeymoon advice

A guest article by Turquoise Holidays

We know what it’s like. After the wave of excitement of your engagement has settled down, your mind turns to planning your wedding. While that’s a huge and important project, at Turquoise Holidays we believe your honeymoon also needs that kind of attention early on. But it’s hard to know where to even start – the destination, style of honeymoon, budget and activities are all common topics couples discuss. We try and answer some of those questions, so you can get your honeymoon plans off to a flying start…

1. What is the best way to plan a honeymoon?

We’d recommend writing down a list of three things that are on each of your bucket lists. Then, look to find somewhere that ticks a few, if not all, of these boxes. Establishing a budget early on will help narrow down your search further, as well as looking at the various good weather windows for the destinations you’re considering. Taking all those factors into account will mean you’re not overwhelmed when you’re looking at where to go and what to do!

Morning lovelies! I have a fun and unique blog to share with you today – all based around the idea of a couple eloping – and taking their beloved dog with them! This is soooo cute and I just love the idea. I’m all for elopements anyway (it’s totally what I’d do!) and the addition of Indy the Hungarian Vizla just makes this all the more adorable.

Images are by Iconik Photography, the venue is Trenderway Weddings and the day was styled and planned by Hannah’s Weddings & Events. The lovely film of the day is by Kate Fierek. See the full supplier list below!

Natalie from Iconik Photography told me, “A dog can be very much part of the family and therefore should play an important part in life’s important events! Elopements are the ideal way of shaking off the “frills” of a large wedding and concentrating on just the two of you. Very much your wedding your way!
