Blush wedding ideas photographed by Jenny Heyworth Photography at Aspire Photography Training (32)

The key to styling your wedding in 2017 will be mixed colour palettes. I have the huge pleasure of working with many talented wedding stylists, and they all have an instinct for combining gorgeous colours to create inspiring and pretty wedding themes. Today I wanted to show you some beautiful ideas for one of the hottest colours in weddings: blush pink.

The girls at Aspire Photography Training put together this stunning styled shoot full of blush pink wedding ideas. Combining lush textures and materials (I just adore the wood & silk ribbon combo, don’t you?!) they styled a fabulous tablescape around a blush pink theme.

Mixing and matching elements to create a theme is so important. I love the brass candlestick and vessels alongside trailing foliage and a mixed floral centrepiece here. The divine florals are by lovely Katie at Made in Flowers (Kendal) and styling is by gorgeous Yasmin Joughin for Aspire.

Today’s is a wedding with breathtaking photography, a truly gorgeous bride and groom, beautiful details and the most amazing venue: “Guesten Hall at Avoncroft didn’t need much decoration as the roof is decoration enough and we didn’t want to take away from it.

“We added some small touches, such as photographs of various family members from key moments in their lives as well as amusing photos from our childhood and strung fairy lights across the hall to add a bit of sparkle.

We made a lot! All the name places were hand-stamped, and we cut out hundreds of hearts from wildflower paper for the wedding favours. We started the handmade elements at least a year before the wedding, so there was no last minute rush or panic.”

What else does your wedding photographer do? I love that every creative person I know has another string to their bow… some photographers also shoot sports, or families, specialise in SEO or designer stationery. For Jo and Nic (Jo Hansford Photography) it’s something a little more exciting… and I LOVE this shoot!

We’re Jo and Nic, who have been capturing weddings all over UK, overseas in Italy and Spain together since 2003 – over 350 weddings and counting! In 2012 we decided to add a new string to our bow and we started capturing horses. Having grown up loving riding and horses, I was fascinated to capture these stunning, majestic animals in the artform of still photographs.

By the beginning of 2016, it felt like time to combine our two big passions in a creative shoot with horses and brides. Needless to say, we also wanted to do something a bit different!

Designer wedding cakes by Rosalind Miller on the English Wedding Blog (7)

How gorgeous? I mean, these designer wedding cakes are as beautiful to look at as they are (I’ve been told) yummy to eat. Stocked in Harrods, admired by wedding bloggers, mags, brides and grooms everywhere – get inspired by some of the most stunning wedding cakes you’ll see this year.

Imagine hoiking up your wedding dress, straddling your bike and pelting it to the church on a gorgeous vintage bicycle. The romance, the wind in your hair, perhaps a little wicker basket on the front for your shoes and bouquet….

Image credit: Jennifer Sinclair Photography
(This is Jennifer’s bike and she loves it – it’s as much a part of her lifestyle as can be!)

No?

If this is you, and you cycle everywhere and love your bike to the extent you can’t live a day without it, then I applaud you. (You’re a rare gem, I envy your fitness level and the rest of the article doesn’t apply to you!)

Unless you’re fanatic cyclists and having a cycling theme for your day, there probably shouldn’t be bikes at your wedding venue. They became a big trend – riding in, so to speak, on the wave of vintage a few years back.

An English wedding with an Italian twist? Oh yes… Suzanne and Glenn’s wedding party, which is all kinds of gorgeous, followed an intimate Italian wedding in Florence. So all their friends in the UK could share in the celebrations, they had a reception back home – and it rocks.

“As we had a marquee all the decoration was down to us, we tried to keep it quite simple with cream carpet a white linings a lot of the marquee was open so to bring the outside area in. We hired a bar made from wooden pallets and a few other vintage features from Idyllic days.

I made invites, menus, and a wooden pallet filled with pictures of our families on their wedding days. I love anything like that and really enjoyed finding all the perfect elements for each project.”

Today’s styled shoot features a cast of north west wedding superstars, creative talents I’ve admired since the beginning of the English Wedding Blog a whole 6 years ago. Kerry Baker‘s fabulous make up steals the show. Flowers by Red Floral are breathtaking. Jane at HF Couture‘s designer hair accessories are exquisite; the images by Teresa C Photography are out of this world. This is bridal style without compromise: a brave, striking and different look for those of you who don’t wear pastels. I LOVE this.

Not every bride dreams of a pretty pastel wedding. In the modern age of Pinterest and social media, we are seeing couples experiment more and more with texture and colour. One trend which is set to become very popular is the used of mixed metallics to dress the venue, creating a lavish, decadent and opulent style.

Beautiful Trearddur Bay wedding blog with York Place Studios photography (43)

Every wedding I see is a story: a tale of two people – surrounded by dozens of people who love them – declaring their love and celebrating it with every fibre of their beings. Today’s gorgeous wedding blog is all about the story, and you’re about to share the very best moments from Helen and Rich’s best day ever. There are lots – because the party is what it’s all about. These guys really did have the time of their lives…

Our gorgeous couple celebrated at the Boathouse Hotel, Trearddur Bay, in Anglesey. I do love the little details, and today’s wedding blog is no exception: the little boats, the cake, Helen’s stunning dress, the flowers… but I’ve also come to appreciate that top hats look best on the dancefloor, and that a massive part of any wedding story takes place after the sun goes down!

Your Wednesday just got a whole lot more AMAZING… because we have the most beautiful boho wedding for you to get all inspired by this morning. I love everything – Abigail’s dress and her stunning plait, Mark’s super cool look (and his first dance story!), the flowers, the tipi, the wedding bake-off… and I very much think you will be as bowled over by this stunning wedding as I was!

English wedding blog in Newcastle with images by Chocolate Chip Photography (4)Claire

“We aren’t a particularly traditional couple, so we knew from the off that a castle or a fancy hotel wasn’t for us. We knew we wanted a real earthy, bohemian feel so after seeing an advertisement on a magazine we just knew we had to have a tipi. Pitching it at our local cricket club was the ideal place.

“Over the year of planning, my initial earthy theme started to morph into a more Country Garden feel. I sourced some great watering cans and Mark painstakingly cut wood slices for my centerpieces. My florist then filled these with a beautiful arrangement of garden flowers.

FEATURED

I love this idea! A group of local wedding suppliers coming together to create something inspiring, with no preconceptions, no rules, just creative freedom… and the result is a stunning shoot with a fabulous tablescape and tons of gorgeous greenery. This is wonderful.

Today’s wedding is guaranteed to bring a smile: the colours are stunning, the styling absolutely beautiful, and the bride and groom gorgeous as can be! Elaine & Matt were married at West Tower, Aughton, and describe their best day ever as “a traditional, bright and colourful day filled with smiles“.

“I wanted a vintage classic dress that would suit my petite figure. However all I knew was that I wanted some lace and a high neck, so I was very open minded.

“In order to give the illusion of height I went for a more figure hugging design. I tried on a huge variety and loved the whole experience of trying on all styles. However, when I put on the dress I chose I knew it was ‘the one.’ My mum could tell by the huge smile on my face.”

This morning lovely blog readers I have the prettiest real wedding for you – a gorgeous bride and groom and one of England’s most stunning venues – Hampton Court. You’ll adore this! Beautiful bride Joanne told me all about their day (don’t miss the full English Wedding Blog interview at the bottom of the post!)

Spring wedding in London Hampton Court Captured by Katrina (71)

“Our wedding style was a mixed bag – but oh so personal – and everyone commented on the personal touches. We used spring time blooms – lots of pastels and soft pinks and blush mixed with lime green to signify the start of spring and the start of a new adventure for Archie and I.

Given that I am from South Africa but decided to get married in the UK, we made sure that our wedding theme had lots of personal South African touches mixed in with English traditions. These included:

  • biltong snacks on our boat trip from our church to Kingston upon Thames down to Hampton Court.
