Hey lovely wedding supplier friends – I hope you’re all hanging in there. I’ve been email-chatting with a few of you, I know things are really really tough right now. For those of you with weddings in the last few weeks – I’m so happy you’re back out there, doing what you love. For those of you waiting for 2021, I hear you. I don’t mention it much, as I know lovely Annabel has it covered. (And I recommend her Facebook group for suppliers, if anyone’s not already in there.) Anyways – much is happening here at English Wedding HQ. I’d like to think that as the blogger with a small wedding business I understand a little of how this is affecting everyone, on a personal level. (I’m still desperately trying to work out how to pivot…)
Hey lovelies! I hope you’re looking forward to the weekend… I know, I know – we’re a day ahead but it’s sunny and I’m feeling weekendy already! So here’s a little something to make you smile and share some of those imaginary Friday vibes I’m feeling a day early! Today’s feature is a beautiful shoot from English Wedding member Sigi Kirkpatrick Photography. The Stuart Parvin dresses are just fabulous (the one that features most is “New York State of Mind”. Every detail is glorious, from Print for Love‘s elegant stationery to the stunning creation by Nightingale Cakes – and Ruby and Grace‘s florals just bring it all together beautifully. Arrangements include Provence roses, peonies and hydrangeas, elderberry, olive branches and eucalyptus, allium, lisianthks and chocolate cosmos.
We’re all rethinking weddings right now I reckon. All the preconceptions of what a wedding “should” be are being flung out of windows and we’re downsizing while shifting the focus from colour palettes and decor onto family and the luxury of just being together. So as always, when a York Place Studios wedding comes along, I’m thrilled because that refreshing, different, glorious perspective shines brightly.
When I get a credit for “Beer” in a couple’s list of favourite suppliers, I know to expect a pretty special wedding. (Tip: there’s no place for Carling at weddings!) – and Rachel & Shaun’s day lives up to expectations, flies past them in a blaze of beauty and leaves me wanting more. Their day was epic. They’re a gorgeous couple, the vibe of the entire day is joyful – the smiles never stop from bridal prep through to the evening spent crowdsurfing. I love these two. All images are by Midlands wedding photographer and English Wedding member J S Coates Wedding Photography, who gets a glowing review from our happy couple!
Today’s wedding styled shoot needs no introduction from me other than to say you’ll want to stop everything (perhaps grab a lovely cup of camomile tea) and slow your scrolling. The images by Red Maple Photography speak for themselves; the florals and styling are divine, the dress fit for a goddess. This is internet-winning, breathtakingly beautiful stuff. I hope you love it as much as I do!
