How was your weekend, lovely people? We escaped to the hills in the Lakes yesterday – it was beautifully sunny, and (unbelievably after last weekend) t-shirt weather! Yay!! I hope you had the most wonderful weekend and got some sunshine too!

Now you may have seen Zade Film Co in the English Wedding Directory. (Take a peek here!) As soon as I saw their website I knew we had to feature beautiful Kimberley and Ben’s wedding at Grendon Court. Grab a cuppa, watch it here – the happy couple were blessed with such a perfect summer’s day, and captured beautifully by Zade Film Co.

We had the pleasure of filming Kimberley & Ben’s stunning wedding in Herefordshire last September. The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful St Catherine’s Church in Hoarwithy, an amazing Italianate Romanesque and Byzantine church with stunning architecture. We then moved onto to Grendon Court, a scenic barn style venue surrounded by rolling Herefordshire hills.

Beautiful bride Kirsty and Simon’s wedding is wonderfully summery with beautiful florals in the most idyllic setting. The couple had gone to great lengths to set up their marquee reception at home, and Simon’s mum had been working on their garden for a very long time to ensure it was just perfect and full of blooming flowers and greenery. Their wedding celebrations made for a lovely relaxed afternoon, complete with ice cream and croquet on the front lawn.

“We decorated the marquee with bunting. Our friend had made us a beautiful bar out of used pallets. The tables had hessian and lace runners and log slice centre peices with an assortment of silk flowers in milk bottles and jam jars. As we were having an afternoon tea the tables were laid out with mismatched vintage China which added to the decor. We made all of our own stationery, even cutting out hundreds of small triangles in different floral patterns to make bunting which was the theme of the invites. We had rubber stamps made up of our names and wedding date for the front of the invite and printed the inserts ourselves. We made all of our wedding favours which were small jars of sweets which also doubled as place settings as they had guests’ names on.”

Happy weekend!! Oh, this one’s been a long time coming… we’re heading out to the Lakes for adventures today, but I had to share this gorgeous wedding with you first! Beautiful bride Sarah and gorgeous hubby’s Rob’s big day was in Worcestershire, with the reception in a 15th century barn (The Fleece Inn, Bretforton). I love the warm atmosphere of their day which just shines in all the photos – Sarah’s smile and oh, that dress!!!

“Our flowers were done by my amazingly talented cousin Anna who runs a floristry business called ‘Wedding flowers in Cornwall’. We wanted to incorporate thistles into our flowers as we got engaged in Scotland. (Rob proposal on a secluded beach in Dunbar, incidentally my new married name). We went primarily for white flowers with sand roses to highlight in my bouquet and lots of greenery. We also had white gladioli in the church hanging downwards that were just gorgeous.

Glamorous Edinburgh wedding with Jade Osborne Photography (28)

Stunning bride Jill & Luke were married at Carlowrie Castle last year in a beautiful wedding full of glamour. Their minimal, elegant styling is wonderful – and set to be a big trend for 2018 / 2019 weddings! Jill wore a stunning Suzanne Neville gown and Jimmy Choo shoes, and Luke and his groomsmen were in black tie.  Jill’s bridesmaids wore matching cowl back gold sequin dresses and also had a bridesman wearing his tux with a gold sequin bow tie.

Our wedding florist was recommended to us by Jen at Carlowrie Castle, who had used Vickys Flowers for her own wedding. We had pure white gypsophila with white roses for my own bouquet. Bridesmaids carried pure white gypsophila, Luke’s buttonhole was a white rose, and the groomsmen’s buttonholes were pure white gypsophila. The ceremony table had a pure white gypsophila arrangement, with white pillar boxes that had tall vases with pure white gypsophila.

David and Louise’s wedding is classic, elegant and makes the most of a magnificent venue – the picture gallery at Royal Holloway, University of London. Louise is stunning in an Enzoani gown with a pretty lace layer and delicate straps – a beautiful summer dress. Decoration and styling touches are minimal, with a simple colour palette of navy blue and ivory. Their cake is gorgeous – made by Louise’s friend and former housemate – “she did such an amazing job and we loved it!

“One of the reasons we chose Royal Holloway was that the Picture Gallery where we had our wedding breakfast didn’t need any decoration beyond the tables because you weren’t allowed the touch the expensive paintings! We did decorate our evening reception room though and ordered balloons as well as bringing down the table decorations from the dinner. My aunt also made some lovely bunting to hang.

Happy Wednesday you lovely people! I’m happy to be introducing another new member of the English Wedding team today. Super talented Buckinghamshire wedding photographer Damion Mower joins us and will be sharing some of his beautiful weddings on the blog in the coming months. We first featured Damion’s images when we shared gorgeous Malin and Simon’s Swallows Oast wedding on the blog last month – they left such a glowing review for Damion, and I personally loved how his shots captured the story of their day. So – brilliant news – there’ll be more where that came from and I’d love for you to take a couple of minutes and scroll through some of Damion’s very best shots. Stop and look, and you’ll smile, feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and perhaps even giggle (those heels are high for such a cute little guy!) I’ll hand over to Damion to introduce himself…

Hello there lovely people! It’s a creative day for me in every possible sense – I’ve been writing some beautiful invitations for a friend this morning and will be spending the next couple of hours discovering all the lovely weddings and shoots in my inbox… but first I have to share this stunning creative styling from The Forge in Bristol. I LOVE the paint splatter stationery and beautiful calligraphy by De Winton Paper Co, the colourful styling by lovely English Wedding Directory member Kirsten (Little Wedding Helper) and glorious images. This is wedding styling for artistic souls and I hope you adore it as much as I do! Happy Tuesday everyone!

Tucked away in the middle of Bristol sits The Forge, a beautiful bespoke event space and workshop venue with huge windows, exposed brickwork, bare floorboards and a real New York loft space vibe. As soon as Kirsten Butler, aka The Little Wedding Helper, saw the space from its renovation to completion she knew she wanted to do a shoot to showcase this space and the talents of a local wedding suppliers.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve had the loveliest weekend. Did you spot our two amazing weddings from Priston Mill and Union Club Soho over the weekend? Today we’re heading all the way across to Canterbury for a beautiful summer wedding at Goodnestone Park. The venue is AMAZING and it’s also where Jane Austen stayed just before she wrote Pride & Prejudice.

Photographer Ami from Rubie Love Photography captured their day so beautifully. She told me Polly and James were the most wonderful couple with so much love for one another – and it totally comes across in their images from the day.

The lovely couple had on the day coordination from Georgie at Ethereal Events and beautiful florals by Lucy at Wild Bloom. Polly’s hair and makeup was beautifully done by the girls from Wye Beauty  and entertainment was provided by the highly recommended magician Chris Harding.

Today’s real wedding is a stunner: beautiful bride Sarah wears a breathtaking dress by Jesus Peiro, while her bridesmaids simply shine in vibrant red. Groom Tristan looks amazing in a Horace & Sons suit while his groomsmen (many, as recommended by Sarah in her interview below the images!) look distinctive and dapper in braces and flat caps! This is a stunning wedding shot by our lovely friend and Priston Mill Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek.

Our wedding flowers were big and colourful! Rustic feels to the decorations for the venue but still, lots of colour! Emma Norton was our florist. I cannot tell you how fantastic her work was and how well she understood what I wanted. Perfect.

Other than the flowers, we dotted around a few home made decs but the venue certainly didn’t need this. It is so beautiful and full of character as it is (I mean it has a working watermill in it!!)

Gloriously eclectic and fun Soho wedding with Becky Harley Photography (33)
FEATURED

Chloe and Sam’s chic Soho wedding is wonderfully non-traditional. I love Chloe’s approach to wedding planning – she avoided the traditional suppliers and sought out more unusual things to style their day. The venue (The Union Club) is fabulous – the surroundings just seem to suit Sam and Chloe perfectly, and I think the shots of them just loving walking to the venue and in the surrounding area are unique and fascinating! Flowers are by Wild at Heart and Chloe’s dress is from Phase Eight – doesn’t she look incredible?

Gloriously eclectic and fun Soho wedding with Becky Harley Photography (12)

My wedding dress was sparkly, chic and classic and fitted so nicely. We found it on a high street bridal window shopping spree to generate inspiration and it turned out to be the one. It was also under budget, I initially set out for a different design, I really wanted a loose, boho type dress with long sleeves but couldn’t find any ready to wear ones that I liked. It’s from Phase Eight at John Lewis bridal in Oxford Street.

Beautiful wedding invitations retailer Bride and Groom Direct give their opinion on the biggest and best wedding invitations trends for the upcoming year.

With Christmas only just having passed, and Valentine’s Day just the other week, now is the time when the biggest wedding trends of the year will start to emerge. Last year we were blown away by the beautiful colours and styles we saw featured in weddings around the world, and how they dictated wedding theme trends too, our favourites being rustic and Hollywood styles. This year we’re even more excited to see how the following trends grow and take shape.


Butterfly Wedding Invitations

Butterflies symbolise elegance and beauty and butterfly print is very on trend right now. This makes it a perfect style choice for your invitations and stationery this year. The style can be used to create a very subtle theme, and will tie in beautifully with your spring or summer wedding. Choose from subtle monochrome prints, or choose a design with the colours that you would like to include in your big day.

Peter and I got engaged in May 2017 whilst on holiday in China – Peter proposed on the very first day of our three week holiday, so it was a good job I said yes! As I spend every day talking about and planning weddings, we agreed not to make any plans until we arrived home, so after an amazing holiday, a 24 hour delay and a 12 hour plane journey, our wedding planning began…

For Peter and I, 2019 had to be our year. I have always wanted a spring or summer wedding, and when we took into consideration our day-to-day schedules and other plans we were already committed to, getting married in 2018 would have been too close for comfort. This led to a bit of a problem – my fiancé is adamant that he wants to be married before he is 30 and he is 30 in June 2019! Which meant May 2019 was our best option – longer days, trees and greenery in full bloom, and (fingers crossed) some sunshine!
