Pastel balloons for a modern wedding at Shenley, with images by Nicola Norton Photography (47)

They say weddings are all about the love, the romance, the emotions and moments… and then someone shows me THESE BALLOONS and suddenly weddings are all about that instead!! Am I wrong? But aren’t they fun and pretty and brilliant? I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding because – [balloons, obviously?] – it’s a real family affair, with the little ones even helping to make the wedding favours! The venue is London Shenley Club (Hertfordshire). The pics by our lovely friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography are a breath of fresh air, the details are wonderfully creative and Becky and Liam are just the most gorgeous-looking pair too!

Becky and Liam described their big day as like a big, summer children’s birthday party, with cricket! They included all the best things about summer: the outdoors, sunshine, cricket, Pimms, barbecued food, ice cream, children running around in the grass… and you know what? When a wedding is all about family and children it becomes SO much FUN!

Rosalind Miller wedding cakes 2019 (16)

Wedding cakes are crowd pleasers – everyone waits for the ‘cutting the cake’ moment at any traditional wedding. And who doesn’t love that wedding cakes are all sponge and chocolate flavoured layers these days?! I get it. Wedding cakes are one tradition we love to keep (while I for one am perfectly happy to throw nearly every other tradition out the window!) – and Rosalind Miller‘s new wedding cake collection fits the bill perfectly.

The sugar paste peonies in this cake make a real statement – but it’s the design on the cake itself which we LOVE!

I’d love to be closer to some of England’s beautiful historic cities – just to be able to explore the architecture and beautiful craftsmanship from days gone by. Seeing news from some of the glorious spaces which are now hosting weddings in Oxford has me yearning to be able to visit – and this sounds like such an exciting event I wanted to share it with all of you.

The Bodleian Libraries is throwing open the doors to its unique wedding showcase at 7pm, Saturday 3 November 2018. The event will take place in the historic Divinity School, Convocation House and Chancellor’s Court, all within the Libraries’ site in central Oxford and at the Sheldonian Theatre next to the Bodleian Libraries.

Guests will be greeted with a glass of fizz on arrival at the free event. A host of Oxford’s finest wedding suppliers as well as the Bodleian’s in-house wedding team will be on hand to inspire and advise prospective brides and grooms on how to achieve their dream wedding in the Bodleian Libraries’ special historic spaces.

“The Venue – Monks Withecombe in Devon – is owned by Nicky and Simon who are just wonderful people, so welcoming. Tea and coffee were flowing and we were made so welcome. The venue is formed of an art gallery (ceremony room), and a corn barn for the reception. A floral feast of a courtyard surrounded by formal gardens, a spectacular orchard and a glorious field over looking the vast stretch that is Dartmoor. More than that, the special things that caught my eye were the rickety old door, the hand picked sweet peas from the garden and the dry petal confetti.

Happy Monday lovelies! Did you have a nice weekend? We were in Manchester – had a lovely time at the folk festival on Thursday night, then shopped on Friday and met up with family, and I had a lovely calligraphy workshop on Saturday afternoon. Coming back into Cumbria was nice… it’s always such a relief to see the sea and mountains again after a trip away! My last calligraphy class this year will be on the 7th of December, and we’re going all festive with lovely ideas for gift tags, Christmas cards etc. Do join me – there’s more info here and as always I’m looking for a wedding photographer to take beautiful pics of the class in return for a massive discount off the ticket price. Get in touch if you can help!

A helicopter treat for Laura & Matt's Upcote Barn wedding with Martin Dabek Photography (7)

Soooo….. who’s planning to arrive at their wedding venue in a helicopter then? Nope? Hadn’t crossed your mind? It wouldn’t have been on my list either until today’s rather exciting Cotswolds wedding landed on my screen. But oh – what an adventure, and what memories to have from your wedding day!! Laura and Matt really did create an exceptional wedding, with vibrant florals and a stunning colour palette. The helicopter ride makes their day really unique!! Lucky for us, our friend Martin Dabek Photography went along for the ride and captured every thrilling moment up in the skies with the bride and her dad on their way to the church!

Hello lovelies and happy Friday! I’m currently in Manchester prepping for (lunch) my calligraphy workshop tomorrow – it’s a sell out and I’m so excited! – but couldn’t leave English Wedding without a gorgeous feature for your Friday… and oh my, this wedding is special! Kate is more stunning than I have words for, in a beautiful Suzanne Neville gown. She tried on over 100 wedding dresses… and I’m so glad she found this divine design from Suzanne’s collection because it is breathtaking.

Let’s not forget the gorgeous groom – Jonathan’s black tie wedding look is just perfect: the tux is from Hugo Boss, with a bow tie from Tom Ford – I love this American wedding trend, which we’re seeing more and more in the UK these days. Oh, and before I forget – that opulent flower wall? Hired from Silks in Bloom. Isn’t it amazing?!

The English Wedding Blog showcases Kelsey Rose 2019 bridal collection (29)

There’s a blog post on the Kelsey Rose blog right now which I absolutely loved reading – about creating “timeless magic at affordable prices” – and I absolutely love them for that. In the wake of a royal wedding and with a trend for luxe, opulent floristry and wedding styling on the rise, I do love to see a more affordable, but still beautiful, bridal collection. Kelsey Rose’s Ivory Collection for 2019 ticks all the boxes – the dresses are stunning and with a timeless appeal. We introduced their bridesmaids collection on English Wedding a few weeks ago – now it’s time for their beautiful bridal gowns to make an entrance!

The 2019 Ivory Collection from Kelsey Rose is sleek and classic, with tactile beauty for a contemporary bridal look.

Speciality beading adorns divine satins, soft chiffons and luxe organza across the collection. Expert fabric combinations add a tactile beauty to these bridal gowns, with delicate lace and crepe styles a key feature of the Kelsey Rose 2019 collection.


It wouldn’t be English summertime without marquees popping up in fields everywhere for country fairs, parties and of course weddings! But wedding marquees come in all shapes and sizes, and the logistics of booking a marquee are more than a little complicated! Here are some common wedding marquee fails – and tips to help you avoid them!


Wedding marquee fail #1 – the unexpected water feature in the corner

Think of your wedding marquee as a big tent. Remember camping? You know tent pegs? A marquee has a slightly bigger version – basically marquees are supported by long stakes which are hammered into the ground. If there’s an underground water pipe in the wrong place, you’ll get more than a sprinkling of confetti on your big day! (And the thought of the marquee company hammering into a gas pipeline is terrifying.)

How to avoid it

Make sure your marquee company does a site visit before you book or pay your deposit. Of course, if your wedding venue has a regularly used marquee site, it’s likely to be a far safer bet!
