What a wonderful weekend it’s been already – I hope you’re having a peaceful and relaxing Sunday wherever you are, lovelies! I have a super pretty wedding to share with you from Oxfordshire’s Caswell House today. I hope you love it – it’s from one of our lovely English Wedding Blog sponsors, Carol Elizabeth Photography.

Traditional Oxford wedding styling for a pretty summer wedding with Carol Elizabeth Photography (35)

Caswell House in Oxford was the perfect venue – it’s a beautiful venue with lots of areas for photos. The team at Caswell are incredible, they made every effort on the day to make it special, including bringing canapés during the photos!

Hannah and Tim are fortunate enough to have a very talented family friend who arranged their venue flowers and Hannah’s Nan is a retired florist so she arranged the bouquets. Most of the flowers were sourced from Green & Gorgeous flower farm and supplemented with some supermarket flowers and greenery from home. The rented milk churns and watering cans, vases and jam jars were perfect for other displays and table flowers.

I love all the thought and time Jess put into styling her wedding to Antony! The detail of her dress and hairpiece are so pretty; I adore the bunting too. Everything about this day sings of summer, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do! Have a glorious day, everyone!

“The wedding was all my brainchild. It was as much as a surprise to Antony on the day as it was with everybody else. Luckily I had time 2 and half years of planning time which was important to me as I wanted to be involved in every process! It started with a mood board on Pinterest, lots and lots of car boot sale and charity shop trips hunting for tea cups and saucers, craft weekends and days spend tackling the Amazon which was my inlaws’ garden. I can’t take all the credit: I have a fantastic family who helped make my dream come true. In particular my mother in law who spent hours and hours shopping, painting and gluing!

Happy Friday my lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a brilliant week and are ready for the weekend… which starts, for me, pretty much now!! Before I reach for a prosecco though, I LOVE today’s featured wedding and have been so excited to share it with you!!! Gorgeous Krissy and Simon’s beach pics are my fave, they’re wonderful.

Super lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Ayshea Goldberg got in touch a little while ago  with this lovely wedding from May. She told me the weather wasn’t great (VERY windy and chilly) but Krissy and Simon still insisted on going to the beach for their photos – and we’re both thrilled that they did!

“The day was full of homemade details, Krissy’s nanna had made the silk flower bouquets (which looked really nice), and Krissy made all the bunting and table centrepieces herself. The cake was made by Simon’s Mum in their favourite flavours – including a gluten free option. Their cake topper included a little black cat as they have a rescue cat called Winnie. They wanted a very DIY, easy going vibe which is exactly what they achieved.”

Where on earth should a wedding business spend their advertising pennies in such a busy market? Good old magazines, whose printed pages stick around for a while (but cost a fortune)? Or Facebook ads, Instagram promotions… Perhaps wedding fairs are more your thing – but if you’re shy when it comes to meeting people and ‘selling’ your brand face to face, I totally get that because I’m like that too. For me, wedding blog advertising is the answer. It’s worked for me for the last eight years – and I’m very happy to say the English Wedding Blog now has two options for advertisers to join our little team.

I wouldn’t dream of selling advertising / sponsor slots on the blog if I didn’t believe it works. The English Wedding Blog is the main source of online visitors to my wedding calligraphy site – just from a monthly (or so) feature and a little banner ad. So I know it works for me.

Boho wedding styling is massively popular for 2018 and I’m a huge fan of the peacock chair / palm fronds / forehead jewellery look. Throw in an eastern rug and bare toes and you’ve stolen my heart completely. But for those of you who don’t want to go full boho – especially if you have your heart set on a traditional bridal gown – I have something very special to share with you today.

Charlotte Balbier’s 2018 Bohemian Blush collection of wedding gowns incorporates the best of boho styling with traditional fabrics, silhouettes and embellishment. All the gowns are hand-created from the finest French laces, soft flowing chiffons, layered organzas, rich mikados and silk tulles. The 2018 colour palette introduces ballet pink, sugared peach, blush pinks and peach, pearled ivory and a pistachio green alongside the classic and ever-popular ivory and champagne shades.

Chair covers can hide a multitude of stains, scrapes and unsightly patterns… but let’s be honest, those white polyester covers are pretty hideous! I’ve never been a fan – I cannot understand why some venues still provide grotty chairs which need to be hidden, while others simply buy beautiful Chiavari or elegant wooden chairs for their weddings! Luckily lovely Hollie from Daisy Says I Do has shared her simple solutions with us today.

Chairs – how a modern bride makes wedding chairs beautiful

“Many venues now have simple and stylish furniture, however some venues’ chairs may still be in need of a little update. If your budget allows I would recommend hiring something different whether it be a simple Chiavari chair, a wooden or white fold up chair or a mix and match vintage collection in rich dark wood for a relaxed, rustic style.

As a girl who pretty much lives her working life on the internet, it makes such a wonderful difference to my day when I get a phone call from this fabulously inspiring, warm and brilliant lady. I’m thrilled – more than I can say – to be welcoming lovely Surrey wedding planner and stylist Jenna Hewitt to the English Wedding Blog today. She’s brimming with advice and has shared some incredible styling images with us today – there’s a LOT more to come so please, lovelies – read on!

By James Evans, Public Speaking Coach & Stand-Up Comedian

Picture the scene: A close friend calls you up. ‘Hi, how you doing? Look, I know it’s not really your thing, but would you mind doing ten minutes of stand-up comedy in front of a room half full of friends and half full of total strangers? It’d mean a lot to me.’ You want to put the phone down but you can’t. They’ve just asked you to be their best man and give a brilliantly funny speech at their wedding.

All images in this blog feature are by London wedding photographer Kristian Leven, and have previously featured on the English Wedding Blog. See more: English-Wedding.com/tag/kristian-leven-photography

It’s no wonder that as a public speaking coach, so many of my clients come to me with terror in their eyes. But they don’t need to be so scared and neither do you. Take a deep breath. I’m going to get you through this  …

Gorgeous Hertfordshire bride Anita is making a splash of fabulous colour on the English Wedding Blog today. Her vintage inspired styling is balanced with vibrant accents, and I’m in love with her Sally Beam wedding dress – isn’t it fab? Together with groom Naoto they planned the perfect day, and I love how refreshing their styling is. I hope you’ll adore it too!

Vibrant colours and beautiful styling for a Shenley Cricket Club wedding by Linus Moran Photography (30)

“I had mixed, bright flowers including roses and gerberas. I wanted the flowers to add a burst of colour and fun to the church and venue. Florist Sioned Rogers works alongside ‘Dress it Yourself‘ who did an amazing job of decorating the venue. I wanted a vintage picnic feel so I went for gingham tablecoths, bunting and lots of vintage containers and books to dress the tables. I made the table plan with a chalkboard and then had silk flowers stapled around the frame. It was actually quite fun to make and lots of people complemented it!

Thistles and kilts for a Scottish themed wedding in Penrith, with Jessica Lang Photography (12)

Today’s wedding is wonderful. A glorious mix of Lakeland and Scottish styling touches, with home grown flowers (all of them – isn’t that amazing?!), DIY details and the most beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. The venue is lovely Askham Hall, which looks fabulous and has the most incredible gardens for outdoor shots. I think my fave thing about Cally and Colin’s wedding is all the help they had from friends and family to bring their day together, and all the personal touches – an heirloom kilt; hand painted table names; oh! and a genius idea of a song from the best men which Cally explains in her interview below. You’ll love this…

A friend and colleague recommended Jess, then we met and viewed her portfolio and loved the natural, candid shots and gorgeous scenery. Jess seemed able to capture the best of every aspect in her photographs, and her relaxed and bubbly demeanour put us instantly at ease. We knew straight away that she was the right photographer for us.

Tales of the sea - inspirational beach wedding style fromSerpentine Shores and Salt & Sea Photography (28)

Sometimes images speak for themselves; sometimes they sing. Today’s billowing, seaweed-scented shoot has a yearning, breathtaking aesthetic which lightens my heart with its beauty. Styled by the wonderful Serpentine Shores Co. and photographed by Salt & Sea Photography, it’s simply perfect and will appeal to beach brides everywhere.

Tales of the sea - inspirational beach wedding style fromSerpentine Shores and Salt & Sea Photography (22)

Bleak, wild, billowing and windswept; our inspiration for this shoot was stories of mythology, both Celtic and Classical. Particularly stories based around the coast and ocean. Stories foretelling of the sea’s peculiar, poetic and enigmatic nature. Subtly, our narrative was one of a sailor, a shipwreck, a sea spirit and a Shakespearean storm.

Tales of the sea - inspirational beach wedding style fromSerpentine Shores and Salt & Sea Photography (14)

Playing on these ideas of folklore and fables, we sought to tell a story that was ethereal, ornate, organic and untamed. Through delicate drapes, washed-up relics and cascading ship sails, we sought to illustrate all that is salty, prosaically simple and down to earth and yet sublime. Fusing the Cornish and Grecian, we sought to create something intimate, otherworldly and ‘of the sea’.
