Kimberley and Francesco’s wedding is wonderfully sophisticated with an Italian twist. I love it when grooms look a little different, and Francesco’s black suit and dickie bow are just wonderful!

Kimberley is so very beautiful – her lacy dress is gorgeous and the details of the day are really pretty and romantic – the soft pinks of the roses, the prettily styled wedding cake… this all adds up to a classic, feminine English wedding – and it’s lovely.

My wedding flowers were soft whites and pinks, mainly roses – they were arranged by Oops a Daisy in Cirencester. They were great as I wasn’t sure what I wanted but they sat with me and showed me the different flowers we could have and how they looked together.

I do love how weddings give the perfect opportunity to glamour things up to the max. Today’s celebration is beautiful and then some. A statement bouquet, a gorgeous bride in the most fabulous dress, and such a stunning venue! Every detail is just wonderful… I do hope you love this as much as I do!

Glamorous Gatsby wedding from Prestwold Hall on the English Wedding Blog (18)

Our theme came from my love of the Great Gatsby, I’ve watched the film and read the book a million times. The whole day from the invitations to the decorations and dress were inspired by the 1920’s era, featuring quotes from the book and patterns from the art deco period. With me being a designer for a living it was really easy to translate the designs from the invitations across to the rest of the theme for the wedding.

Rain on your wedding day will always mean you have the best stories to tell, and a collection of very memorable moments of your day. I love today’s real wedding story, which tells the tale of one of our favourite wedding bands, booked to play two sets on an English summer’s day for an outdoor wedding. It’s about near-disaster, sheer professionalism, and that famous ‘the show must go on’ attitude… Grab a cuppa and enjoy the ride! Oh, and do spare a thought for your musicians (and their gear) if you’re having an outdoor ceremony!

Real wedding at Cadhay House by Kristian Leven Photography (9)

Teetering on the brink of disaster. That’s not a phrase that anyone wants to hear, especially when it’s being used to describe one of the most important days of your life. As a wedding band we are hired for our professionalism and being able to deliver high-quality entertainment to really make your wedding reception a night to remember. But what if something disastrous happens? What if that is then followed by something else equally as catastrophic? Twice. All at the same wedding. How could it seem that the whole day was plummeting into the abyss of doom?

Wow!!! Today’s is a wedding which will grab your attention instantly! I absolutely loved the daytime portraits of Alice and James, and then the evening light transformed this day into something incredibly, unbelievably beautiful.

The loveliest golden hour bridal portraits you'll see - by Nicola Casey Photography (25)

We got married and had the reception at The Old Hall in Ely just outside of Cambridge. It’s a beautiful venue and we got married in their gazebo overlooking a lake and Ely cathedral.

The loveliest golden hour bridal portraits you'll see - by Nicola Casey Photography (24)

The venue and scenery were so beautiful we didn’t need to worry about decorations too much as it was so beautiful itself. Our photographer Nicola Casey Photography did a great job capturing the surroundings in the photos, the fields ready for harvest, the tall reeds by the lakes, and our reflection across the water with the moody clouds above us.

I love today’s wonderful winter wedding – I know you’ll adore the bouquets, and bride Hayley looks absolutely gorgeous. Also – they hired a Jag for the whole week? Genius!! I love that!

Baubles, glamour and vintage-inspired wedding style at Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire with Olivia Johnston wedding photography (18)

I had the stereotypical crying-in-front-of-the-mirror experience when I found my dress! I had gone in with a very set vision of what I wanted, but then Lauren the sales assistant suggested something totally different. I was feeling open minded so tried it on, and ended up buying that dress.

Baubles, glamour and vintage-inspired wedding style at Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire with Olivia Johnston wedding photography (27)

My bridesmaids wore stunning emerald green multiway wrap dresses which I bought from a seller on Etsy. I wanted all three girls to be comfortable and the wrap dresses meant that they could decide exactly how they wanted to style their dress; sleeveless, halterneck, one shoulder or with sleeves. We paired it with a cream cashmere pashmina to keep them warm.

Don’t panic! Everything will come together on the day. What might feel like a total disaster before hand (the tablecloths aren’t quite the right shade of ivory!) will be completely trivial once you are face to face saying your vows. That’s the most important bit.

I’m a girl who layers. I love burying into all my winter layers, draping fabrics, combining styles and colours for a wonderfully floaty, creative look. Layering is such a genius way to wear anything – and I LOVE that London designer Naomi Neoh has created her 2017 bridal collection with layering and versatility in mind. Oh, and it’s the most beautiful collection I’ve seen – I had to share because I’m sure you’ll fall head over heels for these gowns too!

Eden by Naomi Neoh bridal collection for 2017 (27)

Noami’s 2017 Eden Collection is a new philosophy of bridal dress.

Eden by Naomi Neoh bridal collection for 2017 (12)

For 2017 Naomi Neoh has created a collection of bridal layers. Start with our corseted, crepe under-dress designed to support and flatter your curves, creating a svelte silhouette.

Style your own personal look with silk and lace over-layers, diaphanous skirts, French lace jackets, chic camisoles, silk corsages and delicately beaded sashes. Transform your outfit from day to evening by simply changing tops and adding different accessories.

Today’s lovely bride Ruth got in touch with me to show me her wonderfully creative woodland wedding to Stolly. They married this summer, celebrating in a woodland clearing – the space had nothing; they hired tipis and decorated the space themselves (along with lots of help from friends and family). I love how the woodland setting comes into its own in the evening, with fabulous lighting and areas for everyone to chat, dance and toast marshmallows around the fire! This is beautiful, free and goes to show there are no rules when it comes to wedding planning!

P&W Images shot this wonderfully colourful woodland wedding in the Cotswolds (11)

“I made all of our stationery, from detail on the name places to table name centrepieces and the mirror table plan and drinks list. I also painted signs on wood to decorate the trees – I love arts and crafts. I’m an interior designer so wanted a wedding that was a blank canvas that we could put our own stamp on. We love visiting Stolly’s family in the Cotswolds and wanted an outdoor wedding. We found the perfect woods near them but there was nothing there so we made everything beforehand: both families and my incredible bridesmaids helped us basically build a festival.

Hello!

We got into music for the love of the art itself and once we could play a bit, we loved it for the performing too. We love to play live because we love music and we love to watch other people like you love it with us. Music is powerful and we want to make sure you enjoy us or any wedding band you book to the fullest. That’s why in our series of free guides designed to help and inform you, we picked “what to look for in a wedding band” as the first one.

Even though this article speaks from years of experience, some of our advice may put you off booking with us but we don’t mind, we are happier knowing you have the information and knowledge to make the right decision for you when it comes to booking a live band for your wedding.

We hold our hands up, we do use the way we advertise and run live acts as examples in some of the topics below so you could class that as a bit of shameless plugging. Sorry!

Choosing someone to photograph the most important day of your life is a daunting task. Search through Google and everyone has a fancy website and the social media accounts all full of beautiful images. How on earth do you make a decision?

You will only know which photographer is right to capture your wedding when you meet them. The main purpose of meeting potential photographers is to make sure that you will be able to trust them and feel comfortable around them. In the digital age it is easy to send an email, but nothing beats meeting face to face. One thing we like to remind couples is that you will spend almost as much time with your photographer during your wedding day as you will with each other, so make sure you both get on with them.

You will already have questions to ask them, but is there anything technical you might need to know? Is there something that will mean your images are better protected?

Hello beautiful! I hope you’re having the most wonderful week. I’ve been super busy with my calligraphy pens recently, dreaming up something which many of you have asked me about – and I’m thrilled to say my online calligraphy workshop is finally here!! Wherever you are in the country, you can now learn calligraphy for your wedding from the comfort of your own home 🙂

The workshop is based around 6 video tutorials of calligraphy demonstrations, tips and advice. Each video is around 5-10 minutes long.

Every week you’ll receive a new video, which comes with practice worksheets for you to print. In 3 weeks you’ll learn how to write a pretty modern alphabet – enough to design your own wedding invitations, address envelopes and write place name tags.

By the end of the 6 week workshop you will know how to write a beautiful modern calligraphy script with a traditional dip pen. You’ll be ready to develop your own lettering style, and you’ll be writing and framing your calligraphy quotes to hang on your walls!

Today you get to see one of the loveliest weddings to grace my inbox this year. The ideas are wonderful; the craftsmanship fabulous on so many levels. Gorgeous bride Emma made her own dress and corset – she looks amazing and I love her style! I love the flowers, the way the venue looks, the bar(!) – how cool does that look?! – and Peter and Emma are just perfect together.
