There’s something very, very special about letterpress. It’s the way you’re drawn to touch what your eyes are drinking in; the way foil print catches the light; the luscious thick cards and striking colours. As a calligrapher it’s one of my very favourite things…

Today I wanted to show you a few suites by Cotton Letterpress. These guys have a fabulous eye for design: their stationery is exquisitely styled and beautifully produced (I know this: I’ve had the pleasure of adding a little handwritten calligraphy to their invites and envelopes and I loved every second.)

Cotton Letterpress use vintage 1950s presses to create their striking, unique and luxurious wedding stationery.

They’ve just launched their new website and new collections which include a wide variety of themes and styles.

You can choose your own colours for each design (and experiment with how it looks online – trust me; this is so much fun!), and make the most of their online quote builder to easily see how much your wedding stationery will come to.

There are few wedding venues so unique, characterful and charming as Launcells Barton. I’ve refused offers of blog sponsorship from the likes of One Marylebone in London simply because they don’t have that special, intimate atmosphere I fall in love with. The venues I fall head over heels for are those where you’ll instantly feel at home, welcomed and encouraged to create a wedding which reflects your personalities and charms the socks off your guests.

Launcells Barton is one of those very special places which has made it onto the English Wedding Blog’s recommended supplier list. I found a lovely article about the venue which I wanted to share with you today – so grab a cuppa, and come and join me in exploring this wonderful wedding venue in Cornwall.

6 reasons to fall in love with Launcells Barton, Cornwall’s new favourite wedding venue

1. You’ll be marrying in a family-owned, Grade II listed English country house. The same family have owned the house for more than 70 years, restoring it with the care and affection such a beautiful place deserves – and they’ll welcome you and your guests into their unique and magnificent home.

As every newlywed couple will concur, your wedding day passes by in the blink of an eye. One minute you’re waking up at the crack of dawn waiting for the arrival of your hairdresser and before you know it, it’s midnight, your feet hurt from dancing, your guests are leaving and your day is over. There’s nothing you can do to slow down time but there is one very important thing you can do to ensure that you get the most out of your day. Create a wedding day timeline.

It’s probably not the most exciting bit of wedding planning you’re ever going to do. But trust me – it can make the difference between a wonderful wedding day, where you get chance to speak to all your guests, see all your hard work come to fruition, spend time with your new spouse and get the photographs you want.  The alternative?  You wing it. You set a time for your ceremony and hope everything else falls into place.  Your wedding suppliers run around like headless chickens all working to different timescales. The makeup artists doesn’t have enough time to finish your bridesmaids, you’re late to church, your photographer doesn’t get the chance to get the images you’ve asked for, the wedding breakfast is served late, your guests are hungry and bored. You feel rushed and stressed on what should be the happiest day of your life.

Tis the season (as they say) for cosy snuggles and warm fires… and for staying indoors on those long evenings in the company of friends and loved ones. And I guess this applies just as much to weddings as it does to winter evenings at home. For Deborah and Mark, their winter wedding meant choosing the right venue was paramount. And boy, did they get it right…

Huntsham Court is a fabulous wedding venue - real wedding Jennifer Jane Photography (7)

Huntsham Court is wonderful. It’s an exclusive use, country house venue with 34 bedrooms and a super flexible approach to weddings. For today’s bride and groom it meant they could spend the whole weekend there along with friends and family – Huntsham is the loveliest home from home you could ever imagine.

Huntsham Court is a fabulous wedding venue - real wedding Jennifer Jane Photography (10)

Jennifer Jane’s photography style is wonderfully romantic, natural and fresh – I’ve always loved sharing her summer weddings on the blog so this day has been really wonderful to share with you. The images are sublime, with such warmth and character making the most of the soft lighting at Huntsham Court – I adore them.

The New Forest is a wondrous place with sprawling heathlands, magical ancient woodlands and picturesque English villages that make it a special setting. Getting married in such an idyllic location where there are endless opportunities for a gorgeous photograph of the bride and groom is a no-brainer. It’s no wonder the New Forest takes centre stage in this stunning elopement shoot by the fabulous Nisha Haq Photography.

The small towns and villages have a quintessentially English feel with quaint tea rooms and walkways with beautiful New Forest ponies grazing close by. Who wouldn’t want a wedding with ponies in the background of your bridal shots?

For each location in the New Forest, the bride wears a different wedding dress as each dress has its own character that compliments the scenery. All dresses are from the high-street (sourced from ASOS) with the groom’s suit from Moss Bros and it goes to show how easy it can be to get a stunning wedding outfit especially for a low-key style wedding.

I love this wedding, the blues, the pretty bouquet and all of the wonderful handmade touches. Rachel and Damian are a gorgeous couple – and then there’s the venue. Oh, my word – what a fabulous space to celebrate in!!

open barn wedding with DIY decor in Surrey by Penny Young Photography (48)

“We were incredibly fortunate that a family friend, who lives next door to the church we got married in, offered her garden and barns to us. It was such a naturally beautiful and down-to-earth space that we knew without looking anywhere else that it was the place for us. We had the meal in an open barn and then the evening dancing and drinks were opposite in the old barn and marquees. It was very open to the elements and in the whole month leading up to the wedding it was incredibly wet and windy so there were lots of weather-proofing and contingency discussions but in the end we were very lucky with the weather!”

Today’s wedding is breathtaking. The venue is amazing – I love all the statues in the background, especially in the wedding breakfast room. Oh and of course Stephanie is soooo beautiful (there’s an incredible shot of her on the stairs which took my breath away!) and Ludovic looks brilliant. I love it, all of it!

The Ashmolean Museum is an awe-inspiring setting – you won’t find a room like this for your wedding reception anywhere else. The statues are an amazing talking point and create real atmosphere – you won’t need to hang bunting or add any decor of your own if you celebrate here! I love it!

Do you and your fiancé have different musical tastes – and maybe, different ideas for the music you’d like to have at your wedding? I’ve been to weddings this year where church music was the most important thing of all; where the soundtrack was reeeeally alternative; and one where everyone wandered off as the DJ came on. (Yikes!) So how do you get it right? How do you ensure you have that amazing party atmosphere as the sun sets, and all of your friends and family have a brilliant, fun night at your wedding?

I’m happy to be introducing you to Bands For Hire today. These guys list their acts by genre, so if you’d like a classical musician to play while you walk down the aisle; a swing band as your backdrop for afternoon drinks and then a full-on festival style party with guitar bands all evening – these guys can help.

One of the things I love about the wedding industry is how quickly things change. Fashions come and go SO fast. As a wedding blogger I love how our industry thrives; how we import new ideas and how new faces appear so often on social media. Every new wedding business is an inspiration to me. And it makes staying in the game hard. It makes winning, and staying at the top of the wedding industry, the most exciting challenge you can imagine.

Weddings is a fast-evolving, fashion-led industry

I have some very good friends who, like me, have been in the wedding industry for more than a decade  – and I’ve seen a complete transformation of wedding styling in that time.

We used to love the funniest things: satin ribbons; themed weddings; tidy bouquets; scroll invitations. It’s ridiculous but true that my calligraphy business started up before vintage was invented. (Or at least, before vintage became a ‘thing’ that had anything to do with weddings.)

Every now and then, in the colder months of the year I like to brighten up everyone’s day with crazy beautiful colourful flowers. So here… today’s Dorset wedding is pure joy for your screens and I hope you LOVE it!

I adore Pippa’s dress – she’s such a beautiful bride. Dick is fantastic – his character shines through in every image and makes the day a true favourite for me. There’s nothing like the spirit of summer to brighten a November day, right?

Kent wedding photographer Penny Young on the English Wedding Blog (13)

Penny Young is a Kent based photographer, documenting beautiful wedding stories all across the South East and sometimes further afield.

“Weddings are about capturing real and unique relationships and no two weddings are the same which is the thing that I love the most.

I’m always looking to capture real moments with real emotion in a beautiful and authentic way. Wedding photos should be a record of not only how a day looked but also how it felt for the couple.

This is wedding inspiration at its prettiest – a gorgeous wintry inspiration shoot combining  an exquisite contoured dress and a modern twist on the iconic beehive. The beautiful bouquet and buttonhole – by Charlotte from Moutan Flowers – is both textural and delicate. The bouquet continued gorgeous globe thistles, pretty pink cool water roses, the rich black dahlia, and snow berries for an added delicate pink and cream colouring.

Words & Images: Tasha at Ikonworks

Creating an editorial shoot for Wasing Park has been something I have wanted to do for a while, its gorgeous grounds, and diverse wedding buildings enable you to create something truly unique. My favourite space has to be the summerhouse: its charming mural of pale blue, almost oriental in style, creates the most perfect backdrop to a wedding.
