I should wear flowers in my hair more often – in fact I think the last time was 3 years ago because I still have a photo of me and my buttercup! Perhaps it should be my first resolution for 2017: more hair flowers! Who’s with me?! You will be when you see today’s super pretty shoot, which I love for its colours and the fact it features a few rather lovely friends of the blog who I’ve come to know well over the last year… this is wonderful!

Teaming up with local wedding suppliers makes this shoot really special – the images are by our friends at Boho Lane Photography and I’m happy to say we’re sharing a photo-film by Paul Kyte Photography on our Facebook page this morning too – do take a peek, it’s fab (and fascinating to see what goes on behind the scenes at a photoshoot like this).

Ahh… I can almost smell the sunshine from today’s sublime English wedding – looking at these images is the loveliest reminder of summer, and the details of the day are simply perfect. Stunning bride Sarah has written about her day – and I just love that it was so perfect, this family home is set to become one of England’s prettiest new wedding venues.

Inspiration for a beautiful garden wedding at Midway Manor with Louise Adby Photography (22)

“James and I got married at his parent’s house, Midway Manor, in Bradford-on-Avon and we would like to open up Midway Manor to other couples getting married as it is a splendid place.

We were blessed to be able to make use of James’ parent’s country home which has beautiful land with a lake and waterfall feature in the front of the house and a pretty manicured “secret” garden with an array of flower beds, kitchen gardens, peony patch (my favourite flower), walkways and pockets at the back of the house.

I was reading today – I can’t remember where – a piece of advice about styling your wedding, and not rushing into anything. The article recommended choosing your venue first and using its decor to inspire your day (something we’ve suggested before on the English Wedding Blog). As soon as I saw Kim and Kevin’s stunning wedding it brought all that advice back: and oh my, did they choose a venue to be inspired by!

There are so many beautiful touches to Kim and Kevin’s day. The bouquet is sublime (and lovely Jennifer Jane always gets that incredible shot! LOVE!) – the table flowers and florals all around the venue are perfect.

And then there’s our gorgeous bride and groom. Don’t they look stunning! The shot in the doorway at Clifton College is magical – it captures their characters and how head over heels in love they are!

Alex is a wedding florist, and as you’d expect her bouquet is a bit of a knockout. This beauty is unstructured, tumbling, full of delicious foliage and statement flowers… and the rest of the wedding is just as stunning!

I’m so proud of the overall image of the wedding but the flowers (from Wild For Flowers, Folkestone) completely lifted it. It changed from just being a village hall wedding to our really special day. Our venue was a village hall and we loved it. It was a blank canvas that we could have for a week before to decorate exactly how we wanted it to be.

We made all sorts for the wedding from backdrops to table arrangements, from pimms and lemonade stands to table plans, and all of it was incredibly enjoyable – some really fantastic memories.

I never want to be a dull blogger. I want to share something new every day – and more often, to share things you won’t expect. Images to surprise you; ideas to set you thinking along lines you’d never dreamed of before. Guys like Rox and Scott can inspire me to do just that… because the last thing they wanted was ‘ordinary’ anything at their wedding.

Rox and Scott didn’t want generic wedding photography, they wanted us to capture their and their guests’ true personalities naturally without direction or posing and we had an absolute ball along the way! The trust they gave us was wonderful and we felt truly privileged to capture their day and the people who made it so special.”

If I ever have a wedding, I hope I’ll be able to describe the day as Maud does hers: “A beautiful, colourful day filled with love and madness.” In my world, this is everything a wedding should be! And Maud looks amazing, she and Andy both do. I jumped at the chance to share their day with you – the images capture the spirit and excitement of the day in such a magical way!

Amazing wedding party inspiration from Deepdale Farm with Kazooieloki (2)

There are two things I really love about this wedding: it’s all about love, family, friends, and laughter and having fun; and the attention to detail and the care that went into styling everything is outstanding. The colours, the flowers, the dress (custom made for our beautiful bride – I LOVE it!) This would be my perfect wedding.

Our venue needed loads of decoration, which was all done by us a few days before! Lots of make do and mend, old pillow cases and candles. No supplier would have been able to get it as right as my mum and dad did. Loads of family and friends helped the night before!

DIY weddings don’t get much prettier than this… and beautiful bride Rosie just happened to marry her lovely husband at one of our favourite wedding venues, the fabulous Launcells Barton in Cornwall. Safe to say then, that today’s wedding is magical inside and out…

The flowers are divine – gorgeous colours, super bright and colourful throughout the day. I love Rosie’s flowers in her hair – aren’t they pretty? The cake is spectacular, the bouquet wonderfully trailing foliage and with statement blooms to create a real talking point. The crafts are so lovely too… I adore the pretty baubles on the tree, the forget-me-not favours and sweet place settings.

Rosie’s dress is stunning! I do love seeing brides in colours other than white, and the pattern on her full skirt is so so pretty. Bridesmaids wear the softest sage green; what’s not to fall head over heels in love with here?

Wedding bands come in all shapes and flavours: from string trios to full-on guitar bands. There are so many ways to choose a wedding band – locally, at a wedding show or online. Most will have a presence everywhere; yet few have made waves as astonishing as Jam Hot. I wanted to blow your mind with something special this lovely Sunday morning… prepare to be amazed! Jam Hot are a wedding band specialising in extravagant, luxury celebrations – and boy, do they set the bar high!

Words: Paul from Jam Hot

I’d like to take a minute to introduce Jam Hot! We’re a luxury, contemporary show band, who travel the world entertaining guests with our exciting, high energy shows.

We play huge hits by Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris, Beyoncé, Montell Jordan and many more. The band has a hugely impressive 4-piece horn section, tight driving rhythm section and unbelievable guitar solos that wow audiences and pack dance floors.

2017 will be a wonderfully creative year for weddings – I’m seeing influences from the art world wherever I look, and the artists and designers in the UK wedding industry are reaching new levels of amazingness every single day. I love this – shot with true artistic flair, By Harriet launches her beautiful collection of luxe handcrafted accessories in blinding style!

The Cornucopia shoot styling was inspired by a combination of two different artistic influences, the postors of Mucha and the paintings of the PreRaphaelites. The romantic, delicate and dreamy nature of the designs by Harriet seemed to be crying out to be presented in this way, so we rifled through my books (I’ve always been a bit of an art history boffin) to look at the shapes, flowers colours and styles, and see how they could be presented for modern brides to complete their look.

Today’s real wedding is one of those timeless celebrations which I know I can blog now, and brides in 2025 will still be turning to it for inspiration. It’s sheer luxe and so beautiful – Rebecca is breathtaking, her husband Dominic looks fabulous, and the venue is out of this world! Wow.

Luxury wedding at Greenwich Painted Hall with Claire MacIntyre for Bardot Weddings (33)

The venue was magnificent and required minimal decoration. Our florist decorated both the day and evening rooms. The evening venue was the Queen Mary Undercroft at the Naval College which had pillars in it. Our florist put fairy lights and ivory up around the pillars and we had two large pedestal flower sprays which were at the entrance.

I’m a writer. I write for the English Wedding Blog, and when I’m not here I’m sat with a dip pen and a pot of ink, in a flurry of paper chaos, writing modern calligraphy. I love to create something beautiful, unique and enchanting. I also love to see people learn to write modern calligraphy – the joy of learning is so special to see.

Over the past few years I’ve taught dozens of brides-to-be, craft lovers, designers and wedding pros to write in beautiful modern calligraphy. I teach my workshops in Manchester, and I’m often asked if I hold workshops in London, Birmingham, Glasgow and more…

Sometime before Christmas, I’ll start teaching modern calligraphy worldwide

I’m launching an online calligraphy workshop: a set of video tutorials and accompanying worksheets which give you all the information you’ll need to learn modern lettering in the comfort of your own home.

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re ready for something really lovely… today’s Lincolnshire wedding is so so beautiful. I love Rebecca’s stunning dress (she’s just sooo beautiful!) and George’s beard – between the two of them this is just a perfect wedding for the blog and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

Batemans Brewery wedding blog from Lincolnshire with 166 Photography (23)

“We met while studying fine art at uni so it seemed a bit of a no-brainer to make our own stationery. George made the drawings for our invitations, order of service and table plan, while I made the layouts and put them together. It was pretty time consuming but we spend a lot of time making stuff anyway, and it was great because we got to include lots of little details and a lot of lavender!”

Batemans Brewery wedding blog from Lincolnshire with 166 Photography (16)

The flowers were peach and cream roses with rosemary, freesia and lavender. Our local florist, P and N Pitchers in Alford, Lincolnshire, provided the bouquet, bridesmaids flowers and buttonholes for us. We decorated the church with potted lavender plants and the table decorations were provided by the venue, with masses of cream roses, hessian and lace.
