We never have a Wednesday lull on the English Wedding Blog. In fact we like to leap out of bed grinning, ridiculously excited for the day, and share the most amazing thing we can find on the whole internet. So, welcome. This is special and bound to brighten your entire week… Charlotte and Alex’s wedding is breathtakingly beautiful.

“I totally fell in love with my dress! The main dress was Charlie Brear and I knew as soon as I saw it that I would be hard pushed to find anything that suited me better. I loved going to the showroom as CB does lots of great separates so you can mix and match and get something really personal to you. I tried on lots of combinations but in the end bought the dress and then had the lace top made by the talented ladies at Forget-me-not on the Isle of Wight.

Before the wedding season is anywhere near, there’s a wonderfully exciting few months stationers like me will know as wedding stationery season. It’s a time when couples are counting in weeks to their summer weddings… and invitation designers are in their element, planning and designing the loveliest new bits and pieces for YOU to send out to your wedding guests. And it’s now – if you’re getting married in the summer, it’s time to start sending out those invites!

The style of Chell and Ben’s wedding is wonderful: this is a themed wedding done beautifully, and it’s a joy to scroll through their images! When this wonderfully sparkly, gold, glamorous wedding landed in my inbox I knew you’d adore every detail…

Oh my god I was obsessed with my wedding dress! We knew the theme we wanted almost straight away; Great Gatsby Glamour. I went online to search for 1920s style dresses and instantly fell in love with the Jenny Packham Eden dress in Platinum. It had 1920’s decadence but with a bridal twist. Effortlessly stylish and beautiful without being over the top. The detailing of all the sequins and beading made it stand out above all other dresses. I am still totally in love with it now and am always looking for 1920s events I can use as an excuse to wear it again. I’m even contemplating bringing it on our honeymoon to the Maldives so I can get some more beautiful photographs in it!

Happy Sunday lovelies! I hope you’re looking forward to a relaxing day – but before you head out anywhere, I have one of the loveliest summer weddings to inspire you today! Jess & Jon’s wedding took place at a pretty Surrey church with a reception at the beautiful Ewshot Hall in Farnham. It was an elegant but relaxed country house wedding with a beautiful colour palette of soft muted greys, whites and pinks.

Gill Pike was my florist. She is amazing. I gave her my themes and colours and let her work her magic with very little input. The flower arch looked stunning.

Gemma from Harper’s Events was in charge of decorating the venue. All of the guests commented on how elegant it looked, we loved the big illuminating letters.
We also had Victoria from Extremely Lovely Weddings decorate the venue. She was so creative and had beautiful fake trees which made such a difference to the look of the room. Victoria also provided extra bits such as a DIY photobooth , basket of flip flops and a basket of blankets for outside. We would highly recommend these suppliers to anyone getting married.

“Wedding Photography is my passion. I also really love purple and want it to be the Pantone colour of the year soon!

My style is unobtrusive reportage for most of the day and I pride myself on nipping through the formal group photos quickly and efficiently, leaving the rest of your wedding to unfold naturally.

Are you sold on the bridal separates trend? I have to admit, I love the idea of separates so much – just for how beautiful they look! Today though, I wanted to show you bridal separates from another perspective – with Charlotte Balbier‘s gorgeous new imagery really showcasing the versatility of beautiful tops and skirts. So often we hear readers say, “I just wish I could wear my dress again!” – and the beauty of separates is, you can. Over and over… and you’ll look fabulous, I promise!

We adore Charlotte’s beautiful sheer lace and silver embellished Nova topper matched with the beautiful Wilder skirt… and jeans. So beautiful.

Charlotte Balbier’s Separates collection perfectly fuses the boundaries of bridal and fashion. The luxe lace toppers can be worn long after your wedding day – pair them with jeans for a chic everyday outfit.

You can even mix and match on your wedding day, investing in individual pieces to be worn and treasured long after your wedding day.

Individual, fun and full of colour and personality - a real wedding at Nyland Manor (31)

The colourful, happy vibe of Lucy and Steve’s wedding is just how I’d imagine the perfect wedding to be. Perfection isn’t about colour palettes or a theme, it’s not even about the day running to schedule or being stress free: the perfect wedding is one where everyone is smiling from beginning to end, where the dancefloor is full, where the best memories are unplanned, unexpected and all the more amazing for it. Today’s gorgeous bride Lucy and super handsome groom Steve show us exactly how it’s done…

We made up the flowers ourselves! This was one of my favourite parts of the wedding prep! Our venue didn’t need much decoration but the marquee did! We did this all ourselves, with help from work colleagues, friends and family. We made almost everything! Table centres, the favours, extra bits that went around the venue! I loved doing all of this.

Danielle and Andy’s wedding is the prettiest floral celebration I’ve seen – with fabulous peonies and the prettiest pink details, it’s wonderful inspiration for a classic summer celebration. I adore Danielle’s hair – her loose plait with tiny flowers is so, so beautiful – I hope you love this wedding as much as I do!

We decided on peony and roses in pink shades as we loved the romantic look and feel of them. We wanted the flowers to compliment and fit in with the venue, so had the floristry done through Narborough Hall Gardens, who grew and arranged all our flowers. The flowers were part of what made the day for us as they were so beautiful, with candelabra and teapot displays, amazing bouquets and a beautiful willow bower and flowers lining the aisle in shepherd crook jars.

Baby, it’s cold outside… but you know, I’m still loving snuggly jumpers and sneaky hot chocolates and evening cuddles… winter has a spirit all of its own and I’m in no hurry to see the end of these chilly, beautiful days. But I’m biased: I’ve been completely and utterly won over by today’s gorgeous winter wedding inspiration. The word wonderland was made for the beauty you’re about to see… a combination of a luxe winter wonderland with a hint of silver, fluffy cotton candy, and geode crystals.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you have something lovely planned for this evening… and to keep your hearts full of love and happiness I have a wonderfully romantic and beautiful day to share with you this afternoon. I LOVE this wedding – gorgeous couple Louise and Tom are absolutely perfect for the English Wedding Blog with all their fabulous flowers and such stunning portraits by Kathryn Edwards.

“I bought most of the stuff myself… mainly from Hobbycraft, Etsy or Not on the High Street. I was introduced to Elinor Softley who has her own business in decorating weddings and she was an absolute life saver! She completely understood the theme and ideas I had for the day and couldn’t do enough for us. I don’t know what we would have done without her as she dressed the venue by herself on the Friday and helped to take it down on the Sunday! She is amazing. Her company is fairly new, but she is so talented! It’s called Soft Touch Events and you can hire lots of cool things from Elinor…I think I hired pretty much her whole warehouse!

When lovely Jessy Jones got in touch to show me Tom and Natalie’s day I was so excited – honestly, their day is just so pretty and perfect to share with you here. The bride and groom are gorgeous: the flower crown is super sweet and I LOVE the daisies – I hope you will too! Oh, and did I mention the awesome golden dinosaurs? 😉

“We didn’t really have a theme – we wanted the wedding to reflect us both. Flowers were a big part of our wedding, particularly daisies and roses, with zombies, dinosaurs and mermaids thrown in!

Throughout the wedding planning I was most certain about what style of bouquet I wanted and I knew I needed to get the right florist to get the look I wanted. When I met Sharon at a wedding fair I knew she got what I wanted. We had several meetings – I changed my mind several times but we got there in the end. Out of everything I was so excited to see what my flowers would look like – I was not disappointed: the flowers, the flower crown… everything was perfect. Sharon was absolutely lovely as well. I would recommend her to anyone – she really goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. www.sharonsflowerhouse.co.uk
