Naturally simple and beautiful #weddinginspo with Eva Tarnok Photography on the English Wedding Blog (48)

You are as beautiful as you’ll ever be.

When you’re a grandma or a crazy great auntie you’ll look back on old pictures and know, see and appreciate just how beautiful you look today. Fact.

But if today you can’t see that, it’s time to take a deep breath and refocus. Because you’ve lost something precious which really, you should own.

We all have our little hangups – tummies, thighs, noses – imperfections we’re super conscious of sometimes.

But when you’re young they shouldn’t matter. They’re a part of you – and you ARE beautiful.

You’re also in love, and loved. By someone who sees all of those little imperfections and loves you all the more for them.

He / she sees you the same way your future self will.

Step into his shoes for a moment right now and try to view yourself from that same perspective: you’re a young, beautiful woman in love.

Jen and Joe had such a beautiful, summery wedding at Loseley Park with pretty florals and the most amazing backless lace dress. The look of their day was very English country wedding, and worked beautifully to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Family and friends decorated the venue, and Jen’s mum made all the macaroons herself – they look fab.

Images are by lovely Verity Quirk Photography, who gets a great review from our gorgeous bride and groom. Verity told me Jenny and Joe are huge G&T fans: “Their friends and family say they go together just as well at Gin & Tonic does, so at the end of their ceremony they both made a G&T together and shared it while leaving the ceremony! I LOVED that.

“Jenny being a huge feminist made it very clear from the beginning she wasn’t going to let just the men do the talking so just before entering the reception barn Jenny made a fab speech to all the guests on the lawn whist sipping some bubbles. Her bridemaids also made speeches before the men! It was a gorgeous day full of friends, family and stunning flowers and backdrops and a day I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.”

I like to think the role of wedding blogs is to mix things up a little. While there are always key themes for any wedding season, it’s nice to throw something wonderfully, excitingly different into the mix from time to time. So when lovely Helen from Pudding Bridge showed me this glorious shoot with dusky blues and peach blooms I simply had to share it with you! Images are by James Green Photographer – a full supplier list is at the end of the feature.

Helen – who you might well know as country house wedding planner Pudding Bridge – worked in partnership with the wonderfully talented Caroline Bowater of Foxy Buds, a florist based in Bradford on Avon.

“We wanted to show couples how you can use a darker, non traditional colour scheme for a summer wedding. We used a dusky blue as the base and mixed in stunning whites and peach blooms to really make the blue stand out.

So you’re marrying your best human friend, but you really don’t want to leave your other best friend out of the celebrations. As an animal lover, I totally get it: dogs are a huge part of our lives and if they’ll enjoy the attention I think they’re the sweetest addition to a wedding day! Your photos will be adorable, you can dress them up a little… and I couldn’t resist these super cute pics from Oobaloos Photography at The Barn At Upcote for the blog today!

“Celebrating with closest friends and family is one of the most important aspects for most at their wedding, however one of your closest family members can be left behind.

“There are now many dog walkers and dog sitters that will bring our furry friends to join the celebrations for a short while.

With a little (or a lot of) training they could be the ring bearer and escort your bridesmaids down the aisle or if their temperament isn’t suitable just come to share a few minutes of your special day.

From the beautiful florals and Kelly’s gorgeous Stella York gown, to the statement table plan and the rainbow at the end of a perfect day, I am totally in love with today’s wedding feature. Kelly is stunning; David looks fantastic and they just make the loveliest couple ever, don’t you think?

Cain Manor wedding inspo for May with Murray Clarke Photography (2)

“Cain Manor has lots of wooden beams and lovely wooden floors so was ideal for the theme we were looking for. Our florist www.fsflowers.co.uk did an amazing job of decorating the venue with gorgeous displays and subtle trails. I couldn’t have achieved the look without her. She even stayed until after the ceremony to go back into the room and move the flowers around for the wedding breakfast. My flowers were old English style roses mixed with some wild flowers. The theme was peach and pale pinks with cream and they really did wow! Exactly what I pictured and more and they smelt heavenly!

The sunlight in these wedding images is just dreamy – when wedding photographers talk about golden hour you just know you’ve found the right one, don’t you? And Annabel and Sam’s wedding portraits are so beautiful I just had to start with their evening pics! What a gorgeous couple… and the loveliest set of images you can imagine.

We chose Love in Focus after recommendation from a friend and looking at his website.

We couldn’t be happier with our photos! Sandy was brilliant on the day. He was unobtrusive and hidden in the background to get all the natural photos we wanted but assertive on the group shots to ensure everyone was in place. The pictures really capture the essence of the day and his attention to detail was spot on.

When we saw our wedding photos for the first time we were thrilled, excited to relive the day again through the photos and a lovely recap of the moments.

Katherine’s interview is ace – don’t miss it at the end of the blog post if you’re getting married this year. I love her words of wisdom: “Stay true to both your styles and choose the things that you like . Everyone says ‘it will always come together ‘ when you are at your most stressed times with planning and they are so right. After the day, you’ll have no idea why you were so worried.”

English Wedding Directory members Kazooieloki were recommended by the wedding coordinator at Cleatham Hall.

“From the moment we met Richard and Christine we knew they were the photographers for us. They were so warm, friendly and honest. Our engagement shoot- although nerve wracking – produced such stunning images and we are overjoyed with our wedding images.

Today’s styled shoot is gorgeous and adorable and so very, very inspiring! I adore the feel of a relaxed but super glamorous 1930s house party – it’s simply fabulous and with Mabel the Boston Terrier modelling as ‘best man’ for the day, the cute factor totally wins my heart!

“All of the elements for this 30’s style shoot fell into place quite naturally once we got the okay from the venue. Sprivers Mansion in Kent is a characterful and elegant Georgian house and both myself and stylist/florist Gwenda Jeffs had worked there before on weddings. So, we were thrilled to get the go ahead as we wanted the images to be full of glamour and Sprivers is the perfect setting for a vintage themed shoot with its ornate fireplaces and crystal chandeliers.

Happy Saturday, you beautiful people! Whatever your plans today, I hope they’re full of love and hugs – this week has been heartbreaking and it really brings home the need to enjoy every moment we’re lucky enough to be living happily and in love. Publicly on the blog I’m still sharing beautiful things as an escape from the everyday and as a focus on the future – and so today I have something extraordinarily wonderful to show you.

Lovely Emma Jane got in touch to share this stunning walled garden wedding inspo with us all. I adore the styling – the hand lettering, the little golden pears.

The olive branches and minimalist, pretty cake are divine. But what wins this shoot for me is the absolutely gorgeous bride and groom and their super cute four legged friend…

The shoot was based at Sugnall Walled Garden in Staffordshire. The concept was to portray an outdoor, elegant yet rustic feel aptly named “An Outdoor Romance.”
