Steph and Sean’s wedding is family focused, all about the party – it breaks any stuffy old rules about weddings… and it’s fabulous. The pretty summer flowers are gorgeous, the bride and groom look fantastic – this is real rock ‘n’ roll attitude with a modern twist and I LOVE it!

“The day forged a wonderful balance of fierce rock n’ roll attitude alongside a cool vintage playfulness that brought out some amazing and lively personalities to say the least! It was an absolute pleasure to capture them and their gorgeous (and hilarious) little family and my word what a fun day we had immersing ourselves in all of the action!” ~ York Place Studios

The romance of late summer sunshine in today’s wedding inspiration shoot has my heart. So many times I ask myself how I’d get married, and today is one of those days where I’m convinced I’d elope and say “I do” in France. The dreamiest images by amazing UK & destination photographer Victoria JK Lamburn have whisked me away to Paris today and as much as I try and concentrate on other work, my heart and mind are at le Tour Eiffel – and I’m in love!

I supplied the calligraphy for this shoot! Vicky asked me to create something beautiful and bespoke to slip in her suitcase, and the moody hues and informal lettering were such a pleasure to write! You can find out more about my calligraphy at By Moon & Tide.

I LOVE all the colour in Anna and John’s Hampshire wedding – it’s wonderful. Orchids and paper cranes in vibrant colours make this a real treat for my eyes – and this gorgeous couple put so much into decorating their venue, my screen looks like summer! Don’t miss their table plan – it truly is a work of art 🙂

John and I both have eclectic taste, we were both really influenced by travel especially to tropical lands. The bright and colourful flowers and decorations of these tropical destinations helped us to choose our colour scheme. I also have a love of orchids, they are so beautiful and elegant, origami cranes just felt right.

Our flowers were everything and more than we could have imagined! Lovely Lynne (http://www.fioribylynne.co.uk/) was amazing, her wealth of knowledge and ideas led to the creation of one of my favourite aspects of our day. The bright, colourful exotic flowers encompassed the theme of the wedding.

Josie and Simon’s wedding is just fabulous: the colour they created in every aspect of their day is just wonderful for a January wedding. Peacock feathers look stunning in a British flower bouquet; herbs as favours and place settings are perfect, and I adore Josie’s gorgeously vibrant wedding dress – you’ll love this!

Chance and Google led us to Carol. We knew that we would be getting married in an iconic venue, that needed someone who knew it to photograph it well. We searched for online portfolios of the Bodleian and found Carol’s. We liked the style of photography and we liked the range of couples in her photos – not all couples are 20-something instagram supermodels! Then we met her and she put us at ease, and we felt comfortable with her taking care of our special day.

The palest greys are stealing my heart this year – so many of you are incorporating beautiful, barely-there greys into your colour palettes for spring and summer weddings.

Grey is beautifully versatile and works with every flower you can imagine. This means the bouquet you’ll hold will look stunning with grey fabrics or accessories; table flowers will shine against delicate linens and silks; calligraphy will pop in gold or dove grey inks on the palest grey stationery. Today’s shoot by lovely Rachel Rose Photography has the most stunning ideas for this delicious colour alongside my favourite bridal separates by the amazing designer Ailsa Munro.

Rachel wanted to put together a photoshoot around her favourite colour – grey, and to give it a fresh and modern feel. The super simple bridal separates with just a hint of sweet bridal detailing set the theme for the whole day, from the simple detail shots with the rustic baguette to the beautifully elegant stationery.

I love today’s shoot – all the greenery is stunning, it’s wonderfully styled and absolutely beautiful. Botanicals is such a beautiful trend, and lush green leaves are key to styling this year – today we show how to incorporate a whole lot of fabulous textures into your botanicals inspired wedding.

The ideas here are wonderful – from a fabulous team of wedding suppliers whose vision comes to life at the fabulous Highcliffe Castle, in the gorgeous Wintergarden room with its glorious windows and light. The stunning bouquet of ferns and anemones is amazing; the metallics of the tablescape and cake are the perfect contrast with all the green… I hope you love it – please do Pin away to your heart’s content!

I’m so happy and excited to be welcoming another brilliant wedding photographer to my little team of handpicked sponsors on the blog today. Last summer I featured a stunning Somerset wedding sent in by lovely Martin Dabek Photography – the images still take my breath away today! It was the first of many weddings I’m looking forward to sharing on the English Wedding Blog, with Martin’s help, over the coming months.

“Hello, I’m Martin, a wedding photographer based in Somerset.

I’ve been capturing incredible memories for my couples since 2009, so far it’s been an amazing journey.

The first wedding I photographed was in Mexico for some friends of mine and since then I have photographed over 250 weddings in the UK and abroad.

With your venue secured and wedding date firmly in the diary, it’s now time to start thinking about the music! Along with photographers and the wedding dress, live music is often considered one of the most important aspects of the day, from the unforgettable moment as the bride enters the room, to the first dance and final singalong of the night. Whilst there’s always the option of an mp3 player, nothing quite compares to the spine tingling sensation of a string quartet or harpist to really get the emotion in full flow.

If this is your first time taking on wedding planner duties then you’ll no doubt have a long list of queries on everything from schedules and logistics to band requirements and more. Having worked in the wedding music industry for the best part of 15 years, there are certain questions that come up time and time again and so to set you off on the right foot, we’ve put together this simple infographic focusing on budgets, timings and musician requirements.

I LOVE this wedding!! It’s wintry but not too Christmassy (which means I can happily publish it in spring!) and the bride and groom are gorgeous. I especially love Tom’s tweed suit and cap – and Katherine’s hair is sooooo beautiful. The little mice holding flowers are the icing on the cake… just wonderful.

Our wedding flowers by Hollyhocks Florist were beautful dark purple Calla Lilies, amnesia roses and gyp – looked amazing! It was Christmas so we had beautiful decorations for free! A floor to ceiling high Christmas tree, and miniature ones in the windows. We went for hessian bows on all the chairs. Our invitations, order of service and confetti were all homemade. They took a long time, but they were cheap and added some extra love to the day!

Timeless wedding style comes from your heart. There’s so much pressure to ‘have’ things for your wedding – and yet, all you really need are the simple things: the two of you, and the things you love. Today’s shoot is beautiful for its simplicity and showcases the loveliest bridal gowns from Julia Tasker‘s Lake District boutique.

Flowers are white; calligraphy graces the walls; the beautiful bride wears the loveliest sparkle and flowers in her hair. Luxury fabrics, elegant lines and gentle sunlight make today’s inspiration simply wonderful.

Hey lovelies! I’d like to share two things which make me happy with you today! The first is simple: sunflowers. Gorgeous, yellow petals full of summer colour – and they’re fabulous in buttonholes and bouquets, don’t you think? (DIY brides – you can plant sunflower seeds from March onwards!) Oh, and the second thing which makes me happy? A story of an affordable and still beautiful wedding. Joe and Gemma hired a village hall, made their own ‘wedding punch’ and used it as lovely centrepieces, hung bunting from the beams and celebrated in style without breaking the bank. Gemma’s dress is breathtaking… Their wedding was submitted by lovely Paul from Stylish Wedding Photography who told me a little about the day.

“Joe & Gemma are friends of ours and had the most beautiful fun wedding last September. They very much did it on the cheap – but spent money on the things that were important to them. It rained all day long, but it was beautiful and shows what can be done on a budget.”

You have just gotten engaged!! Congratulations! Now the fun really begins!

Have you been together for years or just a short while?

Suddenly EVERYBODY is going to have an opinion on how to plan your wedding. They cannot help themselves.

I am guilty of it too! The minute I know someone has gotten engaged, I am asking, “have you got a theme, do you know what you want, do you want contacts? I have GREAT contacts, leave it with me, oh I’m sooooo excited for you!”

I forget that I am already the 4th person that day to ask that. (sorry to all my friends I have done this to btw)

SO! How do you combat this?! From DAY ONE set your ground rules.

If you want certain people to help plan certain things, ask them. They will feel amazing just to be included. You tell them exactly what you want and get them to help source/make/etc.
