Wivenhoe House in Essex is a beautiful contradiction of two worlds: historic grandeur and sleek contemporary lines. For wedding guest accommodation it looks stunning; for celebrating your day with loved ones its modern garden room provides chic and elegant styling while the historic house has old English character – ideal for romantic wedding photography.

Our lovely friend and Essex wedding photographer Ayshea Goldberg spent a beautiful day at Wivenhoe photographing this stunning wedding editorial to share with us.

The contemporary garden room inspired the modern styling of Luca’s Cakes wedding cake – a showstopper if ever I saw one! – while the beautiful gowns, blousy florals and romantic colour palette are timeless and ultra feminine.

Today’s wedding is just stunning – I especially adore the vibrant floral arrangements, and the bride and groom are gorgeous!! Ventnor Botanic Garden is a revelation…what a beautiful location with all those tropical plants… if I was on the Isle of Wight I’d be making a beeline for the place to find out more!

Erika’s dress is fabulously different and she looks amazing – while Justin is equally gorgeous and beaming with happiness (I wish I could hear his speech – the photos don’t do it justice!) So grab a cuppa and find a comfy chair, enjoy this lovely pair’s fabulous wedding pics, and have the most wonderful Friday everyone!!

We went to Ventnor botanical garden wedding fair and loved her style and found Holly really friendly and approachable. We booked her then and there.

We really couldn’t have asked for better photos!!! We love all of them. Holly has captured the day so perfectly and no awkward poses, showing family and friends our photos, we have been told many times how amazing the photos are!!!

The boutique I like to think of as my ‘local’ is Julia Tasker‘s stunning designer wedding dress shop in beautiful Windermere. Julia is a stockist and passionate advocate for Sassi Holford wedding dresses, and through her I have become just as much of a fan. Sassi Holford’s collections always take my breath away, and 2019’s Enchanted Collection is no exception. With Sassi’s signature silhouettes and modern luxury fabrics, this latest launch from one of my absolute favourite designers is as enchanting as it is Enchanted.

Sassi Holford's 2019 wedding dresses on the English Wedding Blog (10)

Sassi Holford’s captivating 2019 Enchanted Collection is inspired by nature and romance and focuses on texture and light.

Designed to reflect the many facets of the Sassi Holford bride, the collection remains true to classic Sassi Holford tradition – celebrating the female form and enhancing the bride’s unique individuality.

Bellini Jazz vintage wedding band with Entertainment Nation
FEATURED

A guest article by Steven at Entertainment Nation

If you’re planning on filling your wedding day with vintage details or you’ve got a passion for music from days gone by, then you’ll love this selection of amazing bands for vintage weddings.

While we’ve combined them all under the vintage umbrella, the vintage wedding band scene is actually thriving with diversity. There are bands out there specialising in every nostalgic niche you can imagine: 1920s speakeasy swing, postmodern pop, Rat Pack crooning, 50s and 60s rock n roll and rockabilly, Latin jazz and more.

Whichever decade inspires your devotion, vintage-themed wedding bands are dedicated to evoking the sights and sounds of their specialist era. Dressed in authentic attire, performing on beautiful period instruments and giving spot-on renditions of retro tunes, vintage-styled wedding bands are the perfect way to bring your vintage wedding theme together.

This all sounds great, but what about if your guests don’t know any 1920s music? There’s no need to fear. Many vintage bands for weddings incorporate modern pop, rock and soul songs into their repertoire, giving them a vintage twist to make songs you’ve heard a thousand times before sound fresh and original again.

If you’re looking to incorporate bright, vibrant colours into your wedding styling and need a theme to tie it all together, peacocks are the perfect inspiration. Wedding trends come and go, but peacock styling ideas are revisited and reinvented every season – this is one of my absolute favourites using fabulously colourful florals, coloured table decorations and glitter art for a whole new dimension of wedding make up art! Lovely Sarah Wayte shared her images with us, and Karen Luxford, the talented planner who coordinated this editorial photoshoot, tells us a little more. It all takes place at Moor Hall wedding venue, and there’s a full list of the brilliant Essex wedding suppliers involved at the end of the blog post!

“Given the fact that the model, Grace, and I have both recently overcome strokes (at a very young age, I may add!), I had the idea to incorporate the Stroke Society colour of purple with vibrant bursts of teals, blues and greens to give it life and energy. The peacock idea naturally developed from this colour palette which, in turn, led to the idea of drama, reflected in the make up and the use of the motorcycle!

If any of you lovelies have the Monday blues, we’re about to help whisk them away with some gorgeous real wedding inspo. Sherelle and Matt are the loveliest couple, glowing with happiness on their wedding day, which has everything from gorgeous styling touches to a fabulous setting and stunning portraits. I first saw their pics when our lovely friend Miriam from English Wedding Directory members The Artisan Wedding House got in touch – and I fell in love with every bit of this wedding! I just know you will too.

“Our venue recommended Miriam from Artisan to help decorate and we are forever grateful. Miriam was more than helpful throughout my wedding planning and even reassured me that everything would be just how I wanted it on the day. I believe Stanton is a blank canvas that can be as unique as the couple getting married there. I would highly recommend Artisan and the Aladdin’s cave of deco Miriam has to offer!

Marks Hall wedding styling in rustic peach, favours by Gilded Fern and photo by Olivia Knight (31)

This is a first!! How adorable is the little deer in this wedding inspo shoot? He’s a muntjac, and he lives at Marks Hall Estate in Essex, a beautiful location for weddings and wildlife alike, with heritage woodlands and ancient landscapes. I think his appearance in today’s blog post is a sign of approval of the gentle rusticness and natural styling touches from a lovely team of creative wedding folks who curated this photoshoot!

Our wonderful friend and English Wedding Directory member Gwenda from The Gilded Fern has kindly shared this shoot with us today. The gorgeous little favour bags are hers – I think they’re beautiful, don’t you? See more at www.gildedfern.co.uk

The inspiration behind the look is beautiful rustic styling and a peach colour palette, using paler tones and accent colours. The delicate green hellebores in the floral arrangements by lovely Miss Fleur Floral make this a perfect look for a spring wedding, while the dress (from Amara Bridal Studio) with its beautifully boho, almost geometric lace pattern, is divine!

Happy Friday folks! Ah… how on earth is it the end of the week already?! We’ve had the most amazing week of wedding inspiration on the blog, and I have so much planned to share with you over the weekend and next week too! But first – I like to share something really beautiful every Friday: as work is winding down we can all afford a little longer for lunch, right? So today we’re sharing Alexandra and Hugo’s marquee wedding with tons of handmade touches (beautiful bride Alexandra bought and arranged ALL the flowers, as well as making the stationery!) and gorgeous styling.

“I arranged the bouquets, head garlands, button holes and marquee flowers along with friends and family helping with the church and flower arch. My bouquet was peonies – my absolute favourite with some eucalyptus. The bridesmaids had bouquets made up of lizzianthus and gypsophillia and the marquee flowers were roses and gypsophillia with the flower arch being a mix of all flowers used. When hiring a marquee you then have to do all decoration yourself so the days before the wedding no waking minute was wasted turning it into our dream venue! Plenty of flowers and bunting was used to achieve this. We had a traditional marquee with poles which we wrapped ivy around.

So you’ve planned your colour palette, your centrepieces, your napkins and chair decorations for the wedding reception. There’s a sign at the entrance and a table plan so guests can find their places… the one thing missing is your place name cards. You really want to give your guests something personal, but you’re at the end of your wedding budget and you just can’t afford to splash out any more! – I have the solution.

These sweet calligraphy place names from By Moon & Tide Calligraphy are all you need to welcome your guests as they sit for the wedding reception. Prices start from 50p per tag – so if you’re inviting 80 guests you’ll only pay £40 for the simplest style…

By Moon & Tide has 34 place name card options in its Etsy shop, so you can choose from a range of gorgeous colours (off-white, pink, rustic kraft and navy blue are our faves) and stunning inks from black through to metallic gold. Best sellers include the navy cards with gold lettering, a huge hit for 2018 brides and grooms.

Let’s relax into Wednesday lunchtime with a beautiful English wedding, shall we? Hattie and Max tied the knot at Helmingham Hall in Suffolk on a beautiful July day. Helmingham itself is a breathtaking venue – and one we’ve never featured on the blog before today! It’s a magnificent Tudor hall with an actual moat, in the grounds of a 400 acre deer park – what more could you possibly want?

It’s the end of term… summer holidays, and around this time of year I still look forward to 6 fabulous weeks of playing in the sunshine! Oh, also – wedding season!!! Most of you will be getting married in the summertime, so now’s the time to go explore your venues, see which flowers are in bloom, take a picnic and dream of your best day ever – which will be here before you know it! And if you just happen to be in Devon, and you just happen to be looking for a brilliant Devon wedding photographer… then I would like to introduce you to someone I think is pretty damn amazing.
