Today’s woodland wedding shoot is wonderful!!! I LOVE the ribbon tipi and the bouquet – and the dreamy background and styling touches are just incredible! The venue is Oakwood Weddings, a brand new wedding venue nestled within ancient woodland near Ashford. All images are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Helen England Photography, who is based in Kent.

The theme was enchanted woodland wonderland with a touch of bohemian glamour designed by Claire from Blue Daisies Florist who supplied all the beautiful flowers, and Becky from Your Beautiful Day.

As a photographer it’s always an amazing experience to have the opportunity to work with other supplies on a collaborative styled shoot, so when I was approached by Claire about the idea she had for the shoot I jumped at the chance to be involved!

Oakwood Weddings was the perfect setting, nestled in miles of woodland with a carpet full of beautiful bluebells. I was super excited to be shooting at a venue where no weddings have even taken place yet!

Handmade is a lifestyle choice Amelia Barnes made a long time ago. The organiser of The Creative Boutique Wedding Fair studied as a fine artist, and has tried her hand at many crafts while working as an art teacher. When Amelia got married she really came to appreciate how tricky it can be to find stylish, handmade wedding pieces – and so she went out of her way to track down and source amazing suppliers to find unique wedding ideas which were truly reflective of her.

I spent months and months searching online for a vintage wedding dress and I just couldn’t find anything that would fit me or my style…. All dresses I looked at in shops were made in China and had a six month leadtime. Being fairly headstrong, I objected to bossy women telling me what I should have for my wedding day!

While planning her wedding Amelia realised most of what was on offer was part of a package deal, or mass produced for the wedding market. It was the exact opposite of what she was looking for: high quality suppliers with a focus on true craftsmanship.

I’ve always said a wedding doesn’t have to be anything more than the two of you saying ‘I do’. Today’s feature celebrates the most romantic of weddings with Petra and Thomas on a quiet Jersey beach. I adore everything about their day: they’re both stunning; the bouquet is gorgeous – and our bride and groom just keep smiling the whole day long. Oh, and then they run into the sea together… and it just looks perfect!

Thomas and Petra hired lovely Sandy from Tern Events to help plan and style their day. Sandy was a huge help, sourcing suppliers she knows and trusts to create a perfectly memorable occasion for the bride and groom. Petra’s bouquet is divine – Clara from Wilde Thyme mixed soft, pretty colours and flowers which were mainly home grown on Jersey.

Sandy even arranged for Emma from Quints of Jersey to make up a lovely booklet and menu as a keepsake of the day – as it’s not always easy finding the right stationery for just the two of you to celebrate with!

Here’s something wonderful for all of you autumn brides and grooms – a wedding full of warm styling touches and golden sunshine. I adore the portraits of the happy couple under the turning leaves; Hannah is so beautiful and radiant in the most delicate lace detailed wedding dress, and the candles and cake table are just perfect for the season. (Three wedding cakes – chocolate brownie, cheese and pork pie!!! Love this!)

When I arrived in the morning it looked like we were in for a chilly and foggy autum day, there were clouds and fog and it had rained the day before so I didn’t have high hopes for the weather that day. Fortunately the Orangery at De Vere Tortworth Court is essentially a huge green house so even on the darkest of days there is plenty of light.

I love this time of year: we’re moving slowly from featuring the best weddings of the summer to sharing our favourite autumn and winter weddings… and as the nights draw closer and we all remember our love for cosy jumpers, it’s really lovely to see winter weddings back on the blog!

I absolutely love Sarah and Alex’s Chester Town Hall wedding. They moved on to Oddfellows Chester for the reception – a fantastic venue set in the heart of Chester. It is a quirky hotel, in a grade II listed Georgian building.

The wedding cake is so striking – I love their brave choice of black icing and gold sugar flowers – so exquisite, different and beautiful.  The sophisticated black and gold colour scheme throughout the day makes their wedding so unique – I love it.

So today is the day I’ve decided to wear a red dress when I get married. I’ll have to un-blue my hair a little, but it will be so worth it. I just love how incredible Liz looks in this red dress. She is absolutely captivating, beautiful – everything a bride should be and then some. And the colour flows through the entire day with pretty florals and accents of red dotted around the decor and styling for this beautiful Pencoed House wedding. Definitely one of my favourite weddings of the year, and I hope you love it as much as I do!

The flowers were amazing and created with such love. My mum did them and she spent months gathering small vases from charity shops to build up colour collections. Some flowers were from a florist, but others we picked together.

Today’s inspiration feature is wonderfully stripped back, individual and super beautiful – from a group of small independent wedding suppliers at Lainston House.

“We wanted to involve smaller independent suppliers, Karolina Grycko who made the cakes, White Designs BridalHampshire Slate, and Byootefel. Having the opportunity for them to work alongside established talent like Brides of WinchesterLittle Lillies and Hayley Savage Photography, who was our photographer for the day, was a great collaboration opportunity for everyone involved.

We choose Lainston House as the venue for the photo shoot, as it is the most beautiful backdrop and has such a variety of places to shoot. The woods in the ground were perfect for our “ceremony” and really captured the essence of the shoot; rustic, simple and about two people dedicating their lives to each other.

 


We asked Owen at Little Lillies for bouquets that were individual, wild and free. Giving him a brief colour palette to work with he came up with two absolutely stunning creations for our brides. Him working organically on location was a joy to witness!

I adore today’s shoot, which really celebrates the end of summer… the details and styling are beautiful and I love the setting: a gorgeous ‘working’ greenhouse full of life and growing things. Perfect for the beginning of your new life together, don’t you think?

Every little detail works so beautifully in this shoot: from the abundant florals to the gorgeous hair accessories by one of my fave designers, lovely Clare at Vintage Button Bridal Designs. The stationery is elegant and timeless, the cake sweet as can be. It all makes me feel as though summer is a neverending adventure!

I wanted to create a styled shoot with a real English Summer feel that was natural, fresh and delicate. From watercolour stationery to blue & white china (my mums!) to soft flowing bridal hair and the most delicate handmade hair accessories.

There will be plenty of times during the planning stages of your wedding where things get a little bit tricky and you feel like throwing in the towel. You may think that you are the only one experiencing this, but trust us when we say that most couples struggle with exactly the same dilemmas!

Your wedding entertainment in particular is such an important part of your day and your wedding experience as a whole. Here are 5 of the most common wedding entertainment dilemmas that we deal with most often – and exactly how to solve them.

1. Band or DJ?

Probably the most common quandary you’ll face is this age old bone of contention. A good DJ will know how to read a crowd and will be armed with the perfect tracks to keep the dance floor alive. They can often be more cost effective than a live band but can also be less engaging. If you want to hear all your favourite tracks on the night then a DJ is a great choice as they are extremely accommodating to your tastes!

I love the way these dresses combine the simplest of lines with a touch of sass and modern, geometric patterns in the side panels and sleeves. They’re exquisite – truly different from any other dresses I see. The lingerie… just so, so beautifully feminine and delicate. Otaduy, you’ve won our hearts!
