I’ve been waiting to share this beautiful wedding inspiration for months! It’s perfect for winter, fabulously rich and colourful with the most wonderful fabrics, sparkle and geometric detail! This is the second part of an EPIC bridal story – we featured the first part of this editorial photoshoot from some of Cheshire’s most sought-after wedding suppliers back in October.

Lovely wedding photographer Zehra Jagani – Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2018’s Asian Wedding Awards – and the amazingly talented Sadauf from The Wedding Fairy teamed up to create this incredible editorial at Delamere Manor.

Together they created all of these different bridal looks in grey and pink, then green and grey, and finally in uber luxurious burgundy and gold tones.

The floral design is a work of art – beginning the day with soft pink roses, pampas grass and gypsophila with delicate anemones and elegant tulips, then the most wonderful array of dark red roses, coral tulips, orchids, lilies and clematis to create a spectacular backdrop and display for the focal area of the room.

Jenny and Ben’s August wedding is instantly a favourite for me – they’re the loveliest, sweetest couple and their day just rocks my wedding bloggy WORLD!! There are some wonderful ideas I just know you’ll love – aside from the hundreds of pom poms, there’s a mobile gin factory on a VW camper van with jars of spices and copper pots to make your very own wedding gin right there on the day – genius. There are sunflowers and pinwheels in a rainbow of colours, along with fairy lights everywhere, and fabulous vintage style tea length dresses, and GLORIOUS florals – it’s just everything. Jenny looks stunning in her Brighton Belle dress. Ben’s relaxed look gets a huge YES from me: suits are not obligatory for weddings, guys! He looks fab – and more than anything, the happiness between these two is infectious. They describe their day as “a colourful rustic, vintage, craft collaboration with a gin twist!”

Well, hello there weekend!!! It’s wonderful to be here! – and lovelies, before you head out Christmas shopping, do indulge in a little weddingness with me? I have the prettiest day to share with you, including some of the loveliest evening portraits of our gorgeous couple Leigh & Adam. The pair were married at The Plough at Leigh, and chose English Wedding member Terence Joseph as their wedding photographer. 

“We made and sourced a lot of decorations ourselves, but the barn already looked beautiful with hops and fairy lights. We loved making some of our decorations as we got friends and family onboard and was fun to do altogether! We made name places, jars with hessian and signs – who knew we had so many creative friends! My favourite thing to make was our ‘Find your name to find your place board’ – we put Polaroids of all guests on the board with string and pegs so people could take them home with them.

Grab a cup of something cosy and spiced, and join me to gaze happily at today’s breathtaking editorial photoshoot. I’ve fallen head over heels for the warm, deep colours and the homely, hygge atmosphere of these beautiful images by Lucy Baker Photography. The creative team were led by lovely Lauren Alexander Weddings, who found a charming little run down outbuilding at Holbrook Manor and transformed it with a beautiful dessert and snack table. The team were so creative, upcycling a low hanging branch with handmade bespoke glass, playing with the sunset, the light and turning it into a perfect spot for photos.

I LOVE the little details: the cake (by Adorabella Cake Design) and stationery really make the look work so beautifully, tying all the elements together with colours, organic styling and soft, touchable design (I’m talking about Hélène from Smitten With Ink‘s wonderful choice of handmade papers!) – and the florals from  Rose and May Floral Design are spectacularly autumnal and truly enchanting. So be inspired by those hidden corners around YOUR wedding venue. Use the space for outdoor dining, use candles, fairy lights and textures to give your guests something to explore, and create another element to your day. Work with a stylist, source props and or hire and create something utterly bespoke to you for your day.

English Wedding hit 10 years of wedding inspiration back in November. I don’t know where the time has gone – it feels like only yesterday this whole crazy snowball of a wedding blog began, and I love our little part of the internet as fiercely as ever! In 10 years though, I’ve changed. I’ve teetered around the edge of becoming wholly vegan for a few years (I’m still failing on chocolate) and I’m more and more conscious of the climate crisis with every passing week. So I’ve been thinking this morning about how I can really bring my little wedding blog more in line with my personal values.

The beauty of most wedding blogs is their independence. Wedding bloggers are real, live, human people with hearts and souls – and we’re absolutely free to share our heartfelt opinions with the world. There’s no company line to toe, no restrictions on what we can say, and we choose the brands and little businesses we can shout about on our little bloggy pages. So let’s start there:

This week is flying by! Can you believe there are only… 13 days left before Christmas?! Eeeek!! (We have a lovely schedule of features to share over Christmas by the way – I’m super excited to hit ‘publish’ again almost EVERY day through the Christmas break!) But first – a wonderfully elegant, graceful and enchanting wedding from Glemham Hall, with stunning bride Aimee and her handsome husband James! The happy pair were married in October, and describe their day as “Rustic, romantic, Autumnal, Scottish, elegant, with a grand staircase. Perfect.” That’s pretty much the loveliest wedding-in-a-nutshell description I’ve ever read! Images are by our wonderful friend Ayshea Goldberg Photography, and I hope you enjoy today’s real wedding as much as I do. Have a fabulous day!

“Our wedding had a rustic with blush, burgundy and ivory colour theme. The overall look was autumnal, but with a Scottish flair.

Hello there, lovely! I am so excited to be sharing this gorgeous wedding with you this morning. The spring sunshine is guaranteed to warm your day – and Katherine is absolutely stunning in Maggie Sottero’s ‘Deirdre’ wedding dress. Katherine and Terran describe their day as “The best, most fun, day of our lives so far!” – and it really does look like the PERFECT wedding from their photos. The happy pair celebrated at Katherine’s parent’s farm near Wareham, Dorset – their reception was held in a beautiful sail cloth tent in a field. All images are by lovely Emma Gates Photography, who gets a glowing review from the bride and groom in their English Wedding interview below!

Happy Monday, lovelies! Are you looking for a little escape from all the pre-Christmas busy-ness out there? Because I have the perfect thing: a wonderfully relaxed and romantic, flower- and plant-filled wedding at The Great House, Sonning – and our gorgeous newlyweds Will & Karis who told me all about their best day ever! The images are glorious – they are by our friend and English Wedding member Damion Mower Photography, and the capture the beauty and spirit of the day so very, very well. As you might know, we ask all of our English Wedding couples to give an honest review of their favourite wedding suppliers, and Karis and Will’s review for Damion is just brilliant! I’ve included it at the top of the post for you today. All other suppliers are listed at the end of the feature, with some great tips from the happy couple on who to book for YOUR Berkshire wedding!

This year on English Wedding we’ve been lucky enough to explore some more of England’s finest wedding venues in person, by kind invitation of the owners. I’ve most recently stayed at The Wordsworth Hotel and Martin Dabek (a brilliant Bristol wedding photographer and member of English Wedding) was invited to review Berwick Lodge at the beginning of the year. This time, we were asked to review the Orchardleigh Estate, which is just 10 miles from Bath – and lucky Martin was ideally situated to go and find out all about this amazing wedding venue.

Martin’s words about Orchardleigh have changed a few of my preconceptions about wedding venues. Perhaps the landscape is changing, perhaps Orchardleigh is just a shining example of progress in wedding venue management – but the way this place works is different – and I love that. It’s not owned by a faceless or international hotel chain. It’s not owned by the aristocracy, and it wasn’t inherited by rich landowners. Orchardleigh has a pretty inspiring story, and I’m so glad we can share it with you today!

Good morning! I have been waiting for MONTHS to share this stunning wedding with you… lovely Lisa & Mark were married in December – and the Christmas tree just seemed perfect to share with you right now. Who has their tree up? Ours is on its way down from the loft tonight and I’m excited to get the baubles out later! It won’t compare to this beauty though…

This is Christmas with class and fabulous style: a black tie do with silver and white, eucalyptus and plenty of sparkle. Lisa is spectacular in a Stewart Parvin gown and Jimmy Choos; Mark’s Hugo Boss suit is uber smart and sleek for a sophisticated winter wedding at Caswell House.

I met Amanda and Hutch at The National Wedding Show in London and instantly loved their style and vision. It helped that they were both so warm and friendly and instantly understood the vibe we were after for the big day.

As those beautifully frosty mornings return, I have a truly magical bridal editorial to share with you today. Inspired by Frozen, with an elegant and wonderfully enchanting colour palette of ice blue and white, this shoot from a talented bunch of wedding suppliers at Cavokay’s Old Milking Parlour will inspire winter weddings and festive tables alike! The images were sent in by lovely Natalie Stevenson Photography, who tells us a little about the inspiration for the shoot below.

Christmas is such a magical time; it was important to translate that magic through the medium of this styled shoot. If you love fairytales like me, Disney is the epitome of fairytale romance. I knew right away that Disney’s ‘Frozen’ would serve as the perfect source of inspiration for a romantic and wintery shoot.

The showstopper of the shoot was undeniably the peacock-feather grown by designer Eliza Jane Howell, fit for a real-life snow queen.
