Let the celebrations of love continue! Today’s wedding is just beautiful: Rebecca and David’s July wedding was intimate and elegant, with wonderful summer flowers and simple styling touches. It’s a wonderful reminder of summer days and makes me smile just to see the bright florals and the love between this gorgeous pair! Images are by super lovely English Wedding member, Tara from Pudding & Plum Photography. The venue is Dodmoor House, Daventry.

How did you choose your photographer?

We met Tara at a wedding fayre in Leicester and liked her straight away. Both her and her pictures were so lively and colourful which was exactly what we wanted for our wedding.

We’re brining you serious wedding escapism this morning – away from the surreal and scary world out there. But before all that, I know many of you are so worried about your wedding plans for the summer. My advice for all of you is to focus on the truly important: not your wedding, not your marriage even, but your love. No matter what, your love will get you through this. And for advice, reassurance, and all the practicalities of wedding planning with coronavirus a very real threat on the horizon, read Annabel’s superb advice features on Love My Dress. She’s got your back, and with a great team of wedding experts on board, all the advice you could ask for is there.

I absolutely love this bridesmaid’s denim jacket! How cute though?!! It’s all part of the personalised embroidery service from luxury boutique Bridal Indulgence in Hampshire. Those swirls – it’s actual calligraphy on a denim jacket, for your wedding and beyond. GENIUS!

Brides have been customising little pieces of wedding attire for decades… a little embroidery on a keepsake hanky might have been a little ‘out there’ in the 1920s but now you can personalise pretty much anything you’ll wear on your wedding day! I love the idea of having your names in embroidery tucked away somewhere at the side of your wedding veil, or in the lining of a bridal jacket … and those denims just totally have my heart!

When Noemi (Thyme Lane Photography) emailed me with this earthily beautiful elopement, she had my heart in a few words: “I just don’t think couples need to spend extreme amounts of money and stress a lot about their day, just have a few pretty details and love each other.”

Yes. That. Exactly that. We share every kind of wedding inspiration on blogs, from luxury weddings to intimate celebrations and elopements (and I’m on the lookout for a micro wedding!) but this – this is what makes me personally smile more than anything in the world. A personal celebration of love, a handful of STUNNING images, and some simple, ethical, wonderful details. It’s all you need. I will hand over to lovely Noemi to tell you more!

Where are you up to with your wedding stationery? Will you be writing your own place names, table plan or signage on the day? A few little calligraphy tips will really help you on your way – and I have six modern calligraphy workshops planned for the year ahead. It’s what I do when I’m not writing a wedding blog: I have little pots of ink on my desk, and pens with nibs, and I spend my days writing beautiful wedding invitations and stationery. There’s something really lovely about modern calligraphy. Seeing the pen flow across the page as I write is just magical. Coming to a calligraphy workshop is a lovely experience – often brides-to-be come with mums, best friends and future husbands or wives – it’s a chance to spend some real quality time together in the run up to the big day as well. I teach every workshop myself, and they’re hosted in different locations around the north west of England. Every workshop is aimed at beginners – I’ll start by showing you how to hold a calligraphy pen and you’ll learn how to write beautiful alphabets and quotes in no time!
