I love this place; Broadoaks is one of my favourite local wedding venues (how lucky am I to live so close to the Lakes?!) and the couple featured today are fabulous and gorgeous and romantic. This is one of those wedding films which captures the atmosphere of the day and will have you smiling along – with me – possibly with a little tear in your eye. LOVE this!

Time for a little Pinterest, I think… as today’s Lake District wedding is so full of beautiful, colourful, gorgeous details and flowers I hardly know where to begin. I adore this day: the venue is one I love (see my review from last year), the bride and groom are stunning, and oh, the flowers… just perfect.

Beautifully rustic wedding style at the Wild Boar with Hayley Baxter Photography on the English Wedding Blog (35)

The Wild Boar has its own very distinctive décor and did not need much help to create a rustic, vintage vibe. The Wild Boar is full of character with low ceiling beams and roaring log fires, so we managed to achieve the relaxed, intimate atmosphere that we wanted quite easily.”

About 1 week before the wedding I emailed every supplier who was attending the wedding to ensure they had the correct date and there were no problems etc. This relaxed me completely and prevented any last minute complications!”

Not everyone dreams of being a princess. I never have; and if I’m honest the classic bridal style isn’t for me. I love dresses which are different, creative, and which make a real impression. A dress has to have ‘wow’ as well as being beautiful. And in an ideal world, a dress has to have a story behind it. Enter the awesome Legend Bridal Designs along with an impressive cast of north west wedding suppliers for today’s alternative styled shoot…

I’m a little obsessed with Game of Thrones. I was excited to hear that the girls at Legend Bridal Designs have recently created custom wedding gowns for brides who love the series and found the inspiration for their day there. Legend are bespoke dressmakers with a very different kind of bridal shop – their dresses are out of this world. I was over the moon to see this magical, unique bridal shoot featuring their gorgeous designs. Images are by lovely Tiree Dawson Photography.

I’ve been busy recommending photographers I love to my friends who are getting married this summer – and everywhere I see couples are booking wedding photographers even for their weddings in 2017… I guess it’s that time of year. Which is perfect, because I like to think of myself as a matchmaker: I see a LOT of wedding photography and I want to help you hook up with amazing photographers for your wedding. Which brings me to lovely Liam Smith Photography

The decoration was all low key, we hung lanterns in the marquee along with wooden hearts but we wanted to keep the decoration to a minimum. Elvey Farm has its own florist, a wonderful lady called Lesley Masters. I gave Lesley some rough ideas and asked for everything to appear natural like it had just been picked from the garden and she came up with the beautiful creations.

“I was delighted with the photography from our wedding. Fiona managed to capture the day perfectly and really reflected the country feel we tried to create. The candid photos of family and friends laughing during the speeches were wonderful.

I remember being so excited when Louise Adby first got in touch in the summer with a beautiful Cold Harbour Barn wedding – it truly was such a wonderfully romantic English wedding and a perfect fit for our lovely blog! A few months later and I’m more than thrilled to be welcoming lovely Louise as an English Wedding Blog sponsor.

London and destination wedding photographer Louise Adby Photography-6

Louise’s photography combines the very best of contemporary fine art style with all the wonderful storytelling of reportage wedding photography. “I love the contrast between raw spontaneous moments set against beautiful composed portraits, but portraits that have feeling and a connection between the couple.

London and destination wedding photographer Louise Adby Photography-12

I spend most of the day documenting quietly and sensitively (until we are on the dance floor then I throw myself into the thick of the action) but when it comes to crafting beautiful fine art portraits I give gentle guidance with where and how to stand but keep in mind the personality of the couple so I don’t lose character with a forced pose.”

In the English Wedding Book I mentioned greenery and foliage as one of 2016’s major wedding trends – and the shoots I’m seeing on all the big international wedding blogs are saying the same thing… so I was thrilled when lovely Daniela from Ferri Photography submitted her images from a fabulously beautiful, artistic wedding styled shoot where the luscious leaves took centre stage!

The theme for the shoot is set around the story of a local, Italian, village girl who falls in love with an English boy. After what seems like a lifetime away from each other, today is finally the day they will get married.

In July 2015 I was selected to attended a Fine Art Wedding workshop called a Beautiful Way. The workshop took place at the stunning Almonry Barn in Somerset. Together with 12 other other photographers we spent the day exploring the fine art style of photography, making friends, laughing and eating some amazing food!”

“We weren’t planning a traditional white wedding so didn’t want the typical group photos”,  Robyn told me. It’s something I’d never thought of before: formal group shots are so laden with tradition… but really, is that how we even do photography these days? Perhaps there’s a better alternative for you as well, than the half hour (or more!) of ushers dashing around gathering up relatives to stand in a variety of lines?! (And you can read more about traditions and how to break old fashioned wedding rules in the FREE English Wedding Book, if you haven’t already read it.) But today we’re all about gorgeous couple Robyn & Matt…

This brought tears to my eyes – “When you know, you know. I would have married him in a binbag with no guests and been as proud to be his wife as I am now. Fiona said to me once that “love is as easy as putting socks on” and that is my advice: Marry someone who is easy to love.” ~ Robyn.

I’m so excited to introduce you to someone altogether lovely and super inspirational today:  London wedding photographer Fiona Kelly is joining the English Wedding Blog’s little team of sponsors from today. Fiona – welcome!

 Fiona Kelly London wedding photography  (16)I have so much to show you: Fiona sent me a gorgeous selection of images to introduce us all to her photography, and I just know you’ll love them to bits. They’re the kind of images which stop me in my tracks: for how beautiful they are, for the lump-in-your-throat kind of moments they capture, and for the stunningly magical locations Fiona just seems to have an instinct for discovering.

“I have a few things on my wedding wish list and am happy to work up something special in terms of a photography package for a wedding that matches my wish list.

If you are planning an outdoor wedding somewhere amazingly scenic and beautiful (in a forest, on a mountain top, on a beach, in a flower field, amongst the ruins of a castle, I think you get the idea) then get in touch. I would love to hear from you and help to create some gorgeous images of your wedding day.”

Roz & Tom are gorgeous. Their wedding – a perfect winter’s day – is full of special and very personal touches which make it as unique as it is lovely to look at. Roz made candles for every table (yes: made them!) and I love the scrabble place names they had too.

“I was very sentimental about my jewellery and wore pieces I had been given over the years by my mum, brother and girlfriends rather than buying anything new. I also wore my late grandmother’s diamond engagement ring which is just beautiful!”

When I asked Roz what she thought was the best thing about being married, she told me “Feeling more in love with the person you have chosen to spend the rest of your life with and receiving the first piece of post as Mr and Mrs, so exciting!”. I love the idea of sending a lovely handwritten letter to the new Mr & Mrs… what a wonderful little gift it would make!

So here’s an unusual one – a venue which caught my eye as much as it did my imagination. And you know what? I love wedding venues which are different, unique – especially when they’re not dedicated wedding venues.

I’m always asking why wedding venues can’t afford decent chairs: if every restaurant in the land manages to have chairs which don’t need polyester covers, how come our top venues still have dodgy business chairs we have to pay to hide?! It makes me want to hire a proper restaurant instead; somewhere that just looks awesome. Oh! And here’s one…

The first thing I noticed about Hannah was her smile: that beautiful, overjoyed, beaming smile – it’s how every bride should look on her wedding day. She’s stunning.

  • Do you have 5 minutes to read something really romantic? The story of @durhamroseuk  is wonderful: a prospective groom with an idea for the perfect engagement ring, who had to search far and wide and eventually design his own! After quite an adventure in the making, she said yes, they married... and the UK's leading bespoke engagement ring supplier was born! There's a little more to it, including the Dragons Den bit - but you can read all about that on the blog! For now, I'm in LOVE with this pendant Durham Rose created to match one of their bespoke rings.
