I thought we’d end the bank holiday weekend with something insanely beautiful. One peek at today’s wedding and you will be hooked!! (Oh – I have to quickly remind all of you lovely wedding suppliers that today is the last day to join the English Wedding Directory for just £30 – click here to find out how!) And now for our incredible wedding… bride Esha is stunning!!! I adore both of her wedding dresses (the red evening dress is a knockout!), her hair and beautiful henna and the bouquet is breathtaking! – and Rehan’s whole look is wonderful (the detailing and embroidery on his jacket is fabulous. More grooms should look this good!!) It’s a fantastic day with amazing details – there is so much here to inspire you, I just can’t stop looking through all of the beautiful pictures.

“When it came to planning the wedding, I spent a lot of time Googling suppliers and getting inspiration from Pinterest. I had a clear vision of what I wanted and so set about creating boards which helped me to visualise and share the look with suppliers. I have lots of creatives in my family, and so I pulled them in to help make personalised decorations with the theme in mind. I cannot thank them enough for their help!

This weekend has me full of thoughts of spring, newness, life and nature – I’m kind of a closet pagan and so Ostara is my thing at this time of year. I’d love to wish you all a happy weekend of reflection, family, chocolate and flowers! Oh, and if you have a wedding business don’t forget you have today and tomorrow to sign up to be a member of the English Wedding Directory for just £30 this weekend!

But first… today’s beautiful bride Charlotte and Adam were married at the beautiful local church in Burleydam, Whitchurch and then had a stunning marquee reception. I love all the gold styling, and their tablescapes are unreal… plus, Charlotte’s bouquet is unique and so, so pretty.

How is your Easter weekend going? It’s been so lovely taking a few days to relax and enjoy our beach. Don’t forget, I’m inviting all wedding suppliers to apply to join the English Wedding Directory for just £30 this weekend – I’d love to hear from you! Now, if I had to use just one word to describe this wedding, it would be happiness. Everything just radiates joy to me… the fabulous smiles of our beautiful bride and groom Nicola and Joe, the cheery, bright barn venue and the special little touches. It’s all just perfect, and so wonderfully summery too!

“The venue was so stunning we wanted to enhance it rather than transform it. We filled the garden with paper flowers we’d made in our colour scheme, and hung bunting and fairy lights in the barn.

I handmade all the bunting – I think I got to about 100 metres worth by the end! Me and my girlfriends also made about 400 paper tulips to scatter round the venue, we hated the sight of them by the end but wine and snacks got us through and they looked amazing on the day.

A sweet, simple wedding inspo feature for your Easter weekend… grab yourself a handful of mini eggs and meet the Jackalope… isn’t this adorable?!! I love the pretty yellow flowers, the baskets of mini eggs (that’s my place setting, that one right there with the eggs… yep!) and I love how characterful this all looks – it’s the wonderful centrepiece who has stolen my heart today! Don’t forget, if you’re a wedding supplier you can apply to join the English Wedding Directory for just £30 this weekend – Happy Easter everyone!

Have you thought about signage for your wedding day – those helpful little details showing your guests where everything is, when stuff will happen, even where they’re sitting? It’s often the little costs which add up on your day, and taking care of these yourselves can save money. Making them pretty is also a lot of fun if you’re a crafty person, and learning how to write beautiful modern lettering is a skill you’ll keep and use for life!

I’m holding two calligraphy workshops in May and June, both in Manchester’s uber cool Northern Quarter. There are still places available for both and I’d love to invite you along. They’re on Friday afternoons, starting at one o’clock and finishing around half past three. The price is £59 and every attendee gets to keep their calligraphy ‘kit’ to take home and play with.

A few weeks ago I shared the most charming luxe barn wedding inspiration from Cornwall with you – the wonderful, cosy lighting and sumptuous bouquet were so popular on our Instagram and I just can’t help coming back to this shoot over and over again. So I’m thrilled to be able to share something gorgeous with you today – a highlights film by lovely Baxter & Ted to transport you lovely people to Cornwall for another look. Those breathtaking views…

As the bluebells are almost out on the hillsides here in the Lakes, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this gorgeous day with you. Tristan and Kayleigh had a beautiful woodland wedding in springtime, surrounded by bluebells and incorporating them into their theme. The bride and groom are just naturally beautiful – theirs could be my perfect wedding, I think. I just love the flowers, wooden decor and raffia which bring their natural spring wedding look together.

“The whole event was homemade with help from family. Stand out out pices were the bar, cake stand and the arch the ceremony was under. We also created a coloring book from some old photos for the children along with some sweets and disposable cameras.”

Alex and Duncan’s summer wedding is super sweet and pretty with daisy bouquets (I’m so in love with daisies this year!) and simple, elegant styling touches. The gorgeous couple married at Winters Barns in Canterbury and chose my lovely friend and sponsor Penny Young to photograph their day.

“My florist was Chantelle Gadd who works at Contemporary Flowers, Kent. I wanted something extremely simple yet beautiful so went for gypsophila and white roses. Chantelle collected the hundreds of glass jars I had saved and wrapped in twine, and then brought them filled to the venue and arranged them for me. She was amazing!

We spent a long time looking online for a photographer – it’s so difficult because there are just so many photographers out there! We wanted to find a style of photography that really suited us us a couple and knew that posed, formal photographs were definitely not our thing. All of Penny and Jim’s photographs online were beautiful in their own right and had appeared to capture moments without being noticed which we liked.

You know when you look at a rainbow, and it’s so amazing it gets in your eyes and stays there all day? No? You’re about to, with today’s wonderfully colourful English wedding. The hot air balloon is only one of so many visual delights (and hey, if you’re training to be a balloon pilot!!!… it’s got to be done!) The styling and decor make this wedding so fabulously fun, unique and memorable – it has to be one of my favourite weddings on the blog this year. Gorgeous Kristy and Ollie shared lots of info about their day, so do read their fantastic interview after the images!

“We made our own invitations, created some of the venue styling pieces such as bunting, paper cranes, we put together some glass vials with wildflower seeds for wedding favours too. I was lucky to have some help from friends and family with all these.

What an amazing wedding this is – I’m so excited to share this wonderful day with you! The dried flowers are fabulous as far as details go, and I love Gemma & Christian to bits – their gorgeous smiles make this an unmissable day, it’s perfect for the blog!

Everything about Gemma & Christians wedding was super – from the traditional church wedding, to the dried floral headpieces, to the rustic DIY Barn with hay bales as walls, to the afternoon tea wedding breakfast!

Mine and my bridesmaids hair pieces were real dried vintage flowers, handmade, and into a headband for myself and three matching combs for my bridesmaids – the supplier was Folky Dokey. Very unique and again fitted the whole theme perfectly, carrrying the vintage style throughout. My shoes were my favourite shoe brand – Irregular Choice. They were lacy and slightly vintage to match my theme. I loved them. One of my bridesmaids bought me my blue garter and I carried a butterfly brooch on my bouquet from a close family friend who had recently passed away before the wedding, which was a lovely touch and felt very special for me to have close by.

Lizzie and Roddy are such a cute couple, don’t you think? Their day is graceful as can be, from the bouquet to the ballet at their evening reception… I absolutely love this and know you will too. Images are by the amazing Russian photographers Frant & Fifa.

“My wedding dress was the only wedding dress that I really liked the second I saw it on the hanger. A lot of the dresses I tried before I tried on to see what it will look like and to keep an open mind as I was giving various dresses a chance. It was love at first sight with my Katya Katya Rosa Dress and I was just so excited to try it on. I was also absolutely sure that that dress is one of a kind and I have never seen a similar dress in other bridal shops or magazines.
