Today, you lucky and lovely people, we’re excited to share an elegant wedding inspiration shoot. We love the style and story behind the images, which are beautifully illuminating and inspired by a colour palette of olive greens, chocolate browns, rich reds, rose golds and champagne creams. Oh, and isn’t this the most amazing bouquet since, like, ever?

Today tells the story of Roberto and Angelina, childhood sweethearts from the historical town of St Ives. They spent their teenage years having picnics by the river, taking long walks and watching the sun set over the Cambridgeshire countryside. After leaving the family home to follow his dream of traveling the world, Roberto returned five years later with a desperate need to see Angelina again. Even across the oceans his heart never left hers.  Now back, he vowed that if he ever left again, he would take her with him as his wife.

Our wedding was a mixture of a village fete and a 1930s edwardian carnival. It sort of evolved once I had picked the dress and the invites had been designed. The majority of suppliers were recommendations from Facebook, Pinterest and trawling through the internet.

We did everything ourselves with the help of friends. The village hall came with lovely old wooden chairs and tressel tables. We put these in the marquee and then added our detail. Our wedding invites were made into place mats and guests were given colouring pencils to show their artistic talents.

I’m a music lover – I live for amazing concerts in intimate venues, singing my heart out and dancing all night long. Music is important – I’d even say for me it would be the number 1 important thing at our wedding. I’d love to take our wedding to a live concert rather than host an evening do ourselves… I wanted to share something with you today which will help even the fussiest music lovers (like me!) choose the perfect wedding entertainment.

This wedding is so pretty – I LOVE the bouquet and all the flowers, the stationery and the little handwritten signs for Sarah & Simon’s outdoor games. They’re a gorgeous couple, the images are lovely – it’s perfect! And you’ll find tons of inspiration here… DIY was a major part of today’s fabulous English wedding. Enjoy!

They had a relaxed outdoor wedding with lots of personal touches – both Simon and Sarah are ecologists and work in the great outdoors, so it had to be an outdoor nature themed wedding! “It was very important to use local suppliers. Most of them we found through word of mouth and recommendations from others.”

Hello, beautiful! In a few short weeks I will be heading into my favourite UK city for a little Christmas shopping… and to teach my last modern calligraphy workshop of the year. 2016 has been amazing, I’ve loved every workshop and I’d love you to join me to make this last one of the year the best workshop ever!

Online booking here

We have 15 places for crafty brides-to-be, Mums, best girls and guys to come along and learn the art of beautiful modern lettering. It’s not as hard as you’d think… but at the same time it’s one of those things where everyone needs just a little guidance to get started.

I’ll be teaching you everything about modern calligraphy: how to hold your pen, how to make gorgeous swirls and loops, and how to progress to fun practice sessions with quotes and song lyrics and more.

Would you like to come?

I barely know where to begin – the images from Grace and Reid’s wedding are just fabulous and the details are out of this world. Nerves were put to bed with a first look on the moors – and these are some of my favourite images of the day. (Below you will find 43 of my “favourite images of the day”. When York Place Studios are involved, I have a LOT of favourites, every time!)

Watch out for the superbly different wedding car, the huge trailing bouquet, the fabulous stationery and test tube floral chandelier. Be inspired by the table styling, Grace’s stunning dress, the s’mores station and heathers. This is one amazing wedding – you’re going to love everything.

Happy Tuesday everyone! The last few days have been a whirlwind – our modern calligraphy workshop on Friday was brilliant, and I’ve been tidying up and reconnecting with the blog over the last couple of days. Meeting our lovely students on Friday made me think about all of the wonderful people I’ve met over the last few years, especially those who’ve played a part in making the English Wedding Blog a success. I wanted to take a little time today for some matchmaking, and to say thank you at the same time.

Without these amazing people, the English Wedding Blog just wouldn’t be around. They’re my friends; sponsors and supporters of the blog – and each one has been handpicked to play an active part on the blog because I’m a big fan of what they do. I love independent businesses; I’m a fan of wedding suppliers who are truly passionate and dedicated in their work. I will be thrilled if you take a little time this morning to discover some of this lovely lot – maybe even get in touch, see if they’re available on your day? You won’t regret it!Claire

Today’s is a fabulously fun, colourful and creative wedding on a budget – Charlotte and Gareth were married at Fison Barn and wanted to keep their day informal and pretty without breaking the bank! Their ideas are lovely; Charlotte’s DIY tips and her English Wedding Interview are a great read. I love Charlotte’s honesty too: they tried making invitations but in the end, as it can be so time-consuming to do, they bought their invites online and focused on the craft projects they’d really enjoy. And the ones where Gareth spent a few days covered in glue… oops!

A real wedding at Earth's Trust and Fison Barn with Carol Elizabeth Photography (9)

Like with everything in this wedding, our flowers had to be colourful and fun. I used  Richard Mathews, who offered a good deal and were friendly, I gave them sort of free range explaining my theme was colourful and fun.  He asked me to find examples of flowers I liked then he worked out something from those. I was so happy with them as he’d managed to put in fresh sweet pea flowers, a flower I had really wanted.

Lydia and Mark’s day is one of beautiful, traditional luxury. They celebrated at home and chose a romantic, feminine theme for their day. Lydia is stunning in her haute couture dress by Antonia Pugh-Thomas; the flowers are fabulous and the day is so full of gorgeous, creative touches to be inspired by.

We loved sourcing the decorations and styling the reception. We lined the entrance to the marquee with three tiered terracotta pots which we had pained in soft grey and filled with lavender and seasonal plants, we put them together in April and anxiously watched them grow! We also made the place setting board and really enjoyed decorating the marquee together the day before – it really added to the excitement to see everything arriving and putting all our plans together. We used a large hamper, painted it white, and filled it with various sized flip-flops for partying in the evening, needless to say they were all snapped up as soon as the dancing started- we wish we’d bought twice as many!

Today’s real wedding is stunning… I do love a good tree. Gorgeous bride Claire and her husband Miles were married in Henley, with the River Thames as the backdrop for their day. The ceremony venue is pretty, welcoming and light. And they enjoyed a boat trip with a proper English pub in the background – pretty much everything about the wedding is perfect for a blog feature!

Images are by Kevin Belson, who told me Greenlands, Henley Business School, is a spectacular wedding venue with its picturesque setting on the banks of the River Thames. The staff were amazing and the beautiful sunny day made it even better, with guests enjoying drinks and canapes on the riverbank by the dock while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive back on the boat.

Cycling themed wedding Henley London with Kevin Belson Photography (19)

“The main theme of our wedding was to make it as personalised as possible to us. We love cycling, especially through mountain ranges and a lot of our friends share this with us too. So we had a tandem there and the theme ran through all the stationery too.

Your wedding can have luxe styling, romantic florals and pretty details even with a more industrial, city backdrop. There’s something I really love about contrasting an urban setting with feminine decor, and today’s styled shoot is simply fabulous.

This styled shoot was inspired by the growing trend in urban feel weddings in London but with brides wanting to maintain that luxurious and stylish feel. Watercolour touches added softness to the industrial surroundings of Drake and Morgan at Kings Cross through the use of silk linens, stunning stationery and a beautifully water colour painted cake.

The use of herbs again brought a softer feel to the venue but also bought the outside in, something that can be important to brides if the venue they choose does not have its own green outdoor space.

An English country garden is a place of tranquility, beauty and soft, playful colour. Its charm has inspired thousands of weddings dating back many, many years – and for me the wonder of an English garden wedding theme will never fade. Sarah and Nick’s wedding uses the very best of country garden styling and adds personal, traditional touches to the theme: tea and china, Pimms, fairy cakes, croquet and bunting. It’s so perfect!
