Did you see our 15 wonderfully unique and affordable wedding invitations feature last month? I love writing posts like these: I love being able to share independent designers’ collections with you and I see myself as a bit of a matchmaker.

Aimee Willow Designs unique illustrated wedding stationery (7)

I totally fell in love with Aimee Willow Designs‘ Instagram themed wedding invitation and I was thrilled when Aimee said I could show you more of her work. She’s a true talent: an illustrator and graphic designer by trade, Aimee started to specialise in wedding stationery while planning her own wedding. Her style ranges from inky floral bohemian to unique passport and polaroid quirkiness. I love how she combines modern handwriting fonts with quirky floral graphics to create bright and breezy invitation styles. Her country garden invitation is so sweet and perfect… I think this is my favourite but it’s soooo hard to choose from so much pretty!

In her lovely studio based in Essex Aimee loves creating a variety of wedding suite styles to fit in with any vision, whether it be pre-made or totally bespoke. She studied Graphic Design and fine art at Cambridge while starting her design business.

I’m not sure what caught my eye and stole my heart first… the fabulous yellow accents, or Jen’s dream dress, or maybe the spirit of this beautiful barn wedding caught so wonderfully on camera. It matters little: whatever you love best, it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll be blown over by today’s incredible wedding. Allow me to introduce stunning bride Jen and her gorgeous groom Chris!

Real wedding in Surrey on the English Wedding Blog with Murray Clarke Photography (63)

I love working at Bury Court Barn as it’s so pretty with its stunning grounds and well kept gardens. The barn itself is very impressive with great light coming through the windows. It offers so many opportunities for photographers so I can’t wait to shoot there again soon. Jen and Chris are the friendliest people you could meet and an absolute joy to work with. I really enjoyed capturing their wedding as there was always so much energy in the room and it was clear that both they and their guests were having such a great time.” ~ Murray Clarke Photography

It seems sooo long since we published a sneak peek from this wedding in the English Wedding Book at the beginning of this year (do you have your free copy yet?) but when these divine wedding pics landed in my inbox it felt like yesterday. Vanessa and Will are amazing: their farming wedding is one of the loveliest I’ve ever featured and I know you’ll love everything about their day.

We were at home when we saw the final pictures and we viewed them together. They are amazing and really capture our day. The detail and moments that Rob and Sarah captured were just truly magical, and it is so lovely that we have such a special record of our day, including piecing together bits that we had no idea had even happened!”

Emma and Fraser’s wedding has timeless grace and a lightness of spirit – the romance of today’s feature is simply wonderful. The details are subtle, elegant and sophisticated, taking inspiration from days gone by with effortless charm. And our bride and groom are gorgeous a million times over in their wedding finery… think bespoke gowns and Scottish groomswear, family heirlooms and the loveliest touches to make a wedding to remember forever.

The flowers are divine: with roses and cornflowers taking centre stage, thistles and wildflowers combined to create the loveliest of palettes. I love a mixed bouquet – this is where floral designers really come into their own. Celeste French has an instinct for amazing arrangements for weddings and styled the flowers so beautifully for Emma & Fraser’s day.

Fraser and Emma’s love shines from their images. From the very beginning of their day to the sparklers after dusk, their photos tell a story of the most romantic day you could dream of. Emma’s dress is captivating in its beauty – just look at this…

These flowers make me think of the seaside… the colours are magical, they’re light and dreamy… and perfect for a summer wedding. The loveliest thing about the bouquet is that it’s one you can make at home with quality silk flowers and our step by step tutorial by lovely Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye.

Where to find quality silk flowers

Artificial flowers come in all shapes and sizes, and the quality varies hugely: garden centres and home stores sell the cheapest they can get. The only way to source really lovely silk blooms is online, and Natasha recommends Afloral.com whose website is testament to the pride they take in sourcing only the very best. Do take a look at Afloral online.

Make your own blue, coral and white bridal bouquet

You will need:-

artificial flowers and foliages of your choice, wire cutters, satin ribbon, floral twine, scissors and pearl pins

Step 1:.

A beautiful tipi wedding in Devon with Freckle Photography (13)

I’m head over heels in love with Josie and Gareth’s countryside wedding… the photos are fabulous, the location is stunning, I think every detail is perfect. Josie is just so beautiful and Gareth looks fantastic. I adore the heather, the bouquet is amaaaaaazing, the orders of service are gorgeous…. what’s not to love?

The theme for the day was rustic countryside with spectacular tipis and local flowers and food. Josie told me she got a lot of inspiration from wedding blogs and pinterest but choose wedding suppliers through research and recommendations.

If you ever needed proof that you can have a beautiful wedding, on a budget, and make it look even better than all the weddings you see on major wedding blogs – then beautiful bride Charlotte and her handsome groom Jay are here to show you a thing or two. Their wedding is sublime. The location is stunning, the details are gorgeous, and the images are out of this world…

I always look at the guy’s suits when I’m choosing weddings for the blog – and in this case, Jay’s shoes are pretty fab as well! Charlotte told me “We always wanted the men in something a bit different and wool like (especially seeing as though it was a winter wedding) and we just couldn’t find anything like this to hire, and didn’t have the budget to have something made just for Jay. In the end we ended up finding the perfect suit in Next and luckily we could get them all in everyone’s size.” I think they look great.

Millbridge Court is a boutique hotel and wedding barn in the Surrey countryside. The barn is beautiful: with delicious light drifting from the skylights and those wonderful beams, hooks and shelves for you to hang flowers or any decorations from – it’s a pretty, perfect space for a wedding.

Something to brighten your day, my lovely wedding blog friends… beautiful summer wildflower bouquets and the most adorable troupe of flower girls you’re ever likely to see. Sam and Anna’s wonderful Yorkshire wedding will go down as one of my favourites of all time. Their day is full of fun and laughter, love and happiness, and every image tells a story of its very own. Some have made me grin, others give a warm glow…

Real wedding at Hazlewood Castle in Yorkshire with Ian Wallace Photography (46)

Anna is an incredibly beautiful bride. Her smile is infectious: with Sam at her side they make a gorgeous couple. I love the portraits Ian captured of them both around Hazlewood Castle: it’s a venue with knockout looks and some amazing photographic locations. It’s also steeped in a history of kings, knights and historical tales – and I love the romance of adding your own story to the centuries gone before at such a fascinating venue.

Hey lovely! I hope you’re having a great day. I’m currently in foils, going (hopefully) from a rootsy blue to a summery blonde again… and I’m celebrating the arrival of new friends to the English Wedding Blog: the fabulous York Place Studios. I’ll be amazed if you haven’t heard of these guys. They are Dom, Liam, Alex and Matt: photographers and filmmakers with a striking and exciting aesthetic, and a vibrant spirit to everything they do. They’re amongst every blogger’s favourites, and I’m thrilled they’ve joined the English Wedding Blog. Here’s to featuring some incredible weddings over the next few months! Yay!!

I love the life in these guys’ images: the way they can make me grin, bring a lump to my throat and take my breath away with their beauty all in a matter of seconds as I scroll through a wedding. This is what documentary wedding photographers do so amazingly well – and York Place Studios are among the very best.

Weddings are the most wonderful of days; a tapestry of moments is woven together from the smiles, laughter and love of friends and family – and this is true no matter where you choose to marry. Rob and Michele chose a London city centre location for their day. They walked to the venue together (I’d love to see more couples doing this… I LOVE that nervous excitement can be shared!) and from that moment onwards the day is blissfully happy.

I loved photographing this city wedding in London: I always enjoy photographing the life, colours, grandeur and contrast of a city wedding. This wedding was so packed full of memorable moments, I loved that the grooms decided to walk to their venue together through the back streets of London to Westminster. It also allowed me to photograph their walk from a distance, as they shared some fun and intimate moments with the city as a backdrop.

Nadia and Andreas’s wedding is pretty darn special… she’s so amazingly pretty, and they really do look so joyful and content in each other’s arms. Today’s wedding is a treat: beautiful images which capture the atmosphere of a very special day. There are some amazing shots: Nadia’s dress looks divine in every photo, and I love the image of Andreas before the ceremony – no nerves, just pure happiness. Fantastic.

“Nadia was a stunning Bride – so photogenic, and wore her Caroline Castigliano dress so well. It was the first time I’d been part of a multi-faith ceremony – both Muslim and Christian – which made it feel very special. Plus I managed to get my favourite picture of a bride arriving for her ceremony!
