Today’s beautiful feature fits perfectly with our grand millennial wedding style blog from Saturday. Afternoon tea has been such a popular style for weddings in recent years, and with micro weddings a growing trend for 2021 I’m sure this look will be huge for a while yet! I love today’s feature most of all for its story. Lovely Gail Gardner told me the tea set itself has a story: it belonged to her mum, who collected the pieces and treasured them. After she sadly passed, Gail’s dad gave the set to his daughter – a true family heirloom. This editorial feature is all the more special for its story and I’m so proud to be able to share it with you today.
Lush greenery, glorious styling touches and a joyful vibe from this styled editorial at Gunnersbury Park Orangery. The cake is divine; the styling touches just perfect for the occasion. This epic shoot has everything to inspire your botanical wedding, and we love it even more for having two brides! (More like this please! And I’d love to see some two grooms weddings/shoots too!) A huge team was involved in this shoot, and the fabulous images have completely knocked our socks off here at English Wedding HQ. Thank you to lovely English Wedding member Genevieve at Queen Bea Photography for such a stunning submission – and wow, what a way to begin the week!
This stunning wedding inspiration comes from luxury wedding planner and English Wedding member Elegante by Michelle J. Michelle’s eye for beautiful styling is second to none: the blues in this seaside wedding location are perfect. The atmosphere is romantic as can be… just look at the views as the sun sets…
I’d love to feature more Jewish weddings and inspiration features. I love reading Smashing the Glass, where this styled shoot was first shown last month. (If you’re a wedding photographer and you have a real wedding we could feature, please get in touch!) The contemporary Judaica is elegant and perfectly matched to the dreamy blue colour palette. The blue accents everywhere are perfect – the ketubah (marriage contract) is absolutely glorious and the chuppah (canopy) as delicately blue as the summer skies. Oh, and it’s positively loaded with the most breathtaking hydrangeas…
I’ve been so excited to share today’s lovely wedding with you! Ella looks amazing in her floaty light, boho gown and wears an heirloom veil handed down through generations from her great grandmother’s wedding in 1924. Ludo’s her perfect match – I adore that floral tie! These two wanted their day to be very personal, laid back, and fun, with a botanical, English country garden feel. Their wedding is really personal, with Ella doing the flowers and Ludo’s sister making their gorgeous cake. The home made elements make it really special – and hey, who needs a sit down dessert when you can have a wheelbarrow full of ice-creams?!
This. This is one of the loveliest shoots I’ve seen in my EXACTLY 10 years of being a wedding blogger. (Because yes, I’ve just realised English Wedding was born on November 16th, 2009 and it’s our birthday week!) It seems the perfect opportunity to share something very special with you all.
The location is The Railway Barn at New Hall Vineyards. The concepts and styling are by lovely Hayley Jayne Weddings & Events, and images were captured so beautifully by Terri and Lori. I adore Jess’s dress – a stunning design from the inimitable St Patrick brand, loaned from Turner & Pennell in Rayleigh.
