Hello everyone, and welcome to my last real wedding before Christmas – I’ve been saving today’s wedding for a special day as it’s just so beautiful, and I think the romance of an English country wedding is a perfect note to end with in the run up to Christmas day.

I asked Jonathon and Louise to describe their wedding in just one sentence, and this was their reply:

I married my best friend, and got to share it with all of our loved ones in a beautiful setting with yummy food and wine!

Isn’t that beautiful?

And as gorgeous as the images of today’s wedding are, it’s all about the love for this adorable couple. Congratulations Louise and Jonathon, and thank you ever so much for sharing your wedding story with us today on the English Wedding Blog. Many thanks also to wonderful London wedding photographer Rik Pennington for submitting his beautiful images to the blog. Everyone – you’re going to adore this wedding. Enjoy!

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely week. I’m working on a few little blog features for the weeks ahead and I’ve had to turn off the TV, avoid reading anything online or in magazines and steer pretty clear of wedding blogs and websites – as well as my inbox!

The Great Gatsby

Is it me or do they look a tiny bit bored already?

Why? I’m all Great Gatsbied-out.

Art Deco is a wonderfully inspiring style. It doesn’t quite fit with my wedding calligraphy business, but the striking lines and impactful fonts make for amazing wedding stationery. The glitz and glam are to die for as far as wedding dresses and bridal accessories go. But I need to make a confession: it’s not really me.

So I’m looking for fresh alternatives to Gatsby styling and wedding ideas which aren’t inspired by art deco this week! Can you help me?

Sometimes a breathtaking wedding venue can set the tone for your entire wedding day. If you book The Daffodil in Cheltenham you’ll be whisked right back to the art deco era, as Duncan and Natalie found, much to their delight!

I was completely bowled over by this incredible wedding venue and the beautiful ambience Duncan and Natalie created for their wedding reception.

Duncan told me, “We love The Daffodil and it sort of dictated the theme, being an art deco cinema. We encouraged fancy dress and were delighted with the effort that everyone went to.”
