Hey lovely! I have a wonderfully special and pretty day to share with you this morning – I love the details of Charlotte and Andy’s wedding: the bouquet is stunning, I love her hair, and the whole day just looks like SO much fun! The lighting in the evening is really gorgeous too. It’s the perfect injection of life and vibrance and fun for our Thursday mornings!

“My bouquet was done by the amazing Lindsey from The White Horse Flower Company, it was rounded and had sweet peas, lilac and roses. It looked and smelt amazing and i had more tears when Lindsey bought it to me in the morning. The bridesmaids carried gypsophila and the flowers girls had gyposhilia flower crowns. We also had a large pedestal arrangement set up in the church which got moved after the ceremony to where we had the wedding breakfast, we also had pew ends.”

Bursting bubbles doesn’t always feel good. But today’s article is meant for the bigwigs who exploit us all: brides and grooms, and the hardworking, passionate wedding suppliers who help turn your dreams into reality.

That sort of passion isn’t something I like to see stomped all over.

SOME of the wedding awards bodies here in the UK are a joke. One in particular – which I won’t name – has some shocking business practices which shouldn’t be kept secret. But do remember that others are as fairly run as they can be – so plenty of wedding awards are worth paying attention to.

Don’t blame the suppliers: it’s not their fault. Wedding business owners enter awards competitions on the understanding that they’ll be fairly judged and voted for by real customers: they take pride in their awards as they rightly should.

Autumn weddings have something which warms me to my very heart every time. But Hannah and Rob’s Ufton Court wedding is so very special: the colours, styling and photography are just magical and I know you’re going to love reading about their day.

The flowers are amazing. Hannah told me “I didn’t really know what kind of flowers I wanted so I asked Lindsey [from The White Horse Flower Company] for something autumnal with mulberry and gold. The end result was amazing, and not only did they look great but they smelt incredible too.”

Our couple’s top tip for the day? Spot on: “Let somebody else take control. All of our suppliers had worked at our venue, and together, previously and they were fantastic in ensuring everything ran smoothly.”

Squeeeeeal!!! Today’s wedding is a little bit like living inside a rainbow. There are as many colours as there are surprises, as many glorious details as there are moments and smiles and beautiful memories. I honestly don’t know where to begin!

Lucy and Dan are the loveliest couple, with their own super sense of style and outfits which reflect their personalities (which are, clearly, awesome!) to a T. Their day is styled for a summer fete, with lots of DIY ideas to inspire you all, and was put together with lots of help from friends and family.

I love a creative bride and groom, I really really do! Jenny and Louie are the best of blog stars today with a fabulously creative wedding from Ufton Court Barn.

Jenny’s dress is by Chanticleer, and it’s beautiful. She’s a stunning bride and Louie’s her equally gorgeous other half. Don’t you just adore that flower crown?

The portraits from their day are some of my favourites: Ufton Court is a pretty special venue and one I’ve never featured before on the English Wedding Blog. I’m thrilled to be able to show you around it (virtually hehe) today!

Deciding not to have any particular theme, Louie and Jenny chose things they loved to add personality to their day: the Monopoly table plan is a highlight and the flowers are fabulous as well.
