Elopements and escapes are a big part of modern wedding planning! I hear you – all that planning is too crazy, so why not pack your favourite people onto a little plane and head away somewhere sunny to get wed in a beautiful intimate celebration overseas? If travelling is your thing, then a destination wedding could be right up your street. Just keep it simple, don’t forget your trousers (like our friend did – and he realised on the day of his wedding!) and remember to celebrate with a massive party when you get home!

It hardly feels like a full 18 months has passed since I discovered Clare Lloyd‘s exquisite handcrafted bridal jewellery. I’d planned a photoshoot in the Lake District, and seen her pieces online… but when they arrived with the postman I was more than blown away. To have the talent, the patience! to create such intricate jewellery must be a dream. To wear a single one of Clare’s stunningly crafted accessories on your wedding day will, I promise, make you feel amazing.

It breaks my heart to be selling my little Vespa this spring… but at the same time it makes me smile to see this gorgeous shoot on the blog today with a vintage Vespa looking so beautiful and ready for adventures! If you’ve already flicked through the pages of our FREE digital magazine the English Wedding Bible you’ll recognise this…

I think my bouquet would be one of my most exciting wedding purchases – and definitely one of the trickiest to decide on! I love all the flowers (oh! except gerberas and gypsophila!) – so I dream of a tumbling armful of peonies and dahlias, tulips and ferns, hellebores and sweet peas… in all the colours. I fall for a new favourite flower every season so it’s pretty certain I’d be a challenge for any florist… but I know what we’d do: simply find a florist whose own style we adore, and trust them implicitly to create something spectacular! However… as this week is all about our favourite wedding ideas, here’s a beautiful curation of all of our favourite bouquets from the English Wedding Blog! I hope it helps you pin down your flower style!

Let’s face it, a wedding day is a LOOONG day – for both members of the bridal party and the guests too! Whilst you’re enjoying having pictures together, don’t forget your friends and family who’ll be waiting for you – keep them occupied with one (or a few) of these ideas!
