We all have a favourite season – right now mine is summer, but I’ll admit: I have a new favourite at LEAST four times a year. Right now – I’m all about springtime. Cherry blossom, buds and new life appearing … and the dream of spring sunshine. So for those of you planning a spring wedding, or if you just adore the spring season, today’s feature will bring joy to your heart.

With images by the rather fabulous Chloe Ely Photography, Blossoming Beauty focuses on an emergence of beauty from an ethereal, sleepy background of winter. It juxtaposes minimalism with fine art, providing artistic inspiration for the discerning bride with an eye for detail.

With thoughtful, beautiful styling by Sarah Shuttle at Barton Court and delicate spring flowers from Hannah Lauren, the shoot evokes spring in the gentlest, most glorious way. The colours and tones on F & H Country Cakes‘ wedding cake are just out of this world!

It was in the colder months of the year that lovely Sam Cook Photography got in touch to share this – a wonderfully warming, authentic and artfully styled shoot from The Lost Orangery, Euridge House in Colerne, north Wiltshire. I fell head over heels for its beauty: the crumbling walls, elegant florals and gentle autumnal hues. See below for the full supplier list!

Hi lovelies! How is your wedding planning going and are you hooked on Pinterest yet? I’ve spent today falling down random Pinterest holes… it’s not been a mega productive one so far! And the photoshoot I’m about to share with you hasn’t helped at all… there are so many stunning ideas here. We’re talking late summer wedding style – for that brief period of time when the summer begins to fade and wisps of autumn stir the air. A delicate, pastel colour palette still works this late in the season, but tinged with plum tones and darker pinks the look becomes something truly special to work with the earliest days of autumn.

Images are by our lovely friend and sponsor Amanda Karen Photography, with a fabulous team of creative London wedding suppliers at Clissold House in Hackney, London.

Today’s editorial feature is simply divine. I adore the natural colour palette, the earthy styling and dramatic florals – this is the perfect combination of grace and organics, and I hope you will love it as much as I do! Images are by Katy Jones Photography, and a full supplier list is below so you can check out some amazing Devon wedding suppliers!

I’ve heard some criticism of styled shoots recently (did you catch me on The Icing On The Cake podcast this week and last? Zoe did a brilliant job putting together interviews with me and Kat from Rock n Roll Bride where we shared our thoughts on wedding planning, trends and styled shoots! It’s worth a listen!) – namely that they can be too aspirational and expensive to recreate for a full scale wedding.  Today’s shoot on the English Wedding Blog is perfect to me because the look is achievable: it’s beautiful in simplicity, the table arrangements are perfect for a display area being wild and natural, and the look created is laid back, uncomplicated and frankly a beautiful breath of fresh air.

So here’s a crazy thing: a collection of some of the most AMAZING wedding photos I’ve seen all year, from a couple who told me, “Most of our guests didn’t realise we had a photographer, which is how Colin [of Colin Nicholls Photography] manages to get such beautiful, natural shots.

Today’s real wedding comes from the beautiful Hertfordshire wedding venue Loudwater Farm – another wonderful thing I’ve somehow managed to never feature on the English Wedding Blog before. And so it sort of feels as though my Christmas has come early.

Jess and Joe are both gorgeous. Their wedding is perfect – it’s one of my favourites of 2015 (which I’ll be sharing in a special feature in January). DIY was a major part of their day, and Jess told me “My mum was an absolute hero and took charge of the homemade elements. She loves crafts, and gave us so many good ideas for decoration, as well as making it all!” But the homemade side of this wedding goes above and beyond: Joe even brewed most of the beer! How awesome is that?!!
