Discovering new talent is 100% why I’m even here – and sharing it with you lovely people is one of my favourite things. The Chosen Wedding Fairs have brought so many exciting suppliers to the pages of the English Wedding Blog, and one of the loveliest is Anna from Indigo Yard Floral Design. Her flowers have that intuitively natural beauty which I love so much: I could gaze at her arrangements for hours. We wanted to show you three distinct seasonal looks to inspire your spring, July and late summer weddings today, and I hope you love them as much as I do!

Botanical chic: Jenna & Ruaidhri’s July wedding at The Grange, Belluton

Photographer Credit: Kelly Clarke Photography

We designed all of Jenna and Ruaidhri’s arrangements to contain lots of foliage in different textures with silvery and sage tones, combined with beautiful cream florals and styled with copper accents.

We created two large wild hedgerows either side of the outdoor ceremony space to create romance and drama and as a nod to the beauty of the English countryside.

There’s more than one reason we’re supporting the Chosen Wedding Fairs this year – of course our very own Facebook page editor Claire has taken over the running of the fair, and this has given us the wonderful opportunity to shout about it from the rooftops… but there are so many fabulously creative suppliers involved whose work we’ve featured on the English Wedding Blog before, this is pretty much our dream wedding fair!

Styled shoots – which we’ll always love to bits – are the reason so many of these guys have featured on our pages. If their name is in bold on the list below, they’ve starred on the blog, we know them by reputation and LOVE what they do!

Somerset based From Sally with Love designs wedding stationery with a difference. They don’t roll out the kind of invites and save the dates you see around you – far from it! I love Sally’s characterful and inventive designs, and I know you will too!

We carefully create beautifully unique designs that wonderfully capture you and your partner and everything you have dreamt for your big day. It might be the hidden dinosaur in amongst the foliage and leaves (as in the example here) or drawing the stunning venue where you and your fiance will tie the knot, or even illustrating the flowers you will have in your bouquet. It is creating stationery that you are over the moon with, that is uniquely you and that your guests will love!

From Sally with Love will be at the Chosen Wedding Fair in Bristol on Sunday the 22nd of October.

Wedding shows are an amazing way to discover designers and talents you would never dream even existed… and working alongside Chosen Wedding Fair has led me to some breathtaking discoveries from true talents in the wedding industry. I’m thrilled to be introducing you to lovely Eden b. Studio today – designer Hannah creates the prettiest bridal accessories which are right up my street.

Designer Hannah started Eden b. Studio because she really wanted to create something that was completely her vision. Having always loved the little details in design, the intricacy of this work suits her perfectly. Eden b is based in Tunbridge Wells, at Hannah’s small home studio.

“I’m inspired by natural wildflowers and like to keep my designs quite organic and favour muted tones…there’s definitely a boho vibe to my work.”

My lovely friend Claire, our Facebook page curator and the creative spark behind this year’s Chosen Wedding Fairs, is working incredibly hard in the run up to next week’s London event. I’m absolutely thrilled for her – being involved in one of the UK’s best wedding supplier showcases is something to be so proud of – and she’s just sent me a list of the amazing exhibitors who’ll be there on the day. This is the best kind of sneak peek  – you can totally plan your day at Chosen!

I was already in awe of Viki Pearce when I discovered her beautiful wedding rings via the Chosen Wedding Fair. When I asked Viki if we could run a feature so I could show you her work, she sent me the best photos ever. Exquisite shots of her artisan wedding rings, her wall of vintage hammers and – because I love to know who’s behind the beautiful pieces I see – a gorgeous shot of the designer herself, complete with boots I want for me, like now. Anyone want to join me in a massive #fangirl crush?!

“I create tactile, expressive jewellery pieces using traditional goldsmithing techniques. Inspiration comes from the work of ancient Columbian and Etruscan goldsmiths as well as modern literature and the natural world. I bring out the natural lustre and warmth of gold by using antique tools and natural objects to apply subtle surface textures creating classic and timeless designs that are simple and soulful.

I think it’s really important to remember that every independent wedding business is, in essence, a person. The designers, creatives and makers who produce your wedding bits & pieces are human beings who smile, laugh and love – and each of these unique personalities brings something wonderful to their work. Take lovely Natalie at Mock Up Designs, for example – she trained in architecture before turning her hand to a chic, elegant and playful range of wedding stationery!
