Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve had an amazing holiday and enjoyed the 100 real weddings I featured on the blog over Christmas. Time now for the first real wedding of 2015… and it’s just gorgeous. I love the little details today’s bride and groom created for their day – their attention to detail is wonderful; there is plenty here to inspire your own big day and I know you’ll love it!

Siobhan is beautiful, wearing a lace dress with a delicate belt. Her accessories are fabulous – and I adore her bouquet, by Leonora Rose. The styling of the day is a highlight though – with friends and family all pitching in to help with stationery design, decorating, table arrangements and the seating plan there’s so much to see!

Kristen and Adam’s winter wedding has everything: a pretty sense of style, DIY details and quirky personal touches which are special to them. This gorgeous couple chose to marry at Northbrook Park in winter, for the very best reasons: “it is a lot cheaper and you get to go somewhere really nice and sunny for honeymoon! 🙂

It’s this kind of creative thinking I love best about UK couples! And creativity is a key part of their wedding style too: Kristen and Adam put so much into styling their wedding with DIY invitations and details – they did an amazing job and the overall look of the day is wonderful.

Kristen is a stunning bride, wearing a gown by Sophia Tolli with Vivienne Westwood pearls and shoes by Rainbow Club. She’s radiant in the winter sunshine and looks so incredibly happy with new husband Adam – the perfect English bride and groom.

What could be more lovely than a beautiful sunny day in May, an eighteenth century country house hotel and a gorgeous wedding inspired by Pinterest and wedding blogs? Clare and Andrew have written a wonderful wedding report to share with us all and I’m so pleased and proud to have their big day on the English Wedding Blog.

Cubley Hall is a charming Yorkshire wedding venue with period features set in the rolling hills – where Andrew and Clare escaped for a few quiet moments to have some of the loveliest portrait photos I’ve seen. They chose Mark Tierney (Tierney Photography) to capture their wedding and told me he was brilliant, which is always fantastic to hear.
