Laura and Tom achieved something pretty rare – they styled an incredibly sophisticated and elegant wedding in a magnificent historical venue, and they made all the finer details by hand. I’m more than impressed: this isn’t as easy as you might think: to create handmade stationery and decor – even the vases – by hand, AND do it so well they fit perfectly in a venue like this… it’s pretty special!

Laura’s absolutely stunning and Tom’s smile lights up the pages of the English Wedding Blog today – they make the most gorgeous couple, and I’m really proud to be sharing their wedding with you today. They married at Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire, and found most of their wedding suppliers online.

Kelly and Phil’s springtime wedding has some of the loveliest touches I’ve seen – it’s a beautiful day with fabulous colours, and I know you’ll love it. Kelly and Phil chose a rustic, woodland style for their day.

Kelly looks absolutely amazing in her Ronald Joyce wedding gown, and I adore her bridal look – there’s an image towards the end of the feature with the newlyweds sat on a wall in the venue’s grounds where you can see the full length of the dress, and it’s so incredibly beautiful…
