It has been a whirlwind of a week here at English Wedding HQ! I’ve typed up a 105-page modern calligraphy workbook, written a gold ink wedding table plan and menus for a November wedding, and planned in a bunch of gorgeous real weddings for the autumn – so I’m mega happy it’s Friday today! Having gorgeous couple Charlotte and Dexter on the blog makes it even more special – this is an AMAZING wedding and I just know you’ll love these two – I mean just look at this stunning golden hour photo!!!
Sean & Charlotte’s Coombe Lodge wedding was relaxed, fun filled and full of love. Their theme of rustic romance in blush, cream and greens incorporated traditional touches: lace, hessian, lots of candles and lots of florals. Charlotte is stunning in an Essense of Australia dress, and Sean wears his military uniform – so today’s wedding will appeal to all of you lovelies who are looking for traditional, pretty and classic styling ideas for your day.

Coombe Lodge in Blagdon is one of the loveliest wedding venues in Somerset – as impressive as any stately home on the outside, and beautiful on the inside too! Gemma and Will chose this perfect spot for their romantic summer wedding, and our lovely sponsor Sandy from Love In Focus to capture their day. Gemma is absolutely stunning and I know you’ll love all the magical moments from this classic English wedding.
I like to think the role of wedding blogs is to mix things up a little. While there are always key themes for any wedding season, it’s nice to throw something wonderfully, excitingly different into the mix from time to time. So when lovely Helen from Pudding Bridge showed me this glorious shoot with dusky blues and peach blooms I simply had to share it with you!

Your wedding doesn’t have to have a theme – it just has to reflect your personalities. Cerian and Tom planned a simple, beautiful wedding at Coombe Lodge with homemade touches and pastel colours – but adamantly no theme! And you know what? It works wonderfully.
My lovely sponsor, Bristol wedding photographer Joseph Hall, was there on the day to document it all. His style is natural and creative, perfect for this relaxed and family-oriented couple. I adore the images of their day and I knew as soon as I saw them that you would too!
