Hey lovely! I hope you have some lovely bank holiday plans, and you’re making the most of the last day of the weekend!! We’re on our way back from a little Welsh adventure this afternoon, and I’m excited to get back to blogging this week (I have some gorgeous features lined up!) but first – an absolutely beautiful wedding from Gloucestershire which I know you will LOVE!!

Rebecca and Laurence’s wedding took place at St Peter & St Paul Church of Northleach followed by a marquee reception. This was a very relaxed wedding with a Pimms garden party, band, gorgeous venue decor and a cake made by the couple’s friends.

The flowers were a huge joy. My best friend Kate loves flowers and had helped out with another wedding, so she reassured me we could do it ourselves. The ladies who arranged our church flowers were incredibly helpful and kindly agreed to pick up some extra bunches and offered to condition them (very important and we couldn’t have done it otherwise). We ordered blue hydrangea, cornflowers, irises, pink roses and delphiniums and used a lot of greenery from our mums’ gardens. The Friday before it was all hands on deck, me, Kate and helpers making large arrangements and jam jar centrepieces while two more friends laid the tables. We used lavender and rosemary sprigs, freshly picked, on the napkins which gave a lovely scent.


Wedding blogs are a journey of discovery, of new places, photographers, designers and couples – and I love writing the English Wedding Blog so much. Today I want to introduce you to the Manor Hotel at Castle Combe – a grand country house in a tranquil Cotswold village.

Hampshire Photographer Jennifer Sinclair knows the venue well. “The Manor House is set in the beautiful picturesque Cotswold village of Castle Combe.  The venue is amazing; such an idyllic and romantic choice of venue for a wedding.

Through the grand entrance gates, the long sweeping drive over the stone bridge, leads to the amazing 14th Century Manor House.  The Manor House is beautiful both inside and out.  With oak framed beams and quaint windows, the bedrooms are perfect for bridal preparations.

The Manor house is set in beautiful grounds and has the most amazing stone steps leading up to the upper grounds which makes an fantastic setting for not going only group photographs but also bride and groom photographs.
