Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you have something lovely planned for this evening… and to keep your hearts full of love and happiness I have a wonderfully romantic and beautiful day to share with you this afternoon. I LOVE this wedding – gorgeous couple Louise and Tom are absolutely perfect for the English Wedding Blog with all their fabulous flowers and such stunning portraits by Kathryn Edwards.

“I bought most of the stuff myself… mainly from Hobbycraft, Etsy or Not on the High Street. I was introduced to Elinor Softley who has her own business in decorating weddings and she was an absolute life saver! She completely understood the theme and ideas I had for the day and couldn’t do enough for us. I don’t know what we would have done without her as she dressed the venue by herself on the Friday and helped to take it down on the Sunday! She is amazing. Her company is fairly new, but she is so talented! It’s called Soft Touch Events and you can hire lots of cool things from Elinor…I think I hired pretty much her whole warehouse!

I love this wedding – Emma and Sean share my taste in books so their table names are just fabulous! They’re a gorgeous couple too – and the details of their day are wonderful.

“I made all of our wedding stationery myself, but I bought everything from The Range and Hobbycraft – with the exception of a copy of ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’ (my favourite book) which I bought from a charity shop, and which featured on every invitation, the table plan, all the signs, the guestbook and the confetti on the tables!”

I totally fell in love with my wedding dress, which was by Charlotte Balbier from The Wedding Room, Chilwell. I tried it on once, thought it might be a bit OTT, so didn’t buy it, but then couldn’t stop thinking about it and so I went in the next day and bought it!
