Gorgeous couple Madeleine and Andrew celebrated their wedding at Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire in November. Theirs was an elegant autumnal English wedding packed full of personal touches, with black tie dress for the boys and our stunning bride in a classic and beautiful Suzanne Neville dress, purchased from Ellie Sanderson in Beaconsfield. The flowers are warm, colourful and perfectly arranged; the photographs of their day just exquisite – they’re by Katherine Yiannaki Photography.

How did you choose your photographer?

We loved Katherines classic yet relaxed style of photography. She was recommended through a family friend

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Absolutely- Katherine was great to have around on the day, making Andy and I feel really relaxed. It really helped that she included a pre wedding shoot as part of her package so we could get used to the camera and made it run really smoothly on the day. The shots are beautiful and timeless, and we shall treasure them forever

Happy Sunday, beautiful! How’s your weekend going? I forgot to tell you – we spent last night at The Wordsworth in Grasmere, a gorgeous spot for a wedding – so waking up this morning was absolute bliss! I’ll tell you all about it later in the week 🙂 For today though, something VERY special. We’ve been chatting to the wedding & events team at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford recently – it’s a breathtaking and wonderfully unique wedding venue with a stunning balance of contemporary architecture and historic backdrops – half a million years of art and history, to be precise! Today we’re sharing a bridal photoshoot at the Ashmolean, so you can see the place for yourselves… isn’t it incredible?!

The Ashmolean is a rich treasure house. Grand, sweeping staircases and priceless paintings offer a wealth of unique opportunities for photoshoots. Traditional flower arrangements coupled with contemporary bridal wear – a combination of old and new – embodies the breadth of the Ashmolean’s spaces.

Woodland weddings have been one of my favourite styles of the year – and with lovely Lou at Whimsical Wonderland Weddings styling her own day (congratulations, Lou!) after the woodland setting where she was married, the theme looks set to continue inspiring brides and grooms for many wedding seasons to come.

We all love a woodland: there’s a magical element to the sunlight and an abundance of flora and fauna to inspire even the hardiest city dwellers… And woodland settings fire our imaginations: we’ve all lived for fairytales in our childhood, and something of their enchantment never leaves our hearts…

So it was with real excitement that I first looked at this styled shoot sent in by Emma from Goose & Berry. As well as being a boutique caterer, Goose & Berry plan, design and style weddings and wanted to display this within a shoot. Where better to publish the inspirational ideas from a day in the woods than on your favourite wedding blog?! 😉

I’m not a weepy blogger… but it’s totally true that Laura and Rob’s interview for the English Wedding Blog brought a tear to my eye. They’re the most amazing couple: their images are as wonderful as the day they planned around the passions of their family and friends.

There are also, of course, the details we all love: country garden flowers, handcrafted details, wedding signs, miles of bunting and the prettiest dress and accessories you can imagine. All are captured in the romantic and whimsical style of lovely Rebecca from Wild Rose Photography.

Laura told me the best thing about being married is “the feeling of being part of an incredible team and that you can take on the world together.” Need I say more?

Today’s stately home wedding shoot takes us to the magnificent Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire. There are designer dresses by Jenny Packham, Sassi Holford and Suzanne Neville, antique furniture and exquisite stationery to inspire those of you planning a stately home wedding – we’re talking lush, big budget styles with a classic flavour.

Styling a stately home wedding is all about working with the venue to create a gorgeous overall look. In today’s shoot Kelly (The Bespoke Wedding Company) did it with flowers, stationery and delicious accessories to complement the elegant surroundings of The White Room, Waddesdon’s newest wedding location.

Whatever your wedding budget, styling and decor can be scaled to fit your pocket: one thing I love about this shoot is its flexibility: Kelly has created floral displays at the end of the aisle, as centrepieces in tall displays and as scaled-down table arrangements with mercury glass. Choose whichever fits your budget best, and your stately home wedding will look beautiful, I promise!
