I consider myself a fierce supporter of British talent in the wedding industry. I’ve been approached by some major US brands who’d love to feature their wares on the English Wedding Blog… and I’ve always said no. My blog exists to help local brides and grooms find the best suppliers close to home, and I truly love discovering our own amazing designers.

Do visit the designers’ websites, find your nearest stockists and get yourself an appointment if you can. They’re amazing, inspiring and creative… and the Maggies and Angelos of this world simply can’t compare! 😉

Choose high tiers and elegant icing for your neoclassical wedding cake

Style your wedding cake with straight lines, architectural details and alabaster colours… this beautiful white tiered wedding cake brings to mind the architecture of Greece and Rome with high tiers and softest white icing. Details are kept to a minimum with elegant clusters of the thinnest sugarpaste flowers. By Krishanthi – www.cakesbykrishanthi.co.uk

Choose a venue with wow factor to impress your guests

The Hurlingham Club has a magnificent arched ceiling your guests will love – it’s a blank canvas with plenty of natural daylight for wedding photography – and needs little decor to create the most luxurious wedding reception space for your luxury celebration.

It makes me incredibly proud to see some of the superb talents we have in the English wedding industry. I love to showcase exceptional suppliers, and one of the very best is the inimitable Petra Opperman.

Petra’s exquisite taste often combines classical music with astonishingly beautiful design and styling: I know when Petra curates a styled shoot it will be divine. Today is no exception, and I have a luxurious styled shoot in two parts to share with you on the English Wedding Blog (with an exclusive “Get the Look” feature full of details and design this afternoon at 3!)

Your wedding can be the most magical, creative adventure. Styling ideas to fit your personalities can bring self-discovery and uncover talents you never knew you had! Wedding designers are our creative inspiration, and a wedding ideas shoot can fire our imaginations in the most wonderful way. And this is one of the best…

wedding ideas shoot Cliveden House (9)

I was honoured to be asked to contribute to a styled wedding shoot at Cliveden House, organised by the very lovely Petra Opperman. Petra is a wedding designer and planner based in Windsor, and is the talented stylist behind this gorgeous ideas shoot. The concept alone is incredibly romantic – and will resonate with music lovers everywhere. I adore the rich, luscious colours and subtle influence of the classical music theme. The colours are rich and warm, perfectly suited to any sophisticated wedding venue.
