Let’s start the week with a vibrant splash of happy colour, shall we? Lovely English Wedding member Hannah Timm Photography sent this editorial in for us – it’s filled with the most wonderful florals and beautiful styling to brighten your day. I’m head over heels in love with every little detail, from the stunning cake to the stationery and table styling – I can almost smell the sweet peas! The images speak for themselves, but I love how Hannah and Kirsten from The Little Wedding Helper explain the way the concepts all came together.

With love,

Our last wedding of the working week is this fabulously chic and modern celebration from Syrencot in Wiltshire. Yasmin is stunning in her Blue by Enzoani gown, and Mark every bit the English gent in a gorgeous number from Swagger & Swoon. Every detail is elegant and tasteful, as well as being beautifully captured by lovely Natasha from Honeydew Moments. Oh! And the clue’s in the name there… don’t miss the STUNNING golden hour portraits this lovely wedding photographer is known for! They’re towards the end of the feature and every bit worth the wait!

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We were recommended Natasha and after checking out her website we knew she was the photographer we wanted, she has such a great style and we loved her golden hour pictures.

Louisa and Will’s August wedding was filled with sunflowers and rustic, elegant styling touches. I think it’s a perfect promise of summer to come – and I hope it lightens your heart a little this Friday morning. The venue is Lapstone Barn, and the day was full of love, laughter, friends, family – and freely flowing champagne! Grab a cuppa, snuggle for a moment and enjoy the virtual company of this gorgeous pair. All images are by Hannah K Photography, who gets a glowing review from Louisa and Will.

How did you choose your photographer?

I had a recommendation from a friend who was unable to have Hannah as her wedding photographer. When we looked at her website we knew we had found the woman to capture our wedding day. We were drawn to the amazingly light bright and airy style she showcased on her website.

A lot of you lovely couples are choosing very classic, elegant styling touches this year, so when this fabulous shoot landed on my desk I knew instantly you’d love it! This is timeless and beautiful, luxurious but not opulent – and achievable for those of you looking for modern elegance with beautiful details. The venue is Hothorpe Hall, and the styling is by Natalie at Beautiful Arches. All images are by lovely Kathryn Edwards Photography.

“The idea behind the shoot was to show a classic and elegant wedding; an achievable fairy-tale for those brides who dream of looking like a princess on their big day. I purposely didn’t want it to be too trend-led, so it’s quite timeless and classic with a simple colour scheme of white and gold, with just a touch of sparkle. It also features some beautiful details to show how you can bring a luxurious feel to your big day with little touches like monogrammed linen, a ceremony arch, and a nicely framed cake table.”

I am feeling FESTIVE today!! Christmas calligraphy orders are almost done (and we’ve had such a brilliant year with family tree orders and calligraphy workshop bookings – it’s ace!) – I have a new jumper to snuggle into and I’m generally getting in the mood for the party season. So when I spotted beautiful Lauren and Adam’s stunning Christmas wedding from Rachel Joyce in my inbox, it just felt PERFECT to share with you! There’s everything: mulled wine, Christmas trees, sparklers and even SNOW!!

We had met with a couple of photographers who we didn’t feel entirely happy about, then somebody recommended Rachel. She was excellent to communicate with and once we met with her we knew straight away. She was kind and friendly, asked lots of questions and seemed genuinely interested in what we were planning for the wedding. She talked us through her style of photography and showed us albums of previous weddings she had photographed and we knew she was right for us. She clearly loves her job and it shows!

A fabulous snippet of advice from today’s couple: “We did as much as we could ourselves and kept things as simple as possible so that we could spend more on the things we knew we would be able to keep forever.”… and one of the best tips I’ve heard in my years as a wedding blogger. Nina and Alex are officially awesome! Oh, and they’re a beautiful couple too…

Once again The Wedding Shop in Colchester gets a great review on the blog – and when you see how amazing Nina looks it’s obvious why! (I love reading great things about wedding suppliers, it makes me so happy for our little industry!) She accessorised with her Grandmother’s pearls wrapped around her wrist, and champagne satin peep toe shoes by Karen Millen… and she looks so elegant and beautiful.

Another fantastic idea for other couples is Alex’s speech: he didn’t want to stand up and make a speech (and I’m totally in agreement that you shouldn’t do anything you won’t look forward to on the day!) so he made a video which went down a storm with guests… and meant he could relax and enjoy it too.

Hello everyone! Time to take five… drop your pens, put on your “I’m only pretending to work” face (but keep it convincing) and smile! Today’s wedding feature is short and oh-so-sweet… as was the whole wedding planning journey for Liliya & Adenis before their wedding in Nottingham.

Nottingham Council House wedding (1)

Gary from wedding photographers oneLove told me that Liliya & Adenis are Russian (Although Adenis is half Cuban) but live in England. The whole wedding was arranged within 3 weeks so that their families were able to attend. They wanted a typical Nottingham wedding & so they chose the iconic Nottingham Council House.

Liliya is the most beautiful bride and together they make such a lovely couple. Friends and family are an important part of today’s wedding blog, with the bridesmaids often taking centre stage! I hope you love the images – it’s the first time I’ve seen inside Nottingham Council House, so join me and enjoy this real wedding on English Wedding Blog today!
