We’re thrilled to share this enchantingly autumnal wedding for a gorgeous couple in the Cotswolds. Jess & Tom had to postpone twice – their welcome sign tells quite a story! But their wedding, once it happened, is exceptionally beautiful. Jess is stunning in a dress from The Cotswolds Frock Shop, and Tom’s so handsome in his suit… although Albie almost steals the show with his little dog bow tie! All of the images are by Cotswolds wedding photographer Martin Dabek, who we’re proud to say is a member of English Wedding.

I love exploring Etsy so much – there are some wonderful little wedding ideas on there, and some fabulous UK sellers. I put together this little curation of handmade and beautiful Etsy UK finds.

Full disclosure: I do this because I love it, and if you love and buy any of my finds from this page I get a little commission as an Etsy affiliate. 

I hope you love this month’s little curation!Claire's signature

Here’s a little post I’ve been excited to share with all of you Etsy fans out there! When I’m not falling down an instagram rabbit hole, I’m often tumbling happily down an Etsy slide (is that a thing? I’m totally making that a thing) – and I found these gorgeous wedding treats by UK makers which I’d love to share with you.

A beautifully shot, romantic elopement in Lefkada – beautiful bride Shelby and new hubby Daniel headed away from it all for a dream wedding, and their images by lovely Maxeen Kim are EVERYTHING. It’s been the toughest of years for so many, but I take my hat off to this gorgeous pair for eloping – for focusing on being married, and for staying strong through all the uncertainty of 2020. Shelby is stunning in a Wed2B dress; Daniel’s summer wedding look is from Next. The florals are exquisite – and planner Claire from Lefkas Weddings gets a glowing review from our happy couple!

I’ve jumped at the chance to make the most of every occasion this year – birthdays, Christmas and anniversaries have been extra special. I guess it’s all the romance I’m surrounded by, every single day of my wedding bloggy life! I ordered our V-Day meal from Restokit last night (excited!) and I’ve got my man a few little treats so we can celebrate in style!

Valentine’s Day can be as extravagant or thrifty as you like… many a year I’ve made little ‘vouchers’ (eg ‘I’ll cook up a storm’, ‘movie night’ and ‘one-time-only ironing offer’) – and this time one of my gifts is his fave butterscotch Angel Delight. Yeah I know… But I’ve splashed out on a few little bits, and of course Etsy is my go-to for romantic and creative gift ideas.
