Morning my lovelies! I have a STUNNER of a winter wedding to share with you today – I don’t think I’ve ever seen quite so many beaming smiles from a wedding we’ve featured on English Wedding. Mike and Khiley are ultra sophisticated, sexy and chic – their wedding is one of those knock-your-socks-off occasions full of joy and happiness. I have a feeling we’re going to leave you glowing for the rest of the day.

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We found Oliver on Instagram & immediately fell in love with his style. Fun, documentary style shooting but full of personality.

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

Oliver was a total joy on the day. He felt like part of the wedding party. Everyone loved him… then the photos came back & they were more than I could have dreamed of. He caught the essence of our day totally!

Allow us to whisk you away this Monday morning to the Greek islands. Our gorgeous couple Lauren & Sam were married on a beautiful summer’s day, with family joining them from all over the world. Sam’s elderly aunt travelled all the way from India, which was a delight for the happy couple! It was her first time in Europe and she loved it, especially having all the family together! They had a Mehndi in the evening, with the wedding ceremony the following day. The images capture the atmosphere of the celebrations beautifully, and there’s a gorgeous video of their day for you to enjoy below too.

I’ll leave you to read about their glorious destination wedding, with details from our beautiful bride Lauren.

We met at church in Paris! We were both living and working in Paris and we were attending the same church. We became good friends and it started from there! The proposal was Jan 1st 2018 – Sam came to North Carolina while I was visiting my family and surprised me with a ring! (which I was totally not expecting). We were alone at a friend’s house and it was just a really nice moment between him and I.

I LOVE a local wedding! Living on the edge of the Lake District is a dream. We’re there every weekend exploring the mountains (and valleys, right now!) and the landscape never fails to take my breath away. Needless to say, it’s my favourite place for weddings and so sharing Jen & Alex’s day with you today is soooo exciting! Most of all I love their day for its relaxed and elegant vibe. Beautiful bride Jen’s dress is non-traditional…. stunningly slinky with a daring thigh split and incredible back detail, it’s by Atelier Pronovias. Alex looks fantastic in chinos and a classic white shirt (because suits are NOT a rule…. or if they are, they’re the first rule to break! I love this look!) The gorgeous couple chose a few of my favourite suppliers for their day: lovely Helen Jane Smiddy was their photographer; Kevin from Brackens of Bowness (“the unofficial god of flowers”) provided their amazing florals, and talented Charlotte of Sugar Ruffles designed their gorgeous wedding cake.

With love,

Good morning! I have been waiting for MONTHS to share this stunning wedding with you… lovely Lisa & Mark were married in December – and the Christmas tree just seemed perfect to share with you right now. Who has their tree up? Ours is on its way down from the loft tonight and I’m excited to get the baubles out later! It won’t compare to this beauty though…

The images from Lisa & Mark’s wedding are by our lovely friends at Amanda Karen Photography. This is Christmas with class and fabulous style: a black tie do with silver and white, eucalyptus and plenty of sparkle. Lisa is spectacular in a Stewart Parvin gown and Jimmy Choos; Mark’s Hugo Boss suit is uber smart and sleek for a sophisticated winter wedding at Caswell House.

I met Amanda and Hutch at The National Wedding Show in London and instantly loved their style and vision. It helped that they were both so warm and friendly and instantly understood the vibe we were after for the big day.

I am LOVING all of this sunshine!! What a fabulous weekend it’s been so far – and it’s about to get that little more amazing because I have the most stunning wedding to share with you! This is gorgeous couple Laura & Tom, who married at Northbrook Park in May. Laura wears the dreamiest boho dress by Inbal Raviv, which she bought from Luella’s Bridal and wore for the entire weekend: it was so beautiful she didn’t want to take it off! The beautiful images are by lovely Fiona Kelly Photography.

We looked at quite a few photographers online, and went through lots of different albums to see their respective style. We both wanted someone who would take natural photos, and really capture the essence of the day rather than posed, structured photographs. Our brief was to be the fly on the wall that captured everyones emotion throughout the day. We found Fiona online, and after a quick Skype call decided she was the one for us!

Hello lovelies and happy Friday! I’m currently in Manchester prepping for (lunch) my calligraphy workshop tomorrow – it’s a sell out and I’m so excited! – but couldn’t leave English Wedding without a gorgeous feature for your Friday… and oh my, this wedding is special! Kate is more stunning than I have words for, in a beautiful Suzanne Neville gown. She tried on over 100 wedding dresses… and I’m so glad she found this divine design from Suzanne’s collection because it is breathtaking.

Let’s not forget the gorgeous groom – Jonathan’s black tie wedding look is just perfect: the tux is from Hugo Boss, with a bow tie from Tom Ford – I love this American wedding trend, which we’re seeing more and more in the UK these days. Oh, and before I forget – that opulent flower wall? Hired from Silks in Bloom. Isn’t it amazing?!

Today’s wedding is just stunning – I especially adore the vibrant floral arrangements, and the bride and groom are gorgeous!! Ventnor Botanic Garden is a revelation…what a beautiful location with all those tropical plants… if I was on the Isle of Wight I’d be making a beeline for the place to find out more!

Erika’s dress is fabulously different and she looks amazing – while Justin is equally gorgeous and beaming with happiness (I wish I could hear his speech – the photos don’t do it justice!) So grab a cuppa and find a comfy chair, enjoy this lovely pair’s fabulous wedding pics, and have the most wonderful Friday everyone!!

We went to Ventnor botanical garden wedding fair and loved her style and found Holly really friendly and approachable. We booked her then and there.

We really couldn’t have asked for better photos!!! We love all of them. Holly has captured the day so perfectly and no awkward poses, showing family and friends our photos, we have been told many times how amazing the photos are!!!
