Welcome to the Easter weekend! I hope you’re enjoying a lovely, lazy day (and sunshine! Isn’t this wonderful?!) – but do take a moment to scroll through today’s fabulous wedding on the blog. Our bumper week of real weddings continues with this gorgeous celebration at Larmer Tree Gardens. Tamzin & Martin’s wedding is a jewel coloured abundance of quirky but classy, with glorious pops of colour and the prettiest peacock-inspired details! Images are by our amazing and talented friend Sheryl at Oobaloos Photography – I hope you love them as much as I do!
“But we loved with a love that was more than love—
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.”
Edgar Allen Poe’s hauntingly beautiful love poem Annabel Lee inspired today’s breathtaking bridal shoot. I adore the luxury, the timelessness and opulence of everything you’re about to see.
Images are by lovely Amanda Karen Photography who explains, “The dark and romantic nature of this poem was woven through the shoot with deep reds, elegant blacks and opulent golden touches. Hedsor House was a natural choice for the venue with its iconic looming stature and its luxurious interiors.”
Winter weddings can mean frosty, ice blues and silver, or rich tones, warming reds and candlelight… today we’re thrilled to be sharing these gorgeously vibrant wedding style ideas from a wonderfully talented team of Cornish wedding suppliers at The Cow Shed.
The flowers are rich, red, with textures and tons of foliage. Lighting and candles are key. Rustic styling (twigs? we LOVE!) and mosses make this a wedding styled shoot we could just melt our little hearts right into.
Today’s styled shoot features a cast of north west wedding superstars, creative talents I’ve admired since the beginning of the English Wedding Blog a whole 6 years ago. Kerry Baker‘s fabulous make up steals the show. Flowers by Red Floral are breathtaking. Jane at HF Couture‘s designer hair accessories are exquisite; the images by Teresa C Photography are out of this world. This is bridal style without compromise: a brave, striking and different look for those of you who don’t wear pastels. I LOVE this.
It’s perfectly possible to make any theme look amazing: Katrina and Pete’s “twist of Harry Potter” wedding knocked me for six when I saw their gorgeous, vintage-inspired hanging table names. Wow. This is a wedding I KNOW you’ll love.
“The table plan was old keys that I bought and attached little butterfly wings to each one. We hung them on fishing line and attached them to a tree where we had the welcome drinks. They were supposed to resemble the flying keys from the first harry potter book. The effect was awesome and everyone took them home as a keepsake.”
