Hey lovelies! As you read this I’ll be on top of a mountain, somewhere in the Lake District. (We’re using up my man’s holidays while the sun shines!) I’ve had this gorgeous wedding up my sleeve for some time now – Henna and Jason are a stunning couple and their day is full of joy and love and life – it’s just beautiful. Henna is also a talented modern calligrapher, and her vow booklets are exquisite. As calligraphy is my thing I fell head over heels with these and couldn’t resist sharing them with you! The wedding took place just before lockdown at the beginning of the year.

With love,“english

How did you choose your photographer?

As great things are so often found, we discovered Ben & Hannah through a friend’s recommendation. Photography is really important to Henna, and it took no time at all to know that HBA were who we wanted to capture the special day. We loved their style and especially their play with shadows.

This year has been wonderful for the English Wedding Blog – I’ve met and worked alongside some incredible people, and we’ve featured the most stunning weddings… you can still find them all by navigating the menu at the top of this page. So as we snuggle into our Christmas pyjamas, crack open a crate of mulled wine and sprinkle ourselves with glitter here at English Wedding Blog HQ, I wanted to leave you with one last wedding before the holidays begin… and it’s a stunning, gracefully festive, delicately sparkly celebration you will LOVE!! Louise looks incredible – the entire day just makes me smile, it’s so beautiful. Happy Christmas everyone!Claire

Stunning winter wedding ideas with Rachel Joyce Photography (30)

We went for an urban venue with Christmas and Winter being the main focus of the celebration, we used rustic logs, berries and winter roses throughout. We had hot chocolate, mulled wine, warm cookies, tartan blankets and a snow machine to complete the vision! I used a local florist for my flowers – we were a little limited on what was available on 29th Dec in between Christmas and New Year but I was thrilled, we went for deep reds, roses and berries.
