Ah… a beautifully styled contemporary wedding with just a little hint of vintage. Kate and David’s big day is gorgeous and inspiring. I know you’ll love it! Kate wore a Stephanie Allin gown with Rainbow Couture shoes, and the couple kept venue decorations simple (to beautiful effect!) Their Suffolk wedding at Smeetham Hall Barn looks fantastic and it’s thanks to wedding photographer Jeff Turnbull (www.jeffturnbull.co.uk) they have such wonderful images to remember their day by.

The little love birds are adorable – I love little touches like this! – and the bunting with calligraphic initials is gorgeous… so enjoy this wedding on the blog and read slowly: there are so many lovely details to inspire you, and also Kate and David’s wedding report at the end of the feature is full of great advice.

Happy new week everybody! How was your weekend? I’ve been to see my teeny tiny baby nephew in the beautiful city of Durham – I’m missing him (and my wonderful sister) already! But there are no post-weekend blues here at English Wedding Blog towers, oh no! For starters I have some lovely calligraphy projects to be doing for Christmas, and I also have a lovely wedding to share with you on this chilly Monday morning. Ruth and Anthony’s English country pub wedding will raise a smile – I hope you like it!

I love the details of their day, and the fact this lovely couple just never stop smiling! They had some gorgeous details – the flowers provided by the venue, which was The Compasses gastropub at Pattiswick, Essex, also the campervan wedding favours, the fingerprint tree, and too many more details to mention here… so I’ll hand over to wedding photographer Jeff Turnbull to show you! All the images are by Jeff, and the beautiful bride and groom have shared their wedding story with you today too – you’ll find it at the end of the feature. I hope you love it! Have a lovely Monday everyone!
