I wanted to share a really pretty wedding with you all today – something elegant and graceful, with a wonderful sense of English charm and tranquility – and I couldn’t think of a lovelier wedding than Christie and Ben’s day. Christie is so very beautiful – a Devon bride whose timeless style reminds me of Audrey Hepburn – with Ben her perfectly handsome leading man. They married at Symondsbury Tithe Barn and chose lovely Linus Moran Photography to capture their day.

“On the day, keep making time for each other. Ben and I kept stealing moments where we would find a quiet spot to soak in the view of our wedding, hold hands, kiss and share tales!

I’ve heard people say nothing changes when you get married. I disagree – there’s a monumental shift and it’s a wonderful one. I love being married. I love hearing Ben introduce me proudly as his wife.

I love this idea! A group of local wedding suppliers coming together to create something inspiring, with no preconceptions, no rules, just creative freedom… and the result is a stunning shoot with a fabulous tablescape and tons of gorgeous greenery. This is wonderful.

Did you know the English Wedding Blog has been a top UK wedding blog since 2011? Time flies when you’re having fun… and I’m constantly surprised by the new suppliers I discover here. Today it’s an incredible venue: Weymouth’s Nothe Fort, where a group of creative Dorset wedding suppliers got together to style one of the best shoots I’ve seen this year!

Lovely Rachel from Exquisitely You wedding & event specialists got in touch to share the shoot with me. I love the way the pretty details contrast with the backdrop of the fort – an old military base (and while I’m a pacifist through and through, there’s something thrilling in seeing a war base taken over and put to better use!) The cake is divine; the flowers super pretty and the balloons and big letters perfectly on trend for a summer wedding!

Who says you have to hire a venue for your wedding? If you have space at home for an intimate wedding, do it your way. Whatever space you find – a farmer’s field for your teepee or a village hall with a sports field you can play on – don’t be scared to be creative with today’s prettily rustic styling ideas based around a chic back garden village wedding.

Lovely Rachel from Exquisitely You got in touch to show me her ideas for a simple back garden wedding style. The shoot is sweet and adorable and has some lovely statement pieces: the chandelier from Linen and Lace is wonderful while Clair Lythgoe‘s flowers are just breathtaking… and the little daisies in our bride’s hair are the prettiest things I’ve seen… LOVE these!
