Happy new week everyone! Let’s begin with something beautiful today… a deliciously pretty pastel themed wedding in Lancashire – and the most adorable little family at the centre of it all. Gill and Ash were married at Beeston Manor and their wedding is all about love and family – and all the more beautiful for it.

The details are divine; the bride and groom sooo gorgeous, and their little boy is absolutely adorable. Every moment, every detail of the day is captured beautifully by Lancashire wedding photographer Arusha’s Images Photography, who Gill and Ash highly recommend! “Arusha is such a wonderful photographer, she photographed our day perfectly, our wedding photos are just so gorgeous and romantic, and are the perfect reminder of our wonderful wedding day, thank you.”

Words by Arusha:

Gill and Ash are such a lovely couple, there was some time in between them organising their wedding and the actual day, so much in fact that they moved and renovated a house, had an absolutely adorable baby boy, and planned all their wedding day! Bearing this in mind, it was a real family day.

I really love this vintage wedding from Bartle Hall in Lancashire – as soon as I saw Jemma and Paul on their photographer Philip Bamber‘s website I knew it was perfect for the English Wedding Blog. You’ll love this…

With a floral table plan, birdcages and pretty details inspired by a vintage theme, as well as the loveliest Benjamin Roberts dress, Jemma and Paul’s wedding is ever so pretty. The photography is gorgeous and you can see more by clicking the link at the end of their wedding report.

Congratulations Jemma and Paul, and thank you Philip Bamber for submitting such a beautiful wedding for me and my readers. Enjoy! Claire xxx

How would you describe your wedding style?

We opted for a vintage themed wedding

A little about the wedding ceremony:

We had a civil ceremony at Bartle Hall in the beautiful Windsor Suite. It was a relaxed atmosphere.

Vintage, elegant, classic… there are too many ways I could describe Steven and Jamie-Emma’s Lancashire wedding. I love their story, their passion and their obvious love for their family and friends.

I also love Jamie’s wedding corset and skirt; I love the teacups and birdcages, the vintage table plan. I love how beautiful Jamie is, and I love the look on her mum’s face as much as I love the laughter and the hug for the little boy after what I hear was the best speech of the day.

Jamie and Ste have written their own wedding report, so I will leave you to read that (and it’s worth spending a few minutes having a real, proper read of this one I promise!) and to admire the lovely and sensitive images taken by contemporary Lancashire wedding photographer Anurag Sharma (Shutterleaf Photography). Let’s kick off with a few engagement photos though, simply because these are gorgeous! (And I miss sunshine!)

More than anything else in the world, your wedding should celebrate you and your love. A wedding should be personal, it should be comfortable and it should be right for you.

So when Rob and Jayne’s wedding landed in my inbox I was over the moon. Here’s a couple who bask in their individuality. Both gorgeous and creative, Rob and Jayne’s wedding was a day to remember, and then some! And Lancashire wedding photographer Jonathan Bean was there to capture the whole day for their album…

The other thing I love is when a groom shares his wedding story. Rob’s wedding report begins with a romantic proposal story which brought a tear to my eye – and he tells the story of his wedding to Jayne so beautifully – so this wedding blogger is now handing over to a better writer, just for one day! Rob…

Enjoy!

I’ve always thought I’d love a handfasting for my own wedding – and when I saw Cat and Jocelyn’s handfasting celebration I loved everything they’d done to create a truly beautiful day. Their civil partnership was at Leighton Moss nature reserve in Lancashire, and images are by Cat and Suz at C. T. Images Photography in Bolton.

The atmosphere on the day must have been wonderful: an outdoor ceremony, the air filled with live music from friends and a traditional handfasting before friends and family. Cat and Jocelyn have written all about their day to share on English Wedding blog – so I’ll hand over the reins to them to tell you all about it.

If you have a wedding or civil partnership to share on English Wedding blog I’d love to hear from you. All the info you need is here: English Wedding submissions

Who proposed, and how?

Jocelyn proposed over a pint of stout in my favourite pub ‘Callnans’ in Cork, Ireland on a very wet night in September 2008

This latest wedding feature from the blog of Manchester photographer Neil Redfern is like a step back in time. With everything from handmade bunting to a vintage bus – and not just your usual red London bus – this is gorgeous!

If you’re planning a vintage wedding, Vanessa and Michael’s day should be the perfect inspiration to fill you with amazing ideas!

bridal party in pink

I love the colours in this shot, and the super cool poses from the bridal party.

Olly and Louise came all the way from Australia and were married at The Great Hall at Mains in Lancashire this summer. I spotted their wedding on wedding photographer Jonny Draper‘s blog and couldn’t resist… Louise is a gorgeous bride, Olly’s so handsome, they make a striking couple and every photo is perfect.

Plus there was the llama, which had me in stitches…

The day begins at The Cartford Inn where the boys are getting ready...

The Cartford Inn is a lovely little hotel not far from Preston in Lancashire.
