This gloriously dramatic wedding style inspiration was submitted by our friend and #englishweddingmember Ayshea Goldberg Photography. I love the moody stationery, the glimpses of gold amongst navy and the deliciously dreamy cake colours. The interiors of Glemham Hall are timeless and traditional, brought to life with opulent florals and daring styling touches. The images are stunning – I will leave Ayshea to tell you more.

With love,

The vision was from Donna, one half of the team at Glemham Hall. She wanted a theme of midnight – dark blue and bold decadence, with a little bit of dark whimsy. The venue is known for its beautiful gardens, so we wanted to showcase how to style the inside for beautiful and dramatic portraits and photo settings. The hall interior is very richly decorated but often overlooked – especially in glorious weather when guests tend to go outside – so by using the rooms and interior spaces we were able to really show how this venue can be used to inspire couples looking for an elegant theme, as well as the versatlity it offers for winter weddings too. The hall has an iconic staircase and is definitely a centrepiece for portraits, so the florist wanted to create a dark fairytale effect with woodland branches, dark roses and lots of candlelight. The dress boutique matched the mood board with some elegant dresses in a variety of styles and fabrics that all suited the theme. The hair stylist and makeup artist also got to be more creative with their looks and show that bold eyes and shaved hairstyles can be a beautiful option for bridal looks.

I am totally in denial of any gales blowing a hoolie outside my window right now!! Come and join me because it’s SPRING here on English Wedding and we’re filling our eyes with sunshine and flowers… and the stunning wedding of Milly and Nick. They married at Little Glemham Church in Suffolk, and celebrated with a beautiful reception at  Glemham Hall in May. Their day was traditional and relaxed, with wild white English flowers and luscious greenery in keeping with the Suffolk hedgerows and pebble greys as they were so close to the sea!

I very nearly went for a wedding dress that was entirely different, the first dress had pockets so instantly I loved it but when I went to try it on a second time with a view to putting down the deposit it was 30 degrees outside and I was so uncomfortable, all I wanted to do was get out of it!

Reams of bunting, oodles of delicious summer florals and a stunning couple make today’s blog the most beautiful thing you’ll see on the internet all day! We’re talking stunning English country garden style blooms with fabulous hydrangeas and a stunning BIG bouquet which our beautiful bride Jess held all day long 🙂 Being six months pregnant on the wedding day didn’t stop Jess from dancing the evening away – she’s absolutely gorgeous, as is Jake – these two are made for each other, you can just tell!

They celebrated at The Keeper and the Dell in Norfolk – a pretty natural environment for a summer wedding. A few extra special touches made the space their own – all the bunting, garlands, signage, handmade crochet blankets and table decorations really bring their wedding to life!

“The venue is a boho rustic venue anyway so foilage was plentiful and wooden crates, glassware and buildings were tasteful and not an eyesore.

It feels a little like summer… and it’s all because of these flowers gracing my screen this morning. I’m bowled over, totally in love with this day and our fabulous bride and groom on the blog this morning. Kate is gorgeous – her bouquet is out of this world and I adore the colours… I also spotted their super lovely table plan, and the portraits of the happy couple are beautifully done.

I LOVE the lavender theme – Kate told me a little more, namely that they wanted to keep things simple: “We did a little decoration, we used Reveries for our venue décor, we just wanted something very classy but low key. Wedding favours were homemade, little bags of lavender for the ladies and little bags of mints for the men.” But oh, it looks so magical!

Hi everyone! I have a really beautiful wedding to share with you again today. Tania and Mark’s style is that of a typically English wedding – just the right amount of frills but no fuss; a gracefully styled day with love, friends and family taking centre stage. The sun shone, the cows came out to see what was going on, the marquee looked glorious and the bride is a beauty. Together Tania and Mark make a gorgeous couple – and their wedding in Suffolk should inspire a few of you I’m sure!

How long did you spend planning your wedding?

12 months

Best bit of budget advice?

We created our own invites and stationery which was hard work but probably saved near to £700. We also sourced our own bar for the evening, which made it cheaper for everybody attending.
