Morning lovelies! How was your weekend? We’re all Christmassed-up at English Wedding HQ and ready to party from right now!!! But first… of course we have some fabulous weddings and ideas to share with you this week. We’re starting with gorgeous bride and groom Rosie and Dom, who were married in September at The Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.

Photographer Lee Maxwell got in touch – shooting Rosie and Dom’s wedding made him the first ever wedding photographer at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum to capture a wedding ceremony. The wedding reception was at Double Locks – a wonderful venue for a relaxed wedding reception. The spirit of this gorgeous wedding really comes across in the photos, which I hope you’ll love as much as I do!

We made all our own decorations and it was worth it, but it required lots of planning and preparation and we still ended up spending a bit on things we didn’t need in the end. Although we’re not particularly creative people and we gave ourselves lots to do, it was manageable because we knew our limits and didn’t try anything too ambitious. But until we’d actually finished I was definitely worried it wouldn’t look right!

Katherine and Calum’s wedding is such a beautiful one – this lovely couple were married in a cosy candlelit barn, served up comfort food and mulled drinks and used soft whites and styling touches for their winter wedding. The wonderful images are by Devon wedding photographer Lee Maxwell.

“My flowers were an informal posy of soft, blossomy white flowers (with touches of navy from some anemones). The bridesmaids had relaxed bunches of gypsophila. The florist was Earth Gallery Flowers, who were incredibly helpful in providing some initial advice as to what would work best and what was readily available in winter.

My wedding dress was by Catherine Deane, who creates beautiful, floaty, ethereal designs. The boutique where I found it was The Ivory Secret in Crediton – a gorgeous little shop run by the two most helpful ladies; it is like stepping into a dream. I had been to three shops and seen lots of dresses that I liked, but hadn’t had that ‘this is the one’ moment that everyone talks about. I was starting to dismiss it as a myth… until I tried on what eventually became my dress. Strangely, it wasn’t the one that I was most enthusiastic about when I saw it on the hanger, but as soon as I was in it I knew it was absolutely perfect.
