This is bridal inspiration with oodles of romance and femininity, and a modern twist which I absolutely LOVE! Today we’re at Chicheley Hall with a super talented team of wedding suppliers. These guys pulled it out of the bag and created the dreamiest inspirational photoshoot – I will hand over to lovely Ellen Sear Photography to share their ideas with you!

Fresh, Floral & Bridal Glam at Chicheley Hall (7)

What do you get when you combine soft pink pastels, fresh florals, boho bridal attire with rose gold detailing? In short, an effortlessly glamorous celebration of all that is romantic. This styled editorial shoot took inspiration from every little girls “dream wedding”. You know the one; the big illustrious venue, thousands upon thousands of flowers, the bridal gown of dreams… Well, we made it happen. Every bride wants to feel like a princess on their wedding day and we wanted to plan a shoot that was fit for a queen!

Morning lovelies! Today’s shoot has all the most incredible details and ideas for a modern, romantic wedding in the countryside. The styling is beautifully curated, and the suppliers chosen for this shoot worked together perfectly to create a stunning overall look with eye-catching elements on the same theme. The cake is incredible: it’s by Holly Miller, whose sculpted and stylish creations take my breath away! I’m equally in love with Flourish & Grace’s gloriously cheerful florals, the fabulous table styling by Leanne Elizabeth Weddings and stunning stationery by Fine Art Calligraphy. If romance and femininity is your thing, you’ll need your Pinning fingers at the ready because this is one AMAZING wedding look! Every breathtaking image you’re about to see is by lovely James and Kerrie Photography.

With love,

Morning lovely! Today we have a family-oriented wedding which is as beautifully styled as can be. Gorgeous bride Laura married her love Billy at the Saddleworth Hotel, Oldham. They involved their twins in the day, with daughter Eva reading a poem for the ceremony and bringing a tear to everyone’s eye – the family pictures are some of my absolute favourites. Styling touches are kept simple and elegant in white with foliage detail, and the stunning photography is by Jo Bradbury.

I loved the photographs from Jo, there was lots of natural spontaneous moments that Jo captured. From start to finish Jo was brilliant on the day and took all the pressure off Billy and I, I loved the woodland shots.

Morning lovelies! When this bridesmaids special landed in my inbox I thought it was a really sweet idea to share. Wedding days are special from the moment you wake up, and for those of you starting the day with your best girls you’ll make some really special memories for you all to treasure. Here’s a lovely reminder of what you all have to look forward to! This was sent in by hair and make up artist Kate Waller, who is based in Kent.

With love,

The morning of the wedding (for bridesmaids everywhere, with love) (6)

 

The shoot is for the bride and her bridesmaids. I wanted to do a shoot which showed a story of the morning of the wedding and how and what brides could use to make the best of the morning with her bridesmaids. I’ve included a breakfast, processco, silk robes, hair and make up being done, the wedding shoes being showcased and to the bridesmaids helping the bride with her dress before the ceremony. It’s such an exciting part of the day and a part that can be relaxing with moments to remember with the nearest and dearest…

These two are the most adorable couple – beautiful and happy on their wedding day. Philippa is stunning in her 1920s style dress – and wonderfully honest about her experience of finding ‘the one’ when it comes to dress shopping. Their photographer was our lovely friend Grace Elizabeth, whose images are simply breathtaking. You will LOVE this! Have a magical weekend everyone! xxx

Mark & Philippa's joyful Holmewood Hall wedding, with Grace Elizabeth (5)

How did you choose your photographer?

Philippa’s sister-in-law is a photographer so she helped us understand what we were looking for. She managed to get us a shortlist of 20 or so photographers who were available on our Wedding Day which we went through and picked our favourites. Grace Elizabeth was the first one we got in touch with and within a couple of hours we’d spoken on the phone, decided she was definitely the one for us and booked her!

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I’m still away from my desk on a Big Adventure – but of COURSE I’d never leave you without something beautiful to feast your eyes on. Today’s Parley Manor wedding is full of glorious sunflowers, with stunning bride Carley rocking an unusual and beautiful Maggie Sottero gown. She and handsome hubby Dan describe their wedding as a “relaxed cocktail fuelled sunny garden party in the perfect setting” – which is everything I think a wedding should be!

The day was styled around summer colours and sunflowers, with red accents (and the bridesmaids look fabulous in gorgeous red Watters Wtoo dresses to suit the theme). Carley and Dan found their suppliers via their venue, and then did their own research online to put together their perfect team of creatives to make their dream day come true!

Today’s wedding is wonderfully sunny and warm, beautifully styled and sooo romantic – it’s absolutely wonderful and I’ve been so excited to share this with you! Gorgeous couple Amy and Niall were married in Somerset, and styled their day around their backgrounds: as Amy is from Yorkshire and Niall is from Wales they incorporated both of these into their day.

They chose the tythe barn at Priston Mill as their wedding venue, and our lovely friend Priston Mill wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day. So grab a cuppa and join us as we enjoy scrolling through the beautiful photographs of this rustic, relaxed, natural wedding day, full of love and laughter!

Join me today for gorgeous Sarah & Rob’s wedding in Hertfordshire, with tons of creative details and special personal touches, and with a fabulous bunch of recommended wedding suppliers who helped bring together this stunning Micklefield Hall wedding. Our bride and groom celebrated in The Great Barn at Micklefield Hall, and chose Buckinghamshire wedding photographer Damion Mower to capture their day. I’m proud to say Damion is an English Wedding sponsor and was voted as the 2019 Wedding Photographer of the Year, South Central region, at The Wedding Industry Awards!

Rob and Sarah were wed in March, choosing Micklefield Hall for its impressive Great Barn which really lent itself to their country casual wedding style. The flowers brought a softness and colour to the room, including the venue’s own flower screen which is part of the venue for couples who use the barn for their ceremony. For the marquee, which was perfect for the drinks reception, Sarah & Rob added more decoration to make sure it was dressed for the occasion – outdoor and table signs, photo displays and cute touches with a bicycle theme (as Rob is a keen cyclist). I love it – I really hope you do too!

Happy Monday, lovelies! How was your weekend? Did you see our FOUR features on English Wedding this weekend? Huge thanks to Jordanna Marston Photography for sharing her best 10 London wedding venues with us on Saturday – that was fab! And we LOVED the sustainable wedding inspiration shoot on Saturday morning. Lovely Charlene‘s wedding videos (Love Gets Sweeter) made the blog look so lovely on Sunday. Meanwhile, we have been sofa shopping and then walking in the mountains… a weekend of two halves! I’m pooped – but happy to be at my desk again and ready to share some wedding loveliness with you today!

Jenn and Jon were married in September at Barley Wood in Somerset, and chose lovely English Wedding member Howell Jones Photography to capture their day. Jenn told us the venue is owned by the YMCA and all the proceeds go back into the charity. They train apprentices on site who look after the grounds and the venue – they have a really relaxed, laid back attitude, but give great constructive advice and support.

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!

They say weddings are all about the love, the romance, the emotions and moments… and then someone shows me THESE BALLOONS and suddenly weddings are all about that instead!! Am I wrong? But aren’t they fun and pretty and brilliant? I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding because – [balloons, obviously?] – it’s a real family affair, with the little ones even helping to make the wedding favours! The venue is London Shenley Club (Hertfordshire). The pics by our lovely friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography are a breath of fresh air, the details are wonderfully creative and Becky and Liam are just the most gorgeous-looking pair too!

Becky and Liam described their big day as like a big, summer children’s birthday party, with cricket! They included all the best things about summer: the outdoors, sunshine, cricket, Pimms, barbecued food, ice cream, children running around in the grass… and you know what? When a wedding is all about family and children it becomes SO much FUN!
