Happy weekend, lovelies! It’s been a mega busy (birthday!*) week here at English Wedding Blog HQ – I’m celebrating summer and our new shop opening and dashing around like the busy bee I am! Oh, and there’s just one more day for wedding suppliers to apply for my birthday sponsorship offer here.

*I’m somethingty-something. Going on seven. 🙂

Today’s styled shoot is pretty, feminine, summery bliss with unstructured floral loveliness, delicious decorative hoops (I love these!) and the prettiest brides in flowy, ethereal and wearable dresses. It’s a real treat for my birthday week and I hope you love it!

The pretty images are by lovely photographers Rebecca at Farries Photography and Sophie Oldhamstead who spent the day at Maiden’s Barn capturing this gorgeous styled shoot.

I’m so in love with the bouquets from Olivia’s Roses – and the floral theme carries on with beautiful accessories by the very talented Charlotte Rose.

Barn weddings are sooo lovely: the perfect blank canvas, history and character allowing you to blend in with a rustic theme or contrast beautifully with elegance and country charm. Today’s wedding is perfectly pretty and will inspire countryside brides and grooms everywhere! Enjoy 🙂

Real wedding at Maidens Barn Essex by Ayshea Goldberg Photography (11)

Maidens Barn is located in Essex countryside, it’s a rural location and is a hidden gem.  It’s surrounded by tranquil space and farmland.  Because it’s so secluded and peaceful, it gives the feel that there’s nothing else going on in the world on your wedding day – which is exactly how you should feel. It’s beautiful and has a wonderful courtyard which can be used as one of the many scenic backdrops too.

This wedding was just so pretty – I love vintage styles and Jess and James had brought in a styling company that specialise in vintage props.  Jess and James had carefully selected small accents and larger props that reflected what they wanted their wedding day to look like, and in the rustic barn setting it worked so well.


A fabulous snippet of advice from today’s couple: “We did as much as we could ourselves and kept things as simple as possible so that we could spend more on the things we knew we would be able to keep forever.”… and one of the best tips I’ve heard in my years as a wedding blogger. Nina and Alex are officially awesome! Oh, and they’re a beautiful couple too…

Once again The Wedding Shop in Colchester gets a great review on the blog – and when you see how amazing Nina looks it’s obvious why! (I love reading great things about wedding suppliers, it makes me so happy for our little industry!) She accessorised with her Grandmother’s pearls wrapped around her wrist, and champagne satin peep toe shoes by Karen Millen… and she looks so elegant and beautiful.

Another fantastic idea for other couples is Alex’s speech: he didn’t want to stand up and make a speech (and I’m totally in agreement that you shouldn’t do anything you won’t look forward to on the day!) so he made a video which went down a storm with guests… and meant he could relax and enjoy it too.
