Jenny and Ben’s August wedding is instantly a favourite for me – they’re the loveliest, sweetest couple and their day just rocks my wedding bloggy WORLD!! There are some wonderful ideas I just know you’ll love – aside from the hundreds of pom poms, there’s a mobile gin factory on a VW camper van with jars of spices and copper pots to make your very own wedding gin right there on the day – genius. There are sunflowers and pinwheels in a rainbow of colours, along with fairy lights everywhere, and fabulous vintage style tea length dresses, and GLORIOUS florals – it’s just everything. Jenny looks stunning in her Brighton Belle dress. Ben’s relaxed look gets a huge YES from me: suits are not obligatory for weddings, guys! He looks fab – and more than anything, the happiness between these two is infectious. They describe their day as “a colourful rustic, vintage, craft collaboration with a gin twist!”
Hey beautiful! Today’s wedding is a treat – an all-out floral feast in the simplest of colour schemes, with stunning images and a focus on family. This Mill Barns in Alveley wedding has pretty much everything – and I love the images, by Deborah at Stott Weddings. The styling and lighting makes this a really impressive day to share on the blog – with Perfectly Unique Occasions providing a floral arch and blossom canopy trees to style the ceremony and wedding breakfast tables.
“The Mill Barns is a beautiful venue without much extra decoration needed and in beautiful surroundings too! However we chose Perfectly Unique occasions to dress the venue, which they did beautifully and it was truly stunning what they did! We chose our items beforehand but seeing it all together in the day was just incredible!
We made part of our favours ourselves, we had personalized m&ms in little jars for a little sweet treat for our guests! For the little guests at our wedding we made goody bags, with wedding crafts, activities, coloring, sweets and bubbles!
Welcome to the weekend! And OMG – to June! And roll on summertime… I can’t wait for lazy sunny evenings and beach sunsets 🙂 Today I have a stunning late summer wedding to share with you. Gorgeous couple Rachel and Ben had a very relaxed, informal, vintage-inspired day with a party vibe for the evening party. The wedding breakfast was loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, complete with mismatched crockery and vintage cake stands with styling touches in dusky pinks and mauve.
Rachel’s dress is stunning – the perfect princess style and it suits her perfectly! She told me she tried on 8 dresses before falling in love with this Essense of Australia gown from Ava Rose Hamilton. The guys – including Ben and their 7 year old son – wore lovely 3 piece Marc Darcy suits. Ben’s tie and pocket square were champagne coloured to match Rachel’s dress.

Hey lovely! I have another fabulous wedding to share with you today – this one I totally adore for all the pretty styling touches, and for our gorgeous couple whose stunning smiles are making me grin back at my screen today! I love the leafy, foliage-centred stationery and the cute knitted people (my mum used to make these! Anyone else?!), oh and the gloriously light and airy colour palette which just couldn’t be more perfect for a marquee wedding. Photos are by our wonderfully talented friends at Amanda Karen Photography (and Danielle & Joe’s review of one of my fave wedding photographers makes me a very happy wedding blogger indeed!).

Amanda Karen Photography was recommended by someone we knew and I looked on Amanda’s social media and website and knew it was the style I wanted – natural and in the moment.
Happy weekend! Thank you so much for sticking around to enjoy the English Wedding Blog this week – we’ve had a wonderful week full of weddings and style inspiration and I’m thrilled to be sharing yet another real wedding with you today, this time from Manchester city centre. Gorgeous couple Rebecca and Stephen’s October wedding day was intimate, informal and relaxed. They focused on fun, laughter and happiness – and their photos capture the atmosphere brilliantly. The styling is minimal, contemporary and beautiful, and the venue is The King Street Townhouse Hotel. Images are by lovely Sarah Millington Photography, based in Derbyshire.
The beautiful King Street Townhouse Hotel is situated in the historic conservation area of Manchester city centre. The hotel oozes luxury with gorgeous suites and stunning views of the city from both the rooms and the rooftop terrace where the reception was held. The hotel manages to be both cozy and opulent, striking the perfect balance between historic and contemporary details.
