Hey lovely! How’s your weekend going so far? I’m so excited to be sharing such a pretty celebration with you today – beautiful Sophie and gorgeous hubby Stephen were married at Eversholt Hall in October and chose a dream team of East of England wedding suppliers for their wedding day including Matt Bishop Photography and lovely Lorraine from Wild Orchid Floral Design. The look is wonderfully romantic and the images are light and fresh and oh-so-beautiful.

Our florist was Wild Orchid, based in Leighton Buzzard. Lorraine was amazing and created some stunning displays. The flowers were full of blush, ivory and amnesia roses, which matched perfectly with my bridesmaid dresses.

My bouquet was stunning, Lorraine created an antique styled bridal bouquet filled with amnesia, mini rose (mimi eden), large headed David Austin roses and sweet avalanche and soft foliage of eucalyptus.
We had tall, gold hollow stands for the centre piece tables, which were full with the flowers that were in my bouquet and included trailing ivy and eucalyptus. The top table had a stunning end to end floral runner, filled with all the bridal flowers throughout as well as all foliage and hidden tealight holders to be super romantic. One of my favourite displays were the floral hoops that were hanging on the wall behind the top table, this made a great backdrop.

I love the playfully elegant style of their day: the wonderful flowers and pretty styling touches make this Nonsuch Mansion wedding a favourite for me. Luke is such a handsome groom and Katy is so incredibly beautiful, isn’t she?

Hey everyone! Would you like to help me with a discussion coming up on the English Wedding Blog soon? I’m asking for your thoughts on exclusivity… brides, suppliers, other wedding bloggers I would love to hear from you all!

Neoclassical wedding styled shoot by Petra Opperman with Matthew Bishop Photography (4)

My question: should wedding blogs ask for exclusivity for styled shoots and real weddings? How long for?

Exclusivity for wedding blogs

Every wedding blogger wants their blog to stand out from the crowd, and being able to publish gorgeous shoots before anyone else is key to that. If two blogs published the same shoot within a week it wouldn’t look so good…

Features across more blogs for wedding suppliers

I’m a calligrapher as well as a wedding blogger, and I’m often asked to write place names and bespoke stationery for styled wedding shoots. I love seeing those shoots featured as widely as they possibly can be… the more blogs feature a shoot, the better the publicity for every supplier involved.

Dearest lovely blog reader… do I have a treat in store for you this afternoon! Courtesy of Petra Opperman Weddings and a cast of the very best in wedding design, this exclusive ‘Get the Look’ feature comes hot on the heels of this morning’s styled bridal shoot from the Hurlingham Club.

Choose high tiers and elegant icing for your neoclassical wedding cake

Style your wedding cake with straight lines, architectural details and alabaster colours… this beautiful white tiered wedding cake brings to mind the architecture of Greece and Rome with high tiers and softest white icing. Details are kept to a minimum with elegant clusters of the thinnest sugarpaste flowers. By Krishanthi – www.cakesbykrishanthi.co.uk

Choose a venue with wow factor to impress your guests

The Hurlingham Club has a magnificent arched ceiling your guests will love – it’s a blank canvas with plenty of natural daylight for wedding photography – and needs little decor to create the most luxurious wedding reception space for your luxury celebration.

Petra’s exquisite taste often combines classical music with astonishingly beautiful design and styling: I know when Petra curates a styled shoot it will be divine. Today is no exception, and I have a luxurious styled shoot in two parts to share with you on the English Wedding Blog (with an exclusive “Get the Look” feature full of details and design this afternoon at 3!)

Happy Thursday everyone! Lots to share today – I stumbled across a lovely article from It’s Your Wedding Dance in response to my Glastonbury blog, which has made me smile today. But the main event is a behind the scenes look at Victorian wedding style inspiration, with Petra Opperman and Storybook Films. The film brings yesterday’s shoot to life, as tables are set and flowers arranged, make up done and food served… here you’ll see every tiny detail of the wedding dress and oh! the wedding cake – a real show stopper.

Petra Opperman has written the loveliest of introductions to accompany the wedding style film, and I’ve included some new images from Matthew Bishop Photography for you as well – I have more up my sleeve… and they’re hard to resist!

Have you heard of floriography? No? Along with tablescapes and ombre you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a new wedding buzz word, but it comes from the Victorians – whose style we’re fast falling in love with for 2014 and 2015 weddings. Today I have the most amazing shoot to share with you – full of luxurious style ideas you can use to create your own elegant Victorian wedding style.

The beauty of this shoot is second to none. I adore wedding styling shoots as they can be such a rich source of ideas for brides and grooms – and Petra Opperman is one of the most amazing stylists in the country. Along with photographer Matthew Bishop and a host of outstanding suppliers, Petra has created another stunning wedding style to share with you today – and I absolutely love it!

Michaela and David’s wedding is about as British as British could be – their chic London theme is fabulous and their styling is beautifully elegant. Michaela told me they wanted to incorporate London into their wedding without turning it into a gimmick, and they did it perfectly. The images by English Wedding Blog’s new friend Matthew Bishop Photography are just wonderful and I know you’ll adore this wedding from the start!

With a graceful and sleek Suzanne Neville gown, lots of lovely gypsophila, a big red bus and ‘proper’ postbox, candelabras and a fabulous naked cake, I have to say weddings rarely get better than this! Congratulations and a massive thank you to beautiful bride Michaela and super stylish groom David for sharing their day and writing a brilliant wedding report for us today.
