Danielle and Andy’s wedding is the prettiest floral celebration I’ve seen – with fabulous peonies and the prettiest pink details, it’s wonderful inspiration for a classic summer celebration. I adore Danielle’s hair – her loose plait with tiny flowers is so, so beautiful – I hope you love this wedding as much as I do!

We decided on peony and roses in pink shades as we loved the romantic look and feel of them. We wanted the flowers to compliment and fit in with the venue, so had the floristry done through Narborough Hall Gardens, who grew and arranged all our flowers. The flowers were part of what made the day for us as they were so beautiful, with candelabra and teapot displays, amazing bouquets and a beautiful willow bower and flowers lining the aisle in shepherd crook jars.


Every time I feature a real wedding on the English Wedding Blog I ask the bride and groom to complete a little interview for me, and I ask about their theme, their suppliers and for any advice they’d like to give other couples. Last week I was reminded by one of the interviews that so many couples either wish they’d had a wedding film, or are so relieved they chose to book a videographer (even if it’s often at the last minute).


I have a little treat for you all this fine Sunday morning – one of the loveliest real weddings I’ve seen in a while, with touches of old Hollywood glamour and exquisite photography at  Norfolk’s magnificent Narborough Hall Gardens.

Laura is beautiful; a glamorous, graceful bride. Her perfect partner is Simon, every bit the movie hero to Laura’s romantic heroine. And they really do have it all: a fabulous wedding, superbly styled with love and laughter in every one of their beautiful images. My personal highlight? Laura’s advice to think back to other weddings and decide from there what’s most important; also, to keep an open mind when you go dress shopping. Believe it or not, this stunning Sassi Holford dress wasn’t the kind of style Laura had in mind at first!
