I do love a lazy Sunday. I even love the rain – it means I can do a bare minimum of cleaning then spend the day snuggling with my man and a book. And a hot chocolate… because y’know, winter! And the cherry on my snuggly little Sunday-cake is a beautiful wedding editorial… that luxury of scrolling through insta, finding a beautiful blog post and diving right in, absorbing all the loveliness and dreaming of a future wedding day. That’s my perfect Sunday right there, and I’m SO HAPPY to be sharing this with you lovelies today. Huge thank yous to our fabulous English Wedding members Jennifer Jane Photography and Keyleigh Marie Weddings for sharing with us. Aren’t they amazing?! Full supplier list (ALL EWB favourites!) below…
This year on English Wedding we’ve been lucky enough to explore some more of England’s finest wedding venues in person, by kind invitation of the owners. I’ve most recently stayed at The Wordsworth Hotel and Martin Dabek (a brilliant Bristol wedding photographer and member of English Wedding) was invited to review Berwick Lodge at the beginning of the year. This time, we were asked to review the Orchardleigh Estate, which is just 10 miles from Bath – and lucky Martin was ideally situated to go and find out all about this amazing wedding venue.
Beautiful bride Siobhan and gorgeous groom Ross got married in the springtime, and were blessed with a beautifully sunny day. I fell in love with Siobhan’s bouquet of ranunculus, freesia and eucalyptus with tiny narcissus and eucalyptus – it’s perfect for springtime and every bit as gorgeous as a summer bouquet.
Orchardleigh House is a stunning venue in North Somerset with fabulous, lavish rooms, the perfect venue for a romantic English wedding. Driving into the estate and along the winding driveway to the main house there’s a real wow moment that gives you a feeling of excited anticipation.
Sam and Bryony’s Somerset wedding is divine: beautifully but simply and tastefully styled so it will always look timeless and magical. There are secrets to the styling and design which reading the English Wedding Blog interview will help to answer: Bryony shares her best tips on finding suppliers, budgeting and enjoying every second of your day. She’s fabulous…
I love how Bryony talks about “a feeling all day long that you wish you could put in a bottle and keep“! I can only imagine how amazing this day was… and I can tell from the images that every second was cherished. Truly a day to remember forever!
I love a wedding which surprises me… and today’s was pretty amazing in that respect! The look of the day is classic and elegant, but there’s an occasional treat which will make you smile – like the way Dave made his entrance on a segway. One of my favourite images from Jo and Dave’s wedding is the groom’s expression as he realises he’ll be 1) learning to ride one and 2) rocking up on it to the wedding at Orchardleigh House. No pressure then!
