Dominique and Nick’s wedding is beautiful – gracefully styled with exquisite florals and elegant touches throughout. Their venue needs no introduction: Pendrell Hall is one of our faves here at English Wedding HQ. Dominique looks so lovely in her dress, although she admits to having her bridal ‘moment’ when she fell in love with her shoes! (which are gorgeous!!) The focus of this fab couple’s wedding is most certainly on family, and that’s what we love most of all. Involving your children in your wedding is so important, and will make the day so much more special and memorable… even if you do end up lying on the floor in your wedding dress having Thomas the Tank Engine driven across your hair (seriously, one of my fave pics! Don’t miss it at the end of this blog post!)
Sometimes the images of a day just speak for themselves… “We raced to the computer, watched the beautiful slideshow and spent the rest of the afternoon sobbing! Needless to say we were quite emotional about the whole thing. The next day we went through a vast quantity of tea whilst going back through them, and we’re still just as blown away.”

Today’s is a wonderfully personal wedding, and I love it all the more for being so special to everyone there. “We wanted to enhance the homely feel with personal items and everyday objects from our home. Both our families are hugely important to us, which is something we really wanted to celebrate through our wedding day, so we surrounded ourselves with tons of family photos in every room.”
Later today we’re heading for the wedding tent at Kirstie Allsopp’s second Handmade Fair – and we’re ridiculously excited about the whole thing! Before we go, I have a superb wedding to share with you all. You’ll LOVE this! We’re talking English sophistication, classy styling and elegant touches in a magnificent venue: Pendrell Hall. The bride is beautiful; the entire day just makes me feel happy.
Tim and Nerissa give a glowing review for their photographers Rob & Sarah Gillespie. It’s interesting to hear how a husband and wife photography team can bring so much to your wedding: for today’s bride and groom this was one of the (many!) reasons they chose Rob and Sarah as their wedding photographers. “Due to their vast wedding experience they were able to help and advise us as to what photos worked well and the timings for the day which really helped. We would highly recommend Rob and Sarah!”

Sunflowers are my favourite… nothing packs a punch quite like a wedding full of glorious sunflowers. Marianne and Sam’s wedding is like summer itself: warming and friendly, bright and cheerful, beautifully floral (of course!) and glorious with colour and sunshine. You’re going to LOVE today’s real wedding feature!
Sam and Marianne married at Pendrell Hall in Staffordshire, a superb venue which needs very little additional decor. Pendrell is one of England’s finest country house wedding venues, and I adore the atmosphere and charm of the house and gardens. Our bride and groom are both stunning: Marianne’s designer dress was made especially for her by the supremely talented Zeynep Kartal, while Sam wore Ted Baker.
Images are by my lovely friends Rob and Sarah Gillespie Photography, based in the Midlands. They get a glowing review from Marianne and Sam:
This is such a beautiful wedding – I love anything with a personal touch as I’m sure you know by now! Today’s stunning bride Katy and gorgeous groom Tom styled their country house wedding with a nod to their local history and delicate touches inspired by Staffordshire pottery.
Their wedding photographers, lovely Rob and Sarah Gillespie, have a wonderful eye for detail and captured the most precious moments and lovingly crafted details so well. Every image I’ve chosen to show you of Katy and Tom’s beautiful Staffordshire country house wedding will delight your pretty eyes, I’m sure!
Congratulations and the very warmest of thank yous to today’s very special bride and groom. This really is a wedding to remember and I’m sure it will inspire so many future couples. Watch out for the Wedgwood inspired wedding cake, the glorious flower displays and the fantastic table plan! Claire xxx
