Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Do keep an eye on our Instagram later today, as we’re going to investigate one of the Lake District’s most beautiful destination wedding venues – we’ll be at Storrs Hall from 5pm and I can’t wait to show you (virtually) around!! Before we go though, I have the most wonderful summery wedding to share with you. Esther and Sam’s day is so blissfully bright and happy, with stunning hanging foliage and a vibrant sunflower theme!  Let’s face it… all these autumn leaves are making it a tad chilly so let’s keep the summer vibe going for as long as we can on the blog! Images are by super talented English Wedding Directory member and Norfolk wedding photographer Duncan Kerridge Photography.

My bouquet had some sunflowers in which I loved! My husband keeps buying me sunflowers now…! The bouquets and button holes were all from our own gardens. The flowers in the church were bought by my mum then arranged by a family friend who lives in the village. My Granny dried rose petals from her garden for the confetti. They were all very ‘wild’ and colourful.

I love this wedding! The flowers are gorgeous, Laura is simply stunning – I love Andy’s bright blue suit as well – wow! Today’s gorgeous couple were married in June in Herefordshire. Their wedding was a classic English wedding day in the countryside, with lots of pretty touches. Images are by English Wedding Directory member Cassandra Lane Photography, who gets a glowing review from the happy couple!

We got married at Lemore Manor in Hertfordshire (http://www.lemoremanor.com/) – an amazing country house with an amazing staff. Margaret and her team made the day effortless for us – we commented several times that we were so pleased to have chosen Lemore for our venue. Not only was it beautiful, but we could relax and enjoy every moment without stopping to think about the running of the day – Margaret and team had it covered! Special shout out too for Micky, the chef. The food was amazing, we had so many comments on how lovely everything was. The venue and food are such a large part of the day, so we were so pleased with picking Lemore.

I love it when a photoshoot like this sends me tumbling head over heels with a flower I never knew could be so lush, opulent and beautiful. Today’s feature is glamorous, brooding and alternative – and breathtaking. Huge thanks to lovely Grace Hill for sharing her dream with us today!

When you have a beautiful married couple and 800 carnation stems, what do you do? You throw on a styled wedding at Captains Wood Barn, of course!

Within three months, I managed to put together my first styled shoot, a dark romantic authentic vintage wedding, with some absolutely fabulous vendors, all relatively local to the area, in Colchester, Essex.

We decided that there would be no gypsophila, or light and airy style with big boho flower crowns – something which seems to be so in fashion at present. Instead, in came 800 gorgeous, punchy carnations in all hues of reds, purples, magentas and creams, a beautiful lace gown, vintage and reclaimed furniture, crockery and even jewellery, a venue situated within acres of picturesque Essex countryside, a horse called Roxy and a very much in love couple.

Danielle and Chris’s wedding is beautiful: very much a quintessentially English celebration with handmade touches and the loveliest flowers you can imagine.

The gorgeous couple married at a local church in Warwickshire and had a reception in a marquee near the bride’s family home. I just love the little details, and how lucky were they to have such wonderful weather?!

Danielle is absolutely stunning: she’s such a pretty bride and I love how her eyes light up when she looks at Chris. They make such a wonderful couple. Danielle’s English Wedding Blog interview (scroll down!) is fantastic, and I wanted to share a snippet right from the start: “Don’t stress: what will be will be! Remember it is meant to be a happy day – you are marrying your love.”

Kelly and Phil’s springtime wedding has some of the loveliest touches I’ve seen – it’s a beautiful day with fabulous colours, and I know you’ll love it. Kelly and Phil chose a rustic, woodland style for their day.

The ceremony and reception were held at Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire, and in the wedding report at the end of today’s feature Kelly and Phil have shared links to some fabulous local suppliers.

Kelly looks absolutely amazing in her Ronald Joyce wedding gown, and I adore her bridal look – there’s an image towards the end of the feature with the newlyweds sat on a wall in the venue’s grounds where you can see the full length of the dress, and it’s so incredibly beautiful…
