Morning lovelies! How was your weekend? We’re all Christmassed-up at English Wedding HQ and ready to party from right now!!! But first… of course we have some fabulous weddings and ideas to share with you this week. We’re starting with gorgeous bride and groom Rosie and Dom, who were married in September at The Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.

Photographer Lee Maxwell got in touch – shooting Rosie and Dom’s wedding made him the first ever wedding photographer at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum to capture a wedding ceremony. The wedding reception was at Double Locks – a wonderful venue for a relaxed wedding reception. The spirit of this gorgeous wedding really comes across in the photos, which I hope you’ll love as much as I do!

We made all our own decorations and it was worth it, but it required lots of planning and preparation and we still ended up spending a bit on things we didn’t need in the end. Although we’re not particularly creative people and we gave ourselves lots to do, it was manageable because we knew our limits and didn’t try anything too ambitious. But until we’d actually finished I was definitely worried it wouldn’t look right!

Good morning beautiful! Gin lovers – this one’s for you. (And who doesn’t, at lunchtime on a Saturday, right?!)  An elegantly styled, beautifully photographed, gin-themed wedding. If only we’d thought of that… gin connoisseurs Victoria and Adam were married in the Devonshire village of Ashton. They had bottles hanging over the reception venue’s entrance, sloe gin favours, and the tables were named after different gins. The amazing table plan, incorporating the bottles, was put together by Adam’s step Dad, who also made the church signs. The church was only a short walk from the drinks reception at The Great Barn, allowing a fiddler led procession from the ceremony to the drinks reception! The Great Barn has a stunning collection of buildings all set in beautiful grounds and gardens.

The barn is such a beautiful venue, we just added some decoration with the flowers and the gin theme. Making the gin wedding favours and the table plan put our stamp on the day. We planned our wedding in 8 months – I didn’t realise when we embarked on it what a challenge that would be. Having said that, wedding planning will take as long as you give it and having to be efficient and make decisions quickly made the planning stage more enjoyable for us!

Happy Friday!!

This is Lucy & Alex’s glorious Dorset wedding. It’s absolutely sublime!

The styling touches and details are deliciously subtle and mix soft pastels for a chic country theme. Lucy and Alex are both so, so gorgeous – and the loveliest thing is their choice of wedding location.
