Say the words “Winnie the Pooh – not Disney” and I’m on your side already 🙂 Liz and Jimmy’s wedding is creative and fun, with playful touches like everyone’s (original!) favourite bear – and I love it!

Today’s gorgeous couple married in Marple Bridge, with their reception at the fabulous Peruga restaurant. They incorporated the things they love: spring flowers and bright colours, and a nod to surfing… despite being 60 miles from the sea!

Liz’s advice that “DIY isn’t necessarily cheaper” is so very true, and while the crafty touches on their day are wonderful I’d urge brides and grooms to consider buying when time is short. Spend your weekends playing out and having fun instead! What I really do love is the ‘Expotition Beer’ which was especially made by a local craft brewery… to find out more read Liz and Jimmy’s English Wedding Blog interview at the end of today’s post!

I love a Pixies wedding… there will always be those ‘wow’ photographs – and for Steven and Sara there were so many. Today’s real wedding on the blog is a fun celebration full of brilliant ideas. Sara wears a Stella York gown, and Steven’s Next suit looks perfect… they’re a fab couple, as creative as they are gorgeous and I know you’ll adore their wedding!

My favourite idea from their wedding is the table plan, accompanied by polaroid pics of every guest with the instruction to “Find You”! – I love this! And there’s so much more… the jenga guest book, wedding signpost, the amazing flowers and glorious portraits taken in woodland at Abbeywood Estate.

Happy Christmas Monday everyone! (There will be no more boringly named days this side of January, by the way!) Sitting here surrounded by fairy lights and candles made me think of all the pretty visual inspiration you can find online when planning your wedding, and I was considering how amazing – and how different – Pinterest and Instagram can be. One thing they have in common: they’re both essential tools for 2015 couples when it comes to wedding planning.

Pinterest – for your ideal wedding

Pinterest is full of Wow! photography. Swoonworthy images, styled bridal shoots, wedding blogs and pro imagery by the very best. Product photography on Pinterest comes from the best Etsy sellers; repins are the creme de la creme. It’s all about photography which makes you wish you lived in Pinterest!

Morning everyone! We’re about to hit what I’m calling ‘proper Christmas’, and most of you will be thinking about non-wedding stuff for a while – so with that in mind I’m sharing some wonderfully bookmarkable posts from now on. Read now if you’re feeling weddingy, or save for later if you’re rushed off your feet with Christmas prep!

glamorous winter wedding hair

Scott and Daniella’s luxury Saddleworth Hotel wedding, with Pixies in the Cellar Photography

Today the English Wedding Blog is all about wedding hair. I’m no expert (think of me as an expert on anything carefree and windswept!) but I know someone who is! We all know winter can trash our hair on a daily basis so here are some brilliant tips to help you avoid the wild, snowy look on your wedding day.

Getting your hair right for a winter wedding isn’t as easy as it sounds. As well as having to deal with the wintry weather and central heating, you also need to think about the thicker, more luxurious fabrics you’re likely to wear and the design of your dress.

Today’s wedding is more than amazing – so many breathtaking images and a fabulous wedding report (with equal doses of advice, emotion and chuckles) from beautiful bride Laura.

There is a subtle map theme to the day, but overall the style is relaxed, intimate and LOTS of fun! Laura told me “It was like being in a candy-floss cloud…” and when I asked about her Naomi Neoh dress she said “I put her on (blush pink and softer than angel hair) and did not want to take her off… ever.

I’ve always loved The Belle Epoque as a wedding venue. In the early days of The English Wedding Blog I featured so many weddings there… but it’s been a little while and I’ve missed the place! It’s a quirky boutique venue with tons of character – perfectly fitting for Andrew and Laura.

Sarah and Nick were married at Haworth Art Gallery – a fabulous location with a romantic atmosphere which needed little extra styling. Their creative talents came out to play with their marquee reception, where they enlisted friends and family to help make everything from bunting to stationery.

Today’s gorgeous bride made her own cake and many of the decorations, and everything looks amazing! Their guests commented on how personal this DIY wedding was because of all the things they thought of and made.

I particularly love the French influence in elements of the wedding design: the typefaces used on the Order of the Day; the cork decorations and the cheese wedding cake. It’s a wonderfully romantic and creative day from beginning to end, and the photographs from Pixies in the Cellar capture every detail – it’s a treat to be able to share them with you today!

Today’s beautiful bride Katherine used lots of independent and creative suppliers to help with her wedding to gorgeous groom David. They’re the loveliest couple – and as well as the stunning images of their vintage country fair wedding they’ve shared a brilliant wedding report at the end of today’s feature. Don’t miss it!

Oh! Perhaps I should explain the title of today’s post before anyone worries about pixies in central Manchester’s civic buildings… it’s ok. This afternoon’s real wedding feature is by some of my favourite wedding photographers, the lovely Peter and Sara of Pixies in the Cellar. They published this amazing wedding on their blog a little while ago and I just had to show you! Emma and Chris’s wedding day covered two very distinct but equally gorgeous locations…

The ceremony was set in the magnificent (and pixie-free!*) Manchester Town Hall.

Afterwards guests travelled in a vintage bus to Hyde Bank Farm for a rustic wedding reception. The flowers and rustic styling are amazing and perfectly suit the gorgeous bride and groom whose sense of style and fun is awesome!

The details from Daniella and Scott’s Saddleworth Hotel wedding are just divine. As wedding coordinators they knew their venue inside out, and chose a sparkly winter wedding theme to make the most of the spectacular venue. Daniella’s dress is stunning – a Manuel Mota design with intricate beading.

Images of the day are by the fabulous Pixies in the Cellar wedding photography, whose magic touch brings the atmosphere and elegance of the wedding celebrations to life in their wedding photography. With congratulations to the gorgeous bride and groom, and thanks to the Pixies for sharing such an incredible wedding with us today. Enjoy!

This wedding is a treat – a magical celebration full of character and style, and the most amazing images I know you’ll love! It sounds as exciting as it looks, with thunder and lightning, hailstorms and finally sparklers to end the day as beautifully as it began. The bride and groom – one of the loveliest couples I’ve seen on the blog this year! – are gorgeous Mish and Jai. Images are by lovely Pixies in the Cellar.
Rowton Hall wedding photography (2)The Pixies – aka Peter and Sara – said the whole day had a great modern/vintage feel. Jai and his best man wore stylish great suits and funky shirts whilst Mish took the brave decision to be herself by wearing her glasses, which definitely looked amazing and complimented the whole look of the day.
Rowton Hall wedding photography (1)Jai had made a ‘signing bench’, a great idea, along with card/pressie box and signs for the road to Rowton Hall Hotel. Oh! And the best thing of all? A rice crispie wedding cake, perfectly topped with playmobil Mr & Mrs figures. Awesome. Read more…

Rachel and Jonathan’s wedding photos are guaranteed to make you smile! They’ll also give you plenty of ideas for styling your own day. I loved this wedding as soon as I saw it and I was so pleased Pixies in the Cellar submitted the images for an English Wedding Blog feature. I know you’ll love it too!

Wentbridge House wedding blog (1)For a Yorkshire wedding, there are certainly many more kilts than I’d usually expect… but I’m certainly not complaining! Everything about the day – kilts included – looks fantastic. Rachel’s look is adorable (she wears a Justin Alexander dress with pearl accessories) and the flowers are just gorgeous!

My lovely friends Peter and Sara from Pixies in the Cellar wedding photography get a glowing review in the wedding report at the end of the feature, which makes me very happy! I’ll leave you in their very capable hands with the gorgeous images from this fabulous Wentbridge House wedding. Enjoy!
