Mondays are always better when you stuff them full of the most incredible flowers, don’t you think? Today’s wedding inspiration comes from rural Berkshire, and features pretty, modern wedding styling from a super talented bunch of suppliers. I just adore Ruby & Grace‘s romantic blooms, and gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations from the fabulous Print For Love.

Lovely Sigi Kirkpatrick shared her stunning images with us, and told us a little about the concepts behind the beautiful ideas you’re about to see. Happy Monday, lovelies!

Quintessentially beautiful English wedding style with blush florals (37)

We were looking for intimate and unusual venues for bespoke wedding experiences. This Photo Shoot took place at this fabulous thatched cottage located in quintessential Berkshire village of Cookham Dean. This stunning property is available for exclusive private hire and is ideal venue for the Groom or Bridal party getting ready for the ceremony.

The shoot is aimed at those who want to create a more unique wedding experience. Couples can enjoy the venue for the full day with pre-wedding preparations in the serene surroundings as well as the event itself. The country cottage feel is perfect for those who are looking for a picture book English setting for their big day.

Regular readers will know stationery is close to my heart! As a calligrapher I’ve worked with some of the very best from Cutture to Print for Love – and one of the loveliest things about writing the English Wedding Blog is discovering new stationery designers and online wedding invitation boutiques.

I’m also a huge supporter of independent and local businesses, so I’m delighted to bring you my top picks of wedding stationery designers to watch (and buy from!) in 2018. In no particular order….

Emma Jo Wedding Stationery

Emma Jo is always in our lists of favourite stationers. We loved her delicate butterfly wedding invitations as featured in one of our favourite shoots of the year – and we’re excited to see Emma’s latest projects for 2018. Emma’s lovely – follow her instagram for tons of gorgeous paper inspiration and sneak peeks at latest projects!

I met lovely Tracy from The Flower House at a styled editorial shoot last September – and she’s one of the friendliest wedding creatives you could hope to meet. Tracy’s talents with flowers are a joy to witness:  her arrangements are thoughtful and beautifully arranged, with huge character and a fabulous contemporary style. They’re the focal point of today’s inspiration feature, which shows you how to style a bohemian wedding with rich tones for late summer. The images are by my lovely friend Jenny Heyworth Photography for Aspire Photography Training.

Styling has the trademark elegance of Emma from Tebbey & Co, who was assisted on this shoot by Catherine from White Feather & Co. The black candles and graceful brass candlesticks work perfectly with the floral arrangements – and don’t you just love that gorgeous mix of colours and textures? The little pink pointy flowers are Blushing Bride, which is very appropriate…
