Hello! Did anyone see June coming?! No? Me neither… I’m still on May! But it’s officially summer and wedding season is in full swing – so let’s begin the week with one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen: Roseanne and Darren at Cripps Barn.

The gorgeous couple didn’t focus on a colour scheme but as their plans developed they chose details in soft blues and greens. The wedding stands out for the spectacular floral decorations – Roseanne’s bouquet is amazing and the ceremony flowers are fabulous.

Jayne and Glen’s wedding is full of English country charm, and its setting in the impressive tithe barn at Browsholme Hall in Lancashire is wonderful. The gorgeous couple poured their hearts and souls into crafting a beautifully homespun theme with stamps, kraft cards and hessian string – and the overall effect is fantastic.

The wedding flowers are a highlight – with help from a local farm selling buckets of flowers for DIY brides, Jayne’s friend Alison styled the beautiful bridal and bridesmaid bouquets to perfectly fit the style of their day.

I love Kate and Andrew’s best thing about being married (from my questionnaire at the end of the blog) – they say it’s “having each other’s families“! How lovely is that?!! Their wedding report is as wonderful as the images of their day, the spectacular location of King’s College London, their creative choice of wedding readings… this is all a very special wedding blog and one I’m proud to feature!

Kings College London wedding blog (1)Kings College London wedding blog (2)Today’s gorgeous, creative and individual couple had a lovely wedding day with a focus on love and family. They share some fab ideas in their wedding report at the end of the feature, so do grab a cuppa and have a good read – especially all you literature lovers and London brides and grooms!

How many of you are getting married this spring? The weeks seem to be flying by, and with the sunny days we’ve been having it almost feels like April is here already… so I thought it’d be a perfect day to share Fiona and Matthew’s wonderful April wedding blog with you. The gorgeous couple were married in Richmond, Surrey, and their Pembroke Lodge wedding is beautifully styled for springtime.

I adore Fiona’s lace dress (the back is just so beautiful, isn’t it… she’s such a stunning bride!) and the soft white and blue flowers are the perfect special touch for their day. Everything is captured beautifully by lovely Surrey wedding photographer Karen Flower – do visit her website (oh! and read the review Fiona and Matthew give her in their wedding report at the end of the blog – she comes very highly recommended indeed!) www.karenflowerphotography.com

Some weddings instantly grab me as a wedding blogger, and today’s is one of them. Here’s a little secret: it’s not the details which make a ‘bloggable wedding’. Neither is it the bride and groom, or the dress, or the photography, or the venue. It’s everything: all of these matter when I’m looking for a wedding to blog, and the magical ingredient is the atmosphere they create when combined together… it’s like the alchemy of love in weddings!

So when styling and planning your wedding, focus on creating a day you’ll love from beginning to end. Follow today’s gorgeous couple’s example: Miranda and Ronan had a small wedding at Clissold House and their family helped with some of the finer details of the day. Miranda’s dress is exquisite – one of the loveliest I’ve seen! – but their smiles and the atmosphere which shines through the images of their day are what make this wedding so special.

Oh dear!!! There are so many gorgeous things to show you in today’s real English wedding I think I might break my own blog. Oops! But Becky and Greg had the loveliest day with such wonderful personal touches I just have to show you everything! From the polka dot table plan to the quirky ice cream seller, the chalkboard sign, Becky’s own designer wedding cake, the union jack details and luscious hydrangeas everywhere… I can almost smell the summer breeze!

Becky looks stunning in her Sassi Holford wedding dress, which she bought second-hand. She told me the dress was advertised online, “and I just fell in love with it instantly.  It would be a shame for such a beautiful dress to only be worn once and I am so glad that the dress could continue its journey.” What a great way to find a wedding dress! And what an awesome bride – Becky, you rock!

Good morning everyone, I hope you’re all safe and my heart goes out to those of you affected by flooding today. We had some of the worst gales here yesterday, but it’s much calmer now here on the west coast. Now – if you haven’t seen me sneak peeking this wedding on the English Wedding facebook page, where’ve you been?! I’ve struggled to hold back on sharing all the beautiful images and ideas with you.

Clare and Ian are just incredible. Their wedding is breathtaking! The rustic styling is beautiful and colourful, with gorgeous DIY touches throughout. Clare looks stunning and Ian and all the guys look great in sand coloured suits – perfect for the rustic theme. There are so many gorgeous things to watch out for, I think you should grab a cuppa and at least one biscuit and settle down to enjoy this one properly.

2013 has been a big year for theatre and cinema weddings, usually with an art deco or vintage style. Hannah and Steve’s wedding uses Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery as an incredibly beautiful backdrop for their ceremony. Their reception was at the amazing contemporary theatre, The Crucible. Choosing a venue like this will pretty much define your wedding style. There’s no room for vintage fluff, instead today’s beautiful bride and gorgeous groom used trees, simple flower arrangements and elegant lines to style their wedding.

Steve designed all of their wedding stationery, and music choices for the ceremony included The XX, Bon Iver and a reading from Pulp’s “Something Changed” – because naturally this wedding had a subtle Sheffield theme.

It’s just divine – I know you’ll love this wedding blog as much as I do. Images are by wonderful Mark from Tierney Photography, and Hannah and Steve have shared their wedding report with us all at the end of the page. Huge congratulations to a stunning and stylish bride and groom, and thank you so much for sharing your wedding day on the blog!
