Sunflowers are my favourite… nothing packs a punch quite like a wedding full of glorious sunflowers. Marianne and Sam’s wedding is like summer itself: warming and friendly, bright and cheerful, beautifully floral (of course!) and glorious with colour and sunshine. You’re going to LOVE today’s real wedding feature!

Pendrell Hall wedding blog in Staffordshire with Rob & Sarah Gillespie Photography (60)

Sam and Marianne married at Pendrell Hall in Staffordshire, a superb venue which needs very little additional decor. Pendrell is one of England’s finest country house wedding venues, and I adore the atmosphere and charm of the house and gardens. Our bride and groom are both stunning: Marianne’s designer dress was made especially for her by the supremely talented Zeynep Kartal, while Sam wore Ted Baker.

So it’s with the biggest smile ever that I am introducing them as my newest English Wedding Blog sponsors today. Rob & Sarah Gillespie will be sharing more and more weddings with us over the next year, and we’ll get to know them a little better with some advice articles and other features too. Oh! And did I mention my new super chic blog header? I simply had to choose this gorgeous pic for the top of the blog as soon as I saw it.

The day has finally arrived… I’m sooo excited to be teaching my first Manchester calligraphy workshop today – we kick off in an hour or so. Eeek!! But of course, lovely blog readers, I still have a fabulous wedding to share with you today 🙂

Sophisticated DIY wedding blog at Coombe Abbey with Rob & Sarah Gillespie Photography (46)

Laura and Tom achieved something pretty rare – they styled an incredibly sophisticated and elegant wedding in a magnificent historical venue, and they made all the finer details by hand. I’m more than impressed: this isn’t as easy as you might think: to create handmade stationery and decor – even the vases – by hand, AND do it so well they fit perfectly in a venue like this… it’s pretty special!

Laura’s absolutely stunning and Tom’s smile lights up the pages of the English Wedding Blog today – they make the most gorgeous couple, and I’m really proud to be sharing their wedding with you today. They married at Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire, and found most of their wedding suppliers online.

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.”

So let’s introduce gorgeous bride and groom Amy and Jamie. First of all, I love their rhyming names 🙂 and second of all I adore everything about their whimsical woodland wedding. You will too, I know! There are rustic flowers with exciting textures; fabulous backdrops for stunning portraits, magical romantic moments and let’s not forget Amy and Jamie’s adorable dog Mae in her wedding finery… how cute?!

From the glorious venue to the comfy, cool footwear and dress-changing bridesmaids, this is a wedding whose quirks are subtle and fun. Ally and Sarah had a relaxed day at Menzies Welcombe Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon and I know you’ll love hearing about their wedding.

There wasn’t a theme for the day, but what stands out to me is that this is a no-fuss, no-fluff sort of wedding. It’s elegant and personal with a focus on just a few pretty key details: the flowers, the location, and our gorgeous bride and groom.

As a little girl I used to try and make my own dried flower bouquets… so I was delighted to see Paula’s bouquet from today’s wonderfully country wedding: it really is beautifully different. In fact today’s wedding is one of those I love for every little detail which comes together to make a creative, exciting and unique overall style for a magical day.

Sean and Paula chose their wedding venue for its windmill. Paula’s dress was chosen at the very last minute… and wow, it must have been fate because it’s beautiful!

The rustic stationery and DIY touches are what make today’s wedding look so unique – and the photographs are out of this world – I really struggled to cut the images down to a reasonable number to show you… because between the venue, the gorgeous bride and groom and the fabulous photographer, they make for some of the best wedding photos I’ve seen and shared. A favourite, definitely!

Rachel and Matthew’s Sherbourne Park wedding is a glorious dose of summer with adorable puppies, fabulous flowers and delicate DIY detailing. It’s everything I love about English weddings: the sun shines, the smiles are everlasting, the venue is impressive and everyone is relaxed and having the time of their lives.

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…

More than a few times as I flicked through the images for today’s real wedding blog feature I gasped, chuckled or did my best little attempt at a blogger squeal – because it’s just so fantastic! There’s everything: gorgeous couple, beautiful dress, large orange octopus… Oh and there are bubbles, vintage maps, a button bouquet with a librarian badge… too much to mention before I show you the fabulous images!

Emma and Richard are simply brilliant. Emma’s smile never fades – she’s such a beautiful bride and wears “the first and only dress I tried on”. I love her style and everything about her.

Hello! Are there any other book lovers out there this morning? There was a very sharp intake of breath here when I first saw where beautiful bride Hannah married her husband Nick, and fellow bookworms will be as enchanted by this as I was! Yes – it’s a library wedding. Today’s real wedding comes from the Memorial Library at Malvern College. Gorgeous, inspiring and a bit of a dream come true, I have to admit!

Malvern library wedding Rob and Sarah Gillespie (2)

I owe huge thanks to my lovely friends and wedding photographers Rob and Sarah Gillespie, who submitted this wedding for the blog. I do hope you love it as much as I do! But my heart is bursting even more with gratitude to Hannah and Nick for sharing their day with us all. They’ve injected such personality into their wedding day from start to finish I just wish I could have been there! Pretty much my dream wedding… so enjoy! Claire xxx
