I’m thinking dreamy escapism as we head for the weekend… is that okay with you lovelies? Let’s wish ourselves away from our tiers and our troubles for just a moment and imagine ourselves in the French hills. Although of course – this is English Wedding and our French vibes come all the way from the Cotswolds! Our lovely friend Hannah McClune has shared her beautiful images from a styled editorial shoot at Manor by the Lake. With a team of fabulous suppliers, this really is a dream wedding vibe and I hope you adore dreaming yourselves down those French country lanes with me!

Today we’re sharing the loveliest peony-filled wedding style inspiration from a super talented bunch of creative suppliers in Essex. The venue is Old Brook Barn – a beautifully restored 17th century barn surrounded by meadows in the Essex countryside. The look is light and feminine, with gold accents and special touches to give a luxurious look to a summer wedding. The day was styled by lovely wedding planner Hayley Jayne and captured beautifully by Terri & Lori. Read on for a full supplier list. Oh, and isn’t this little guy the cutest?!

Timeless Elegance - a classic pink wedding editorial from Old Brook Barn (20)

Lovely Hayley Jayne explains how she created the beautiful look for the photoshoot:

Working with a classic colour palette of soft pink and accents of luxury gold tones, I wanted to offer inspiration to couples planning a romantic & refined wedding day.

Using an abundance of peonies in the palest shade of pink and additional styling elements such as hand dyed silk ribbon, cut glass vessels, tapered candles and exquisite handmade cotton rag table stationery. Which, when combined create the perfect backdrop for an elegant & timeless wedding day.

No distractions, just pure wedding escapism with some fabulous, creative, hugely talented wedding suppliers. This inspiration shoot is BURSTING with stunning florals, has the cutest couple (and pooch), divine stationery and sumptuous styling by lovely Sophie at Idyllic Days.

We Found Love! Natural, modern wedding inspiration from The Ferry House with images by Kerry Ann Duffy (7)

Our inspiration was aimed at the couple who favour a natural yet modern romantic bridal style. Giving a modern take on an autumnal wedding colour palette and considered detail.

Perfect for the couple who like a creative challenge, are looking for styling tips and who love dogs – yes, there’s a Dog!
Kerry Ann Duffy’s photography style is timeless and romantic. The swoon worthy light filled images are worthy of a sit down with a cuppa to take in all the pretty.

Take a little time today to breathe, to relax and to escape from reality with this tranquil and beautiful wedding editorial from Beth, wedding planner at Miss Carlysle & Co. I’ve fallen head over heels in love with the light, the florals, the styling and atmosphere of this enchanting set of images, and I just know you will too. The venue is Sissons Barn, the photographer is Nikki’s Moments. The talented team of Cambridgeshire wedding suppliers created a fairy tale of soft tones, simplicity and a perfect love story. I’ll hand over to Beth to tell you more.

With love,

A fairytale of soft tones, for a beautiful wedding look from Sissons Barn (1)

We decided on a simple, elegant styled shoot which started from a mood board into the creation that came together from the suppliers, with the use of a grey and white theme, through the stationery to the flowers. Traditional but with our very own twist, to inspire a modern couple.

It was a true love story for the modern couple Chelsea and Kristian, with romance in the air, full of laughter and love. From the ceremony through to the wedding breakfast.

This. This is one of the loveliest shoots I’ve seen in my EXACTLY 10 years of being a wedding blogger. (Because yes, I’ve just realised English Wedding was born on November 16th, 2009 and it’s our birthday week!) It seems the perfect opportunity to share something very special with you all.

The location is The Railway Barn at New Hall Vineyards. The concepts and styling are by lovely Hayley Jayne Weddings & Events, and images were captured so beautifully by Terri and Lori. I adore Jess’s dress – a stunning design from the inimitable St Patrick brand, loaned from Turner & Pennell in Rayleigh.

Petal and Wild‘s flowers make this shoot exceptional. The breathtaking structures, the cool and breezy palette, the blooms nestled amongst the balloons… and oh, while we’re on THAT subject will you just look at this beauty?! It’s by the spectacularly creative Fable & Moon. (You’re going to want to check out Sophie’s insta! – she’s all kinds of amazing!)

I have to admit, I’m more familiar with the Upside Down than the world of Downton (hey, Stranger Things fans!) but in a wedding context it’s easy to fall head over heels in love with the whole period aesthetic. Today’s shoot is a Downton Abbey inspired masterpiece, and Mount Ephraim is a dream venue: sweeping staircase, black and white floors, period details in full effect – the works! There’s something ever so real about this wedding style feature, as the day runs from beginning to end with the grooms’ preparations, ceremony, portraits, reception and even fireworks! I really love how authentic it all feels – and it’s down to a fantastic team of stylists alongside the awesome Matilda Delves Photography, who captured the day on camera. I hope you love it as much as I do!

The inspiration behind this shoot is showcasing two grooms in a classical and elegant way with a modern twist with a Downton Abbey influence. Real-life couple Maximilian and Elie really bring the romantic feel to life. The chemistry between the two grooms was effortless and heartfelt which was captured in the photos.

Happy weekend, my lovelies! I’m busy teaching a modern calligraphy workshop at the fabulous Little Paper Shop in Nantwich, Cheshire today (head over to my insta @bymoonandtide for behind the scenes pics!) but of course I saved up something wonderful to share on English Wedding while I’m there! Senel from Bride and Belle and lovely Eva Tarnok used the history of Chiswick House as a basis of the inspiration for this wonderfully feminine and romantic, classic bridal editorial.

The images tell the love story of Elisabeth, an English lady, and her Italian suitor. Using a colour palette of soft pinks and neutral tones paired with gold details reflects the romantic and classical feel of this shoot, combined with a Fine Art aesthetic. The graceful, romantic and feminine images celebrate the historical nature of the building, which is transformed into a stunning wedding venue with lots of beautifully styled details.

Oh my word I LOVE this shoot!!! The colours, the elegance and the light through the windows… every detail is spot on, it’s absolutely beautiful. I’ve been saving it up, because it’s lovely to have something to inspire all of our weekends… and this has everything from a La Sposa gown (oh, that lace!) and velvet ribbons, insanely beautiful florals and a moody, luxe, dreamy colour palette.

The venue is Shropshire’s stunning Davenport House. The inspiration was – and I LOVE this – Vanity Fair at the Oscars. How’s that for a wedding theme?! Elegant glamour inspired wedding styled shoot with blacks, dark greys, deep greens and pops of colour. Images are by lovely Shropshire wedding photographer Laura May Photography.

Taking inspiration from the iconic Condé Nast publication Vanity Fair, a sense of drama and old Hollywood glamour was created with this shoot. The team wanted to create something more elevated and elegant for such a fantastic venue, with deep blues, crimsons and golds taking centre stage with the table décor.

Hey everyone! Today we have a really contemporary and romantic wedding look to share with you – with beautiful images from Kingsdown Rectory in Kent.

This organic, pared back shoot was planned and styled by lovely Laura Jayne at Your Wedding, Your Way and photographed by Kate Hennessy Photography. It’s the most glorious inspiration for couples planning a relaxed and elegant wedding in a homely setting where they have freedom to create their own style. “With the outdoor elements, we wanted to portray the flexibility and scope of the space. The tablescape was designed to demonstrate how to mix the rustic look with elegant details to create a neutral, considered setting with natural elements. The shoot team consisted of mainly Kent based suppliers in this brand new, recently launched venue. Our gorgeous models’ smiles shone throughout the day and have created some stunning images, we hope you agree!

I thought we all deserved a little treat this Sunday afternoon, so gather round and snuggle up for an extra special dose of wedding lovely. Our fabulous friend Amanda Karen Photography sent in this beauty of a shoot and I’ve fallen for it hook, line and sinker. The styling is exquisite; the colour palette is fabulous. This is a shoot in two halves: the copper dress takes my breath away and I’d love to see more brides wearing such a bold statement dress… but if that’s not for you then the bridal jumpsuit is unique, different and 100% on trend for 2019! Both outfits are by the always fabulous Charlie Brear.

Good morning, beautiful! Today we’re sharing a key look for 2019 weddings – one that can be recreated easily once you ‘get’ the styling concepts – and one I know will make 2019 a year of weddings to remember. It’s all about understated elegance with careful attention to a few quality details. For me this is a look of almost effortless wedding style – combining simple, minimal details with the smallest touches of real luxury and softness. The florals are absolutely key: delicate and feminine blooms in a soft palette of ivory, nude, blush and soft peach with pops of glorious coral. Texture comes from hare’s tail grasses and striking white anthuriums, while white lilac and butterfly ranunculus bring softness to the look. The colours are what I love most about today’s floral design: those carefully arranged coral blooms really make the arrangements look contemporary and luxurious, don’t you think?
