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?
Good morning, beautiful. I’m feeling very tranquil right now, having scrolled through all of the wonderful images from today’s feature on English Wedding. This is pure beauty, sophisticated and timeless wedding style for you to fall in love with, take away and turn into your own. The dresses by Kate Edmondson Bridal are divine; the bouquet just fabulous, and those Little Fancies biscuits and cookies the sweetest thing to hit my blogging screen this year! This shoot was styled and planned by Cynthia Adipue from Kimberley Rose Designs, who is here to tell you more. All images are by lovely Hannah Larkin Photography.
Did you have an amazing weekend? I’ve been teaching calligraphy and general pottering around whenever the sun peeped out… And this week I have a stack of wedding invitations and place names to write, so it’s going to be pretty busy at English Wedding HQ. Of course we also have gorgeous wedding pretty to share with you, starting with this stunner of an editorial shoot sent in by Emily Andrew Events. You may have seen a sneak preview of this one in the English Wedding Bible (and if you haven’t, do grab your FREE copy here!) – today we’re delving into all the details of this breathtaking shoot at an intriguing Norfolk wedding venue.
Today’s feature is a little different – and an absolute must-read, we think! It’s already one of our faves here at English Wedding HQ and I hope you love it too! Lovely Alexandra from Alexandra Rose Weddings wrote it for us, working alongside a fabulous creative team with images captured beautifully by Bethany and James who specialise in Fine Art photography and film making. Alexandra’s floral styling is just wonderful – she applies an imaginative way of thinking when working with garden grown flowers, allowing the shape of the flowers themselves to dictate the overall design. Her style is beautifully naturalistic and sculptural too.
Ah, Monday – would you allow me to wear my pyjamas just a little longer while I blog? It’s been a busy old weekend here at English Wedding HQ and I’m just a little sleepy… and yes, I know it’s nearly lunchtime! How was your weekend? Anyways, I have the loveliest wedding style ideas for you today – from my lovely friend Sheryl at Oobaloos Photography in Cheltenham. Sheryl stepped in at the last minute to capture this beautiful photoshoot from Lords of the Manor Hotel, a former 17th century rectory situated in the heart of the idyllic Cotswolds countryside. I was thrilled when she asked me if I’d send one of the new invitation suites we’re now selling in the English Wedding Shop (go see!) and I’m just over the moon to be sharing all of these lovely images today.
