Happy Sunday lovelies! We’re heading up to the Lakes today to catch up with family, and hoping for a dry day with views! I hope you’ve got lovely Sunday plans too 🙂
I thought I’d share today’s beautiful wedding on the blog a little earlier than normal (because we all have Sunday things to do, don’t we?!) Emma and Stefan’s day is oh so elegant, with classic styling touches and plenty of summer sunshine. Emma looks stunning in a Mark Lesley dress, perfect for Prestwold Hall‘s sophisticated and timeless surroundings.

Prestwold is a beautiful country house and did not need much decoration. We stuck to decorating the tables for the wedding breakfast and a few things around the bar. The flowers were arranged by Lynn at Scent with Love. We all had a bouquet of peach Vuvuzela Roses, Memory lane Roses and gypsophila, posy style with a few diamantes and tied with satin ribbon.

I can’t let go of summer… would you care to join me for another sunny day? We’re talking daisies and buttercups, country flowers and exquisite sunshine for one of the loveliest weddings of the year on the English Wedding Blog today. Thom and Alicia are a star couple, whose personalities made their wedding simply perfect.

The gorgeous bride and groom were married in South Gloucestershire, with a church ceremony and marquee reception in the countryside – and they styled their day to fit the reception with tons of colourful flowers looking as though they’d come straight from an English country garden…

Images are by Joanna Bongard Photography, who Thom and Alicia recommend with some really wonderful words: “The photos were just as we’d imagined but better… So fresh and fun; they reflect every emotion shared, depicting our perfect day that we can look back on in years to come and remember it just like yesterday. She is a great talent.”

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 🙂

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.

They describe their summer wedding as a vintage garden party, and it’s that and so much more: with a charming sense of grace and style and a bouquet I just adore. There are paper poms everywhere, the cake is exquisite, and oh did I forget to mention the carousel?!
