Hey lovelies, how are you feeling after yesterday’s update? For me #stayathome still seems like the only possible way we can keep our loved ones safe – patience is the way to get there. Anyway… I have the loveliest wedding to share with you today. It’s a treat to be able to share these little reminders of ‘normal’ life: and Emma & Giles’s day had so many beautiful moments that make me smile. Their wedding style is classic and timeless, with some pretty personal touches (the little heather place settings are so cute!) and glorious images by our friends at Evolve Photography in Devon.

Stay safe, stay home. With love,

Emma & Giles' classic and timeless St Audries Park wedding, with Evolve Photography (1)

How did you choose your wedding photographer?

Evolve stood out to us when we performed website comparison and after seeing Mark’s portfolios that sealed the deal. We loved the way Evolve perfectly captured the emotion in each moment.


I was so excited when I saw all the lovely images from Madeleine and George’s beautiful wedding – they married on the cusp of spring, and used wild cherry blossom as a key floral theme with darker reds and woodland shades to style their day. Their Vietnamese-English fusion wedding brings a lovely splash of colour with all the fabulous reds, and the portraits of the bride and groom are stunning, as is St Audries Park. You’ll love it!

“We used pale pink cherry blossom, rich red vanda orchids for a slightly oriental feel and blousy peony like, pale pink ranunculus, along with blue green foliages such as eucalyptus, ice plant. I wanted the bouquet to be natural looking, seasonal and trailing. A hand tied bouquet of flowers with an undulating, flowing and natural outline.

All the flowers in the bride and civil ceremony bridesmaid bouquets, buttonholes, corsages for the tea ceremony bridesmaids and the decorations for the shrine tables, ceremony tables and centrepieces for the wedding breakfast tables used cherry blossom twigs which helped to give a winter into spring feel and the buttonholes and corsages picked up the ruby red, dusky pink colours of the morning ceremony. 


How has your Monday been? It’s been a productive day here at English Wedding Blog towers – and before I flop for the evening I simply have to share this Somerset wedding with you.

Simon Biffen Photography – a beautiful St Audries Park wedding blog

My lovely friend and sponsor Simon Biffen emailed me to share a sneak peek of Rebecca and Simon’s wedding from St Audries Park in Somerset. The image above is just a snippet of one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve seen this year.

Please, please go and look at the wedding on Simon’s blog – and watch out for the most incredible sunset wedding photograph. You’ll know which one I mean. 😉




Oh my… if this isn’t the perfect English Wedding then I’ll eat my top hat… I spotted Vicky and Chris’s wedding at St Audries Park on facebook on Monday (check out Somerset wedding photographer Simon Biffen’s facebook page).

I emailed Simon immediately to ask permission to share it with all of you… and then realised he’d already emailed me and offered. Lovely guy. And that’ll teach me to play on facebook before I’ve checked my emails, won’t it…

But do go and check out Simon’s St Audries Park weddings on his website. His work is beautiful – there’s everything from some of our very best wedding venues through to croquet and a lovely bulldog in the best man’s speech, a stunning bride, beautiful dress, delicious sunshine and an orangery wedding – quintessentially English. Beautiful, and recommended reading!
