As today is my #lockdownbirthday I wanted to share something REALLY special – this stunning editorial by my lovely friend Jo Bradbury. Jo’s a super talented wedding photographer whose romantic editorial style I am head over heels in love with. And as I can’t escape to a French chateau for an idyllic birthday treat in real life, I’m loving that these images take me there virtually!

Have a wonderful day everyone,

Good morning, beautiful! I’m happy to say we have a week full of beautiful inspiration to share with you – and I’m so excited! We kick off with two wonderful elopement features today and tomorrow, then it’s two gorgeous real weddings and some fabulous ideas-led features to inspire your big day. So stick around – it’s going to be the loveliest week!

Today we’re all about modern elopements. This is most definitely a Thing: I LOVE elopement stories: one of my best friends eloped last week! I’d encourage anyone thinking about a romantic elopement to indulge in a little styling, and so today’s feature is for all of you brides who’d like to incorporate a clean and contemporary look with your elopement planning.

Hi lovelies! How is your wedding planning going and are you hooked on Pinterest yet? I’ve spent today falling down random Pinterest holes… it’s not been a mega productive one so far! And the photoshoot I’m about to share with you hasn’t helped at all… there are so many stunning ideas here. We’re talking late summer wedding style – for that brief period of time when the summer begins to fade and wisps of autumn stir the air. A delicate, pastel colour palette still works this late in the season, but tinged with plum tones and darker pinks the look becomes something truly special to work with the earliest days of autumn.

The English Wedding Blog exists to fire your imagination; to bring you the most beautiful wedding ideas and creative styling so you can incorporate unique special touches into your day. Exquisite design and breathtaking photography is a part of that, and today’s feature is more than a little special for me.

Working alongside the uniquely talented Verona Lain Photography, I crafted the calligraphy pieces in today’s feature by hand using divine papers from Paperchase and a traditional dip pen and ink. (Join me for a calligraphy workshop in Manchester next Friday if you’d like to learn to write like this!) They fit so perfectly with the little details: the wonderful ring from the London Victorian Ring Co. in its adorable box by La Petit Box. The silk ribbons by Kate Cullen are, as always, the prettiest touch.
