We’ve featured some incredible bouquets on English Wedding in recent weeks – and with Valentine’s Day this weekend it inspired me to put a little collection together to inspire you! I’ve had a little whizz through our recent archives and found these stunning wedding flower ideas. There’s something for everyone – real flowers for every season, in every colour you can dream of. Some of our favourite bouquets are wild and flowing; others neat and pretty. There are bouquets with oodles of foliage; and some with simple blooms and statement flowers. And we’ve picked (pun intentional!) examples from florists around the UK to share with you today. I hope you fall in love with some of these – do Pin away if your Pinterest boards are ready for some floral inspiration!
Today’s gorgeous couple married in the summer of 2020, and with covid restrictions limiting their choices they still had the most amazing day – it’s all beautiful. Jess found her dress at Monsoon and fell in love with it; Justin bought his suit online and loved it too – they both look fabulous. This lovely pair kept an eye on sustainability with their wedding: hiring items rather than buying, choosing candle favours from a maker who donates a % of profits to bee conservation, and donating part of their gift money to a local charity kitchen.
This is the kind of wedding photography that will blow your mind. As Leanne and Mickey told me, as soon as they saw Robin Goodlad’s images they knew they’d found their wedding photographer – there was no need to look any further. There’s something incredibly beautiful about the balance of light and drama in these images; yet there’s also a stillness, a thoughtfulness to them. And of course, the wedding photographs you’re about to see capture the joy of our gorgeous couple’s wedding day, the love and the magic of it all. Join me, be swept away by their beautiful wedding day as you scroll through and read all about this beautiful Priston Mill wedding. All images by Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad. With love,
Good morning lovely, and welcome to today’s pretty, sunlit, beautifully-dressed summer wedding! Gorgeous couple Carly and Steve tied the knot in August, choosing our fabulous friend and Thornbury Castle wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day. Carly is breathtaking in a stunning embroidered gown from The Dressing Rooms in Halesowen – if anyone knows the designer of this dress, do give us a shout because we LOVE it! The florals are divine, and Claire from The Wilde Bunch (who Martin recommended to Carly and Steve) gets the loveliest review from our happy couple.
Sean & Charlotte’s Coombe Lodge wedding was relaxed, fun filled and full of love. Their theme of rustic romance in blush, cream and greens incorporated traditional touches: lace, hessian, lots of candles and lots of florals. Charlotte is stunning in an Essense of Australia dress, and Sean wears his military uniform – so today’s wedding will appeal to all of you lovelies who are looking for traditional, pretty and classic styling ideas for your day.
