Did I ever tell you how incredibly lucky I feel to do this for a living? Writing about gorgeous weddings, scrolling through eye-dazzling images of love and joy all day long? It’s a pretty special way to spend the days, and I’m feeling incredibly blessed this week with such dreamy content to share with you! Today’s couple are stunning Phoebe & Ed, who married at Childerley Hall in Cambridge and chose our friend and top UK wedding photographer Richard Skins to capture their day. Phoebe’s dress is just….. ahhh I don’t even have words: it’s more beautiful than beautiful has ever been before!

“I fell in love with my dress pretty much instantly; it was the dress I felt the most myself in and could 100% see wearing on the day. I remember walking out of the shop the first time I tried it on and saying to my bridesmaids, ‘I think I might have just found my wedding dress’. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after, which confirmed it was the one for me. The designer is Anna Kara, at Morgan Davies Bridal, Hitchin.

Hi everyone! I have been saving up this beauty of a shoot to glam up your Monday and give your eyes a treat! Lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Amanda Karen Photography delights us every time with her editorial shoots, and this is one of her very best. Teaming up with Fleur & Fig Styling & Events, the look is fine art beauty mixed with an edge of London chic. The backdrop is the fabulous (and brilliantly named) Dead Dolls House, which inspired Fleur & Fig’s styling and design concepts you’re about to see.

I adore the deep blues and greys used throughout the shoot: the cake crafted by Wildflower Cakes is breathtaking, and teamed with soft grey silk linens from Lancaster and Cornish and crockery from Classic Crockery it looks stunning. Lovely Lauren at Oh Wonder Calligraphy created a luxe invitation suite in her signature style with the most delicate hand torn edges and romantic calligraphy.

I’m thrilled to be featuring a styled wedding shoot by my friend and sponsor Amanda Karen Photography, with some of the loveliest names in the UK wedding industry. The colours – a super pretty palette of lilac and lemon – are divine. The details are just perfect. Those beautiful ribbons by Kate Cullen… fabulous. Stationery is by Megan Riera, whose gorgeous looping letterforms are right up my street! And those amazing flowers… they’re the work of the incredibly talented Jodie at Acacia. I’m so in love with today, I can’t tell you!Claire
