For those of you planning your 2021 and 2022 weddings… if you’re in a position to plan and book suppliers early, I implore you to do so. Your wedding will be hosted, captured, styled and celebrated by the amazing independent creative businesses that make the UK wedding industry the sparkling star it is. And we need your support. While the pandemic has us all locked down for now, established wedding vendors are working hard to stay strong and keep earning – and those early deposits and bookings could save us and our families from truly desperate times.

The English Wedding Directory is our curated list of brilliant independent UK wedding vendors. Our Insta is updated with new vendors when they join us, and the Directory is full of brilliant photographers, stationers, florists, stylists… everything you might need for the wedding of your dreams! These lovely people have become #englishweddingmembers in the last couple of weeks. Do take a moment to discover them, and if you like what you see why not get in touch and even book this weekend?

For all of you lovely brides and grooms out there, I want to keep blog life as normal as possible right now: a beautiful anchor in this crazy storm we’re living this spring. (For wedding suppliers – watch this space as I’m working hard on something of a rescue package today – details to be announced soon.)

So we begin the week with Hayden & Rabia’s stunning summer wedding from Kilminorth Cottages in Looe. These two are everything: properly gorgeous, and their wedding is the most joyful celebration – as uplifting as can be! The florals are breathtaking; the styling of their day simply perfect. I hope you love today’s feature as much as I do.

With love,

I love the look of today’s wedding: the perfect mix of elegance in a country venue; with foliage throughout the styling and some beautiful forever memories. The flowers are divine, the cake just perfect, and our bride and groom such a gorgeous couple! This is how paper lanterns look beautiful: in a blank canvas venue to add shape and colour where it’s needed! Watch out for the loveliest dog ever…

Helen and Mike had planned a lovely outdoor ceremony but when the heavens opened they luckily had a plan be and moved proceedings indoors to the Garden Room, which was beautifully decorated to match the wedding colour scheme of ivory, cream and green.

Helen wore an elegant, sleek wedding dress from Sam Cox Bridal, with dusky blue suede sling-back heels to match the colours in her bouquet. She opted for pastel shades for her wedding flowers, which were provided by St Mellion Flowers and consisted of roses, stocks, and blue thistle, tied with hessian and a pastel blue ribbon.

I love Sophia and George’s wedding – Sophia is SUCH a beautiful bride. The flowers are gorgeous, George’s suit is fantastic, I love their little slate place names… and the setting and outdoors images are out of this world.

Photographer Tracey Warbey told me it was a very emotional day: “there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Sophia walked down the aisle, she looked stunning.” And Sophia and George are thrilled with their images. They will be recommending their photographer and videographer to everyone they know: “An absolute investment!!!! Those are the two things I will encourage my friends who are getting married to invest in, the day comes and goes, but the memories last for ever, so ensure some one has captured them in the manner you envision.

I love Trevenna Barns. This was my second wedding there in five months. It provides a beautiful backdrop for any wedding, as it is set in the wonderful Cornish countryside. I like the fact that the wedding party can hire the whole venue as well – it makes it more personal I think.
