Morning everyone! What a week it’s been – do you have lovely plans for the weekend? I hope so 🙂 I’m happy to be sharing a really wonderful wedding on the blog today and I hope you’ll love it. Claire and Damon were married in Surrey – their wedding at Wotton House made the most of an elegant and classical 17th century English country home. The images show a perfect wedding day, and bride Claire is breathtakingly beautiful.

James and Katherine’s big day is all about timeless elegance. This couple chose a luxury Surrey wedding venue (Botley’s Mansion) to host their day, and the wedding reception was all about delicate golden colours and beautiful, traditional styling.

Katherine describes their day as “An elegant and stylish wedding with a tasteful presence of gold, ivory and sparkle detail that provided a backdrop for the rich and colourful accents seen in the grand reception flower arrangements.” It most certainly is – and I think this wedding shows one of our most luxurious stately home wedding venues at it’s very best.

The photography is by lovely reportage wedding photographer Karen Flower, and Katherine and James have shared their wedding story with you today as well – it starts about a third of the way down the page. Enjoy – and be inspired! Claire xxx

I’m feeling quite proud of English Wedding Blog this week. Today’s real wedding in Dorset is one reason for my pride – it’s such a lovely countryside wedding day, relaxed and happy and full of ideas.

Andy and Polly were married at Bryanston School Church, Blandford Forum, Dorset. Their wedding reception was in a marquee on the lawn at Hanford School, Child Okeford, Dorset.

They chose Somerset wedding photographer Simon Biffen to photograph their day – and he documents their wedding beautifully. The pictures I have to show you today start with clay pigeon shooting and take us through the wedding ceremony, reception and on to twilight… it’s a beautiful English wedding and I do hope you enjoy the feature!

Who proposed, and how?

Having met and worked together at The Banda School in Kenya for three years, Andy told Polly they were going on cricket tour to Tanzania for a few days.
