So we’re more than halfway through the week (yay!) and I have something really unique and different to share with you. It’s a fun Tipi styled shoot, playing off the ‘bringing the outside in’ trend, with a twist. This unconventional wedding look was created and styled by the rather fabulous Florence & Vera at Cotswold Field of Dreams and planned by the folks at Timber and Canvas. The images are by lovely Elena Popa Photography, a Surrey wedding photographer who loves to work with creative, non-traditional couples! The shoot is beautifully styled, featuring peacock chairs, bridal trousers and a super fun removable train.

Ah, Monday – would you allow me to wear my pyjamas just a little longer while I blog? It’s been a busy old weekend here at English Wedding HQ and I’m just a little sleepy… and yes, I know it’s nearly lunchtime! How was your weekend? Anyways, I have the loveliest wedding style ideas for you today – from my lovely friend Sheryl at Oobaloos Photography in Cheltenham. Sheryl stepped in at the last minute to capture this beautiful photoshoot from Lords of the Manor Hotel, a former 17th century rectory situated in the heart of the idyllic Cotswolds countryside. I was thrilled when she asked me if I’d send one of the new invitation suites we’re now selling in the English Wedding Shop (go see!) and I’m just over the moon to be sharing all of these lovely images today.


The English garden wedding theme is one – quite possibly the only one – which will always be on trend. We love the romance of our home-grown flowers, the greenery and scents of hazy summer days – and it’s a style which conjures up memories from childhood, days in the countryside and magical holidays close to home.

Greenery is a huge thing for 2017 – and we love it to bits. This shoot is full of gorgeous foliage and fabulous styling with softer accent colours and statement blooms. Stylist Lauradana from Wedding Creations combines those gorgeous greens with white and soft pinks to create a feminine wedding style I know you’ll love.
