I love the lightness of Heidi and Shaun’s pretty Glemham Hall wedding. Their flowers are deliciously pretty daisies with peonies and roses – and they fill my heart with summer vibes! Glemham Hall is one of Suffolk’s most beautiful venues: a 16th century family home surrounded by 300 acres of countryside and with its own 170-capacity marquee which is perfect for elegant weddings. Our beautiful bride tells us a little more about the day:

Our suppliers were mostly local. Karen Lear Florist, Tonia Edwards Cakes, My big Fat wedding disco, Blue daffodil events catering, Ayshea Goldberg Photography, Galley Slaves ice cream bikes. Our wedding stationery was provided by Andrew at Vintage Designs. Andrew provided a very personalised service and was extremely helpful.

I had a natural looking bouquet, with peonies, roses and other garden flowers from Karen Lear Flowers. The colours were pale pinks, whites and lilacs. Flower girls had gypsophila crowns and a small bouquet of mini daisies.


A sense of normality returns to English Wedding Blog HQ as I have one of the loveliest weddings of the year to share with you. David and Jodie’s art deco inspired Norfolk wedding is just so beautiful… The bride is stunning; the groom looks fabulous, the atmosphere shines through their images. You’ll love every moment!

Such an amazing wedding blog only gets better with brilliant advice from the bride and groom. “Don’t try to save money, but don’t spend more than you need to.  My advice is set a budget and work to it. If you can’t afford it, then don’t do it/have it.  Focus on the main areas and spend as much as you can afford on the important parts.”

Beautiful bride Jodie told me many of their wedding suppliers were recommended by their venue, St Giles House Hotel: the flowers and entertaiment, for example. She already knew of the bridal boutique where she found her gorgeous dress, and said everything else was scoured via the internet, such as invites, place cards, place card holders etc. On the day stationery was beautifully homemade, and Jodie was glued to Etsy & Pinterest for favour ideas!


It’s with a twinkle in my eye and a ringmaster’s flourish that I’d like to introduce you to my  new wedding blog sponsor this morning!

My favourite invitation from Vintage Designs is the ‘Two peas’ invite – for the concept and the illustration. But Andrew’s English Wedding Showcase Page proves he can turn his hand to vintage inspired designs from any era, with every illustration so caringly crafted and beautifully made.

Andrew told me,  “Vintage Designs is founded on the principle of time honoured, traditional design – I love the detail, small elements that can go unnoticed at first, but gradually reveal themselves to you.

“I want to excite and inspire the wedding couple, to provide something that not only makes them feel special to use as an invite, but also makes their recipient feel special to receive such an item.”
