Hello beautiful 🙂 I have a little treat for you today – and a treat for me as well because this styled shoot is everything I love most. Lovely Louise from And So To Wed curated a fabulously elegant shoot at Tanfield House in Yorkshire. The ideas are divine, the images superb, the styling out of this world.

Using a colour palette of white and barely there gold, alongside soft natural foliage, textures and lace fabrics the shoot evokes feelings of timeless warm winter celebrations in luxurious surroundings, capturing the feel of a winter wedding morning and the reflective time of the bride at this truly fabulous venue.


Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a brilliant day. I’m busy working on blog features and scheduling everything for May already (birthday month: eeeee!!) and wanted to quickly reach out to any wedding suppliers considering blog advertising.

I have half a dozen slots free from May; they’re only £50 per month and come with regular features to really give your business a push and get you noticed! The blog currently has more than 45,000 readers a month! If you’re interested, do read my media pack to find out more: http://english-wedding.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Media-pack-2015.pdf


Good morning lovely wedding blog readers! I hope you’re really really well and looking forward to the day ahead. Don’t work too hard!

I have a very quick notice for you today – for any of you waiting for brand new blog features to be published at my usual time of 11am, there will be an awkward silence at this time… oh no!  But don’t despair… being an early bird I’m bringing forward my blog features every day and will now be publishing at 10am instead. Why? So you have an excuse for biscuits earlier 🙂 and so will I!

It’s been an amazing, exciting rollercoaster of a year here at English Wedding Blog towers, and I’ve been spending a little time looking back at some of my highlights – and yours! As I prepare to switch off my laptop and dive into the mulled wine I’m going to leave you with no fewer than 100 – one whole hundred – of my favourite real weddings from the last 12 months. They should give you plenty to read whenever you need an escape from the festivities over the next couple of weeks!


Without the lovely sponsors who support the English Wedding Blog, we wouldn’t be here. I owe everything to the wedding photographers, designers and experts who sponsor my blog, share content and contribute articles, advice and more. I’d like to take today to say a huge thank you and to show you some of their best bits!
