I love these two. Helen and Dan – a bride and groom so gorgeous and full of personality you’ll wish you’d been there on the day. Their wedding had lots of lovely yellow details: a rose bouquet in two shades; beautiful bridesmaid dresses and a fabulous cake. Bailbrook House is magnificent: a Grade II* listed country house hotel located just a few minutes from the centre of historic Bath.

Helen is such a stunning bride, wearing a pearl- and sparkle-embellished dress with the loveliest waistband. Her hair piece is divine; her glasses stylish and sassy. Dan wears a great tweed suit – as their wedding photographer (the lovely Simon Biffen) says: “Dan cut a fine figure in one of the sharpest tweed suits I’ve ever seen.”

Morning everyone! I feel like sunshine today… and especially for my fellow soggy northerners this week I bring you all the sunshine you could need in the form of Nathalie’s lush sunflowers! Yay! Beautiful Nathalie and Daniel were married at the fabulous Folly Farm near Bristol and chose lovely Joseph Hall as their wedding photographer.

The sunflower inspired colours and rustic country style of their venue are a perfect match, and despite the rain (which kind of makes the day look even more charmingly English in the gorgeous photos!) their day is wonderfully inspiring. It’s a wedding both elegant and in tune with nature, with summery bouquets and a rich green and yellow colour palette. Bridesmaids are in lush green and Daniel and his best boys sport the cutest yellow buttonholes to match the flower in Nathalie’s hair. The flowers and venue really make this Somerset wedding very special indeed!

Last Sunday evening was pretty special here at the English Wedding Blog – I asked for help to build up my lists of weddings by UK county and region, and the response from wedding photographers was fantastic. Today’s real wedding on the blog is all the way from North Wales – Hayley and Mark had their reception at Northop Hall, and their wedding photographer Darren Williams has kindly allowed me to share their day with you all.

North Wales wedding blog by Darren Williams Photography (10)This is a beautiful wedding which I hope will inspire you. Hayley and Mark used soft yellows as an accent colour for their day, and carried the yellow theme through from the bridal bouquet and buttonholes to their orders of service and on-the-day stationery. I think yellow is a wonderful colour for a September wedding, don’t you? Enjoy!
