Weddings at The English Inn | Venue Spotlight

The English Inn has long been one of my favorite Michigan Wedding Venues. The main building is full of English charm and the banquet room is gorgeous with lots of windows to look over the immaculately kept grounds. Here are some of my favorite shots I’ve created there over the years. Below each image is a link that will take you to the couple’s full blog post. If you are looking for a wedding venue in the Lansing area I highly recommend going and checking this one out in person, you will not be disappointed. Adriana is the wedding coordinator there, splendid herself, and you can reach her at 517-663-2500 or See more information on their website by visiting
