A wet knot is a tighter knot – a beautiful Somerset farm wedding by Simon Biffen Photography

There’s a saying I’d never heard before! If you’re worried about rain on your wedding day, it’s one to remember. Pips and Ian were married back in May, and you might say they were unlucky with the weather… but seeing their wedding photos I don’t think it matters for a second.

Imagine you have everything set up for your big day: the marquee is beautifully decorated, and instead of heading outside to smoke or play giant Jenga, all of your guests are together inside. It’s what makes a wedding so special, isn’t it? Everyone you love together in the same room to celebrate with you? It certainly was a special day for Pips and Ian, and their wedding looks like a wonderful day – umbrellas included!

Kristen and Adam’s winter wedding has everything: a pretty sense of style, DIY details and quirky personal touches which are special to them. This gorgeous couple chose to marry at Northbrook Park in winter, for the very best reasons: “it is a lot cheaper and you get to go somewhere really nice and sunny for honeymoon! :)

It’s this kind of creative thinking I love best about UK couples! And creativity is a key part of their wedding style too: Kristen and Adam put so much into styling their wedding with DIY invitations and details – they did an amazing job and the overall look of the day is wonderful.

Kristen is a stunning bride, wearing a gown by Sophia Tolli with Vivienne Westwood pearls and shoes by Rainbow Club. She’s radiant in the winter sunshine and looks so incredibly happy with new husband Adam – the perfect English bride and groom.

Lovely Jo Linder from Vintage Twee has launched new versions of her best selling wedding party picks: vintage and rainbow coloured party picks for civil weddings with ‘mr & mr’ or ‘mrs & mrs’ in a lovely vintage typewriter font. It feels like such a long time since England’s first same-sex marriages were making the news – so it’s wonderful to see them inspiring such a lovely new collection from one of my favourite wedding suppliers.

Imogen and Liam’s gorgeous Paris style Sun Pavilion wedding, with Sansom Photography

What an incredible venue choice for today’s real wedding feature – Harrogate’s Sun Pavilion – a restored historic venue reflective of the Art Deco period – perfect for a modern wedding. The glittering Sun Pavilion provides the most amazing backdrop for the gorgeous wedding of Imogen and Liam.

Wedding photographers Chris and Verity (Sansom Photography) said, “It was great to finally get the chance to shoot in the Sun Pavilion and the spectacular glass ceiling didn’t disappoint. The pavilion decking provided much needed shade and a great area for the drinks reception.”

Despite a toppling Eiffel Tower wedding cake and with very little extra venue decoration needed, Imogen and Liam created an elegant wedding with a Parisian theme in navy blue. I think it’s wonderful and I’m proud to share their day with you on the English Wedding Blog.
