How to describe this wedding in a short title… yikes: couldn’t do it! Nicky and Martyn will be familiar to many of you from the English Wedding e-shoot week we did in January. Little did I know when I featured one of wedding photographer Mark Tierney‘s favourite engagement shoots that the couple were already married and that their wedding photographs would blow me away.

And yet I checked out the Tierney Photography blog just to see – and I found this gorgeous wedding which I had to blog! Beautiful bride Nicky’s look is out of this world: she mixes classic and quirky in the most incredibly exciting way. Not only that, groom Martyn is gorgeous and the photographs of their wedding day are knock-your-socks-off fabulous with a cherry on top.

This wedding is already a favourite of mine and I know you’ll love it too.

Nicky's quirky alternative fascinator is what first made me gasp out loud. Doesn't she look incredible!

The beautiful bride. I love the light cast from the windows and the reflections on the bus - even the roof polished to a shine to make Nicky look incredible

With huge thanks to Mark Tierney for letting me blog his wedding photographs again. Thanks also to Kelly from Boho Weddings and Events who featured this wedding back in the summer!

Nicky and Martyn – I hope you’re enjoying married life to the max! You’re an inspiration, guys.
