A classic English wedding day

The scene for today’s wedding blog post is The Manor By The Lake. The tone of the day is beautiful, cheeky and fun. The bride and groom are Dawn and Gavin, very much in love and all smiles from beginning to end.

I shan’t waffle: I’ll leave you to read and enjoy.

How beautiful does Dawn look as she waits to walk down the aisle?

While the grown ups do the important bits, maybe she’s dreaming of her wedding day. (Did you read our fun wedding blog feature where Jenny McAvoy surveyed kids about their dream weddings? If not, read ‘discover your inner seven year old‘)

Dawn and Gavin’s Vegas themed wedding reception

real wedding by McAvoy Photography (21) This really is – to steal a phrase from the McAvoy Photography blog - like a virtual trip to Las Vegas! Tables are named after the big hotels & casinos. The table plan would be at home in a Vegas casino too!

real wedding by McAvoy Photography (26) I love this too: romance, love and a classic English wedding look. The colours burst out from the image – very much a feature of the weddings I love seeing on the McAvoy Photography website.

real wedding by McAvoy Photography (40) McAvoy Photography are sponsors of the English Wedding blog, and a favourite wedding photography team for me: I’ve met Jenny, she’s sweet and charming and has an infectious giggle: an instant friend and a lovely lady. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer you can relate to, smile with and trust to create gorgeous contemporary pics of your wedding day… look no further than the McAvoys.
