Emily & Ash’s elegant, low-key wedding at Northbrook Park, with The Springles

I love the sunny glow of this wedding – Emily is too gorgeous for words and the portraits from Northbrook Park are incredible. It’s wonderful to see a low-key wedding too: one where the focus is purely on the romance of the day and the company of close friends and family – and captured so beautifully, Emily and Ash’s wedding is certainly one I’ll remember for a long, long time.

The thing we care about most when photographing a wedding, is of course the couple. We massively support marriage, having got married ourselves last year. We also love getting to know people and being able to share their first steps into married life is such a blessing for us. Emily and Ash were so obviously captivated by each other. They are one of those couple that have a tangible energy and connection that’s just SO obvious for everyone that meet them.” ~ The Springles

Laura & Simon’s breathtakingly beautiful wedding at Cripps Barn, with Jennifer Sinclair Photography

I don’t think there are words to describe this breathtaking bouquet… and it sets the scene for one of the loveliest weddings of the year. Laura and Simon married at Cripps Barn in February. Despite a little rain on their day, their smiles and laughter have been lighting up my screen all week – I just can’t stop scrolling through their wedding gallery.

“Jennifer took our photos for our wedding at Cripps Barn in Gloucestershire in February 2016 and we can’t recommend her highly enough – book her and you won’t be disappointed! Simon knew Jennifer from working together several years before, and when we started looking for photographers we took a look at her website, loved what we saw and dropped her a line. From the first meeting at our house, we knew we wanted her to take our wedding photos for us. She’s so lovely, chatty and friendly, we were instantly at ease and loved her portfolio and approach.” ~ Laura & Simon

Laura & Jonathan’s spring wedding in the Lake District, with Kathryn White Photography

The best thing about being married? “Knowing that whatever life throws at you, you have someone who loves you by your side throughout it all.” ~ Laura

Lake District wedding with Kathryn White Photography (16)

It’s fab to see an Easter wedding at this time of year – Laura & Jonathan’s day is so full of spring, just seeing the photos makes me happy! The images are gorgeous, the details are perfect, the setting is fabulous and of course the bride and groom are stunning.

Images are by Lake District wedding photographer Kathryn White, who told me “You couldn’t imagine a more perfect spring day in the Lake District – sunshine, birds singing, & plenty of daffodils. Every detail of this day had been thoughtfully considered and planned out to perfection.

Lake District wedding with Kathryn White Photography (21)

“The fact that it was Easter weekend gave a subtle theme with chocolate rabbits as favours and napkins folded into bunnies (by the clever wedding coordinator Michelle at the Rampsbeck) but without overdoing it. The whole day was very relaxed and chilled out, the sort of wedding where I felt more like a guest among Laura & Jonathan’s lovely friends & family than a vendor.

I actually chose my dress before we had officially got engaged, I saw a picture of it and knew it was the one. The first time I saw it properly I was just in awe at how beautiful it was, even on the hanger. It felt amazing on and I felt so special, so elegant. I had tried other dresses but nothing compared to THE dress

Kate and Geoff’s magical, sparkly winter wedding at Birtsmorton Court, with Ragdoll Photography

Today’s real wedding is as elegant and timeless as it is fun and quirky! Kate’s Delphine Manivet dress is gorgeous, I love the length and she looks absolutely amazing. I’m also hugely impressed it had pockets… that’s very, very cool indeed! I love the photos of the couple in the greenhouse, and the light up letters, and I think the atmosphere of this amazing day comes across brilliantly in the photos.

Images are by Rosie at Ragdoll Photography, who comes highly recommended by Kate & Geoff: “I was after relaxed, super chilled out, and natural shots. Rosie was fab. Super friendly, easy to get on with, flexible, and captured the day perfectly! I think she even helped my dad with his last minute info gathering for speech preparations!

Becky and Gareth’s gorgeous literature themed wedding at Somerford Hall, with Esme Fletcher Photography

I’m a bookworm, and proud! And I love a wedding with a venue full of books… if I could get married in the village library where I spent many happy hours as a little girl I think I would, you know?! So today, a treat: a beautiful English wedding from Somerford Hall with a wonderfully bookish theme and the loveliest couple ever: Becky & Gareth.

Somerford Hall wedding blog with Esme Fletcher Photography (39)

“Somerford Hall didn’t need a great deal of decoration as it’s so beautiful anyway. I asked for a few handmade and personal things in each room (there are so many rooms!), including vintage glass bowls filled with sweets, Jane Austen-themed bunting on the bar, and little wooden hearts on loops of ribbon. I made little framed paper crafted items, such as a list of all of our important dates, such as when we first met, and when we moved in together. My sister also updated some pretty horseshoes with ribbon and pages from old books – those horseshoes had been at my grandparents’ wedding!”
