Alex & Adam’s fabulously musical & literature themed London wedding, with Miki Photography

Real wedding Artisan London with Miki Photography (30)

Don’t you just love a really good book? For me it’s fantasy; although I love the nostalgia of childhood books and old Penguin & Ladybird classics. Today’s wedding is gorgeous for its literary theme – and Alex & Adam are the loveliest couple, I’ve been so excited to share their day with you! This is an amazing wedding. The venue is fabulous: I love discovering little secret, tucked away venues with a character and mind all of their own. And the couple are absolutely gorgeous – Alex’s dress is divine; Adam’s smile is superb!

Real wedding Artisan London with Miki Photography (39)

Alex is a Secondary school English teacher and the church was where the famous Victorian poets Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning were married beofre eloping to the continent. Therefore the reception was literary themed with book print bunting, books on tables as centre pieces and Penguin style book covers as the table plan. Name cards were Puffin Book cover postcards that were chosen to suit the guests. Adam is an opera singer and the music was heavily important so this was another theme for the ceremony and continued with the best man’s personal song/speech.

Emma & Christian’s gorgeous Great Tythe Barn wedding, with TH Photography

Can we do this wedding backwards? Would that be ok… it’s just the first image to land in my inbox was absolutely breathtaking – I need you to see this one first!

WOW, right?! I know!! Emma and Christian’s wedding is gorgeous – from beginning to end (or vice versa, hehe) and the portraits of everyone are fabulous: Emma looks stunning and I LOVE the flowers, the smiles and how it’s so easy to see how much everyone enjoyed the day.

Images are by Tom at TH Photography, who told me Christian and Emma have become his good friends over the past few years as he and Christian are both in the wedding trade. A few months before, Christian was the magician at Tom’s own wedding!

Like anyone going to a friend’s wedding the best part is the marriage itself, seeing the emotion, love and joy they have for each other and showing it to the world.

Alice & Matt’s beautiful and relaxed Huntsham Court wedding, with Evolve Photography

real wedding in Devon with images by Evolve Photography on the English Wedding Blog (12)

I absolutely must share some of Alice & Matt’s advice with you before we see their fabulous images. With every real wedding feature I always ask my brides and grooms to complete a little interview for the blog, and theirs is one of the very best I’ve ever received. The advice for you lovely lot is superb:

What’s the best thing about being married?

The knowledge that we have made a life long commitment to each other has further strengthened our relationship.
The comfort in knowing you are loved and loved back.
You’ve married your best friend.
Seeing the ring on his finger, and knowing I put it there, gives me butterflies every time.

The upside down naked wedding cake – Ailsa & Phil’s Lighthouse theatre wedding blog

See what I mean?!

While you may not be able to book the suppliers from Ailsa and Phil’s special day (unless you’re heading to Oz for a destination wedding, you lucky thing!) you will most certainly fall in love with all of the ideas from this stunning cinema wedding.

Images are by the pretty amazing On Three Photography, who are based in Melbourne. It’s the furthest wedding I’ve ever featured on the English Wedding Blog, but it’s worth breaking every rule for… I promise.

Annabel & Ian’s chic seaside wedding at Turner Contemporary, with Kristian Leven Photography

Oh I do, more than anything else in the world, love to be beside the seaside. It’s home for me… and so seaside weddings make my heart sing! This one is all kinds of wonderful… and it’s deliciously different. We’re talking seaside chic, ultra modern and arty backdrops, and so many of those little moments (watch out for the smaller guests – they’re awesome!) which make every wedding unique. LOVE this!!!

Turner Contemporary wedding blog by London photographer Kristian Leven (35)

So many things made this day memorable, from the seaside location to the venue and to the couple themselves – seriously, such lovely people, and they really made me feel like part of the day. Also, Ian’s speech was fantastic – I don’t think I’ve seen someone so nervous, and yet pull off the speech so well! He couldn’t stay in one place and look at Annabel without being close to tears, so he had to keep moving and it made for a really lovely moment, which had everyone close to tears themselves!

Victoria & David’s gorgeous summer sailing club wedding, with Neil Walker Photography

Morning lovelies! I hope you’ve got a fun day planned – but before you head out do have a scroll through today’s gorgeous English wedding – it’s full of elegant style and classic ideas, with a wonderful reception at a sailing club (and of course some stunning beach shots!)

Sussex wedding Worthing Sailing Club with Neil Walker Photography (23)

Words & Images by Sussex wedding photographers Neil Walker Photography

The church was in the beautiful Sussex village of Findon, we then went on to Worthing Sailing Club, which of course is right on the beach. I was able to take advantage of the beach huts and the beach itself to get some beautiful photos of the two of them. The Sailing club itself has big windows all down the beach side, so I had wonderful light to play with for all the photos in the afternoon.
