A lazy wedding preview!

Morning everyone, hope you’re all feeling amazing on this soggy, chilly Tuesday morning in September! Me too 😉 and I’m writing a lazy little blog post this morning to celebrate.

I have [counting…] sixteen gorgeous real weddings ready to share with you this month already – they’re really fab and there’s loads of ideas and really stunning themes to share with you, it’s so exciting! – but I’m going to keep you waiting for just one more day before I share the first one.

In the meantime I thought I’d tease you with an eclectic little collection of some of the fabulous weddings I’ll be sharing with you in September. Which is your favourite?

(I’ll be back in action with a proper wedding blog post tomorrow I promise!)

The perfect English Wedding blog!

I love this wedding with a cricketing theme! How summery, how very very English, and how perfect for English Wedding blog! The bride sent me the most amazing write up of the day so I thought I’d share my favourite bit for you now: “it was the happiest day of both of our lives by a million miles. We had no idea that it was possible to experience such continuous euphoria over the course of 12 hours. The moment the entrance music played at the start of our ceremony we both relaxed and the whole day flowed onwards effortlessly and totally joyfully from there“… the rest, you’ll have to wait a little longer for!

The opulent, dramatic wedding photo shoot

When Hannah Beatrice got in touch to share this wedding with me it looked really familiar – the venue is literally a fairytale wedding venue in Scotland and I remembered illustrating it for a table plan I designed a couple of years ago! With pink turrets and towers, this is a really unique wedding – I might just show you my drawing if I can find it!

 What’s new, pussycat?

One to watch out for 🙂

 A very special wedding blog

Antonia and Rob’s wedding is another real treat – they had a family focused, intimate celebration and the photos I have to share with you are absolutely adorable. They have the prettiest little flower girls and it’s a really idyllic day. Most of all, they did things their way: Antonia’s dress is a really pretty alternative to plain white or ivory – but I’m only showing you a peek for now! You’ll have to come back…

 The remote island wedding blog

Last but by no means least is this sneak preview from Jenny and Tim’s wedding day, photographed by English Wedding blog sponsor ARJ Photography. The photos are so beautiful they send a little shiver up my spine… and as if that weren’t enough, Jenny and Tim ended their wedding day with a Take That tribute band.

I hope I’ve got your attention with this little blog post… I can’t wait to show you all of these fab weddings and more!
