A beautiful English Wedding at The Manor House, Combe

UK wedding photography blog CG weddings (40)A Vera Wang wedding dress… Louboutin shoes for the bride and bridesmaids… horses and carriage… a wonderfully luxurious country house wedding venue in the Cotswolds… top hat and tails for the groom… and award winning wedding photographers.

So much to show you today, such a gorgeous wedding – and you know, for me the very best bit about Emma and Burnsy’s wedding is the love and laughter.

UK wedding photography blog CG weddings (51)This really is a fabulous designer wedding day – with so many details and moments to share with you I’m splitting the blog feature over two days. Today – the bridal preparations and wedding ceremony are all yours. Emma and her girls had the best morning ever – and there are some lovely photos which are guaranteed to bring a big smile to your face! I think today I’ll make the most of showing you that gorgeous Vera Wang designer wedding dress as well.

Tomorrow: there’ll be more from the wedding reception at the fabulous Manor House wedding venue in Combe (the Cotswolds). Emma wore the loveliest hair accessory and added a different belt to accessorise her wedding dress for the second part of the day – so this wedding blog feature fits nicely into two parts.

All photographs are by the – let’s say it again! – award winning wedding photographers CG Weddings, aka The Crawleys, from Cheshire.

The Wedding Dress

I wore the incredible Diana dress by Vera Wang, Christian Louboutin silver sparkle Pigalle shoes and two different belts by Vera Wang for the ceremony and reception.

The groom’s outfit

Burnsy wore a navy blue morning suit hired from Moss Bros with a Grey Top Hat and pink waistcoat to match the Bridesmaid dresses.

Memorable wedding day moments (part one!)

Laughing out loud the whole carriage ride with my dad on the way to the ceremony. Feeling like Burnsy and I were the only 2 people at our ceremony thanks to the way the Gazebo was dressed.

There’s more from Emma’s wedding report tomorrow, including the beautiful wedding venue decor, that stunning headband (I promise – Emma looks amazing!), and wedding day advice from the bride and groom.

  • It rained on our wedding day, however from most of the photos you can’t even tell it’s raining and all I can say to other brides is not to worry about the weather as you can still get great photos, even if it’s raining!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
