Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had an amazing week. It’s been busy here – I promise I’ll show you some of the wedding calligraphy I’ve been working on, as soon as I can upload the images… I even missed a day on English Wedding Blog last week as I was writing so much! (whistles… did anyone notice it went quiet last Thursday?! Oops!)
Anyway, it’s been a brilliant couple of weeks for wedding submissions and one I loved most was from the very lovely Joseph Hall. I know you’ll love Simon and Gemma’s Bristol wedding – it’s simple and elegant and the images are wonderful. They’ll make you smile too: I don’t often say this, but watch out for the gorilla!
Simon and Gemma shared their wedding report at the end of today’s feature so do have a read, and leave a comment if you can! Congratulations to a bride and groom who are both gorgeous and generous for sharing their big day on the blog, and my thanks to wedding photographer Joseph Hall for the submission. Enjoy! Claire xxx
