It doesn’t usually take me this long to sort through the images I’m sent for a wedding blog feature, but photographer David Stubbs sent me so many gorgeous images I was truly spoilt for choice! I know you’ll love Louise and Christopher’s wedding – they have individuality and style; they’ve created a wedding day full of ideas and which looks as amazing in the images as it must have been to be there on the day!
Louise is a stunning bride in her Enzoani dress and Christopher looks fab in his Next jacket and trousers – loving those polka dots and the shades! The VW camper van is a star; there’s a gorgeous little flower girl who almost steals the show and of course (as Louise puts it!) – a bucking bronco! I’ve been kind and only included the picture of Christopher as he’s doing well on the back of it… hehe!
All of the gorgeous images are by David Stubbs Photography:

Best bit of budget advice?
Blow the budget you only get married once ha ha, seriously though we did try to keep within a budget but we did go a little over towards the big day, which I think most weddings do, so a word of caution have a slush fund to dip into, there’s always those little extras that crop up, that you won’t have thought of!
