It’s SO exciting to have weddings back! We’re thrilled for all of you lovelies getting wed this spring and summer, and can’t wait to feature your 2021 weddings! (Because 2020, total drought year for weddings! We’re ready for double, if not TRIPLE the celebrations we had last year!)

It’s got me thinking about all the weddings I’d love to see on the English Wedding blog. So I put together this little bucket list of dream weddings I’d be over the moon to publish on these pages. If you’re getting hitched or if you’re a wedding photographer with a wedding to help us tick off any of these, do please get in touch!

Here’s how to submit a wedding to the English Wedding Blog!

Photographers, please ask your couple for permission to publish their wedding on the English Wedding Blog before you submit images. Then email me info@english-wedding.com with:

  1. An introduction to your wedding. What makes it wonderful and inspiring?
  2. A link to a Dropbox folder containing 60ish of your most beautiful, bloggable images at 1024px wide.

I’ll send you a copy of my interview form for your couple to complete. (This is required for every wedding we publish.)
