Good morning lovely! Are you feeling the nip in the air today? I have been looking forward to sharing this pretty winter wedding with you all – a November celebration which makes the most of pretty, sparkly fairy lights and has a warming, romantic vibe to the day. Gorgeous bride Hannah wears a shimmery, lace dress from Yours Truly in Maidstone, and the images of the day are captured by our friend and Kent wedding photographer Terence Joseph Photography – who gets a wonderful review from the happy couple!

As I write, the sunshine is peeking through the clouds up here in Cumbria, and the autumn leaves are glowing with fiery colours – it truly is a beautiful time of the year! Today’s couple Sophie and Chris chose to be married in the autumn, and used the most incredible florals to capture the magic of this time of year. Their images are by Kent wedding photographer Terence Joseph Photography, who I’m delighted to say is one of our newest English Wedding members.

I just love how today’s beautiful and intimate wedding travels from city chic to seaside bliss in just a few stunning frames! Beautiful bride Jade wears a minimal and graceful dress from The Pretty Dress company and Gboyega is super stylish in a fitted suit from T.M. Lewin. They describe their September wedding as private, simplistic, intimate, meaningful… and windy! And they chose the perfect Dorset wedding photographer – our lovely friend and English Wedding member, Linus Moran Photography (www.linusmoranphotography.co.uk)

So many of our brides and grooms on the blog say the best thing about their wedding was having everyone they loved all in one place at the same time: it’s a once-in-a-lifetime scenario and should be treasured! In Chris and Arabella’s case, the temptation to do what friends do when they get together was too much: Chris is a climber, and his friends arrived… so, rocks!!!

Weddings aren’t just for women. The wedding industry often ignores grooms – focusing every publication and brand on all things pink, pretty and romantic. But there are two halves to every wedding, and I think it’s a fairly safe bet that over half of the humans getting married wouldn’t choose pale blush and ivory as the most important aspects of their day.

Think about it.
