Billy’s web-wide wanderings took him to one of our recommended wedding photographer‘s blogs this week – none other than Anneli Marinovich.

The shoot that caught his eye was Terri and David’s engagement shoot, with some lovely backdrops and excellent props.

We love the cheeky expressions, the confidence and closeness of Terri and David… but most of all we love the books. Brilliant! Always take props for an engagement shoot, always!

I’d guess that 80% of brides hope for a sunny wedding day, perhaps 10% hope for snow and 10% either don’t mind (happy to be inside) or just want interesting weather… which are you?

Now, who wants fog?

Lake District wedding photography - foggy bride and groom by Jason ChambersBilly Idol found this gorgeous foggy wedding photograph on Lake District wedding photographer Jason Chambers’s blog. Isn’t it fabulous?

Now who wants fog? Hmm?




Today’s daily wedding inspiration quickie is from a Lake District pre-wedding photoshoot Billy found on the Lawson Photography blog.

Lake District pre wedding photographyI love the Lakes more than anywhere else in the world. It was lovely to read that groom-to-be Ming had flown in from Hong Kong especially for this shoot. He and Suki make a lovely couple and I love how they’ve dressed for the shoot!

There’s more on the Lawson Photography blog including a brilliant photo of a photographer really earning his money…




This week Billy‘s been reading the wedding photography blog of lovely lady Hannah Dornford-May and this is a favourite photo which gives a real taste – sorry – of a gorgeous wedding full of lovely details.
Wedding Cheesecake from Hannah Dornford May photographyThere’s this lovely wedding cheese cake, and delicious looking cupcakes as well. And the details from this lovely wedding include a wall of vintage clocks, old family photographs and stationery from Hummingbird Cards – it’s gorgeous.

Hannah Dornford-May shot this wedding alongside wedding photographer Sam Clayton whose blog will also be featuring here very soon!



Today Billy‘s found us a little bit of inspiration in the form of this pretty photograph from From Our Hearts To Our Hands.

This is so cute! And it says all you need to know about this group of photographers who collaborate on from our hearts to our hands. Check them out, they’re fab.



This is more about love than weddings (but then, weddings should also be more about love than about weddings, shouldn’t they! So it works nicely).

As the weather gets warmer, our intrepid wedding fan gets excited at the thought of seaside weddings – and this caught his eye: a boutique wedding from Devon wedding photographer Rosie Parsons‘s blog.
