Hello you lovely people!

Have you had a wonderful weekend? I do hope so. I’ve been teaching calligraphy so I’m having a slow Monday, picking out the things I love most from the top of my to do list, and saving the rest for tomorrow! And very happily for a Monday morning, I have some cakes to share with you… on our screens if not in person! (I wish I had cake!) This month we’ve had some brilliant wedding businesses join us, and today I’m thrilled to be welcoming Amber’s Bakes and Cakes to English Wedding.

A gorgeously relaxed wedding, festival-inspired in both look and approach, from a super fun couple whose guests camped out in shepherds’ huts, bell tents and safari lodges for the occasion! All images are by English Wedding member and Cambridge wedding photographer Damien Vickers, who gets a brilliant review from the happy couple below.

I absolutely love these two, not least for this magical little comment in their interview:

We both found our outfits in the first place we looked (mostly because we didn’t want to do anymore looking ;)).

I’m in love with this wedding. It’s bright and joyful and colourful and… well, it’s everything. Jimmy and Aaron are gorgeous. Their photos show a love and tenderness which is just adorable. Their day is relaxed and fun, playful and full of special moments which are making me smile back at my screen. The venue is very quirky. Aaron and Jimmy are a super relaxed couple, very much in love and asked their guested to dress in the LGBTQ+ flag colours and they did not disappoint. The outfits and shoes were just wonderful, as you will see. It was a wonderful colourful wedding. I always like to begin a new month with an amazing wedding, and today’s makes me SO happy. I do hope you love it too!Claire's signature

Let’s start this week off with a fabulously colourful, joyful, vibrant and exciting wedding, shall we? Knowing we’d be featuring this beaut of a wedding today, I smiled SO much when I spotted Jennie & Verity’s happy faces on the home page of Artisan X Photography‘s website this morning! These two gave their Birmingham wedding photographer an amazing review – and well deserved, because the overwhelming happiness of this wedding comes across so strongly in their photos. The rainbows splash colour everywhere; the bouquets are just stunning – and a spot of punting along the river Cam makes this one of my favourite weddings we’ve featured so far this year! Oh – and it makes me happy and proud to share this as a reminder that not every wedding has a groom. I’d love to feature more weddings with two brides or two grooms – any wedding photographers reading, please check our submissions page right now!
Shall we dive right into this glorious rainbow wedding then? I think so!

Oodles of craft projects and personal touches for a stunning Cambridgeshire wedding. Sophie is sooo beautiful and Craig looks fab in a relaxed country style suit. There are swing boats and paper lanterns, stunning florals (we do love those dahlias!) and lots of vintage touches for this travel theme wedding. It’s wonderful to see a late summer wedding from 2019… let’s keep everything crossed for events like this later in 2021!
