Morning lovely! Today we join stunning bride Sheila and her handsome hubby Paul, who were married in Ely, Cambridgeshire. These two are adorable together, their day shines with happiness and I love every moment of it. The styling touches are so prettily done too – and it’s all captured beautifully by lovely London wedding photographer Fiona Kelly Photography.

How did you choose your photographer?

Fiona was recommended to us by another photographer. Once we saw her style of photography, we knew she was the person we wanted to capture our day. We were also lucky enough to have Jesse as a second photographer.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Fiona and Jesse were brilliant. They were very thorough and incredibly well organised. Fiona struck a balance between guiding us through the day with helpful suggestions and capturing the day naturally. We had a lot of confidence that they’d do a great job and the photos were incredible. We were (and still are) so happy with them.

We’re not doing this Monday by halves, lovelies! We’re jumping right in to the week on English Wedding with a breathtaking, boho festival wedding which has everything. Gorgeous Victoria & Matthew’s day is brilliantly personal – the styling is done to perfection and its 100% uniquely THEM. The ceremony sounds amazing, with Aunty Jo (who told childhood stories and ended up with her own chant) in the role of celebrant.

Victoria’s incredible tasseled wedding dress is Woodrose by Willowby, from the highly recommended Heritage Brides. Matthew’s suit is from Master Debonair, discovered at A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London. Their day is captured beautifully (and with a wonderful focus on the entire ambiance of the day) by lovely Noemi at Thyme Lane Photography. I hope – actually I know – you will adore this.

With love,

When we went to look at our venue, the owner showed us some pictures of a shoot that they’d just staged there the previous weekend. After seeing those photographs, there was no one else that we wanted for the job!

Today’s stunning couple were married at Chippenham Park Hall in the springtime, and styled their day with the most incredible cherry blossom and pink peonies. Maryanne’s dress is incredible: the designer is Jenny Packham and the embroidery detail couldn’t be more perfect for the springtime! She looks beautiful – every bit the English springtime bride – and Adam her perfect match in his made to measure suit, bought in Dubai.

The colour theme was pink, white, green and gold. Both the marquee and church were covered in cherry blossom with real trees lining the aisle in the church. In the marquee the mixture of trees and hanging flowers from the ceiling was truly spectacular! The floral creations were the work of the amazing Lucy Vail. Maryanne told me her favourite flowers were the peonies and hydrangeas – the smells were simply divine!

These two are the most adorable couple – beautiful and happy on their wedding day. Philippa is stunning in her 1920s style dress – and wonderfully honest about her experience of finding ‘the one’ when it comes to dress shopping. Their photographer was our lovely friend Grace Elizabeth, whose images are simply breathtaking. You will LOVE this! Have a magical weekend everyone! xxx

Mark & Philippa's joyful Holmewood Hall wedding, with Grace Elizabeth (5)

How did you choose your photographer?

Philippa’s sister-in-law is a photographer so she helped us understand what we were looking for. She managed to get us a shortlist of 20 or so photographers who were available on our Wedding Day which we went through and picked our favourites. Grace Elizabeth was the first one we got in touch with and within a couple of hours we’d spoken on the phone, decided she was definitely the one for us and booked her!

Did I ever tell you how incredibly lucky I feel to do this for a living? Writing about gorgeous weddings, scrolling through eye-dazzling images of love and joy all day long? It’s a pretty special way to spend the days, and I’m feeling incredibly blessed this week with such dreamy content to share with you! Today’s couple are stunning Phoebe & Ed, who married at Childerley Hall in Cambridge and chose our friend and top UK wedding photographer Richard Skins to capture their day. Phoebe’s dress is just….. ahhh I don’t even have words: it’s more beautiful than beautiful has ever been before!

“I fell in love with my dress pretty much instantly; it was the dress I felt the most myself in and could 100% see wearing on the day. I remember walking out of the shop the first time I tried it on and saying to my bridesmaids, ‘I think I might have just found my wedding dress’. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after, which confirmed it was the one for me. The designer is Anna Kara, at Morgan Davies Bridal, Hitchin.

It’s the weekend so let’s PLAY! I have the funnest, prettiest, PINKEST wedding to share with you today, with gorgeous couple Poppy and Panos. They married in church and had a reception at Rectory Farm in Cambridge, where they styled the marquee with two beautiful big chandeliers hanging from the roof, and decorated the dace floor with huge pink paddle balloons with pink and white tassels. The David Austin roses everywhere are such a show stopper – this is most definitely a wedding for those of us who love pink!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend…. and ooh look, sunshine again! This week promises to be a beauty, so let’s fill it with some FABULOUS weddings shall we? I have a stunning Cambridgeshire wedding to share with you this morning. Beautiful Olivia and dapper hubby Philip had an outdoor ceremony and wonderfully light and bright marquee reception at Chippenham Park. My lovely friend Heather Jackson Photography captured their day in her uniquely beautiful style.

“Liv is a ballet teacher and laughs constantly when she is with Phil, she absolutely shone on their wedding day and laughed literally all day and night; even when it threatened to rain all morning!

Her ‘bride squad’ were hilarious and the mood of this day was just electric – I think this leaps out when the girls are together! Sharing laughs with their Best Man and ‘third wheel’ Richard during the ceremony was hilarious.

There’s nothing better than waking up on a Monday morning… and going straight back to sleep, is there?! Happy Bank Holiday everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely day, whatever you’re up to! Who else forgot to turn their alarm off this morning?! Anyways… today we have the most glorious Cambridge wedding to share with you. I love it: for Jen and Alex’s head-over-heels-in-love vibe, and for the beautiful summer feels captured so brilliantly by our friend and Norwich wedding photographer Rob Dodsworth Photography.

Gorgeous couple Lubov and Alexander met a few years ago through work and he proposed to her in Paris on a romantic holiday. They moved to London and wanted a very intimate, romantic elopement just for the two of them somewhere simple and beautiful so they chose the meadows of Wandlebury Hill in the Cambridgeshire countryside. They wanted everything to be kept very natural, all about their feelings and nothing else. They were a shy couple but very much in love with each other – and their elopement pics are some of the most romantic and beautiful I’ve ever seen.

Today’s real elopement shows you don’t have to have a big wedding to be married. Marriage is a commitment; celebrating it is separate, entirely up to you and can be as public or as private as the two of you would like it to be. You don’t need wedding favours, stationery, a massive cake or even a venue, or a band or caterers. All you ever need is just two humans in love.

Hey lovely! How was your weekend? I had a fantastic calligraphy workshop on Friday, followed by two Christmas shopping trips over the weekend… and yes, I’m almost done! We shopped locally in the Lake District and bought lots of gorgeous handmade bits and pieces for everyone. I still have my man to buy for… leaving the trickiest until last!

Today I’m sharing a gorgeous wedding which lovely Simon and Karla from Sky Photography submitted to the blog a few weeks ago. Gorgeous bride and groom Kayleigh and Kieron were married at Bassmead Manor Barns back in the summer (remember those wonderful sunny weeks which seemed to go on forever?!) and their day is just blissfully beautiful.

“Our wedding was just the best day ever, surrounded by our favourite people. It all happened in the beautiful English countryside during the 2018 heatwave.

We wanted to keep the day relatively informal. The venue didn’t require a lot of decoration, due to its gorgeous surroundings. We kept the decor quite natural, in a simple navy, white and blush theme. The flowers were a dusty pink rose ‘Amnesia’ and big fluffy white ‘David Austin’ roses amongst lots of luscious eucalyptus and greenery.

I love today’s wedding. Scrolling through the photos takes me on a mini rollercoaster of emotions – with gorgeous details and a stunning bride and groom, the proudest mum ever, and some wonderfully comical pics of little ones enjoying the day. The overwhelming feeling from this lovely Chippenham Park wedding is of love and happiness – and I know you’ll adore what you’re about to see.

Cambridge wedding inspiration from Chippenham Park with Lee Allison Photography (5)

This was a beautiful spring wedding at one of my favourite venues in Cambridge, Chippenham Park. The grounds are just amazing, a perfect backdrop at every turn. The bridesmaids wore unusual bright red dresses too which made for some great contrast in the group photos. ~ Lee Allison, Cambridge wedding photographer

Elegant and fun Madingley Hall wedding with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (12)
FEATURED

Hey lovelies! I’m so happy to be sharing such beautiful inspiration with you this week – I like to think I save the best until last and this year we’re celebrating December in style!! Today’s wedding combines historic elegance with lots of fun touches and a secret theme of Jane Austen – gorgeous bride and groom Bex and John had Jane Austen photo props and did their first dance as the dance from the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice!! How awesome is that? Images are by our lovely friend and sponsor Ayshea Goldberg Photography, who gets the loveliest review from the happy couple (just a couple of paragraphs on…)

Elegant and fun Madingley Hall wedding with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (23)

The Tudor hall at Madingley was so historic and beautiful. We personalised the Saloon Room with lots of photos of us and our family and friends. Our florist added incredible flower garlands to the staircases and the top table. We reused ivy garlands from the church over the grand fireplace and used the bridesmaids bouquets in pint glasses on the tables! My sister put together boxes of goodies for the bathrooms – facewipes, safety pins, chewing gum, nice soap and hand cream. They were such a lovely touch.
