A bouquet doesn’t have to be ‘just flowers’. The bouquets I love most are full of foliage, textures, berries… And a bouquet which is seasonal is the loveliest of all. In the colder months that means silvery leaves, delicate white berries, seedheads and a few choice blooms… Agnieszka’s is one of the loveliest autumn bouquets I’ve seen. And isn’t she a beautiful bride?

Today’s wedding also surprised me with the knowledge that the army has a motorbike display team, who ride vintage bikes and perform stunts at shows around the country! (Check out the bus!) – and while he didn’t bring his bike, groom Simon looks fab in true military style.

Every now and then, in the colder months of the year I like to brighten up everyone’s day with crazy beautiful colourful flowers. So here… today’s Dorset wedding is pure joy for your screens and I hope you LOVE it!

I adore Pippa’s dress – she’s such a beautiful bride. Dick is fantastic – his character shines through in every image and makes the day a true favourite for me. There’s nothing like the spirit of summer to brighten a November day, right?

How did you choose your photographer?

We looked online at a few different photographers and got in touch with Linus. We loved Oana’s photos that Linus sent us so we decided to go with her.

Annie and Sam are gorgeous! Their day is just the perfect English wedding – celebrating love in a magnificent venue, surrounded by history and character and by everyone they love. Today’s is a wedding where elegant touches are carefully considered – Annie’s dress is divine, her flowers simple but with intriguing, delicate little tendrils of foliage. And the wonder, the essence of the day comes from Dorset’s beautiful Athelhampton House.

“The day was a joy and creatively refreshing. A familiar venue, a great couple and new artistic opportunities… Being a relatively small wedding, we were lucky to have more time to devote to some relaxed portraits around the grounds. Avoiding as far as possible clichéd locations, we were looking for something new and fresh. Low perspectives won through, shooting through ground covering cyclamens, reflections in pools and finding new walk ways away from the house!” ~ Linus Moran

Almost every morning you’ll find me on the beach, or in the hills gazing down at the estuary below the village where I live. I have a thing for beach weddings – they’re the most amazing thing ever! I love the portraits of Michael & Sara, especially the black & white images on the sand… they’re gorgeous and this is incredible!

Photographers Emily & Steve told me “The Grand Hotel in Swanage is perched right on a cliff with steps down to the beach! It was stunning and the perfect location for a summer wedding. It was the first wedding we’ve been to where the guests suddenly started to serenade the couple with ‘Love is all around’. They were all swaying their arms and really getting into it! It was so much fun!”

My dress was in the first shop I went to and I hadn’t ever seen a wedding dress similar to it. I liked the front with a bit of sparkle but fell in love with the back with the cowel back, buttons and train. I did go to another shop to have a look but there was nothing anywhere near as beautiful so rushed straight back to Village Brides to buy it.

I love today’s real wedding blog – the peonies, the lens flare, the castle… the details are simple but the overall look is so elegant and beautiful. And Lulworth Castle is fabulous… the interior is perfectly imperfect and would lend itself to a modern, almost urban wedding style as gracefully as it does to today’s wonderfully feminine & romantic theme…

Castle wedding in Dorset at Lulworth Castle with Jodie Cooling Photography (34)

“The wedding flowers were pink peonies, gypsophilia, all very pretty and pink! We went for tall table arrangements at the castle as it helped to draw the eye upwards into the beautiful building. Our florist was Christine Browne of Floral Arts in Weymouth, she knows the castle inside out so knew what would work. Pink peonies were really my only request and although we discussed it all, we left it to her to do a great job for us. Trust them – they know what works!”

I have a little treat for you this Sunday morning… so stay snuggled up with a cuppa and enjoy this pretty country garden celebration from Eastclose Hotel in the New Forest – the flowers are gorgeous, and Kerrie-Ann is breathtaking in her Suzanne Neville gown from Brides of Winchester.

Images are by Jake Moore Photography, who told me “having been to school with Kerrie-Ann it made it so much easier for me to shoot her day plus go more unnoticed than usual as a photographer. I felt more like a guest than at work! The venue is perfect for weddings and each time I go there it gets better with more detail added. The weather always helps as the grounds are too beautiful to miss out on a wedding day.”

Lovely Hayley from Brides of Winchester loves Suzanne Neville’s designs: “Kerrie-Ann looks ah-mazzing in Willow by Suzanne Neville, a stunning corded lace fishtail with beautiful buttons down the back, which she teamed to perfection with a sparkly cathedral length Helen Martin veil and Ivory and Co headpiece.”

Today’s wedding will have you grinning happily at your screen and pinning to your heart’s content! I love the evening shots with all the sunshine – in fact the whole wedding looks fabulous. (I didn’t know that many people could get on the roof of a Landrover…!!) More to the point though, I love the festival vibe, the details shots of the flowers, bunting and sparkly lights. I adore Aimee and Tom – they look gorgeous, and amazing together. This is wedding blog gold, guys!

This was the sort of wedding which as photographer I call a gift – an incredibly happy couple, a stunning venue, and above all a really relaxed and fun feel where the day just flows, and magical moments continuously present themselves. Aimee and Tom were so happy together, and the atmosphere was infectious, with all their young friends having such a good time. I felt completely absorbed in the day, and stayed right till the end!

Happy Friday!!

Happy Monday morning, you lovely lot! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend and I wanted to start our week with something extraordinarily wonderful… a real wedding I’ve had stashed up my sleeve for a little while now, and one I love so, so much! Chrissi and Tom’s wedding is unique for their dramatic images by the ruins of Corfe Castle. Their wedding was photographed by fabulous Dorset wedding photographers Linus Moran and associate photographer Chris Gorman at Linus Moran Photography.

The energy of the couple, their relationship both between them and their gathered friends and family made the day special for me as photographer. This shone through in the images I captured on the day, with some particular favourites from last year’s shooting arising from their day. Namely the ceremony pictures of the bride and groom upon meeting each other at the altar. The look exchanged between them, the curve of Chrissi’s mouth, a beautiful moment of connection. This coupled with great light, composition and timing – its stands out to me. The exchange between mum and daughter at bridal prep with the two bridemaids looking on, and the series of images we did on the fields across from the ruins of Corfe Castle.

Betty & Phil’s day stood out from others I covered last year as it seemed to be very simple in its delivery. The bride, the details, the location – all very classic, chic and English garden themed. From the Sassi Holford dress, to the idyllic thatched cottage B&B venue at the foothill of St Catherines chapel. The weather was perfect, the scene was stunning and the spirit of the couple and the people topped it all off.

Did you know the English Wedding Blog has been a top UK wedding blog since 2011? Time flies when you’re having fun… and I’m constantly surprised by the new suppliers I discover here. Today it’s an incredible venue: Weymouth’s Nothe Fort, where a group of creative Dorset wedding suppliers got together to style one of the best shoots I’ve seen this year!

Lovely Rachel from Exquisitely You wedding & event specialists got in touch to share the shoot with me. I love the way the pretty details contrast with the backdrop of the fort – an old military base (and while I’m a pacifist through and through, there’s something thrilling in seeing a war base taken over and put to better use!) The cake is divine; the flowers super pretty and the balloons and big letters perfectly on trend for a summer wedding!
