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

Yes pleased, Jaye captured some great photos especially on the lake using her drone.

This one’s for all the adventurous souls out there. Don’t tame your spirits to have the wedding the media says you ‘should’. Follow your hearts, and let your commitment take a shape that suits the two of you perfectly. Elope in a spectacular location, if that’s the epitome of who you are as a couple!

Today’s blog is magical for its simplicity and romance. Nature provides the magnificent backdrop for gorgeous couple Andrew and Emma’s elopement in Northern Ireland. Images are amazing – they’re by Luke Flint Photography (https://www.lukeflintphotography.co.uk)

I’d elope. I’ve never shied away from saying this: if I got married right now, I’d elope. Easy. There’s just something wildly romantic about it being just the two of you (plus an amazing celebrant and lovely photographer, obvs) – and escaping into remote nature to say beautiful words – it’s my dream. So today’s glorious feature comes from stunning couple Matthew and Jane, with lovely Hannah Brooke Photography. I hope you’ll adore this as much as I do.“english

I wonder if 2021 will be the beginning of a surge in elopements… a year when couples put being married before all the frills of a wedding, and tie the knot, just the two of them, in the most romantic and dreamiest of ways. Perhaps this beautiful feature will inspire a few of you lovelies to consider an elopement. (And remember, the big party can always come later!)

Let’s never forget weddings are for everyone: while the wedding media’s demographic tends one way, here at English Wedding we’re looking to celebrate a rainbow of couples and today’s UK beach elopement is absolutely one of my favourites! Our couple Wendy and Nigel shine through their day: their happiness is infectious and the images by Devon wedding photographer Thomas Frost are simply out of this world. I’m so lucky to have found this gorgeous pair through the website of talented wedding dressmaker Felicity Westmacott – and oh my, what an incredible DRESS!
