This one’s special. Every once in a while I’m sent a wedding which absolutely blows me away – the romance of it all, the couple, the photography and the styling – and it goes STRAIGHT into my secret favourite weddings folder, ready to share again at Christmas. And on that note… hello Laura & Rob! These two just smile all day long. Their (safely before covid) wedding is joyful, beautiful and deliciously elegant with stunning styling touches. And a little surprise – well, a big surprise – instead of a wedding car. It’s like the biggest alternative-to-a-wedding-car we’ve ever seen, and it’s extra wonderful because of the story behind it. Oh, and one of our fave photographers gets a glowing review from the happy couple: lovely Midlands wedding photographer J S Coates was a big part of Laura & Rob’s day, and his photos are just incredible. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Weddings go by in a flash and a blur because there is SO MUCH going on. It might feel like 10 minutes, but the story of your day in pictures will be a revelation. So many of my wedding photographer friends say they struggle to send a selection of just 60 images for a blog post. I can totally see why – and today I’m really feeling it! Hannah & Jamie’s (pre-covid) village hall wedding is summed up beautifully in our header pic: it’s ALL about the people they love, and who love them.
The most amazing setting – festoon lights at sundown, a boho chic wedding in a tent, a stunning bride and gorgeous groom – and all those lovely guests, smiling, together, safe and so, so happy. This is Laura & Dicky’s wedding from before pandemics, and it’s full to bursting with joy, love and laughter. Plus all the amazing details we love to see, a million or so pom poms, and an incredible dress. Images by lovely Ellen J, tipi by our friends and #englishweddingmember Coastal Tents.

If I could feature a non-traditional wedding like this every single day, I would! The joyful air of celebration, the colour, the smiles, the fun from the very beginning until the very last sparkler twinkles out… and the cutest pooches on the planet! It’s all here. It’s wedding blog heaven, right here, today, and it’s all for you! Gorgeous bride and groom Alicia and Dan married last summer and their festival wedding is EPIC. The photos speak for themselves – but keep scrolling to find out all about their day including some brilliant Fieldgood Bar wedding suppliers for you to jot down.
I may overuse the word epic to describe the weddings I feature on here. Today’s though… well it feels as though epic doesn’t come close. So I’m bringing you Lily & Gareth’s spectacularly legendary wedding which I have a feeling will knock you off your FEET! This gorgeous pair made their day individual, full of joy and colour, stuffed it with bags of personality and left me reeling in a rainbow of glorious images. Lily’s dress is by our favourite Jo Fleming – and it is literally the most beautiful creation I’ve seen any bride wearing, ever.
