It feels like summer when I look at today’s wedding – I’m beaming back at my screen and totally head over heels in love with the images of Josie and Joe’s day. It was a super hot day; their tipis provided beautiful shade and the styling and florals create the perfect summer vibe. Josie is resplendent in a delicately patterned lace dress by Agnes; Joe’s tweed suit says English country gent to a T! I LOVE the sunflower signage, the DIY elements and the glorious summer vibe of their wedding – and of course the joyful images by Benjamin Wetherall Photography. I just know you’ll adore this one too!

How did you choose your photographer?

We already knew Ben as he’s a very good friend, but if anything this nearly stopped us from asking him to be our photographer, as we wanted him to be a guest and enjoy the day too. However, we’d been lucky enough to have been guests at a few events he has worked at and we love his style. His photos are always incredible so we knew we’d regret it if we didn’t ask him to photograph our wedding. It was so good to not have to worry about this element of the day, as we had total trust in Ben and his organisation, professionalism and of course photos.

Well, hello there weekend!!! It’s wonderful to be here! – and lovelies, before you head out Christmas shopping, do indulge in a little weddingness with me? I have the prettiest day to share with you, including some of the loveliest evening portraits of our gorgeous couple Leigh & Adam. The pair were married at The Plough at Leigh, and chose English Wedding member Terence Joseph as their wedding photographer. 

“We made and sourced a lot of decorations ourselves, but the barn already looked beautiful with hops and fairy lights. We loved making some of our decorations as we got friends and family onboard and was fun to do altogether! We made name places, jars with hessian and signs – who knew we had so many creative friends! My favourite thing to make was our ‘Find your name to find your place board’ – we put Polaroids of all guests on the board with string and pegs so people could take them home with them.

Good morning lovely! Are you feeling the nip in the air today? I have been looking forward to sharing this pretty winter wedding with you all – a November celebration which makes the most of pretty, sparkly fairy lights and has a warming, romantic vibe to the day. Gorgeous bride Hannah wears a shimmery, lace dress from Yours Truly in Maidstone, and the images of the day are captured by our friend and Kent wedding photographer Terence Joseph Photography – who gets a wonderful review from the happy couple!

Hannah and Tom told me their wedding style was centred around the fact it was more of a winter wedding – the wood fire, fairy lights and candles all added to the effect. Their venue was The Plough at Leigh, and they found suppliers via recommendations from family, from internet research and reading reviews, and from the venue’s open day.

As I write, the sunshine is peeking through the clouds up here in Cumbria, and the autumn leaves are glowing with fiery colours – it truly is a beautiful time of the year! Today’s couple Sophie and Chris chose to be married in the autumn, and used the most incredible florals to capture the magic of this time of year. Their images are by Kent wedding photographer Terence Joseph Photography, who I’m delighted to say is one of our newest English Wedding members.

The gorgeous pair were married at The Archbishop’s Palace, Maidstone and went on to The Weald of Kent Golf Club and Hotel at Headcorn – despite missing their OWN wedding bus as it left for the venue! They laughed and took it in their stride, grabbing the opportunity to have a couple of extra portraits taken with Terence as they waited for their bus to come back!

Welcome to the first weekend of autumn! I’m hoping for a crisp sunny afternoon with hints of bronzed leaves and for cosy snuggles with my man and my favourite jumper. How about you? … Oh, but you’re here for wedding ideas so I’ve got a little treat up my (woolly!) sleeve for you this morning, with a gorgeous wedding from The Plough At Leigh. The stunning couple are Nikki and James, and their photographer is our newest sponsor, lovely Terence Joseph Photography.

We met Terence at an open day at The Plough, he was so friendly and knew the venue very well so it was an easy decision to make.

We couldn’t have been happier with Terence, he was very professional and had us and our guests feeling very relaxed and at ease. He even managed to photograph some family members that were set against having their photo taken. He was interested in what ideas and visions we had. I felt we clicked and it was such a pleasure to work with Terence, he was very thoughtful and couldn’t do enough for us from the beginning right through to when I met him to receive our beautiful album and canvas. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, he did an amazing job.

Weddings aren’t just for women. The wedding industry often ignores grooms – focusing every publication and brand on all things pink, pretty and romantic. But there are two halves to every wedding, and I think it’s a fairly safe bet that over half of the humans getting married wouldn’t choose pale blush and ivory as the most important aspects of their day.

Think about it.

So I love seeing weddings where real life stands at the forefront. Moments, smiles, emotions, interactions between all the human beings who are there. Being a blogger means I know a lot of photographers: most folks I follow on instagram happen to be wedding photographers. And I get to see their other work: the real life things they capture* and my favourite of all, their street photography. And when this style creeps into a wedding it is one of the best things EVER.

A blissfully beautiful real wedding for you this Friday… I’ve been excited to share this one, and I just know you’ll love it! Becky and Martin married in July 2018 at Cooling Castle barn in Kent. They have a shared love of travel and adventure, and styled their wedding with nods to this from globes to photographs on each table and little mini travel cameras – the theme of travelling was all around.

Images are by our lovely friend and English Wedding member, Kent based Michelle Cordner Photography. Becky’s dress is from Wed2B, teamed with shoes from Paradox. Her hair is by Zara Rose and makeup is by Lydia Rae. Martin bought a suit from Moss and teamed it with a dusky pink tie from Asos. Floral styling and bouquets are by The Flowersmiths.

“Luckily our venue didn’t need too much decoration. The barn already felt really rustic and didn’t need much adding to it. We decided to add things like a few extra fairy lights, items to tie in with the travel theme like a light up globe, treasure chests for cards and gifts etc. The rest was all handmade items we added.

There were a few recommendations for High Rocks wedding photographers. We looked at a lot and we absolutely loved Helen’s style. We wanted our wedding to be captured exactly how it was – everyone smiling and having fun. We loved that Helen’s photos are really relaxed and just capture everyone’s emotions without them knowing.

HELEN IS A DREAM!!! From the minute she showed up to my hotel room (which was chaos) she fitted in like one of our friends. She got on with her shooting and we didn’t even know she was there. She made me feel so comfortable.

Hey everyone! Today we have a really contemporary and romantic wedding look to share with you – with beautiful images from Kingsdown Rectory in Kent.

This organic, pared back shoot was planned and styled by lovely Laura Jayne at Your Wedding, Your Way and photographed by Kate Hennessy Photography. It’s the most glorious inspiration for couples planning a relaxed and elegant wedding in a homely setting where they have freedom to create their own style. “With the outdoor elements, we wanted to portray the flexibility and scope of the space. The tablescape was designed to demonstrate how to mix the rustic look with elegant details to create a neutral, considered setting with natural elements. The shoot team consisted of mainly Kent based suppliers in this brand new, recently launched venue. Our gorgeous models’ smiles shone throughout the day and have created some stunning images, we hope you agree!

Oh thank goodness it’s Friday at last! I’ve been looking forward to sharing this beautiful wedding with you lovely lot all week! Our gorgeous couple are childhood sweethearts Joe and Kerry, who were married in church and celebrated at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

Their day is classic and beautiful – the dress is stunning and traditional with gorgeous, intricate detailing and a full skirt. Joe’s suit is accessorised with pretty pale pink accents, which tie in with Kerry’s bouquet and the lovely bridesmaids’ dresses. The day is pretty and feminine, luxurious and full of love and laughter – it’s a perfect way to end our week, and I hope you love this as much as I do!

It’s the loveliest thing to meet all the creative folks in the wedding industry, and while Helen England lives down in Kent and I’m up in the Lake District, I feel as though I know her from her little introduction video on YouTube. Seriously – all wedding people should do this – it’s ace. We’ll show you in a moment! Helen has joined English Wedding this month, but many of you will already know her from the weddings and shoots we’ve published in the past. I love her style and approach, and I really hope you will too!
