It’s really important to us at English Wedding that we feature REAL couples, REAL celebrations and achievable, real-life wedding inspiration. We like to balance all the out-there ideas and alternative, opulent inspiration with a reassurance that EVERY wedding is beautiful. Sophie and George chose a very traditional day with classic styling touches, and celebrated with a reception at Batemans Brewery. They chose Lincolnshire wedding photographer Carl at 166 Photography to capture their day, and it’s all kinds of wonderful.

Wedding photographer review

Carl and Lisa were absolutely brilliant. We are so pleased with all of our photos. I can’t recommend them enough.

When it comes to speeches on a wedding day, most of them are traditionally from the male perspective. The standard format for wedding speeches is: the father of the bride, followed by the groom’s speech and ending with the ritual humiliation that is the best man’s speech. Women’s voices rarely feature.

I adore Kerry’s dress and bouquet and how today’s gorgeous bride and groom are both smiling, grinning and laughing all day long. Kerry & James’ wedding was perfect – the sun shone gloriously on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year so far and Kerry looked ridiculously stunning in her blush pink gown.
