As we come to the end of the year, we have some of our most beautiful weddings to share with you. I’ve been excited to publish Chris and Sarah’s day – the romance and love are just amazing, and the images that capture their day are outstanding. This is a London wedding which will stick in my mind for a long time to come for so many reasons. I really do hope you love it too. Claire's signature

I was over the moon when Nik from Trilion Productions got in touch to share this lovely little micro wedding with us. Gorgeous couple Roanne and Rey were married on Roanne’s birthday in July, celebrating with closest family and friends – and their adorable little boy is the star of the show! Roanne’s dress is wonderful for a summer wedding, with a beautiful skirt silhouette – I love it! Styling was kept elegant and minimal, with a simple calla lily bouquet. I fell in love with this wedding for the glorious images, and the joy and love which shines so strongly through the images. In 10, 20, 50 years time looking back on this day will be as perfect as any big wedding could ever be. Congratulations Roanne & Rey, we LOVE your wedding!“english

Checklist for if you’re getting married on a really hot day (like you’ll know, but…) fans. Ice lollies. Flip flops (including mens’). And now that’s all clear, here’s a wonderfully authentic Islington wedding to make your eyes and hearts happy. Our friends and London wedding photographers York Place Studios describe it as “streety” – a wedding photography style you may not have heard of until today. Street wedding photography is a rare gem to stumble across on wedding blogs, but amongst wedding photographers it’s the gold standard – and York Place are mindblowingly brilliant in their field. You’ll see…

Believe it or not, 2020 didn’t invent micro weddings. We’ve actually been in love with these wonderful, smaller weddings for a few years already! I worry a little that the name “micro wedding” will become synonymous with the word “pandemic”. I’d love to come up with a word for these incredibly joyful, intimate weddings that captures their magic, because they’re bursting so full of heart and soul they deserve to be celebrated and dreamed of as much as any big ‘dream wedding’ ever is.
