Every wedding is a collection of wonderful little stories. We spend months planning the tiniest little details and styling the day until we’re ready to pop – but in the end, every bride and groom tell me it’s about the people, the love and laughter, and having everyone you love in the same room to celebrate with you. So of course, your wedding photography is all about capturing the moments – and London wedding photographer Nick Tucker does that with a brilliantly unique style. He’s a fashion photographer who focuses on telling your story – and I love that his images have a sense of humour, a sense of occasion and above all a thoughtfulness and sense of fun! I’m delighted to welcome Nick Tucker Photography to English Wedding today. We’ll be hearing more from Nick in 2019 – I can’t wait! For now though, Nick’s here to introduce himself to you lovely lot. Enjoy!

Hello lovelies and happy Friday! I’m currently in Manchester prepping for (lunch) my calligraphy workshop tomorrow – it’s a sell out and I’m so excited! – but couldn’t leave English Wedding without a gorgeous feature for your Friday… and oh my, this wedding is special! Kate is more stunning than I have words for, in a beautiful Suzanne Neville gown. She tried on over 100 wedding dresses… and I’m so glad she found this divine design from Suzanne’s collection because it is breathtaking.

Let’s not forget the gorgeous groom – Jonathan’s black tie wedding look is just perfect: the tux is from Hugo Boss, with a bow tie from Tom Ford – I love this American wedding trend, which we’re seeing more and more in the UK these days. Oh, and before I forget – that opulent flower wall? Hired from Silks in Bloom. Isn’t it amazing?!

Beautiful bride Polly and gorgeous groom Jon married at The Ivy Chelsea Garden – a vibrant space for a couple who are just bursting with personality. Their day is a breath of pure joy – the relaxed and intimate celebrations are all the more stunning for the spontaneous laughter that breaks out in occasional images, and I just love seeing the expressions of the entire bridal party – it’s a day which is filled with happiness, and beautifully captured by lovely Jonny Barratt Photography. Oh, and it’s totally convinced me about veils. Veils are ahmaaaaaazing…

Stylish, relaxed photos is what we wanted and Jonny delivered 200%. Despite the dining room being intimate he managed to almost go unnoticed (in the nicest way possible) and still deliver an amazing result.

We both felt quite anxious about having a camera on us all day but Jonny was discreet and the nicest person we could have asked for. Everyone commented on how great he was.

Classic elegance for a Royal Holloway wedding with Dale Stephens Photography (7)

David and Louise’s wedding is classic, elegant and makes the most of a magnificent venue – the picture gallery at Royal Holloway, University of London. Louise is stunning in an Enzoani gown with a pretty lace layer and delicate straps – a beautiful summer dress. Decoration and styling touches are minimal, with a simple colour palette of navy blue and ivory. Their cake is gorgeous – made by Louise’s friend and former housemate – “she did such an amazing job and we loved it!

“One of the reasons we chose Royal Holloway was that the Picture Gallery where we had our wedding breakfast didn’t need any decoration beyond the tables because you weren’t allowed the touch the expensive paintings! We did decorate our evening reception room though and ordered balloons as well as bringing down the table decorations from the dinner. My aunt also made some lovely bunting to hang.

Gloriously eclectic and fun Soho wedding with Becky Harley Photography (33)
FEATURED

Chloe and Sam’s chic Soho wedding is wonderfully non-traditional. I love Chloe’s approach to wedding planning – she avoided the traditional suppliers and sought out more unusual things to style their day. The venue (The Union Club) is fabulous – the surroundings just seem to suit Sam and Chloe perfectly, and I think the shots of them just loving walking to the venue and in the surrounding area are unique and fascinating! Flowers are by Wild at Heart and Chloe’s dress is from Phase Eight – doesn’t she look incredible?

My wedding dress was sparkly, chic and classic and fitted so nicely. We found it on a high street bridal window shopping spree to generate inspiration and it turned out to be the one. It was also under budget, I initially set out for a different design, I really wanted a loose, boho type dress with long sleeves but couldn’t find any ready to wear ones that I liked. It’s from Phase Eight at John Lewis bridal in Oxford Street.

Today’s wedding is one of those stunning celebrations which mixes traditional elegance with contemporary flavour. Laura’s dress is divine – both bride and groom are gorgeous and the little details of their day, especially the Scottish touches, make it something really special. The venue is the Caledonian Club, and the photographer is lovely Ben Pipe Photography.

Our florist was Lalage Barran Flowers. Lalage was introduced to me by St Columba’s Church where we were married. I knew that I wanted lots of flowers and had a good idea of colours, but I know nothing about the types of flowers themselves so Lalage was excellent at guiding me. After a few meetings, she was able to create exactly what I had hoped for. Lalage also made a mock-up of my bouquet for me a few weeks before the wedding day which really helped to reassure me that it would look as I expected on the day.

Kate & Chris were married at Hampton Court House in a decadent, dramatically styled wedding. Kate wore a gown by Sally Eagle and Valentino Rockstud pumps. They exchanged vows at her family church before heading on to Hampton Court House, of course via Bushy Park for photographs. The whole day was relaxed and stylish. Guests were treated to music from a quartet, before heading to the dramatically styled dining room for the breakfast.

I had a slightly different style of wedding dress in mind but I was drawn to this one as soon as I saw it, and when I tried it on at Luella’s Bridal it felt perfect. My mum and maid of honour both did these little intakes of breath when I came out in the sample! I only went to one bridal boutique as on my first visit I narrowed it down to two, and by my second visit I knew which one it was to be. The designer is Sally Eagle Bridal, and I also wore a bolero, handmade by Sewn Right with material from Sally Eagle (to match the dress).

These two gorgeous people know how to get married in style. I was over the moon to feature their joyful elopement photos last year; roll on a few months and I’m even happier to see and share their fabulous wedding blessing and party with you all. I’m 100% of the opinion that a wedding doesn’t have to be formal, or follow traditions or rules, or include even the slightest little nod to etiquette… all that matters is that you LOVE getting married and you celebrate in the way that means most to you, as a couple.

It’s a total bonus that Nick and Kristina’s celebrations look so amazing! I hope you love their story as well: they’re brilliant people who both work for non-profit organisations and it fits so perfectly that they chose to celebrate at The Cinema Museum – a venue I’d love to see saved for future generations as well! It’s where Charlie Chaplin grew up, and the museum is in desperate danger of being evicted and the building left to an uncertain fate. You can find out more here: http://www.cinemamuseum.org.uk

Sam is an old friend, who has been taking really lovely wedding photos for the past couple of years. We knew he would be right for it: intelligent, with a great eye, and he would be a lovely presence at the wedding, as well as understanding what we wanted.

We were overjoyed with Sam. His pictures are spontaneous, detailed and full of joy. We spoke to him and gave him some ideas, which he totally got. Everyone at the wedding found him unobtrusive, fun and friendly, and he never made anyone feel like they were being marched around for photographs. But he did suggest some ideas to us which we are really glad about. His pictures have brought wonderful reactions from friends and family, and we love them.

Today’s beautiful bride Alexandra describes her wedding to Elikem as “a collage of vintage pastels, silver screen, Motown and total euphoria!” – don’t you just love that?! Their day was themed around Motion Pictures. “El and I are huge film fans so our invites looked like movie tickets and each table was named after one of our favourite films.”

Due to the time of year I researched and suddenly came across the idea of having dried flowers which were so different. I had never seen a Bride before with dried flowers and the bouquets on The Artisan Dried Flower Company‘s website were stunning. The flowers really complimented El’s tweed suit too.

Handmade is a lifestyle choice Amelia Barnes made a long time ago. The organiser of The Creative Boutique Wedding Fair studied as a fine artist, and has tried her hand at many crafts while working as an art teacher. When Amelia got married she really came to appreciate how tricky it can be to find stylish, handmade wedding pieces – and so she went out of her way to track down and source amazing suppliers to find unique wedding ideas which were truly reflective of her.

I spent months and months searching online for a vintage wedding dress and I just couldn’t find anything that would fit me or my style…. All dresses I looked at in shops were made in China and had a six month leadtime. Being fairly headstrong, I objected to bossy women telling me what I should have for my wedding day!

While planning her wedding Amelia realised most of what was on offer was part of a package deal, or mass produced for the wedding market. It was the exact opposite of what she was looking for: high quality suppliers with a focus on true craftsmanship.

However stunning the location or decoration, it’s the bride and groom, their family and friends that really make for a great wedding, everything else is secondary – so say the fabulous documentary wedding photographers York Place Studios.

Today’s wedding has an amazing little ninja page boy in a head to toe gold costume (awesome), an actual bandstand, some bemused pic-nic-ers (how on earth do I spell that?!) and the most gorgeous bride and groom in like, ever. Plus the best atmosphere you could dream of… and it all comes across so beautifully in the photos.

The venue? Battersea Park Pump House. What an amazing spot to get married! Although really – as the happiness shining out from today’s pics totally shows – it doesn’t matter where you’re married, because it’s just all about sharing the best moment of your life with the folks you love.
