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.

Good morning lovely, and welcome to today’s pretty, sunlit, beautifully-dressed summer wedding! Gorgeous couple Carly and Steve tied the knot in August, choosing our fabulous friend and Thornbury Castle wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day.

The florals are divine, and Claire from The Wilde Bunch (who Martin recommended to Carly and Steve) gets the loveliest review from our happy couple.

Sometimes I see a wedding and it looks the most fun a couple has ever had in their lives. Sometimes the joy and excitement spills through in every beautiful detail, and I spend ages just gazing at all the gorgeous photos to see little details and love and laughter and grinning back at my screen. Mike and Kelly are one of those amazing couples you can just see loved every moment of their best day ever, and I’m so happy they chose our fabulous friend and exceptional documentary wedding photographer Linus Moran to capture their wedding.

This truly is a wedding with everything: a boat covered in flowers, glorious sunshine and face glitter. A stunning bride beaming with joy, and her groom glowing with pride and happiness. The emotion of the day is pure magic – the love between this amazing couple is just magical to see.

Good morning, beautiful! I hope you’ve had the loveliest of weekends. I taught a really relaxed and fun calligraphy class in Manchester on Friday – the sweetest bunch of students and so talented I was barely needed! Then a weekend at Lancaster music festival… it’s been a fun one, but boy am I sleepy this morning! Today’s wedding though… oh this has brightened my heart already. It’s perfect. Beautiful bride Beth married her handsome hubby Lewis in Wales, styling their day with simple white and green touches – and bridesmaids in trouser suits kicking up a storm!! I just love this and know you will too. Thank you to our wonderful friend and sponsor, Hensol Castle wedding photographer Martin Dabek for sending us such a stunning wedding to share!

Lewis was an usher at his friend’s wedding a few years back and recommended Martin. Lewis is a bit camera shy but said he barely noticed Martin was taking any photos at all. His unobtrusive, in-the-moment approach was exactly what we were looking for.

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!

I just love how today’s beautiful and intimate wedding travels from city chic to seaside bliss in just a few stunning frames! Beautiful bride Jade wears a minimal and graceful dress from The Pretty Dress company and Gboyega is super stylish in a fitted suit from T.M. Lewin. They describe their September wedding as private, simplistic, intimate, meaningful… and windy! And they chose the perfect Dorset wedding photographer – our lovely friend and English Wedding member, Linus Moran Photography (www.linusmoranphotography.co.uk)

With no theme in mind, Jade and Gboyega embraced the vintage and rustic feel to their reception venue (The Pig on the Beach, at Studland). They had use of the roundhouse and summer house, which they were able to decorate with fresh flowers the day before. Surrounded by trees and with a view of the sea, the natural location on the Dorset coast gives this wedding a destination flavour – and it’s beautiful.

Tess and Tom’s February wedding has so many layers to it: there’s the romance between our gorgeous couple. Then there’s Tess’s Dad’s story (you’ll see what I mean when you start scrolling!), which totally captivated me (and shows just what your wedding day means to the ones you love!) There’s a wonderful camaraderie amongst the beautiful bridesmaids, who shimmer and sparkle through all the photos! And I love how there’s a lovely humour in the day – as Tess puts it, “who doesn’t like a Colin?!

The images are simply breathtaking – and Tess and Tom’s review for Northbrook Park wedding photographers MIKI Studios is a joy to read! (You’ll find more on MIKI Studios in the English Wedding Directory – they’re based in the UK and travel worldwide capturing beautiful weddings like Tess and Tom’s.)

So many of our brides and grooms on the blog say the best thing about their wedding was having everyone they loved all in one place at the same time: it’s a once-in-a-lifetime scenario and should be treasured! In Chris and Arabella’s case, the temptation to do what friends do when they get together was too much: Chris is a climber, and his friends arrived… so, rocks!!!

That was the morning of the wedding, and luckily our fabulous friends from York Place Studios went along to capture the action (literally). I guess there aren’t so many wedding photographers who’d do this quite so brilliantly – and that’s what makes Dom & Liam (the funnest sister & brother wedding photographer combination you’ll ever come across!) absolutely perfect for today’s wedding. They’re based in Yorkshire and photograph weddings throughout the UK, as well as destination weddings. Their documentary style of wedding photography always reminds me that weddings are about people, emotions, interactions between your loved ones – and those are the moments you’ll look back on (through your wedding album) and LOVE to bits in years to come.

Today’s wedding is wonderfully sunny and warm, beautifully styled and sooo romantic – it’s absolutely wonderful and I’ve been so excited to share this with you! Gorgeous couple Amy and Niall were married in Somerset, and styled their day around their backgrounds: as Amy is from Yorkshire and Niall is from Wales they incorporated both of these into their day.

They chose the tythe barn at Priston Mill as their wedding venue, and our lovely friend and sponsor Martin Dabek Photography (who comes recommended by Priston Mill) as their wedding photographer. So grab a cuppa and join us as we enjoy scrolling through the beautiful photographs of this rustic, relaxed, natural wedding day, full of love and laughter!

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.

A black tie wedding… the most amazing boho dress covered in delicate sparkles… and more fun and laughter and PARTYING than you’d think you could fit into one day. This wedding – as they always are when our friends and sponsors at York Place Studios are involved – is an absolute blast of beautiful and playful, and I LOVE it.

The Normans venue is a charming, rustic space on a working farm just outside York. Covered in twinkling fairy lights, it’s welcoming and picture perfect inside and out. The courtyard is wonderful on a sunny day, and as evening sets guests can relax in the cow shed (snug) or grain shed (ultimate party space!) – take a look at http://thenormansweddings.co.uk

We cannot thank you enough, we have been screeching with laughter, I can only imagine what you guys witnessed that night!

We just love all these photos so much, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. They are the perfect end to an amazing year, and they are exactly how we wanted the wedding captured!
