This post goes out to to all of you fabulous wedding photographers who are yet to get published on a top wedding blog. It’s scary stepping out of your comfort zone and reaching out to editors and bloggers. Who knows how many submissions they get?! What if you’re rejected… I mean, even if it’s just because they’re super busy, it’ll hurt to hear a ‘no’…. oh, but what if you get a YES when they see your work? Wouldn’t that be amazing?!

Balance is hugely important to me. I feel a responsibility as a wedding blogger – there has to be reality on here. As much as I love a styled photoshoot, and I do enjoy the fine art style of wedding blogs, it’s the reality of a wedding that thrills me. There’s the beautiful bride, the gorgeous details and all the elegant styling of course. But on the day, there’s the excitement. There’s that pure excitement and overwhelm and the buzz and nervousness of a wedding day. I’m sure you’ve heard other couples say it all goes by in a blur – I know I have. It’s a whirlwind of people, of faces and hugs and having the best day ever with everyone you love all at once.

… because you can’t beat a llama surprise, right?! Honestly, this wedding is everything. Glowing with newly wedded happy vibes, Moran and Danny celebrate their love at Ashdown Park. Their day is magical, breathtaking, beautifully designed and brilliantly captured by our friend and English Wedding member Damion Mower Photography. Morag’s dress is exquisite, unique and different; from the fabulous Needle & Thread. The venue is oh so special – Ashdown Park is in the Ashdown forest, believed to be the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood (home of Winnie the Pooh!) – and the converted chapel with its stained glass windows is so enchanting all Morag & Danny had to do was add flowers – which, it has to be said, are stunning!

Hey lovelies! Did you have a wonderful weekend? Ours was a busy one celebrating my amazing stepdaughter’s birthday so I’m starting Monday feeling happily frazzled and all warm and happy inside. Today’s feature is a little different: as a blogger I’ve seen thousands of weddings from hundreds of photographers over the years, and I’m a huge admirer of the craftsmanship and skill of wedding photographers. I was chatting with Sussex wedding photographer and friend of English Wedding Martin Beddall a few weeks ago, and he very kindly agreed to do a little interview for me. His answers give a fascinating insight into reportage photography – one of my favourite wedding photography styles and one I’d love for all of you to consider for your weddings! I hope you enjoy reading this: of course all of the stunning images are by Martin Beddall Photography.
