Gorgeous white and green styling for a Brympton House wedding with Martin Dabek Photography (27)
FEATURED

Hey lovely! I have a treat for you today – gorgeous bride Meg and her handsome new hubby Jack celebrated their wedding at Brympton House, a stunning venue which Country Life described as the most beautiful house in England. Our friend and Somerset wedding photographer Martin Dabek knows it well: he captured Meg and Jack’s day in his fabulous style, recording the wonderful styling details, memorable moments and atmosphere of the day perfectly. And that Phillipa Lepley gown…

The venue, Brympton House, was beautiful in its own right. However, the styling team were able to add so many extra touches that bought the home to life and fit perfectly with the themes. Emily, who does the Brympton House flowers arranged all the flowers for us. She was brilliant and added extra touches, such as a personalised ribbons to the bouquets. We wanted lots of flowers and folliage, which was all a bit messy and relaxed. Everything we asked for she did wonderfully.

Maunsel House in Somerset - see inside a real wedding with Linus Moran Photography (37)

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. We’ve had a brilliant couple of days visiting family and friends on the Cumbrian coast, and I’m ready for a week full of weddings, style ideas and glorious images to enjoy! We begin with gorgeous couple Melanie and Chad, who married at Maunsel House in the autumn. Lovely Somerset wedding photographer Linus Moran Photography sent this one in, and the super lovely couple have shared lots of fantastic tips and supplier recommendations with you too! Can you believe Melanie bought her flowers from a wholesaler and made her own bouquet?! Isn’t it beautiful?

The only decorations we wanted to do were in the pergola in the grounds of the house and even then we didn’t want to take away from the natural surroundings and the vines climbing the wooden pillars. So we just put together simple hanging glass baubles with dark green moss and led tea lights. Our place names and table names were all handmade, as well as all our flower arrangements and bouquets. My mum made a delicious Somerset apple chutney to go with our cheese tower cake, made using Bramley apples donated from her neighbour’s garden. Our flower girls’ crowns were made from bits and pieces from hobbycraft with help from my sister. We loved coming up with the ideas and designs and to have the personal touches all come together on the day made it that extra bit special.

How did you choose your photographer?

We tried a range of methods, from googling and using wedding supplier websites but in the end it was searching #devonweddingphotographer on Instagram that led us to Anthony. We loved Anthony’s style and after exploring his website of work as well, we arranged to meet with him.

Reportage wedding photography has my heart. In the 10 years since English Wedding began I’ve seen thousands of weddings. They all have a story, they’re all personal and unique and beautiful. And the images which capture the spirit and story of a wedding are the images which will stand the test of time. Always.

So it’s with genuine pleasure that I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite reportage wedding photographers in the UK. Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall specialises in reportage photography (otherwise known as documentary wedding photography, or wedding photojournalism) – his website is a brilliant place to go to see what reportage wedding photography is all about.

Wedding photography for couples who don’t want all that old fashioned, traditional setup stuff – but instead, want their wedding day captured in a series of natural, evocative images, that capture the atmosphere of the day. The story of the day. Natural, honest, unobtrusive reportage wedding photography.

Happy Monday, lovelies! How was your weekend? Did you see our FOUR features on English Wedding this weekend? Huge thanks to Jordanna Marston Photography for sharing her best 10 London wedding venues with us on Saturday – that was fab! And we LOVED the sustainable wedding inspiration shoot on Saturday morning. Lovely Charlene‘s wedding videos (Love Gets Sweeter) made the blog look so lovely on Sunday. Meanwhile, we have been sofa shopping and then walking in the mountains… a weekend of two halves! I’m pooped – but happy to be at my desk again and ready to share some wedding loveliness with you today!

Jenn and Jon were married in September at Barley Wood in Somerset, and chose lovely English Wedding member Howell Jones Photography to capture their day. Jenn told us the venue is owned by the YMCA and all the proceeds go back into the charity. They train apprentices on site who look after the grounds and the venue – they have a really relaxed, laid back attitude, but give great constructive advice and support.

It’s always the images that get me; the beautiful photography and the intuitive captures. With York Place Studios that’s always the hugest thing. Then there’s Beth and Tim – a couple whose love, laughter and secret glances steal my heart. They’re adorable, romantic, heartwarming and surrounded by everyone they hold dearest at their Star Inn wedding in Harome.

Now this wedding is extraordinary for one more reason: Beth and Tim got married at 4 o’clock on a December day. Their ceremony and reception were to be lit by candlelight – which meant hiring top UK wedding photographers York Place Studios was a must. To take great photos in low light requires a ridiculous amount of skill and absolute top-of-the-range cameras. Prewarned, and relishing the challenge, the guys from York Place captured this day in their inimitable documentary wedding photography style. The images are bursting full of treasured memories, love and a sense of fun.

I thought we all deserved a little treat this Sunday afternoon, so gather round and snuggle up for an extra special dose of wedding lovely. Our fabulous friend Amanda Karen Photography sent in this beauty of a shoot and I’ve fallen for it hook, line and sinker. The styling is exquisite; the colour palette is fabulous. This is a shoot in two halves: the copper dress takes my breath away and I’d love to see more brides wearing such a bold statement dress… but if that’s not for you then the bridal jumpsuit is unique, different and 100% on trend for 2019! Both outfits are by the always fabulous Charlie Brear.

A beautiful barn wedding space - Axnoller Barn in Dorset, with Linus Moran Photography (44)

Today’s gorgeous couple chose an outstanding venue for their wedding weekend, styling their day with help from friends and family and choosing their suppliers carefully to create an amazing wedding day. Our lovely friend and Dorset wedding photographer Linus Moran Photography was at West Axnoller Farm to capture the day from beginning to end, and his photos are just wonderful. Michelle’s dress is stunning, and her review of bridal boutique The Wedding Dress Dorset makes me want to sing their praises from the rafters! This is a fabulous, elegant and classic spring wedding and I do hope you love it as much as I do.

How did you choose your photographer?

We first met Linus at Kingston Mauward wedding fair and then researched his work on his website. We got a range of prices from small independent photographers and larger businesses, but we wanted a photographer with a less formal style who focused more on taking un-posed photos as they happened, as well as having the opportunity to film the day. We also thought his films really captured the emotions of the day and that’s what sealed the deal for us.

Hello there beautiful! I hope you’re having a wonderful day and staying snuggled up and warm inside! While our hearts and minds are full of Christmas, I have the loveliest wedding to share with you today. Issy and Alistair married at Milling Barn in Buntingford at Christmas time and chose lovely Becky Harley as their wedding photographer. The bouquet and styling are insanely beautiful, Issy is stunning in a modern style Maggie Sottero dress and Alistair oh so handsome in his RAF uniform. There are berries and holly and evergreens galore in this wonderful winter barn wedding, and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Our wedding venue was Milling Barn, Bluntswood Hall, Buntingford – a wonderfully rustic barn with plenty of countryside charm. The barn is beautifully decorated anyway so we wanted to enhance what was already there. We cut down ivy from the garden and wound it around the staircase, bannisters, and some hoops hanging on the walls. We bought a mistletoe ball which hung from the ceiling in the ceremony room, and had a big branch of mistletoe hanging above everyone in the reception room. Apart from that we just had LED candles lining the aisle and berry-lined hearts on the walls.
