After the year we’ve all had, it makes me so, so happy to be able to share real weddings. 2020 weddings were few and far between, but oh, the days which were able to go ahead as micro weddings have been SO special! Today we’re celebrating with beautiful Danielle and handsome husband Lewis, who were married in 2020. Their story is told in the loveliest photographs by English Wedding member Grace Elizabeth, a Devon wedding photographer. My heart goes out to Danielle and Lewis – having to postpone their wedding because of covid, and then changing dates so their micro wedding could go ahead, must have been so hard. It’s really heartwarming to hear how their suppliers pulled out all the stops to make this day happen. Please do scroll all the way through for Grace Elizabeth’s fabulous golden hour portraits which capture the love of these two so perfectly!

The moments of joy that happened in 2020 feel more significant than ever before. Those rare weddings where couples got to say their vows, the celebrations of love amongst the tragedy of the pandemic… these feel sweeter than ever, and so beautiful. Meredith and Charlie’s wedding had only 15 guests, with loved ones tuning in via zoom from all over the world. They married at Priston Mill in Bath, and chose Somerset wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day. The images are outstanding, and Martin gets a glowing review from the happy couple below! This stunning pair worked with some fabulous wedding suppliers, all mentioned in their interview especially for English Wedding.

Over the Christmas break I’ll be sharing some favourite weddings over on our Instagram – so do, do catch me over there, as it’s going to be beautiful!! Here on the blog, this is our parting shot for 2020… and a stunning, gorgeous wedding to take us all the way through to 2021. I’VE NEVER LOOKED FORWARD TO A DATE MORE IN MY LIFE!

Today’s wedding inspiration is dreamily dark and daring – perfect for the occasion! Tonight – if legends are to be believed – the gates to other worlds are opened and spirits can pass between… Also, we get to light candles, dress up and watch a cracking horror. (has anyone seen The Haunting of Bly Manor?) In the meantime… wedding blogs are going to be rather fabulous today so do check them all – I’d like to think lovely Noemi at Thyme Lane Photography has come up trumps with this AMAZING inspiration filled with smoke bombs, dark sparkles and the most incredible styling creations!

Morning lovely! Aren’t the autumn vibes from this photo just glorious? I’m thrilled to bring you stunning Lana and James’s wedding in Cornwall today. The fabulous pair were married waaaaay before lockdown, and their 1940s inspired wedding is glamorous, sophisticated and full of love and warmth. All images are by our lovely English Wedding member and friend Tracey Warbey Photography. With love,“english

I loved Tracey’s candid and natural style – her photographs look happy and spontaneous! When we met she was very down-to-earth, friendly and enthusiastic which I loved.
