Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope you’re all doing ok. In case you missed it over the weekend, I wanted to share lovely Annabel’s Love My Dress update on covid and weddings, and all the amazing work the #whataboutweddings campaign is doing. Please read if you haven’t already – progress is being made, and this is super important. Meanwhile, I’d like to share a really special wedding with you today. Lovely couple Soma and Jonny were married in pre-pandemic times at Heaton House Farm, and our fabulous friend, English Wedding member and Somerset & UK wedding photographer Simon Biffen Photography was there to capture their day. The personal touches are inspired, the styling is fabulous, the bride and groom look AMAZING and the images are out of this world.
Hey lovelies, how are you doing? It’s been another rollercoaster weekend – I do hope you’re all getting through this ok. Can I share something beautiful to bring a smile? Stunning couple Adwoa and Jonny were married in safer times, and their spring wedding is full of joy, elegantly styled and a delight to see. I hope you love this as much as I do!

How did you choose your photographer?
They had photographed a friends wedding and came with a great recommendation.
Let’s start the week with a reminder of how amazing things used to be…. and a reminder that they WILL get back to normal. We don’t know when, but there WILL be hugs and parties and gatherings of favourite people and love and romance and just pure joy with bunches of happy humans all celebrating together. Hang in there, everyone… In the meantime let’s look back on a super glamorous and FUN wedding with our fabulous friends and London wedding photographers York Place Studios. Gorgeous Ally & Alex’s black tie wedding took place at Hedsor House – and despite the rain this gorgeous pair had a BLAST! I love how the story of their wedding builds in excitement and joy through their wedding photographs: from the nerves and closeness of Ally’s bridal prep through the romantic ceremony, super classy reception and the amazing party vibes at the end of the day. This is a beauty of a wedding!
When I spotted this wedding in our calendar for today I wanted to cartwheel down the street. It makes me SO happy! I absolutely love the joy and colour in today’s wedding – and beautiful Amo and Shayan are the absolute best! These two lovelies tied the knot at Elmore Court last summer, and chose the venue for its flexibility: to have a classic English wedding with big white dress and black tie, with a formal day reception… then transform the whole event into a vibrant and colourful Indian wedding reception complete with drummers and a fabulous party atmosphere. And boy, did they nail it or what?! Images are by Cotswolds Wedding Photographer Dan Morris, and I’ll leave you with lovely Amo and Shayan to tell you about their day!
I am THRILLED to be sharing this stunning wedding inspiration with you today. Not only is this all head over heels beautiful (Jasmine & Conor are gorgeous together, don’t you think?) I feel as though we’re turning a page to a new chapter for diversity on English Wedding. It’s been a while since I wrote about making some changes to become a more diverse wedding blog, and I’ve been searching for the perfect header image for the blog. The happy news is, we found it. And I’m going to LOVE looking at this every time I log on to the website! I hope you do too!
