One year… for so many reasons, it’s hard to believe it’s been a full twelve months since our lovely couple Rebecca & Tom celebrated their wedding – literally, the last wedding before lockdown. They married on the 29th of February, 2020 – an elegant and glitzy wedding in London. Rebecca is stunning in a Nicole Milano dress, and Tom’s Charles Tyrwhitt suit is perfect for their black tie occasion. Their cake is a beauty; the stationery exquisite and florals divine (Rebecca’s bouquet featured in our ‘20 best bouquets‘ piece a couple of weeks ago!) – All images are by our friend and talented London wedding photographer Amanda Karen.
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!
The age of black tie being a stuffy, strict dress code has really disappeared recently. As tastes have lent themselves more towards the kitschy, quirky and alternative, the tuxedo has moved with it.
These days, unless the dress code is marked as formal or strict black tie – or the bride and groom specify – you can have a bit more fun with the Tuxedo. Perhaps it’s a vintage do, calling for velvets and paisleys, or something a little more modern and sharp, calling for slim fits and sharp lapels.
Vicky and Ali tied the knot on New Year’s Eve – and what a celebration it was! Black tie styling, glorious details, everything so wonderfully elegant and with a splash of wow factor to mark the occasion. [I’ve been saving this winter wedding to share with you as I thought we’d be into cooler times by now… but hey, heatwave!] Anyways, I hope this stunning NYE wedding gets you all excited for 2021… let’s face it, I think we’re all done with 2020, right?! Images are by Berkshire wedding photographer Simon Biffen Photography. Simon’s an English Wedding member, and it’s great to share Vicky & Ali’s glowing review with you!

Morning my lovelies! I have a STUNNER of a winter wedding to share with you today – I don’t think I’ve ever seen quite so many beaming smiles from a wedding we’ve featured on English Wedding. Mike and Khiley are ultra sophisticated, sexy and chic – their wedding is one of those knock-your-socks-off occasions full of joy and happiness. I have a feeling we’re going to leave you glowing for the rest of the day.

We found Oliver on Instagram & immediately fell in love with his style. Fun, documentary style shooting but full of personality.
