This is the kind of wedding photography that will blow your mind. As Leanne and Mickey told me, as soon as they saw Robin Goodlad’s images they knew they’d found their wedding photographer – there was no need to look any further. There’s something incredibly beautiful about the balance of light and drama in these images; yet there’s also a stillness, a thoughtfulness to them. And of course, the wedding photographs you’re about to see capture the joy of our gorgeous couple’s wedding day, the love and the magic of it all. Join me, be swept away by their beautiful wedding day as you scroll through and read all about this beautiful Priston Mill wedding. All images by Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad. With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We met Robin at a wedding show in Bournemouth and we immediately loved his style. The quality of the finished products he had on display was so high that we didn’t need to look any further and booked him as soon as we could!

When I get a credit for “Beer” in a couple’s list of favourite suppliers, I know to expect a pretty special wedding. (Tip: there’s no place for Carling at weddings!) – and Rachel & Shaun’s day lives up to expectations, flies past them in a blaze of beauty and leaves me wanting more. Their day was epic. They’re a gorgeous couple, the vibe of the entire day is joyful – the smiles never stop from bridal prep through to the evening spent crowdsurfing. I love these two. All images are by Midlands wedding photographer and English Wedding member J S Coates Wedding Photography, who gets a glowing review from our happy couple!

We looked through loads of different local photographers’ websites and eventually narrowed it down to three, who we then met up with to see if we clicked. Jonathan had such a great attitude, and his relaxed style was exactly what we were after.

Robin Goodlad was recommended by our venue.

Hey lovely! How was your weekend? We’ve been loving the sunshine and laying a new floor while it rained… I guess we’re part of the army of DIYers since lockdown! Anyway – I wanted to begin Monday with a joyful, floral filled, summer wedding. Ruth and Richard’s day is just glorious, and Ruth is so incredibly beautiful. Theirs is a military wedding, classic and elegantly styled with greens, creams and a dash of pale blue (and don’t the bridesmaids look amazing?) Images are by Nisha Haq Photography – I’ll leave you with Ruth and Richard to tell you about their day!

Nisha was great! She was so friendly and bubbly. Richard didn’t actually meet her until the day but she put us both at ease and we are thrilled with the final results. I have already recommended Nisha to a friend who has booked her for next year.

If any of you lovelies are heading out to a wedding dress shop today, I hope you have as wonderful a time as Tilly did at Chilham Bridal Boutique!

Today’s wedding is another summery, graceful and beautiful day – styled in white and grey with gold accents – a beautiful match for Tilly’s amazing dress!

Hey lovely! We’re having a week full of weddings – it’s an absolute dream on the blog for me, and today’s couple Katie & Laurie are just stunning! They married in the Cotswolds and lovely Alicia from Red Maple Photography was there to capture their day. (I’m proud to say Red Maple Photography is an English Wedding member!) I LOVE all the styling touches by Kirsten from The Little Wedding Helper – and Wild & Co’s flowers are absolutely breathtaking. There’s a full supplier list below, and you can read all of Katie & Laurie’s reviews and recommendations in their English Wedding interview right here!

We were passed Alicia’s details by our wedding florist as she had worked with her previously. From our first conversation we knew immediately that she was who we needed on our special day. She is so personable, completely puts you and your guests at ease and and she took the most amazing photos that really captured our special day!

We came across Jen in a South West wedding magazine and were instantly drawn to her style.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Absolutely! Jen clearly LOVES what she does. She is very approachable and provides just the right level of contact before and after the big day. On the day she was really supportive, took everything in her stride and made it feel like she was honoured to be photographing our wedding. Jen captured some wonderful natural moments from the day, where those being photographed had no idea she was there – everything was just natural.

Happy Wednesday, you lovely you! It’s been a week of amazing weddings so far… and today’s is a shining star of a celebration which I just know you’ll adore. Stunning couple Kirsty & Ben were married in Devon on a glorious sunny day. Their day is fun, elegant and full of romance, with moments to make you smile and details to make you swoon! Kirsty’s dress is from Prudence Gowns, and Ben’s suit from Moss Bros. The lovely couple chose our friend and Somerset wedding photographer Simon Biffen Photography to capture their day.

We’re beginning the week with a heartwarming story of gorgeous couple Laura and Craig. The day before their wedding in 2018, Laura was taken ill and at the last minute they had to postpone their day. In the days when postponing a wedding was a rare thing, all of Laura and Craig’s suppliers were amazing: they rescheduled for the summer of 2019 and this gorgeous day happened. Laura is stunning, Craig her perfect match. The location (Lusty Glaze in Cornwall) is breathtaking and the styling touches for their beach wedding are adorable! All images are by lovely Alexa Poppe Photography.

From speaking to the venue and looking through the tags they placed on social media. Alexa’s pictures stood out, so we headed to her website and loved the pictures she’d shared there. It was just what we wanted natural and to let the venue stand out, plus nothing too posed.

As we head into the weekend I have one more breathtakingly beautiful wedding to share with you. Gorgeous couple Maureen & Liam tied the knot at Thornbury Castle in an elegant, sophisticated and joyful celebration with their closest family and friends.

We reviewed a number of photographers, but it came down to the connection we felt with Martin. Speaking with him felt like speaking with a friend, and it was clear that he shared our understanding that the candid moments between friends and loved ones were the most meaningful usually. He also had a gorgeous catalogue of work that had us feeling intrigued and eager to work with him.
