Wait, what…. HOW is it Wednesday already?! I’m so glad this one crept up on me…. because I have an EPIC wedding to share with you today! Gorgeous Sarah and Kevin got in touch to share their day, and it’s absolutely beautiful. The dress, the FLOWERS – and everything about the day looks so perfect. All images are by lovely Hollie Carlin Photography, and I will hand over right now to our stunning bride to tell you more!

With love,

My husband and I got married last July and it was…. THE . BEST. DAY . EVER!!! We seriously couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect day, surrounded by friends & family (and most importantly the dog!), in the most gorgeous of venues, lavish florals, scrumptious food, an absolutely phenomenal band and the best of the British summer time weather!

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.

This is such a fabulous wedding, with some truly special personal touches and brilliant recommendations for exceptional wedding suppliers. All images are by super talented Thornbury Castle Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek, one of our favourite contributors and members of the blog. Martin gets a glowing review from the happy couple, which was heartwarming to read. Huge thanks (and happy anniversary, if a day or so late!) to lovely Maureen and Liam. Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!

How did you choose your photographer?

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.

Morning lovely! Today we have a family-oriented wedding which is as beautifully styled as can be. Gorgeous bride Laura married her love Billy at the Saddleworth Hotel, Oldham. They involved their twins in the day, with daughter Eva reading a poem for the ceremony and bringing a tear to everyone’s eye – the family pictures are some of my absolute favourites. Styling touches are kept simple and elegant in white with foliage detail, and the stunning photography is by Jo Bradbury.

I loved the photographs from Jo, there was lots of natural spontaneous moments that Jo captured. From start to finish Jo was brilliant on the day and took all the pressure off Billy and I, I loved the woodland shots.

I’m in love with today’s wedding. I’m in love with Gilly’s sparkly beautiful dress; I’m in love with the styling details and the story of Gilly and Den’s day. I’m in love with the gorgeous photography from lovely Hannah Larkin…. this is all just so wonderful and I have been ever so excited to share it with you! Before we dive into all the images though, I want to share something important with you.

Gilly told me she felt an enormous amount of pressure to have the most pinterest perfect styled wedding, because she thought that is what people would expect from her as a wedding planner. Den was amazing at keeping her grounded and reminding her that this was their day and they could do things however they liked.

I’m sharing this with you because Gilly and I both want to show that you can personalise your wedding too, so that your big day represents you as a couple. Don’t aim for perfect; instead, aim for a day which is personal, which says “THIS IS US!”

Hello lovelies, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have a beautiful wedding to share with you today: beautiful Sandie & Matt were married last September at The Ferry House Inn, and chose lovely Charlene Webb Photography to capture their day. Everything is elegant and carefully styled, the venue is pristine, and the beach shots are breathtaking! Sandie’s top tip is worth reading as well: “Mingle as a couple, rather than separately. Otherwise you’ll get so carried away chatting, that it’ll get to the end of the day when you realise you’ve spent barely any time together!” (a lesson learned at their engagement party!)

I hope this stunning wedding brightens your Monday and brings you some happiness and positive vibes! Stay safe,

With love,

Today’s stunning couple were married at Chippenham Park Hall in the springtime, and styled their day with the most incredible cherry blossom and pink peonies. Maryanne’s dress is incredible: the designer is Jenny Packham and the embroidery detail couldn’t be more perfect for the springtime! She looks beautiful – every bit the English springtime bride – and Adam her perfect match in his made to measure suit, bought in Dubai.

The colour theme was pink, white, green and gold. Both the marquee and church were covered in cherry blossom with real trees lining the aisle in the church. In the marquee the mixture of trees and hanging flowers from the ceiling was truly spectacular! The floral creations were the work of the amazing Lucy Vail. Maryanne told me her favourite flowers were the peonies and hydrangeas – the smells were simply divine!

If I could do one thing this Bank Holiday Monday it would be to whisk away all your worries and fill you with happy. These crazy, scary times won’t last forever, and if you’ve had to postpone your wedding until 2021 please, please look forward to your new date with absolute joy. My heart says 2021 is going to be an incredible year full of amazing wedding celebrations. Weddings like Ruth & Jonny’s. Weddings full of glorious love and laughter, and with a party to end all parties. This is epic, and I do hope it brings a smile to your day. Ruth and Jonny are just gorgeous; their day has everything – I’m in love with Ruth’s dress and all those stunning florals! All images are by one of our fave UK wedding photographers, lovely Warren from Howell Jones Photography.

With bank holiday love,

There are pooches in every picture, pretty much… which makes Emily & Joe’s day as adorable as any I’ve ever seen. These guys had the most joyful wedding in Dorset, focusing on family, fun, food and booze – and it’s EPIC! Their fabulous images are by our wonderful friend, English Wedding member and Lulworth Castle wedding photographer Linus Moran Photography. Emily is stunning in her gown by Nicola Anne Bridal, and Joe is dashing in an M&S morning suit with navy and gold bowtie.

Enjoy! This wedding is an absolute beauty. With love,

We were very much looking for more natural photos of our day rather than posed and having looked at many different options thought Linus’ photos were beautiful and exactly the style we liked.

Isn’t it cold this week?! I’ve gotten so used to all the glorious sunshine I’m having to layer up in jumpers again until we get a second wave of SUMMER! But in the meantime I’ve this glorious August wedding for you, full of sunny tropical florals and vibrant colours, with images by lovely English Wedding member Tara at Pudding & Plum Photography. Alex and Pete’s day is wonderful with some fabulous styling touches, and still brilliantly real and down to earth. The gorgeous happy couple celebrated their day at their family home, with a marquee reception and lots of lovely personal touches.

I love these two because their wedding is just so personal and full of the things they love – all the food was locally sourced, the gin was home made and they had a beer keg wall (which is just awesome. Keg walls are the future!) There’s a photo of villagers outside the church with a home made drinks station which is so charmingly English – and then a London bus to take guests to the reception. They had a Fijian choir – Alex spent some time in Fiji – and the tiki print on the cake and table cloths are Fijian inspired. The tropical florals add so much colour to the day – even Flick the dog wears a little floral collar.

Hey lovelies, how are you feeling after yesterday’s update? For me #stayathome still seems like the only possible way we can keep our loved ones safe – patience is the way to get there. Anyway… I have the loveliest wedding to share with you today. It’s a treat to be able to share these little reminders of ‘normal’ life: and Emma & Giles’s day had so many beautiful moments that make me smile. Their wedding style is classic and timeless, with some pretty personal touches (the little heather place settings are so cute!) and glorious images by our friends at Evolve Photography in Devon.

Stay safe, stay home. With love,

Evolve stood out to us when we performed website comparison and after seeing Mark’s portfolios that sealed the deal. We loved the way Evolve perfectly captured the emotion in each moment.

Hey lovelies, happy Monday! I hope you’re ok and have had a relaxing weekend. Shall we jump straight into weddings this week? I’m loving the escapism of seeing happy faces and human contact, even if it is on my screen! Today’s gorgeous couple were married last summer in the Kent countryside – their day is simple and elegant, incorporating Italian and English elements. The blue accents are just wonderful, and I love how the delicate blues match those glorious, sunny skies!

We were lucky to meet Natalie at a January wedding fair soon after we got engaged. We really liked her soft romantic photography style and her relaxed attitude!

From the moment Natalie arrived on our wedding morning she joined the wedding party effortlessly with her warm and chatty character. Then throughout the day she snapped away in the background capturing natural photos of our guests enjoying themselves. We weren’t really looking forward to the photo shoot but again Natalie made us feel at ease and we ended up really enjoying ourselves. We were really pleased with how our photos turned out and they captured memories from our special day perfectly!

A special treat for you this weekend to brighten up your Sunday! I just love the naturalness of gorgeous couple Kim & Graham’s photos as they walk through wildflower meadows on the evening of their wedding. We’ll have times like these again soon, lovelies! Hang in there… it’ll all be worth it for moments like these.

Kim & Graham tied the knot last August, at Wellington Barn in Wiltshire. They chose our lovely friend and Wiltshire wedding photographer Linus Moran to capture their day in his unmistakeable documentary style, and described their horses + motorbikes-themed wedding as a beautiful, happy, perfect, love, family, mad, epic, best, day, ever! The images tell their story perfectly…

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We were looking for a documentary style photographer who would capture natural photographs as things unfolded throughout the day, as neither the bride or groom enjoy posing for the camera! We came across Linus’ website on a web search and really loved all the beautiful photographs he had included in his portfolio. The images really stood out to any other work we’d seen, he seemed to have an eye for capturing very intimate and beautifully natural interactions and connections between people.
