This one’s special. Every once in a while I’m sent a wedding which absolutely blows me away – the romance of it all, the couple, the photography and the styling – and it goes STRAIGHT into my secret favourite weddings folder, ready to share again at Christmas. And on that note… hello Laura & Rob! These two just smile all day long. Their (safely before covid) wedding is joyful, beautiful and deliciously elegant with stunning styling touches. And a little surprise – well, a big surprise – instead of a wedding car. It’s like the biggest alternative-to-a-wedding-car we’ve ever seen, and it’s extra wonderful because of the story behind it. Oh, and one of our fave photographers gets a glowing review from the happy couple: lovely Midlands wedding photographer J S Coates was a big part of Laura & Rob’s day, and his photos are just incredible. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Weddings go by in a flash and a blur because there is SO MUCH going on. It might feel like 10 minutes, but the story of your day in pictures will be a revelation. So many of my wedding photographer friends say they struggle to send a selection of just 60 images for a blog post. I can totally see why – and today I’m really feeling it! Hannah & Jamie’s (pre-covid) village hall wedding is summed up beautifully in our header pic: it’s ALL about the people they love, and who love them.
An adorable couple, the prettiest bride, and picture perfect styling touches for a castle themed wedding. Jade and Alan were married in 2019, and I’ve had the loveliest time this morning scrolling through all of their images. There is so much inspiration here, and the venue is romantic as can be. I love that these two did things their way: their readings are really personal and special, and they chose not to have a first dance – dancing in front of everyone just wasn’t their thing, so why do it?! Kent brides and grooms, I hope you’ll love seeing all the wonderful moments from this perfect February wedding. It’s an absolute beauty!
A joyful 2019 wedding with a traditional ceremony in a 600 year old church. Beautiful bride Anoushka wears a bespoke Mona Vora gown with lace detail and a stunning back. Ivy trails from a loose bouquet full of foliage with sea holly, salix (willow) and blue / grey leaves – the flowers and foliage are wonderfully different. An elegant tiered cake with gold accents captures the autumn vibe of the day – as do the fabulous images by lovely Jessica Grace Photography, who gets a fantastic review from our happy couple Laurie & Anoushka!

A wonderfully elegant Shustoke Barn wedding from back in 2019. Bride Laura is stunning in a dress from our faves and English Wedding members TDR Bridal – Alex her perfect match in a unique and super stylish Lambretta suit. The barn is beautifully styled with floral chandeliers by Penny Johnson Flowers, who also comes highly recommended by our gorgeous bride and groom. This is everything a barn wedding should be and more! I hope you love it. Have a wonderful Monday!
