Today’s beautiful, modern and romantic wedding is from London. Octavia and Steve make a stunning couple, and the elegant decor and styling and the most wonderful atmosphere make this day truly special. We’ve loved scrolling through London wedding photographer Ben Pipe‘s images of the day – and we’re thrilled to share Octavia’s story of such an amazing wedding.
We got married at St Nicolas’ Church in Chiswick before punting down the Thames to my parent’s home in Hammersmith where I grew up with my five siblings. The house was decorated with wild flowers and ivy for a beautiful natural, undone aesthetic.
We’re excited to share today’s amazing wedding with such a beautiful bride and handsome groom, and an awe-inspiring location. Becky and Andy were married at Bristol’s Clifton Observatory, and chose top Bristol wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day.

So many things come to mind when I see a wedding captured by London wedding photographers York Place Studios. Authenticity is one; the fact that a wedding is a real day, happening in the real world and filled with all the wonderful happy chaos of daily life. Sometimes I think the wedding media can pile the pressure on to make a wedding look like a day you can engineer to be perfect – but any event with joyful people and celebration is bound to be full of unexpected little moments. That’s the way a wedding should be: happy, fun, and all about the people.
A wonderfully chic wedding in Hampshire, with exquisite styling and a lovely bride and groom. Stunning florals and a fabulous colour palette “we chose burgundy as our main wedding colour based on how good Dan looked in a burgundy tie 🙂” – this relaxed wedding in a beautifully modern venue is everything. Huge thanks and congratulations to gorgeous couple Carly & Dan, and our heartfelt thanks to London wedding photographer Kristian Leven for sharing the images of their day.
Dan and Carly have two great pieces of advice for other couples:
Doing things differently will make your wedding unforgettable. I’ve been so excited to share Olivia & Andy’s day because they changed every expectation about what a wedding ‘should’ be. Their ceremony location is incredible, but not only that: they were married at sunrise. Every little bit of this wedding is just amazing, and we just know you’ll love it. We’ll share photos over the weekend on our instagram – do follow @englishweddingblog and of course the couple’s fantastic Cambridge wedding photographer @damien_vickers_photography as well!
