Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend?

After something of a lazy weekend spent relaxing with family, I’m hitting the ground running with a stunning, knock your socks off kinda wedding today. The florals take centre stage – as they tend to, if you’re lucky enough to be able to celebrate your wedding in your own garden. Nick and Amanda did just that – they put all the flowers together for the tables, made their own invitations and wedding favours and even a balloon arch! Images are by our lovely friend and English Wedding Directory member Siobhan H Photography.

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day, wherever you are. Do you still have sunshine? I think it’s deserted us here, which makes me even more happy to have a ton of beautiful weddings to share with you this month – and today’s is a dream.

Jen and Adam were married at Houchins Farm, Coggeshall, Essex. They’d originally planned to get married abroad but after spending the last two years traveling together they decided to come back to their roots to celebrate their marriage where they grew up, surrounded by close friends and family. Their wedding photographer was none other than our lovely friend Kathryn Hopkins (whose beautiful pics you’ll have seen gracing the front cover of the English Wedding Bible).

Hey lovelies! How are you all this beautiful Thursday morning? I’m already planning the blog for August – it’s a crazy busy summer of weddings which is wonderful 🙂 If there are any photographers out there who’d love to see their favourite summer weddings on the blog, do get in touch! I also have a handful of sponsor slots available from today, which I’m offering a lovely saving on – so pop me an email over if you’d like to know more (info@english-wedding.com) But most importantly – Amy and Mark. These two are just gorgeous, and their day is full of individuality and character – it’s just perfect. Images are by lovely English Wedding sponsor and Hertfordshire wedding photographer Becky Harley – and they’re outstanding. Becky gets a glowing review from our happy couple, who have shared all the details of their day with us here. I hope you love this one as much as I do! 

Happy June! Where did May go… is it just me or is 2018 flying by?! I’m delighted to be sharing a wedding from one of our exclusive little team of sponsors on the blog today – lovely Birmingham wedding photographer Clive Blair. Clive’s a documentary-styled wedding photographer, based in Birmingham and working throughout the UK and abroad for couples who want a relaxed and informal style of wedding photography. We think he’s fab!

James and Lizzie married at Bordesley Park Farm in Beoley Vale, Worcestershire – an exclusive wedding venue surrounded by 500 acres of beautiful countryside giving the perfect backdrop for a wonderful wedding. The weather was gloriously sunny from beginning to end – and Clive’s golden hour shots of the happy couple are just breathtaking!

I love the atmosphere of this wedding – the love and especially the laughter and enjoyment comes across so strongly in Rianna and Will’s images – it’s all just gorgeous and totally captivating. This wedding was sent in by James Richard Photography – we think he’s amazing!

This is a wedding with more of a personal touch than so many – yes, Rianna & Will made individual potted succulent wedding favours for their 100 guests, but as lovely as that is, there’s more. The wedding dress was made and designed by Rianna and her mum. It’s wonderfully pretty, a perfect fit – and the loveliest and most meaningful thing I think I’ve ever seen since the English Wedding Blog was born.
