I can’t resist a little teaser: can anyone guess the wedding location from this photograph? It’s a bit of a surprise!
Thanks to everyone who guessed – the answer is here: There are flamingos in London
I think you’ll love this wedding. It’s Kat & Rich’s day at Bury Court Barn in Hampshire (a venue I know very well, having painted it for a table plan last year!).
The photography is inspiring: I love the little glimpses the images give. I always think photographer Robert Burress (aka Shooting Hip) has a really special way of looking at things, and of sharing them. Anyway – have a look, see what you think!
This is the first photograph from the wedding that really stands out for me: Kat watches as her hair is done, with no idea of the lovely photo she’ll see later.
Today I thought it would be nice to broaden our horizons over at English Wedding. Just a little hop over the channel, to see a fab wedding by Matt Parry who is a wedding photographer in London.
His little brother Chris was married in France in September and I couldn’t resist sharing the montage of photos in Matt’s slideshow of the wedding day. You can even spot Matt doing a stint on the guitar as beautiful bride Katie walks down the aisle. The music for this slideshow is by The Maccabees. Enjoy!
Matt always has me hooked with his wedding slideshows, not only for the photos but for the great musical accompaniment – it always shows Matt’s style and personality and I’d definitely book him for a London wedding if I was having one!
I’m struggling for words to describe Alex & Jess’s wedding, which was sent to me by favourite wedding photographer Lisa Dawn. Why? Well, every time I scan through the pictures all I can see is how beautiful Jess is.
Talk about an English rose: Jess could be the heroine from any English period drama, with her hair beautifully curled and pinned, exquisite make up and her beautiful classic wedding dress with just enough diamond sparkle to take your breath away.
How about I stop wittering and show you the photos of Alex and Jess’s wedding day?! Enjoy…
From the portrait photos of the beautiful bride and handsome groom to the myriad colours on the dancefloor, this is a whole new world of fabulous. Photographs are by the wonderful Lancashire wedding photographer Neil Redfern. Enjoy!
Vanessa is a truly beautiful bride, and these photos are breathtaking! Her hairpiece fits her vintage wedding perfectly, and I love those cute lace sleeves.
Vanessa and Michael’s reception was held at The Barlow Institute in Edgworth, Lancashire.
This latest wedding feature from the blog of Manchester photographer Neil Redfern is like a step back in time. With everything from handmade bunting to a vintage bus – and not just your usual red London bus – this is gorgeous!
If you’re planning a vintage wedding, Vanessa and Michael’s day should be the perfect inspiration to fill you with amazing ideas!
I spotted Sarah and Ally’s dedication ceremony on the TP Photography website a week or two ago, and loved the striking images of their day. I also love to post something a little unusual from time to time.
This was a dedication ceremony rather than a wedding, but Sarah blew me away with her fantastic red wedding dress, and Ally looks fantastic in full Scottish attire: kilt, sporren, the lot. Enjoy!
A dedication ceremony can be held for many reasons: as a vow renewal, or to have your civil ceremony blessed by a vicar if you weren’t married in church the first time. The idea is to dedicate your marriage to God.
Time to introduce Gloucestershire wedding photographer Jonathon Watkins to everyone today – and I hope you enjoy his photos as much as I do! Beautiful bride Sian and Leyton were married at Hatherley Manor Hotel in August.
Jonathon told me that Sian and Leyton picked a very rainy day to get married, but he caught my attention with these wonderful words: when life sends you rain, put up the umbrella and make beautiful reflections…
Fantastic bridal shoes from Benjamin Adams – these are ‘Winslet’ in ivory silk.
Sian’s pretty diamante tiara is from Blossom Tiaras in Hampshire.
This Newcastle wedding instantly made me think of ‘On top of the world’ as a title. As well as the amazing shot from the hotel roof in Newcastle, the romance in the photos is tangible and it shows that bride and groom Liz and Steven had the best day of their lives.
This wedding was sent to me by Simon Hudspeth, a Newcastle wedding photographer based in Durham. Simon works alongside his wife and marketing genius Alison, who told me how much they loved shooting Liz and Steven’s wedding.
The photos are an astonishing mix of contemporary cityscapes and romantic old cobbled streets, with views of the Tyne bridge and Newcastle’s Black Gate (part of the castle).
Olly and Louise came all the way from Australia and were married at The Great Hall at Mains in Lancashire this summer. I spotted their wedding on wedding photographer Jonny Draper‘s blog and couldn’t resist… Louise is a gorgeous bride, Olly’s so handsome, they make a striking couple and every photo is perfect.
Plus there was the llama, which had me in stitches…
The Cartford Inn is a lovely little hotel not far from Preston in Lancashire.
Louise and Olly were married at The Church of St Michael in the village of St Michael’s on Wyre, Lancashire. The late mediaeval church is a Grade I listed building.
I’m doing it again… a preview of tomorrow’s real wedding to tantalise your wedding appetites. This time I’m also playing with you, quite unapologetically.
Why? Well let’s see… this wedding has a random llama, a reverse confetti attack, loads of romantic photos and blasts of exciting colour plus a glitterball.
And until tomorrow folks, that’s all you get. ‘Cos I’m mean (and reeeeaallly busy!)
