I wanted to share a really pretty wedding with you all today – something elegant and graceful, with a wonderful sense of English charm and tranquility – and I couldn’t think of a lovelier wedding than Christie and Ben’s day. Christie is so very beautiful – a Devon bride whose timeless style reminds me of Audrey Hepburn – with Ben her perfectly handsome leading man. They married at Symondsbury Tithe Barn and chose lovely Linus Moran Photography to capture their day.

“On the day, keep making time for each other. Ben and I kept stealing moments where we would find a quiet spot to soak in the view of our wedding, hold hands, kiss and share tales!

I’ve heard people say nothing changes when you get married. I disagree – there’s a monumental shift and it’s a wonderful one. I love being married. I love hearing Ben introduce me proudly as his wife.

There’s something about an elopement – the romance of it all just gets me, every time! Nick and Kristina’s love just shines from the photos of their special day. There’s no nerves, none of the formality or embarrassment that being in front of a big crowd of people can sometimes bring. These two lovely people are joyful, blissfully happy from the moment we first see them – and yes, it makes me want to elope, right now, to Gretna Green!

The fact it was just us 2 made it so incredibly special – we remember every single word of our wedding vows… Don’t lose sight of what getting married is all about. Being married is the same but everything is different! It’s hard to explain, but there is a deep and strong bond that exsists, that inextricably links you together forever.

Huge thanks to lovely Camilla Lucinda Photography for sharing these beautiful moments with us today!

Green fields, fairy lights and delicate flowers in her hair… Becky and Rob’s marquee wedding is all kinds of beautiful. Acres of countryside borrowed from Becky’s godfather meant they had the perfect location for a relaxed country celebration, and it looks divine. And oh, that dress….

Gill and Andy’s wedding is like a dream – the perfect beach location; breathtaking spots for those keep-forever photographs and the prettiest of seaside styling touches. They married at Tunnels Beaches in Devon, and chose Evolve Photography to capture their day and the fabulous Pumpkin & Pye for beautiful florals.

Gill’s bridal separates are exquisite – she knew she wanted a skirt and a top rather than a dress. “I tried on about 20 different dresses before I found a store that had a skirt and a top. I knew as soon as I put it on that it was the one! The designer was Karen Willis Holmes and the boutique I bought it from was Martin Charles Bridal in Peterborough. I couldn’t recommend Martin highly enough. He is incredibly talented and made my dress fit like a glove.

I decided that my dress was a statement enough and didn’t want it to be overpowered by lots of jewellery so I kept it simple. I had feather earrings which went with my boho theme and a bangle my mother had given to me for my something new with sapphires in it to match my engagement ring and wedding band.

Rachel & Gavin’s ceremony was under a gorgeous floral arch before celebrating the rest of their evening in a romantic barn lit by fairy lights. I adore all the handmade touches and I recommend you grab a cuppa before scrolling through the stunning images of their day – there are sooo many ideas here, you’ll love them!!

Jen and Joe had such a beautiful, summery wedding at Loseley Park with pretty florals and the most amazing backless lace dress. The look of their day was very English country wedding, and worked beautifully to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Family and friends decorated the venue, and Jen’s mum made all the macaroons herself – they look fab.

Images are by lovely Verity Quirk Photography, who gets a great review from our gorgeous bride and groom. Verity told me Jenny and Joe are huge G&T fans: “Their friends and family say they go together just as well at Gin & Tonic does, so at the end of their ceremony they both made a G&T together and shared it while leaving the ceremony! I LOVED that.

“Jenny being a huge feminist made it very clear from the beginning she wasn’t going to let just the men do the talking so just before entering the reception barn Jenny made a fab speech to all the guests on the lawn whist sipping some bubbles. Her bridemaids also made speeches before the men! It was a gorgeous day full of friends, family and stunning flowers and backdrops and a day I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.”

The sunlight in these wedding images is just dreamy – when wedding photographers talk about golden hour you just know you’ve found the right one, don’t you? And Annabel and Sam’s wedding portraits are so beautiful I just had to start with their evening pics! What a gorgeous couple… and the loveliest set of images you can imagine.

We chose Love in Focus after recommendation from a friend and looking at his website.

We couldn’t be happier with our photos! Sandy was brilliant on the day. He was unobtrusive and hidden in the background to get all the natural photos we wanted but assertive on the group shots to ensure everyone was in place. The pictures really capture the essence of the day and his attention to detail was spot on.

Let’s start this week on a high, shall we? Gorgeous Katherine and Nick’s wedding at Cleatham Hall has everything: the most amazing bouquet, a breathtaking dress and the loveliest of details to share with you. It’s fabulous and the perfect pick me up for all of our Mondays!!

Katherine’s interview is ace – don’t miss it at the end of the blog post if you’re getting married this year. I love her words of wisdom: “Stay true to both your styles and choose the things that you like . Everyone says ‘it will always come together ‘ when you are at your most stressed times with planning and they are so right. After the day, you’ll have no idea why you were so worried.”

Osea Island is paradise personified. The venue only needed a few touches to make our Gatsby theme come to life!

In the months leading up to the wedding my flat looked like a storage depot mixed with a mad artist with a penchant for glitter, ribbon and foam board. A shout out to my amazing girlfriends who DIY’d into the stratosphere with me and forgave my toddler like meltdowns (e.g. world is now ending because one shade of gold ribbon is different than the other :/) I so owe them.

My sister-in-law was scheduled to be our photographer – but unfortunately at the last minute she was unable to attend the wedding. I was in a panic – overwhelmed by planning and unable to process any major changes. My husband really stepped up and through the magic of Google and Ayshea’s amazing and captivating site he knew she was the one. Once I spoke to her – and she was warm – I knew we were in good hands. And we were.

I’ve known Fiona through the English Wedding Blog for years. She’s an absolute gem of the wedding world – a super talented photographer and one of those genuinely lovely people whose emails can brighten up an entire week. So when Fiona sent me images of her and David’s very own wedding, I instantly knew I had to share it with all of you – and oh my, it’s just so beautiful!

“I loved our wedding, perhaps most of all because we had such a beautiful ceremony. I had a lovely friend who is a priest perform the ceremony, and we got married in a gorgeous private Catholic chapel owned by the Tempest family for ten centuries. While I was saying my vows I looked up at my husband (who is very tall) and noticed the ceiling, which was covered with blue and gold stars. It felt almost as if we were saying our vows under heaven! We also had a blessing for my son, Leo.”

Devon brides and grooms might already know Hannah Taylor – today’s beautiful bride and fabulously creative wedding stylist. It fascinates me to see wedding industry insiders’ weddings – and Hannah really pulled out all the stops to make her wedding to Michael stand out from the crowd. It’s deliciously alternative, breathtakingly beautiful and such a fabulous example of a truly individual day. Hannah and Michael are both gorgeous – this really is a treat and I hope you’ll LOVE their wedding photos as much as I do!

“I did my own flowers which l kept to a minimum as we had a February wedding when flowers aren’t plentifull. I used lots of accessories instead on our dinning table – fabrics, cut glass bottles and candles. My bouquet was made up from silk, artificial and fresh flowers.

We mainly focused our decoration on the house dinning room and chapel as bridwell’s such a beautiful house it didn’t need much else. I love making and creating – I’m doing it most days but for other peoples weddings this time it was for us. Yes it felt extra special!. I made and provided all our decor.

However stunning the location or decoration, it’s the bride and groom, their family and friends that really make for a great wedding, everything else is secondary – so say the fabulous documentary wedding photographers York Place Studios.

Today’s wedding has an amazing little ninja page boy in a head to toe gold costume (awesome), an actual bandstand, some bemused pic-nic-ers (how on earth do I spell that?!) and the most gorgeous bride and groom in like, ever. Plus the best atmosphere you could dream of… and it all comes across so beautifully in the photos.
