This morning couldn’t have worked out better. I want to end 2020 on a really positive note – and with the most heartfelt thank yous to our wonderful couple Sophie and Chris, I’m about to share something AMAZING. This year has been heartbreaking – we’ve lost people, we’ve postponed weddings, we’ve missed everyone we love. My friends and wedding creatives have suffered unbelievably, and for many of us, I know we just want to write off 2020 and start over with a fresh and positive 2021.

But that’s no way to end the year for a wedding blog, is it?!

2021 is speeding towards us and I’m starting to feel excited about weddings coming back and restrictions being gradually lifted. What a year we’ve had: things can only get brighter and happier from here! So today’s gorgeous couple Vicky & Matt’s way-before-covid wedding is as cheerful as it is beautiful (colourful paper lanterns in the ceremony room get a big YAY from me!) – and it’s one of those wonderfully authentic days full of joyful people – as every wedding should be. And of course, this fabulous day has the most amazing wedding photography by our friends at York Place Studios.

Today’s gorgeous couple married in the summer of 2020, and with covid restrictions limiting their choices they still had the most amazing day – it’s all beautiful. Jess found her dress at Monsoon and fell in love with it; Justin bought his suit online and loved it too – they both look fabulous. This lovely pair kept an eye on sustainability with their wedding: hiring items rather than buying, choosing candle favours from a maker who donates a % of profits to bee conservation, and donating part of their gift money to a local charity kitchen.

It’s a very seasidey kind of week… I’m over the moon today to be sharing this gorgeous real wedding from Rye with you. Stunning couple Sarah and Sanusi tied the knot in safer times, so no covid restrictions… and this is a wonderful reminder that weddings WILL get back to being free, full of love and hugs and joy and happiness. And passionate confetti-throwing, and gorgeous group shots. Nonetheless, Sarah and Sanusi chose to have an intimate ceremony – before micro weddings were forced upon us, these two show they’re a wonderful choice: fewer guests can often mean more love in the room. Fact. They’ve told us lots about their day and the suppliers they used, so HUGE thanks to the lovely couple – oh, and hats off to Sanusi for making their wedding cake!!

Escapism has been a huge part of the blog this year – and it doesn’t come better than this. Jaw droppingly beautiful dresses and dreamy florals, daringly different styling touches and a wintry aesthetic…. I ADORE this shoot! For wedding inspiration with an alternative twist, keep on scrolling and prepare to fall in love! Huge thanks to lovely Clare at Clementine Moon for sending this our way. Images are by lovely Hannah Barnes Photography, and there’s a full supplier list for you below.

With love,
