I love Sophia and George’s wedding – Sophia is SUCH a beautiful bride. The flowers are gorgeous, George’s suit is fantastic, I love their little slate place names… and the setting and outdoors images are out of this world.

Photographer Tracey Warbey told me it was a very emotional day: “there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Sophia walked down the aisle, she looked stunning.” And Sophia and George are thrilled with their images. They will be recommending their photographer and videographer to everyone they know: “An absolute investment!!!! Those are the two things I will encourage my friends who are getting married to invest in, the day comes and goes, but the memories last for ever, so ensure some one has captured them in the manner you envision.

I love Trevenna Barns. This was my second wedding there in five months. It provides a beautiful backdrop for any wedding, as it is set in the wonderful Cornish countryside. I like the fact that the wedding party can hire the whole venue as well – it makes it more personal I think.


I love Ben & Sarah’s barn wedding – they’re both gorgeous, Sarah’s dress is beautiful and they look just perfect together. I also adore the outdoor shots – those huge trees are one of my favourite things in wedding photography this year! – and the venue is pretty amazing with books lining all the walls. I really like their unique stationery as well, and Sarah’s bouquet is fabulous. I’m sure you’ll be inspired by all their awesome details too!

Sarah told me they didn’t have to do much decoration inside their venue: “The Barn speaks for itself decor-wise… we went for a cosy/rustic style throughout the day and because our surname is McGregor we sourced all sorts of ribbon and fabric in the McGregor tartan to give it a personal touch.

Victoria and Stefano’s wedding is gorgeous: their style is city chic; they married in Manchester and made their day personal by enlisting friends and family to help – but they didn’t stress about details and focused more on creating an amazing party atmosphere. As Victoria says, “Don’t get carried away paying a fortune for tiny details which may look pretty but go unnoticed! Invest your money in the things that people will remember – the food, drinks and dancing!

Photographer James Tracey told me a little about the day. “I loved shooting Vicky and Stefano’s brilliant, relaxed wedding. What stands out for me as the photographer was that the wedding featured guests and family from all over the world (with Stefano’s family coming over from Italy), yet everyone partied and celebrated together! It was a so much fun from Jager bombs during the bridal preparation, to the hilarious marriage service followed by a brilliant reception all the way through to the night time party with the incredible Brass Funkeys performing live and making the dancefloor literally bounce! A truly awesome wedding.


Booky people, an elegant Palladian mansion and a dash of Lord of the Rings meets Harry Potter… today’s is a wedding which ticks all of my boxes and the images are out of this world. The day and details are fabulous; the bride and groom Becky & Gareth gorgeous… family dog Lucy plays a major part in the pics and there’s even the sweetest cat (oblivious to any wedding goings-on) and so many gorgeous photos to show you. I can’t wait!!!

“I tied ribbon and a handwritten label to 70 classic books as favours… very time-consuming, but it was really fun choosing particular books for particular people. I know a lot of them have been read and enjoyed, too!”

Our flowers were a purple and blue scheme; my bouquet contained delicate mauve roses to contrast with my ivory dress, while the bridesmaids had white roses to contrast their dresses in various shades of purple and blue. I asked Glenice to create a soft, natural look, loosely arranging the flowers and incorporating some pearls from one of my grandmother’s broken necklaces. For the church, Glenice made some beautiful large arrangements with gladioli and hydrangeas; she then kindly transported them to Somerford Hall so that we got to see them all day!


Happy new week everyone! Let’s begin with something beautiful today… a deliciously pretty pastel themed wedding in Lancashire – and the most adorable little family at the centre of it all. Gill and Ash were married at Beeston Manor and their wedding is all about love and family – and all the more beautiful for it.

The details are divine; the bride and groom sooo gorgeous, and their little boy is absolutely adorable. Every moment, every detail of the day is captured beautifully by Lancashire wedding photographer Arusha’s Images Photography, who Gill and Ash highly recommend! “Arusha is such a wonderful photographer, she photographed our day perfectly, our wedding photos are just so gorgeous and romantic, and are the perfect reminder of our wonderful wedding day, thank you.”

Words by Arusha:

Gill and Ash are such a lovely couple, there was some time in between them organising their wedding and the actual day, so much in fact that they moved and renovated a house, had an absolutely adorable baby boy, and planned all their wedding day! Bearing this in mind, it was a real family day.


Ben and Nancy’s Devon wedding has some of those breathtaking images you’ll only ever see at country weddings. Their church is fabulous – I’d so love to see it for real!  I adore the landscapes, the bride and groom are gorgeous and Nancy’s bouquet is out of this world. I also spotted some little feather details on the tables, which look wonderful – this is a really gorgeous wedding and I am so excited to share it with you all today.

Anna from Luna Photography told me, “The day was memorable for us because Ben & Nancy were so much fun to work with, and we loved the guests’ reaction to the church! The venues were dreamlike, Brentor Church has always been somewhere we wanted to shoot a wedding, when Nancy initially got in touch we couldn’t have been more excited! Twinned with Coombe Trenchard it was absolutely perfect, you can even see Brentor high on the hill from the gardens at Coombe Trenchard which was perfect. We loved the reception venue as there was so much scope for beautiful venues, and the owner, Sarah, could not have been more accommodating.”


Summer weddings are wonderful: the glorious light and wonderful warmth of those endless days will be back before we know it… and so this morning I would love for you to join me to reminisce over hazy days and summer celebrations.

Rozie and Al’s wedding is the most perfect example of an English summer wedding – I love the styling of their day, the beautiful flowers and stationery, Rozie’s stunning bouquet and dress… oh, and their countryside location is blissful.

Images are by Sarah Williams Photography, who told me a little about Rozie and Al’s day. You can see more from her beautiful website and social media channels here:


“The wedding of Rozie and Al was such a beautiful, happy occasion and the attention to detail that they had put into their day was outstanding. From the pretty bunting that Rozie spent her evenings making in the run up to the wedding, to the flowers, arranged perfectly by Al’s mum, it was a dream to photograph. The couple, their friends and family were all so lovely and the whole day was full of love and happiness.


Today’s wedding has the most glamorous dress ever, a gorgeous couple and some exquisite details. The reception venue is a highlight: a fabulous party space with tons of character. The cake table is wonderful, the table styling quirky and fun. This is a party spread over several days… and it’s awesome. I think you’re going to love Maddy and Adam’s Cheltenham wedding!

I loved this day. Ever since my first days as a photographer ‘paying her dues’ I have photographed on the steps of Pittville Pump Rooms. Parkfit, fun runs, charity events and Zumba plus numerous family shoots. This park has a special significance to everyone I know in this town.

“All three locations for this wedding felt like home, and the entire day had the atmosphere of being ‘one big happy family’ I love how Maddy and Adam threw tradition to the wind and really did it their way. I am so honoured that they chose me to record their day.”

Little gold eggs at every place setting… personal egg cup place names, the most beautiful flowers with pale pink and pastel blooms… it can only be an Easter wedding, and this is the loveliest I’ve ever seen!

Rebecca married Adam last Easter at Elmore Court. Their day is wonderful – they’re such a gorgeous couple and the photos of their wedding are just divine. Even the tiniest details are so carefully curated… “The ‘big’ things such as florist, hair and make up etc came by recommendation but for the smaller things I developed an obsession with wedding magazines, which I loved looking through for inspiration, as well as wedding blogs and there was definitely a lot of pinterest boards being created. I fell in love with Etsy and being able to talk to the suppliers and request personalised items worked really well for us. A lot of our extras came from there.”

I love ‘English country garden’ as a wedding theme. I love rustic, country weddings. I love seeing couples strolling through fields and woodlands, and down country lanes… but more than any of that, I love it when that countryside is so obviously home.

Michelle and Rob couldn’t have had their wedding any other way – and my heart tells me they would never have dreamed of a different wedding. The countryside is their life: they look so happy – and the styling of their day has an instinctive, natural flair which could only come from a bride and groom who adore the English countryside more than anything. Their Yorkshire wedding photographer Ian Wallace sums it up: Michelle and Rob’s wedding was all about the people – dozens of friends from the village turning out on the streets to wish them well and join in the celebrations and bringing the village to a standstill.

Happy Saturday lovely people! I hope you have a wonderful day planned – we’re in Manchester after an amazing concert last night, and heading back on the train to our lovely Lake District very soon. But first – I wanted to show you something really inspiring and gorgeous and fun: a beautifully lit, romantic wedding in Mexico. If you’re lucky enough to have a summer wedding outdoors in the UK, how about some amazing lighting like this to make your evening reception spectacular?!

Laura and James were married at Yorkshire’s gorgeous Cubley Hall, in the summer. Their day is perfect: captured in a beautiful fine art style, with the whimsical wedding details I love so very much. The flowers are divine – oh, those peonies! and Laura looks more than amazing in a beautiful wedding dress from designer Emma Tindley.
