Oh I do, more than anything else in the world, love to be beside the seaside. It’s home for me… and so seaside weddings make my heart sing! This one is all kinds of wonderful… and it’s deliciously different. We’re talking seaside chic, ultra modern and arty backdrops, and so many of those little moments (watch out for the smaller guests – they’re awesome!) which make every wedding unique. LOVE this!!!

So many things made this day memorable, from the seaside location to the venue and to the couple themselves – seriously, such lovely people, and they really made me feel like part of the day. Also, Ian’s speech was fantastic – I don’t think I’ve seen someone so nervous, and yet pull off the speech so well! He couldn’t stay in one place and look at Annabel without being close to tears, so he had to keep moving and it made for a really lovely moment, which had everyone close to tears themselves!

Sam and Amy’s wedding is a pretty, romantic and family-focused affair with the loveliest details and glorious images I know you’ll love! The flowers are out of this world… 

Real wedding in Somerset photography by Jennifer Sinclair (19)

We didn’t have a theme as such…. Our key priority was having all the people there who we loved and who had looked out for us. Next it was making sure that we had really good food and drink. We both love cooking…and wine….as do our friends! We wanted our reception to feel like a big family meal, with our friends and family passing food around, chatting and enjoying. We went for a bit of an English-Italian fusion….. local Somerset Salami and buffalo mozzarella, Italian Parmesan, (local) Roast Beef and salads and our favourite wines that remind us of holidays.”

Devon wedding blog at Cadhay Estate with Jennifer Jane Photography (9)

The venue is Cadhay, a unique Devon wedding venue in Ottery St Mary in the heart of rural East Devon. The beautiful and historic Elizabethan manor house is a luxurious home from home, offering exclusive use and accommodation as well as charming and welcoming rooms for civil ceremonies.

Coco Chanel said “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance” – and today’s wedding is simply perfect.

Cadhay was decorated with the most beautiful country garden flowers in jars and  vases by In Bloom. Jane wore a beautiful ivory dress from La Bella Bridal  while Jon was wearing a dashing blue suit by Hugo Boss of Dukes and looked very handsome indeed.

Nestle into your sofa, sink back into your work chair, cradle that cup of tea and prepare to fall in LOVE with today’s beautiful wedding on the blog. Charlotte just looks amazing; Joe is as tall, dark and handsome as can be, and they married in the loveliest venue you can imagine. I love this wedding for the stunning images – also for Charlotte’s wonderful advice and tips for other brides and grooms. Don’t break yourself over DIY; don’t panic over details, do whatever feels right for YOU and plan to really enjoy your best day yet.

Try and savour the moments throughout the day, it really does go so quickly and by the end of it you will be absolutely exhausted but enjoy every single minute. Don’t worry about the small things: the days before the wedding I was losing sleep over how we were going to display the table plan and what the napkins would look like but on the day those things really didn’t matter. As long as you have food, music and your dress sorted you are good to go!

So far, in my life as a wedding blogger, I haven’t eaten a peony. Although… they always look deliciously pretty, don’t you think?! Alex and Chris’s wedding was filled with peonies – the flowers are an absolute highlight and the light, feminine style of their day is beautiful.

Morning lovelies! I hope you’ve got a fun day planned – but before you head out do have a scroll through today’s gorgeous English wedding – it’s full of elegant style and classic ideas, with a wonderful reception at a sailing club (and of course some stunning beach shots!)

Sussex wedding Worthing Sailing Club with Neil Walker Photography (23)

The church was in the beautiful Sussex village of Findon, we then went on to Worthing Sailing Club, which of course is right on the beach. I was able to take advantage of the beach huts and the beach itself to get some beautiful photos of the two of them. The Sailing club itself has big windows all down the beach side, so I had wonderful light to play with for all the photos in the afternoon.

Gemma and Mike set the scene for their day by sending all of their guests gold tickets wrapped in chocolate bars as invitations. And this won my heart from the second I knew – they sound fabulous! Their day was themed around Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with lots of lovely touches bringing the theme to life and some STUNNING portraits which take my breath away.

I asked Gemma to share her best advice with all of you lovely brides and grooms out there: “Don’t get stressed out about the wedding, and make sure you have the day that YOU want. You don’t always have to please everyone else.”

And after the day? What’s the best thing about being married? “Knowing that we are both really happy, and looking forward to what our next adventure is.” How lovely is that?

I always like to pick out my favourite few photos to show you first – it’s a great way to set the scene for a gorgeous wedding blog feature, and I always love scrolling through a wedding, looking out for those amazing, eye-catching, breathtakingly beautiful moments to share with you. However… I tried it today, and within moments I had a list of a dozen STUNNING moments from Dale and Charmaine’s day. Safe to say this is a knockout, and I love every. single. pic.

Aaron and Sarah’s wedding has wow factor: the locations around Consall Hall are simply breathtaking. Those trees... really, these are some of my favourite wedding pics so far this year. I love their day for its simplicity, rustic appeal and romance – and the beautiful bride and groom are just made for each other.

real wedding at Consall Hall on the English Wedding Blog. Images by Ragdoll Photography (23)

We chose a vintage/rustic theme as Aaron proposed after an afternoon tea (which we then chose to have as a wedding breakfast), and because we love the informal/relaxed style. We did a lot of the preparation ourselves, we made all of the stationery including invitations (huge saving!), and we kept things simple.”

I loved making all of the stationery, but then I am a perfectionist and I knew exactly what I wanted. One person we met with said that the design wasn’t possible in the size we wanted (A6). Luckily I am a crafty person, so determined to have what I wanted, I made it myself (and succeeded!)

Sarah wore a vintage dress with a gold ribbon and looked absolutely beautiful walking down the aisle towards Paul. They only had eyes for each other! The ceremony in the wonderful church building was relaxed and also emotional – the smiles on the bride and groom’s faces as they tied the knot said it all!

Words & images: Carol Elizabeth Photography, Oxfordshire

I am very honoured to photograph a lot of weddings through the year, and I enjoy being a part of each and every one. But now and then a wedding is particularly memorable – for the people, the emotion, the location or even the dress, the decorations and the speeches. Sarah and Paul’s wedding was one of those days. A beautiful late-Spring wedding with fresh cut flowers, a stunning vintage dress and a couple who were completely in love.

I love Jen’s dress more every time I look at her… today’s bride and groom are such a fabulous couple, and their day seems to suit them so wonderfully well. I love the venue; the light-up-letters are a fabulous feature; the bouquet is dreamy… I’m so happy to have such an amazing wedding to show you this morning 🙂

Today: wise advice from Nana that paid off beautifully; an unexpectedly amaaaaaazing wedding dress, and the cutest, happiest couple ever. Monique and Adam are gorgeous. I love their style, the way they go together like peas in a pod… and oh, the blossom cheers my heart this morning!

I had so much fun at Monique and Adam’s wedding; it was just so relaxed and happy from start to finish. I had met up with them both in York for their engagement shoot the week before so I already knew that they were going to be naturals in front of the camera on the day – despite Adam being less than keen on having his photo taken! The weather forecast wasn’t great but it ended up being dry all afternoon and we were able to make the most of the little orchard at the back of the hotel for some lovely portraits. Monique was such a beautiful bride, and has the most infectious smile! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming it was one of those wonderful weddings that didn’t feel like work at all!” ~ Laura Calderwood Photography
