Confessions first: I’m not here. I’m off grid, somewhere in Pembrokeshire, hiking the coastal paths with my man and sleeping in a gypsy caravan. But last week I wrote this gorgeous blog for you, and I’ve been SO excited to share it with you all!

As some of you lovely readers will know, I live on the edge of the Lake District, on the beautiful coast of Cumbria. When photographers send me weddings which are close to home it makes me very, very happy – and Broadoaks Country House is one of those charming Lakeland wedding venues I have quite a soft spot for.

We’re bringing you all the sunny vibes today with this super lovely wedding from Somerset. Meg’s horse gets a starring role in the day, and even he couldn’t tell the sunflowers weren’t real (he had a nibble to be sure)! This is a glorious Hestercombe wedding with pretty styling touches, and a fantastic interview from the bride and groom.

I do love a winter wedding. Seeing how couples incorporate lights and candles, and the bare branches and evergreen foliage we celebrate through the darker months – it makes weddings a little more special with all those wonderful styling touches. And then, of course, there’s the opportunity for incredible lighting in your photos.

Connie and Lewis knew they had to choose the right photographers for their day, and they loved our friends and Devon wedding photographers Younger Photography from day one. Keep reading to see the review they gave us in their English Wedding interview below!

A lovely micro wedding from one of our new English Wedding members, Yorkshire wedding photographer Heather Butterworth. Jonty & Sarah tied the knot (lucky things!) in October, with their closest family present to witness a beautiful intimate ceremony and socially distanced reception. It’s genuinely beautiful – as I’ve said before, human connection is everything right now, and seeing that love isn’t cancelled just means the world to us.

Lovely Jonty and stunning bride Sarah were married at Stanley House Hotel in Lancashire, and give the venue – along with all their other suppliers – a resounding 11/10. Do read Jonty’s full English Wedding interview below for all the scores and more supplier recommendations 😉 All images by Heather Butterworth Photography (naturally, another strong 11/10!)“english

When I spotted this wedding in our calendar for today I wanted to cartwheel down the street. It makes me SO happy! I absolutely love the joy and colour in today’s wedding – and beautiful Amo and Shayan are the absolute best! These two lovelies tied the knot at Elmore Court last summer, and chose the venue for its flexibility: to have a classic English wedding with big white dress and black tie, with a formal day reception… then transform the whole event into a vibrant and colourful Indian wedding reception complete with drummers and a fabulous party atmosphere. And boy, did they nail it or what?! Images are by Cotswolds Wedding Photographer Dan Morris, and I’ll leave you with lovely Amo and Shayan to tell you about their day!
