Today’s real wedding is a stunner: beautiful bride Sarah wears a breathtaking dress by Jesus Peiro, while her bridesmaids simply shine in vibrant red. Groom Tristan looks amazing in a Horace & Sons suit while his groomsmen (many, as recommended by Sarah in her interview below the images!) look distinctive and dapper in braces and flat caps! This is a stunning wedding shot by our lovely friend and Priston Mill Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek.

Our wedding flowers were big and colourful! Rustic feels to the decorations for the venue but still, lots of colour! Emma Norton was our florist. I cannot tell you how fantastic her work was and how well she understood what I wanted. Perfect.

Other than the flowers, we dotted around a few home made decs but the venue certainly didn’t need this. It is so beautiful and full of character as it is (I mean it has a working watermill in it!!)

Today’s wedding is pure luxury, sheer joy and absolute beauty. Stunning bride Fern married her gorgeous groom James at Sherborne Abbey and celebrated with a beautiful reception at Brympton House in Somerset. Their day is captured by our friend and sponsor, Brympton House Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek, who is based in Somerset.

I tried on over 100 dresses and found it particularly hard to narrow the selection of styles down as I liked too many. My mum and I visited the Caroline Castigliano store in Knightsbridge and the sales assistant picked a gown I wouldn’t have chosen and the second I walked out in it, my mother had a tear to her eye. We then managed to accessorize it with the different trains, veils and belts to create the look for day and evening I was envisaging. The dress was also made to measure which was brilliant as it ensured it fitted like a glove on the day.

Beautiful bride Siobhan and gorgeous groom Ross got married in the springtime, and were blessed with a beautifully sunny day. I fell in love with Siobhan’s bouquet of ranunculus, freesia and eucalyptus with tiny narcissus and eucalyptus – it’s perfect for springtime and every bit as gorgeous as a summer bouquet.

Orchardleigh House is a stunning venue in North Somerset with fabulous, lavish rooms, the perfect venue for a romantic English wedding. Driving into the estate and along the winding driveway to the main house there’s a real wow moment that gives you a feeling of excited anticipation.

Both Siobhan and Ross were getting ready at the venue which meant I was able to get a few shots of them both getting ready. After hanging out with Siobhan, her family and her bridesmaids for a bit and capturing the hubbub of activity as everyone got ready along with a few details I headed over to find Ross and his boys.

Emily & Andrew’s “accidentally 50s tea party styled” wedding is just wonderful! It’s the loveliest mix of quirky and fun, with gorgeous styling and details and the most beautiful bride and handsome groom! The fab couple were married just outside Taunton in Somerset. Emily got ready at her home which was right next door to the church, and after the ceremony everyone travelled by vintage bus over to Mount Somerset Hotel for the celebrations. The venue is just fabulous: a 19 bedroom Regency country house set in four acres of beautiful grounds.

So many people have opinions of what our wedding “should” be. We spent an evening early on with a bottle of wine, pen and paper and drew our dream wedding. The more wine the better the ideas! But actually looking back we got nearly every element into our wedding and it was exactly what we wanted and it reflected us.

Today’s featured wedding was a classic white wedding with the most beautiful church arch. A very relaxed elegant feel with lots of involvement from the family – and the prettiest florals you can imagine. I just love the archway covered in flowers and foliage by lovely Caroline, owner of Foxy Buds Floral Design – it makes the prettiest backdrop for photos and has a traditional feel to it which I think is wonderful.

The brief I gave my florist (Caroline at Foxy Buds) was “White with greenery presented in a natural/wild style.” And Foxy Buds completely delivered. I was really nervous before the big day because I had completely overdosed on Pintrest and Instagram and so I thought it would be impossible to bring that picture in my head to life. That nervousness was a complete waste of time – Caroline’s flowers were more beautiful that anything I had seen elsewhere. James and I constantly referred to the word “relaxed” when talking about what we wanted from our big day and that’s exactly the same feel I wanted (and got) from the flowers.

Today’s real wedding is romantic, feminine and oh so pretty – the kind of wedding so many girls dream of, brought to life with a wonderfully elegant style. Beautiful bride Amy’s dress is divine – I adore the palest pink hue which works beautifully with the bridesmaids’ soft grey dresses. Words and images are by our lovely sponsor, Somerset wedding photographer Sandy at Love In Focus.

Getting to shoot any Somerset wedding photography on a bright and sunny day is one of the many upsides of my job – so getting to photograph a wedding at Aldwick Court Farm on a bright and sunny day is just about as good as this job gets! Amy and Ben chose the perfect venue for their spring wedding.

On the day I arrived at Amy’s parents’ house in Bristol to take some shots of Amy as she got ready for the day. Amy looked amazing in her dress with beautiful lace detail and chiffon on the skirt that gave her a wonderful silhouette.

The more I look at this gorgeous couple’s photos, the more I love everything about their day. It’s wonderfully casual, massively fun and full of the best homemade touches by talented friends and family. Tess and Ben got married near Bath and well and truly demonstrate what can be done for a wedding on a high street budget. Tess looks stunning in a bridal jumpsuit from Anthropologie and goes barefoot with anklets from India for the ceremony until putting on her white Nike Air Max 90s later in the day. Her hair and makeup was provided by Faye O’Connell.

Tess and Ben’s ceremony was non-religious and borrowed from Humanist and Pagan Land Blessings, and was held in a marquee in Ben’s parent’s back garden in Colerne. Signs painted by Sarah-Jane Griffey led guests to the wedding and their order of service was designed by Donna Sarah. The marquee, chairs and fairy lights were provided by Bath Marquee Company and dressed with bunting from the Event Flag Hire Company and flowers (as well as bouquets and button holes) by Electric Daisy Flower Farm. In the evening, local company Rye Bakery cooked wood fired pizza on site and served to guests.

Coombe Lodge in Blagdon is one of the loveliest wedding venues in Somerset – as impressive as any stately home on the outside, and beautiful on the inside too! Gemma and Will chose this perfect spot for their romantic summer wedding, and our lovely sponsor Sandy from Love In Focus to capture their day. Gemma is absolutely stunning and I know you’ll love all the magical moments from this classic English wedding.

Our venue was very classic and grand, which did not need much decorating at all, it was beautiful as it was with wall lined oak panelling and chandeliers. However finishing touches along with the flowers made it even more special. The main reception room was more of a blank canvas where we could make it more personal, along with grande chandeliers and an amazing views across Chew Valley.

Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.

Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”

We call it ‘liquid sunshine’ here in the Lake District – a ‘very British’ kind of weather which seems to put on a special show every Saturday in wedding season! Time and time again I’ve heard the advice that even if it rains on your wedding day, you shouldn’t worry. Many of my photographer friends tell me they keep one eye on the weather because it never rains all day long. There’s always a break in the clouds; a moment when an eagle-eyed photographer will whisper in your ears that there’s golden sunshine outside… your chance to get some beautiful wedding day portraits to last a lifetime.

Today’s beautiful Somerset wedding is a perfect example. Yes, there’s a bit of rain to contend with – but it doesn’t spoil the pics: it adds to the story of Victoria and Adam’s day.

The details of the day are sublime: Victoria’s dress is beautiful, I love Adam’s suit (I’m sure we’ll be seeing more like this in the next couple of years: dinner jackets are a big US wedding trend) – and the styling is elegant and exquisite.

You know when you look at a rainbow, and it’s so amazing it gets in your eyes and stays there all day? No? You’re about to, with today’s wonderfully colourful English wedding. The hot air balloon is only one of so many visual delights (and hey, if you’re training to be a balloon pilot!!!… it’s got to be done!) The styling and decor make this wedding so fabulously fun, unique and memorable – it has to be one of my favourite weddings on the blog this year. Gorgeous Kristy and Ollie shared lots of info about their day, so do read their fantastic interview after the images!

“We made our own invitations, created some of the venue styling pieces such as bunting, paper cranes, we put together some glass vials with wildflower seeds for wedding favours too. I was lucky to have some help from friends and family with all these.

“Our wedding was very ‘us’ – everything we love and everyone we love all together on the perfect summer’s day. There was a summery, boho, chilled out vibe with the added burst of colour and vibrancy we love from our travels and that make summer so happy and full of life. A perfect day for us is fun, relaxed, full of music, laughter, food, cocktails and dancing under the sun and the stars – and that’s exactly what we did.”
