A blissfully beautiful real wedding for you this Friday… I’ve been excited to share this one, and I just know you’ll love it! Becky and Martin married in July 2018 at Cooling Castle barn in Kent. They have a shared love of travel and adventure, and styled their wedding with nods to this from globes to photographs on each table and little mini travel cameras – the theme of travelling was all around.

Images are by our lovely friend and English Wedding member, Kent based Michelle Cordner Photography. Becky’s dress is from Wed2B, teamed with shoes from Paradox. Her hair is by Zara Rose and makeup is by Lydia Rae. Martin bought a suit from Moss and teamed it with a dusky pink tie from Asos. Floral styling and bouquets are by The Flowersmiths.

“Luckily our venue didn’t need too much decoration. The barn already felt really rustic and didn’t need much adding to it. We decided to add things like a few extra fairy lights, items to tie in with the travel theme like a light up globe, treasure chests for cards and gifts etc. The rest was all handmade items we added.

Gorgeous couple Rhalina and Toby describe their wedding – and I LOVE this – as “a mix of tradition and latino energy with Art Deco club glamour”. It just about sums up the vibrance and energy of their day – and yet you need to scroll through all the images to capture the excitement and magic of it all! They were married in Mayfair in August, with a ceremony at Farm Street Church and their reception at The Landsdowne Club on Fitzmaurice Place.

Rhalina’s dress is incredible: it’s by Riki Dalal, and was the very last she tried on in the boutique. Isn’t it stunning? The delicate flowers on the bodice are lovely; the leaf pattern and graceful shape of the skirt made her absolutely mesmerising as she walked down the aisle on the day! This is a wow dress – and a wow wedding for sure!

The sunshine is back!! And I’m so happy to say we have a gloriously sunny July beach wedding on the blog for you today. I love this so much – gorgeous couple Michelle and Dan were married at Tunnels Beaches and their beautiful day just sings of summer! The styling touches are perfect – there are wonderful summer wildflowers, as well as ice creams, proper old school striped deckchairs and a showstopper of a wedding cake! My brilliantly talented friend and Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad captured the whole day for the happy couple, who have given him a fantastic review below! Enjoy the blog today… I know I will!

We did lots of research of different styles of photography. I loved the photos on Robin’s website and in his portfolios.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Absolutely! Robin was so lovely and he made two people who feel uncomfortable in front of the camera relax.

Summer brides and grooms – peony season is here and we’re celebrating with ALL the peonies in today’s beautiful Kent wedding. Beautiful bride Becky married her gorgeous husband Greg at High Rocks and they chose English Wedding member Helen England Photography to capture their day. The pics are glorious, the sunshine is fabulous! (Hello, outside! We LOVE you today!) – and the joy and happiness just radiates out from this pretty, feminine summer wedding.

There were a few recommendations for High Rocks wedding photographers. We looked at a lot and we absolutely loved Helen’s style. We wanted our wedding to be captured exactly how it was – everyone smiling and having fun. We loved that Helen’s photos are really relaxed and just capture everyone’s emotions without them knowing.

HELEN IS A DREAM!!! From the minute she showed up to my hotel room (which was chaos) she fitted in like one of our friends. She got on with her shooting and we didn’t even know she was there. She made me feel so comfortable.

Hey lovely! I have another fabulous wedding to share with you today – this one I totally adore for all the pretty styling touches, and for our gorgeous couple whose stunning smiles are making me grin back at my screen today! I love the leafy, foliage-centred stationery and the cute knitted people (my mum used to make these! Anyone else?!), oh and the gloriously light and airy colour palette which just couldn’t be more perfect for a marquee wedding. Photos are by our wonderfully talented friends at Amanda Karen Photography (and Danielle & Joe’s review of one of my fave wedding photographers makes me a very happy wedding blogger indeed!).

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend…. and ooh look, sunshine again! This week promises to be a beauty, so let’s fill it with some FABULOUS weddings shall we? I have a stunning Cambridgeshire wedding to share with you this morning. Beautiful Olivia and dapper hubby Philip had an outdoor ceremony and wonderfully light and bright marquee reception at Chippenham Park. My lovely friend Heather Jackson Photography captured their day in her uniquely beautiful style.

“Liv is a ballet teacher and laughs constantly when she is with Phil, she absolutely shone on their wedding day and laughed literally all day and night; even when it threatened to rain all morning!

Her ‘bride squad’ were hilarious and the mood of this day was just electric – I think this leaps out when the girls are together! Sharing laughs with their Best Man and ‘third wheel’ Richard during the ceremony was hilarious.

Good morning beautiful! If you like flowers this is for YOU! Gorgeous, fun couple Steph and Rob’s beautifully relaxed Yorkshire wedding day was in two contrasting halves… with a city centre ceremony followed by a countryside reception full to the brim with country summer blooms! They chose a relaxed, vintage theme full of stunning summer flowers with such a gorgeous palette of colours – they’re perfect, and I just love everything about this wedding!

The Fleece Countryside Inn is gorgeous and didn’t need much to look incredible but we did have the help of the amazing Stems Design who did the majority of the styling and Set The Scene venue stylist who provided the table cloths and beautiful lace chair covers. The room looked incredible and I was blown away when I saw it for the first time – floral wonderland!

This gorgeous pair just make me SMILE!!! Their joyful, colourful and relaxed wedding is all kinds of perfect. Andreia’s dress is divine – and is extra special because it was designed by her (now) brother-in-law! Isn’t it beautiful? The delicate shoulder detail is just exquisite!! And I adore how fun and playful Andreia and Antonio are with each other – you can just tell they’d be so much fun to be around, and they’re SO much in love! The colourful flowers are fabulous; the venue is full of character and the fun of this Bedfordshire wedding just doesn’t stop! I hope you love it as much as I do!

“My wedding dress was the true labour of love for our wedding. My now brother-in-law designed a few wedding dresses and then, both of us made a few adjustments until we got to the final design. Because I had a flower crown, I wanted quite simple accessories so I only wore earrings from a Portuguese shop, www.catavassalo.com. My shoes were by Ted Baker.

Hey lovely! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend – and oh, welcome to April! I have a proper spring in my step this morning and I’m excited to share this beautiful wedding just bursting full of summer sunshine!

We looked for photographers on many different websites and blogs. I searched the lot and I found this very difficult to narrow down. What made us select Rachel was that her photos were vibrant and in the moment which is just what we wanted plus she didn’t break the budget.

We wanted most of the photos captured to be natural of ourselves and our guests enjoying the day. Rachel and Dan were brilliant throughout our day and we are literally spoilt for choice when choosing our photos for our wedding albums.

Two things I love more than anything today: brides in red, and grooms doing wedding interviews. So boy am I happy to be sharing this beauty of an “East meets West” wedding full of gorgeousness and vibrant colours and fabulous florals… and I just know you’ll love it too! Siren is stunning in a traditional Chinese wedding dress (and her evening dress in a lush dark green is just fabulous) – and lovely husband Greg’s response to my “did you fall in love with your wedding dress” question [below] filled me with happy chuckling [he totally means yes btw!] Images are by English Wedding member and super Yorkshire wedding photographer Stevie Jay Photography. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

A friend of mine recommended Stevie to me while I was researching photographers in the run-up to the wedding. Both my wife and I really liked the way she was able to capture the atmosphere of moments in a natural way and found her style to be the best fit for what we wanted.

Becky and Dan’s vintage DIY wedding is perfect, gloriously happy and colourful, and just seems so full of character and fun! Becky describes their day as “Completely DIY and disorganised! Perfect for us!” – and I love it. They tied the knot in church, then had afternoon tea in the scout hut next door and their evening reception was on the local bowling green! The gorgeous pics by Yorkshire wedding photographer Stevie Jay capture the spirit of their day brilliantly – what a fabulous, eclectic and fun couple! Congrats guys, you ROCK!

Stevie was recommended by a friend who is a professional photographer.

Stevie was amazing, we said it was like having a friend there from wedding prep to the evening do. The photos were incredible. I’m not the most confident with photos and I was anxious about seeing them but she captured our emotions perfectly.

The first time we saw our wedding photos we were sat on the sofa together with a bottle of bubbly and I cried!
