Hannah and Zira’s wedding is sunny and joyful and beautiful. These two girls are amazing – Hannah is a pro rugby player and former England player, and Zira is a firefighter who also played for England women’s rugby. The weather was perfect and the images from around their venue (Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Welwyn) are magical. The flowers just burst with summer… and with spring well on the way (I hope, right?!) this seems the perfect wedding to share with you lovely lot today.

I googled local photographers and we had an engagement shoot with our dog… Howard did a great job!

On the day of the wedding he was amazing, we barely noticed him and got some incredible shots!

Do as much as you can yourself, our parents did a lot of the decorations, My Nan did the cake

Charlotte & Sean’s wedding is simply glorious, with beautiful August sunshine and elegant muted, nude and pastel styling, and some wonderfully romantic moments. The florals are stunning, Pentney Abbey looks fantastic – and there are giggles too (scroll down to see Charlotte’s epic bouquet throw!) An absolutely wonderful wedding with the most amazing images by our friend Rob Dodsworth Photography. Charlotte told us it was “the most romantic summer’s day of my life” – what a beautiful memory to have.

How did you choose your photographer?

We chose Rob based on a recommendation from a friend.

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

Absolutely! Rob is funny and we instantly felt at ease with him. We didn’t feel awkward on camera because Rob made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and when he wasn’t taking photos of us, he was in the background naturally capturing the moments that made up our special day.

So today’s wedding is an absolute DREAM!!! I have fallen head over heels for our stunning couple Daisy & Alex, for the FABULOUS florals by Dartmoor Flowers and the prettiest images by lovely Clare Kinchin Photography.

Daisy & Alex tied the knot at Lakeview Manor in Devon, on a beautifully sunny day in June. Their style is neutral glam, with so many beautifully elegant details, from Daisy’s breathtaking Willowby by Watters dress (from The Ivory Secret Bridal Boutique) to the mini rose gold bauble place card holders and eucalyptus sprig place settings. Oh, and don’t miss the bouncy castle photos towards the end of the post… they are just so uniquely brilliant and Daisy’s face is a picture!

Morning lovely! I have been looking forward to sharing this beautiful wedding with you – Corinne and Paul tied the knot at The Green in Upton Cross, in Cornwall. Their intimate wedding was family friendly – with even their adorable pooch playing flower girl! The theme was late summer, rustic countryside and Corinne’s lovely Augusta Jones wedding dress is wonderfully elegant with fabulous movement (see the dancing pics!) and pretty ivory flowers down the back. It’s a beautiful wedding with some wonderfully romantic moments, and I’ve a feeling you’ll love this as much as I do!

Alexa was recommended by our wedding venue team. She has a lovely website with clear examples of her previous work, and at a good price.

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

Alexa was lovely. We met 9 months earlier and had an engagement shoot, we really liked her style. We were over the moon with our images, she really captured the day like a storybook. It was like re-living our special day all over again. Alexa knew the venue well also which helped 🙂

Happy weekend everyone! I have a really special wedding to share with you today – our handsome couple are Samuel and Paul, whose joy on their wedding day just bursts from my screen from the very beginning! I love their smiles, their tears, the breathtaking setting of Rhinefield House and their images by lovely Katie Winter Photography.

The guys describe their wedding simply as “The most magical day of our lives.” – and it shows. They were blessed with beautiful sunshine, and the day was relaxed, elegant and romantic as can be – for me, the perfect wedding!

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer?

Over the moon, Katie was a joy from the very first email. Katie put everyone at ease on the big day, it felt more like an old friend was our photographer.

What was your reaction to seeing your wedding photos for the first time?

Tears!!! we were overwhelmed, they were stunning we looked at them all evening.

… because you can’t beat a llama surprise, right?! Honestly, this wedding is everything. Glowing with newly wedded happy vibes, Moran and Danny celebrate their love at Ashdown Park. Their day is magical, breathtaking, beautifully designed and brilliantly captured by our friend and English Wedding member Damion Mower Photography. Morag’s dress is exquisite, unique and different; from the fabulous Needle & Thread. The venue is oh so special – Ashdown Park is in the Ashdown forest, believed to be the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood (home of Winnie the Pooh!) – and the converted chapel with its stained glass windows is so enchanting all Morag & Danny had to do was add flowers – which, it has to be said, are stunning!

“Our theme was loosely based on a Midsummer Nights Dream style, my dress, hair, bridesmaids and flowers were very ethereal and the original ceremony was going to take place in the Summer House by the lake. The tempestuous weather the night before moved the wedding inside but added a magical twist of excitement to the day.

It feels like summer when I look at today’s wedding – I’m beaming back at my screen and totally head over heels in love with the images of Josie and Joe’s day. It was a super hot day; their tipis provided beautiful shade and the styling and florals create the perfect summer vibe. Josie is resplendent in a delicately patterned lace dress by Agnes; Joe’s tweed suit says English country gent to a T! I LOVE the sunflower signage, the DIY elements and the glorious summer vibe of their wedding – and of course the joyful images by Benjamin Wetherall Photography. I just know you’ll adore this one too!

How did you choose your photographer?

We already knew Ben as he’s a very good friend, but if anything this nearly stopped us from asking him to be our photographer, as we wanted him to be a guest and enjoy the day too. However, we’d been lucky enough to have been guests at a few events he has worked at and we love his style. His photos are always incredible so we knew we’d regret it if we didn’t ask him to photograph our wedding. It was so good to not have to worry about this element of the day, as we had total trust in Ben and his organisation, professionalism and of course photos.

Good morning, lovely! Today’s wedding is another stunner – this time we’re at Lemore Manor in Herefordshire with beautiful Alex and Ben, whose wedding was submitted by lovely Sophie Ann Photography. I love the soft blue of the bridesmaids’ dresses (eBay, can you believe?!) and Alex just looks incredible in her figure-hugging dress from Wed2B. The summer flowers are magical, and the spirit of the day is enchanting as can be!

Lemore manor’s reception room has marble flooring, which in itself is to die for, but when you add in the details they added when decorating, it really came together. The chair fabrics were super elegant, the cake was incredibly done and the florals, including all the bouquets, were totally Pinterest worthy.

Alex and Ben are also the nicest pair of people you will meet and truly cared about photography. It was an emotional wedding with lots of tears from walking down the aisle to the speeches, all happy of course. It was just a lovely group of people at a stunning Hereford venue on a gorgeous summer day – a pleasure to photograph! ~ Sophie Ann Photography

Did I ever tell you how incredibly lucky I feel to do this for a living? Writing about gorgeous weddings, scrolling through eye-dazzling images of love and joy all day long? It’s a pretty special way to spend the days, and I’m feeling incredibly blessed this week with such dreamy content to share with you! Today’s couple are stunning Phoebe & Ed, who married at Childerley Hall in Cambridge and chose our friend and top UK wedding photographer Richard Skins to capture their day. Phoebe’s dress is just….. ahhh I don’t even have words: it’s more beautiful than beautiful has ever been before!

“I fell in love with my dress pretty much instantly; it was the dress I felt the most myself in and could 100% see wearing on the day. I remember walking out of the shop the first time I tried it on and saying to my bridesmaids, ‘I think I might have just found my wedding dress’. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after, which confirmed it was the one for me. The designer is Anna Kara, at Morgan Davies Bridal, Hitchin.

I couldn’t be happier with this week’s AMAZING weddings! Following yesterday’s stunning and colourful florals, today we’re going all white with the blooms, and including oodles of wonderful foliage – oh, and of COURSE we have the most insanely gorgeous couple: Joshua and Rebecca are just fabulous! That dress though…

“I have always been drawn to traditional wedding themes and feel like we managed to get a nice blend of classic wedding stylings with an element of whimsical floral touches. Being surrounded by flowers was my dream and one that we decided to spend more money on. Claire from LilyFee created a real life dream! I call her my fairy god mother. We went for white flowers and lots of foliage. I was desperate for a flower arch and we placed it to the entrance of the marque which was decorated with hanging foliage. I was able to work really closely with Claire and she really made my visions come to life, she is so talented!

So how’s that first day back at work going?! For me it’s a good one – I’ve packed and posted seven calligraphy orders already, my desk is almost clear – and I only have 70 or so emails in my inbox to reply to! [wedding photographers and suppliers – Our tier 1 & 2 advertising packages are HALF PRICE in January if you’re looking to get noticed on here! Click for more info]… My cat is snuggled up in his bowl next to me; it’s blowing a hoolie outside and I’m nice and warm in my little studio! Oh, and before I forget (haha)… I have the LOVELIEST real wedding to kick off our 2020!

Newlyweds Emily and Paul tied the knot at Dewsall Court in June. Their day is beautifully rustic and relaxed, with an edge of glamour and a wonderful sprinkling of summertime! Emily is stunning; Paul her perfect match, and you can see the love just shines from these two! Most of all I love this wedding because it’s REAL. The happy couple had friends and family help out with styling their day – the cake was made by a friend, and the couple made their own table plan (which is pretty damn awesome!) – and this blog is ALL about real, achievable and inspiring weddings!

Jenny and Ben’s August wedding is instantly a favourite for me – they’re the loveliest, sweetest couple and their day just rocks my wedding bloggy WORLD!! There are some wonderful ideas I just know you’ll love – aside from the hundreds of pom poms, there’s a mobile gin factory on a VW camper van with jars of spices and copper pots to make your very own wedding gin right there on the day – genius. There are sunflowers and pinwheels in a rainbow of colours, along with fairy lights everywhere, and fabulous vintage style tea length dresses, and GLORIOUS florals – it’s just everything. Jenny looks stunning in her Brighton Belle dress. Ben’s relaxed look gets a huge YES from me: suits are not obligatory for weddings, guys! He looks fab – and more than anything, the happiness between these two is infectious. They describe their day as “a colourful rustic, vintage, craft collaboration with a gin twist!”
