This weekend sees the longest day of the summer – and I’ve been so excited to share this glorious June wedding with you lovely lot. Gorgeous couple Harriet & Harri were wed in North Shropshire, a very special place to them both, and chose our lovely friend Warren at Howell Jones Photography to capture their day.
Harriet is stunning in a unique and beautiful Tara Lauren gown From Heart Aflutter Bridal Boutique in East London, while Harri’s made to measure light wool suit is from Mr Start in Hackney, East London. Teamed with a favourite liberty print tie by a maker on Etsy and a simple rosemary + rose buttonhole, he looks fab! Harri’s flower crown completes the country wedding look beautifully.
I LOVE a local wedding! Living on the edge of the Lake District is a dream. We’re there every weekend exploring the mountains (and valleys, right now!) and the landscape never fails to take my breath away. Needless to say, it’s my favourite place for weddings and so sharing Jen & Alex’s day with you today is soooo exciting! Most of all I love their day for its relaxed and elegant vibe. Beautiful bride Jen’s dress is non-traditional…. stunningly slinky with a daring thigh split and incredible back detail, it’s by Atelier Pronovias. Alex looks fantastic in chinos and a classic white shirt (because suits are NOT a rule…. or if they are, they’re the first rule to break! I love this look!) The gorgeous couple chose a few of my favourite suppliers for their day: lovely Helen Jane Smiddy was their photographer; Kevin from Brackens of Bowness (“the unofficial god of flowers”) provided their amazing florals, and talented Charlotte of Sugar Ruffles designed their gorgeous wedding cake.
So this wedding is pretty epic. I just know you’re going to love it – Claire and J-D make the coolest couple ever, and with the extraordinary creative contributions from family they put on a wedding which is everything. The flowers are glorious, Claire’s dress is stunning, J-D’s outfit is brilliant and inspired, and the photography exquisite. Grab a cuppa, snuggle down and enjoy this beauty of a summer wedding.

Isn’t it cold this week?! I’ve gotten so used to all the glorious sunshine I’m having to layer up in jumpers again until we get a second wave of SUMMER! But in the meantime I’ve this glorious August wedding for you, full of sunny tropical florals and vibrant colours, with images by lovely English Wedding member Tara at Pudding & Plum Photography. Alex and Pete’s day is wonderful with some fabulous styling touches, and still brilliantly real and down to earth. The gorgeous happy couple celebrated their day at their family home, with a marquee reception and lots of lovely personal touches.
I bloody love this wedding – it’s full of love and laughter and FUN and hugs. There are belly laughs, there are beautiful styling touches. The setting is fabulous and the story of the day makes me smile. Oh, and Nicola and Alex are the most gorgeous couple! This is exactly how I imagine weddings after lockdown to be: the most amazing celebrations full of glorious contact and friendship and happiness. And the photos by super lovely (and major talented) Yorkshire wedding photographer John Hope tell the story of Nicola and Alex’s day beautifully.
