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!

Oh, and before I forget (haha)… I have the LOVELIEST real wedding to kick off our 2020!
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!”
Happy Monday, lovelies! Are you looking for a little escape from all the pre-Christmas busy-ness out there? Because I have the perfect thing: a wonderfully relaxed and romantic, flower- and plant-filled wedding at The Great House, Sonning – and our gorgeous newlyweds Will & Karis who told me all about their best day ever! The images are glorious – they are by our friend and English Wedding member Damion Mower Photography, and the capture the beauty and spirit of the day so very, very well. As you might know, we ask all of our English Wedding couples to give an honest review of their favourite wedding suppliers, and Karis and Will’s review for Damion is just brilliant! I’ve included it at the top of the post for you today. All other suppliers are listed at the end of the feature, with some great tips from the happy couple on who to book for YOUR Berkshire wedding!
Morning lovelies!! I just got back from Venice – and I’ve had the most wonderful adventure of a lifetime over there. Also – a huge eye-opener of a holiday with the flooding and danger to the city and its inhabitants as well as its treasures. I’ll write more about it soon – but for now, if you haven’t been to Venice, put it on your honeymoon shortlist (before this treasure and once-in-a-lifetime destination disappears forever). So after my time away, I’m excited to share this stunning wedding today. Gorgeous couple Joshua and Chloe were married at Wrest Park in Bedfordshire on a beautiful day in August. The pretty images that capture their day are by Becky Kerr Photography, who gets a lovely review from the bride and groom!
Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I’m still away from my desk on a Big Adventure – but of COURSE I’d never leave you without something beautiful to feast your eyes on. Today’s Parley Manor wedding is full of glorious sunflowers, with stunning bride Carley rocking an unusual and beautiful Maggie Sottero gown. She and handsome hubby Dan describe their wedding as a “relaxed cocktail fuelled sunny garden party in the perfect setting” – which is everything I think a wedding should be!
