And now for something completely different…
I’d like to think this wedding is at the heart of everything you’ll see on English Wedding. It’s full of fun and character, loaded up sky high with hearty chuckles and must have been the BEST day for everyone who was there.
Bride and groom Gemma & John share a brilliant sense of humour, and there are plenty of photos here which will make you laugh out loud. Their wedding was sent in by our good friends, London wedding photographers York Place Studios. It really shows how essential it is to ‘click’ with your wedding photographers… whether that’s over a shared sense of humour, love of Monty Python or anything else that makes you grin!
Ah… the weekend awaits and it looks like it’s going to be a sunny one! Before we head up into the mountains I have a stunning wedding to share with you – it’s from last summer and you can almost taste the August sunshine! Tom & Alex’s day has everything: it’s beautifully styled, they both look amazing, the details are on point and these two are so loved up it’s melting my wedding bloggy heart. Bonus points for the boat… this is an epic day and I just know you’ll love it!
Have a lovely Friday!
… 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!
In 2019, there’s no need to stand still and say ‘cheese’. Have you ever wondered why the registrar will invite your guests up to take a pic of you “signing the register”, or why cutting the cake is such a big deal at weddings? It’s all about the photography, and dates back a generation to the times when wedding photographers had to very carefully capture 12 or 36 images on a film. You could almost count the ‘key moments’ to fit the photos on a roll of old school negatives! Documentary wedding photographer Martin Beddall explains how wedding photography has changed since our parents’ days, and how those traditional moments have become something really quite special in the age of documentary wedding photography.
Happy Friday my lovelies! After a pretty full week on the blog we have one of those wonderfully relaxed, countryside tipi weddings to share with you today. Beautiful bride and gorgeous groom Lucy and Ian, along with their guests, simply walked from their ceremony to the reception in the charming village of Singleton, in the Lavant valley near Chichester. Their five month old daughter Maisie is the star of the show – how adorable is this tiny human?!
