And now for something completely different…

Gemma and John planned this hysterically funny Monty python themed wedding at the Ravenswood and chose brilliant UK wedding photographers York Place Studios to capture their day

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!

I’m in love with today’s wedding. I’m in love with Gilly’s sparkly beautiful dress; I’m in love with the styling details and the story of Gilly and Den’s day. I’m in love with the gorgeous photography from lovely Hannah Larkin…. this is all just so wonderful and I have been ever so excited to share it with you! Before we dive into all the images though, I want to share something important with you.

Sussex is a beautiful part of our country – if you’re getting married here you’re SO lucky! Not only do you have the sunniest coastline in the UK to enjoy, you have THE most amazing choice of wedding venues. You’ll find every imaginable wedding venue in Sussex, from the grandeur and magnificence of Goodwood to the relaxed and whimsical Party Field. Together with our friend and English Wedding member, Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall Photography, we’ve put together a list of 12 of the best Sussex wedding venues – with something for every couple, no matter what your budget or wedding style might be!

Reportage wedding photography has my heart. In the 10 years since English Wedding began I’ve seen thousands of weddings. They all have a story, they’re all personal and unique and beautiful. And the images which capture the spirit and story of a wedding are the images which will stand the test of time. Always.

So it’s with genuine pleasure that I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite reportage wedding photographers in the UK. Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall specialises in reportage photography (otherwise known as documentary wedding photography, or wedding photojournalism) – his website is a brilliant place to go to see what reportage wedding photography is all about.
