Cathy and Alan were married at Great Fosters in Surrey – a spectacular venue with so many gorgeous locations for beautiful photographs. Great Fosters dates from the 16th century and has so much character with its grand rooms and portraits, wood panelling and extensive landscaped gardens.

Cathy’s wedding dress is beautiful and comes all the way from a bridal boutique in San Francisco! She told me, “it was one of the most beautiful shops I have ever seen and I could have purchased all of the dresses. My dress was so unique and special, I could not wait to wear it and loved it on the day!

Today’s wedding is one of those lovely classic English weddings with a focus on the celebration itself rather than all the little details. When I asked Cathy to describe their wedding day in a single sentence she said it was about “love, friends, family, laughter, well wishes, great food, drink, dancing & fun.”

Jenna told me all her nightmares about falling down the aisle disappeared the moment she saw Jak there waiting for her: “although I knew the room was full, it was like no one else was in the room.” Isn’t that beautiful?

Their wedding was a vintage glam affair, liberally decorated with gypsophila which looks gorgeous. Jenna wore a silk wedding dress and Jenny Packham jewellery. The venue – wonderful Blackbrook House in Derbyshire – needed little decoration and was the perfect setting for a glamorous, vintage-inspired wedding.

I really love this wedding for its creative little touches. Jak and Jenna have designer friends whose skills came in handy for everything from the invitations to hairdressing on the day! They chose Nottinghamshire wedding photographer Pete Henderson to capture their day and his images are just lovely.

You’ll love this wedding – and vintage-loving brides and grooms will find plenty of inspiration here. Don’t skip the wedding report – Jenna’s closing comment made me laugh out loud! Awesome 🙂 Enjoy!

As much as I love a bit of quirky, a dash of creativity and all kinds of unusual weddings, I don’t think timeless elegance and style can be beaten. Laura and Pete’s Stratford-upon-Avon wedding at The Welcombe Hotel is the perfect example.

Stratford upon Avon wedding Benjamin Toms Photography (1)

Laura’s orchid bouquet is exquisite; their wedding cake is impressive; the venue full of character and tradition. They married at The Holy Trinity Church before their Welcombe Hotel reception.

Images are by wedding photographer Benjamin Toms, who says, “It was a beautiful sunny and chilly winter’s day, and the light was just perfect for the bridal portrait shots back in the grounds at the Welcombe Hotel. It was a fantastic day filled with emotion and such a pleasure to be part of.

Laura and Pete were thrilled with their photographer:

“Looking back on the photos from our wedding brings a tear to my eye. They tell the story of the day so perfectly and so beautifully. Ben was fantastic and captured every moment so that we would never forget it. Thank you so much! Laura and Pete.” See more…

Ed and Christian’s barn wedding is lovely – with so many homemade details and some fab finds on Etsy.com, they created a perfectly rustic wedding day. The venue is Pangdean Barn just outside of Brighton, and images are by Jackie at Peony Brides.

Christian looks beautiful in a Johanna Hehir wedding dress, and I really love Ed’s suit as well – they’re a stylish couple with an eye for detail but the overall feeling I get from their day is one of celebration and enjoyment with tons of love from friends and family… which makes it all the more special.

The details from Daniella and Scott’s Saddleworth Hotel wedding are just divine. As wedding coordinators they knew their venue inside out, and chose a sparkly winter wedding theme to make the most of the spectacular venue. Daniella’s dress is stunning – a Manuel Mota design with intricate beading.

This wedding is a treat – a magical celebration full of character and style, and the most amazing images I know you’ll love! It sounds as exciting as it looks, with thunder and lightning, hailstorms and finally sparklers to end the day as beautifully as it began. The bride and groom – one of the loveliest couples I’ve seen on the blog this year! – are gorgeous Mish and Jai. Images are by lovely Pixies in the Cellar.
Rowton Hall wedding photography (2)The Pixies – aka Peter and Sara – said the whole day had a great modern/vintage feel. Jai and his best man wore stylish great suits and funky shirts whilst Mish took the brave decision to be herself by wearing her glasses, which definitely looked amazing and complimented the whole look of the day.
Rowton Hall wedding photography (1)Jai had made a ‘signing bench’, a great idea, along with card/pressie box and signs for the road to Rowton Hall Hotel. Oh! And the best thing of all? A rice crispie wedding cake, perfectly topped with playmobil Mr & Mrs figures. Awesome. Read more…

A little while ago I wrote a feature about wedding venues and how sometimes we don’t see venues in all their glory on wedding blogs – and yet we should! Kiera and Peter’s wedding reminded me of that article because they have so many photos taken around their wedding venue, the magnificent Jesmond Dene House near Newcastle.

wedding blog photography Duncan McCall (1)Kiera and Peter had a timeless and classic wedding with close friends and family, with an emphasis on love and celebration rather than details and styling – and with a venue like theirs, there’s little need to decorate after all!

This is beautiful! Katy and Russell were married at Charlton House in Somerset in an elegant and sophisticated celebration with close friends and family.

Katy looks stunning in her Caroline Castigliano wedding dress, Jimmy Choos and full length veil – but admits she wasn’t completely besotted with her dress! And you know what? That’s absolutely fine by me 🙂 She’s beautiful, and she and Russell look so much in love – the images of their day are heartwarming and magical.

They decorated Charlton House with delicious little floral table displays, lots of gypsophila and exquisite stationery by Katy’s graphic designer sister, Emily. I love the ‘Nan Jams’ wedding favours and jars of snowdrops (I think it’s the first time I’ve seen snowdrops at a wedding, and they’re the loveliest flowers aren’t they?!) – but I’ll leave you to discover all of the pretty details for yourself. The fabulous images are by Albert Palmer Photography – don’t miss Katy’s wedding report at the end of the feature to see her brilliant reaction to seeing the wedding pictures for the first time! Enjoy.

Morning beautiful! Yesterday I featured Vic and Rich’s gorgeous wedding at Whittlebury Park on the blog, and you got a little peek at some of the wonderful special touches they created. Today I have some brand new pics from their wedding day courtesy of London wedding photographer Babb Photo (the lovely Laura). I loved all Rich and Vic’s ideas for wedding styling and wanted to share with you too… so enjoy!

rustic winter wedding ideas (7)

1. Use vibrant winter colours and a broad palette

Rich and Vic mixed vibrant winter colours throughout their wedding for a contemporary and exciting rustic winter style. Vic’s bouquet is fabulous with roses, berries, pine cones and sea holly – and colours include everything from rich red to dusky blues and pinks.

rustic winter wedding ideas (6)2. Combine textures in buttonholes

Rich’s buttonhole uses roses with seedheads, berries and even a pine cone… I’m sure there’s a little rosemary in there as well. Don’t limit yourself to a single rose and a bit of foliage – textures are more fun to make and wear!

FEATURED

So the best thing in Rich and Victoria’s wedding report is the impeccable logic behind their wedding cakes: a Victoria sponge and a Rich chocolate cake… geddit?! Genius – and this perfectly sets the scene for a wonderfully creative wedding with lots of DIY touches and vintage style. There were so many gorgeous images I’m not even showing you all of them right now – instead I’ll save some of my favourites for tomorrow in a ‘get the look’ feature to inspire you for your own creative wedding!

Today’s wedding blog feature is all about the beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. They describe their wedding as “The most perfect, unforgettable and incredibly humbling day with all the people you love in one room!” – and what could possibly be better? It looks as amazing as it sounds, with images by the lovely Laura of Babb Photo (who gets a rave review from our star couple!)

I first met wedding photographer Alison Groves a couple of years ago and thanks to the magic of Facebook we’ve managed to keep in touch across the miles and while both of us have lived the most wonderful adventures! Ali is a lovely lady and an experienced wedding photographer based in the north west. She’d be an absolute delight to have around on your wedding day as well… as today’s glamorous and gorgeous couple would be sure to tell you!

Nic and Vito were married at the Turnberry Resort in Ayrshire, and with the help of wedding planners 88 Events they created a glamorous 1950s inspired wedding with an Italian influence and all the best entertainment they could ask for! There are lots of surprises and laughs and moments of magical romance in here… Enjoy the show!

I love how today’s beautiful bride Claire describes her wedding, don’t you? She and Martin were married at The Hillbark Hotel on the Wirral, and chose lovely Jamie from Vickerstaff Photography as their wedding photographer. The images are wonderful and I’ve been so excited to share the wedding with you! What better way could there possibly be to begin the week?!

Wirral UK wedding blog Vickerstaff Photography (13)

The gypsophila (baby’s breath) bouquets and the bridesmaids’ flower crowns are lovely. Claire’s dress is stunning, and together she and Martin make a gorgeous couple. The venue is magnificent, dating back to 1891 and with that classic old English black and white Victorian front… oh! and can you believe they moved this wedding venue in 1930? All of it, brick by brick. Why? Because the owner’s wife wanted it in a different place! Now that’s devotion for you!
