Genius documentary photography telling the story of a Yorkshire wedding - York Place Studios on the English Wedding Blog (21)
FEATURED

A LOT goes on at weddings. They’re magical, romantic… and the busiest days of our lives! With everyone we know all in one place, a schedule to be kept and plans to be followed, it’s no wonder the day goes by in a blur. The top piece of advice couples give in their English Wedding interviews is to take a moment to stop and take it all in, because everything happens in such a rush!

And that’s where photographers come in. The best will capture the moments you missed as well as those you’ll want to cherish forever. York Place Studios get this – and they are uniquely talented in the way they do it. I love how every image tells not just one story, but many. Grab a cuppa and scroll through Sara and Sam’s day slowly, because I promise you’ll chuckle at times, love the romance and all of those precious little interactions between guests which are what really make a wedding.

Relaxed and informal modern wedding in Leeds with Anna wood Photography (13)
FEATURED

You can hire a country manor, fill it with flowers and spend countless weeks cutting and pasting designs for your invites and table plan… but wedding blogs are here to show you you don’t have to do any of that. You can create a brilliantly amazing and memorable wedding your guests will love without all the bits people expect – just like gorgeous bride and groom Diane and Michael did. I love how they describe their day – the focus was on brilliant food and drink, making sure their guests were looked after, and choosing 3 fabulous venues for their ceremony, reception and evening party. I love it: the whole day looks and sounds just perfect – a wedding blogger’s dream!

We contacted Anna after seeing her ad on Facebook and we were not disappointed. Our first meeting was more like having a friend round for a brew than a meeting where We chatted about the day itself but really got to know more about each other. Advice we’d been given was to choose someone you get along with as your photographer as you spend a lot of time with them and Anna was so warm and genuinely excited by our wedding, she was the clear choice for us to share our day with.

We’re all about the elegant styling and simple venue and table decor today on the English Wedding Blog! This is a beautiful wedding – I love Lisa’s dress, the flowers… and that summery sunshine at the end of the day is simply perfect! Lisa and George chose Rudding Park as their wedding venue, and Alfred and Co Photography to capture their day. Flowers are simple white roses with gorgeous foliage from Flowers by Colette in Harrogate.

We were recommended Kirsty by a friend, who used her the year before. After looking through their pictures, our mind was made up that we would like Kirsty to shoot our wedding.

We were very pleased with Kirsty from the very first point of contact with her. Not only is she a fantastic photographer, she also is very easy to deal with, and is very helpful with any questions or issues we had. When we saw our wedding photos for the first time we were thrilled, neither of us really like having our photo taken, but we both loved them. She captured so many natural moments, and that’s what made us delighted to have chosen her.

Of course you can do the splits in your wedding dress. You can also look as effortlessly glamorous as any Hollywood leading lady, marry the gorgeous man of your dreams, smile all day long and party until you drop. And to anyone who doesn’t love a sparkler send-off? You’re wrong!

Everything about today’s fabulously glamorous and fun winter wedding will show you this is how it’s done – and it’s beautiful from beginning to end. The venue – Rudding Park in Harrogate – is fabulous. The special touches Jess and Andy incorporated into their day are wonderful (especially the mirror table plan!) – it’s all simply breathtaking. The trick is to book an amazing photographer to capture every second for you, and they nailed that too!

So today I really want to say that weddings should be about memories, celebration, belly laughs and so much love you could burst… yet at the same time, Holly wears the most incredible dress for her wedding to James that part of me is holding back just a little bit and thinking that at least half of this blog post should be about just how beautiful that dress is… argh!! Because, isn’t it?! Wow.

The story of a winter wedding by documentary photographers York Place Studios (30)

I love featuring weddings from our wonderful friends and sponsors at York Place Studios. They’re fantastic documentary wedding photographers who are different. They do more than capture the atmosphere of a wedding day; they grab the wedding and bring its spirit and laughter right through to the screen. And for their brides and grooms I’m sure those images are so powerful they’re transported right back into every heart-bursting moment with every single shot.

If you love summer flowers and dream of an opulent, gloriously fragrant summer bouquet – then today’s wedding is going to blow your mind! The flowers are exquisite – and then some. Beautiful bride Hannah is breathtaking in full lace sleeves and a glorious Caroline Castigliano gown while her rather gorgeous groom Will is every bit the country gentleman.

Their marquee wedding has the loveliest styling ideas with hanging floral decoration, huge centrepieces full of colour and even blossom trees to create the country garden look. The table plan is my fave with prettily folded cards set amongst yet more florals catching prettily in the breeze.

All of the flowers were styled by lovely Susie Hart of Hart Company, who brought together peonies, hydrangeas, roses and cornflowers to create the pretty bouquets for Hannah and her bridesmaids. Hydrangeas were key in the hanging chandeliers, which incorporated foliage and tender ferns for a looser shape and wonderful texture.

I’ve known Fiona through the English Wedding Blog for years. She’s an absolute gem of the wedding world – a super talented photographer and one of those genuinely lovely people whose emails can brighten up an entire week. So when Fiona sent me images of her and David’s very own wedding, I instantly knew I had to share it with all of you – and oh my, it’s just so beautiful!

“I loved our wedding, perhaps most of all because we had such a beautiful ceremony. I had a lovely friend who is a priest perform the ceremony, and we got married in a gorgeous private Catholic chapel owned by the Tempest family for ten centuries. While I was saying my vows I looked up at my husband (who is very tall) and noticed the ceiling, which was covered with blue and gold stars. It felt almost as if we were saying our vows under heaven! We also had a blessing for my son, Leo.”

Today’s wedding is just brilliant.

You’ll have to visit the full feature-length blog post to discover why I’m saving their blushes… meanwhile though, here are some of the most beautiful images to begin today’s incredible real wedding on the blog. I hope you love them as much as I do!

“These are unbelievable, you guys have captured the day beautifully! Your incredible level of attention to detail and unique perspective has allowed us to revisit all of it and really savour every moment both big and small. These are a breathtaking memento of a very special day, and I am sure both of our families will cherish these for a very long time, I am certain that both Kim and I will! We wanted to say thanks again, not only for your amazing results, but also the way in which you and the guys do what you do – it was a pleasure to have had you there on the day and it is our privilege to have had you as our photographers.” – Simon & Kim

Jess and John’s day was rainy – it didn’t stop; and it didn’t matter. They chose a magnificent venue in Wentworth Woodhouse, and the images of their day are as stunning as can be. The focus was on friends and family, celebration and love. This is a classic English wedding, a reminder that simplicity and elegance can create a truly beautiful day.

“Something I found was that it’s the little touches that make a wedding completely personal and special to you. We had old photos of us around the venue, a personalised cake topper, I put a basket in the ladies toilet with essentials in and provided flip flops for anyone with tired feet. A lot of these ideas were from Pinterest or I took as inspiration from other peoples weddings.

Laura at Flourish, Sheffield, arranged my wedding flowers. She was amazing, working to my budget which constantly changed! I was so pleased with the flowers on the day. They made such a huge difference to the venue and were great thank you gifts too!

One of the themes I loved most in 2016 was colour palettes. Brides and grooms have been choosing the most wonderful colour combinations – tonal palettes and contrasting shades and textures to bring their wedding style to life. It’s a creative thing – and I’m all about the creativity! So my third wedding of the year is a perfect example. Beautiful bride Laura and her gorgeous groom James used pink and gold to create a magical, romantic and perfectly on-trend wedding at Cubley Hall in Yorkshire. I hope you adore their day as much as I do!
