Hey gorgeous! Are you feeling refreshed after the sunny weekend? I have some treats in store for you this week… and we’re starting today with a beautiful reminder that things WILL go back to normal and we WILL have parties and hugs and proper weddings again. I’m desperately hoping it’s soon – because this kind of loveliness is too special to miss. Lexi and Chris’s wedding had everything: an outdoor ceremony under an ancient tree with Chris’s military kit giving the occasion a certain gravitas… and Lexi is just STUNNING! They celebrated with a tipi reception and festival / fete inspired party afterwards, and the dancing went on until the early hours. Memories, hey? For now, let’s celebrate with this gorgeous pair.

With love,

Lovelies, I hope you’re all doing ok. We’re taking a break from our usual content today to share some advice from the mental health experts at Bupa. So many of you have had to postpone wedding dates until 2021, and I know some of you are even changing your wedding plans: scaling down guest lists and doing things differently. It’s hard. It’s really hard. I’ve been trying to keep blog content light hearted and positive to lift spirits, but for those of you who are struggling these tips from Fatmata Kamara, Specialist Nurse Adviser at Bupa UK, might help you.

With love,

The coronavirus pandemic has meant that many couples who had planned their dream wedding this year have had to postpone or cancel their upcoming nuptials. This is inevitably a stressful time for brides and grooms-to-be; especially with the uncertainty around postponing your big day, and the challenges of finding a new date that all your loved ones can attend.

I may overuse the word epic to describe the weddings I feature on here. Today’s though… well it feels as though epic doesn’t come close. So I’m bringing you Lily & Gareth’s spectacularly legendary wedding which I have a feeling will knock you off your FEET! This gorgeous pair made their day individual, full of joy and colour, stuffed it with bags of personality and left me reeling in a rainbow of glorious images. Lily’s dress is by our favourite Jo Fleming – and it is literally the most beautiful creation I’ve seen any bride wearing, ever.

You’re going to LOVE this, I promise!

How did you choose your photographer?

Through some extensive web research and then through recommendations from other photographers who were unavailable.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Yes. Marta and Artur are an amazing couple and go above and beyond to get what you want from your pics. We didn’t want any set up / formal pics, but more a photographer who would capture the atmosphere of the day. Artur definitely did that! Our main thing we wanted was for everyone to have fun, and the photos captured that perfectly.

Wait, what…. HOW is it Wednesday already?! I’m so glad this one crept up on me…. because I have an EPIC wedding to share with you today!

All images are by lovely Hollie Carlin Photography, and I will hand over right now to our stunning bride to tell you more!

Hey there beautiful! I have a gorgeous wedding to share with you today – Leanne & Charlie’s day is elegant and sophisticated, full of contemporary styling touches and with so much love and laughter you can almost taste the atmosphere. It’s a stunner – and captured brilliantly by our lovely friends, UK and destination wedding photographers MIKI Studios. Leanne is incredible in a Halfpenny dress, while Charlie looks amazing in a tailor made suit by John Lancaster at VSmono. I’m thrilled to be able to share Leanne & Charlie’s wedding video as well as their photos with you today – it’s also by MIKI Studios, who get a glowing review from the VERY happy couple!

How did you choose your photographer?

We met Mick and Ash at our of our friend’s weddings the year before and totally fell in love with their work. It was so different, quirky and captured the essence of the day. We were pretty set of what we wanted for our big day and knew they could deliver.

You’ll never be more ready for an unforgettable holiday after the build-up to your wedding and the excitement of the big day. Let’s face it – as much as a wedding is a celebration of you as a couple, more often than not it becomes a delicate balancing act of family and friends!

But beyond the opportunity to catch your breath, a honeymoon stands for so much more.

It gives you the chance to explore your new identity as a married couple. To reflect on the life-changing commitment you’ve made and all the feelings that go with it. And perhaps most importantly, a honeymoon provides you with the opportunity to set the tone for the beginning of your marriage.

If a rush of flights and sights on a whistle-stop tour is the opposite of what you have in mind, perhaps you should consider slow travel for your honeymoon.

Good morning, lovelies. I hope you’ve had a relaxing and peaceful weekend. Today we bring you some timeless but modern wedding styling ideas from a group of talented suppliers in Hertfordshire. The look is simply perfect, with understated luxury and touches of sage green mingled with nude fabrics and gold accents. All images are by lovely Nicki at FJS Wedding Photography, and you’ll find a full list of the creatives involved below.

With love,

Elegant, Modern Nude and Sage Green Inspiration Photoshoot (37)

There is no colour scheme more classic than nude, white and sage green. The colours create a romantic, timeless look for a super luxe, elegant wedding. The elegant table styling was given a beautifully unique, modern twist, in the way of airplants within geometrics and the floating gold candles in tall glasses, by the wonderfully creative Fleur de Lace. This stunning styling was complimented by the gorgeous floral arrangements by The Flower Mill, filled with crisp white and pale blush roses and soft foliage.

A little escapism today, and inspiration for all of you lovely girls tying the knot in 2021 and 2022. These two stunning bridal collections from Anna Georgina, available from Morgan Davies Bridal and a handful of other UK boutiques, are simply out of this world.

The Constellation Collection and Pure Collection by Anna Georgina (16)

The new PURE Collection is clean, minimal embellishments with the focus on slick silhouettes. From a sleek crepe column gown, to natural waists, sculpted necklines, and structured skirts, to the show-stopping V-neck lace open back with cathedral length train. Volume in skirts in Japanese Mikado is exaggerated with cathedral-length trains and sensational slits. The PURE Collection speaks to the regal timeless beauty that the Anna Georgina Bride is all about. These gowns are heritage pieces fit to be passed down through generations.

Since lockdown began, I’ve been constantly surprised and uplifted by the resilience of the wedding industry. As so many of you lovely couples have had to postpone, suppliers have been working hard to support your new plans, to juggle availability for 2021 bookings… and all the time facing genuine hardships (because for so many of these indie businesses, this is their livelihoods). So when a photoshoot like this one lands in my inbox it brightens my heart and reassures me: we’ll come back. We can do this. There’s a future for those fiercely creative talents working to make your weddings amazing, and a positive future shining on the horizon.

Today’s photoshoot took place when a wedding showcase couldn’t happen… and these amazing suppliers kept the day alive in their inspiring way. It’s wonderful – I hope you love the images. Thank you especially to Sally Rawlins Photography and to Louisa May Weddings, who’ll explain more.

With love,

As we head into the weekend I have one more breathtakingly beautiful wedding to share with you. Gorgeous couple Maureen & Liam tied the knot at Thornbury Castle in an elegant, sophisticated and joyful celebration with their closest family and friends.

This is such a fabulous wedding, with some truly special personal touches and brilliant recommendations for exceptional wedding suppliers. All images are by super talented Thornbury Castle Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek, one of our favourite contributors and members of the blog. Martin gets a glowing review from the happy couple, which was heartwarming to read. Huge thanks (and happy anniversary, if a day or so late!) to lovely Maureen and Liam. Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!

How did you choose your photographer?

We reviewed a number of photographers, but it came down to the connection we felt with Martin. Speaking with him felt like speaking with a friend, and it was clear that he shared our understanding that the candid moments between friends and loved ones were the most meaningful usually. He also had a gorgeous catalogue of work that had us feeling intrigued and eager to work with him.
