With Benjamin Toms

.

The title sounds like a dirty joke, but today’s feature article is about respect and negotiation. It’s about understanding different perspectives on marriage and working with some very key people to create wonderful memories of your marriage ceremony.

I’ve met some amazing vicars at weddings: the ones with beaming smiles who make guests feel incredibly welcome and the ones who make a little joke to diffuse tension around the room. The same goes for registrars, and I was chatting to Kent wedding photographer Benjamin Toms about the lovely registrars and vicars he’s worked with too. This feature article is based on our conversation and with his excellent and generous advice.

You’ll have seen beautiful ceremony photos on wedding blogs: the bride walking down the aisle, the first glance between bride and groom, the exchange of rings, the ‘you may kiss the bride’ moment and the occasional giggle as a toddler joins in with the ceremony perhaps. One of my favourite images is of a pew full of bridesmaids smiling with tears in their eyes… but it’s not an image you’ll see at every wedding.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had the loveliest weekends… and for anyone who’s not in a work mood right now I have a really charming DIY wedding to share with you. Matt and Steph were married at The Ashes in Staffordshire and poured their hearts into creating a pretty day full of little details and DIY touches.

Steph’s Mum was a star, crafting so many of the tiny details of the day. Steph told me, “We went a little mad on the decor and had loads of flowers, vases, candles and ornaments but it all worked out and looked beautiful!”

Is it just me or has ‘vintage’ become such a big theme it’s been lost in translation? For true vintage bridal inspiration you need to look a little further these days, so it was with interest I began talking to lovely Elisabeth from Amamini Flowers in May. Elisabeth had worked with Heartfelt Vintage and Su Barclay to create a showcase shoot of vintage dresses from the 1920s through to the 1970s, along with authentic flowers to suit each era.

True vintage brides will find this one very interesting… Elisabeth explains how she created authentic bouquets and floral accessories for each part of the styled shoot, and to complement each vintage inspired gown. Images are by lovely Su Barclay who told me, “I have been working with Heartfelt Vintage for the past 4 years. Kate Ashwell the owner has a wonderful selection of bridal gowns and accessories and I love the way they range from the 1920s up to the 1970s – basically any era can be catered for and Kate sources them individually for clients as part of the service.

Hannah and David really are the sweetest couple, and their vintage tea party wedding is wonderful. The little details and handmade touches make this a very special day – by being thrifty today’s bride and groom could afford a reception in a venue they’d had their eye on for eight whole years!

A pretty vintage tea party wedding at the Barns Hotel with Amanda Karen Photography (36)

So many brides tell me it’s hard to relax on the day, but Hannah’s lovely approach worked well: “I thought I would stress too much, but I actually stayed calm in the knowledge that we were getting married and it didn’t matter about minor things.” The smiles prove it!

Every wedding is different: the details make a day different and so do the memories… and every bride and groom have something amazing to offer a wedding blogger like me. Today’s stunning bride Kirsty surprised me with this: “At the end of the night when everybody had left we sat on the head table with a bottle of bubbles for an hour just chatting about the day. We could still feel the buzz from the room from the day which was really quite incredible, it was a really special moment for us.

How many of you can imagine doing this after your big day? What a wonderful memory… and for this beautiful bride and gorgeous groom it’s one of so many special moments to treasure.

Kirsty and Rod had a lovely rustic wedding at Winters Barns near Canterbury, captured on camera by photographer Nick at Parkershots. Do take a few minutes to discover Parkershots for yourself…

There’s a wonderful story behind every wedding, and you really mustn’t miss today’s! Samantha and Jamie are not only gorgeous – like, ridiculously stunning, the pair of them! – but they have shared some lovely pearls of wisdom in their English Wedding Blog interview. What a super couple… you’ll love them!

A real wedding at Eridge Park with Steve Fuller Photography (13)

For example, Samantha did an hour of yoga on the morning of her wedding. What a wonderful way to relax! Every guest had a personal, handwritten message on the day, and there were no expensive wedding favours. The advice from today’s bride is priceless: “Spend on the memorable and impactful elements and cut back on those that seem important during the planning stages but on the day are quickly forgotten.

A real wedding at Eridge Park with Steve Fuller Photography (15)

Images are by documentary wedding photographer Steve Fuller, who is based in Kent. Steve told me Eridge Park was a wonderful wedding venue with breathtaking views of the Kent countryside – it’s a private home with space for a garden marquee which meant Samantha and Jamie had the perfect blank canvas to style their day as well as incredible grounds and landscapes to enjoy!

Often a wedding will catch my eye for its simple elegance – there is sometimes a sparkle, a hint of beauty in the images which I can’t put a finger on. Theresa and Anastasios’s big day is one of those. They were married at Statham Lodge earlier this year and focused on a simple, classy celebration for their friends and family to enjoy.

Beautiful real wedding at Statham Lodge with Jo Bradbury Photography (18)

I adore the images of Theresa with her little boy – she’s such a beautiful bride I couldn’t resist sharing all the most loving moments of this wedding day with you. Grab a tissue as well as a cuppa, because there might be a few tears!

Where to begin

The home page of the English Wedding Blog – http://english-wedding.com – shows the most recent articles I’ve published. Most are real weddings, with the occasional styled ideas shoot or supplier feature. They’re organised by date with the most recent at the top, and there’s a link at the bottom of the page to ‘older posts’.

Reading the blog this way is lovely… like flicking through a magazine where you know you’ll stumble across something wonderful 🙂

Danielle and Chris’s wedding is beautiful: very much a quintessentially English celebration with handmade touches and the loveliest flowers you can imagine.

The gorgeous couple married at a local church in Warwickshire and had a reception in a marquee near the bride’s family home. I just love the little details, and how lucky were they to have such wonderful weather?!

Danielle is absolutely stunning: she’s such a pretty bride and I love how her eyes light up when she looks at Chris. They make such a wonderful couple. Danielle’s English Wedding Blog interview (scroll down!) is fantastic, and I wanted to share a snippet right from the start: “Don’t stress: what will be will be! Remember it is meant to be a happy day – you are marrying your love.”

I love letters. Writing has always been my life: from a secret love of spelling tests to language studies and then calligraphy… so I absolutely adore the striking look of light up letters. I have something very special for you (ok, for me!! but I know you’ll love it too!) this Friday morning 🙂

Light up letters wedding inspiration with Words to Glow and McAvoy Photography (6)

Coordinated by the super organised and undeniably talented McAvoy Wedding Photography and featuring a fantastic weekday collaboration of local wedding supplier talent, today’s fabulously decadent photo shoot was an event that Words To Glow were only too delighted to contribute to. Featuring a beautiful seaside location, a wonderfully decadent hotel and oodles of sophistication to boot, what was not to love about this little beauty!

Light up letters wedding inspiration with Words to Glow and McAvoy Photography (7)

On the day of the shoot itself, the sun shone brightly and the dream team were lucky enough to be able to shoot in various locations, both inside and outside the Midland Hotel. Situated right on the curve of Morecambe’s seafront, the hotel was built in 1933 and as such maintains a distinct Art Deco feel to its interior and thus provided the initial inspiration behind the day’s shoot.
