Today’s shoot is so full of ideas I just had to share it with you. From hand painted calligraphy signage to a floral swing, copper-splashed stationery and a fabulously elegant see-through table plan – there are so many things you could take and use for your own weddings. I’m starting the feature with a handful of images taken at dusk because they’re just SO beautiful! Huge thanks to Anne at Elizabeth Rose Events for sharing this with us all today – you can find a full supplier list at the end of the feature. All images are by Naomi Gabrielle Photography.
Is anyone else dreaming of summer breezes and pretty country flowers already? I know I’m a little early… but already we’re planning blog features for late spring and I’m excited to see long, golden wedding days on my screen again! Let’s spoil ourselves this cold Wednesday morning and pretend we’re back in July with gorgeous Alex & Jamie’s wedding, shall we?
The venue was Pendley Manor, a magnificent country home with 33 4-poster bedrooms and expanses of immaculate lawns and landscaped gardens. The hotel is grade II listed and set in 35 acres of beautifully landscaped and wooded parkland close to the picturesque Hertfordshire town of Tring.
I know a lot of guys who’d agree with me that Rushia and David’s wedding is damn near perfect. There’s a bathtub full of cold Budweiser bottles, a chilled out firepit, music, a BBQ buffet – the groom looks awesome in a skull patterned waistcoat and his groomsmen are rocking very cool, mismatched (ie their own) suits! Of course perfection comes from having such a beautiful bride with the prettiest bouquet, gorgeous Sophia Tolli dress and bridesmaids in pink sparkly dresses… this is a really amazing wedding and I just know you’re going to love it! Watch out for creatively-named place settings(!), vintage vehicles and a confetti cannon!
These two gorgeous people know how to get married in style. I was over the moon to feature their joyful elopement photos last year; roll on a few months and I’m even happier to see and share their fabulous wedding blessing and party with you all. I’m 100% of the opinion that a wedding doesn’t have to be formal, or follow traditions or rules, or include even the slightest little nod to etiquette… all that matters is that you LOVE getting married and you celebrate in the way that means most to you, as a couple.
Liz and Richard’s day couldn’t have been more perfect for the English Wedding Bible, with their afternoon tea followed by a trip on a red vintage bus to the beautiful Great House at Sonning! My favourite shots of their day are on page 132 of our digital magazine, but I simply had to show you some more on the blog!
Liz’s dress – from the Willowby by Watters collection – is absolutely beautiful, and she suits it so perfectly as though it was made for her. Richard in his Reiss suit is just as gorgeous as his bride, and their little family makes this one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen recently.
