You can’t beat a wedding with a really fun story. Lovely Jade and Carl invited all of their guests to their children’s christening – and surprised them with an extra: they got MARRIED!! It makes the photos of the beginning of the day even more special, knowing that for most of the guests, the whole thing was a secret surprise!

Images are by lovely Fiona at Anoif Photography, who gets a fabulous review from Jade and Carl in their interview (at the end of the blog post). Photography was the couple’s biggest spend, and one they’re very glad of – for while this was very much a DIY wedding on a budget, the images will last a lifetime and I love the piece of family history they’ve captured for our lovely bride and groom!

Warm out there, isn’t it?!! I’m loving how summery I’m feeling this week – and just before I take my little packed lunch to the beach (because I’m the luckiest wedding blogger and it’s like 2 minutes’ walk!) I have this stunning summer wedding to share with you. Beautiful bride Victoria got in touch with me a few weeks ago. She married Stephen last July and chose a quintessentially English theme for their wedding day.

I loved hearing about Victoria’s dress: it was handmade for her by a family friend, along with her mum’s dress and the four bridesmaids’ dresses. Victoria was really involved in the process, and able to choose the fabric (Thai Silk), shape (A-Line) and detailing on her dress. Silk covered buttons ran all the way down the back of the gown, with the top button covered in lace from Victoria’s grandmother’s wedding dress. Oh, and pockets! Her dream dress looks fabulous – as if it were made especially for her – and it was!

We’re leaping into Wednesday with an excited squeal and a breathtaking dose of beautiful lavender. Today’s editorial will steal your heart if you’re looking for a traditional English countryside wedding with a modern aesthetic. The look is stylish and romantic, timeless and natural, with unique details. The images by Suzy Elizabeth Photography are wonderfully light and airy, styling by Wedding Elements is perfectly, beautifully on point. Our venue for the day is Nether Winchendon House, set in seven acres of traditional gardens and hundreds of acres of parkland on the Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire border.

Taking inspiration from a classic Oxfordshire countryside manor, this shoot captures the romance and beauty of an English rose marrying her true love. Combining traditional elements with modern features and luxury handmade details, the shoot brings together the principal elements of a modern couple in a traditional setting. With a colour palette of lavender and sage, and hints of silver and copper, reflecting the rich colours of the stunning Oxfordshire gardens.

I promised you a stunning editorial today and I hope you’ll agree this more than fits the bill! Romantic, boho bridal style and a bold take on an ever-popular modern colour palette make this shoot an absolute dream. We’re at The Walled Gardens in Nottingham with lovely Nicole & Charlotte Events and a host of rather brilliantly talented local wedding suppliers. The colour palette for table styling is rich and exciting, with teal, grey and copper making the perfect backdrop for a loose bouquet of roses, berries and eucalyptus. Enjoy!

“The theme for our shoot was ‘Rustic Boho’, using the colours grey, copper and teal. The team we chose to work with were amazing, and really brought our vision to life!

The setting for our shoot was The Walled Garden at Beeston Fields, which really complimented the boho, countryside look we were aiming for. We were able to use the beautiful gardens, as well as the permanent marquee which has roll up sides, looking out onto the gardens. The weather was also on our side – it was beautiful!

Hey beautiful! Welcome to the weekend… and with an early morning blog post because I simply couldn’t wait any longer to share this with you! Wonderful Sussie Mellstedt sent in this dreamy editorial full of spring florals and with a breathtaking bespoke wedding dress by Velvet Johnstone. Delicious florals by Iris & Co complement the dress perfectly, and the wonderfully natural images just go to show that a little rain can never dampen the beauty of an English wedding.

The lovely bouquet was made by Iris & co. Gemma had picked springy colours such as orange, yellow and purple.

Shall we give Friday an amazing send off with a beautiful real wedding?  I have this one up my sleeve – stunning bride Amy and her dapper hubby George, who were married at Fanhams Hall in Hertfordshire. They chose our friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography to capture their day – and the images tell the loveliest story of a fabulous, elegant and fun wedding!

I love the atmosphere of Fanhams Hall: it’s a wonderfully historical venue with that unmistakeable Great Hall – an awe inspiring setting for a wedding breakfast. Amy & George held their ceremony in the Long Gallery at Fanhams before moving into the Great Hall for the celebrations afterwards. They decorated tables minimally with ivy and fairy lights – sweet and simple for a (dare I say it?) December wedding!

Huge thanks to Nicola Norton for sharing this day with us, and to Amy & George for letting us share their day on English Wedding!

Weddings aren’t just for women. The wedding industry often ignores grooms – focusing every publication and brand on all things pink, pretty and romantic. But there are two halves to every wedding, and I think it’s a fairly safe bet that over half of the humans getting married wouldn’t choose pale blush and ivory as the most important aspects of their day.

Think about it.

So I love seeing weddings where real life stands at the forefront. Moments, smiles, emotions, interactions between all the human beings who are there. Being a blogger means I know a lot of photographers: most folks I follow on instagram happen to be wedding photographers. And I get to see their other work: the real life things they capture* and my favourite of all, their street photography. And when this style creeps into a wedding it is one of the best things EVER.

You don’t like them*, but you think you probably want them*. For your mum, or your gran, or his auntie and all the people who love the family gathering aspect of weddings above anything else. You dread them* – but secretly you know that in 20 years time you will have a tear in your eye as they* become rare and treasured memories of your loved ones. And you worry a little, because you’re not sure if taking them* is going to be a bore, or a bit shouty and embarrassing, or if your uncle Raymond is going to disappear for a fag while it’s all going on (true story!) – but you know it’s a thing and it has to be done

* You guessed it – “they” are wedding group shots. And they’re a bit of a thing!
