I have a rare gem of an editorial shoot to share with you today, lovelies – a dreamy screenful of images which will warm your heart and bring sunshine to your soul. Maybe photoshoots are missing a trick by not capturing the sheer joy of a wedding: but today we set that to rights with the most beautiful girl in a truly incredible setting, smiling and enjoying every second of her day…

Getting ready photos and advice by Sally Rawlins (3)

by guest author Sally Rawlins Photography


My full day wedding photography package includes photographing your preparations on your wedding day. This means I’ll be there to capture the affectionately known ‘getting ready’ bits before the ceremony. For example, I’ll be able to document a bride having her hair and make up done before she gets into her dress, and the candid ‘behind the scenes’ moments that your other half won’t get to see. It might be the girls in matching wedding day pyjamas, busting open the prosecco, or capturing the groom and gents working out exactly how their cufflinks work. Not only do these shots give you a brilliant reminder of all the fun, nervousness and adrenaline of getting ready before saying “I Do”, but they are also a great keepsake particularly as your partner won’t have seen them first hand!


Happy Valentines Day everyone! I’m surrounded with flowers…. happily working on a little photoshoot this morning which I can’t wait to show you! For any newly engaged couples (Congratulaaaaations!!!) I quickly wanted to introduce The English Wedding Directory today. Along with our real couples’ recommendations on their features, the Directory is where you can find all of our favourite wedding suppliers. Our Facebook page is updated with new vendors when they join us, and the Directory is full of brilliant photographers, stationers, florists, stylists, planners… everything you might need for the wedding of your dreams!

I think there are two sides to putting together any amazing wedding: the look and design on one hand and then the planning and ‘making it happen’ on the other. In my book, both are super important. Today, I’m focusing on the planning side of pulling together an unforgettable wedding celebration – the importance of the timings and how on earth it’s all going to flow. Have you ever been to a party billed as “the best event ever” only to feel slightly underwhelmed? Not by the lack of design or “pretty” WOW-factor but by the fact that you weren’t fed in time and/or enough, or it took ages to get a drink? It’s these details that can really dampen an atmosphere. Planning out your wedding day, what will happen and when deserves attention.

I love to start the week with an amazing wedding to completely knock your little socks off and take your mind off work! If you’ve had enough of the daily grind already, then this beautiful celebration is guaranteed to brighten your day and add a little spring to your steps!

Beautiful Beckie and Max were married at Cooling Castle Barn in March last year. Their spring wedding is wonderful – another (we’re on a roll this week!) which absolutely proves you can have a stunning bouquet this early in the season – in fact I’d say spring is my favourite for bouquet inspiration!
