Do you love where you live? Do you have a favourite place where you can disappear and just sink yourself into a feeling of how beautiful the world is? I’m lucky: there are so many spots around my home on the edge of the Lakes, and it’s wonderful to see amazing photographers appreciating just how stunning this place is. Wedding photographer Jo Bradbury just took the place I love to a whole new level...

Coastal wedding shoot English Wedding Blog with Jo Bradbury Photography (29)

The striking seashore at Rampside on the edge of The Lake District was the inspiration behind this coastal styled shoot. With its quirky Victorian lighthouse, rusting fishing boats and grey green seagrass the shoreline made a perfect backdrop for a romantic and elegant sea themed bridal look.


I have a little treat for you this Sunday morning… so stay snuggled up with a cuppa and enjoy this pretty country garden celebration from Eastclose Hotel in the New Forest – the flowers are gorgeous, and Kerrie-Ann is breathtaking in her Suzanne Neville gown from Brides of Winchester.

Images are by Jake Moore Photography, who told me “having been to school with Kerrie-Ann it made it so much easier for me to shoot her day plus go more unnoticed than usual as a photographer. I felt more like a guest than at work! The venue is perfect for weddings and each time I go there it gets better with more detail added. The weather always helps as the grounds are too beautiful to miss out on a wedding day.”


Matching your wedding style to your venue can be easy when you have a blank canvas (a marquee or a purpose-built venue) but when you’re marrying at a stately home or boutique hotel it’s easy to confuse styles. I always encourage couples to consider the style of their venue when making decisions on wedding decor: a boho look won’t work in a modern hotel, just as a classic wedding dress can look out of place in a field at a festival wedding. Stately homes are our classic venue choice, but how can you make sure your styling options aren’t limited?


I love Leah & Brian: she’s absolutely gorgeous and wears her dress like it was made for her, and the beach portraits of them together are divine. They make the loveliest couple and have some really sweet details too: the little hearts on the wishing tree, the flowers (especially that lovely little fern leaf bouquet), and I really love the looks they exchange through the ceremony!

Are you a happy, smiling, gorgeous bride to be? We’re planning a special inspiration shoot in September and we’re looking for a model to join us for the day in the south Lakes. You’ll be featured on the blog and get a set of beautiful digital images to keep – as well as having a great day out modelling for our friendly team. You’ll also get a happy feeling in your tummy from being a little bit famous on the English Wedding Blog, I hope!
