Today’s is a traditional wedding on an impressive scale – with some gorgeous photographs and beautiful moments I know you’ll adore. The stunning bride and groom are Jessica and Michael, who told me “we had over 300 guests with the majority being loud old Chinese ladies(!!), this would be daunting and difficult for anyone, but Duncan handled it all smoothly“, their photographer being Newcastle wedding photographer Duncan McCall Photography.

Supporting little indie businesses is wonderful. There are hundreds of amazing and dedicated independent designers pouring their hearts and souls into their creations – and having to compete with the big boys. It ain’t easy – so every little bit of support you can give to indie wedding stationers is worth its weight in gold. Here are some of my favourite wedding invitations featuring pretty, quirky and unique illustrations.

I was chatting with a friend yesterday and the words “like a princess” came into our conversation – and we chuckled. Neither of us are princessy girls… and yet, doesn’t everyone want to be the centre of someone’s universe sometimes?
That feeling of “like a princess” applies to relationships as much as it does to weddings. I’ve heard so many stories from brides-to-be finding their dress: ‘The One” – and having that princess feeling! Until now I’ve always felt a little apart from that; I’m no Cinderella, I’ve never worn a cocktail dress or ballgown – it just isn’t me. And when it comes to wedding dresses, I’d go as alternative as I could get away with! See more...
America has its vineyards – the most amazing wedding receptions in the US seem to take place at vineyard locations, don’t they? – but they’ll never, ever rival the charm and quintessentially English atmosphere of a Kent apple orchard. Edward and Saori chose the loveliest venue for their Japanese & English fusion wedding… and every detail, every image is just perfect.
Images are by Kent wedding photographer Nick at Parkershots. Do take a few minutes to discover Parkershots for yourself…
A little while ago I asked for any suggestions of wedding loveliness I might feature on the blog, and some of the replies I had – from couples, designers and wedding suppliers – were amazing! One who really stood out from the crowd was lovely Alice Palace, whose wedding invitations are so original and charming I don’t think they will ever date!
