Some wedding photographers are brilliant. Some bowl me over with their gorgeous images, their empathy, their signature styles. And (shhh) I have favourites. Sounds a little unfair, unprofessional even, doesn’t it?

Bear with me. 😉

Why do wedding photographers submit to blogs?

An easy question. For free promotion of their work to a huge readership. Top reason.

Also – for their brides and grooms. If you’d like to have your wedding featured on a blog, mention it to your photographer! They’re lovely people, and if you’ve found your photographer on a wedding blog it’s more than likely they’ll be happy to submit your wedding!


Hello beautiful 🙂

I don’t often share my own work on the pages of the English Wedding Blog, but with instructions from lovely Charlotte at Eden & Eve to ‘shout from the rooftops’ about our styled shoot I simply can’t resist. Today’s feature is a little one focusing on my calligraphy – to see the full shoot you need to head over to the fabulous Rock My Wedding blog (do!) Wedding Bohemia at the Old Mill

Are you looking for a special, handcrafted touch for your wedding? Something two steps across the border into more unusual territory? Something your guests will admire, and touch, and talk about, and then take home and put on their mantelpiece?


Elinor – beautiful, stunning bride and super stylish lady! – told me she never wanted her wedding day to end. She married Nick at lovely Hendre Hall a few weeks ago, and I’m so thrilled to be able to share their day with you lovely blog readers today.

Friends and family “ambushed” Elinor’s plans for dressing the venue the day before the wedding… and did the most amazing job turning a blank canvas into a really exciting and pretty space which Elinor and Nick really loved. How sweet is that?!

The most important part of your wedding day will be – I imagine – when you both say ‘I do’. But when I asked Ben Toms (my Kent wedding photographer friend) about his most important time of a wedding day, his response was super interesting – I think you’ll find this very, very useful…

There are usually two hours or so between the end of a wedding ceremony and the start of the meal where the most important wedding photographs all happen. These are the moments you’ll cherish forever: some you’ll have seen, some you’ll be in! – and some you’ll have missed on the day and will treasure for years to come.


Wedding crafting doesn’t have to be difficult – and you can easily avoid the tricky bits by choosing your crafty projects carefully. For example: table plans can take weeks to finalise; invitations are fiddly and there are usually dozens of them – avoid! The best approach to wedding DIY is to make fun, easy, decorative touches which won’t steal your weekends away! I have another awesome wedding DIY project from the lovely girls at AO Life to share with you today. Enjoy!
