You know when you look at a rainbow, and it’s so amazing it gets in your eyes and stays there all day? No? You’re about to, with today’s wonderfully colourful English wedding. The hot air balloon is only one of so many visual delights (and hey, if you’re training to be a balloon pilot!!!… it’s got to be done!) The styling and decor make this wedding so fabulously fun, unique and memorable – it has to be one of my favourite weddings on the blog this year. Gorgeous Kristy and Ollie shared lots of info about their day, so do read their fantastic interview after the images!

“We made our own invitations, created some of the venue styling pieces such as bunting, paper cranes, we put together some glass vials with wildflower seeds for wedding favours too. I was lucky to have some help from friends and family with all these.

What an amazing wedding this is – I’m so excited to share this wonderful day with you! The dried flowers are fabulous as far as details go, and I love Gemma & Christian to bits – their gorgeous smiles make this an unmissable day, it’s perfect for the blog!

Everything about Gemma & Christians wedding was super – from the traditional church wedding, to the dried floral headpieces, to the rustic DIY Barn with hay bales as walls, to the afternoon tea wedding breakfast!

Mine and my bridesmaids hair pieces were real dried vintage flowers, handmade, and into a headband for myself and three matching combs for my bridesmaids – the supplier was Folky Dokey. Very unique and again fitted the whole theme perfectly, carrrying the vintage style throughout. My shoes were my favourite shoe brand – Irregular Choice. They were lacy and slightly vintage to match my theme. I loved them. One of my bridesmaids bought me my blue garter and I carried a butterfly brooch on my bouquet from a close family friend who had recently passed away before the wedding, which was a lovely touch and felt very special for me to have close by.

Lizzie and Roddy are such a cute couple, don’t you think? Their day is graceful as can be, from the bouquet to the ballet at their evening reception… I absolutely love this and know you will too. Images are by the amazing Russian photographers Frant & Fifa.

“My wedding dress was the only wedding dress that I really liked the second I saw it on the hanger. A lot of the dresses I tried before I tried on to see what it will look like and to keep an open mind as I was giving various dresses a chance. It was love at first sight with my Katya Katya Shehurina Rosa Dress and I was just so excited to try it on. I was also absolutely sure that that dress is one of a kind and I have never seen a similar dress in other bridal shops or magazines.

Today’s wedding is absolutely stunning: full of vibrant flowers and filled with colour in every corner. Gorgeous bride and groom Amy & Tim love travelling, which is something they incorporated into their colourful wedding theme. The guest globe is genius; the table plan wonderful, the cake prettily perfect – and there’s so much more to this fantastic wedding, I know you’ll love it!

“Our wedding was very ‘us’ – everything we love and everyone we love all together on the perfect summer’s day. There was a summery, boho, chilled out vibe with the added burst of colour and vibrancy we love from our travels and that make summer so happy and full of life. A perfect day for us is fun, relaxed, full of music, laughter, food, cocktails and dancing under the sun and the stars – and that’s exactly what we did.”

We are surrounded by technology and every day it assists us more and more, even with wedding planning.  There are apps for keeping on top of your guest list, designing your table plan, to do lists and of course social media for sharing your images and seeing the photographs your guests take.  However, the speed in which technology evolves also comes with risks, and it’s those risks that are one of the big reasons we are so passionate about wedding albums.

Many of you are old enough to remember floppy discs, where did they go?!  Then there was the fact that every laptop had a CD drive and now as we move into more mobile devices, some don’t even have a USB drive.  So what does this mean for your wedding images?  Digital only collections are still in high demand, however you run the risk of your wedding images being stuck on a device that one day becomes obsolete.

Steph and Sean’s wedding is family focused, all about the party – it breaks any stuffy old rules about weddings… and it’s fabulous. The pretty summer flowers are gorgeous, the bride and groom look fantastic – this is real rock ‘n’ roll attitude with a modern twist and I LOVE it!

“The day forged a wonderful balance of fierce rock n’ roll attitude alongside a cool vintage playfulness that brought out some amazing and lively personalities to say the least! It was an absolute pleasure to capture them and their gorgeous (and hilarious) little family and my word what a fun day we had immersing ourselves in all of the action!” ~ York Place Studios

The romance of late summer sunshine in today’s wedding inspiration shoot has my heart. So many times I ask myself how I’d get married, and today is one of those days where I’m convinced I’d elope and say “I do” in France. The dreamiest images by amazing UK & destination photographer Victoria JK Lamburn have whisked me away to Paris today and as much as I try and concentrate on other work, my heart and mind are at le Tour Eiffel – and I’m in love!

I LOVE all the colour in Anna and John’s Hampshire wedding – it’s wonderful. Orchids and paper cranes in vibrant colours make this a real treat for my eyes – and this gorgeous couple put so much into decorating their venue, my screen looks like summer! Don’t miss their table plan – it truly is a work of art 🙂

John and I both have eclectic taste, we were both really influenced by travel especially to tropical lands. The bright and colourful flowers and decorations of these tropical destinations helped us to choose our colour scheme. I also have a love of orchids, they are so beautiful and elegant, origami cranes just felt right.

Our flowers were everything and more than we could have imagined! Lovely Lynne (http://www.fioribylynne.co.uk/) was amazing, her wealth of knowledge and ideas led to the creation of one of my favourite aspects of our day. The bright, colourful exotic flowers encompassed the theme of the wedding.

Josie and Simon’s wedding is just fabulous: the colour they created in every aspect of their day is just wonderful for a January wedding. Peacock feathers look stunning in a British flower bouquet; herbs as favours and place settings are perfect, and I adore Josie’s gorgeously vibrant wedding dress – you’ll love this!

Chance and Google led us to Carol. We knew that we would be getting married in an iconic venue, that needed someone who knew it to photograph it well. We searched for online portfolios of the Bodleian and found Carol’s. We liked the style of photography and we liked the range of couples in her photos – not all couples are 20-something instagram supermodels! Then we met her and she put us at ease, and we felt comfortable with her taking care of our special day.

The palest greys are stealing my heart this year – so many of you are incorporating beautiful, barely-there greys into your colour palettes for spring and summer weddings.

Grey is beautifully versatile and works with every flower you can imagine. This means the bouquet you’ll hold will look stunning with grey fabrics or accessories; table flowers will shine against delicate linens and silks; calligraphy will pop in gold or dove grey inks on the palest grey stationery. Today’s shoot by lovely Rachel Rose Photography has the most stunning ideas for this delicious colour alongside my favourite bridal separates by the amazing designer Ailsa Munro.

Rachel wanted to put together a photoshoot around her favourite colour – grey, and to give it a fresh and modern feel. The super simple bridal separates with just a hint of sweet bridal detailing set the theme for the whole day, from the simple detail shots with the rustic baguette to the beautifully elegant stationery.

I love today’s shoot – all the greenery is stunning, it’s wonderfully styled and absolutely beautiful. Botanicals is such a beautiful trend, and lush green leaves are key to styling this year – today we show how to incorporate a whole lot of fabulous textures into your botanicals inspired wedding.

The ideas here are wonderful – from a fabulous team of wedding suppliers whose vision comes to life at the fabulous Highcliffe Castle, in the gorgeous Wintergarden room with its glorious windows and light. The stunning bouquet of ferns and anemones is amazing; the metallics of the tablescape and cake are the perfect contrast with all the green… I hope you love it – please do Pin away to your heart’s content!

I’m so happy and excited to be welcoming another brilliant wedding photographer to my little team of handpicked sponsors on the blog today. Last summer I featured a stunning Somerset wedding sent in by lovely Martin Dabek Photography – the images still take my breath away today! It was the first of many weddings I’m looking forward to sharing on the English Wedding Blog, with Martin’s help, over the coming months.
