Weddings are the most wonderful of days; a tapestry of moments is woven together from the smiles, laughter and love of friends and family – and this is true no matter where you choose to marry. Rob and Michele chose a London city centre location for their day. They walked to the venue together (I’d love to see more couples doing this… I LOVE that nervous excitement can be shared!) and from that moment onwards the day is blissfully happy.

Sophisticated wedding at One Great George Street by Arusha's Images Photography (15)

Words & images by Arusha’s Images Photography

I loved photographing this city wedding in London: I always enjoy photographing the life, colours, grandeur and contrast of a city wedding. This wedding was so packed full of memorable moments, I loved that the grooms decided to walk to their venue together through the back streets of London to Westminster. It also allowed me to photograph their walk from a distance, as they shared some fun and intimate moments with the city as a backdrop.

Happy new week everyone! Let’s begin with something beautiful today… a deliciously pretty pastel themed wedding in Lancashire – and the most adorable little family at the centre of it all. Gill and Ash were married at Beeston Manor and their wedding is all about love and family – and all the more beautiful for it.

The details are divine; the bride and groom sooo gorgeous, and their little boy is absolutely adorable. Every moment, every detail of the day is captured beautifully by Lancashire wedding photographer Arusha’s Images Photography, who Gill and Ash highly recommend! “Arusha is such a wonderful photographer, she photographed our day perfectly, our wedding photos are just so gorgeous and romantic, and are the perfect reminder of our wonderful wedding day, thank you.”

Words by Arusha:

Gill and Ash are such a lovely couple, there was some time in between them organising their wedding and the actual day, so much in fact that they moved and renovated a house, had an absolutely adorable baby boy, and planned all their wedding day! Bearing this in mind, it was a real family day.

Matching your wedding style with your venue is easy when you find a welcoming home-from-home which has years of character and charm in its very walls. Nestled among Lake District roads, with views to the distant hills and plenty of nooks and crannies for your guests to discover, is The Plough at Lupton, where today’s vintage-inspired shoot took place.

We have everything feminine and pretty with a sassy 1950s twist – a stunning hand painted wedding cake (the colours are SO fabulous for 2016!), a sweet little vintage rose bouquet and a real vintage coach which almost steals the show! (Seriously: hats off to the vintage bus drivers of Cumbria; I’m a local girl and I know our roads. You are legends!) Oh, and did I mention the festoon lighting from Typical Type? It’s divine… and I’d never seen anything like it before 2016. Definitely a must-have for weddings with plenty going on outside!

I’ve been excited about today’s wedding style feature for SO long… you see I was in at the beginning, chatting about colours and style ideas for the calligraphy element of the day even before it happened. I knew a little of what was planned… but oh my, how beautiful it all turned out to be.

Lovely Arusha’s Images Photography organised the shoot with a dream team of suppliers: the Charlie Brear bridal separates are out of this world; the styling of the venue inside and out is gorgeous; and those lovely light-up letters by Typical Type are always guaranteed to brighten my day!

I’ll share the shoot in two parts: there were two distinct looks on the day and I wanted to show you all the ideas for a vibrant country wedding style first. Later this week we’ll see how a country wedding venue can play perfect host to a more vintage-inspired affair!

What an amazing week it’s been! We’ve featured some of the loveliest real weddings I’ve seen all year, had some interesting chats on Facebook, indulged in stunning styled shoots and now, to end the week on a high I’d like to introduce someone I believe you’ll have seen already on the English Wedding Blog: lovely Arusha, aka Arusha’s Images Photography.

Arusha is joining my little team of handpicked sponsors and will be sharing her real weddings, styled shoots and more on the English Wedding Blog over the next few months. Her images are gorgeous: she combines reportage and fine art photography and shoots weddings in the Lake District, throughout Cumbria and the north west- and further afield too!

“I am a romantic at heart, and see my work as being a witness to love, and recording that. I love being able to photograph each of my couple’s unique wedding days in my relaxed and natural style.”

No two weddings are ever the same – every one is different because ultimately they come down to personality. And that’s why I love writing about weddings so much! Weddings are as unique as fingerprints: your stories will be as different as your choices of venue, photographer and details…

and oh, do I have a stunning styled shoot for you this afternoon! Hot from the lens of photographer Arusha this one blasts red, white and blue – and takes inspiration from the more luxurious aspects of the venue where the shoot took place.

Arusha told me, “I love the age old romance of red roses, and took inspiration from a poem, this time by Robert Burns:

“My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June:
My love is like a melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.”

I felt that with the red roses, and the red Jaguar I sourced, that other strong colours would naturally be blue and bridal white: so red, white and blue it was.

Two of my best friends got married at Holbeck Ghyll – it’s one of the Lake District’s loveliest wedding venues and is set on a peaceful hillside away from the world outside. It’s a dream venue. And so when I heard about this gorgeous shoot from Arusha’s Images Photography I simply had to see more.

Themes and venues go hand in hand – fact. If you’ve decided on your theme you’ll need to find a venue where you can make it work… and sometimes that can be tricky. Vintage won’t work in a modern hotel. Art deco won’t work in a barn. Let your venue inspire your theme then… as Arusha did with this beautifully curated shoot…

We’re talking light and pretty photography with vast skies and pastel details. Our bride and groom are in nature: on Holbeck Ghyll’s terrace all you can see are mountains and the sparkling Lake Windermere – and by the lake there’s a jetty perfect for slipping toes into the gentle waves of England’s largest lake. Could anything be more perfect for an elegant bohemian wedding?

Morning everyone! I have a fabulous wedding for you this morning – but first, quickly, any suppliers who’d like a May advertising spot please do email me! I have a couple more spaces to fill for next month and I’m looking for applications today 🙂

I loved the rich, vibrant colours of Katie and Damian’s Lancashire wedding as soon as I saw them – the rustic styling is beautifully done, and all of the DIY elements of today’s wedding are bound to inspire some of you!

Gorgeous bride Katie has shared some lovely tips on budgeting, crafting and planning their wedding day, and her advice is wonderful: “Stay true to you and your husband-to-be’s wishes as other people will certainly have their input in the matter but you have to do what you want as it’s your day. Savour every second as it truly does fly by and set a limit of meeting and greeting.”
