It’s always fantastic to see wedding stationery taking centre stage in a beautiful shoot, and this lush feature on the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners’ blog caught my eye for all the fabulous details. It exudes luxury with a warming colour combination of pink and orange roses. Glassware is edged with gold leaf and the handwritten calligraphy adds a delicious finishing touch to the table decor.

It’s a bit spooky: the second wedding in as many weeks I’ve seen from The Ashes – a wedding venue I hadn’t heard of before. But it’s gorgeous: as we sink into autumn this wedding has all the loveliest, richest autumn colours and tones – like a virtual hot toddy in the world of wedding blogs.

The wedding day begins with this beautifully cold countryside scene – this is The Ashes wedding venue in the heart of Staffordshire, a grade two listed family home with converted barns providing the perfect secluded setting for a private wedding reception.

This wedding was submitted by Vickerstaff Photography in Cheshire. Jamie and Tory Vickerstaff are experienced wedding photographers – and I love that their wedding photography blog shows as much excitement, passion and enjoyment of every wedding they photograph, after more than 200 weddings!

Jamie Vickerstaff writes up a great blog post with every wedding feature over at www.vickerstaffphotography.co.uk/blog so I can tell you that Rachel and the girls had a lovely little cottage as part of The Ashes wedding venue complex where all the bridal preparations took place.

I LOVE this photograph - Lucy looks regal and out-of-this-world beautiful

I LOVE this photograph - Lucy looks regal and out-of-this-world beautiful

Sometimes everything in life comes together and a lightbulb flickers on, don’t you think? It’s happened for me – gradually – over the past month or so. I won’t bore you with details (well, I might, but in a later post) – suffice it to say that Creativity is my newest raison d’être.

I love how weddings provide everyone with an opportunity to be creative, and that those who do have their own very individual ways of realising their creativity. Lucy and James’s wedding is a beautiful, quite normal English wedding with a little twist of creativity which makes it ever so special.

There are two things I love about this wedding, and I hope you will too. The creative touches which sang out to me (you’ll get that in a minute) are Lucy’s beautiful fluffy white shrug – an accessory with a dash of originality which makes her look ice-queen-esque – and her performance.

A favourite photograph of Liz and Jon, so much in love.

A favourite photograph of Liz and Jon, so much in love.

The first engagement shoot I ever featured on English Wedding was of Liz and Jon – a Cheshire bride- and groom-to-be whose lovely photos had me completely hooked.

Two months have absolutely flown by, and I can now very happily blog Liz and Jon’s wedding day for you. This couple wear their hearts on their sleeves – so the photos might just bring a tear to your eye. They did for me!

Their photographer was Adam from ARJ Photography in Manchester. There is definitely something special about Manchester wedding photographers and Adam is no exception: a creatively cheeky element always comes shining through – in Liz and Jon’s case, it’s bathtubs!
