Weddings aren’t just for women. The wedding industry often ignores grooms – focusing every publication and brand on all things pink, pretty and romantic. But there are two halves to every wedding, and I think it’s a fairly safe bet that over half of the humans getting married wouldn’t choose pale blush and ivory as the most important aspects of their day.

Think about it.


Happy Friday my lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a brilliant week and are ready for the weekend… which starts, for me, pretty much now!! Before I reach for a prosecco though, I LOVE today’s featured wedding and have been so excited to share it with you!!! Gorgeous Krissy and Simon’s beach pics are my fave, they’re wonderful.

Super lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Ayshea Goldberg got in touch a little while ago  with this lovely wedding from May. She told me the weather wasn’t great (VERY windy and chilly) but Krissy and Simon still insisted on going to the beach for their photos – and we’re both thrilled that they did!


Gill and Andy’s wedding is like a dream – the perfect beach location; breathtaking spots for those keep-forever photographs and the prettiest of seaside styling touches. They married at Tunnels Beaches in Devon, and chose Evolve Photography to capture their day and the fabulous Pumpkin & Pye for beautiful florals.

Gill’s bridal separates are exquisite – she knew she wanted a skirt and a top rather than a dress. “I tried on about 20 different dresses before I found a store that had a skirt and a top. I knew as soon as I put it on that it was the one! The designer was Karen Willis Holmes and the boutique I bought it from was Martin Charles Bridal in Peterborough. I couldn’t recommend Martin highly enough. He is incredibly talented and made my dress fit like a glove.

I actually get butterflies when I scroll through these images. The spirit of our wild coastline is captured so perfectly, peacefully, bringing a sense of oneness with nature. I adore the landscapes – the dramatic Cornish coastline holds a piece of my heart, always. This is more than a collection of images: this is the freedom of spirit, the beauty I’d want to feel on my wedding day.

The incredible bridal separates are by Cornwall-based dressmaker Ailsa Munro. Ailsa’s bridalwear is insanely beautiful to wear, with such wonderful fabrics you’ll be smitten instantly. Any beach bride would feel like a goddess in this, don’t you think?


Almost every morning you’ll find me on the beach, or in the hills gazing down at the estuary below the village where I live. I have a thing for beach weddings – they’re the most amazing thing ever! I love the portraits of Michael & Sara, especially the black & white images on the sand… they’re gorgeous and this is incredible!

Photographers Emily & Steve told me “The Grand Hotel in Swanage is perched right on a cliff with steps down to the beach! It was stunning and the perfect location for a summer wedding. It was the first wedding we’ve been to where the guests suddenly started to serenade the couple with ‘Love is all around’. They were all swaying their arms and really getting into it! It was so much fun!”
