Hey lovelies! How are you all this beautiful Thursday morning? I’m already planning the blog for August – it’s a crazy busy summer of weddings which is wonderful 🙂 If there are any photographers out there who’d love to see their favourite summer weddings on the blog, do get in touch! I also have a handful of sponsor slots available from today, which I’m offering a lovely saving on – so pop me an email over if you’d like to know more (firstname.lastname@example.org) But most importantly – Amy and Mark. These two are just gorgeous, and their day is full of individuality and character – it’s just perfect. Images are by lovely English Wedding sponsor and Hertfordshire wedding photographer Becky Harley – and they’re outstanding. Becky gets a glowing review from our happy couple, who have shared all the details of their day with us here. I hope you love this one as much as I do!
Dominique and Nick’s wedding is beautiful – gracefully styled with exquisite florals and elegant touches throughout. Their venue needs no introduction: Pendrell Hall is one of our faves here at English Wedding HQ. Dominique looks so lovely in her dress, although she admits to having her bridal ‘moment’ when she fell in love with her shoes! (which are gorgeous!!) The focus of this fab couple’s wedding is most certainly on family, and that’s what we love most of all. Involving your children in your wedding is so important, and will make the day so much more special and memorable… even if you do end up lying on the floor in your wedding dress having Thomas the Tank Engine driven across your hair (seriously, one of my fave pics! Don’t miss it at the end of this blog post!)

Chloe and Sam’s chic Soho wedding is wonderfully non-traditional. I love Chloe’s approach to wedding planning – she avoided the traditional suppliers and sought out more unusual things to style their day. The venue (The Union Club) is fabulous – the surroundings just seem to suit Sam and Chloe perfectly, and I think the shots of them just loving walking to the venue and in the surrounding area are unique and fascinating! Flowers are by Wild at Heart and Chloe’s dress is from Phase Eight – doesn’t she look incredible?
My wedding dress was sparkly, chic and classic and fitted so nicely. We found it on a high street bridal window shopping spree to generate inspiration and it turned out to be the one. It was also under budget, I initially set out for a different design, I really wanted a loose, boho type dress with long sleeves but couldn’t find any ready to wear ones that I liked. It’s from Phase Eight at John Lewis bridal in Oxford Street.
I am desperate for summer to kick in! I know it’s only the 4th of February, but still… I can taste spring in the air, I’m sure I can. Maybe it’s these sunflowers…
Katie and Richard are gorgeous. Katie’s dress is just divine, and (as I think I mentioned yesterday!) I do love a couple who choose outfits with something just a little different. Honestly – this is such a personal and individual wedding and I think it’s fabulous. The day is bright and summery, their smiles are infectious, the styling touches they chose for their tipi reception are fabulously colourful and creative…

We met Becky at a wedding fair at Knebworth House. We were so pleased with everything. She made us feel so comfortable throughout the day. She was super chilled out and relaxed which is very much like me and Richard. Her photos were super relaxed and natural. She was so easy to have around which I think added to why her photos were so good as people were relaxed and she was never invasive with the camera. She managed to get some lovely natural photos of the kids who are very camera shy but you wouldn’t know it looking at the pictures. We couldn’t have been happier.

We love her style and passion for her work – this is an amazing prize for one of you lucky couples to win!
Alexandra and Damien were married in Bedfordshire in May. Their day is so pretty, with feminine flowers in soft shades – but I love how their focus is on family and celebrating their love. The special touches of fairy lights and pretty florals just make it all the more special, and lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Becky Harley Photography captures it all so beautifully…
I was four months pregnant when we walked down the aisle, so we felt blessed to have our little one with us on the day. We feel even more close now, a proper team! The wedding brought all our families and friends together and new friends were made, and old friends reacquainted.
We didn’t have a theme as such. We wanted the day to be relaxed and casual. As the venue (a country pub) was so beautiful already we didn’t need to do too much decorating.
Discovering new talents and finding new wedding pics to swoon over is what I live for – stumbling across photographers whose photos take my breath away is one of the very best things in my wedding blogging life! Today I’d love to introduce you to lovely Becky Harley Photography, who is based in Welwyn Garden City and shoots weddings throughout Hertfordshire and surrounding counties. Her style is fabulous – one glimpse at her website home page and you will fall in love. I did!
I’m Becky Harley, a wedding photographer based in Welwyn Garden City, in Hertfordshire. I love to capture natural images that are full of light, life and love!
I’ve always been interested in photography – I was always the one with the camera throughout school and university, and my parents actually have a little album of photos I took on a family trip to Disney, aged four, with a little disposable film camera. It’s mostly pictures of people’s legs, but still!
