What can I say about these lovely two?… they’re gorgeous. Their wedding is just as gorgeous. The spirit of their day is fun and full of character – and there are so many fabulous little touches I know will inspire you. Chloe & James – we love your wedding!

We had a cake made by James’s mum and all the flowers were also handmade from sugar paste. My sister made the confetti from dried rose petals and we used the handmade bunting she had for her wedding 4 years earlier. My mum made the place scrolls and handwrote each guests name and menu choices. My parents also made the table plan display from old book covers. It really made it such a special day having people contribute.

Hello again! Today’s blog feature aims to take a little stress out of wedding planning by shifting the focus of English Wedding Blog away from details for a while – and by looking at the memories you’ll treasure for the rest of your lives.

This is another episode in my ‘Focus on‘ series of wedding blogs. I was inspired by Kristin Mitchell to consider weddings from a photographer’s perspective. Your wedding will last for one day. Your wedding photographs will keep the day alive in your memories forever.

Think about your wedding for a moment. In the run up to the big day it’s so easy to get wrapped up in details: planning colour schemes, buying accessories and stretching the wedding budget to its limit. But in a year’s time when you look back on your big day you’ll barely remember all the ‘bits’. You’ll remember special moments instead: the ceremony, seeing your family and friends in church, a chat with a favourite auntie and the precious minutes you can spend together as a married couple.

If this doesn’t get your toes swinging and your face smiling I don’t know what will.

Thanks to wedding photographer Matt Parry for sharing his best bits of last year! He says, “although I couldn’t squeeze everybody’s venue, cake, feet, smiles, shoes, laughter, silly dancing, tears, children and drunken guests into 4 minutes 30 seconds hopefully it will give you a flavour of my year and how much fun and emotion plays out in front of my lens… enjoy! photos by me and music by “allo darlin‘”
