Good morning lovely wedding blog readers! I hope you’re really really well and looking forward to the day ahead. Don’t work too hard!

I have a very quick notice for you today – for any of you waiting for brand new blog features to be published at my usual time of 11am, there will be an awkward silence at this time… oh no!  But don’t despair… being an early bird I’m bringing forward my blog features every day and will now be publishing at 10am instead. Why? So you have an excuse for biscuits earlier 🙂 and so will I!

Here’s a sneak peek for you… this real wedding is coming up in just over an hour!

Hello everyone! I have two lovely things to share with you this fine Wednesday afternoon… one for all the wedding blog fans out there, and one for wedding suppliers and photographers!

Romanza styled wedding ideas shoot sneak peek!

I can hardly wait to show you the images from a shoot I was involved in this month, but the blog schedule is packed to bursting! Just this once though, I’m sneak peeking an image or two with you… with a promise of more to come early in March. Music lovers, this blog feature will be dedicated to you! Why? I’ll tell you later…

This is a very quick post from me to say two things: first of all I’m looking for new weddings to share on English Wedding Blog – from couples, photographers, wedding film makers (Charlene, Denis and Sarah are you reading this?) – please send me submission ideas and all of your gorgeous weddings to share with everyone! Oh – and the more stationery details you can share, the better!

Also… today I’m sharing a bit of my story from the last year on the blog, it’s coming up at 11. The last twelve months have been painful for me, but November is a fresh start so I’m sharing some inspiring photos of my new home and also sharing a little about my life this year. Be gentle with me if you comment… I didn’t sleep much last night – nerves.

Another Friday afternoon, another mini-escape from the pressures of the day job for anyone who’s twiddling a pen, gazing into space or watching the clock in the corner. (Do offices still have clocks in the corner? It’s been so long… does everyone just use the clock in the corner of their screen now?) Anyways…

Welcome to the land of weddings, blogs and pretty things.

Real weddings

Be different


Wow. Where did summer go?! Surely we’re still in it… no? It’s really gone then? Oh dear.

I hope you all had a fabulous summer, wherever you went, whatever you’ve been up to, those of you busy planning for September weddings and those of you like my star bride Sally who’ve just got married. It does feel like we’ve had some lovely sunshine, good times and memories to cherish.

Vicky and Neil's wedding on the Showcase: by Tux and Tales Photography

I just got back from a fortnight’s holiday in Cornwall. So if you’ve emailed me don’t worry – I’m getting there! I’m just catching up with all your comments on the weddings I’ve blogged and all the guest blog posts on here and on the English Wedding Showcase. I love this place – I love that there’s a community here even when I’m not. I love you for making English Wedding the wonderful blog it is.
