Nathan and Vikki are adorable, gorgeous and oh so stylish – and their wedding reflects their personalities so perfectly, I can’t wait to show you this! They married at Braxted Park and chose the fabulous Liam Smith Photography to capture their day. Vikki’s bridal look is amazing – she’s so beautiful. Nathan shed a tear as she walked down the aisle, and can you blame him? They make a perfect pair, and the images of their day are some of the very best. Absolutely wonderful…

Liam loved shooting this wedding: “Nathan and Vikki were blessed with the most outrageous sunshine to compliment their beautifully designed and crafted wedding… I love the shots we managed to get in the grounds, the colours are just epic. Such a fun day, I love Braxted Park, genuinely one of my favourite places, if you’re getting married there too and in need of a wedding photographer – give me a shout!”

It’s been a while since I introduced a new sponsor in this way: things go on behind the scenes with the English Wedding Showcase and we get all caught up in ideas for the blog, real weddings and off-record wedding industry chat!

The story of a beautiful wedding by English Wedding blog sponsor Martin Beddall Photography

This is why I introduce my latest sponsor, documentary wedding photographer Martin Beddall, as a new friend. Martin has a wealth of wedding photography expertise and industry insights. He’s inspired a few blog posts about documentary (or reportage) wedding photography – the idea of telling a story with wedding photography appeals to me so much, in these times where we all want to see details, there’s something refreshingly honest, emotive and enchanting in seeing a wedding day simply unfolding before your eyes.

So you’ll have seen Martin Beddall’s name mentioned on various blog posts recently as well as his three – yes, count ’em! – real weddings featured on the blog in the last month or two.
