Happy Thursday lovelies! Nearly the weekend… we’re excited to be heading to Manchester for a long overdue family visit tomorrow. What are your plans? If you’re thinking about a little wedmin then you’re in luck because we have some gorgeous ideas from a thrifty, creative, DIY spring wedding to delight your eyes today! I adore the colour theme and styling of Christian and Tan’s big day at Dodford Manor Country House Barn and I hope you will too!

Nearly everything for the wedding was handmade! Tan loved designing and making the elements for the special day. “We had arranged for a Big Routemaster Bus to collect our guests and take them to the venue, so Tan made a hand painted sign as a bus stop in our village, with a pic of the Bride and Groom, and tied balloons to it. The order of Service was handmade, including hand painted pictures of all the Wedding Party – including one of the Groom getting ready with his Saints Rugby top on under his suit.

I think ultimately weddings are about stories. You’ll reminisce on your day with friends and family for years to come – and there’s always a great story to tell. With that in mind I reached out to some photographer friends to see if they had any stories to share with you for a new series of mini blog posts, and their replies have been fantastic, at times mildly alarming and just generally fascinating! Take today’s story – being ‘fashionably late’ to your wedding is never a good plan!

“There was that time when…”

by Northamptonshire Wedding Photographer Steve Brill

I had been booked to photograph a lovely intimate family wedding at a registry office in a local historic market town. The ceremony had been scheduled for 4.00pm and the bride had been told at the time of booking that her wedding was to be the last one of the day, so there was no pressure on her.
