The launch of Love Bridal today is something for the wedding industry in the North West of England to really celebrate. While I’m now Norther and Wester than all of the photographers involved in the shoot, I’m still delighted that English Wedding Blog is playing a part in this launch: the way these guys work together is inspiring.

This is a fantastic showcase of the wedding dress designers at Love Bridal boutique:

  • Terry Fox
  • Mia Mia by Alan Hannah
  • Intuzuri
  • Heritage Collection by Balbier Wyatt

It’s also a great introduction to some of the best wedding photographers in the North and West of England. These guys work together and share ideas because they have such different styles and perspectives – who’d have thought wedding photography came in so many shapes and sizes!

Morning everyone! Allow me to brighten up a gloomy Friday with a fabulously indulgent designer wedding – part two of Emma and Burnsy’s incredibly beautiful wedding day from The Manor House, Combe.

There were far too many gorgeous photos to share with you in one blog post, so I’ve split this wedding blog feature into two parts: yesterday I shared the bridal preparations and wedding ceremony with you – today we get to admire the gorgeous features of The Manor House inside and out!

I’m sure you’ll agree Emma and Burnsy (official name Richard; place card name Burnsy 🙂 both look fabulous: Emma’s Vera Wang wedding dress is amazing on her; Burnsy is the tall, dark and handsome type – and wears his top hat with style!

Wedding photography is by – once more with a huge grin from me! – the  — award win­ning wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phers CG Wed­dings, aka The Craw­leys, from Cheshire.





The beautiful Bee Crawley – part of our award winning wedding photography team! is the blonde bridesmaid blowing a kiss in this picture. Hello Bee! xxx

So much to show you today, such a gorgeous wedding – and you know, for me the very best bit about Emma and Burnsy’s wedding is the love and laughter.

UK wedding photography blog CG weddings (51)This really is a fabulous designer wedding day – with so many details and moments to share with you I’m splitting the blog feature over two days. Today – the bridal preparations and wedding ceremony are all yours. Emma and her girls had the best morning ever – and there are some lovely photos which are guaranteed to bring a big smile to your face! I think today I’ll make the most of showing you that gorgeous Vera Wang designer wedding dress as well.

Chester carnival wedding day

The Chester Grosvenor pulled out all the stops to make sure the bride and groom, their horse and carriage and the open-top bus could navigate the (otherwise closed!) roads to the hotel amidst the carnival crowds – and it makes for a spectacular wedding blog post – or two!…

I’ll share this in two parts – with words by Angela and photos by Chester wedding photographers CG Weddings. Enjoy!

Yesterday I shared Andrea and Richard’s classy wedding in Cheshire. They were married in July and despite the rain it was a beautiful celebration: not least for Andrea’s stunning halterneck wedding dress and the inclusion of their adorable little son and the cutest EVER bridesmaid and flower girl.

wedding blog by cg weddings photography UK (1)I saved lots and lots of gorgeous images of the wedding reception for you. A deliciously sophisticated garden wedding reception, this blog post is full of ideas for styling your day – as well as the usual collection of beautiful wedding photos to make you smile and dream of your own wedding day!

By the kids’ area. Enjoy the grown up photos of the party below – as ever, beautifully captured by Cheshire wedding photographers cg weddings. And then let’s go and have a peek at the kids’ tent, shall we? With bunting, flowers, games, treats and a selection of exotic creatures and creepy crawlies, it’s brilliant inspiration for entertaining children at your wedding. You’ll love it…

I wish two things. I wish it was still summer, and I wish I could step into this wedding blog feature and be a part of Andrea and Richard’s wedding day. This is a beautiful celebration, with a very distinctive and classy look to it. Andrea’s a stunning bride and her dress is just perfect – and quite different to any I’ve seen recently.

Despite the rain, the photographs from the wedding are so full of happiness and brimming with emotion. Liam Crawley of cgweddings was their wedding photographer, and together with his wife and partner Bee has created this beautiful collection of images which they’re sharing with English Wedding blog readers today.
