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.

Styal Lodge real wedding blogCome and join me for this enchanting wedding at one of Cheshire’s most luxurious wedding venues. Built especially for weddings, Styal Lodge is a pretty cool place – and Charlotte and James’s wedding shows off all its best bits!

First seen on the English Wedding Showcase, I love the fun elements of this wedding day: there’s a great picture of the bridal party with funky umbrellas, and towards the end a lovely portrait picture is completely thrown by the arrival of a naughty spider… McAvoy Photography really do capture the fun and playfulness in a wedding day and I’m sure you’ll love this as much as I do.

Charlotte and James are the most adorable couple – they look so deeply in love with each other, and I’m really proud to be sharing their wedding with you today.

In the spirit of the festive season and in the best tradition of television and radio over Christmas and New Year, I’m going to be writing a little “best of” series of blog posts over the next few days for you. These will be my favourites from the year, and will show you what the English Wedding blog is all about.

owl at a wedding

Everyone should have a wedding owl.

Yes. Owls at weddings. Everyone should have owls at weddings. Perhaps in the spirit of my wedding priority list published a few days ago I could say they were ‘optional extras’ or ‘luxury items’, even ‘fanciful’… but after seeing this, I’d invite an owl before my uncle Barry.*

This gorgeous wedding blog feature has two purposes:
1. To show off more out of this world wedding photography by the rather masterful Chris Hanley Photography and make my blog look amazing!
2. To let us all bask in pure luxury, enjoy and admire images of a wedding that is stunningly beautiful, and to share in that lifestyle for a moment or two.

With no further ado…
