My geography is poor – like, I could reel off a list of florists and bridal boutiques and tell you where they’re based, but ask me to point at them on a map and I’d be grabbing for Google! Is it crazy that I only know UK towns and counties by their wedding suppliers?! One of those I know best of all from wedding blogging is the lovely TDR Bridal in Halesowen, a town I’ve whizzed by on the M5 many times… literally minutes away from TDR Bridal and without ever popping in for a coffee!
You, lovely reader, are getting married at the most amazing time – the opportunities for hiring a unique venue are endless. So many places – old theatres, cinemas, museums; buildings filled with history and character – are opening their doors to weddings. As a wedding blogger I love discovering new places to get hitched, and when I can share the experience with all of you lovely lot it makes me so happy! Today we join beautiful bride Najma and her gorgeous groom Jeff as they tie the knot at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. It’s probably the only wedding venue with a touring dinosaur… or is it?! Dippy’s making his way around the UK until 2020, dinosaur fans!
How was your weekend? I’ve been working away quietly on calligraphy projects for the summer as well as a very early walk in the mountains on Saturday morning… blissful! I love it when Mondays don’t feel like work though… and today with beautiful Sahiti and Nitin’s wedding on my screens I feel happy, joyful… I really do love my job!
Happy June! Where did May go… is it just me or is 2018 flying by?! I’m delighted to be sharing a wedding from one of our exclusive little team of sponsors on the blog today – lovely Birmingham wedding photographer Clive Blair. Clive’s a documentary-styled wedding photographer, based in Birmingham and working throughout the UK and abroad for couples who want a relaxed and informal style of wedding photography. We think he’s fab!
James and Lizzie married at Bordesley Park Farm in Beoley Vale, Worcestershire – an exclusive wedding venue surrounded by 500 acres of beautiful countryside giving the perfect backdrop for a wonderful wedding. The weather was gloriously sunny from beginning to end – and Clive’s golden hour shots of the happy couple are just breathtaking!
Happy Sunday lovelies! Does anyone have sunshine this morning? It’s peeking through the clouds as I write… there’s nothing lovelier than driving back to the Lakes and seeing the sun on the mountains 🙂 Oh! Apart from Kayleigh and Dan’s wedding on the blog today of course! They were so lucky with the weather for their outdoor wedding in beautiful woodlands at Bodenham Arboretum. Their humanist ceremony was touching, beautiful and intimate: they invited friends and family who they see often and will see after the wedding, rather than feeling pressured to invite people they don’t know well – and for me this always makes a wedding much more relaxed and happy.
