I was speechless when I first saw this beautiful wedding in my inbox – all I could say to Colin at first was “Wow… the brides, the details, the photography, the flowers… everything is just perfect.” and it still stops me in my tracks when I scroll through the images now. You’re in for a treat.

The homemade elements of the day along with the very chilled out nature of the day made this a great wedding to shoot, not to mention the genuine happiness of everyone involved. Lyde Court is always a stunning venue and this wedding was no exception. ~ Colin Nicholls

Sunday was the spring equinox, which means summer is on the way… and so our wedding venue of the week has to be all about the outdoors! Loudwater Farm is the perfect Hertfordshire escape for a romantic summer wedding.

The outdoor space is perfect: surrounded by trees, a lovely spot for hay bales and strings of bunting or fairy lights… it makes for a natural, welcoming and comfortable ceremony space and is one of the loveliest spots for outdoor weddings I’ve seen in the UK.

I featured Jess & Joe’s Loudwater Farm wedding on the blog a little while back, and couldn’t resist another look! All images are by Colin Nicholls Photography, based in Hereford.

Loudwater Farm is only 35 minutes from central London, and hires out its Grade II listed barn for weddings. There are also 8 guest rooms, and for music and dancing you can hire the Chess Hall for your evening reception… it’s most definitely worth a visit!

So here’s a crazy thing: a collection of some of the most AMAZING wedding photos I’ve seen all year, from a couple who told me, “Most of our guests didn’t realise we had a photographer, which is how Colin [of Colin Nicholls Photography] manages to get such beautiful, natural shots.

Today’s real wedding comes from the beautiful Hertfordshire wedding venue Loudwater Farm – another wonderful thing I’ve somehow managed to never feature on the English Wedding Blog before. And so it sort of feels as though my Christmas has come early.

Jess and Joe are both gorgeous. Their wedding is perfect – it’s one of my favourites of 2015 (which I’ll be sharing in a special feature in January). DIY was a major part of their day, and Jess told me “My mum was an absolute hero and took charge of the homemade elements. She loves crafts, and gave us so many good ideas for decoration, as well as making it all!” But the homemade side of this wedding goes above and beyond: Joe even brewed most of the beer! How awesome is that?!!
