Good morning lovely! Today we have the loveliest countryside wedding for you, with beautiful bride Victoria and her gorgeous groom Will. Theirs was such a warm, welcoming and relaxed country wedding – from the old English pub before the ceremony through to the (awesome!) dancing – and yes, we have the photos! – this is wonderful.

Victoria told me “It’s amazing how many hidden talents you’ll find amongst family and friends and everyone was so willing and keen to help which was brilliant & we really appreciated everyone’s input.” Her sister made the cake; a friend provided all of their wedding stationery and the table plan was brilliantly handcrafted by the bride’s cousin.

Neil explained about a little surprise Victoria’s father had in store… “In all my time as a Sussex wedding photographer I’ve never seen one before, but apparently it’s a Sussex tradition that the bride is pulled in a cart to the church by her father & then once she is married she is pulled away from the church by her new husband. Having spend some time getting ready and with her beautiful wedding dress on I was so impressed to see Vicky laugh and get into the cart.

I think a lovely summer wedding is just what we need! (I’ve been up for hours and my blogging fingers are freeezing this morning.) So I’m sharing Sarah and Nathan’s rustic, countryside wedding which is full of lovely ideas for your own big day.

We’re talking delicious blue cornflowers and big white daisy bouquets. There are dinky little jam jars with ribbon and flowers. I love the wedding signs, the rustic wedding post box, heart decorations and ice cream selection: Mmm… breakfast! (it’s OK, I live by the seaside. We’re allowed to do that here.)

Sarah and Nathan’s wedding day has two sides. The details are sweet and easy to recreate for your own wedding – with lots of impact and a really fresh, vibrant countryside wedding feel. But the moments between the bride and groom are magical as well: the little glances and big smiles are what a wedding day is all about. Gorgeous. Enjoy!

wedding photography by Martyn Norsworthy (20)The best English weddings are full of charm which comes right from your heart: Dan and Holly’s day is a special one. Holly’s wedding report describes how she woke up at 5am on the wedding day morning bursting with excitement – “the kind you get on Christmas day when you are a child!”

So how could I resist sharing this lovely wedding full of DIY touches and great ideas with you. It’s everything you’d imagine for a countryside wedding and bundles more: there’s bunting by the mile, and as an extra treat we have a vintage tractor and of course the adorable Peanuts the pony!

The weather looked ok so I got up and finished putting some finishing touches to the garden and marquee-within half an hour it was raining so had go and collect everything in again!
