Wildflowers for a country garden wedding with Somerset wedding photographer Howell Jones Photography (11)

Hey lovely! I’ve been blown away by the stunning wildflowers and relaxed, boho styling of Chris and Bex’s Devon wedding today. Once again we’re at the fabulous Colehayes Park in Bovey Tracey with their recommended photographer Warren from Howell Jones Photography. You’re going to adore all the floral prettiness – and this is an extra special day because the sunshine played out all day so even the meal was served in the gardens!

Bex and Chris chose a hot and sunny May day to get married – remember the crazy hot summer we had last year? This is pretty much where it all began! Beautiful bride Bex wears a divine boho wedding dress, light and floaty for the summer sunshine. The softly sparkling beaded belt and delicate lace cap sleeves are simply wonderful. Chris looks so handsome in a tailored grey suit with purple tie and pocket square. Sophisticated sunnies complete the outdoor groom look!

My top tip for your wedding is to let your daughter wear her rainbow roller-skates, and skate down the aisle!! Lovelies, this is one of my favourite weddings of the year – gorgeous Katherine and Nick made pretty much everything themselves, and planned a relaxed, informal celebration at Whitemoor Farm with a really individual and unique style. It’s just FABULOUS – you’re going to love all of this! Images are by lovely Devon wedding photographer and English Wedding team member Anthony from Special Day Wedding Photos.

“I absolutely loved Katherine and Nick’s wedding at Whitemoor Farm in North Devon. The couple had moved down from the Midlands to the countryside of North Devon for a ‘good life’, and have a small-holding. They were really chilled out and relaxed which reflected in the way they decorated the venue. The styling was fabulous with an emphasis on the retro. Katherine runs art classes which was telling in the styling of the wedding. The couple were very keen to keep the day as relaxed as possible so didn’t want to spend too much time with family group-shots and couple shots, which is great.  I can really loose myself in the photography at these types of weddings. I love to capture the day as it naturally happens as it gives the images authenticity.

Victoria and Lawrence used the loveliest autumnal touches to decorate their beautiful medieval venue Dartington Hall. It’s the largest medieval house in the West of England and possibly one of the most romantic wedding venues in the South West. They chose to marry in November because they love the cosy touches they could incorporate into their day: log fires and autumnal colours with rustic touches: lots of dried leaves, pine cones, ivy, burnt oranges, candles… and it looks wonderful!

“Martin photographed our wedding at Dartington Hall in November. He was fantastic! Relaxed yet professional on the day, listened to all of our weird and wonderful ideas beforehand and dealt with the November weather expertly! We were really happy with the end result and ended up ordering an album double the size of the one we had previously planned as we loved the pictures so much! Thanks again Martin.”

Filly’s stunning vintage dress is from Days of Grace in Budleigh Salterton – their heirloom gowns are wonderful, made from vintage lace and perfect for a country wedding with a twist of boho. I love this! Filly and her girls had their hair done by Tara of Head Hair and Beauty – and they all look amazing.

Genna and Sean’s wedding is so, so beautiful! The venue was covered in flowers, fairy lights and hanging lanterns (all handmade with love), with special touches created on site, made lovingly by friends and family. The venue itself has scenery which surrounded the Ceremony and Reception, making it extra special!

“Words can’t describe how happy we are that we chose Evolve Photography to capture the special moments on our Wedding day! Mark was absolutely fantastic, and clearly extremely passionate, as well as very talented at what he does. This made the day, and photos extremely enjoyable, and meant that we were able to just relax and enjoy our day. Mark was also able to capture the essence of both of us, and our bridal party and groomsmen – allowing the fun that we were having to show through in our photos, which was fantastic! Our photos turned out better than we could imagined, and we would highly recommend Evolve Photography to anyone who can snap him up!

Emerald is my birthstone, and green has always been my favourite colour – as a nature lover I adore weddings with tons of green foliage and styling touches. Emma and Steve chose shades of green to style their day at the fabulous Deer Park Country House Hotel in Honiton, Devon. Their wedding is simple, elegant and understated – and the bride and groom are gorgeous.

Emma and Steve chose September for their wedding and were blessed with glorious blue skies and sunshine – just perfect for the Deer Park Country House Hotel, which boasts over 80 acres of wild flower meadows, woodland walks and manicured lawns for you and your guests to explore.

The colour scheme for the day was simple: green and white / ivory with thoughtful little touches dotted around the venue. Bouquets are traditional, with white roses the statement flower of the day. I really hope you love this wedding – it’s everything a wedding should be, and that all comes down to the beautiful bride and groom, and those wonderful smiles which last all day long. Claire

Talk about a dream wedding location… an escape from the hustle and bustle of London into beautiful Devon and to the unique charm of Cadhay House. Fiona and Tim got everything just so right, and their tipi wedding is magical.

Kristian told me, “I went to college with the Groom’s brother many years ago, and we both encouraged each other through our early phases into photography, so it meant a lot to reacquaint myself with his family and capture Tim’s wedding.  The whole day was incredibly relaxed, with a beautiful outdoor ceremony near the lake. And any couple that has their First Dance to the Baywatch theme tune is going to have a special place in my heart!

Do you remember the moment one of you said yes? When suddenly you’d made that first step towards a lifetime together, and your heart was fit to burst with being so much in love? Stepping from being just a couple head over heels in love and enjoying every small adventure together, into planning a wedding can be… daunting. It’s so, so important to keep making amazing memories as you plan your wedding – and I think an engagement shoot is the perfect way to capture some of the romance and excitement of your pre-wedding months.

There are many, many reasons to have a photoshoot before your wedding. It’s a great way to get to know your photographer, relax in front of the camera, perhaps explore your venue  or just have a fun day out.

More than a garter, more than a sapphire, more than anything blue any bride has ever carried: I hope my own something blue will be the sea. Because I think it’s the most beautiful thing…

I can almost hear music as I scroll through Claudia and John’s wedding photographs – a soft, tinkling piano piece to accompany the elegant wedding ceremony (did you see their Sidbury wedding blog yesterday?) and then something a touch livelier for the wedding reception I’m about to show you. It sings of sophistication and English charm with a really loved up atmosphere.

Claudia and John live in Australia, and chose to get married in the UK because Claudia is British and her family live over here. They had a wedding weekend, with a classic Devon cream tea on the day before the wedding itself. This was followed by a traditional English barbeque in the evening so the English and Aussie guests could meet and mingle.

English wedding blog real wedding photography from the UK (7)The marriage ceremony I shared yesterday was in the village church at Sidbury in Devon. I’ll pick up where we left off in yesterday’s wedding blog as Claudia and John make their way to Combe House Hotel for the reception.

Once again I’ll hand over to Claudia to share her wedding story with you.

Claudia and John’s wedding day is a beautiful celebration of love and has all the best bits of that ‘quintessentially’ English style thrown in. I adore the style of Australian weddings – as a big fan of Ruffled blog and Style Me Pretty I see lots of gorgeous Aussie wedding receptions and they’re always fabulous. So when wedding photographer Richard Rayner sent me this beautiful Devon wedding of a couple who live in Australia I was over the moon!

Claudia wrote a beautiful report of her day, so I’ll leave the words to the beautiful bride.

Oh – and this wedding is in two parts with a bonus wedding inspiration board at the end… so keep coming back to English Wedding blog for more this week!
