Happy New Year everyone! Warmest welcomes from me if you’re new to English Wedding – oh, and huge congratulations if you’ve got a brand new sparkly thing on your finger!!! Exciting times are ahead and I’m here to inspire you through your wedding planning journey. Come & grab a cuppa and I’ll introduce you to everyone at English Wedding.This blog is for everyone – brides and grooms alike. We focus on real weddings all around the UK and share the very best ideas, advice and photography from the wedding world. I like to think English-Wedding.com is a little different – as well as the gorgeous details, the weddings we feature have a sense of humour and authenticity to them. It’s not all about spending a fortune to create an insta-worthy day: every wedding is about your personalities, your family and friends and having the most amazing party with the happy smiling faces of the folks you love.

As the weather gets warmer, our intrepid wedding fan gets excited at the thought of seaside weddings – and this caught his eye: a boutique wedding from Devon wedding photographer Rosie Parsons‘s blog.

The blue skies, sea and campervan are fab – bride Sam looks incredible with her bump and there are some fantastic detail shots on Rosie’s wedding photography blog.

Part two of Laura and Julian’s wedding is all about the love – their eyes only for each other, the intimate moments captured beautifully on film and the lovely atmosphere of quiet celebration all make for a blog I’m so proud to be able to share with you today. (See yesterday’s amazing photographs of the church and ceremony.)

I love Laura’s dress and her bridal style, the Alice band and everything about her. I live for weddings which are a little alternative, totally unique and beautifully romantic. This, for me, is a perfect wedding.

Lime Leaf Weddings is a blog I follow avidly, as their photography is always really special. Laura and Julian’s wedding featured on the blog in October and I immediately fell for Laura’s beautiful and unusual wedding dress.

The photography by Henley and Laura at Lime Leaf Weddings is pretty spectacular, perfectly in keeping with the wedding itself and particularly capturing the atmosphere of the church where Laura and Julian were married.

This wedding will be in two parts, today I just want to show you the marriage ceremony and that incredible church – tomorrow the cream tea reception full of fun and laughter. You’ll love both, I promise!

This photo of the church takes in so much of the building – I love it. The dark, almost foreboding vaulted ceiling, the shadowy darkness of the top of the cross and then the brightness from the window and the lights… I think for a Catholic wedding it’s really important to include the religious aspects in the photography, and this is a fantastic way to do so. Beautifully done, Lime Leaf Weddings!

Love is...

The wave of beautiful vintage themed weddings just doesn’t seem to stop – and I’m really loving all the gorgeous vintage wedding photography around at the moment.

Allison and Jeremy had a gorgeous wedding day in Wales, complete with pink rose flower arrangements Allison had made herself, a beautiful and unusual wedding venue, and a wedding dress and lace shrug that are out of this world!

Allison and Jeremy chose Devon based photographers Lime Leaf Weddings to capture their day. I’m a big fan of Laura and Henley’s photography work, and this series of amazing wedding images is one of their best: the wonderful lightness in every image makes me wonder if they carried along their own little sunshine in a bag with the camera equipment. Enjoy…
