I hope you’re having the loveliest week! I’d like to introduce you to someone who is a definite favourite amongst wedding bloggers – and who has joined English Wedding this month as one of our handpicked and wholeheartedly recommended wedding photographers! Richard Skins is a Dorset wedding photographer whose recent weddings have taken him to some enchanting and exciting destination weddings in Europe, as well as around the UK! Just stepping across to Richard’s website is like being in France in the summer – it’s a magical and romantic world of beautiful in his little corner of the internet!

From Bournemouth to the South of France via weddings in Slovenia, Italy and the Swiss Alps, Richard’s weddings are always beautifully, thoughtfully, brilliantly captured. Richard’s focus on happiness at weddings shines from each image in a seamless combination of modern and documentary wedding photography. If you’re planning a destination wedding, it’s good to know Richard Skins most definitely knows his way around a few chateaux – and has the spirit of adventure to discover many more!

How is your week going? Do you have sunshine? It’s been beautiful here… I think spring is my favourite season of all when it’s like this! I could almost be on my laptop in the garden right now!

We’ve had a week of beautiful weddings and features, and today’s is a real favourite: the relaxed and elegant styling is fabulous; Lucy & James are gorgeous and their day looks so much fun. It’s all beautifully captured by our friend and outstanding Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography.

Lucy’s Alice Temperley gown takes my breath away. The delicate embroidery and soft, swishing fabric of that fabulous skirt make this a true dream dress!

Having a boho / rustic wedding can still involve lots of styling and creative projects, and I fell head over heels for all the foliage in Lucy & James’s marquee – they made hazel frames running along all the tables and hung hops and other foliage from it – it looks fabulous. Even the bar is covered in hops! I love it!
