As we head into the weekend I have one more breathtakingly beautiful wedding to share with you. Gorgeous couple Maureen & Liam tied the knot at Thornbury Castle in an elegant, sophisticated and joyful celebration with their closest family and friends.

This is such a fabulous wedding, with some truly special personal touches and brilliant recommendations for exceptional wedding suppliers. All images are by super talented Thornbury Castle Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek, one of our favourite contributors and members of the blog. Martin gets a glowing review from the happy couple, which was heartwarming to read. Huge thanks (and happy anniversary, if a day or so late!) to lovely Maureen and Liam. Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!

How did you choose your photographer?

We reviewed a number of photographers, but it came down to the connection we felt with Martin. Speaking with him felt like speaking with a friend, and it was clear that he shared our understanding that the candid moments between friends and loved ones were the most meaningful usually. He also had a gorgeous catalogue of work that had us feeling intrigued and eager to work with him.

Deliciously contemporary styling, the most beautiful sparkle and crazily amazing florals everywhere – this is an absolute dream of a style feature from a team of super talented Wiltshire wedding suppliers. Images are by lovely Alicia at Red Maple Photography, styling is by the Little Wedding Helper and the flowers are by Wild & Co. Love this SO much!

Asian fusion wedding style from Euridge Manor in Wiltshire (5)

Love meets the romantic Lost Orangery at Euridge Manor in Wiltshire. The Lost Orangery, a highly sought after wedding venue for exclusive weddings, is the perfect backdrop for any Asian fusion wedding.

Seating guests up to 200 in the Ballroom. And room for any type of marquee you wish to take your guests beyond the 200 mark. On a May morning, we created a romantic, country garden fusion wedding shoot. The idea behind the shoot was to showcase how you can take two cultures and bring them together to create a very romantic English style wedding.

Today’s wedding is blissfully beautiful, classic in style and with a sophisticated wintry look. The styling is elegant and light, using silver and grey – the bridesmaids’ dark dresses are fabulous. And I’ve totally fallen for Izzy and Tom – they look so wonderfully happy together, not to mention absolutely gorgeous! Izzy’s dress is a showstopper: her smile is infectious. You’ll love these two! The stunning venue is De Vere Tortworth Court, which is captured so beautifully in Goucestershire wedding photographer Martin Dabek‘s inimitable signature style.

Soooo….. who’s planning to arrive at their wedding venue in a helicopter then? Nope? Hadn’t crossed your mind? It wouldn’t have been on my list either until today’s rather exciting Cotswolds wedding landed on my screen. But oh – what an adventure, and what memories to have from your wedding day!! Laura and Matt really did create an exceptional wedding, with vibrant florals and a stunning colour palette. The helicopter ride makes their day really unique!! Lucky for us, our friend Martin Dabek Photography went along for the ride and captured every thrilling moment up in the skies with the bride and her dad on their way to the church!

Our Upcote Barn wedding photographer Martin came highly recommend by our friend group… 5 friends had Martin as their photographer at their weddings so he was tried and tested!!

We couldn’t have been happier with Martin. Martin is very personable, professional and relaxed making the experience as easy as possible on the day.

Can you imagine an outside wedding at a working watermill? It sounds blissful… and for Nigel & Jade it really was a dream day. I love the glamour and elegance of their day at Priston Mill, a beautiful venue just outside Bath and Bristol with two gorgeous locations for your wedding and reception – the the barn and watermill are both glorious – and I’m thrilled to say our friend and sponsor Bristol wedding photographer Martin Dabek comes very highly recommended for both, as a regular Priston Mill wedding photographer! Our bride and groom are gorgeous; their day is super elegant with sparkle, their first dance is awesome and you’ll LOVE the last photo in the set…

We had seen his work after our friends had him for their wedding. We did look around and spoke to other photographers, but loved Martin’s work the most so decided he was the one we wanted to capture our big day.
