There’s nothing I love more than a success story – when lovely brides and grooms show a wedding supplier so much love their business can grow into something wonderful. So when I saw on Instagram that my lovely friend and sponsor Ayshea Goldberg had gone and got herself a fab new office space for client meetings and viewings I just had to show you here! Ayshea – well done lovely, you deserve this beautiful space so much!

“When I started my photography business a few years ago I had some modest dreams, but I didn’t know where it would take me.  Over the last couple of years my business has become everything that I want it to be – an extension of me and my values.  Until now I’ve based myself working from a dedicated room in my home, which I loved as I was welcoming people into my home, they saw how I lived, ate my homemade flapjacks, got to meet my husband as they walked through my lounge and into my viewing room – it felt genuine and part of me.

Today’s real wedding on the blog is just… timeless. Beautiful. Elegant. Laura and Lewis are perfect together – they look amazing and the style of their wedding is divine. That dress…

Laura and Lewis are one of the friendliest, funniest, craziest couples I’ve worked with. Everyone was just genuinely thrilled to celebrate the day with the couple.

Laura was excited about everything and Lewis was possibly the most emotional groom I’ve met. He couldn’t wait to see Laura walk down the aisle – and was so nervous while she kept him waiting. Laura just constantly chats about anything and everything – I feel like I really know them. Their families were both so welcoming too and everyone was enthusiastic to come outside for portraits even when it started to rain.

Lewis’s speech was the sweetest and most emotional I’ve ever heard a groom say, he even made me well up! Good job I could hide behind my camera!

I have been so excited to show you Lydia and Rob’s wedding – there are some amazing ideas and beautiful images, and I love the venue with the lights strung across the ceiling, their portraits are fab, and there’s a gorgeous night time image of the two of them. The bouquet is pretty as well, with lovely shades of white and yellow for a fresh spring bouquet – fabulous.

So many things made this wedding special and memorable. The main thing was that even though the weather was pretty awful, nothing was going to stop them enjoying their day and having their photographs in the gardens and grounds. They’re such a funny couple and took everything in their stride. The planning had been easy and they were very chilled out about everything leading up to and on the day.

An English wedding with an Italian twist? Oh yes… Suzanne and Glenn’s wedding party, which is all kinds of gorgeous, followed an intimate Italian wedding in Florence. So all their friends in the UK could share in the celebrations, they had a reception back home – and it rocks.

“As we had a marquee all the decoration was down to us, we tried to keep it quite simple with cream carpet a white linings a lot of the marquee was open so to bring the outside area in. We hired a bar made from wooden pallets and a few other vintage features from Idyllic days.

I made invites, menus, and a wooden pallet filled with pictures of our families on their wedding days. I love anything like that and really enjoyed finding all the perfect elements for each project.”

Who else loves sunflowers? For summer colour, vibrance and just general amazingness, I think they’re pretty hard to beat! And if you can grow your own for your summer wedding, they’ll give you such wonderful memories of your day in your photos and whenever you see them again! Marie and Richard – I adore how you styled your day and I LOVE your photos!

There are so many things about this wedding that I love, but the thing that I remember the most is the pure happiness of the day.  The absolute joy of everyone to get together and celebrate on the day was genuine.  Marie is one of the happiest and most expressive brides I’ve had the pleasure of capturing.  She was excited and thrilled about everything – her friends giving a piano recital of Disney songs in the church, the bright flowers and bridesmaid dresses, and the wedding cake that had the same coloured tiers as the bridesmaid dresses.

Barn weddings are sooo lovely: the perfect blank canvas, history and character allowing you to blend in with a rustic theme or contrast beautifully with elegance and country charm. Today’s wedding is perfectly pretty and will inspire countryside brides and grooms everywhere! Enjoy 🙂

Real wedding at Maidens Barn Essex by Ayshea Goldberg Photography (11)

Maidens Barn is located in Essex countryside, it’s a rural location and is a hidden gem.  It’s surrounded by tranquil space and farmland.  Because it’s so secluded and peaceful, it gives the feel that there’s nothing else going on in the world on your wedding day – which is exactly how you should feel. It’s beautiful and has a wonderful courtyard which can be used as one of the many scenic backdrops too.

This wedding was just so pretty – I love vintage styles and Jess and James had brought in a styling company that specialise in vintage props.  Jess and James had carefully selected small accents and larger props that reflected what they wanted their wedding day to look like, and in the rustic barn setting it worked so well.

Amanda Karen Photography was born out of a love for photography and weddings, especially after our own wedding in 2013!  It’s truly the best job in the world, to capture people in love declaring that to their nearest and dearest, and to do that alongside my own husband is even better.  The beauty of being a husband and wife team is that we can relate to just how our couples are feeling, the anticipation, the excitement, the fact that the day goes by in one romantic whirlwind, it’s an amazing and emotional day for all involved.  I love it!

Katie and Sam’s November wedding is traditional, elegant and still has the loveliest home made touches: the gorgeous couple married at Sussex favourite Pangdean Barn. From Katie’s veil to the place settings, every detail came together perfectly – and I’m thrilled for lovely Katie and Sam (who I got to know in the run up to their big day) that it turned out so beautifully.

I had the pleasure of working with Jane at Flowers & Daughters. She was fantastic as I only had a very vague idea of what I wanted, and being November, there were only a limited selection of flowers available. But she pulled out all of the stops and our flowers were brilliant. The colours worked so well with the venue as well as the bridesmaid’s dresses, and we had so many comments throughout the day on them. They were perfect.”
