There’s a tear in my eye already – it can be quite emotional, being a wedding blogger! With every wedding submission that lands in my inbox I wait for the photo which ‘gets me’ – in this case it was Leanne’s expression as Callum gave his speech which brought that tear.

I know you’ll love today’s wedding blog – it’s special because Leanne and Callum had a very personal wedding. I always ask couples to describe their wedding style, and their answer was sweet and simple: “our own!

The images are by reportage wedding photographer Adam Riley. My huge thanks to Adam, and to Leanne and Callum for sharing your wedding story with us today. Congratulations to an amazing couple! Everyone – enjoy! Claire xxx

Wedding venue:

Cripps Barn, Gloucestershire

Wedding photographer:

Adam Riley, Cheshire documentary wedding photographer

A little about the wedding ceremony:

We got married at the venue in front of a huge stone hearth surrounded by plants grown by our friend James, including giant sunflowers in pots, grasses and wild flowers. The ceremony itself was short but meaningful… just the way we wanted it.

UK wedding blog photo (30)I hope you’re wrapped up all snuggly and warm this morning – not only is it freezing outside, I also have a January wedding to share with you today. Joanna and Angus got married at Kingscote Barn in Gloucestershire at the beginning of the year; a day full of romance, shared glances and elegant, individual style. Joanna’s wedding dress and jacket are gorgeous; Angus looks the part in top hat and tails. I adore the bridesmaids’ capes (want one!) – as soon as they caught my eye, I wanted this particularly wonderful wedding to show you on English Wedding blog.

Joanna’s wedding report is fabulous. Her advice is great: “Decide what you care about and plan, plan, plan. Then on the day: Relax.” There’s more – but I’ll leave Joanna to tell her wedding story in her own words.

Photography is by the lovely Samantha J Photography, based in the West Midlands.

Bride and groom in lamplit garden

Bride and groom in lamplit garden - this has to be my favourite. Wow!

Time to introduce Gloucestershire wedding photographer Jonathon Watkins to everyone today – and I hope you enjoy his photos as much as I do! Beautiful bride Sian and Leyton were married at Hatherley Manor Hotel in August.

Jonathon told me that Sian and Leyton picked a very rainy day to get married, but he caught my attention with these wonderful words: when life sends you rain, put up the umbrella and make beautiful reflections…

Beautiful bridal shoes

As Sian was getting ready, Jonathon took these pictures of the wedding shoes and tiara (below) on a glass table top. Talk about beautiful reflections...

Fantastic bridal shoes from Benjamin Adams – these are ‘Winslet’ in ivory silk.

Pretty wedding tiara

Pretty wedding tiara on a glass table top. Sian's tiara is made with intricate twisted wire and diamantes

Sian’s pretty diamante tiara is from Blossom Tiaras in Hampshire.

Sian's dad & the cat from next door are best of friends
