Something to brighten your day, my lovely wedding blog friends… beautiful summer wildflower bouquets and the most adorable troupe of flower girls you’re ever likely to see. Sam and Anna’s wonderful Yorkshire wedding will go down as one of my favourites of all time. Their day is full of fun and laughter, love and happiness, and every image tells a story of its very own. Some have made me grin, others give a warm glow…

Real wedding at Hazlewood Castle in Yorkshire with Ian Wallace Photography (46)

Anna is an incredibly beautiful bride. Her smile is infectious: with Sam at her side they make a gorgeous couple. I love the portraits Ian captured of them both around Hazlewood Castle: it’s a venue with knockout looks and some amazing photographic locations. It’s also steeped in a history of kings, knights and historical tales – and I love the romance of adding your own story to the centuries gone before at such a fascinating venue.

My best friend from school gets married next weekend and I really can’t wait for the day. It’s going to be all kinds of amazing! 🙂 I love that they’ve chosen to have a spring wedding: there is something enchanting about this time of year, don’t you think?

Visually, spring is just so beautiful. Blossom is all around; seasonal bouquets include lovely tulips, anemones and muscari (some of my absolute favourites) and your venue’s gardens will be starting to burst into life. You may be lucky enough to find a carpet of bluebells or even primroses for your wedding pics, and in late spring there’ll be wisteria-covered walls and beautiful magnolias creating the most colourful, natural backdrops for your portraits.

Weddings in spring always have a feeling of freshness and new beginnings.  The backdrop will usually be spring flowers scattered on the ground, a slight chill in the air, and soft afternoon sunshine.  Suppliers and venues are gearing up for a busy season, and the first few weddings of the year are wrapped up in the excitement and anticipation of so many new opportunities to make a wedding day extra-special.” ~ Carol Elizabeth Photography

The cute and quirky dress styles of the 1950s make it one of our favourite vintage wedding eras. Tea length dresses with swirly skirts and cute ribbon belts make 1950s inspired brides ever so beautiful. Today’s shoot is all about the dress: gorgeous model Lauren looks stunning in a dress from Lace & Co. in Yorkshire.

The sunshine, along with masses of flowers and fabulous settings just make this a bridal shoot to get really inspired by. Whatever your style and shape, a playful little 1950s wedding dress will make you feel like a million dollars – and you’re guaranteed to set the dance floor on fire!

Hazlewood Castle is in the Domesday book, no less, and dates from as far back as 1086! It was the perfect wedding venue for Natsumi and Pete, who got married earlier in the spring. There are some really stunning images here, courtesy of Tierney Photography. I love the imagination of these first two images especially: the shadows are fab!

Pete and Natsumi’s wedding day at Hazlewood Castle in Yorkshire has so many stunning elements to it I know you’ll love this post. The baby girl is grinning as though she’s already got the wedding bug! I love the check floor with the little bridesmaid dancing across, and the lighting in the images of the castle itself…. I hope you love this wedding as much as I do. Enjoy!

Most of all Natsumi – her smile, the way she wears her gorgeous wedding dress and her confidence posing for the photos – she’s a real star and a beautiful bride.

Pete gets ready – with the instruction manual to get his tie just right!
