Today’s wedding is absolutely stunning: full of vibrant flowers and filled with colour in every corner. Gorgeous bride and groom Amy & Tim love travelling, which is something they incorporated into their colourful wedding theme. The guest globe is genius; the table plan wonderful, the cake prettily perfect – and there’s so much more to this fantastic wedding, I know you’ll love it!

“Our wedding was very ‘us’ – everything we love and everyone we love all together on the perfect summer’s day. There was a summery, boho, chilled out vibe with the added burst of colour and vibrancy we love from our travels and that make summer so happy and full of life. A perfect day for us is fun, relaxed, full of music, laughter, food, cocktails and dancing under the sun and the stars – and that’s exactly what we did.”

I love Katie and Ben’s wedding! Alice in Wonderland is a fun theme, and their styling is uniquely elegant… it’s just perfect. The decor is lovely and light and pretty and feminine, the bride is beautiful, and there’s a magic to the portraits which I really love.

“We hung lanterns the day before, which took a good few hours and all the bridesmaids pitching in! We also had to lay out the other elements, like the croquet, cake table and place cards. I stamped out all the table placecards, designed the menu, and made favours with my bridesmaid, white and purple marshmallows wrapped in ribbon with a personalised sticker which I designed online. With another bridesmaid we made all the ‘over here’ ‘this way to wonderland’ signs with paint and an old crate. Our wedding cake was an M & S Oversized Colin – to match the theme (and who doesn’t love Colin?!)”

What else does your wedding photographer do? I love that every creative person I know has another string to their bow… some photographers also shoot sports, or families, specialise in SEO or designer stationery. For Jo and Nic (Jo Hansford Photography) it’s something a little more exciting… and I LOVE this shoot!

We’re Jo and Nic, who have been capturing weddings all over UK, overseas in Italy and Spain together since 2003 – over 350 weddings and counting! In 2012 we decided to add a new string to our bow and we started capturing horses. Having grown up loving riding and horses, I was fascinated to capture these stunning, majestic animals in the artform of still photographs.

By the beginning of 2016, it felt like time to combine our two big passions in a creative shoot with horses and brides. Needless to say, we also wanted to do something a bit different!

I’m almost tempted to tell the story of Lori and Tom’s wedding backwards… because I’m in love with this photo:

The only reason I’m telling the story from the beginning is that I’m just as excited to show you all of the other images of the day… today’s real wedding is full of surprises, beautiful touches and smiles from beginning to end. You’ll love it!

Lori and Tom were married in the summer, and seeing their wedding today is warming my heart – it’s a beautiful celebration for a gorgeous couple in one of the most magnificent venues our country has to offer: Studley Castle. The ceilings are spectacular; the setting is incredible and the atmosphere is spine tingling!

Lori’s dress was created for her from her own vision: she bought a strapless bridal gown and had a lace top made especially for her by a local bridal boutique – it looks fabulous and I love her approach to customising an off-the-peg wedding dress!

So I asked Lizzie and Paul if they could describe their wedding in 10 words or fewer… and their response was simply, “wow, this is hard”!… which made me smile. Their wedding is lovely, beautifully styled and full of gorgeous moments – there are too many to count.

Today’s incredibly beautiful bride and gorgeous groom were married in Derbyshire in August. They chose Callow Hall as their reception venue, and I’m thrilled to be able to feature their day on the English Wedding Blog.

Images are by lovely Simon Dewey Photography, who describes their day as “a treat. A lovely couple. A gorgeous dress. Traditional scottish attire. And some georgous light and landscape to capture it all in. Lizzie and Paul had exlusive use of the hall and grounds, a drinks reception in the secret garden, followed by a meal and dancing the night away with their guests in the marquee overlooking the Derbyshire landscape. It was a truly special occasion.”

Jonathan and Jessica’s family is the most talented ever seen on a wedding blog. The details of their day are pretty amazing – and I eagerly read Jess’s questionnaire to see where they bought their fabulous stationery (her brother made it) and stunning cakes (Jonathan’s dad). Wow.

Chloe and Kit’s wedding is just beautiful: a classic English country garden theme in a light and prettily decorated marquee at home. Chloe is the most beautiful bride, looking amazing in a lace dress by Augusta Jones. All of the special touches and styling on the day come together to create a delicately pretty and romantic wedding style with a cream, white and light grey colour scheme.

This is a classic English country garden wedding with some wonderful ideas for flowers, fairy lights, jam jars and candles which light up the enchanting garden to make it the prettiest setting for an evening reception… I’m sure you’ll love it. With thanks to Chloe and Kit for a lovely wedding report, and to Camilla Arnhold Photography for sharing her lovely images with us all today. Enjoy!
