Happy Monday my lovelies! Is the sun shining for you today? I do hope so – we had the most beautiful sunrise up here in the Lake District and I’m feeling happy and excited for a lovely week ahead! In real life, it’s full of me writing wedding invitation samples on handmade papers with my fave calligraphy pens – and then I’ve a modern calligraphy workshop by the coast on Friday. In wedding blog life (which is a joyful existence lived inside my computer!) this week we have lots of fabulous inspiration for you including a virtual explore of Sussex’s best wedding venues and a rundown of some of the Midlands’ finest wedding bands – if you’re in those areas, check back here through the week to find out more!

They say weddings are all about the love, the romance, the emotions and moments… and then someone shows me THESE BALLOONS and suddenly weddings are all about that instead!! Am I wrong? But aren’t they fun and pretty and brilliant? I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding because – [balloons, obviously?] – it’s a real family affair, with the little ones even helping to make the wedding favours! The venue is London Shenley Club (Hertfordshire). The pics by our lovely friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography are a breath of fresh air, the details are wonderfully creative and Becky and Liam are just the most gorgeous-looking pair too!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, wherever you are. I have lovely news for all of our Hertfordshire brides and grooms today – we’re welcoming Nicola Norton Photography to the pages of the English Wedding Blog. I love Nicola’s relaxed documentary style and the gorgeous images she captures, and I look forward to seeing much more from her on the blog over the next few months! Grab a cuppa, nestle into something cosy and enjoy this little intro from Nicola before you head over to her beautiful website (links at the end of the feature). Have a wonderful day!

Discovering new talents and finding new wedding pics to swoon over is what I live for – stumbling across photographers whose photos take my breath away is one of the very best things in my wedding blogging life! Today I’d love to introduce you to lovely Becky Harley Photography, who is based in Welwyn Garden City and shoots weddings throughout Hertfordshire and surrounding counties. Her style is fabulous – one glimpse at her website home page and you will fall in love. I did!
