Good morning, beautiful! How are you on this rather chilly October (!!) day? And can you even believe it’s properly autumn now? I know I can’t… but the best thing about autumn is all the fabulous weddings I’m seeing from lovely couples and photographers all around the country. This has to be the best time of year for wedding blogs, and I feel so lucky! Keep the submissions coming, guys!
We’d like to wish a heartfelt Happy Anniversary to Jenny Packham – so many of our beautiful English Wedding brides have worn her gowns on your best days ever, and since our own launch in 2009 we’ve become huge fans of Jenny’s inimitable bridal gowns.
Jenny’s classic dresses – relaunched to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Jenny Packham brand – ooze film star grace and splendour: they’re intricate and beautiful, softly glittering and breathtakingly elegant.
We’re delighted to announce the best selling styles to be reintroduced in celebration of this milestone year are Willow, Eden, Azalea, Clare, Joy and Aspen – all available now at the brand’s London flagship store.
I was really interested to read a couple of weeks ago that Jenny Packham wouldn’t be launching her bridal collections via catwalk shows. Her decision makes so much sense to me: for years I’ve seen – and mostly rejected – bridal designers’ submissions where all I see is dress after dress photographed under harsh lighting, against a dull background, surrounded by the ankles and handbags of boutique owners and stockists (sat either side of the catwalk, but still in shot). It was all very meh, (even in the days when meh was a new word!).
You don’t need 100 or more people to watch him put a ring on your finger. You don’t need the stress of a wedding table plan, huge corkage fees or to spend your day in a crowd of distant cousins. All you really need is you. Intimate weddings with only a handful of guests are my favourite, and beautiful bride Liz and Richard’s day is simply perfect. Don’t you just love that Jenny Packham dress?

You know when you look at a rainbow, and it’s so amazing it gets in your eyes and stays there all day? No? You’re about to, with today’s wonderfully colourful English wedding. The hot air balloon is only one of so many visual delights (and hey, if you’re training to be a balloon pilot!!!… it’s got to be done!) The styling and decor make this wedding so fabulously fun, unique and memorable – it has to be one of my favourite weddings on the blog this year. Gorgeous Kristy and Ollie shared lots of info about their day, so do read their fantastic interview after the images!
