Today’s real wedding features a stunning short-haired brunette, the lovely Charlie, who wears a bird cage veil and Paloma Blanca wedding dress. The stationery is all home made, and yet this wedding at Shrigley Hall in Cheshire looks wonderfully elegant and stylish – you will LOVE it!!

When Charlie first got in touch with me I was so excited – her photos are just stunning, as is she – and just as excitingly her wedding photographer is the lovely Jonny Draper. I’ve featured Jonny’s work on the English Wedding Blog lots of times (more here: http://english-wedding.com/tag/jonny-draper-photography), and I have the biggest admiration for how he works: Jonny’s built his wedding photography business on friendship. Seriously – if you’re getting married in the north west then you need to meet with Jonny for a chat and you’ll see what I mean! Charlie and Dan describe him as ‘incredible‘ – what more do you need to know?!

Good morning! How was your weekend? I hope you survived the snow… and had some fun playing in it too! Back to weddings now, and I have an absolute cracker to begin the week with. Zoe and Mark’s Cheshire wedding has bags of character and is guaranteed to make you smile. Zoe is beautiful, they make a fantastic couple and the wedding film will bring a tear to your eye… I should mention it’s by the lovely Craig at Unforgettable Memories.

I’m sharing this wedding in two blog features, this morning and tomorrow (there’s something VERY special and exciting on the way this afternoon at 4pm in between!) – the wedding film is simply amazing, and I’ve shared a little of Zoe’s wedding report with you here. My huge thanks to Jonny Draper Photography for sharing the lovely images of the day with us all today.

If life was a rainbow… I think Rebecca and Matt’s wedding would be the pot of gold at the end. I love this wedding for the bright and wonderfully happy colours, the beautiful bride and groom and the atmosphere of celebration and love in every picture.

There’s an unusual story to introduce this real wedding with – Matt had discovered wedding photographer Jonny Draper at Rebecca’s brother’s wedding last year, and the whole thing began with a phone call even before the proposal… Jonny himself picks up the story:

“What a wedding. It was just perfect. The amazing weather smack bang in the middle of a run of rain, thunder, fire and brimstone (it felt like it a few times!) and the most perfect couple. Bex and Matt.

I’ve known Bex & Matt for a couple of years now. Last year I photographed Bex’s brother’s wedding – Ben & Jordana. Bex was one of Jordy’s gorgeous bridesmaids. I also photographed Catherine & Richard’s wedding last year. Bex was one of Catherine’s gorgeous bridesmaids. Matt was starting to feel the pressure…!!!

We’ve seen all the beautiful images from 14 of the North West’s finest wedding photographers – I think it’s time for a story: let’s go from “Once upon a time…” to “this week we’re launching Love Bridal!”, shall we? Here’s Emma Draper to tell you all about the brand new Love Bridal boutique and her fabulous designer’s collections launching today.

by Emma Draper for Love Bridal boutique

Love Bridal Boutique has been born out of our passion for all things bridal! My own prior experience as Boutique Manager for a Manchester bridal boutique, coupled with my work as a bridal make-up artist and also as Studio Director within Jonny’s photography business too (yes we live and breathe all things bridal!) has given me invaluable knowledge about the wedding industry. Let’s just say that weddings are what we do and what makes us tick. So, given all our experience, Love Bridal is the very last piece of our lovely wedding jigsaw.
