Nicola was a truly beautiful bride in an exquisite lace wedding dress by Sassi Holford, marrying Bertie in a Derbyshire village church with an old English feel to the day. I loved their focus on family and friends, and hearing about Nicola’s jewellery – all family heirlooms – was a real treat.

Today it’s time for the wedding reception, and I’ll leave you with part two of Nicola’s wedding story to enjoy!

Bertie and I had some photographs on our own in a field opposite the church – for which I clambered over a style – before joining everyone else.

Asking brides and grooms to share their own wedding stories is the best thing, ever!

Nicola’s story of her wedding to Bertie, from July last year, is one of my favourites. And the beautiful images of this traditional English wedding with a vintage flavour are just wonderful.

Wedding photographer Kirsten Mavric submitted the wedding for the blog. She sent me so many gorgeous pics I’m going to drag this one out… and trust me, you’ll adore me for it. 😉

Part one is the wedding day: from the bridal preparations in the morning to nerves, smiles, chuckles and kisses in church… I’ll hand over to Nicola to tell you more. Enjoy!

We got engaged in December and were marrying in July so there wasn’t too much time to dress shop. I basically went to look one day in January and narrowed it down to two and then reeled in my Mum to help with the final selection. Before I tried any on, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted – only that it wasn’t something strapless – but as soon as I put the “Milla” on in Sassi Holford (it’s also called Daisy on their website), I absolutely loved it.

Flamingoes in London at a wedding!

Flamingos in London at a wedding!

Today’s English wedding is so full of amazing things I didn’t know where to start. Hence the title: yes, there are flamingos in London. Being a northerner, that’s not really surprising, but it’s definitely lovely and exotic and pretty glamorous… which leads nicely on to…

…Colin and Lee’s rooftop wedding in Kensington. Where there are flamingos. And the photographs of the wedding and reception sent to me by wedding photographer Kirsten Mavric are lavish and gorgeous and exciting. Sit back and enjoy them!

Colin and Lee both wore grey suits, matching shirts with a really beautiful purple floral design, and pink rose buttonholes.
