English Wedding is growing, and I count all of our lovely members as a part of the English Wedding team. We’re proud to showcase beautiful weddings, creative and exciting modern suppliers and true talents from all over the UK.

Natural and authentic photography that doesn’t take you away from your wedding day.

I’m Annelie and I am a London-based documentary wedding photographer.

Photographing people is one of my favourite things in the world. This is especially true for weddings, where so much beauty, love, and emotions are packed into one day.

Should you polish your wedding? An odd question, I know – but think with me for a moment. In these days of Instagramming our lives and sharing only the carefully planned, tidy, and perfect sides of ourselves I kind of miss seeing photos that make me feel something. A gorgeous line of bridesmaids, a pristine wedding gown or a messy bouquet are all glorious to see on insta… but amongst all the wedding pretty, I love seeing a photo which will make me laugh out loud, scroll back up for another look or even identify with the people in the frame. And that has to be a real, spontaneous, unpolished wedding photograph.

It’s why I’m such a big fan of York Place Studios. They’re not about the pretty details – they capture the story of your day in the most fascinating compositions. They’re the wedding photographers most wedding photographers would choose to photograph their day. They shoot with real expertise and a flash of humour. They’re brilliant; their brides and grooms LOVE them – and they keep my little wedding blogging feet firmly on the ground.

Gorgeous Hertfordshire bride Anita is making a splash of fabulous colour on the English Wedding Blog today. Her vintage inspired styling is balanced with vibrant accents, and I’m in love with her Sally Beam wedding dress – isn’t it fab? Together with groom Naoto they planned the perfect day, and I love how refreshing their styling is. I hope you’ll adore it too!

Vibrant colours and beautiful styling for a Shenley Cricket Club wedding by Linus Moran Photography (30)

“I had mixed, bright flowers including roses and gerberas. I wanted the flowers to add a burst of colour and fun to the church and venue. Florist Sioned Rogers works alongside ‘Dress it Yourself‘ who did an amazing job of decorating the venue. I wanted a vintage picnic feel so I went for gingham tablecoths, bunting and lots of vintage containers and books to dress the tables. I made the table plan with a chalkboard and then had silk flowers stapled around the frame. It was actually quite fun to make and lots of people complemented it!

Annie and Chris had a truly unique wedding – they know some amazing people and through friends they were able to marry at London’s fabulous Lyric Theatre – which gave their wedding so much personality and atmosphere, it’s just fabulous! The flowers are bright and colourful, styling is elegant and theatrical… and today’s bride and groom are as gorgeous as they are lovely. Images are by Sussex photographer Neil Walker.

We used bright spring colours for our flowers – peaches, lilacs, yellows & pinks. James from Detta Phillips is brilliant – they looked spectacular.

Don’t miss Chris and Annie’s wise advice (and genuine supplier recommendations) for you lovely lot, which you’ll find just after the photos if you scroll through the full feature today. “We designed and made our wedding stationery ourselves. It was a really enjoyable experience and we were really proud of our handiwork once they were finished. We made place cards and table plan in the same style as the invitations. Our navy & burgundy spotty theme ran throughout from the save the dates to the orders of ceremony and menus. We also designed print-outs of readings and songs to frame & sign with messages as thank you gifts.

Chic city wedding from the Millennium Gloucester Hotel with Patryk Stanisz Photography (22)

London wedding photographer Patryk told me Joanna and Mitesh’s wedding had an amazing atmosphere throughout the entire day. “They are a very happy couple and guests came from all over the world to share their beautiful wedding ceremony, which was at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel.

I had seen Patryk’s work before at a friend’s wedding, so we knew the quality we would be getting. However what makes Patryk stand out is his style and attitude, he lets the event take place around him and his eye for detail for capturing the perfect shot to allow a story to be told is amazing.

Oh I do, more than anything else in the world, love to be beside the seaside. It’s home for me… and so seaside weddings make my heart sing! This one is all kinds of wonderful… and it’s deliciously different. We’re talking seaside chic, ultra modern and arty backdrops, and so many of those little moments (watch out for the smaller guests – they’re awesome!) which make every wedding unique. LOVE this!!!

So many things made this day memorable, from the seaside location to the venue and to the couple themselves – seriously, such lovely people, and they really made me feel like part of the day. Also, Ian’s speech was fantastic – I don’t think I’ve seen someone so nervous, and yet pull off the speech so well! He couldn’t stay in one place and look at Annabel without being close to tears, so he had to keep moving and it made for a really lovely moment, which had everyone close to tears themselves!

In my many years of photographing weddings, I have been incredibly privileged to witness what I have. Such genuine emotion touches the soul and allows one to be completely and utterly immersed in a moment, collectively sharing joy and happiness with a congregation of brand new acquaintances. Here are a few tips and tricks I have picked up along the way for dealing with group photographs. Everyone wants them, however it is the one thing that guests continually cite as the one thing that they dislike about a wedding day. I make a point to all couples to make sure that this part of the day is timetabled and organised as efficiently as possible: when done correctly, group photos can actually be a lot of fun and present opportunities for great candid moments.

Nadia and Andreas’s wedding is pretty darn special… she’s so amazingly pretty, and they really do look so joyful and content in each other’s arms. Today’s wedding is a treat: beautiful images which capture the atmosphere of a very special day. There are some amazing shots: Nadia’s dress looks divine in every photo, and I love the image of Andreas before the ceremony – no nerves, just pure happiness. Fantastic.

“Nadia was a stunning Bride – so photogenic, and wore her Caroline Castigliano dress so well. It was the first time I’d been part of a multi-faith ceremony – both Muslim and Christian – which made it feel very special. Plus I managed to get my favourite picture of a bride arriving for her ceremony!

I love meeting couples before they book, it’s exciting to hear about their plans, but it can also be a little nerve racking, a bit like going on a first date!  This first meeting is about getting to know each other and finding out if you like each other, after all, your wedding photographer will be with you for a long time on your big day.

As well as hearing all about your wedding plans, this meeting is about you seeing gorgeous album samples and finding out how your photographer works.  Any professional wedding photographer worth their salt will have insurance, back up equipment, provide you with a contract, and all those great business practices.  So what should you ask during that first meeting? Claire asked me to give a little insight into those first meetings, and to share the questions we’ve been asked by couples just like you, as well as the answers we give.

Words & images by Liam Smith Photography

Photography is subjective – what I like, you may not. This presents you, my dear reader, with a choice to make: what do I like, and can I afford it?

What is important to remember at all times is the true significance of photography and the photograph. It preserves our lives and our memories in a way that nothing else can.

I wrote my dissertation on the importance of photography and found through thorough analysis of historical photographs and cinema, that photographs actually possess the power to effectively overwrite our own memories. When we attempt to recall a moment, our minds can recall a photograph as a stimulus rather than the actual lived memory. Consider that for a moment, and you’re more likely to remember the photograph of the event, rather than your own memory of the event you witnessed. With that in mind, photography is elevated to a status few thought possible, which adds a whole new dimension to the question, how important are my wedding photographs?

Do ask your wedding photographer about an engagement shoot – it’s one of the loveliest things you can do in the run up to your wedding (and a brilliant, fun and romantic escape from wedding planning!)

Kasi and Robert went to Blenheim Palace for their engagement shoot with London wedding photographer Patryk Stanisz, and I love how the images capture their relationship at a moment in time… there’s a lot to be said for memories of those precious days just before your wedding, don’t you think?

Engagement photo shoot at London's Blenheim Palace by Patryk Stanisz (13)

It was definitely the coldest day in England last autumn. Despite this Kasi and Robert were the smiliest couple I have ever photographed. The photo session took place in Blenheim Palace, a very beautiful place and really worth seeing – it’s the perfect place to relax or have a romantic picnic in the summer time.”
Patryk was a great photographer – we would definitely recommend him!! He took our engagement photos and they turned out even better than expected. He is great with lighting and composition. He also was able to capture our playful personality perfectly. You can’t get better value for money in the area.” ~ Kasi & Robert
