Ahh… I can almost smell the sunshine from today’s sublime English wedding – looking at these images is the loveliest reminder of summer, and the details of the day are simply perfect. Stunning bride Sarah has written about her day – and I just love that it was so perfect, this family home is set to become one of England’s prettiest new wedding venues.

“James and I got married at his parent’s house, Midway Manor, in Bradford-on-Avon and we would like to open up Midway Manor to other couples getting married as it is a splendid place.

We were blessed to be able to make use of James’ parent’s country home which has beautiful land with a lake and waterfall feature in the front of the house and a pretty manicured “secret” garden with an array of flower beds, kitchen gardens, peony patch (my favourite flower), walkways and pockets at the back of the house.

I remember being so excited when Louise Adby first got in touch in the summer with a beautiful Cold Harbour Barn wedding – it truly was such a wonderfully romantic English wedding and a perfect fit for our lovely blog! A few months later and I’m more than thrilled to be welcoming lovely Louise as an English Wedding Blog sponsor.

Louise’s photography combines the very best of contemporary fine art style with all the wonderful storytelling of reportage wedding photography. “I love the contrast between raw spontaneous moments set against beautiful composed portraits, but portraits that have feeling and a connection between the couple.

I spend most of the day documenting quietly and sensitively (until we are on the dance floor then I throw myself into the thick of the action) but when it comes to crafting beautiful fine art portraits I give gentle guidance with where and how to stand but keep in mind the personality of the couple so I don’t lose character with a forced pose.”

So this is new… and kind of amazing to read! Gorgeous bride Sophie told me Cold Harbour Barn was so much more than a wedding venue: “The barn has so much character and charm that a lot of wedding venues simply don’t have – it has real soul.” It totally shines through in the images from their beautiful wedding day too!

Today’s wedding is lovely, with a ‘barely there’ colour palette, gorgeous peonies and lots and lots and lots of fabulous DIY details.

Gorgeous bride Sophie has shared some great advice in her interview at the end of the feature, but do take a little time to scroll through all of the beautiful images before you read it – they’re really special.
