Mark and Jag were married in the town where I was born – in the hotel where I used to stay, as a little girl, with my family every Christmas time. I have very fond memories of The Old Hall Hotel in Buxton, and to see it pop into my inbox this week was pretty amazing.

Even more special is the wedding I have to share with you today. Mark and Jag chose to have an intimate celebration of their love with their closest family and friends. As today’s beautiful bride Jag says, this is…

“A wonderful, small wedding full of memories shared with people who meant the most to the bride and groom (parents, grandparents, siblings, best mates and that’s it). I wouldn’t have changed anything.”

It really is perfect. I must say a huge thank you to the lovely Lucy from Lucy West Images for sharing her photographs of Jag and Mark’s wedding in Buxton. It’s all about the love – a very special wedding day I’ve been looking forward to showing you!

The launch of Love Bridal today is something for the wedding industry in the North West of England to really celebrate. While I’m now Norther and Wester than all of the photographers involved in the shoot, I’m still delighted that English Wedding Blog is playing a part in this launch: the way these guys work together is inspiring.

Who remembers blinking in amazement and squealing in delight at the couple whose mad, exciting and painty engagement shoot I featured a little while ago? The one where they got covered in it, wrote LOVE on the wall and had to go home painted pink, yellow and blue from head to toe?

It was brilliant. I loved it. You loved it… with all your blog comments it went down a treat. And then David and Rachel got married. And the wedding day is EVEN BETTER! (of course it is… but as creative and inspiring and fun goes, it’s just incredible).

Rachel wrote the loveliest wedding report to share with us. So I’ll hand over to excellent wedding photographer Lucy West for the wedding pictures (part one) and to gorgeous bride Rachel to tell you all about it.

A lack of funds teamed with an overwhelming urge to be creative made our wedding quite unique. Our main themes were newspaper, buttons, graffiti paint and all things colourful!

Lucy West fun engagement photography UK (29)There’s a thin line between being creative and ever so slightly mad, and David and Rachel are right on that line… in fact they’re dancing along the line, happily making the most amazing pre wedding shoot with photographer Lucy West. And I love them to bits – this is inspiring, hilarious, gorgeous and thrilling.

Lucy West fun engagement photography UK (25)David and Rachel are all about romance and playfulness. This photo is really sweet – and I love Rachel’s cheeky smile too. Definitely a couple who have a lot of fun together!
