I’m really loving taking a look back at our favourite weddings from 2018! Today is the turn of gorgeous Dinachi and Onu, whose day is elegant, beautiful and oh-so-beautifully styled. Dinachi told me their focus on the day was on having a relaxed and fun wedding day – and their smiles throughout are proof that they nailed it! The venue is Northbrook Park in Surrey,  their photographer is Marriedtomycamera.com. I LOVE this so much… I hope you do too!

More favourite weddings from 2018 – Rosie & Steve’s woodland wedding // James & Keye’s festival wedding // Tig & Piers’ glamorous celebration // Daisy & Will’s family-focused wedding.


Dinachi and Onu’s wedding took place at Northbrook Park in Surrey, with the ceremony at All Saints church nearby. The wedding looks so wonderfully joyful, especially the images of stunning bride Dinachi and gorgeous groom Onu being introduced and dancing into the wedding breakfast! I can only describe today’s wedding as take-your-breath-away-beautiful. The styling and colour palette are uniquely elegant; florals and decor just divine. All this, and yet Dinachi tells me their focus was on having a relaxed and fun wedding rather than a ‘perfect’ one. It totally looks like both!

This article is for all of the wedding photographers out there who would love to be featured (more) on wedding blogs.

I had an email chat with a lovely photographer last week – she submitted a wedding which wasn’t quite right for publication at that time. I explained why (as I always try to do) and she thanked me, saying often she got no feedback from bloggers. I wanted to try and explain in more detail why submitted weddings and shoots might be declined by wedding bloggers.

Note: I can’t speak for all wedding bloggers – we’re all different and have different selection criteria. But do read on: some of these are common sense and will apply to every wedding blogger.

1. ‘Fit’

Every blog has its look and philosophy. If you don’t know the blog and understand what is usually featured, your submission could be a waste of time. Some blogs are very niche; for example Rock n Roll Bride and Love My Dress feature very different wedding styles. Know where your wedding will fit before submitting.

Happy Friday everyone! Whatever you’re doing, have an amazing day and don’t work too hard! I’ll be blogging, planning some worksheets for my next calligraphy workshop and getting ready for a weekend of exploring and reaching new heights in the Lake District 🙂 First though, I have this beautiful wedding to share with you, submitted by lovely David of Married To My Camera. I will let him introduce beautiful Sarah and Ben and tell you all about their day. Enjoy!

Sarah and Ben’s wedding was at the gorgeous Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire. The couple are actually my neighbours, so no pressure there then! Both families were staying at King John’s House near to Larmer Tree Gardens and this is where both bride and groom got ready in the morning. It was an outdoor ceremony followed by some garden games and speeches outdoors too, before the wedding breakfast. All the 1000 paper cranes were made by Sarah!

We both wanted pictures that would tell the story of our wedding and so when we saw David’s portfolio, it was an easy choice.

David captured the real and intimate moments as well as the liveliness and vivacity typical of a Nigerian wedding in England.

He also went out of his way to allay our concerns and make us comfortable; from getting a second shooter to deal with the myriad group portraits that Nigerians love to accommodating the extended hours of our after party.
