As always with a Martin Dabek Photography wedding, I urge you to scroll all the way through to the end for the amazing evening shots, so beautifully lit and breathtaking! Today we’re at Polhawn Fort for gorgeous couple Catherine & Iain’s micro wedding. The pair went through all the stress of postponements and ever-increasing restrictions on guest numbers for their 2020 wedding – but despite being small, this is a really lovely, romantic and heartwarming celebration and I’m proud to be sharing it with you today. Catherine’s dress is a beautiful Stella York gown, and Iain looks fantastic in a navy blue three piece suit. The flowers are glorious, and of course the images by Polhawn Fort wedding photographer Martin Dabek are out of this world.
Claire and Andy were one of those lucky couples who were able to say their I dos in 2020. They’re part of the ‘Married Now, Party Later Revolution‘ we’ve seen here on English Wedding – and their micro wedding is the loveliest thing. Proof again that #LoveIsntCancelled – and a real joy for us to see. The gorgeous pair married at Claire’s local church and hired Bristol Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek, who captured their day beautifully.

We’ve featured some incredible bouquets on English Wedding in recent weeks – and with Valentine’s Day this weekend it inspired me to put a little collection together to inspire you! I’ve had a little whizz through our recent archives and found these stunning wedding flower ideas. There’s something for everyone – real flowers for every season, in every colour you can dream of. Some of our favourite bouquets are wild and flowing; others neat and pretty. There are bouquets with oodles of foliage; and some with simple blooms and statement flowers. And we’ve picked (pun intentional!) examples from florists around the UK to share with you today. I hope you fall in love with some of these – do Pin away if your Pinterest boards are ready for some floral inspiration!
The moments of joy that happened in 2020 feel more significant than ever before. Those rare weddings where couples got to say their vows, the celebrations of love amongst the tragedy of the pandemic… these feel sweeter than ever, and so beautiful. Meredith and Charlie’s wedding had only 15 guests, with loved ones tuning in via zoom from all over the world. They married at Priston Mill in Bath, and chose Somerset wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day. The images are outstanding, and Martin gets a glowing review from the happy couple below! This stunning pair worked with some fabulous wedding suppliers, all mentioned in their interview especially for English Wedding.
Today’s gorgeous couple married in the summer of 2020, and with covid restrictions limiting their choices they still had the most amazing day – it’s all beautiful. Jess found her dress at Monsoon and fell in love with it; Justin bought his suit online and loved it too – they both look fabulous. This lovely pair kept an eye on sustainability with their wedding: hiring items rather than buying, choosing candle favours from a maker who donates a % of profits to bee conservation, and donating part of their gift money to a local charity kitchen.
