Ah… the weekend awaits and it looks like it’s going to be a sunny one! Before we head up into the mountains I have a stunning wedding to share with you – it’s from last summer and you can almost taste the August sunshine! Tom & Alex’s day has everything: it’s beautifully styled, they both look amazing, the details are on point and these two are so loved up it’s melting my wedding bloggy heart. Bonus points for the boat… this is an epic day and I just know you’ll love it!

Have a lovely Friday!

How did you choose your photographer?

We searched for a photographer who would capture the excitement, feeling and emotions of the day. We also wanted the photos to be bright, colourful and creative, this is when we stumbled upon Greg’s portfolio at a wedding fayre and knew he was exactly what we were looking for.


Fair warning: we’re about to drown you in breathtaking flowers and foliage, steal your heart with a twist of authentic vintage styling and leave you swooning with one of the loveliest shoots of the summer. Huge thanks to our lovely friend Anthony from Special Day Wedding Photos, and hats off to the impressively creative bunch of wedding suppliers who made this amazingness happen! There’s a full supplier list below for you to add to your planning folders. I will leave you with lovely Katie, stylist at best.day.ever! to share her concepts with you and explain how all of this came about.

With love,

Welcome to the week, my lovelies! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. We’re kicking off this week with an absolute stunner of a wedding: beautiful Serena & Michael’s Worcestershire wedding has the loveliest atmosphere of elegance and glamour – I just know you’ll love this. Their wedding photographer is new to English Wedding: Nicholas Rogers Photography is based in the Midlands – he gets a brilliant review from the happy couple. Other suppliers include Georgina Scott Bridal Boutique in Stourbridge, where Serena bought that fabulous Martina Liana dress, Secret Garden Wedding Services, Chandni BeautyJon Paul Menswear and Flowers of Kidderminster.

“My mum dried flowers for a year for the confetti, our conservatory was covered for months at a time! We also bought wall paper for the paper cones to put them in. They were so beautiful, all the guests loved them. We assembled the favours ourselves, painstakingly building 150 boxes, putting macaroons in them and attaching a ribbon and a tag to each one. We made our seating plan ourselves from a huge picture frame and printed the table inserts at home.

I LOVE that we’ve been able to tell you about some wonderfully creative and sustainable / ethical wedding suppliers on the blog this week. If you missed Thursday’s blog do take a peek at the beautiful Sanyukta Shrestha dresses we featured here.  Today I’m really excited to share a wedding style photoshoot from a group of like-minded Dorset wedding suppliers who came together to create a sustainable and eco-friendly wedding look.

The photographers are lovely Kiss In Light, who are based in the New Forest. They have made changes in their home and work lives (taking up yoga, living as ethical and eco-friendly a lifestyle as possible, and bringing sustainability into the core of their business and ethos) over the last year, and this inspired the photoshoot: they wanted to show all of you lovely couples how beautiful a sustainable wedding style can be! So with the images we’re brining you today we want to bring you a little spark, a glimmer of inspiration to help you create your own ethical and sustainable wedding.
