As specialists in designing and producing marquee weddings, working in a variety of structures from Sperry Tents to Clearspan Marquees and everything in between, lovely Michelle from Pocketful of Dreams (more info at the end of the post!) has plenty of expert advice to share on styling a wedding marquee for maximum impact.

If you want to create a wedding that is truly personal to you then a marquee allows you to do just that. You get the chance to build your wedding space from the ground up and have full control over the look and feel, as well as your choice of suppliers which will all impact on the experience your guests will have.  Typical wedding venues often have their own distinctive aesthetic, whereas a marquee is a true blank canvas. You literally have layers and layers of white canvas to play with and to style to your liking. Which is both an incredibly exciting opportunity and a daunting one to boot“.

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having the most amazing Christmas and enjoying a little time off work and with your families and friends. I promised myself the English Wedding Blog would have brand new features every day over the festive season, and today’s wedding is a real treat – definitely one not to miss!

Jae-Marie got in touch with me in November to tell me all about her beautiful eclectic London wedding to Dan, and I’m so delighted she did. What a stunning bride… a gorgeous couple in fact, and the most inspiring and creative wedding day! The flowers are a treat, and there’s fabulous styling by Bellaboo and Beau, specialist wedding stylists based in Sussex.

If this doesn’t get your toes swinging and your face smiling I don’t know what will.

Thanks to wedding photographer Matt Parry for sharing his best bits of last year! He says, “although I couldn’t squeeze everybody’s venue, cake, feet, smiles, shoes, laughter, silly dancing, tears, children and drunken guests into 4 minutes 30 seconds hopefully it will give you a flavour of my year and how much fun and emotion plays out in front of my lens… enjoy! photos by me and music by “allo darlin‘”

Here’s another gorgeous wedding from London photographer Matt Parry. He says (on his blog), “aidan and sarah’s wedding was another lovely laid back and informal affair with just a few traditional trimmings…just the way I like it!“… and you know what, it really shows when you ‘click’ with your wedding photographer like this.

My tip of the day then: meet your wedding photographer. If they ask about your wedding, your style, your personalities… and if you can really identify with them – book them! Matt Parry is right up my street.

In Matt’s own blogging style, I’ll show you all the gorgeous photos from Aidan and Sarah’s wedding day and finish up with Matt’s YouTube slideshow of their day at the end. Enjoy!

It’s almost the end of the year, I’m planning blog updates for January and wondering where 2010 went – doesn’t time fly. Some of us have had a wonderful year though, and wedding photographer Matt Parry definitely has!

Matt contacted me on Twitter to show me his best bits. And within minutes had me tapping my feet and grinning at my computer screen.

I’ve watched this three times  already – Matt’s had an amazing year and these are his top wedding photographs from 2010.

Matt – thank you. I love these! A beautiful compilation and a compelling showcase.
