A blue wedding dress and fabulous suit – both Vivienne Westwood and wonderfully alternative for our lovely couple today. We’re loving the glorious summer skies and a trip across the countryside in a vintage blue bus! This is a dream of a wedding in Cumbria, with fabulous images by our friend and English Wedding member Jaye-Peg Photography.

How did you choose your photographer?

We searched online and chose the photographer because we liked her style.

A vibrant, relaxed micro wedding with just two witnesses – and all the fabulous details to make the day look amazing. Jade and Richard had to rethink their Nigerian wedding because of the pandemic, and downsized their plans to this intimate and romantic celebration of their love. With a gorgeous bride and groom, a stunning pixie dress and funky suit, summer meadow wildflowers and a home made cake, this is exciting and inspiring – the perfect little wedding. Special thanks to lovely Laura from Freeform Images for sharing her images with us today.

I was over the moon when Nik from Trilion Productions got in touch to share this lovely little micro wedding with us. Gorgeous couple Roanne and Rey were married on Roanne’s birthday in July, celebrating with closest family and friends – and their adorable little boy is the star of the show! Roanne’s dress is wonderful for a summer wedding, with a beautiful skirt silhouette – I love it! Styling was kept elegant and minimal, with a simple calla lily bouquet. I fell in love with this wedding for the glorious images, and the joy and love which shines so strongly through the images. In 10, 20, 50 years time looking back on this day will be as perfect as any big wedding could ever be. Congratulations Roanne & Rey, we LOVE your wedding!“english

I know you’re going to love a wedding if I find myself beaming at my screen as I write it all up. And today I did just that, SO many times! It’s not just the beautiful bride and gorgeous groom, and it’s not just Sally Rawlins’ amazing images which are making all my wedding bloggy senses tingle… it’s the words. It’s the heartfelt story of a wedding, the focus on connection and family, and the generous and glowing reviews for some fabulous suppliers, which are wonderful to hear. Gemma & Sam’s day is going into my secret little ‘favourite weddings‘ folder and will most certainly be making a reappearance on the blog one day in the future, for sure!“english

In the years after the second world war, weddings were low key, frugal and intimate. But I’ve seen family photos of weddings from those years, and they’re beautiful, treasured family heirlooms. They’ve come to mind many times over the last year, as so many couples have had to postpone and downsize the dream weddings they were hoping for.
