I like to feature something a little special on a Friday – the day deserves extra happiness as we finish the working week… and so Ahram and Tom’s wedding is just perfect to share today. This gorgeous pair were married in Surrey last summer and their day is elegant, romantic and beautiful.

How did you choose your photographer?

We searched on Instagram.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

We were very pleased with Charlie and his two colleagues. The photos are absolutely amazing. We wanted to avoid cheesy posed photos, preferring candid ones that showed our personalities, and since he specialises in that style Charlie was the natural choice.

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

The venue, Nonsuch Mansion was a short trip from London so it was easily accessible for all our guests. The park surrounding it was beautiful and the building itself had its own character. Not having blank white walled rooms meant we didn’t have to decorate each room ourselves, so it came basically ready made for the wedding.

So this one’s really close to home for me: a Lake District wedding at one of our finest venues, nestling amongst the highest English mountains in the charming village of Grasmere. The venue is the Michelin-starred The Forest Side – a gem I’ve dined at, organised a photoshoot at, and where my mum & dad used to stay on their Lakes holidays before I was born!

Gorgeous couple Hemal and Katie had the most wonderful Lake District wedding, surrounded by their closest family and friends and with the venue dressed from head to toe in the most incredible florals, courtesy of outstanding florist Kevin from Brackens of Bowness. Their amazing photographer is lovely Tiree Dawson, and their day is already going down as one of my favourites on the blog for 2020 (and yup, I know it’s only January but WOWEEE!!!)

Word of mouth – Tiree was recommended to us by a friend who had a relative who had used her before. After an initial consultation we really liked her and therefore proceeded.

I love finding out I’m not the only one who loves our old English traditions – and seeing morris dancers at Katy and James’s wedding made me very happy! You see, my dad was a morris dancer and I spent many sunny days as a baby sat outside a pub in my pram while men danced around with bells on their legs. I still enjoy sunshine and pubs, but it’s harder to find morris dancers these days! There are many things I love about today’s wedding – the cake table with the proud ‘vegan’ sign in the centre gets a big thumbs up; the tipis look amazing and the flowers are little rays of sunshine! Katy and James make the loveliest couple, absolutely gorgeous in their wedding finery and beaming with happiness – this wedding just yells summer to me and I love every little bit of it!

We chose Damian mainly because we really liked the candid pictures he had on his site, we wanted our wedding to be fun and informal so we felt his style would fit in with our theme.
