Whenever I see an English Asian wedding I wish I had more in my inbox to share with you – the elegance and wonderful colours are out of this world! And Dharmendra and Divya’s contemporary English wedding with an Asian twist is simply amazing. I jumped at the chance to share it with you as soon as I saw it!

My thanks to a gorgeous couple for sharing such a glorious wedding day on the English Wedding Blog – and congratulations! Thanks also to Phil for the submission.

It strikes me this morning that a PapaKata wedding is always exciting and unique. If you want your wedding day to be beautiful but non-traditional – you’ll be needing one of these!

Siobhan and Chris had a beautiful, individual wedding in Cheshire this year. With my friend and Cheshire wedding photographer Phil Drinkwater to document their wedding day in pictures, this is such an inspiring story to share with you.

Before I leave you to enjoy Siobhan and Chris’s wedding report with all of those beautiful images, I need to mention the dancing. I’ve featured PapaKata weddings on English Wedding Blog before – but today is special. Watch out for the last few pictures, which show PapaKata by night… the sparkling lights and festival atmosphere is enchanting!

Enjoy.

What did you wear?

I wore an all-lace Lusan Mandongus gown, with a sash ‘Lola’ by Sash and Co and Rachel Simpson shoes ‘Mimi’ all purchased at the beautiful Cheshire bridal boutique, the White Closet.

I’ve made a new friend. Wedding photographer Phil Drinkwater sent in Emma and Tom’s gorgeous Cheshire wedding to feature on the blog at the beginning of September. I followed it up with a wedding inspiration board and we got chatting. I’m absolutely delighted to now welcome Phil as a new sponsor of the English Wedding blog.

I need you to do me a favour. I need you to scroll slowly through this wedding blog feature because I don’t want you to miss a thing. There’s something about Emma and Tom’s wedding that tugs at the old heartstrings… such emotion in the photos, it’s like every image is a really, really precious moment in time.

Maybe it’s just me feeling emotional. Maybe it’s the way I’ve just looked at the images. Maybe it’s incredibly sensitive and empathetic wedding photography from Phil Drinkwater. I’d love to know how this wedding blog post makes you feel!

wedding blog real weddings UK (7)Oh, and I also have to gloat (vaguely in the direction of Rock My Wedding blog) – because I got a wedding report from a groom. Charlotte featured a groom’s report a few weeks ago, and I was so jealous! When I saw that Tom had written his report of the wedding for me today, I was over the moon.

So with no further ado, I’ll hand over to Phil Drinkwater (images) and groom Tom (words) to share a very special wedding with you today. Enjoy!
