I’m almost tempted to tell the story of Lori and Tom’s wedding backwards… because I’m in love with this photo:

The only reason I’m telling the story from the beginning is that I’m just as excited to show you all of the other images of the day… today’s real wedding is full of surprises, beautiful touches and smiles from beginning to end. You’ll love it!

Lori and Tom were married in the summer, and seeing their wedding today is warming my heart – it’s a beautiful celebration for a gorgeous couple in one of the most magnificent venues our country has to offer: Studley Castle. The ceilings are spectacular; the setting is incredible and the atmosphere is spine tingling!

Lori’s dress was created for her from her own vision: she bought a strapless bridal gown and had a lace top made especially for her by a local bridal boutique – it looks fabulous and I love her approach to customising an off-the-peg wedding dress!

Hey lovely! Today I have a 1920s inspired wedding for you – a gorgeous little dose of glamorous vintage with a beautiful bride and super handsome groom. Rachel and Mike are brilliant – they styled their Chester wedding creatively with suppliers found online. Rachel designed the stationery herself and it’s fabulous.

Rachel’s love of the 1920s era flowed through the wedding day – first there was the dress, and then came the ‘silent movie’ idea. The invitations and place settings were inspired this way, and even the chalkboard style table numbers and bunting came from the silent movie idea.

Images are by Rosie at Ragdoll Photography, who gets a great review from our bride and groom. They had an engagement shoot in February and by the time their wedding came around they said they felt as though they’d known Rosie for ages – which really makes the images of the day look relaxed and fun!
