How was your weekend? I’ve been working away quietly on calligraphy projects for the summer as well as a very early walk in the mountains on Saturday morning… blissful! I love it when Mondays don’t feel like work though… and today with beautiful Sahiti and Nitin’s wedding on my screens I feel happy, joyful… I really do love my job!

This gorgeous pair had two ceremonies in the Great Hall at Ragley Hall, a stunning country mansion set in thousands of acres of its own estate overlooking unspoilt Warwickshire countryside. Their civil ceremony was held in the morning, followed by a traditional Hindu ceremony in the afternoon. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, there are so many wonderful details from Sahiti’s beautiful henna to her classic white lace dress, and there’s the most wonderful air of celebration throughout the entire day – if you could capture the warmth, joy and love of a family celebration in one series of photographs, ladies and gents this blog post would be IT!

For a wedding photograph to catch my eye, it has to make me feel something. Whether that’s a warm fuzzy feeling or a sense of excitement and anticipation will depend on the image. Sometimes I find myself smiling at the screen before me, or lifting my hand away from the screen and stopping in my tracks as I scroll – because I want to take it all in. I have always had a little motto when choosing images for the English Wedding Blog – “never delete a grandma” – this is why.

Clive Blair is a Birmingham wedding photographer whose images all have that something that stops me in my tracks and makes me feel something. Just look at the selection we’ve chosen to share with you today, and you’ll see what I mean. Because after the big day it’s not about the styling or florals anymore: your dress and suit will be packed away; stationery forgotten and cake all gone – but the memories held in your images will last a lifetime and more.
