Real wedding at Brunswick House with images by London photographer Kristian Leven (43)

Brunswick House really is such an amazing, and unique venue – it’s right in the heart of London, packed with salvaged curiosities, sparkling chandeliers, and an eclectic mix of vintage paraphernalia.

“Ally + Dan themselves made this such a memorable day – such amazing characters! I’ve actually seen them since the wedding and we’ve gotten on so well, I wish I could see them more often! There was also an incredibly moving speech – Ally’s dad passed away before the wedding due to illness, but wrote a speech in the event he wouldn’t make it. It was read out by a close friend of the couple, and there really wasn’t a dry eye in the house – me included.”

The decoration was all low key, we hung lanterns in the marquee along with wooden hearts but we wanted to keep the decoration to a minimum. Elvey Farm has its own florist, a wonderful lady called Lesley Masters. I gave Lesley some rough ideas and asked for everything to appear natural like it had just been picked from the garden and she came up with the beautiful creations.

“I was delighted with the photography from our wedding. Fiona managed to capture the day perfectly and really reflected the country feel we tried to create. The candid photos of family and friends laughing during the speeches were wonderful.

Happy Monday! Did you have a lovely weekend? I hope so 🙂 As it’s the first full week back at work for many of us this week, I’m sharing lots of real weddings on English Wedding Blog this week, starting with Anisha and Mark’s gorgeous DIY wedding. You’ll have a nice little escape every day if you pop back every morning at 11 o’clock – and you can even have real weddings delivered to your email inbox if you subscribe to the blog!UK wedding DIY ideas Sam Johnson Photography (1)

So today’s wedding is full of creative ideas and much of the wedding styling was done by the beautiful bride Anisha. Everything from the fab table plan to ice cream vouchers were handmade for this lovely wedding in the Leicestershire countryside. I also love that Mark and Anisha chose to have a humanist ceremony to make their day more flexible and sentimental – but I’ll let Anisha tell you all about it in the wedding report she’s shared with us (towards the end of the blog post).

What a strange coincidence: I have two weddings in the space of a single week where the grooms sing an Oasis number at the reception – totally unrelated, but there’s definitely a taste of “rock n roll star” in the air this week!

Before I start curling my lip and drawing out every last syllable, on this blog post, I’ll tell you more about the wedding. This one is simple, elegant and guaranteed to make you smile. Yasmin & Darren Forrester were married at Turkey Mill in Kent, and chose Billie and Matt Photography to capture their day on camera.

It’s a beautiful celebration and the love and laughter are what weddings are all about. Enjoy. x

Who proposed, and how?

It was on the 22 September 2011. We were on a sunset cruise off the coast of Jamaica in the Caribbean Sea. After seeing a rainbow and a school of dolphins following our boat we both witnessed the most amazing sunset. Once the sun went down Darren went onto one knee and made me the happiest girl ever.

top UK wedding photography blog Chris Hanley (25)Today’s real wedding blog is a true feast for your eyes and heart: with exquisite photography from one of England’s top wedding photographers, and so many romantic moments – Rick and Karen are head over heels in love and it shows. They married at Rookery Hall in June and chose my friend Chris Hanley Photography to capture their day. The images are simply out of this world – Chris is a master photographer whose images are used by Queensberry to sell the most luxurious wedding albums money can buy.

There’s more! Karen is a designer, and the wedding stationery is all her own work. The typography is gorgeous; the art deco feel of her designs is elegant and fashionable, and I love a wedding where lettering and type are a key feature of the decor and styling.

Karen and Rick take centre stage as today’s bride and groom, with Karen looking stunning in her bespoke David Fielden wedding dress and Rick so very handsome in his military uniform. You will love these two – with an outstanding collection of wedding photographs and a fantastic wedding report to enjoy – this is one of the very best. Enjoy!

You are all making my heart melt this month with your proposal stories – truly, every real wedding blog submission is bringing me close to happy tears! Hannah and Dave’s wedding report begins with their own proposal story – and all I’ll say is: imagine how Hannah felt as that particular day unfolded. It’s wonderful!

Their wedding is another very special day full of love for family and friends, with a relaxed and deliriously happy feel to it – the wedding photographs from Taylor Barnes Photography (based in Bristol) really capture the emotions of the day (and some gorgeous details too!) – while Hannah and Dave’s wedding report captures the excitement and is guaranteed to bring a big soppy smile to your face! (I’m doing mine now!)

You’ll love this real wedding blog – with the most stunning bride in Maggie Sottero ‘Tracey’ and her adoring (and handsome!) groom who just doesn’t stop smiling all day – it’s an amazing day and I’m so glad to be sharing this wedding with you today.

A quick, simple and very beautiful wedding blog post for you this morning everyone – Aaron from Reel Weddings emailed me with a little compliment about my calligraphy and this little message “thought I’d send you this little email to see if you wished to pop this film on your blog. It’s a little bit vintage and 60s inspired with a chilled and relaxed day with lots of shots of the sun. We like the sun. We miss it.”

I miss it too. But it’s lovely to remember what it was like! More to the point this is the most delightful little wedding film from one of my favourite venues. The story of the ‘other lovely dinosaur’ sets a lighthearted and romantic tone, and everything about Caroline and Warren’s wedding appeals to me – I’m still smiling to myself, ten minutes after watching their wedding film.

I think Naomi and Elric are a wonderful couple – individual, glamorous, quirky, creative and exciting. Their wedding is fabulous: from Naomi’s stunning outfit and captivating smile to Elric’s inspired choice of wedding reading and their shared wedding report this is a feature I’m proud to have on English Wedding Blog today! I do hope you love it too.

Isn't Naomi gorgeous?!

The wedding venue is Birmingham’s Highbury Hall; the images are all by Midlands-based wedding photographers Rob and Sarah Gillespie. I want to rush right in to Naomi and Elric’s wedding report – it’s one of very few I’ve ever had where the bride and groom have written their wedding story together – and so, it’s very special.

Enjoy!

UK wedding blog photo (30)I hope you’re wrapped up all snuggly and warm this morning – not only is it freezing outside, I also have a January wedding to share with you today. Joanna and Angus got married at Kingscote Barn in Gloucestershire at the beginning of the year; a day full of romance, shared glances and elegant, individual style. Joanna’s wedding dress and jacket are gorgeous; Angus looks the part in top hat and tails. I adore the bridesmaids’ capes (want one!) – as soon as they caught my eye, I wanted this particularly wonderful wedding to show you on English Wedding blog.

Joanna’s wedding report is fabulous. Her advice is great: “Decide what you care about and plan, plan, plan. Then on the day: Relax.” There’s more – but I’ll leave Joanna to tell her wedding story in her own words.

Photography is by the lovely Samantha J Photography, based in the West Midlands.

I love maps. I love photos that stop me in my tracks a bit. I love seeing something just a tad different. I love Alex and James’s wedding at Harlaxton Manor, with its towers and turrets and old English charm. I just love blogging weddings!

wedding photo by Beautiful Life Photography (26)I shared part one of this beautiful Harlaxton Manor wedding yesterday. I have loads more to share today (best bits till last, an’ all that). More of Alex’s beautiful lace wedding dress, some jaw-dropping pics of Harlaxton Manor (it’s a whopper), croquet, maps (did I mention the maps?), huge smiles, romance and laughter.

Of course, there’s Alex’s wedding report to share with you, and once again the beautiful images are from Beautiful Life Photography (funnily enough).

Enjoy!

wedding photo by Kirsten Mavric (33)Yesterday I was delighted to share Nicola and Bertie’s beautiful Derbyshire wedding blog with you – with the most gorgeous photos from Kirsten Mavric.

Nicola was a truly beautiful bride in an exquisite lace wedding dress by Sassi Holford, marrying Bertie in a Derbyshire village church with an old English feel to the day. I loved their focus on family and friends, and hearing about Nicola’s jewellery – all family heirlooms – was a real treat.

Today it’s time for the wedding reception, and I’ll leave you with part two of Nicola’s wedding story to enjoy!

Bertie and I had some photographs on our own in a field opposite the church – for which I clambered over a style – before joining everyone else.

Oh, to be a henna artist. Working on Indian weddings would be a dream come true for me. Those fascinating, intricate swirls and squiggles of henna on a bride’s hands always make me shiver in delight. It’s my dream job.

My other dream job is to be a photographer at an Indian wedding. And yet happily I can live through my blog and enjoy all that fabulous colour, sparkle and excitement through the eyes and lens of the lovely Katy Lunsford. Isn’t life brilliant?!

Today I’m sharing Abi and Ajay’s wedding with you. They were married in May last year, at Chadderton Town Hall. Their wedding celebrated family and friends, with traditions taking centre stage throughout the celebrations. The wedding photographs take us from a few days before the wedding with the henna application, through the ceremony and some fabulous portraits of Abi and Ajay at the end of their day.

I hope you love these as much as I do!
