Let’s fill our Friday with a real wedding – and a blast of colour, fun, love and joy with our gorgeous couple Lauren & Lewis. These two chose Thornton Manor’s Lakeside Marquee to celebrate their love, with elements of Chinese and Malaysian culture bringing the party to life! Images are by Jules Fortune Photography, who gets a glowing review from the happy couple.
With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

Months of searching online and recommendations, we wanted a natural vibe to our pictures with nothing too staged, and when we found Jules we knew she was exactly what we were looking for.

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

We absolutely adored working with Jules! We aren’t fans of staged photos and she managed to capture the whole day magically, from an entirely candid perspective. Jules got in and amongst us, without us really even noticing she was there. She made us feel relaxed and her warm and lovely personality made her a delight to have at our special day.


Today’s styled shoot features a cast of north west wedding superstars, creative talents I’ve admired since the beginning of the English Wedding Blog a whole 6 years ago. Kerry Baker‘s fabulous make up steals the show. Flowers by Red Floral are breathtaking. Jane at HF Couture‘s designer hair accessories are exquisite; the images by Teresa C Photography are out of this world. This is bridal style without compromise: a brave, striking and different look for those of you who don’t wear pastels. I LOVE this.

Not every bride dreams of a pretty pastel wedding. In the modern age of Pinterest and social media, we are seeing couples experiment more and more with texture and colour. One trend which is set to become very popular is the used of mixed metallics to dress the venue, creating a lavish, decadent and opulent style.


Rainbows – the closest thing to magic we get to see in our English skies. I’ve never lost that girlish excitement I feel when I see one. I’ll stop in my tracks and grin up at the sky every time – and I definitely believe rainbows are lucky omens! So what better inspiration for styling a wedding? Rainbows have it all: luck and happiness, colour and fun!

Today’s English Wedding Blog feature is all about love and rainbows. Lovely Laura from Perfect Choice Planning got in touch to share this amazing inspiration shoot with me and I was hooked instantly. The images are divine, it features one of my favourite wedding industry friends Beth from Cakes by Beth, and the brides in the shoot are a real life couple –  their images have an exquisite tingly quality you’ll love!
