Every time I scroll through the images from Holly & Adam’s Derbyshire wedding I fall in love with them all over again! This is truly beautiful: a wedding bursting with vintage glamour, with a wonderful focus on beautiful flowers and plenty of personal touches. Not forgetting those light up letters… I think I need some of these in my life!

Holly and Adam married at the Peak Edge Hotel in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Their wedding decor was inspired by Pinterest, created with the help of friends and family and made unique by Holly’s own style and creativity.

Happy weekend lovelies! I’m having a chilled out Saturday morning before I head into the Lake District later for a little adventure BUT before I go, I can’t resist sharing these sneak peeks of an awesome wedding by Shaun Taylor Photography. Laura and Scott had a unique and memorable wedding just bursting with personality from the bride’s gorgeous 1950s style dress and hairpiece to the groom’s delish polka dot bowtie and bridesmaid dresses…

There’s more to see on Shaun’s wedding photography blog and if you’re getting married in Derbyshire or nearby please do give him a call and have a good look at his wedding photography.


Weddings can sometimes be all the more beautiful for their simplicity and grace. One gorgeous couple; two guests; and all the love in the world – over to Shaun Taylor Photography for something truly magical. The images are lovely, but don’t skip over the words, everyone!

“Recently I photographed Sarah and Rob’s wedding in Bakewell, Derbyshire and I really wanted to share it with all of the English Wedding Blog readers.

The English Wedding blog is a great resource for inspiration on how you can personalise your wedding with DIY tips and sourcing super talented and highly unique suppliers and quite often, when photographing weddings I see all of this come to fruition.


Eeeek! Here’s an exciting wedding for you to see – it’s in a windmill! Tuxford windmill is the last working windmill in Nottinghamshire, and had never been used as a wedding venue before. Today’s fabulous, wonderful, amazing couple Rebecca and Sam wanted to do something new, and so they chose this awesome location for their reception.

They made the very most of the windmill for their wedding reception after getting married at East Markham parish church. After the church service, the happy couple hopped on the back of a tractor and headed for their windmill – I love saying that! – for the reception…


Did you see Sally and Richard’s stunning English countryside wedding on the blog back in November? I LOVED it. They married at Hassop Hall and their wedding photographer was the lovely Shaun Taylor.
