I wish I could stand here in front of you and introduce Emma and Paul’s wedding with a showmaster’s flourish. They deserve your full attention – and the images (by Shutterleaf Photography) of their Cumbria wedding day are more than amazing as well.

I honestly don’t know where to begin – the sunlight flooding through the windows of Broadoaks Country House Hotel near Coniston will take your breath away.

Let’s kick off with a few engagement photos though, simply because these are gorgeous! (And I miss sunshine!)

The launch of Love Bridal today is something for the wedding industry in the North West of England to really celebrate. While I’m now Norther and Wester than all of the photographers involved in the shoot, I’m still delighted that English Wedding Blog is playing a part in this launch: the way these guys work together is inspiring.
