There’s a saying I’d never heard before! If you’re worried about rain on your wedding day, it’s one to remember. Pips and Ian were married back in May, and you might say they were unlucky with the weather… but seeing their wedding photos I don’t think it matters for a second.

Imagine you have everything set up for your big day: the marquee is beautifully decorated, and instead of heading outside to smoke or play giant Jenga, all of your guests are together inside. It’s what makes a wedding so special, isn’t it? Everyone you love together in the same room to celebrate with you? It certainly was a special day for Pips and Ian, and their wedding looks like a wonderful day – umbrellas included!


I love these two. Helen and Dan – a bride and groom so gorgeous and full of personality you’ll wish you’d been there on the day. Their wedding had lots of lovely yellow details: a rose bouquet in two shades; beautiful bridesmaid dresses and a fabulous cake. Bailbrook House is magnificent: a Grade II* listed country house hotel located just a few minutes from the centre of historic Bath.

Helen is such a stunning bride, wearing a pearl- and sparkle-embellished dress with the loveliest waistband. Her hair piece is divine; her glasses stylish and sassy. Dan wears a great tweed suit – as their wedding photographer (the lovely Simon Biffen) says: “Dan cut a fine figure in one of the sharpest tweed suits I’ve ever seen.”


Jon and Claire were married in May, at a Derbyshire wedding venue I’ve never featured before – the lovely Newton House, set in a rural location not far from Burton upon Trent. The barn where Jon and Claire held their reception is wonderful – a blank canvas for a rustic or vintage wedding, which today’s bride and groom decorated to great effect!

Hello lovely wedding blog readers! I have a bonus post for you this afternoon with some fabulous images by the lovely Simon Biffen Photography. Lucy and Rob were married at Maunsel House in Somerset, with a ceremony in the grand ballroom and later (after the rain stopped!) a stroll around the glorious grounds.
