Beautiful bride Siobhan and gorgeous groom Ross got married in the springtime, and were blessed with a beautifully sunny day. I fell in love with Siobhan’s bouquet of ranunculus, freesia and eucalyptus with tiny narcissus and eucalyptus – it’s perfect for springtime and every bit as gorgeous as a summer bouquet.

Orchardleigh House is a stunning venue in North Somerset with fabulous, lavish rooms, the perfect venue for a romantic English wedding. Driving into the estate and along the winding driveway to the main house there’s a real wow moment that gives you a feeling of excited anticipation.

Today’s real wedding is romantic, feminine and oh so pretty – the kind of wedding so many girls dream of, brought to life with a wonderfully elegant style. Beautiful bride Amy’s dress is divine – I adore the palest pink hue which works beautifully with the bridesmaids’ soft grey dresses. Words and images are by our lovely sponsor, Somerset wedding photographer Sandy at Love In Focus.

Getting to shoot any Somerset wedding photography on a bright and sunny day is one of the many upsides of my job – so getting to photograph a wedding at Aldwick Court Farm on a bright and sunny day is just about as good as this job gets! Amy and Ben chose the perfect venue for their spring wedding.

Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.

Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”

I’m so happy and excited to be welcoming another brilliant wedding photographer to my little team of handpicked sponsors on the blog today. Last summer I featured a stunning Somerset wedding sent in by lovely Martin Dabek Photography – the images still take my breath away today! It was the first of many weddings I’m looking forward to sharing on the English Wedding Blog, with Martin’s help, over the coming months.
