How was your long weekend? I had plans to have a leisurely working day yesterday which turned out to be more about walking on the beach than blogging! But it’s almost my birthday and I’m of a mind to take things easy this week… especially while the sun is beaming down on the beautiful Lake District where I live. We have blogging plans afoot (check out the new shop and Directory) – and I know my inbox is yelling at me – but I wanted to share a special offer for any of you lovely creative wedding suppliers out there.

The English Wedding Blog is all about matchmaking amazing suppliers with brides and grooms.


Hello! A quick update as I’ve uploaded a brand new media pack to the blog this week. If you’re a wedding business owner it’s free to read and easy to download – all the information on blog sponsorship is here for you to see.

media packI’m really delighted to see visits to the blog have shot up again this week – it’s fantastic to know that brides and grooms are reading the blog in their thousands… and the blog is attracting around 60% more readers than at the same time last year already!

So it’s a great time to be a wedding blogger, and the perfect time to join English Wedding Blog as a sponsor. If you’d like to be involved, email me: info@english-wedding.com

Yolande’s background is in fashion photography and photojournalism, and her wedding photography style is feminine and exciting – it’s a real pleasure to welcome Yolande to English Wedding blog.


I was thrilled to feature a bridal inspiration shoot by Yolande on English Wedding blog in 2011 – set in what appeared to be an enchanted forest, the shoot was inspiring, exciting, striking and deliciously different. I’ve followed Yolande’s photography blog ever since!

I’m really looking forward to getting to know Yolande a little better and to sharing her wedding photography with you via the English Wedding Showcase blog. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming her to English Wedding!
