Choosing a photo of the week this week was super hard: so many wedding photographers have been sharing their best bits from 2015, and the internet is blindingly beautiful as a result. But one shone through for its firm grounding in time and place: the blossom shows the season, the sign indicates location, and then the backdrop and gorgeous bride and groom.

Something tells me this setting will remain for years, decades even, and maybe it’s been there for years already, changing only with the seasons.

More of Steven Anthony Photography’s highlights of the year can be found on his blog here: http://stevenanthonyphotography.co.uk/east-london-portrait-photographer-blog/


I publish a wedding photo of the week every week on the English Wedding Blog.

I hear so many opinions about wedding blogs, ranging quite fascinatingly from good to bad to even worse. Blogs are powerful; they can make a wedding business (and in at least one instance, have had the occasion to break one). And their influence on brides and grooms, on wedding trends and even spending habits, is pretty strong.

It’s something I try really hard to be aware of. I try never to push ideas onto readers: styling a wedding and finding suppliers should be all about personal choice. I can share things I love, suggest suppliers I admire, but I’d never say you ‘need’ anything for your wedding which is really only optional.

I love wedding blogs.

I think they’re a harmless dose of pretty, a relaxing and enjoyable read with extra eye candy, and often feature superb advice from real couples alongside expert tips from the loveliest wedding suppliers. They’re a beautiful and helpful place to be!

Who missed storm Desmond last week? Oh, you lucky things! I heard some heartbreaking stories and in contrast some really uplifting tales of heroes in floods (Gareth from Aqua Salon – I’m talking about you!) – and one fabulous story of a wedding which came together against all the odds. This week I’ve been thinking about rain on your wedding day. I know a lot of brides really worry: equally I see some incredibly beautiful images on my Facebook feed (and there were LOTS last weekend!) – so I wanted to share some tips to reassure you all. I asked my recommended suppliers and blog sponsors for their best advice.

Bristol wedding photographer Sandy at Love In Focus:

1. Plan for rain – just in case!

Everyone hopes for good weather on their wedding day but unfortunately there really is nothing you can do about the weather! The good news is that rain doesn’t have to spoil your day if you plan for it and can even make for some really beautiful shots. Don’t worry about your photographer, professional camera equipment is weather sealed and clothes dry!

Every once in a while I fall in love with a wedding I see on Facebook… it’s often just a sneak peek but it’s enough to get me hooked and I have to show you straight away. This is one of those times… and the location (because I know you’re all desperate to know!) is Shoreditch Studios, East London. All images are by lovely Steven Anthony Photography.

If there’s still time, try and visit your wedding venue a year before your big day. Explore the gardens, enjoy the flowers… take a few selfies in the beautiful grounds to look back upon. Today’s wedding has some of the most amazing images with beautiful blooms and the backdrop of a magnificent venue… I just think there would be something magical about exploring your venue with 12 months to go, and picturing yourselves there in the gardens with the same flowers – and your wedding dress.

If you have time, try it!

Yulia and Leigh married at gorgeous Ashridge House in Berkhamstead, a 19th century neo-gothic mansion with a history as a royal residence, a monastery and finishing school. The venue is magnificent and only hosts a limited number of weddings each year.

“I shoot in a relaxed and laid back documentary or reportage style so you can enjoy your day. I’m very lucky to do something I’m deeply passionate about, and for such great couples. I’m very fortunate that I get booked up early so if you’re planning your big day be sure to contact me, I’d love to hear all about it!

Karen and Dan’s wedding has that timeless elegance which really typefies an English wedding. They married in Hampshire in early autumn at the fabulous Tylney Hall, and styled their day with the palest and prettiest white and pink flowers and details.

Their wedding photographer was lovely Steven Anthony, who is based in London. Steven told me, “It was a beautiful day at Tylney Hall, Hampshire and I think it typified everything great about an English country wedding. White Rolls Royces, string quartet, a master of ceremonies and a beautiful bride in a Stewart Parvin dress.

Everything about today’s real wedding oozes classic British style, with such elegant decor in a beautiful country setting. I hope you love sharing their day!
