I LOVE a local wedding! Living on the edge of the Lake District is a dream. We’re there every weekend exploring the mountains (and valleys, right now!) and the landscape never fails to take my breath away. Needless to say, it’s my favourite place for weddings and so sharing Jen & Alex’s day with you today is soooo exciting! Most of all I love their day for its relaxed and elegant vibe. Beautiful bride Jen’s dress is non-traditional…. stunningly slinky with a daring thigh split and incredible back detail, it’s by Atelier Pronovias. Alex looks fantastic in chinos and a classic white shirt (because suits are NOT a rule…. or if they are, they’re the first rule to break! I love this look!) The gorgeous couple chose a few of my favourite suppliers for their day: lovely Helen Jane Smiddy was their photographer; Kevin from Brackens of Bowness (“the unofficial god of flowers”) provided their amazing florals, and talented Charlotte of Sugar Ruffles designed their gorgeous wedding cake.

Do you love where you live? Do you have a favourite place where you can disappear and just sink yourself into a feeling of how beautiful the world is? I’m lucky: there are so many spots around my home on the edge of the Lakes, and it’s wonderful to see amazing photographers appreciating just how stunning this place is. Wedding photographer Jo Bradbury just took the place I love to a whole new level...

Coastal wedding shoot English Wedding Blog with Jo Bradbury Photography (29)

The striking seashore at Rampside on the edge of The Lake District was the inspiration behind this coastal styled shoot. With its quirky Victorian lighthouse, rusting fishing boats and grey green seagrass the shoreline made a perfect backdrop for a romantic and elegant sea themed bridal look.
