The details of the day are breathtaking. The peonies in those fabulous bouquets look good enough to eat! The hydrangea / delphinium / English country garden table arrangements are so, so pretty – perfect for an early summer wedding. And I LOVE the naked chocolate strawberry cake… it looks lush!


A few weeks ago I featured a beautifully elegant Surrey wedding on the blog – James and Katherine’s big day was simply wonderful and full of ideas.

You loved it too, and wedding photographer Karen Flower was a big hit! When Karen emailed me a week or two later to say she’d already had enquiries because of the Botley’s Mansion wedding feature I was delighted – and I’m even more pleased today because Karen has joined the English Wedding Blog team of sponsors.

You can read all about Karen on her dedicated page on the English Wedding Blog: Surrey wedding photographer Karen Flower, and there are some divine images on the page to show you a kind of cross section of her photography style. (She’s chosen gorgeous photos – beautiful lighting, love, laughter and happy tears – do have a look!)

Talk about a gorgeous wedding venue… Great Fosters is a grade I listed building in Surrey, an elegantly sprawling mansion house with a history of royal and prestigious guests and residents.

William and Joanne were married in spring, just as the early blossom was beginning to come out. It was the perfect complement for their pink wedding theme.

Sugar & Spice Photography is the ‘dream job’ of photographer Juliet McKee. She’s a UK wedding bloggers’ favourite and I love how she captures the romance of a wedding day from moment to sparkling moment.

Joanne’s dress was a Maggie Sottero, and her accessories were from Accessorize. I love these images – they capture the essence of the countryside wedding venue as well as the luxury of Joanne and William’s day.

Joanne’s bridesmaids wore bright and colourful fuchsia pink, with lovely calla lily and lily of the valley bouquets to match.
