Sometimes I feel incredibly spoilt… I’m treated to the most amazing, ridiculously gorgeous real weddings and photography imaginable and I get to spend my days sharing them with you. Today is no exception, and I have another favourite wedding of the year – already – to show you. Grab a coffee and settle down for this one, it’s exquisite.

Botanical Gardens and Chimney House Sheffield UK wedding by Tierney Photography (27)

Colette and Scott were married at Sheffield Botanical Gardens. It’s one of those venues which is unique and so full of history: a Grade II listed pavilion and incredible place to be married. Their reception is just as impressive: Sheffield’s industrial Chimney House… which I’ll leave you to discover through the glorious images below.

Colette is knock-me-down-with-a-feather beautiful – a super sophisticated bride in a timelessly elegant gown. Scott’s her perfect match and there are such lovely images of them both here today – which brings me to their awesome photographer Mark Tierney. Mark is based in Sheffield and you can check out more weddings by Tierney Photography and get in touch at:

I’m totally lost for where to start with today’s gorgeous theatre wedding… there’s so much to show you and so many things I’d like to say I LOVE…

Yorkshire wedding Lyceum theatre and crucible with Tierney Photography (14)

Lara and Andrew got married in Sheffield on a bit of a venue-hopping-spree complete with vintage bus. Their images from the Lyceum theatre bowled me over, and then I saw the Crucible photos, and pics of the bus, and well… I was hooked.

Lara is that knock-me-down-with-a-feather kind of beautiful and Andrew just looks super handsome. Their colours are inspiring for a winter wedding: bright yellows and blues give the kind of colour pop which really makes a contemporary wedding.

Despite the odd hailstone in August, I think we had a pretty good summer this year. I’ve seen some wonderfully sunny weddings and I’m sure there’ll be plenty more to show with you through September and October! For today though, I have been thinking about grooms and suits: because isn’t it a bit hot wearing a shirt, waistcoat, jacket and tie for a summer wedding? There’s a lot to say for creative groomswear: personally I love a groom in jeans, shirt and no jacket… but that’s not for everyone. Most couples love the idea of dressing up in full wedding gear, waistcoats, pocket watches and all… so I asked Hayley from A Suit That Fits for some practical summer groomswear advice.

What could be more lovely than a beautiful sunny day in May, an eighteenth century country house hotel and a gorgeous wedding inspired by Pinterest and wedding blogs? Clare and Andrew have written a wonderful wedding report to share with us all and I’m so pleased and proud to have their big day on the English Wedding Blog.

Cubley Hall is a charming Yorkshire wedding venue with period features set in the rolling hills – where Andrew and Clare escaped for a few quiet moments to have some of the loveliest portrait photos I’ve seen. They chose Mark Tierney (Tierney Photography) to capture their wedding and told me he was brilliant, which is always fantastic to hear.

Jayne and Glen’s wedding is full of English country charm, and its setting in the impressive tithe barn at Browsholme Hall in Lancashire is wonderful. The gorgeous couple poured their hearts and souls into crafting a beautifully homespun theme with stamps, kraft cards and hessian string – and the overall effect is fantastic.

The wedding flowers are a highlight – with help from a local farm selling buckets of flowers for DIY brides, Jayne’s friend Alison styled the beautiful bridal and bridesmaid bouquets to perfectly fit the style of their day.

Morning everyone! Are you having a lovely morning so far? I just love today’s wedding – however your day is going, this will put a smile on your face. Melissa and Richard had a handmade / vintage wedding at Hodsock Priory and it is simply gorgeous!

Vintage wedding at Hodsock Priory by Tierney Photography (1)

Melissa looks amazing in her Benjamin Roberts dress, Richard is rocking a suit from Next (only about a million miles better than Moss Bros, by the way!) and special credit goes to Melissa’s mum for all the handmade touches from bunting to fabric hearts and pocket squares – she even crafted the wedding invitations!

Little details include gourmet popcorn (I can almost taste it! And as I type it’s barely past breakfast time… not a good sign!), lovebirds on the cake and gorgeous gypsophila – my favourite. Huge thanks to Tierney Photography for the beautiful images – watch out for the portrait shots with snowflakes and stunning images of Hodsock Priory. Congratulations Melissa and Richard, and to every one of you lovely readers – enjoy! Claire xxx

2013 has been a big year for theatre and cinema weddings, usually with an art deco or vintage style. Hannah and Steve’s wedding uses Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery as an incredibly beautiful backdrop for their ceremony. Their reception was at the amazing contemporary theatre, The Crucible. Choosing a venue like this will pretty much define your wedding style. There’s no room for vintage fluff, instead today’s beautiful bride and gorgeous groom used trees, simple flower arrangements and elegant lines to style their wedding.

Steve designed all of their wedding stationery, and music choices for the ceremony included The XX, Bon Iver and a reading from Pulp’s “Something Changed” – because naturally this wedding had a subtle Sheffield theme.

It’s just divine – I know you’ll love this wedding blog as much as I do. Images are by wonderful Mark from Tierney Photography, and Hannah and Steve have shared their wedding report with us all at the end of the page. Huge congratulations to a stunning and stylish bride and groom, and thank you so much for sharing your wedding day on the blog!

As a huge lover of music this wedding has instantly leapt into my top ten of all time! Vic and Chris describe their wedding to me as “A mix of loves and eras – mainly focused around our mutual love of music” – which ticks all of my boxes!

They’re an amazing couple with the coolest taste in tunes and as I write this blog post I’m listening to every single song they’ve mentioned – there’ll be links below if you’d like to have a listen as well: as far as musical wedding inspiration goes, this is definitely the best I’ve blogged so far – bar none!

Hi there! Another real wedding for you to enjoy this morning – and I’m going to jump straight in as Kelly and Ian’s big day needs no introduction. The images of their day are beautiful, and Kelly’s shared a fantastic wedding report which you’ll see towards the end of the blog post (it’s about three-quarters of the way down the page).

It warms my heart to read about Kelly’s favourite wedding day moments. After talking about the incredible effort her dad made to prepare an amazing speech, she says,

I loved watching all of our friends and family enjoying themselves. You really can’t put a price on creating those memories.

The gorgeous wedding photographs are all by Yorkshire wedding photographer Mark Tierney, of Tierney Photography. Please leave a comment at the end of the blog post if you can – I’d love to hear from you and I know Kelly and Ian will too! Enjoy. Claire xxx
