Today’s real wedding features a stunning short-haired brunette, the lovely Charlie, who wears a bird cage veil and Paloma Blanca wedding dress. The stationery is all home made, and yet this wedding at Shrigley Hall in Cheshire looks wonderfully elegant and stylish – you will LOVE it!!

When Charlie first got in touch with me I was so excited – her photos are just stunning, as is she – and just as excitingly her wedding photographer is the lovely Jonny Draper. I’ve featured Jonny’s work on the English Wedding Blog lots of times (more here: http://english-wedding.com/tag/jonny-draper-photography), and I have the biggest admiration for how he works: Jonny’s built his wedding photography business on friendship. Seriously – if you’re getting married in the north west then you need to meet with Jonny for a chat and you’ll see what I mean! Charlie and Dan describe him as ‘incredible‘ – what more do you need to know?!

Happy weekend everybody! I hope you have a lovely day planned – I do… I’m going to a wedding this afternoon and can’t wait! To make today even more exciting I have one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen to share with you all today. I’ve been waiting to share this one and I know you’ll love it too! It’s all about bright and fabulous colours, and beautiful design. About time we had another sunflowers wedding blog as well, isn’t it?!

The very lovely Kate got in touch with me a few weeks back to tell me about her wedding day. She told me, “We got married on 29th June and having read your blog everyday in the run up I would really like to feature on your site… We got married at iconic, art deco hotel The Midland in Morecambe and made the day as personal as possible.” I also got to have a peek at Kate and John’s wedding website – a key part of their day, which I think is fab! and when John’s wedding reading brought tears to my eyes I knew I had to share their sunsets and sunflowers wedding blog with you all.
