Morning lovely! Do you have sunshine? I hope so – it’s beautiful here and I’m so tempted to hit the beach for an impromptu lunch picnic right now! Before I do though – something really rather beautiful is about to wriggle its way up your screen and into your heart! Stunning couple Rachael and James were married at Owen House Wedding Barn in Cheshire and their rustic country wedding is full of the loveliest moments and details… I mean, this adorable bunch of humans just make the BEST group shots I’ve seen in a LONG while!

How did you choose your photographer?

We chose Tony after meeting him at the Tatton Park Wedding Fair – we loved his relaxed style, friendly personality and amazing pictures.

Delbury Hall is one of Shropshire’s loveliest wedding venues. With a country house, a lake with swans and ducks swimming about and beautiful gardens it is the perfect place for a wedding. Beautiful bride Siân and her gorgeous groom Edward were married there in the summer and chose Tony Fanning to capture their day. It’s perfect… and I have to say I love their wedding hashtag and the beautifully realised shed to go with it! Siân – Edward… get it?!

“When you plan a wedding for the first time, you discover so many suppliers in the local area that you didn’t know existed! We always asked suppliers for recommendations of others they had worked with before, with the idea that they would have a good knowledge of who was reliable in the local area. With seven months to plan the wedding, we did find that some suppliers we tried were booked up for our date, but they were always happy to recommend someone else and we didn’t struggle at all.

Elinor – beautiful, stunning bride and super stylish lady! – told me she never wanted her wedding day to end. She married Nick at lovely Hendre Hall a few weeks ago, and I’m so thrilled to be able to share their day with you lovely blog readers today.

Friends and family “ambushed” Elinor’s plans for dressing the venue the day before the wedding… and did the most amazing job turning a blank canvas into a really exciting and pretty space which Elinor and Nick really loved. How sweet is that?!

Their day was relaxed with a touch of rustic charm and a focus on fabulous food with an amazing party atmosphere. I love how Nick and Elinor keep smiling all day long… they make my wedding blog look fantastic! 🙂

Ian and Rose used family heirloom fabrics as one of the key themes of their wedding at Manchester Art Gallery. I love their wedding all the more for those really personal touches: today’s bride and groom use their family history as inspiration, and it’s amazing.

Rose looks incredible. Her dress and accessories are divine – a little Gatsby inspired, with 1920s touches. Ian’s suit has its own story, which I love. This is a wedding I know you’ll adore…
