I have a little treat for you all this fine Sunday morning – one of the loveliest real weddings I’ve seen in a while, with touches of old Hollywood glamour and exquisite photography at  Norfolk’s magnificent Narborough Hall Gardens.

Laura is beautiful; a glamorous, graceful bride. Her perfect partner is Simon, every bit the movie hero to Laura’s romantic heroine. And they really do have it all: a fabulous wedding, superbly styled with love and laughter in every one of their beautiful images. My personal highlight? Laura’s advice to think back to other weddings and decide from there what’s most important; also, to keep an open mind when you go dress shopping. Believe it or not, this stunning Sassi Holford dress wasn’t the kind of style Laura had in mind at first!

Hey everyone! I have the loveliest English wedding to share with you today – classically beautiful but with wonderful modern touches you’ll adore, I promise! Gemma and Niall had a church wedding followed by a garden reception at Niall’s parents’ Yorkshire home.

There are so many wonderful details: the flowers are a highlight, and are by the fabulous Susie at Hart Company. Gemma is stunning in a Lusan Mandongus gown, and Niall looks amazing in a Saville Row bespoke suit.

Jonny and Amelia make the most adorable couple! Their Dorset wedding looks beautiful; and they tell a story of a beautiful celebration filled with love and laughter. I’m over the moon to be sharing their wedding on the blog today. The overall style is country chic, with wonderful details from flowers to corn dollies. Watch out for the lovely milk churns in the wedding marquee – they’re brilliant! My favourite touch has to be Amelia’s Dad’s surprise… but you’ll have to read on to find out more!

Images are by the very lovely Tom Redman, and at the end of the blog today you’ll find Amelia and Jonny’s wedding report and list of recommended wedding suppliers. I hope you love this wonderfully sunny, warm and charming wedding as much as I do! I almost feel as though I was there… it’s just fabulous. And isn’t Amelia stunning? Enjoy! Claire xxx
