Today’s wedding is short n sweet, with the most stunning details – truly, the images speak for themselves and capture the love and joy from this romantic, emotional Beeston Manor wedding. Aimee & Dan are just stunning – you can feel the nervous excitement and the joy as their day unfolds – it’s magical. Images are by Lancashire wedding photographer and English Wedding member Phil Salisbury, whose favourite venues include Beeston Manor and Eaves Hall in Clitheroe.

How did you choose your photographer?

I was actually looking at all the wedding pictures on my wedding venue (beeston manor’s) Instagram page and there were a certain few that kept catching my eye and Phil was the photographer in them all. So I then searched all his work.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

My wedding pictures were so good I was really happy with them all. The quality was amazing and there so special to me.

Morning lovelies! Today’s wedding is cute as can be with little wedding place settings made of Lego and a gorgeous bride and groom! Jenny and Chris were married at Fairyhill in South Wales and they were the lucky winners of Hannah Timm‘s ‘win your wedding photography’ competition! Hannah told me these two were such a lovely, creative couple it was a joy to be part of their celebrations.

This venue is simply stunning, filled with colour and creative touches: the whole place is so cosy and atmospheric with twinkling lights and fabulous lighting (we’re loving the neon!)

Alex and Anneka are the coolest! They chose East Quay Whitstable as their venue and focused their wedding planning on food, alcohol and music… because “these are the main things that make a great wedding and that your guests will remember!” It’s a brilliant June wedding with a neutral palette and simple, elegant styling touches and florals. We’ve featured East Quay weddings on the blog before now, and it’s a venue which always has that boho beach drifter, cool and quirky vibe. It’s definitely a favourite for English Wedding, and I just know you’ll adore Alex & Anneka’s day!

And now – we’re joining gorgeous Penny & Ben for a trip to the funfair! What a wonderful way to brighten all of our Mondays 🙂 and with such happy and vibrant photography from Sally Rose Wedding Photography, we’re in for a joyful ride!

“Marleybrook House is already beautifully styled which really appealed to us. Once we added flowers and balloons we really needed little else. It was important for us not to have to spend lots of time preparing the venue so we could spend time with family and friends who had travelled to Kent for the wedding. We left most of the hard work to our trusty suppliers and Tanith our lovely wedding planner at Marleybrook House.

Good morning, lovely! Today’s wedding is another stunner – this time we’re at Lemore Manor in Herefordshire with beautiful Alex and Ben, whose wedding was submitted by lovely Sophie Ann Photography. I love the soft blue of the bridesmaids’ dresses (eBay, can you believe?!) and Alex just looks incredible in her figure-hugging dress from Wed2B. The summer flowers are magical, and the spirit of the day is enchanting as can be!

Lemore manor’s reception room has marble flooring, which in itself is to die for, but when you add in the details they added when decorating, it really came together. The chair fabrics were super elegant, the cake was incredibly done and the florals, including all the bouquets, were totally Pinterest worthy.

Alex and Ben are also the nicest pair of people you will meet and truly cared about photography. It was an emotional wedding with lots of tears from walking down the aisle to the speeches, all happy of course. It was just a lovely group of people at a stunning Hereford venue on a gorgeous summer day – a pleasure to photograph! ~ Sophie Ann Photography

It’s been wonderful revisiting some of the beautiful weddings we featured on English Wedding through 2019 – I hope you’ve enjoyed them too! Today’s is an absolute BEAUTY!! The flowers are out of this world, nestling amongst glass jars and candles to create a wonderfully romantic, English country garden look from daytime to dusk.

She’s glorious in Anna Sorrano’s Laurel gown from Wed2B, and he’s so handsome in a micro check navy suit from ASOS. The best thing?

Ever. – and you can just tell they’re SO much in love the photos are a kind of magic.

As we come to the end of Christmas week, I’m loving the chance to revisit some of our favourite features from 2019. Lizzie & Faz’s wedding was an absolute highlight for me: their story is magical (and their double-act filling in our English Wedding interview makes me HAPPY!) their wedding is glorious and I just ADORE the beautiful golden hour photographs by wonderful Grace Elizabeth. Here are my highlights from their wedding at Fennes. To see the full feature, click here: Lizzie & Faz’s wedding

“Our wedding was relaxed and inclusive: a fusion with Pakistani and English elements. Our colour palette was green and gold; we wanted a natural greenery feel and something that would blend with the Asian wedding vibe for the second ceremony too.

We went with ‘Dress it Yourself‘ for almost all of our decor and they were incredible for helping us to plan out our vision for the wedding! They do a diy service or they will also do set up which is what we went for. We went to their workshop and met with them to design the plans, they helped us so much to clarify everything and to make sure we were really focused on what we wanted.”

Today is just the most amazing treat for me. Not only am I setting off on a Big Adventure later on (it’ll be on my insta in a few days I’m sure!) but I have this STUNNING wedding to share with you before I go. It’s everything: it’s pure love, it’s magical photography, it’s beautiful, dazzling and different. And I’ve been SO excited to share Lizzie and Faz’s Fennes wedding with you lovely lot!

If you don’t already follow Grace Elizabeth on instagram, please do. She’s one of my favourite UK wedding photographers and happens to be an English Wedding member as well (‘scuse me while I break off for a little happy dance in the corner! Woohoo!) – and her words are inspiring, heartfelt and as wonderful as her images… which brings me to today’s amazing couple Lizzie and Faz, and their brilliant wedding planning story and supplier reviews and recommendations.

Sometimes I see a wedding and it looks the most fun a couple has ever had in their lives. Sometimes the joy and excitement spills through in every beautiful detail, and I spend ages just gazing at all the gorgeous photos to see little details and love and laughter and grinning back at my screen. Mike and Kelly are one of those amazing couples you can just see loved every moment of their best day ever, and I’m so happy they chose our fabulous friend and exceptional documentary wedding photographer Linus Moran to capture their wedding.

This truly is a wedding with everything: a boat covered in flowers, glorious sunshine and face glitter. A stunning bride beaming with joy, and her groom glowing with pride and happiness. The emotion of the day is pure magic – the love between this amazing couple is just magical to see.

As I write, the sunshine is peeking through the clouds up here in Cumbria, and the autumn leaves are glowing with fiery colours – it truly is a beautiful time of the year! Today’s couple Sophie and Chris chose to be married in the autumn, and used the most incredible florals to capture the magic of this time of year. Their images are by Kent wedding photographer Terence Joseph Photography, who I’m delighted to say is one of our newest English Wedding members.

The gorgeous pair were married at The Archbishop’s Palace, Maidstone and went on to The Weald of Kent Golf Club and Hotel at Headcorn – despite missing their OWN wedding bus as it left for the venue! They laughed and took it in their stride, grabbing the opportunity to have a couple of extra portraits taken with Terence as they waited for their bus to come back!

Before I say anything else, I just have to start with Stacey’s DRESS today – because WOW!!! She looks incredible in a Stella York gown from Bicester Bridal. This is a dreamy outdoor wedding in Oxfordshire, with gorgeous May sunshine (and the sunset is stunning!) and a soft colour palette of blush with accents in powder blue and gentle peach. The flowers are wonderful, the vibe is elegant, fun and romantic and the images by Benjamin Wetherall Photography take my breath away. You’ll love this.
