Morning everyone! I hope you like the changes I’ve made to my blog header and colours this week – a redesign was long overdue! And while I’m in introspective ‘wedding blogger’ mode it strikes me that wedding bloggers have a big responsibility to all of those we feature – to the brides and grooms whose weddings we share, to photographers and suppliers, and to our readers.

But it’s an incredibly delicate balancing act to get it right for everyone.

Balancing a wedding blog – getting it right for brides and grooms, photographers and readers

I love the real weddings I feature on the blog, and it’s a real privilege for me to be able to share such a personal event as a wedding. For every bride and groom I feature on the blog I try and make sure I show the best bits of their day. I’ll focus on how beautiful the bride looks in her dress, how their love shines out on the photos – and of course try and share as many of the details of the day as I can. After all, couples and their families spend countless hours and days crafting everything from bunting to cakes, stationery and flowers. The least I can do is share all of their hard work with my readers.

I’ve been having a lovely email chat with Northamptonshire wedding photographer Aaron Collett since May, when he got in touch to share Hannah and Nathaniel’s fabulously colourful wedding on English Wedding Blog. Two days before the wedding took place, Aaron had already emailed to tell me, “They get married this Saturday and I think its going to be awesome…” – it really, really was!

This enthusiasm and passion for photographing weddings really strikes me with Aaron Collett. Reading how he describes his work on the English Wedding Showcase, his love of photographing weddings is inspiring. He talks of images which you’ll cherish for a lifetime, and says, “I always regard it as a great privilege to photograph a wedding, one of the most important days in anyone’s life”.

It’s the sign of a very genuine and compassionate man that Aaron talks about your wedding so much: while he’s a skilled and talented wedding photographer, his focus is – as it should be – on his brides and grooms.

Happy Friday afternoon, everyone! We had a little break from wedding planning or work last week (as my head is all over the place with my house move!) so I assume you worked through the afternoon without a break last week. Which means, I think, that your boss should let you have the rest of the afternoon off. I wouldn’t even bother checking… just drop your pen, and enjoy some of these gorgeous real weddings, and wedding blog posts from the last week or two!
