Hi everyone! Hurray, it’s the weekend at last. I’m currently on a Christmas shopping binge – wish me luck! I’m hoping to beat the crowds and spend the rest of November and December munching happily on mince pies knowing it’s all done. In the meantime, I have some brilliant wedding blog features to share with you. As always, do share your own favourite picks if you think I’ve missed something!

I’m looking for more of the best wedding blogs to follow – so if you have one, know one or love one would you let me know where to find it? Meanwhile… here are my picks from the last week and a bit. One of my favourites is in French, but you can translate it in Google (somehow!) – it’s worth it, fab opinions on wedding tv!

The best real wedding blogs

  • A Stoneleigh Abbey wedding – classically beautiful photography, a gorgeous couple and some great wedding craft ideas. Recommended for dozens of reasons including photography by one of my favourite Cheshire wedding photographers. What a glorious wedding venue for starters…
  • Simone and Sean’s beautiful destination wedding in France… beautiful images, a tangible atmosphere and the romance of the French countryside. Love this! from 100 Layer Cake
  • While we’re in Europe… the grace of this Italian wedding is second-to-none, with photography by the marvellous Ed Peers. I’m a big fan!

Welcome to a bumper edition of what used to be ‘Wedding Planning or Work’. I’ve renamed my regular Friday afternoon feature to Best wedding blogs – or something that really does what it says on the tin. I’ll still be encouraging all of you lovely couples and wedding suppliers to spend the rest of the day soaking up wedding ideas from around the web though – and today I have a bit of a bumper selection for you!

Whether you’ve had a glorious week full of sunshine and are itching to go out and play, or have spent the last few days at the drizzly Cumbrian seaside like me, I think it’s time to sit back and enjoy a bit of wedding goodness. Forget work – it’s time to catch up with the very best from wedding blogs over the last week-and-a-bit!

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!
