Cricket, Jazz and Tipis In The Country.


Ella and Liam’s big day puts the bohemian into ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’…hell it puts the ‘Rhapsody’ in to boot when you see how harmoniously every single detail combines together to make up this glorious wedding.

There are pretty bouquets and delicately clad maids with deliciously pink shoes along with an elegant floral crown nestled on Ella’s mane of curls. Hay bales and tipis and a totally rad mobile bar all helped to keep guests fed, watered and completely blissed out and a game of cricket ensured that groom Liam was on cloud nine.

There’s also some really beautiful portrait shots in this morning’s wedding, amongst the trees and leaves which I’m especially entranced by…just like Liam so clearly is by his new wife Ella.

Romance And Black Tie In Calabria.


This afternoon we’re off to Italy to indulge in Emma and Philipp’s luxurious black tie affair in Calabria courtesy of David Jenkins Photography. If you’re a fan of the classically elegant wedding then this one is for you…the same applies if you’re a bit of a fan of Italy as there’s some fairly stunning shots of the coast in the gallery at the end.

Emma’s beautiful Suzanne Neville frock looks as if it has been made for her, all structured corset and swooshy train…the perfect accompaniment to the tuxedo clad boys and the gorgeous all-white floral arrangements.

Somehow during the heat of Summer everyone looks deliciously fresh and smart and ready to kick some wedding ass. Awesome!

Ellen & Tom


A beautiful day at the victorian winter garden hall in Hexham. Ellen choose Cornflowers in remeberance of her late grandmother and the decorations flowed from there. Beautiful wild flower arrangements everywhere and lots of fun and games, aeroplane kits, lawn games and a caleidh. Ellen carried an authentic vintage purse bought by her mother decades ago and beautiful sparkly pumps.

Ruth & James


If you were to have a wedding in the Spring and there was to be a carpet of fallen blossom on the ground you would absolutely have to make the most of it wouldn’t you? Ruth and James certainly did, the most beautiful nature-made backdrop for show-stopping portraits.

Grey and pink is one of my all time favourite colour combinations and this pair have used the hues so well, Ruth’s best girls look particularly luscious in their mis-match pale blush frockage. Did I mention the flowers? Just lovely. And Ruth’s lace gown? Equally perfect.

On A Distant Cornish Clifftop.


Anna and John married in the beautiful county of Cornwall, at the very distant end of the country, over looking the mighty Atlantic ocean, surrounded by close family and friends – the perfect wedding by my books.

I love how intimate and relaxed the whole affair seems to be, it’s more like a house party from a bygone era when City folk would escape to their country retreats for a weekend of debauchery. Except it’s wholesome and wonderful and there’s a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony.

Anna hunted down a sample of her dream Sassi Holford gown as she simply couldn’t justify spending the money on herself, when her and John had prioritised lots of other things for their big day. The lovely team at Sassi Holford were really accommodating and Anna deserves to have found her dream dress within her budget because she worked so hard for it!!

Anna was lucky enough to have a headpiece made by the lovely Holly Young – I’ve visited her studio and seen her work in the flesh, it really is gorgeous.

A Chic City Wedding At The Bloomsbury Ballroom.

sarah tim

Simple yet chic is how I would describe Sarah and Tim’s elegant London wedding. And with a venue as beautiful as The Bloomsbury Ballroom – I can see exactly why the pair kept things low key decor wise.

White roses, giant round bubbles of gypsophila and candles were all it needed to make the venue look beautiful.

Sarah is a girl after my own heart with two gowns, as well as a simple gypsophila circlet for the reception. I love the addition of a grey sash on her gown too, it compliments her lovely grey suede Emmy shoes perfectly.

I also love the amount of stunning couple shots that Eddie Judd has captured – Sarah and Tim are clearly a couple who make each other laugh, their love and chemistry really shines in these images, as you’ll see.

Sunshine Yellow After The Winter.


It’s been far too long since we shared a sunshiny yellow Spring wedding with you but never fear Cheryl and Matt are here to save the day with their awesomely bright wedding this morning.

And it is AWESOME. Completely and utterly take-your-breath-away awesome. I for one LOVE it…can you tell?

Captured by the uber talented Mister Phill, this ‘I Do’ has inspiration by the bucketload for you. And before you disappear off to start your pinning marathon, I really need to share some of the best things about this wedding if that’s even possible.

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate Cheryl’s totally bargainous dress that she scored from eBay for the grand total of £39. She looks like a veritable real life Swan Lake prima ballerina flanked by beautiful girls in yellow and an exquisite Tulip and Daffodil bouquet (one of my favourites of 2014 I’ll have you know!)

And then there’s all the paper pretty (such brilliant branding) and the chocolate Easter inspired wedding cake (just genius) and the Musical Bingo. Yes ACTUAL musical bingo. I think I just died and went to heaven.

Well what are you waiting for? Go forth and admire the pretty…

A Rich Tapestry Of Italian Memories.


Natalie and Duncan are super stylish, I mean you can tell this is the case as soon as you start reading Natalie’s wonderful description of her wedding day below. And any man that accessorises a splendid navy Italian jacket with a crisp white shirt and a very strong gin and tonic for the woman in his life (as Duncan did when he first met Natalie) is a winner in my book.

And where would a super stylish couple such as this pair choose to host their big day, why in Italy of course, set against the backdrop of olive trees, deliciously fresh white linen and a sprinkling of lavender.

Heaven! Let’s take a look!

Lucy & Danny

We’ve already met Lucy & Danny once before… We featured their engagement shoot back in June this year, you can catch up on all the details here. So how do you follow such a romantic engagement (involving a serious amount of kissing underneath a Cherry blossom tree)?

Well… with this!

I Should Be So Lucky.


This is the ridiculously beautiful wedding of Nicola and Jack. You will more than likely recognise Nicola as she was one of our 2014 real brides – her writing style is aces, as is her taste in venues. The French Chateau setting is the stuff made of dreams, as are the white on white florals with a smidgen of glitter and twinkle.

This is timeless glamour at its very finest, soft feminine decor touches combined with a selection of sartorial triumphs. It’s probably a big no no to admit you are jealous of someone else’s wedding but I’m going to come right out and say it – I am.

Nicola’s report is LONG, there’s no denying it but it’s well worth a read folks, perhaps gawp at the lush imagery and then come back later for proper sit down?

I expect muchos pinning action to be occurring this morning, I know we will be!
