So looking forward to weddings beginning again! The early part of the day is one of my favourites, starting with the bridal preparations, the dress, the details, the flowers arriving & the building emotions – excitement, nerves, pride, friendship… bring it on!

Rainy wedding days are always fun! The plans might change a little but the mood never seems to, if anything it adds to the fun, so if you’re planning a wedding in England whilst you can’t count on the weather you definitely don’t need to worry about it.

Neither the Corona virus nor the pouring rain could spoil this happy wedding at the Alexandra Hotel in Lyme Regis, the candlelit chapel is so cozy & the sea view so spectacular. Great cake by Claire Makes Cakes & flowers by House of Flowers. For more photos of seaside weddings check out the real wedding section of my site.

Another small but lovely Autumnal wedding with Sian & Jake in Taunton, Somerset. A simple ceremony at the Taunton Registry Office then to the garden at The Castle Hotel for fun with the family & dogs, a beautiful walk in the park then back for tea. Fabulous cake by Little Buttercup Cakery, flowers by Tilda Rose & dress by WED2B in Bristol. Congratulations guys, I wish you all the best!

This charming 1940’s styled wedding at Summer Lodge Coutry House Hotel in Evershot, Dorset https://www.summerlodgehotel.co.uk/ was a real joy! The bride & groom looked amazing in their original outfits, exquisite down to the smallest detail & it was the perfect location for such an intimate & relaxed occasion. Congratulations to you both, it was such a pleasure!

As 2020 has been a stressful & disappointing year for so many prospective brides & grooms, & with the majority of my clients forced to postpone their weddings amidst ever changing restrictions, I chose not to post pictures of past happy couples, parties & family fun & took an online break instead!

But now the season is behind us & we’re starting to look towards next year, I can definitely see some positives to what we’ve just been through, namely, the upside of cut back, intimate weddings. For those couples that did go ahead, some with only witnesses & children in attendance, the scale & intimacy of the occasion took away all the stress & freed up loads of time for romance!

This fabulous wedding in the Marshwood Vale, West Dorset, was the perfect example. Imagine walking through the fields of your farm with your new bride, September sunshine, a cool breeze, views down to the sea… surely the ultimate romantic wedding day?

Great to be back at Powderham Castle last week for their annual wedding fair – if you haven’t chosen your venue yet go check it out, it’s truly fabulous! The rooms are magnificent as are the grounds with Belvedere, lake, deer, roses, woodland… & the staff are so professional & friendly. Definitely 5 stars in my book!

The wedding breakfast is such a big part of the wedding day & often the room & the table settings can play a big part in setting the festive scene. Some of the country house venues & hotels in the South West have beautiful dining rooms like these, but equally a well dressed marquee can look stunning!
