Ullet Road Unitarian library ceremony and a Handyman Supermarket knees up afterwards

Given that all you need to do is sign that piece of paper, the rest of the wedding you can do whatever the heck you like. And for Ele + Simon that meant getting ready together, a black skirt and blue top, no cake, a tiny ceremony (the first) in the library at Ullet Road Unitarian Church in Liverpool, followed by dancing into the night, donuts and a whole parma ham at the Handyman Supermarket Brewery on Smithdown Road.

It's Oakwell Hall, it rained, but it just meant more indoor C17th portrait time! 🙌

Lucy and Paul, some of the loveliest people you are ever likely to meet. Rain seems to have been a theme of the last few wedding I've blogged, and once again; who cares. Oakwell Hall was built in 1583. It's Charlotte Bronte's "Fieldhead". Apparently it was even in that 2017 Gunpowder series which I only got to see vicariously via Gogglebox but that I am sure looked epic nevertheless. Who wouldn't want to be forced inside there by the weather?

A wonderful wet autumnal wedding at Nether Wichendon House in Buckinghamshire

Had such a great time hanging out with Kaz and Thom at Nether Wichendon that it really didn't matter about the rain. Particularly when the grounds and your couple look like these stunners. 

Weather chat: It's Britain, it rains, we're all used to it. And d'you know what, rain actually looks good.

Festival pagan wedding under an oak tree on High Billinghurst Farm in Surrey

In a field in Surrey a group of lovely people got together, set up a little camp of tents, a massive geo-dome and a nice pagan man married them under a tree. Plus there was a sage smoke cleansing and a stone circle. The sun shone all day, no one got stung by the hornets, and it ended on a full moon. (Plus the toilets would have qualified as #cabinporn on instagram).

Holdsworth House Yorkshire wedding on a beautifully wet, rainy autumn day. *Includes damp horses

It's kind of a cliche to imagine Yorkshire looking all moist and misty and atmospheric, but that was exactly what it was up to for Henry + Charlotte's wedding, and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We had pockets of dry to nip outside for some portraits, and when you have a couple who can't keep their hands off each other, and some dank horses, then you have everything you need.

Quex Park Wedding, the seaside, a fernery and greenhouses galore | Lauren + Nick

Sharing a love of the sea, Lauren + Nick were always going to end up marrying near the sea. After prep in hipster Margate, and a church ceremony in Birchington-on-Sea we headed down to the beach that Lauren would spend time with her mother at. There was, in no particular order, coastal gales and biting sea spray, a fernery, a driver with some seriously long shirt cuffs, greenhouses galore and probably the nicest bunch of South Londoners you're ever likely to cross paths with.

Carnival wedding at the Everyman Theatre on Liverpool's Hope Street

You couldn't help being taken by their abundant and unmissable love for one another, by the abundant concrete at the Everyman and by the crisp, modern vibe it gave the whole reception. Being at a venue that can make fine espresso coffee does no harm, and strolling down Hope Street whilst the NW's friendliest folks whoop and holler their congratulations from the pavement cafes and car windows meant the day was processing just as you hoped it would. And then - an entire CARNIVAL goes and shows up(!)

Beautiful destination wedding at Villa Gaia near Milan | Erica + Simone

Sometimes you just don't need a shared language. Not a spoken one anyway. There is a boatload to be said for the freedom of spending the day attuned to nothing but the unspoken connections between people. Hanging out with Erica + Simone at Villa Gaia just west of Milan was a dream.

Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding | Amy + Ewan

I won't lie; I fully pretended I was in an episode of Taboo roaming around East India Docks when at Trinity Buoy Wharf for Amy + Ewan's wedding. It's such a unique urban venue. In East London, of course. Where else would you have a parkour academy and a Fat Boys diner next door?
