I came across a great British wedding photographer called Danni Beach. Her photos are beautiful to look at and they have a wonderful sense of place about them – the photos here couldn’t have been taken anywhere else but good ol’ Blighty.

On a sunny but windy weekend a couple of weeks ago my fiance and I went arrived in Bedfordshire for a friends wedding. Luton Hoo is a grand house north of London near Luton airport and a beautifully ornate and grand building. Designed in 1767 by Robert Adam with Capability Brown landscaping the magnificent gardens. The house has appeared in many films from Four Weddings and a Funeral to Eyes Wide Shut and has even played host to the Queen. And today we’re its guests! Luton Hoo is open for afternoon tea and we had to shimmy past tables and sofas where people were enjoying their cucumber sandwiches to take our group pictures on the lawn.
Here is the room where the ceremony took place. The bride had a blue theme running throughout with blue bows on chairs and flowergirls scattering blue rose petals.
Each table was named after a place in New York as it was the city where the couple got engaged (in Central Park…very romantic!).
I loved the scattered love hearts on the tables. They made for much tipsy fun later on in the afternoon!
The sticky toffee pudding dessert was one of the bets I’ve EVER eaten…
…as you can tell I enjoyed it!
Each table had tall glass centrepieces.
The wedding breakfast was in a former chapel and we were surrounded by amazing stained glass and plainted murals.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a lovely wedding on a farm in Suffolk. Fairy lights filled the trees and twinkled in the rivers that surrounded the farm.
The bride had got crafty and made most of the decorations. Bunting was created from different textures of white fabric and blue and pink fairy lights trailed the beams of the farmhouse along with homemade butterflies.
Each guest was given a local pickle or chutney in cute little jars tied with rose pink ribbons printed with the message ‘To have and to hold’. Get these ribbons for your own big day at Cox & Cox.
