My favourite weddings are those when you can just feel the emotion of the day and this wedding does exactly that for me.
There is love and laughter in these photographs and that is after all the best bit of any wedding day. Captured by Day 7 Photography I think you are going to enjoy this delightful Spring wedding.
Reception Venue: Vintage Villas Hotel & Events
As a guest to two weddings in the next few months I have been busy thinking about what to wear…cue mini tantrum when I stand in front of my wardrobe flapping my arms and despairing that ‘I have nothing to wear’. But seriously, I don’t have anything to wear.
Well, maybe I could recyclea bracelet or some shoes or even a dress at a push but it is still always fun to beg/steal/borrow something new (I guess that is where 4 sisters does come in handy).
Spring is a tricky time in England - one minute the sun is out and you’re hot and the next, rain and wind sweep along and take you right back to Winter. Tights and a jacket are a must for Spring.
I am currently in love with pastels, florals and all types of blues. I could do some serious plastic damage over the next few days….

I beamed when I first looked at these pictures - this wedding is right up my street, and thanks to Jo Photo I get to share these with all of you.
Elizabeth and Jess were married in the Spring at Maryville, Tennessee.
Elizabeth and her mother, Leslie, planned a small intimate 2 o’clock afternoon wedding with English adornments to include personalized doilies under each plate with each guest’s name on them, lumps of sugar and vintage decorative tea bags.
The bride’s veil was hand made by the groom’s mother, and there were antique hankerchiefs for ‘happy tears’ during the wedding ceremony.
The guest seating cards were hand made on vintage paper and hung on twine across antique wooden screen doors.
The reception catering included scones, marmalades, delectable tea sandwiches, and hot tea provided in vintage tea pots. The bride and groom’s teapot was hand painted by the bride’s grandmother.
An assortment of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry jams were favors for the guests - the berries were hand picked by the bride’s mother and father months before the wedding, canned in their home, and personalized for Elizabeth’s wedding day!
I love that this wedding includes a photobooth…
This is a bride after my own heart…tea, mix match and a photobooth. Genius!
Spring has definitely been springing in England this week, which made me think of sourcing these Easter/Spring pictures for a wedding.
I think any April wedding can use touches of Easter as inspiration for the day. Personally, I love the idea of sending children (and adults) on an easter egg hunt…
