WWW readers Nikki and Russell married back in March in a Church ceremony followed by a reception at the Chequers Inn, Lincolnshire.
Nikki and Russell are one super stylish pair, with Nikki wearing a lace Essence of Australia dress with her side swept hair and Jenny Packham hair accessory. While Russell chose a slim fit Dolce and Gabbana black suit. They looked amazing.
They kept details to a minimum, wanting an English country wedding with a twist. With a cake of cheese, a pretty Lily of the Valley bouquet and a roaring fire.
Thanks so much to the brilliant John Hope for sharing his photographs with us today.

Morning lovelies, are you having a nice weekend so far? A quick Happy Father’s Day to all the fantastic Dad’s out there today, including my Dad and of course G. I hope you all have a lovely relaxing day :-)
Last weekend, i finally managed a road trip. Readers who have been popping by WWW for a while will know i struggle with anxiety and travelling. It has been a year since i last managed the seaside and a 2 hour car journey. But i braved up, we packed a picnic and headed to Clacton for the day.
I was pretty anxious on the way, once i got my crochet out though i did great and relaxed. We had the best day in ages…
G dragged me down the pier, boy was i windy. There is the most amazing wind farm off of the coast which really is a sight to behold. I cannot believe A and G whizzed down here…
It’s international Saturday again already, and to get us in the weekend spirit i have a cute funfair engagement to share with you.
Ashley and Nick had their first date at Balboa Fun Zone, Newport Beach, California. So it was the perfect spot to head back to for their fun colourful engagement shoot. I so love these vibrant and fun photographs.
One lovely wedding to end the week here at WWW this afternoon.
Debbie and Mich married April at Holiday Inn Ashford Central, Kent. They wanted a relaxed small wedding which was kept to a budget of £6000.
They mainly homemade their wedding, with the beautiful silk wedding flowers, pretty pom poms, jam jars filled with blooms and an amazing sponge cake made by Debbie’s mum. Sooo lovely.
Thanks so much to the lovely Hannah May for sharing her images with us, here is what she had to day about the day;
“I felt so honored to shoot Debbie + Mich’s wedding. We were praying for sunshine and sunshine is what we got!
When I turned up, I was amazed at how beautiful all the little details were and could have photographed them all day, especially considering Debbie made her own bouquet and her mum made the cake (which smelt as good as it looks!)
All in all, it was such a fun, laid back day, which was full of laughter. What was particularly great was the evening casino; I love a game of 21 and I couldn’t stop laughing when photographing everyone’s reactions. Definitely a must!
Though I have to admit that my favourite image of the day is definitely her son’s reaction when his girlfriend caught the bouquet! I think that had all of us in fits of giggles!
To Debbie + Mich, thank you so much for being the amazing couple you are and allowing me to capture your big day. I really do wish you all the best on your life together x”

This morning we are going global. UK based wedding planner Jane from Planned for Perfection headed to Australia for a wedding and decided to create a UK/Australian inspiration shoot whilst she was there.
I so love the Sydney backdrop, the beautiful blooms and the stunning afternoon tea table. Thanks so much to Jonathan David Photography for sharing his photographs and to Planned for Perfection for sending this shoot to WWW, here is what Jane had to say about the shoot;
“Working with lots of brides and grooms from overseas, when I visited Sydney earlier this year for my first Australian wedding, I took the opportunity to introduce my Australian contacts to those UK couples wanting to get married in Australia and introduce Planned for Perfection, my award winning wedding planning company, to Australian couples wanting to get married the UK or abroad.
Despite the aggression on the rugby field and cricket pitch, the long distance love between the Australians and the British is thriving, as is the amount of UK /Australian couples finding love and tying the knot! Australia offers a huge array of choices when it comes to planning your overseas wedding, from the breath-taking landmarks of Sydney or the sunny beaches of Queensland to the rugged outback, many couples choose to marry there after discovering the romance and magic of the Land Down Under. Others decide to marry here in the UK, with an enviable choice of historic wedding venues; castles, stately homes, manor houses and beautiful country house hotels and whichever location you choose, Planned for Perfection can help ensure your perfect day!
Everyone knows how much us Brits love a “cuppa tea” and it appears, so do alot of Australians – Morning Tea, High Tea, Cream Tea & Afternoon Tea are extremely popular Down Under with the English tradition of finger sandwiches, scones & cakes served on vintage china, a real hit in the Southern Hemisphere. So, I decided to invite a hand picked selection of Australian wedding suppliers to “A Planned for Perfection Afternoon Tea” arranging a photo shoot, which combined the love of the Australian out-doors and iconic Sydney landmarks, with a quintessential English afternoon tea…”
