Top 100 UK Wedding Blogs

This week I was thrilled to hear that this little wedding blog from the North of the UK had been listed by Easy Wedding Search as one of their Top 100 UK Wedding Blogs.  After six hard months of blogging on a professional level I am over the moon to be included.  Big thanks once again to all you wonderful Brides Up North (and my readers from further afield too!) for supporting the blog.  It’s a Northern revolution, I tell you!

I am always banging on about keeping your wedding choices local (like some sort of wedding industry Jamie Oliver type!) so I thought that in a nod to the other truly fabulous UK wedding blogs that are out there, this weeks wedding blogosphere round up should stay close to home.

.

Enjoy, just a little a selection of some of the best of the rest of the British blogs this week…

.

.

English WeddingSeaside Engagement Shoot via English Wedding

Cute and quirky with a vintage vibe.  Exactly how an engagement shoot at the Great British Seaside should be really!

Rock N Roll Bride DIY Skull & Crossbones Style with Whimsical Wonderland Weddings via Rock N Roll Bride

Boutonnieres that bite!  The girls show you how to give your wedding details a punk kitsch twist.  Tres cute.

.

.

OMG Im Getting Married Vintage engagement shoot via OMG I’m Getting Married

This shoot plays on this couple’s roots.  It works so so well.  A veritable festival of colour!

.

Simply put, this tea style wedding dress with lace torso overlay is TO. DIE. FOR.

A cool British themed shoot over on the lovely Annabel’s blog, because we are sooo not over Royal Wedding fever…

Rock My WeddingGorgeous wedding from Lovely Little Details via Rock My Wedding

The details certainly are very lovely.  I especially love the pink sash as a way of distinguishing the bride’s maid of honour.  Pretty and clever: never a bad combo. 

.

There is so much fabulousness out there, it was hard choosing just six!  UK wedding bloggers rule.  See you at lunchtime Brides Up North…

Super Sunday!

May 1st, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Oh the joys of another Bank Holiday Brides Up North!

.

I’m not actually Up North at all right now, rather I am down in the Quantocks in the Somerset area, enjoying a long weekend with a group of friends celebrating my husband’s 30th. I’ll admit I actually wrote this Super Sunday in advance this week for fear of the raging hangover that I am probably sleeping off right this minute.  You never know though, I might be fresh as a daisy, on an invigorating morning bike ride! Unlikely.  Even without a sore head, actually.

.

Still, I’m in a celebratory mood all right, and what better way to indulge (other than in our friends Mr Pinot and Mr Grigio) than in some wedding loveliness from the blogosphere this week.  The best of the rest.

.

Snippet and InkA happy bride in this gorgeous backyard Fourth of July wedding via Snippet & Ink

.

This summer garden wedding is just lovely, and what I wouldn’t give for a backyard that looked like this one.  I especially love the detailing in this wedding, how the bride has used patriotic colours in her bouquet and decorating choices as a nod to the special date.  You can bet that there were fireworks!

.

.

Rock My Wedding Super stylish bride in the prettiest Temperley dress via Rock My Wedding

.

That dress.  I love it.  I want it.

.

As a side note, wasn’t Charlotte from Rock My Wedding just fab on BBC News in the run up to the Royal Wedding?

Style Me Pretty

To die for table dressing in this glamorous, intimate Hollywood wedding via Style Me Pretty

Such great use of light to dress a table for the wedding breakfast.  Simple, yet stunning. I love how this wedding combines simplicity with real Hollywood glam.  Gold star.

Katy Perry is right, the grass really is greener in California (I did actually notice how green the grass was in Malibu on my honeymoon!)!  And you’ll all wish you could be Cali girls after seeing this beautiful bride’s real wedding.

Us Brits do paired down chic better than anyone else.  And this proves it.  Rule Britannia! (Or was that last week’s trend and are we over all that by now…)

I hope not, because did you catch my Rock The Royal Wedding Photo Shoot with Assassynation this week? Check it out

This Super Sunday instalment comes all the way from Thailand.  More like Brides Far East this week, as I am enjoying some relaxation with my hubby in the sun.  Lush.

Whatever you are doing this St Valentine’s weekend – whether its attending one of the fantastic wedding showcases that are on in the region today, being spoilt with cards and chocs or just snuggling up and avoiding the rain -  I hope you have a happy one.

Happy Valentines weekend to all my single readers too.  Keep being fabulous!
