Saying I do when the world is in full bloom is simply magical. And, whether it’s a gorgeous flower-filled garden or sun-baked city street, the setting and the glowing surroundings are the icing on the cake, as our summer style wedding album shows

Summer weddings are always bathed in glamour. Little wonder then that this is the time of year when so many take place. Our surroundings are in the green and dripping with luscious blooms, the sun makes even the greyest city street put on its best show and everyone has an excuse to wear their wildest hats and loudest prints to celebrate. So whether it’s a garden, a chic register office or a sun-drenched Italian piazza, our glorious album of weddings with summer style shows that bride, groom and golden sunshine are the perfect romantic combination.

Anna and Mart were married in the English Lake District and, in a beautiful but notoriously damp region, even the rain held off in their honour. They took time out to walk together in the mellow sunshine after the ceremony, followed by a coterie of rather curious alpacas. bylumiere.co.uk

Charlie and Ash

Charlie and Ash are tree surgeons and chose to get married in ‘the shed’ back home in Cheshire. It was a sun-filled day full of romance, and they’d even carved their own wooden love seat to sit upon. We approve of the bride’s beautiful floral hair-vine, the perfect crowning touch on an English summer’s day. bylumiere.co.uk
