We all dream of the fairytale wedding and we all have a different vision of how that day will be. Here is Fay and Jamie's fairytale wedding!


Fay Louise Walton and Jamie Walton from Enfield met 5 years ago while working at David Lloyds Fitness and married on 8th December 2018. They have a beautiful daughter named Jessie who is almost 2 years old and of course was able to be part of their special day.  Both their ceremony and reception was held at the magnificent Parklands, Quendon Hall, which is a 17th century mansion.


 Located on the Essex/Hertfordshire border it is set in over 100 acres of picturesque deer park. This venue truly is beautiful and provides the perfect setting for your fairytale wedding.


Take a look at some of their beautiful images that have been shared with us of their fabulous wedding. Fay looks absolutely stunning and you can see by the images that she is enjoying every moment of her special day.




Who said that bridesmaids can't wear white?. We all think that bridesmaids can't wear white, who even said that?. It is actually a tradition. Yes that's right, bridesmaids would wear white in order to confuse any evil spirits to disguise the bride in the group. So, if you would like to dress your bridesmaids in white then go for it!. Tell anyone who says it's not tradition that it is!. I think these beautiful images look incredible and show their personalities. You can see that everyone is at ease and having fun, which is lovely to see and is how you should be made to feel by your photographer. This makes the photographs look so natural looking.


The groom and the groomsmen are all looking so smart in their matching suits. Don't they look great!.  This image looks amazing and I am loving the sky in the background, I think it makes it look so interesting and unique.


You can see that so much thought has gone into all of these beautiful images, taking time on every photograph that has been taken to produce images that look so natural. To be able to capture images like this is something that comes naturally to a professional and experienced photographer.


This is one of my favourite images, it is so romantic. The night sky is lit up with amazing fireworks, it really makes the perfect backdrop.




Just look at these stunning images, you can see how much Fay and Jamie are in love. I also love that they have had so many different photographs taken of just the two of them together, throughout the day. It is so important that your photographer gets as many different photographs as possible throughout your day, so when you look back on your memories it's almost like you are re-living each moment of your day. Enchanting Captures Photography have done just this for Fay and Jamie, they have so many images to look back on for the years to come.


I love this image, their beautiful daughter Jessie sitting on her Mummy's lap, surrounded by their family.


 Gorgeous image of the bride and groom with the bridesmaids and groomsmen.


This is fab!. Such a great and fun image of everyone together. Again, thought and time to create an image that is completely different. 

So, have you been inspired by this wedding?. Maybe a country mansion venue is for you and could you be dressing your bridesmaids in white?

5 Things To Discuss When You're Newly Engaged! By My Guest Blogger Guides For Brides




5 Things To Discuss When You're Newly Engaged

Congratulations, you’re engaged! Before you start to pin wedding dress pictures or visit venues, it’s important to sit down with your other half to discuss a few important issues. When wedding planning, you need to be on the same page and working towards the same vision, so Guides for Brides have listed the top five things to discuss before you put any money down...

The Guest List


Sit down together and make a list of the family and friends you’d like at the service, again there is loads of print off guest lists online, choose who you’d like to be there on the

The Dress





Choosing the perfect fairytale dress can be stressful! The good news is there are thousands of them to choose from, so eventually you will find the one. I've been married twice, yes twice! and I know first

The Wedding Budget





Money is never a good subject to talk about in a relationship but unfortunately it's a must when planing your big day and should be the first thing on your list.

Choosing The Venue

When it comes to getting married, the place you choose to do it is just as important as the dress, your guest list and even the rings you choose. As well as being the backdrop to all of your photographs, the venue of the ceremony should represent you and your partner’s personalities.

Wedding Hair Inspiration!




What Hair Style will you choose for your wedding day?
If your looking for wedding hair inspiration then your on the right page!. I think we all have a image

The Younger Guests!



Weddings are all about family so for those that have a large family will most likely have relatives with children or maybe you have children yourself, if that is the case then having children attend your wedding is a must. You may of course not want children at your wedding and if that is the case then you need to make sure that you let the parents know when sending out the wedding invitations, I have done a post all about your wedding invitations.

2019 Wedding Dress Trends!



The traditional white bridal dress will always be around but designers are now looking through the eyes of every woman to make every individual brides dream come true so they can have their perfect fairytale wedding dress. With so many different designs to choose from, there will be a dress you fall in love with!

Wedding Favours



Traditionally five sugar almonds were given as favours to represent fertility, longevity, wealth, health and happiness. The bitterness of the almond and the sweetness of the coated candy are a metaphor for the bitter sweetness of a marriage. Well today it's all changed!

Bridal Hair



Deciding on which hairstyle you want for your special day all comes down to the style dress you choose and of course the theme of your wedding (if you have one that is). I choose a vintage style dress and my venue was in a Victorian manor so the hairstyle I choose went with my style dress and venue.

Wedding Invitation




I would advise you to get your invitations sent out 12 months in advance or as soon as you have a date booked for your wedding, especially if your wedding is in the summer months. Letting your guests know as early as possible will give them a chance to clear their calendars, make necessary travel arrangements and plan around your wedding date. If you don't want to send out the invitations that early then another option is a save the date card, which I think is a great idea, you can send out your invitations when your ready then, although I wouldn't leave it too close to the date as guests will also have their planning to do too, I would say no later than 12 weeks in advance if you are doing it that way.
