Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying the 'Summer', now it seems to finally have arrived! Here's a wedding that took place on a beautiful bright day – to get you in the spirit. These photographs were sent in by photographer Ellie Gillard.
Tim and Carys Anderson tied the knot on 7 July this year at All Hallows Church in Liverpool, followed by a reception held at Frontline Centre in Liverpool – a church that both their families attend.
"Carys and Tim's wedding was a delight to photograph, cute details, a beautiful dress and a gorgeous couple always make me very happy…."

"They decorated the tables with assorted vintage tea cups and birdcages and blousy flowers like peonies for a soft, pretty look and instead of favours gave each person a sweetshop bag to help themselves to the retro sweets on offer.
Despite having poured down all throughout the week before, the weather was on our side and we had some truly beautiful sunshine and decamped to Liverpool's Allerton towers with it's ruined orangery which looked straight out of the Tuscan countryside instead of the heart of the North West…"
One thing I adore about this wedding is the florals – the flowers were arranged by a family friend…
"I wanted a romantic/rustic feel but wasn’t exactly sure what flowers to choose. I pretty much left it to my florist and on the day of the wedding when they arrived I was thrilled – they were stunning…"
Cary's wore a dress by Maggie Sottero…
"My dress by Maggie Sottero was one of the first dresses I saw. It was so elegant and not too fussy, exactly what I was looking for. I loved the beaded detail on the front and back…"
"Our photographer Ellie Gillard was simply amazing. We really couldn’t have asked for a better photographer…"
Thank you Ellie Gillard for sharing these very pretty photographs today.
I think the peony must be my favourite bloom of the moment, absolutely adore them.
Are there any more Maggie Sottero reading this feature? I'd love to hear from you.
