I actually get butterflies when I scroll through these images. The spirit of our wild coastline is captured so perfectly, peacefully, bringing a sense of oneness with nature. I adore the landscapes – the dramatic Cornish coastline holds a piece of my heart, always. This is more than a collection of images: this is the freedom of spirit, the beauty I’d want to feel on my wedding day.
The incredible bridal separates are by Cornwall-based dressmaker Ailsa Munro. Ailsa’s bridalwear is insanely beautiful to wear, with such wonderful fabrics you’ll be smitten instantly. Any beach bride would feel like a goddess in this, don’t you think?
I adore our bride’s pretty but somehow beachy, surf-chick little plait; her jewellery is delicate, elegant and works perfectly with her look. Do please take a little time this morning to discover all of the wonderful suppliers involved in today’s wedding inspiration shoot, not least lovely Olivia Bossert Wedding Photography, who is based in Cornwall.
Autumn is an amazing time to be married – the colours of the season are super inspiring and there are so many incredible ways to style your day. Today I’m thrilled to be featuring some gorgeous autumn wedding inspiration from the lovely team at Aspire Photography Training. Their styled shoots are wonderful; I was lucky enough to be there for this shoot (you’ll spot my calligraphy here and there!) and I LOVE it.
The colours are bold and striking; contrasting soft blue tones with autumn colours works wonderfully. Vibrant orange cocktails and burnt whisky colours look stunning; combining berries with feathers and textured props is a delight!
The calligraphy was written in shades of orange; I used a handmade paper with white lettering for the invitation and place names, while quotes and poems are striking in amber shaded inks.
Have you ever wondered what makes your wedding photographer tick? Why choose photography as a career, and why weddings? And how do you know your photographer will work their heart out to capture your day and get the most amaaaazing photos for you to remember it by? Our lovely friend Sheryl has a story to share with you…
“I would like to introduce you to ‘us’ – the creative types, the artists – A huge… ‘Hi’!!
I am coming to you now from the photographic side of weddings – but I used to be a professional dancer/actress in London theatres and also abroad. I then moved into teaching and personal training, and finally settled down with my husband, a musician/songwriter and together we had a little boy called Bailey.
After leaving ‘The Arts’, I always felt that it had left a peculiar void in me – something deep in my heart and soul that wasn’t fully satisfied. It was nothing at all to do with my home life, solely to do with the inventive and artistic side of my personality. See more...
Today’s real wedding, my gorgeous blog-loving friends, is spectacular. If there was a bigger word for spectacular which included amazing, beautiful, creative, artisan, and elegant, I’d be using that word. But sometimes… beauty is too big for any word. Here’s our stunning bride, Jessica. She looks incredible, doesn’t she?!
Jessica married Matthew at one of our favourite venues, the fabulous Launcells Barton in Cornwall.
Newly launched as a wedding venue, it’s fast becoming a wedding blog favourite (with features on Rock My Wedding, Boho Weddings and of course the English Wedding Blog).
A true labour of love, Launcells Barton was a major restoration project for owners Lara and Matthew, who have turned this place into a dream venue for all kinds of weddings. It’s welcoming, a little rustic and wonderfully boho, and Jessica & Matthew’s wedding made the very best of every little bit of such a fabulous venue. I’ve fallen hard for this floral chandelier by Brompton Buds… See more...

He’s proposed, it was the most surreal and beautiful moment of your life, you said yes (it was always going to be yes!) Life can’t get much better right now and the future is filled with exciting promise and limitless opportunities.
Then it begins…… where to have the ceremony, will it be church or civil? At the same venue as the reception or local registry office? Home or abroad? The start of a very long list of things to decide upon.
Many a consultation has seen me chatting to brides who have had to spend money rectifying earlier mistakes simply because the excitement of planning a wedding has completely run away with her (one client bought 4, yes 4 different wedding dresses!).
Don’t get me wrong – what bride to be isn’t excited? I would certainly be concerned if you weren’t – but with a few simple hacks, wedding planning can be an efficient and streamlined process (with minimal stress!) and a touch easier on the pocket. See more...
