Wedding with a touch of creativity

I LOVE this photograph - Lucy looks regal and out-of-this-world beautiful

I LOVE this photograph - Lucy looks regal and out-of-this-world beautiful

Sometimes everything in life comes together and a lightbulb flickers on, don’t you think? It’s happened for me – gradually – over the past month or so. I won’t bore you with details (well, I might, but in a later post) – suffice it to say that Creativity is my newest raison d’être.

I love how weddings provide everyone with an opportunity to be creative, and that those who do have their own very individual ways of realising their creativity. Lucy and James’s wedding is a beautiful, quite normal English wedding with a little twist of creativity which makes it ever so special.

There are two things I love about this wedding, and I hope you will too. The creative touches which sang out to me (you’ll get that in a minute) are Lucy’s beautiful fluffy white shrug – an accessory with a dash of originality which makes her look ice-queen-esque – and her performance.

Performance? Yes – Lucy brought her wedding reception to a complete standstill when she replaced the first dance with the most lovely surprise for James: she sang him a beautiful song, and accompanied herself on the piano. Guests were moved to tears by the heartfelt performance and loving gesture – and even wedding photographer Angela Ward Brown shed a tear at that point!

I hope you love the photographs of Lucy and James’s wedding day. Think crisp autumn day, sunshine, romance, laughter and love.

Tadaah! Lucy's bridal preparations are in full swing

Lucy and James's wedding ceremony

I learned from Angela's blog that Lucy and James had a civil ceremony and a catholic blessing. I'd love to know which got the laughs... either way this is a lovely moment captured

Angela Ward Brown is a wedding photographer based in Winchester, Hampshire – but if you’ve fallen for her photography style don’t worry she will travel! My thanks to Angela for submitting this wedding to the blog. It’s been just what I was looking to feature this week and Lucy and James make a great couple. See more of Angela’s photography on her wedding photography blog.

There’s a moral to this story too: everybody has a little spark of creativity inside. Whether it’s making beautiful music or falling for an accessory with wow factor, including your own creative touch will make your wedding personal, unique and special.

More on that theme to come later… in the meantime I love to hear your comments so please head for the box below! (Special Hello to Rachel from The Wedding Vine who always visits and leaves the most wonderful comments for us here!)
