Goodbye May, you have been delicious! As we skip from spring into summer tomorrow, the wedding season begins in earnest. I am so excited to have some incredibly beautiful shoots tucked up my little sleeves, which will be published on the blog throughout June. Let’s begin with something beautiful, shall we? This is simply outstanding wedding style inspiration from the magnificent Somerley Estate in Hampshire, brought to you by lovely Tasha of the Hampshire Wedding Club.
What’s your favorite season? Mine just so happens to be spring and this wedding inspiration highlights exactly why. From the chalky elegant bouquet saturated with rich red hues and, to the handpainted cake accented with the matching florals. All captured by the very talented Anna and Stu, of Cooper Photography.
Hampshire is one of the most beautiful and inspiring places in Southern England. Miles of countryside stretch into rolling green hills. This is the scene inspiring Cooper Photography, and a marvellous collection of Hampshire Suppliers who together created this effortlessly stylish, laid back luxury editorial shoot. Dreamy florals by award winning Arcade Flowers in on trend deep burgundy tones vs chalky blues and peach are beautifully coordinated to match the country luxe of the Somerley Estate. Effortless and luxury in perfect harmony.
We want to provide inspirational and stylish images for this wonderfully grand and traditional Hampshire Country House. We felt the selection of colours would reflect the depth and romance of the season, and the promise of lots of elegant and free-spirited weddings. Weddings embracing the magnificence of this adaptable and inspirational Hampshire wedding venue. Especially for the laidback elegance lovers across the UK.
This shoot is full of evocative romantic florals sumptuously mixed with a seasonal on trend colour palette. The refined yet simple styling centred around a small table with exquisite floral detailing. Stationery is luxury with a timeless, handwritten font in soft gold – it’s by the wonderfully talented Georgina Read Creative. And last but by no means least, some delicious treats for wedding guests. Elegant vintage glasses with the delicious French 75 cocktail and an extraordinary hand painted wedding cake created by the lovely Gemma from Tartufi Cakes!
It’s a pleasure to be able to share these images with you – they are the result of a wonderful collaboration between a wonderful photographer, a superb venue and some very dedicated and inspiring suppliers. They offer a beautiful and incredibly elegant example of how to incorporate two classic colours in to your wedding day; blue and red.
