Good morning! I hope you’ve had the most wonderful weekend. Today I just can’t resist sharing some of the beautiful images lovely Zehra Jagani sent to me a day or two ago. These are from a wedding inspiration shoot which I supplied calligraphy for. The shoot was published on Brides Up North over the summer.

The epic shoot these came from had a Provençal flavour, with dreamy eucalyptus and soft blues and greys – and florals to die for! I love the colours of the calligraphy for a winter wedding though: the soft tones and delicate papers work beautifully for a modern wedding in the colder half of the year.

The handwritten menus on acrylic work beautifully placed over eucalyptus – and that little berry peeking from underneath is a sweet touch for a more autumnal wedding. These can have names added to double up as place names / menus. Contact me for details!

It’s rather lovely to be sharing a styled wedding shoot with a family focus – today’s images sent in by lovely Pudding & Plum Photography are all the more special for the little face alongside the bride and groom! I know so many of you will be thinking of ways to involve your children at your wedding, and this beautiful shoot includes a little bridesmaid from the very beginning. You know what? It makes me smile SO much – her happy little grin is just adorable! The styling by Worsley Creative is brimming with ideas for you to take away: the cake and treats look divine; the dress is dreamy as anything. And the FLORALS… I have no words! You will LOVE this!

The urban landscape of sprawling Salford may not be an immediate choice of location for a romantic wedding shoot with its busy streets and industrial vibe but look closer and you will discover some medieval magic amid the metropole. Ordsall Hall dates back as far as 1177 and provides a striking setting for combining contemporary romance with historic grandeur and drama.

Good morning lovelies! I have a beautiful and very different idea to share with you this morning: a bridal boudoir photoshoot, which was sent in by English Wedding member Emily Andrew Events. Bridal boudoir photography is a lovely idea, I think: there are many female wedding photographers around who do boudoir photography as a confidence boost (and I’ve seen such wonderful reviews of this experience!). Perhaps you’ll find time on your wedding morning to do this; perhaps it’s something you can arrange before the big day. Either way, I hope you’ll find today’s feature inspiring and Emily’s words thought-provoking. The images by Valentine Studio are wonderfully romantic and feminine.

 

This shoot was designed to capture the quiet excitement a bride feels on the morning of her wedding, the small moments in which she gets to contemplate the magnitude of the day ahead and those private, final minutes of wedding preparation.

Today’s feature captures both timelessness and fresh, modern styling in a dreamy wedding editorial from Natalie Stevenson Photography. The location is St Etheldreda’s church ruins, whose crumbling stonework and beautiful detailing inspired this breathtaking wedding style.

The fashion forward styling with elegant touches and delicate detailing is perfect for a 2020 wedding. The look is romantic; our bride looks graceful and sensual in Polish designer Anna Kara‘s Irvette gown from Morgan Davies Bridal – with distinctive wisps of tulle from the shoulders, lace reminiscent of waves rippling over the beach, and a deep neckline on the back of the gown. Hair is by By Lois and make up by Belles Beauty and accessories from Rachel Sokhal. The groom is dressed for the occasion in a classic tux and black tie.

The styling by Princess Occasions is beautifully done: the florals by The Flower Mill with such romantic tones are just perfect. The cake and stationery – by Meadowsweet Cakes and Olive and Millicent capture the timeless essence of this shoot in a subtle palette which I love! And driving our gorgeous couple right back to the sixties is a fabulous Aston Martin DB6 from VOWS Vehicles of Wedding Style.

I am totally in love with this dreamy woodland wedding editorial. The colours – I mean it’s just lovely to see all these delicate shades of blue in the table setting and floral design. And the dappled sunlight in the forest setting brings back a fragrance of summer I totally adore.

This photoshoot was sent in by Alina of Sara’s Events, who styled the shoot and created all the floral arrangements. Aren’t they just perfect? The images are by fine art wedding photographer Natalie Stevenson, and our bride’s beautiful dress is by Indiebride London. Diana Muntean created a striking bridal look for our bride, who wears pretty accessories by Rachel Sokhal to complete the look.

This shoot took place at the end of August. All the floral arrangements were foam free and natural, all linen hand dyed. The style created was a romantic, airy and natural one, that used seasonal flowers alongside elegant special touches. The stationery by Tiggity is exquisite, the candles from Kiss Air are the loveliest colour and really finish the tablescape beautifully. With hire items from Classic Crockery, and Queen and Eden napkins this is a woodland wedding with an understated elegance which looks almost effortlessly beautiful.

Welcome to a rather special boho wedding inspiration feature, all the way from lovely Somerset. We’re talking Bianca Jagger-style bridal attire, sleek silhouettes and on-trend styling with a rustic but chic and fashion-forward aesthetic. Our bride is stunning in a two piece bridal jumpsuit from House of Ollichon and her groom looks amazing in a super stylish suit from Suave Owl. The setting is brilliantly styled, with twinkling fairy lights, copper accents and stunning floral arrangements by Flower Mouse Floristry. The use of twisted willow on the tables is so beautiful – the floral arrangements include peach and cream flowers, dark green foliage, pampas grass and peaches, with striking metallic copper accents.

Trestle tables and candle light give this wedding style a real warmth and welcoming feeling. The rustic ambiance with hessian and muslin textiles works beautifully. The locations around the venue include the old milking shed, and rustic antique cattle stalls, which have a countryside charm all of their own. Dairyhouse Farm has launched as a wedding venue this year, and looks a wonderful space for outdoor style ceremonies. Thank you to Emma from Beautiful Light Photography for sending this our way – I hope you love it as much as I do!

We’re drifting happily into this sunniest of weekends with a wonderfully floaty bohemian shoot from Australia. I just loved the seventies vibe of this one when it landed in my inbox, sent in by the lovely folks at Giant Invitations. Images are by Sephory Photography, and you’ll find a full supplier list at the end of the feature.

Drawing from the enchanting romance of the 1900s, Giant Invitations coordinated and styled an inspirational shoot with the leading experts within the bridal industry. The concept of ‘Victorian Dream’ was inspired by the timeless classic story of the ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’. The film created a wave of influence in the fashion world, especially amongst high-end designer brands such as Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs.

I spoil you sometimes, I do! And the lovely folks who send photos in spoil me! Today is just blissful, dreamy… perfectly suited to an English summer garden wedding  or perhaps, even with a taste of Italy with that sunshine and the fabulous balconies at Kirtlington Park. The lovely guys – Floral Engineers! – from Blooming Haus submitted this dreamy wedding editorial with light, natural and timeless styling – and SENSATIONAL flowers of course!

Let’s relax into a wedding style feature which is opulent, lush and sophisticated, shall we? Today’s blog is all about elegance, with timeless looks inspired by Price & Prejudice beautifully brought to life at Cornwall’s luxurious Burncoose House. Janna from Wild and Free Photography teamed up with stationer Caroline from Love Tree Designs and stylist Natalie Blake to bring a timeless elegance to this enchantingly beautiful wedding shoot.

Inspiration came from Jane Austen’s romantic novel, Pride and Prejudice, as well as using old world decor to give a truly authentic feel. The colour scheme was inspired by a combination of forest greenery which surrounds Burncoose House paired with gold which represents prosperity and grandeur. Burncoose House in Cornwall has us stepping back in time to the Georgian era with its classic architecture, grand staircase and ornate features throughout, which fitted perfectly with the vision.

Situated under the grand staircase was the most opulent cake by Christine Jensen from Peboryon, that shows off her detailed sugar work and styled by Natalie Blake with draped material and candle light.

Hey beautiful! Today we’re sharing this wonderful, windswept editorial with joy in our hearts. Autumn days have their own kind of magic: it’s all about embracing the beauty of nature and falling in love with the elements, no holding back! Lovely Jessica Lily sent this one in, and I just love it to bits. The dress has a natural grace and magic to it; the bouquet is stunning, and the location is pretty damn special, don’t you think?! There’s a beautiful invite by lovely LouPaper, which would look amazing teamed with bare wooden tables dressed with trailing foliage and autumnal candles…

“The concept of this shoot was to take boho elegance and beauty to the coast. We chose Rottingdean Windmill as it was nostalgic to me but also I hope the location inspires future brides and grooms planning to have outdoor weddings: there really are some hidden gems in the UK.

The bride’s attire was a delicate plunge gown with intricate lace detail created by renowned bridal designer Alon Livne. I decided to keep the model barefoot and use foot accessories to keep with the boho theme.” ~ Jessica Lily Photography

The tones have a gentle autumnal feel to them – but that’s a happy accident as these images were taken in the springtime! The colour palette for today’s editorial is inspired by our lovely friend Heather Jackson Photography, who spent time in Holland this spring and wanted to incorporate the Dutch national colour of orange into a dreamy bridal shoot. I love this so much – I’m going to sit back and enjoy the beautiful video and images now, while Heather takes you through the styling and concepts of this wonderfully inspiring photo shoot.

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re feeling cosy and loving the crisp autumn days now! Up here in the Lakes we have apples dropping on every country lane, it seems – and blackberries ripe for the picking in every hedgerow. It’s a wonderful time of the year. I saved up this gorgeous feature because it’s perfectly fitting as we turn towards the end of the year. The boho vibe truly embraces the bounty of nature, and the look is warming and blissfully beautiful. And those FLOWERS – oh my days, it’s too enchanting for words! There are lots and lots of ideas for you to Pin here – I hope you love it!
