Hey there, lovelies! I fell head over heels for this shoot sent in by lovely Rebecca at Storyteller Photography. The vintage wicker chair is wonderful (and a key trend for 2018 weddings too!) – the foliage is divine and every little detail sings of summer days.

The look is that of a perfectly romantic, slightly boho English garden wedding. Styling touches include plenty of foliage, which works wonderfully for an outdoor wedding in any location. The colour palette is based around luscious greens with hints of white and copper throughout. Foliage is key within the bouquet, flower crown and floral styling, with delicate white and peach accents.

Foliage is used to dress a metal arch, and it’s wonderful to see the beautiful and subtly marbled wedding cake framed so thoughtfully – such a gorgeous creation deserves a show-stopping surround! The cake is finished with a delicately crafted wreath of sugar flowers, and suspended from the archway – doesn’t it look fabulous?!

Wedding shows are an amazing way to discover designers and talents you would never dream even existed… and working alongside Chosen Wedding Fair has led me to some breathtaking discoveries from true talents in the wedding industry. I’m thrilled to be introducing you to lovely Eden b. Studio today – designer Hannah creates the prettiest bridal accessories which are right up my street.

Eden b. Studio will be at the Chosen Wedding Fair in London this Sunday the 8th of October.

Designer Hannah started Eden b. Studio because she really wanted to create something that was completely her vision. Having always loved the little details in design, the intricacy of this work suits her perfectly. Eden b is based in Tunbridge Wells, at Hannah’s small home studio.

“I’m inspired by natural wildflowers and like to keep my designs quite organic and favour muted tones…there’s definitely a boho vibe to my work.”

Bright, funky florals don’t immediately conjure up Old Hollywood glamour… but by using them as a modern twist on a classic theme they can really bring your wedding to life! I adore this shoot for its contrasts; timeless fashion and vibrant styling touches – it’s all so gorgeous and the flowers are ahmaaaazing!

The shoot is all about glamorous vintage wedding inspiration with a modern twist. The Brooklands Museum is a very quirky venue with a retro atmosphere where garage doors, old petrol stations, vintage cars and old staircases make an interesting backdrop.

The modern twist is revealed through the wedding dress collection using the finest tulles, silks and laces as well as through the atmosphere of the decor featuring a delicate pastel colour palette (peach, white, gold, sage green) displayed on the cake, the table setting and the stationery.

Don’t you just love seeing something different on a wedding blog? Inspiration comes in many flavours, but as a blogger I love to discover wedding style ideas with an edge, a twist – a different look to the norm. Today’s shoot stands out from the crowd for its attitude; I love the spiky bouquet; the wild, untamed backdrop of the beach and the contrasting softness of the dresses from Frock and Soul Ltd. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Frock & Soul owner Bekka is from a fashion styling background and has a fantastic creative flair. Her small boutique in Uppermill, Saddleworth stocks bohemian styled dresses and is filled with decor that echoes a natural and organic feel. Bekka selected all the dresses from different designers for the shoot, and styled everything on the day.

I love the vibrancy of today’s shoot – capturing the bride in those last moments before the time comes to walk down the aisle. The details are exquisite: timeless in style, yet bold and contemporary in style. That bouquet…

Submitted by Otaduy to the English Wedding Blog, this styled shoot is all about focusing on those key pivotal moments with the bride before she says ‘I do’.

Keen to focus on the female form we choose two very feminine beautiful dresses from Otaduy, and a strong make-up look – perfect for bringing out the bride’s features and putting her in the spotlight.

For the flowers and bouquet we wanted to create a colorful vibe mixing all types of vibrant colours. We injected a pink quarz touch to the bouquet with beautiful fabric tying the flowers together. We also added a bunch of olive leaves to add a warm and Mediterranean touch – a reflection of the origin of the dress designer.

Today’s woodland wedding shoot is wonderful!!! I LOVE the ribbon tipi and the bouquet – and the dreamy background and styling touches are just incredible! The venue is Oakwood Weddings, a brand new wedding venue nestled within ancient woodland near Ashford. All images are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Helen England Photography, who is based in Kent.

The theme was enchanted woodland wonderland with a touch of bohemian glamour designed by Claire from Blue Daisies Florist who supplied all the beautiful flowers, and Becky from Your Beautiful Day.

As a photographer it’s always an amazing experience to have the opportunity to work with other supplies on a collaborative styled shoot, so when I was approached by Claire about the idea she had for the shoot I jumped at the chance to be involved!

Oakwood Weddings was the perfect setting, nestled in miles of woodland with a carpet full of beautiful bluebells. I was super excited to be shooting at a venue where no weddings have even taken place yet!

Today’s inspiration feature is wonderfully stripped back, individual and super beautiful – from a group of small independent wedding suppliers at Lainston House.

“We wanted to involve smaller independent suppliers, Karolina Grycko who made the cakes, White Designs BridalHampshire Slate, and Byootefel. Having the opportunity for them to work alongside established talent like Brides of WinchesterLittle Lillies and Hayley Savage Photography, who was our photographer for the day, was a great collaboration opportunity for everyone involved.

We choose Lainston House as the venue for the photo shoot, as it is the most beautiful backdrop and has such a variety of places to shoot. The woods in the ground were perfect for our “ceremony” and really captured the essence of the shoot; rustic, simple and about two people dedicating their lives to each other.

 


We asked Owen at Little Lillies for bouquets that were individual, wild and free. Giving him a brief colour palette to work with he came up with two absolutely stunning creations for our brides. Him working organically on location was a joy to witness!

I adore today’s shoot, which really celebrates the end of summer… the details and styling are beautiful and I love the setting: a gorgeous ‘working’ greenhouse full of life and growing things. Perfect for the beginning of your new life together, don’t you think?

Every little detail works so beautifully in this shoot: from the abundant florals to the gorgeous hair accessories by one of my fave designers, lovely Clare at Vintage Button Bridal Designs. The stationery is elegant and timeless, the cake sweet as can be. It all makes me feel as though summer is a neverending adventure!

I wanted to create a styled shoot with a real English Summer feel that was natural, fresh and delicate. From watercolour stationery to blue & white china (my mums!) to soft flowing bridal hair and the most delicate handmade hair accessories.

So here’s something a little different for your Friday lunchtime. Wedding blogs can get a little too consistently pretty… all those white dresses and delicate styling touches… and an occasional reminder that it’s OK to be different is a good thing, right?!

Alternative wedding style ideas from HBA Photography on the English Wedding Blog (15)

Last Wednesday we shared HBA Photography‘s pretty, boho inspired wedding inspiration feature in bluebell woods. (If you missed it, catch up here.) The same shoot explored a more creative, brilliantly alternative look later in the day, and the behind the scenes film we showed last week hinted at a cape of flowers.

The second part of the shoot was about making time to be creative, really being inspired by the environment. Ben had noticed a raggedy part of woodland on a previous visit, much less romantic and far more rock n roll. Our second model Suki looks the epitome of rock chick chic and we added in a touch of atmospheric smokey background tinged with just the right amount of neon! Owning the ASOS dress in the process, she performed the most effortless transition in the blink of an eye, and morphed into an almost elfin like vision in a pink lace dress, flower crown and floral cuffs. Not forgetting her companion Scampi dog, who co-ordinated perfectly with her own custom-made floral collar!

Were you around for our feature with Vintage Button Bridal Design the other day? It has to be one of my absolute favourite shoots of the year – inspiration for a sublime wedding from some amazing suppliers, with a beautiful, balletic twist. (love that word! Balletic!)

I feel equally spoiled and delighted to be sharing more from Vintage Button’s Clare Lloyd today, from the same photoshoot but with a completely different look and style. Of course we’re featuring Clare’s stunning handcrafted hairpieces and necklaces, but this time with a statement bouquet full of vibrant florals with a lush silk ribbon, and Old Hollywood inspired styling.

I adore the beautiful handmade antique bias cut lace dress by Sow’s Ear. For this part of the shoot Charlotte Tillyer styled Sian into a Hollywood starlet with soft, glowing make up and a modern braided take on a classic vintage inspired hairstyle to show off the low cut back of the dress.  Sian’s hair was styled with several different accessories from delicate hair vines worn across the forehead to delicate beaded headpieces pinned around the side of the head.

Nottingham-based Our Wedding Videographers capture all the details in this gorgeous film at Field & Forest – and it’s all there in just one and a half minutes of on-screen pretty!
