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!)

OXI Photography's beautiful fine art wedding style for a shoot with Vintage Button accessories (4)

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.

Woodland romance and beautiful bluebells for a Derbyshire wedding shoot with HBA Photography (21)

On the most challenging of spring weather days; quite literally sleet, snow, rain and dazzling sunshine, HBA Photography & Nadia Di Tullio Flowers gathered together with a host of the most lovely wedding folks to create a series of images for the newly formed Field & Forest Weddings run by Charlotte and Dave Garner, to help showcase what a stunning location they have to offer to host woodland weddings, natural ceremonies and other events. Here’s what they had to say…..

Woodland romance and beautiful bluebells for a Derbyshire wedding shoot with HBA Photography (7)

Have you ever seen a sea of bluebells? Well we were lucky enough to be invited to the beautiful village of Yoxall, in the Staffordshire countryside to have a nosey round the stunning bluebell woods at the new wedding venue, Field & Forest Weddings. It was simply stunning and the perfect place for some dreamy wedding photos! We are very lucky to know some very talented and truly lovely people within our industry and they were all very happy to take part and contribute to our ideas. The whole shoot was so much fun, everyone stayed for the whole day (which is very unusual) and we had lunch and cake in the woods!

Today’s autumnal wedding styling feature is perhaps a wee bit early. But it’s a little cold and rainy today, so I’m almost feeling autumnal and looking forward to sharing weddings from nature’s most vibrant season. I wanted to take a peek at something from last year with you – this will inspire all of you autumn brides and grooms and I hope you love our ideas for autumn weddings!

Discovering amazing creatives is my favourite thing. Being a wedding blogger means I get to see the newest and best ideas in wedding styling – and I’ll always share my favourites with you. I feel so lucky to be sharing this breathtaking shoot, planned by Clare from Vintage Button Bridal Designs, with you today. The images are incredible, the detail and styling exquisite.

Clare Lloyd designs and makes beautiful, intricate bridal accessories, hair adornments and jewellery in Frome, Somerset.  She’s been making jewellery and bridal accessories for several years now and this is the first time she’s organised her own styled shoot.

My vision for the shoot was to mix the timeless, classy feel of old school Hollywood elegance with fine art style photography and incorporate current trends of lots of greenery, foraged foliage and wild bouquets with antique lace, tulle, soft muted colour and modern calligraphy.

I just adore the pretty, feminine florals in today’s inspiration shoot from West Dean Gardens. The frilled petals add something a little boho chic to the arrangements and go beautifully with the dusky pink table styling in this incredible setting. Huge thanks to Illy Elizabeth Weddings for today’s feature! Images are by lovely Joanna Cleeve Photography and you’ll find a full suppliers list below.

There are so many venues in Sussex that are secret treasures. We had to do an inspired shoot featuring West Dean Gardens to show many wedding couples the potential of this venue.

We were inspired by the venue details to combine both a Bohemian and English styled theme. Beautiful pastels and copper golds were chosen as the colour scheme, featuring stunning flower arrangements by Lily Lupin that complimented gold terrarium décor details.

Pastel pink vintage crockery was complimented by the copper cutlery that brought all of these colours together with a blush pink linen to cover a rustic wooden table.

My lovely friend and sponsor Ayshea Goldberg Photography sent me this wonderfully light and bright wedding photoshoot to share with you all. I adore the contrast of the lemon and purple colour palette; the venue itself is simply breathtaking – a magical location for a beautiful English wedding.

“The venue we chose was Layer Marney Tower and the theme was a summer country garden wedding. We opted for bright lemon flowers and lush green foliage to bring a fresh and vibrant feel to the shoot. Each supplier used their expertise and talents to really showcase what they love doing and highlight their creativity.” [Full supplier credits are at the end of the feature]

Hire a fun vintage VW photo booth for your UK wedding (5)

Photobooths are my favourite thing when I’m letting my hair down and enjoying a real life wedding – fact. I love the giggles and fun of dressing up; but I also love the escape from the formality of the day, sometimes. I’d love to see more photobooths with a real focus on style and being a treat for guests to enjoy. The Boho Booth is just perfect…

The Boho Booth is in a vintage campervan. So for me, it’s instantly a winner! Hire the Boho Booth and you get a self operated camper photo booth with instant high quality studio finish photographs and elegant vintage, boho and quirky styling. There’s a boho box with signs and props, but the Boho Booth are keen to point out this is a photobooth for couples who want a booth experience without the cheesy party props.

They even have optional extras for your day, which sounds pretty amazing: a glitter station, guest book keepsake and fresh flower crowns – which beat the tacky feather boa and outsized plastic sunnies any day!

The beauty of the sea is in gazing out to the edge of the world – seeing infinite possibilities, feeling that wistful longing for distant adventures.
