Chic modern wedding styling in London, images by Amanda Karen Photography (26)
FEATURED

Hi everyone! I have been saving up this beauty of a shoot to glam up your Monday and give your eyes a treat! Lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Amanda Karen Photography delights us every time with her editorial shoots, and this is one of her very best. Teaming up with Fleur & Fig Styling & Events, the look is fine art beauty mixed with an edge of London chic. The backdrop is the fabulous (and brilliantly named) Dead Dolls House, which inspired Fleur & Fig’s styling and design concepts you’re about to see.

I adore the deep blues and greys used throughout the shoot: the cake crafted by Wildflower Cakes is breathtaking, and teamed with soft grey silk linens from Lancaster and Cornish and crockery from Classic Crockery it looks stunning. Lovely Lauren at Oh Wonder Calligraphy created a luxe invitation suite in her signature style with the most delicate hand torn edges and romantic calligraphy.

I met lovely Tracy from The Flower House at a styled editorial shoot last September – and she’s one of the friendliest wedding creatives you could hope to meet. Tracy’s talents with flowers are a joy to witness:  her arrangements are thoughtful and beautifully arranged, with huge character and a fabulous contemporary style. They’re the focal point of today’s inspiration feature, which shows you how to style a bohemian wedding with rich tones for late summer. The images are by my lovely friend Jenny Heyworth Photography for Aspire Photography Training.

Styling has the trademark elegance of Emma from Tebbey & Co, who was assisted on this shoot by Catherine from White Feather & Co. The black candles and graceful brass candlesticks work perfectly with the floral arrangements – and don’t you just love that gorgeous mix of colours and textures? The little pink pointy flowers are Blushing Bride, which is very appropriate…

Nature lovers and fans of decadent florals – I have such a treat for you this Thursday afternoon. Today’s feature is all about a boho bridal look with oodles of greenery and the prettiest peach colour accents for a pretty spring vibe.

I love how delicate the Luna Bride gown feels – and how easily a dreamy boho look can become a little more luxe just by adding stunning floral arrangements.

Images are by fine art wedding photographer Arabella Smith, who collaborated with a team of Yorkshire wedding creatives to bring this look to life. The shoot took place during the Helmsley Walled Garden Wedding Open Weekend, with a floral fine art vibe but a little boho twist.

Woodland fairytale wedding with butterflies on the English Wedding Blog. Photo credit: Nina Pang (1)
FEATURED

You’re not alone if you secretly wish English brides and grooms could marry anywhere, like they can in the US: at home, on the beach, or in a beautiful woodland setting like this. That time will come… in the meantime, there’s so much to be said for bringing nature indoors – choose woodland foliage and twisting branches in your bouquet; add butterflies to your tables and stationery; and choose a venue with a patch of woodland nearby so you can escape for beautiful portraits with your love!

Today’s styled shoot was sent in by our lovely friend and inspirational wedding stationery designer Emma Jo. Images are by Nina Pang, and you’ll find a full supplier list of all the super talented creatives involved below.

Emma’s wonderfully elegant stationery nods towards the ‘Fairytale’ theme while being elegant enough to suit lots of couples and their weddings. We love the simple, minimal design with folding laser cut butterflies! Emma’s brush lettering skills come into play with the apple place settings, and she created complementary calligraphy-style pieces for the cake topper, cocktail stirrers and butterfly place settings.

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…

Bridal separates by Otaduy (28)

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!
