Some things I’ve missed like crazy… hazy sunshine and evenings spent with friends. European sunshine and lazy days on holiday. Time to escape, to completely relax and be somewhere utterly new and refreshing. You too? Let’s hope it won’t be too long before we can safely spread our wings again. Meanwhile, I have the most beautiful photoshoot to share with you today. Our wonderful friend Tara from Pudding & Plum Photography was lucky enough to be in the Algarve before lockdown hit, and I asked her if we could publish these breathtaking images. Think dreamy wedding styling ideas and divine fashion photography in the evening sunlight.

Hey Lovely! I’m having the busiest day with calligraphy orders in my little studio today, so apologies for the slightly later-than-usual blog post! I’m excited to share this pretty folk festival styled wedding which was done on a tight budget, believe it or not! The personal touches make this day ever so special: both Lauren & Stefan are involved with the morris dancing & folk music scene, which adds a wonderful traditional, old English flavour to their day! The gorgeous couple had a friend play Lauren down the aisle and were given a morris guard of honour as they left the church before having a dance. They used Lauren’s fathers old American Camaro for the transport and had two different bands in the evening, one of which was Stefan’s dad’s band!

Happy Sunday lovelies! We’re heading up to the Lakes today to catch up with family, and hoping for a dry day with views! I hope you’ve got lovely Sunday plans too 🙂
I thought I’d share today’s beautiful wedding on the blog a little earlier than normal (because we all have Sunday things to do, don’t we?!) Emma and Stefan’s day is oh so elegant, with classic styling touches and plenty of summer sunshine. Emma looks stunning in a Mark Lesley dress, perfect for Prestwold Hall‘s sophisticated and timeless surroundings.

Canals have a romance all of their very own, don’t you think? If you’ve ever strolled along a canal before sunset you’ll know how wonderfully tranquil those towpaths can be. The adventure of drifting through England’s hidden waterways is one I dream of experiencing, one day. So Heather and Michael’s day has my heart: their photos by the locks are beautiful; their tipi reception is full of character and quaint old English charm – it’s perfect.
