Escapism has been a huge part of the blog this year – and it doesn’t come better than this. Jaw droppingly beautiful dresses and dreamy florals, daringly different styling touches and a wintry aesthetic…. I ADORE this shoot! For wedding inspiration with an alternative twist, keep on scrolling and prepare to fall in love! Huge thanks to lovely Clare at Clementine Moon for sending this our way. Images are by lovely Hannah Barnes Photography, and there’s a full supplier list for you below.
Balance is hugely important to me. I feel a responsibility as a wedding blogger – there has to be reality on here. As much as I love a styled photoshoot, and I do enjoy the fine art style of wedding blogs, it’s the reality of a wedding that thrills me. There’s the beautiful bride, the gorgeous details and all the elegant styling of course. But on the day, there’s the excitement. There’s that pure excitement and overwhelm and the buzz and nervousness of a wedding day. I’m sure you’ve heard other couples say it all goes by in a blur – I know I have. It’s a whirlwind of people, of faces and hugs and having the best day ever with everyone you love all at once.
We’re all rethinking weddings right now I reckon. All the preconceptions of what a wedding “should” be are being flung out of windows and we’re downsizing while shifting the focus from colour palettes and decor onto family and the luxury of just being together. So as always, when a York Place Studios wedding comes along, I’m thrilled because that refreshing, different, glorious perspective shines brightly.
I’m so proud to be able to say we feature EVERY kind of wedding on English-Wedding.com. For me, a wedding doesn’t have to follow a standard formula or conform to a particular look, or trend. It only has to be a celebration of love, with a splash of creativity and imagination… and gorgeous couple Ayla & Jake celebrated their commitment to one another in the loveliest possible way. A sunrise ceremony in English woodland, albeit on a very rainy day, an ‘official’ registry office marriage and a cosy and heartwarming day spent with friends and family make this a really special wedding for us to share.
