This summer has been wonderful already. I’ve written for some amazing couples, worked on fabulous projects for wedding signage and stationery, and designed calligraphy suites for some of my favourite photographers. Tomorrow I’m teaching a calligraphy workshop in Manchester and we have another (booking up fast!) on the 19th of August. If you’d like to come along, you can book places in my Etsy shop now. But first… a few little notes about using calligraphy for your wedding day.


Good morning lovely blog friends! I hope you’ve had the most amazing weekend and are ready for some fabulous wedding style ideas this week – we have some gorgeous real weddings, styled shoots and advice features coming up over the next few days for you to enjoy! But first… the loveliest thing I could find to begin a perfect week for us all…


Happy Sunday morning everyone! I have a lovely shoot to inspire your Sunday morning – we’re talking Marilyn Monroe-esque glamour and a fabulous vintage bridal style. This is pure vintage inspiration for glamorous girls looking for a bold bridal look: whether you’re a rock chick or vintage lover, I have a feeling you’re going to fall head over heels for this!

Wild weddings are soooo incredible – I love the idea of marrying in a relaxed space, surrounded by nature, and let’s face it breaking the rules and ditching tradition and etiquette for something altogether more fun. Today’s styled shoot introduces us to the rather fabulous Browning Bros. – a wedding location where the extraordinary welcomes you with every step.

The shoot was beautifully photographed by lovely Ayshea Goldberg Photography. Ayshea’s eye for styling brought together a lovely bunch of suppliers who worked together to create a perfectly pretty woodland wedding scene: with tumbling florals, flowing calligraphy, nature-inspired cakes and delicate details for the loveliest boho woodland look!


Today, something more than a little different. I do like to challenge perceptions of bridal style, and I know for me at least I’m always looking for the unique, the styles and settings which are different, thought-provoking and of course insanely beautiful. Asylum Chapel, anyone?!

Inspired by the atmospheric beauty of the Asylum Chapel in South London, this editorial shoot is beautifully captured by the very talented Sarah and Lyndon of Fine and Dandy photography.
