I don’t know if Instagram and Pinterest have made us love flowers more, or if flowers led us to fall in love with Instagram and Pinterest in the first place… but I’m sure you’ll be Pinning today’s loveliness like crazy. I love the idea of hanging flowers in little vases up the walls of your wedding venue… and this super pretty wedding DIY project from Pumpkin & Pye‘s lovely Natasha shows you how!

You will need – flower stems, foliage stems, twine, scissors, wooden pole or nails to hang vases from (if your chosen wall doesn’t have beams to use)

hanging flower display tutorial by Pumpkin & Pye (1)

Step 1

Select your flower heads, foliage stems and vases (bottles, milk bottles and jam jars are perfect as the lip on these holds the twine in place once tied)

Step 2

Cut your flower/foliage stems to the desired length for each vase

You might just recognise bride Steph from the cover of the English Wedding Book… you might recognise the calligraphy in this shoot as mine – I was so happy to be a part of this shoot earlier in the year. You’ll most certainly know the divine landscapes are my beloved Lake District… today’s emerald wedding inspiration shoot comes from the shores of Windermere, from one of the Lakes’ loveliest venues: Silverholme.

The richness of the wedding cakes, calligraphy wedding invitations and striking bridal bouquets contrasts with the blissfully light and dreamy bridal looks. Lake District wedding photographer Jenny Heyworth captures them all beautifully – from the intricate details of the handwritten lettering and marbled wedding cakes to the breathtaking landscapes from the shores of Windermere. Steph and Ellie’s beauty shines: hair and make up are by lovely Lucy Pearson and they wear lovely gowns from Julia Tasker Bridal Couture.

I look at my cherry tree every day to see if the buds are getting any closer to flowering… I just love springtime and all the beauty that comes with it. So today – a treat. A glorious spring wedding.

Real wedding at Oaks Farm in Surrey with Fiona Kelly Photography (21)

As ever, I can’t take any credit for the beautiful photos I’m about to share. They’re by lovely London wedding photographer Fiona Kelly, who told me Victoria had worked really hard to put together such a beautiful wedding. “She had done all the planning on her own and created so many wonderful little touches and ideas that made their day very special and very personal to the two of them… Victoria and Haydn are the loveliest people and so perfect for each other. It was a complete pleasure and privilege to photograph their wedding”

I love meeting couples before they book, it’s exciting to hear about their plans, but it can also be a little nerve racking, a bit like going on a first date!  This first meeting is about getting to know each other and finding out if you like each other, after all, your wedding photographer will be with you for a long time on your big day.

As well as hearing all about your wedding plans, this meeting is about you seeing gorgeous album samples and finding out how your photographer works.  Any professional wedding photographer worth their salt will have insurance, back up equipment, provide you with a contract, and all those great business practices.  So what should you ask during that first meeting? Claire asked me to give a little insight into those first meetings, and to share the questions we’ve been asked by couples just like you, as well as the answers we give.

Katharine and Said were married in the Hampshire countryside, in the most elegant barn wedding celebration you could dream of. Their day is filled with heart-meltingly romantic moments against a backdrop of love and laughter. This is bliss.

Katharine looks incredible. The delicate jewel embellishments on her gown are so gracefully pretty; her bouquet of summer garden blooms is divine. Together these two are the loveliest of couples and I hope you’ll enjoy the beautiful images of their day as much as I do!

Katharine’s review for their wedding photographer is more than amazing: “His photographs are artful, thoughtful and intelligent. No cheesy poses. I don’t remember seeing him at the wedding; he is remarkably discreet and quiet, but yet has captured hundreds upon hundreds of moments. We could not have asked for a more stunning set of photographs.”

I don’t think there are words to describe this breathtaking bouquet… and it sets the scene for one of the loveliest weddings of the year. Laura and Simon married at Cripps Barn in February. Despite a little rain on their day, their smiles and laughter have been lighting up my screen all week – I just can’t stop scrolling through their wedding gallery.

“Jennifer took our photos for our wedding at Cripps Barn in Gloucestershire in February 2016 and we can’t recommend her highly enough – book her and you won’t be disappointed! Simon knew Jennifer from working together several years before, and when we started looking for photographers we took a look at her website, loved what we saw and dropped her a line. From the first meeting at our house, we knew we wanted her to take our wedding photos for us. She’s so lovely, chatty and friendly, we were instantly at ease and loved her portfolio and approach.” ~ Laura & Simon

Rachael and Ashley chose the most amazing location for their wedding – Torre Abbey is a Devon landmark with a rich history and fabulous sea views… and I fell in love with the breathtaking landscapes as soon as I saw this gorgeous couple’s wedding gallery.

Rachael and Ashley chose the Spanish barn at Torre Abbey for their wedding and reception. The space is decorated with a starry canopy of fairy lights set in contrast to the dark oak beams – and with the spikes of greenery and those fabulous narrow windows the barn looks just wonderful.

Jennifer took the newlyweds to Thatcher Rock for a moment or two to enjoy each other’s company. The portraits from this part of the day are some of my favourites. The lightness of the seascape, the unmistakeable location and the romance of the Devon coast are what make this wedding so wonderfully unique and special.

Words & images by Liam Smith Photography

Photography is subjective – what I like, you may not. This presents you, my dear reader, with a choice to make: what do I like, and can I afford it?

What is important to remember at all times is the true significance of photography and the photograph. It preserves our lives and our memories in a way that nothing else can.

I wrote my dissertation on the importance of photography and found through thorough analysis of historical photographs and cinema, that photographs actually possess the power to effectively overwrite our own memories. When we attempt to recall a moment, our minds can recall a photograph as a stimulus rather than the actual lived memory. Consider that for a moment, and you’re more likely to remember the photograph of the event, rather than your own memory of the event you witnessed. With that in mind, photography is elevated to a status few thought possible, which adds a whole new dimension to the question, how important are my wedding photographs?

What a beautiful wedding Lydia and Andrew’s was… I found myself smiling back at the gorgeous bride and groom on my screen – Lydia just looks amazing in her Naomi Neoh dress. The cake is lush; the portraits of the bride and groom are wonderful and the flowers are out of this world.

Ami, lovely photographer at Rubie Love Photography, told me, “This wedding for me had everything I love about weddings! It was at their home which is something I just love, so personal and special.

Wadhurst has the most picturesque village church for the ceremony and such beautiful light inside. Lydia made such an incredible bride – I mean, that smile!! – just wow – and that dress: the only way to describe it was the movement was like a dressage horse 🙂 The Marquee provided by Sussex Marquees was gorgeous! The incredible flowers especially the peonies which are my favourite. Most importantly Lydia and Andrew are just adorable together – I am so, so lucky to work with couples like this! So yes everything about this wedding made it perfect.

Lake District wedding with Kathryn White Photography (16)

It’s fab to see an Easter wedding at this time of year – Laura & Jonathan’s day is so full of spring, just seeing the photos makes me happy! The images are gorgeous, the details are perfect, the setting is fabulous and of course the bride and groom are stunning.

Lake District wedding with Kathryn White Photography (21)

“The fact that it was Easter weekend gave a subtle theme with chocolate rabbits as favours and napkins folded into bunnies (by the clever wedding coordinator Michelle at the Rampsbeck) but without overdoing it. The whole day was very relaxed and chilled out, the sort of wedding where I felt more like a guest among Laura & Jonathan’s lovely friends & family than a vendor.
