Happy Monday my lovelies! Is the sun shining for you today? I do hope so – we had the most beautiful sunrise up here in the Lake District and I’m feeling happy and excited for a lovely week ahead! In real life, it’s full of me writing wedding invitation samples on handmade papers with my fave calligraphy pens – and then I’ve a modern calligraphy workshop by the coast on Friday. In wedding blog life (which is a joyful existence lived inside my computer!) this week we have lots of fabulous inspiration for you including a virtual explore of Sussex’s best wedding venues and a rundown of some of the Midlands’ finest wedding bands – if you’re in those areas, check back here through the week to find out more!
Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love grows and gives us a fairytale – Michael’s mum
Scrolling through the fabulous images from today’s London wedding, I get a very strong feeling that this is only the beginning of gorgeous couple Michael and Dorito’s story. It’s for this sense of ongoing narrative that I love sharing documentary wedding photography – I find it keeps my feet on the ground and reminds me that weddings are just as much a part of daily life as having breakfast and chatting to friends.
Hey lovelies! Let’s dive straight into today’s real wedding – it’s too good to miss! Gorgeous couple Lauren & Duncan were married in July at the gorgeous Merriscourt, Oxfordshire. They had lots of lovely rustic details with flowers and foliage everywhere – and such carefully selected styling elements. Lauren’s dress by Sottero & Midgley (from Once in a Lifetime Bridal) is stunning! “It was as if it was made for me, and I felt incredible on the big day.”
This wedding is making me feel like summertime… and with the rain this morning hammering against the window in my little office, I’ll take that! Images are by lovely Rachel Lou Photography.
Hi lovelies! How is your wedding planning going and are you hooked on Pinterest yet? I’ve spent today falling down random Pinterest holes… it’s not been a mega productive one so far! And the photoshoot I’m about to share with you hasn’t helped at all… there are so many stunning ideas here. We’re talking late summer wedding style – for that brief period of time when the summer begins to fade and wisps of autumn stir the air. A delicate, pastel colour palette still works this late in the season, but tinged with plum tones and darker pinks the look becomes something truly special to work with the earliest days of autumn.
I love everything about today’s wedding – the joyful colours, the happy couple and their gorgeous smiles, Charlotte’s fabulous Lucy Can’t Dance dress and Pete’s tweed suit (orange buttons get a YESSS!) and the vibrant floral styling on the tables. Here’s a wedding to Pinterest the hell out of – you’re gonna LOVE this! Images are by lovely English Wedding member Helen England Photography.
