We launched the English Wedding Bible last week with TWO lovely prize draws for you gorgeous folks to enter, as well as a plethora (love that word!) of gorgeous style inspiration, advice and ideas to help you plan your best day ever. There’s still time to enter and win prizes, so I thought I’d take a little time out today to tell you more.
Last summer I styled an editorial photoshoot very close to home – as many of you know, I live on the edge of the Lake District and within minutes’ walk of the beach. When lovely Sheryl from Oobaloos Photography suggested we do a photoshoot here, I just couldn’t say no. I’m a huge believer in letting your surroundings influence the style of your day, and my choice of suppliers to take part in the shoot was inspired by the wild beaches of south Cumbria – my favourite place in the world.
How was your weekend? We’ve had blissful sunshine and a lovely sea breeze, perfect for a friend’s party and a day’s tidying up the garden… as it’s my main view when I’m blogging, it’s important my little flowers grow bigger than the weeds so I can see them! While I’m in a sunny mood, I’m all about sharing summer weddings on the blog, and today’s is just the perfect summer’s day.
If you have half an hour or so free this Sunday afternoon, I would love for you to check out our digital magazine, the English Wedding Bible. I love curating all the features, shoots, writing articles and putting the publication together, and I really hope you’ll enjoy snuggling down with your phone or tablet and having a good old read! Of course, the shoots in the magazine are the ones which really knock my little socks off – and you’ll recognise some of the images from the blog today when you read the magazine too! The flowers in this shoot are just divine – they’re perfect for a spring bouquet with a glorious combination of roses with eucalyptus, sweet peas, wax flower and green hellebores. Images are by our lovely friend and English Wedding sponsor, Amanda Karen Photography. The shoot was styled by lovely Emma Turner Weddings, and there’s a full supplier list below. Here’s Emma to tell you more!
