winter wedding blog by Lifeline Photography (18)I’ve been waiting so long for a cold snap. I pictured myself blogging all wrapped up and toasty, with glistening icicles outside and this winter berries wedding inspiration shoot on my screen, next to a mug of steaming hot chocolate…

Well there’s no snow outside (yet). I give up!!! But it’s chilly. It’s been frosty… and the sparkles on the pavement in the morning say it’s time to blog this lovely wedding inspiration shoot!

Two posts – all about the shoot today, and an inspiration board to share with you tomorrow. If you’re having a winter wedding, think of sparkly frost and crystals, red berries all shiny and light with a little snow on top… a little bit of white (fake) fur, and plenty of gorgeous sparkle. Hannah Webster (of Lifeline Photography) and friends are here to show you how!

winter wedding blog by Lifeline Photography (32)The shoot was photographed by Hannah from Lifeline Photography. “The more weddings I shoot, the more I fall in love with the little hand crafted details that make things feel so personal.

I haven’t written a wedding business advice post for a little while – but over the last few weeks I’ve been helping friends with business advice here and there, and I thought I’d share with you today.

Every time I’m asked for advice about running a wedding business, I think, “I’ve been through that”, and it means I can help. I’m sure very many of us running our own businesses can identify with the same issues and dilemmas, so I’m going to try and use the blog to share my advice with everyone.

Wedding blogs – what’s that all about?

I was asked this question today, by a photographer I know via twitter. It’s funny: I live in a little bubble where blogs are the centre of everything I do, and it’s so easy to forget that the blogging phenomenon is still relatively new to the UK. Of course, this applies to brides and grooms as well as to wedding businesses. So it was a great question to be asked, and really got me thinking.

You’ll love this, it’s a wonderful story and a gorgeous celebration of love. Heather and Titus were married in London a few weeks ago, bringing together their families from Canada and Scotland. One beautiful moment caught my eye when I first saw the wedding on the Green Olive Wedding Photography blog – Titus wraps Heather all up in the biggest, cuddliest hug you could imagine – and in seconds my heart melted. Watch out for that pic as you enjoy the images kindly submitted by Green Olive Wedding Photography.

Heather was really generous with her account of the wedding day, sharing details and secrets of how they planned a beautifully inclusive and intimate day for all their family and friends. I’ll hand over to Heather to share her story.

“We wanted to have a planet-friendly and homemade wedding, keeping as many things UK-based as possible – the company who made our rings, wedding favours, and refreshments. In addition to the vintage dress, rented kilt, homemade veil and bouquet, our centre pieces were wooden roses in old beer bottles that the guests took home and the wedding favours were personalised tea towels.

Just a quickie blog post this evening to follow up the A Alicia wedding accessories competition. Congratulations to Steph who wins the £25 voucher to spend at www.aaliciawedding.bigcartel.com.

Anna says, “With my wedding accessories collection I’m always striving to strike a balance between classic vintage style and fresh contemporary chic. I want brides (and grooms) to feel they can use my accessories to help make their wedding personal and unique, to express their own style, which is also why I also love bespoke requests!

Despite saying that the Royal Wedding “is sooooo last month” recently on my own little blog (a bold statement I know) I have to confess that I’ve stocked up on the Kate & Wills memorabilia. As well as collecting the Daily Mail’s free souvenir I also snapped up the Royal issue of Hello, the Sun and the Royal Mail Collectors Stamps (oh how very OAP of me). I thought that it would be nice to keep a few mementos from the Windsor’s big day as they decided to get wed in the same year as us… I’ve phrased it this way as we’ve been planning our DIY nuptials since Garry popped the question on Bognor Beach on 13th June 2009 (so at the risk of sounding like a school girl, we started planning first).
