This is a little sneak peek into my other life: when I’m not typing I have an old-fashioned pen in my hand… an ink pot, blots on my face, like in the 19th century. I’m not a monk: I’m a calligrapher. I write wedding place names, address envelopes, calligraphy wedding readings and vows as keepsakes and wedding day gifts, and design bespoke wedding stationery for intimate weddings.

One of my favourite styles for calligraphy suites and wedding stationery this year is pale grey, graceful lettering with a hint of days gone by. I love to write in the style of an old love letter: casual, flowing scripts with elegance and old English charm.

Huge thanks to lovely Natasha from Pumpkin & Pye for sharing her gorgeous boutonnière design with us – I adore the flowers, which go perfectly with the stunning rose and serenity bouquet project we featured a few weeks back. Natasha used gorgeous silk flowers from Afloral.com. The boutonnière is just the most adorable creation and looks so much fun to make. I hope you love it as much as I do!

The wedding industry is a creative place – full of independent businesses, designers, photographers who inspire me every single day. I love seeing new ideas for wedding styling in the styled shoots we feature here on the English Wedding Blog – but it’s something new for a photographer to reinvent the styled shoot itself… this is such an excellent idea!

Hampshire photographer Jennifer Sinclair and Gemma from Little Star Events were part of a wedding fair at Alton House this spring, and brought creative suppliers and designers together on the day for a styled shoot with some gorgeous bridal (and bridesmaid!) looks for spring.

My best friend from school gets married next weekend and I really can’t wait for the day. It’s going to be all kinds of amazing! 🙂 I love that they’ve chosen to have a spring wedding: there is something enchanting about this time of year, don’t you think?

Visually, spring is just so beautiful. Blossom is all around; seasonal bouquets include lovely tulips, anemones and muscari (some of my absolute favourites) and your venue’s gardens will be starting to burst into life. You may be lucky enough to find a carpet of bluebells or even primroses for your wedding pics, and in late spring there’ll be wisteria-covered walls and beautiful magnolias creating the most colourful, natural backdrops for your portraits.
