Welcome to the first weekend of autumn! I’m hoping for a crisp sunny afternoon with hints of bronzed leaves and for cosy snuggles with my man and my favourite jumper. How about you? … Oh, but you’re here for wedding ideas so I’ve got a little treat up my (woolly!) sleeve for you this morning, with a gorgeous wedding from The Plough At Leigh. The stunning couple are Nikki and James, and their photographer is our newest sponsor, lovely Terence Joseph Photography.

We met Terence at an open day at The Plough, he was so friendly and knew the venue very well so it was an easy decision to make.

We couldn’t have been happier with Terence, he was very professional and had us and our guests feeling very relaxed and at ease. He even managed to photograph some family members that were set against having their photo taken. He was interested in what ideas and visions we had. I felt we clicked and it was such a pleasure to work with Terence, he was very thoughtful and couldn’t do enough for us from the beginning right through to when I met him to receive our beautiful album and canvas. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, he did an amazing job.

Hey lovely! How has your week been? I’m having a relaxing day after spending the week wrestling with my calligraphy website and uploading a bunch of brand new modern calligraphy workshops! Head over to http://calligraphy-for-weddings.com if you’d like to find out about those. And Bolton / north west brides and grooms, my next one will be at Smithills Hall on the 6th of October – we have places available and I’d love to see you there!

But onto today’s wedding – and forgive me for waffling because it is a STUNNER! Gorgeous couple Claire and Andy married at Trevenna Barns in April, choosing a rustic feel for their day with the most beautiful colourful flowers. It’s all so romantic and this pair are clearly SO much in love it almost bursts from my screen.

“Trevenna Barns really didn’t need much styling at all. I collected jam jars, lots of jam jars and wrapped hessian around them and used them to hang from the chairs down the aisle with flowers in them.

Brides-to-be! Grab a cuppa and get cosy because we have a real treat in store for you today! We’re talking FIVE different wedding dresses modelled around Chippenham Park‘s glorious gardens: there’s something here for every bride with boho, sophisticated, elegant, sexy and classy bridal looks in one of our favourite Cambridgeshire wedding venues.

The tones have a gentle autumnal feel to them – but that’s a happy accident as these images were taken in the springtime! The colour palette for today’s editorial is inspired by our lovely friend Heather Jackson Photography, who spent time in Holland this spring and wanted to incorporate the Dutch national colour of orange into a dreamy bridal shoot. I love this so much – I’m going to sit back and enjoy the beautiful video and images now, while Heather takes you through the styling and concepts of this wonderfully inspiring photo shoot.

“Chippenham Park has so many lovely possibilities to offer couples and I wanted to showcase these in differing ways around the venue.

Morning, beautiful! So today – a very special wedding and from a fabulous venue and one of my fave UK wedding photographers, Linus Moran Photography. Gorgeous bride and dapper groom Emma & Alex were married in Dorset on a wonderfully sunny day, and scrolling through their pics just makes me HAPPY! The florals (by West Dorset Wedding Flowers) are divine – this is an outdoor wedding which manages to capture the timelessness of a church wedding, with the couple saying their vows by a floral-covered stone archway. The styling is romantic and classic – it’s everything a quintessentially English wedding should be!

We initially found Linus through a recommendation from our venue. At the time we spoke to several photographers about capturing our big day. From the very first moment we talked to Linus, he was the right pick for us. He shared our vision and we couldn’t wait for him to photograph our wedding day.

Hey beautiful! Today’s wedding is a treat – an all-out floral feast in the simplest of colour schemes, with stunning images and a focus on family. This Mill Barns in Alveley wedding has pretty much everything – and I love the images, by Deborah at Stott Weddings. The styling and lighting makes this a really impressive day to share on the blog – with Perfectly Unique Occasions providing a floral arch and blossom canopy trees to style the ceremony and wedding breakfast tables. 

 

“The Mill Barns is a beautiful venue without much extra decoration needed and in beautiful surroundings too! However we chose Perfectly Unique occasions to dress the venue, which they did beautifully and it was truly stunning what they did! We chose our items beforehand but seeing it all together in the day was just incredible!

We made part of our favours ourselves, we had personalized m&ms in little jars for a little sweet treat for our guests! For the little guests at our wedding we made goody bags, with wedding crafts, activities, coloring, sweets and bubbles!

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re feeling cosy and loving the crisp autumn days now! Up here in the Lakes we have apples dropping on every country lane, it seems – and blackberries ripe for the picking in every hedgerow. It’s a wonderful time of the year. I saved up this gorgeous feature because it’s perfectly fitting as we turn towards the end of the year. The boho vibe truly embraces the bounty of nature, and the look is warming and blissfully beautiful. And those FLOWERS – oh my days, it’s too enchanting for words! There are lots and lots of ideas for you to Pin here – I hope you love it!

This Country Boho styled shoot was created with inspiration from the ever growing Boho trend and a beautiful rural farm location. For couples who are looking to create their own relaxed, outdoor Boho vibe we hope this concept shows simple and effective ideas for creating a top table set up, the blooming floral church archway, stunning photography and the finer details of pretty jewellery and wild meadow stationery.

Hey lovely blog readers! Didn’t the summer just fly by? I am happily settling into plans for autumn and looking forward to teaching FOUR modern calligraphy workshops in the coming months. Tickets are still available and I’d love to see you there!

Upcoming dates for my beginners calligraphy workshops are –

7th September – Nantwich, Cheshire
11th October – Manchester

If you fancy getting your craft on, come and join me! You’ll learn a wonderful skill (which you can use for your wedding!) and have a lovely relaxing day out. And every workshop is perfect for absolute beginners!

In each calligraphy class we’ll start with assembling a pen and spooning up ink. We’ll make flowy, swirly shapes and then letters and words. I’ll show you how, with demonstrations at every stage of the process. Best of all, you get to keep your modern calligraphy set at the end of the class! Included are your pen + nib, ink and worksheets.

So I think I’ve just about recovered from the bank holiday weekend.. and I have the sweetest, happiest wedding to share with you today!

Louise & Mark’s Devon wedding is vintage with a touch of boho – and tons of excitement and fun! From the moments before the ceremony I was hooked – and seeing Mark carry her down the aisle after they say their vows is just magical! The celebrations really kick in as guests travel together on a vintage bus to the reception venue. It’s a brilliant way for guests to get to know each other and really gets the party vibe going!

Louise’s vintage inspired knee length dress is just perfect for her – don’t miss the first dance part of the video, which makes this bride absolutely SHINE!

As you’ll see from their highlights film below, it was a magical ceremony too at St James church, Teignmouth.
