Autumn is an amazing time to be married – the colours of the season are super inspiring and there are so many incredible ways to style your day. Today I’m thrilled to be featuring some gorgeous autumn wedding inspiration from the lovely team at Aspire Photography Training. Their styled shoots are wonderful; I was lucky enough to be there for this shoot (you’ll spot my calligraphy here and there!) and I LOVE it.

The colours are bold and striking; contrasting soft blue tones with autumn colours works wonderfully. Vibrant orange cocktails and burnt whisky colours look stunning; combining berries with feathers and textured props is a delight!

The calligraphy was written in shades of orange; I used a handmade paper with white lettering for the invitation and place names, while quotes and poems are striking in amber shaded inks.

Have you ever wondered what makes your wedding photographer tick? Why choose photography as a career, and why weddings? And how do you know your photographer will work their heart out to capture your day and get the most amaaaazing photos for you to remember it by? Our lovely friend Sheryl has a story to share with you…

wedding styled shoot copper sequins oobaloos photography-44

“I would like to introduce you to ‘us’ – the creative types, the artists – A huge… ‘Hi’!!

I am coming to you now from the photographic side of weddings – but I used to be a professional dancer/actress in London theatres and also abroad. I then moved into teaching and personal training, and finally settled down with my husband, a musician/songwriter and together we had a little boy called Bailey.

After leaving ‘The Arts’, I always felt that it had left a peculiar void in me – something deep in my heart and soul that wasn’t fully satisfied. It was nothing at all to do with my home life, solely to do with the inventive and artistic side of my personality.

Today’s real wedding, my gorgeous blog-loving friends, is spectacular. If there was a bigger word for spectacular which included amazing, beautiful, creative, artisan, and elegant, I’d be using that word. But sometimes… beauty is too big for any word. Here’s our stunning bride, Jessica. She looks incredible, doesn’t she?!

Jessica married Matthew at one of our favourite venues, the fabulous Launcells Barton in Cornwall.

Newly launched as a wedding venue, it’s fast becoming a wedding blog favourite (with features on Rock My Wedding, Boho Weddings and of course the English Wedding Blog).

A true labour of love, Launcells Barton was a major restoration project for owners Lara and Matthew, who have turned this place into a dream venue for all kinds of weddings. It’s welcoming, a little rustic and wonderfully boho, and Jessica & Matthew’s wedding made the very best of every little bit of such a fabulous venue.

He’s proposed, it was the most surreal and beautiful moment of your life, you said yes (it was always going to be yes!) Life can’t get much better right now and the future is filled with exciting promise and limitless opportunities.

Then it begins…… where to have the ceremony, will it be church or civil? At the same venue as the reception or local registry office? Home or abroad? The start of a very long list of things to decide upon.

Many a consultation has seen me chatting to brides who have had to spend money rectifying earlier mistakes simply because the excitement of planning a wedding has completely run away with her (one client bought 4, yes 4 different wedding dresses!).

Don’t get me wrong – what bride to be isn’t excited? I would certainly be concerned if you weren’t – but with a few simple hacks, wedding planning can be an efficient and streamlined process (with minimal stress!) and a touch easier on the pocket.

You know when something is so beautiful it takes your breath away? When you’re captivated by an image which stays in your mind for days, weeks even? I’ve been sharing sneak peeks of today’s ethereal bridal inspiration shoot across all of my social media for weeks… and the haunting aesthetic steals my heart every time I catch a glimpse of the images.

All photos are by Susan Arnold Photography

Every inspiration shoot is based around a theme. Ours was a bride yearning for her love to return to her: a love so strong her belief could never fade, never wane. This timeless aesthetic fits beautiful with the location of the shoot: the crumbling walls of Scadbury’s moated manor.

There’s a haunting beauty to this place. It evokes a certain atmosphere of solitude and timelessness. Our bride waits for her lover to return, cradling his words in a wistful, romantic and endlessly inspiring setting. Emily Bronte would have fallen hard for this enchanting manor…

Vintage should mean something. Vintage for me is so much more than a pretty theme; it’s finding pieces with their own story to tell – heirlooms, treasures and trinkets with real meaning. You can’t buy vintage in Debenhams – but discovering the true meaning of vintage is a journey many of us fall in love with. Today’s shoot is one to cherish: the wedding dress belonged to lovely Helen’s mum, and so this is a very personal inspiration piece which has me falling in love with it all the more.

The inspiration for this shoot has been staring me in the face for my entire life, every time I opened the wardrobe door of my parents’ bedroom in the house in which I was born. My parents married in March 1957 in Birmingham, my home town. They were both 22 years old and mad about each other. They were still mad about each other in 2007 which was the year of their 50th anniversary and the year in which my mum passed away.

Annie and Chris had a truly unique wedding – they know some amazing people and through friends they were able to marry at London’s fabulous Lyric Theatre – which gave their wedding so much personality and atmosphere, it’s just fabulous! The flowers are bright and colourful, styling is elegant and theatrical… and today’s bride and groom are as gorgeous as they are lovely. Images are by Sussex photographer Neil Walker.

We used bright spring colours for our flowers – peaches, lilacs, yellows & pinks. James from Detta Phillips is brilliant – they looked spectacular.

Don’t miss Chris and Annie’s wise advice (and genuine supplier recommendations) for you lovely lot, which you’ll find just after the photos if you scroll through the full feature today. “We designed and made our wedding stationery ourselves. It was a really enjoyable experience and we were really proud of our handiwork once they were finished. We made place cards and table plan in the same style as the invitations. Our navy & burgundy spotty theme ran throughout from the save the dates to the orders of ceremony and menus. We also designed print-outs of readings and songs to frame & sign with messages as thank you gifts.

This is what we at English Wedding Blog HQ call a wow wedding. A wow wedding is when we gasp, shout back at our screens and can’t stop grinning. It’s gorgeous – the images, the bride & groom, the bouquet (double wow!) and the styling of the reception… just amazing!

“I work as a designer so I loved creating the details for our special day. My dad built the chalkboards and easels for me which I decorated with the chalk pens by hand. My parents, brother, aunt, uncle and husband patiently assisted me with with the set up the day before – I knew exactly how I wanted to arrange the table wreaths, candles and vintage bottles and they were so kind to put up with me being obsessive over the placement of everything as I could mere have completed it in time myself!”

Our favourite is Peony for its flowing shape and beautiful movement. The delicate shoulders are perfect for a summer celebration, don’t you think? Clemmie teams vintage inspired lace with a flowing figure, while Ivy is classic, timeless… yet with captivating detail and a contemporary neckline.

Today tells the story of Roberto and Angelina, childhood sweethearts from the historical town of St Ives. They spent their teenage years having picnics by the river, taking long walks and watching the sun set over the Cambridgeshire countryside. After leaving the family home to follow his dream of traveling the world, Roberto returned five years later with a desperate need to see Angelina again. Even across the oceans his heart never left hers.  Now back, he vowed that if he ever left again, he would take her with him as his wife.

Our wedding was a mixture of a village fete and a 1930s edwardian carnival. It sort of evolved once I had picked the dress and the invites had been designed. The majority of suppliers were recommendations from Facebook, Pinterest and trawling through the internet.

We did everything ourselves with the help of friends. The village hall came with lovely old wooden chairs and tressel tables. We put these in the marquee and then added our detail. Our wedding invites were made into place mats and guests were given colouring pencils to show their artistic talents.
