Two of the hottest trends for 2017/18 weddings are bridal separates and urban chic. Combining both gives a contemporary romance, an independence from traditional expectations and a beautiful individuality to wedding styling.

Today we’re featuring a shoot with the most exciting aesthetic: fabulously textured bouquets and florals with dark foliage and statement blooms, and those beautiful bridal separates by our new favourite designer Ailsa Munro. The shoot took place in Pembrokeshire – the locations and backdrops create images with a spirit which truly captures my heart, and the images of the skirt catching the breeze are outstanding…


Do you find wedding planning can be overwhelming sometimes? You’re not alone if you find you have a million questions to ask, about every aspect of your wedding. Organising a wedding isn’t something any of us do every day, it’s all new territory and a little crazy at times. I read so many questions from couples – do we need this? how does this work? and so often, why does this cost so much? It’s fine to ask! We have a lot of the answers here in our Advice archives.
