Your wedding can have luxe styling, romantic florals and pretty details even with a more industrial, city backdrop. There’s something I really love about contrasting an urban setting with feminine decor, and today’s styled shoot is simply fabulous.

This styled shoot was inspired by the growing trend in urban feel weddings in London but with brides wanting to maintain that luxurious and stylish feel. Watercolour touches added softness to the industrial surroundings of Drake and Morgan at Kings Cross through the use of silk linens, stunning stationery and a beautifully water colour painted cake.

The use of herbs again brought a softer feel to the venue but also bought the outside in, something that can be important to brides if the venue they choose does not have its own green outdoor space.

It’s hugely important to me that the English Wedding Blog isn’t bossy; I’ll never try to dictate how a wedding ‘should’ look. Every shoot I feature is a suggestion, an inspiration and a collection of ideas to help you style your wedding. Today’s is a perfect example: photographer Aksela curated this lovely styled shoot with minimalism in mind.

“There’s no need to go overboard on wedding styling if you can choose a few beautiful statement pieces instead.”

Images are from Froyle Park in Hampshire, a magnificent manor and country house estate an hour outside London. Lovely Elisabeth from Amamini Flowers was first to show me the images, and I love the way she created elegant place settings and a beautifully textured bouquet for the shoot. Statement flowers are my favourite way to create a unique bridal look, and these are just fabulous!
