Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re relaxing and enjoying a peaceful day wherever you are (is anyone else watching back to back world cup matches? no? just me?! I have to admit I’m not really paying attention…) It’s very easy to be distracted with this much wedding pretty on my screen, to be honest… I’ve been excited to share Hannah and Ben’s wedding with you – it’s gorgeously full of spring styling, and brought to you by lovely Ashdown Park wedding photographer Damion Mower, who is based in Buckinghamshire. Hannah is absolutely stunning in her English Rose wedding dress, and Ben wears a tail suit in charcoal, looking every bit the dashing country gentleman!

In the church we had spring flowers which were arranged by the church’s florist. Our reception was in a converted chapel so we had stained glass windows all around. We had tall flower centre pieces and lights in a organza tulle wrapped around the bannisters. These little details really complimented the venue.

Usually it’s me who ruffles occasional wedding industry feathers – but it’s been a while and today’s feature is a reminder to me that I should never lose that particular edge! Let’s not forget that our industry, while it’s an amazing place to work, has a few faults here and there. I’ve been lucky to be involved in some incredible styled shoots this year, and I’ve been blessed with the fabulous suppliers I’ve met.

So has lovely San from Sanshine Photography – and she’s on my list of people I’d love to work with one day! In the meantime though, this needs saying…

Wedding suppliers take note! 5 basic rules of editorial shoot etiquette

The other week I had the pleasure of meeting some awesome people from the wedding industry at Genuine Cakes in Watford. The meet up was designed for us to network over a cup of coffee and a delicious piece of cake and exchange news and ideas, however towards the end of the session our pleasant chat turned into a passionate discussion on the topic of styled shoots. It has quickly become apparent that quite a few wedding industry professionals won’t even consider participating in styled shoots anymore because they got so badly burned before…

The last wedding I went to was going to be an outdoor wedding in the Lake District in August. It was such a shame for the bride and groom that it poured down that day… but if the sun had shone it would have been so beautiful. It still was, of course! But it was beautiful inside. In contrast, today’s English outdoor wedding on the blog is one of those days where the dream of a sunny wedding ceremony really did come true. Beautiful Hannah and Ben were blessed with gorgeous weather and their wedding day was magical.
