I remember saying at the beginning of the year that I wanted to be involved in more styled shoots. I nailed it… I’ve been sending calligraphy samples to photographers all around the country (and a couple to Dubai, even!) and had some amazing images sent back to me. But the best thing to come out of this year is working alongside the team at Aspire Photography Training and all of our wonderful friends (you know who you are!). I get to share their gorgeous shoots with you – and they really are a whole world of inspiring.

This image is a sneak peek from a styled shoot at Aspire Photography Training – and I was there with my calligraphy. There’s a little more here for you to see…

I don’t say thank you often enough. I would love to be someone who lights up people’s days by sending surprise thank you cards… but time runs away with me and I rush from one project to another. Even as I write this, I’m making a note in my calendar to ‘say thank you’ to someone once a month! After all, the English Wedding Blog wouldn’t exist without so many wonderful suppliers sharing their images, tips and advice here – I have a LOT of people to thank!

This summer we’ve all been in love with boho bridal style… relaxed and ethereally pretty hair and make up, flowing gowns and lush greenery. It’s the biggest trend to hit weddings since vintage, and our love affair with boho is here to stay.

I adore the boho wedding style – the casual approach to styling with nature at the forefront. Leaves and flowers are BIG, and that means you can play with luscious colour combinations everywhere from your hair to your cake and stationery.

Italian wedding styled shoot Aspire Photography Training (2)

Mary-Kate had no idea she’d return from Venice with a ring on her finger… she was modelling along with her boyfriend Lee for a styled wedding shoot in Italy, having the experience of a lifetime which she probably didn’t think could get any better.

She was in for the most amazing surprise…

Today I bring you the most delicious shoot I could ever dream of showing you! I’ve been working alongside the lovely team at Aspire Photography Training recently, writing little bits of calligraphy and helping super stylist Yasmin with wedding shoot plans. It’s really exciting.
