Hello lovelies! Did you catch today’s beautiful bridal inspiration feature from Somerley House with our fabulous new sponsor Weddings by Jenna Hewitt? If you weren’t around when I hit publish please do pop over for a look – it’s one of the most breathtaking shoots we’ve featured this year. If you did catch the feature, you’ll know we promised something rather special this afternoon…

The editorial film by English Wedding Directory member Baxter and Ted brings a whole new dimension to this styled shoot, and totally convinces me that having your wedding filmed is such a fabulous treat if your budget will allow. The fine art, almost film look of the editorial is simply beautiful. I am also totally in love with the last, slightly edgier bridal look from the shoot (which we didn’t include this morning).

“Shot in the stables, this was the most dramatic look with hair accessorised with a handmade piece by Victoria Millesime.  For this look I chose a gown from Luella’s Bridal that was clean in cut with simple fine straps and a beautiful dropped back, paired with bridal mules from Emmy London.” ~ Jenna Hewitt

A few weeks ago I shared the most charming luxe barn wedding inspiration from Cornwall with you – the wonderful, cosy lighting and sumptuous bouquet were so popular on our Instagram and I just can’t help coming back to this shoot over and over again. So I’m thrilled to be able to share something gorgeous with you today – a highlights film by lovely Baxter & Ted to transport you lovely people to Cornwall for another look. Those breathtaking views…

“The Cow Shed is a beautiful, unique venue located on the Rame peninsula in Cornwall – full of rustic beauty, rural romance and a perfect location for small, intimate weddings.” ~ Baxter & Ted

There’s something so magical about winter – and if you marry in the colder months of the year you’ll have plenty of opportunity to make your day unique. Today’s shoot uses some more unusual winter styling touches – I adore the twigs and white cotton balls – alongside traditional pine cones and plenty of sparkle! This gorgeous mini film by Baxter & Ted adds a unique flavour to winter wedding styling – I hope you love it!

Today’s blog is full of country charm for those of you planning a winter wedding. White orchids, obligatory pine cones, adorable little white cotton balls and handcrafted table centrepieces make today’s shoot magical. The bride and groom are real: they eloped last summer but had no photographs taken of the day. The intimacy of today’s blog captures their love as well as the romance of an intimate winter wedding – and I love it.
