Glamorous Edinburgh wedding with Jade Osborne Photography (28)
FEATURED

Stunning bride Jill & Luke were married at Carlowrie Castle last year in a beautiful wedding full of glamour. Their minimal, elegant styling is wonderful – and set to be a big trend for 2018 / 2019 weddings! Jill wore a stunning Suzanne Neville gown and Jimmy Choo shoes, and Luke and his groomsmen were in black tie.  Jill’s bridesmaids wore matching cowl back gold sequin dresses and also had a bridesman wearing his tux with a gold sequin bow tie.

Our wedding florist was recommended to us by Jen at Carlowrie Castle, who had used Vickys Flowers for her own wedding. We had pure white gypsophila with white roses for my own bouquet. Bridesmaids carried pure white gypsophila, Luke’s buttonhole was a white rose, and the groomsmen’s buttonholes were pure white gypsophila. The ceremony table had a pure white gypsophila arrangement, with white pillar boxes that had tall vases with pure white gypsophila.

Today’s inspiration feature is wonderfully stripped back, individual and super beautiful – from a group of small independent wedding suppliers at Lainston House.

“We wanted to involve smaller independent suppliers, Karolina Grycko who made the cakes, White Designs BridalHampshire Slate, and Byootefel. Having the opportunity for them to work alongside established talent like Brides of WinchesterLittle Lillies and Hayley Savage Photography, who was our photographer for the day, was a great collaboration opportunity for everyone involved.

We choose Lainston House as the venue for the photo shoot, as it is the most beautiful backdrop and has such a variety of places to shoot. The woods in the ground were perfect for our “ceremony” and really captured the essence of the shoot; rustic, simple and about two people dedicating their lives to each other.

 


We asked Owen at Little Lillies for bouquets that were individual, wild and free. Giving him a brief colour palette to work with he came up with two absolutely stunning creations for our brides. Him working organically on location was a joy to witness!

Morning lovelies! Would you care to join me for a little trip back in time, courtesy of lovely Lemontree Photography? We’re talking art deco wedding inspiration (with a wonderful modern twist) and fabulous gowns by Charlie Brear, Suzanne Neville and Chanticleer. This is all kinds of beautiful and I hope you love it too!

“It was important to us as suppliers to use modern elements that had a certain ‘feel’ for the 1920’s era. We wanted to avoid using vintage clothing and hair accessories, which were unlikely to be available for purchase. We literally wanted couples to stumble across the shoot and perhaps piece together what they loved from it, helping them create their own art deco wedding theme.

Dresses from Chanticleer, Charlie Brear and Suzanne Neville provided that unique touch of being modern, yet with a certain ‘feel’ for the 1920s. Brides of Winchester provided the beautiful wedding gowns for the shoot.

I have a little treat for you this Sunday morning… so stay snuggled up with a cuppa and enjoy this pretty country garden celebration from Eastclose Hotel in the New Forest – the flowers are gorgeous, and Kerrie-Ann is breathtaking in her Suzanne Neville gown from Brides of Winchester.

Images are by Jake Moore Photography, who told me “having been to school with Kerrie-Ann it made it so much easier for me to shoot her day plus go more unnoticed than usual as a photographer. I felt more like a guest than at work! The venue is perfect for weddings and each time I go there it gets better with more detail added. The weather always helps as the grounds are too beautiful to miss out on a wedding day.”

Lovely Hayley from Brides of Winchester loves Suzanne Neville’s designs: “Kerrie-Ann looks ah-mazzing in Willow by Suzanne Neville, a stunning corded lace fishtail with beautiful buttons down the back, which she teamed to perfection with a sparkly cathedral length Helen Martin veil and Ivory and Co headpiece.”

The portraits from their day are some of my favourites: Ufton Court is a pretty special venue and one I’ve never featured before on the English Wedding Blog. I’m thrilled to be able to show you around it (virtually hehe) today!

Deciding not to have any particular theme, Louie and Jenny chose things they loved to add personality to their day: the Monopoly table plan is a highlight and the flowers are fabulous as well.

Morning everyone! I’d like to share this inspirational bridal shoot with you – inspired by ballet and described as “a photo shoot that is like no other“, it’s a stunningly beautiful fusion of ballet and weddings. It’s so good you might fall over.

I fell in love with this ballet bridal shoot instantly, and I’ve a feeling you’re going to love it just as much as I do. The shoot covers a wide range of eras including dresses and accessories from the 1920’s – 1950’s and was carried out at Rhinefield House Hotel in the New Forest. Two professional ballet dancers were the Brides for the day, and they were from wedding photographer Martin Bell‘s old ballet company – Northern Ballet. Martin is based in Hampshire and covers weddings across the UK and internationally. He is also a professional dance photographer. www.martinbell-photography.co.uk
