Hey lovelies! I have something special for all of you crafty brides and grooms – I’ve launched a nice chunky handful of NEW modern calligraphy workshops for 2019, and one of them will be ESPECIALLY for wedding calligraphy. This is the first workshop of its kind in the UK (or anywhere, as far as I know!) and will focus on helping you create beautifully lettered items for your wedding.

If you’re tying the knot in 2019, have crafty tendencies and love lettering, then this is going to be the perfect workshop for you! Why not bring along your bridesmaids, or your mum or your other half – and I’ll introduce you to beautiful modern calligraphy so you can design gorgeous goodies for your wedding day!

Two words I’ve been hearing quite often as we approach 2019 are ‘heirloom’ and ‘heritage’ – brides and grooms are looking more to our culture and history than ever before, for inspiration for wedding styling. ‘Vintage’ as a source of wedding ideas is still hugely popular, with couples now looking for venues with their own character and unique history. So this inspirational feature from Doxford Hall has to be one of my favourite shoots of ALL TIME! It’s a perfect fit for English Wedding too of course, with a nod to Jane Austen and such delightful styling touches! The calligraphy is mine – I’m so proud to have been a part of such a beautiful photoshoot (and my paper goodies get to visit such wonderful places!)

Earlier in the year I joined forces with the team at Lakes & Cumbria Wedding Magazine to launch their very first issue – and we had an absolute blast, creating a stunning cover shoot with ultraviolet stationery and florals. This year has passed by in a whirlwind, but I wanted to tell all of you beautiful people about the magazine before issue 2 comes out in the autumn!

It’s the first time I’ve worked hand in hand with magazine publishers, and the girls working on the magazine are such lovely, enthusiastic and happy people I enjoyed every second of the process!

Wivenhoe House in Essex is a beautiful contradiction of two worlds: historic grandeur and sleek contemporary lines. For wedding guest accommodation it looks stunning; for celebrating your day with loved ones its modern garden room provides chic and elegant styling while the historic house has old English character – ideal for romantic wedding photography.

Our lovely friend and Essex wedding photographer Ayshea Goldberg spent a beautiful day at Wivenhoe photographing this stunning wedding editorial to share with us.

The contemporary garden room inspired the modern styling of Luca’s Cakes wedding cake – a showstopper if ever I saw one! – while the beautiful gowns, blousy florals and romantic colour palette are timeless and ultra feminine.
