Coastal wedding ideas in Cornwall with Andrea Kuehnis Photography (16)

To celebrate my birthday earlier this year we spent a week exploring the Cornish coast – fabulous sunsets, glorious beaches and dramatic scenery made it one of the most amazing holidays I’ve ever known. So today’s wedding inspiration has my heart (and a little of my calligraphy! Thank you Andrea!), and I hope you love it too!Claire

One of my most favorite places is Cornwall. I found myself stunned by the beauty, the wild coast, the cold water and the wild wind, and also the rain! Cornwall is inspiring, and popular with so many famous novelists who lost their hearts to its natural beauty.

The key to styling your wedding in 2017 will be mixed colour palettes. I have the huge pleasure of working with many talented wedding stylists, and they all have an instinct for combining gorgeous colours to create inspiring and pretty wedding themes. Today I wanted to show you some beautiful ideas for one of the hottest colours in weddings: blush pink.

The girls at Aspire Photography Training put together this stunning styled shoot full of blush pink wedding ideas. Combining lush textures and materials (I just adore the wood & silk ribbon combo, don’t you?!) they styled a fabulous tablescape around a blush pink theme.


Today’s styled shoot is a favourite – I’m biased, because I’m a little bit in it (tooo exciting!) and also because the creative team behind the images are super lovely friends from the north west. Emma Billsborough is an amazing photographer, a fabulous person and a friend I’ve known through the English Wedding Blog for years – and this shoot is one of the most exciting projects of my year.

Emma brought together a fantastic group of north west wedding creatives to show couples how to style a day with colour. Mixed palettes don’t have to be soft and subtle, they can be bold and exciting and still ooze grace and elegance.


This summer has been wonderful already. I’ve written for some amazing couples, worked on fabulous projects for wedding signage and stationery, and designed calligraphy suites for some of my favourite photographers. Tomorrow I’m teaching a calligraphy workshop in Manchester and we have another (booking up fast!) on the 19th of August. If you’d like to come along, you can book places in my Etsy shop now. But first… a few little notes about using calligraphy for your wedding day.


Good morning lovely blog friends! I hope you’ve had the most amazing weekend and are ready for some fabulous wedding style ideas this week – we have some gorgeous real weddings, styled shoots and advice features coming up over the next few days for you to enjoy! But first… the loveliest thing I could find to begin a perfect week for us all…
