Today’s shoot is more than beautiful – the images will help you style a gorgeously green, natural and enchantingly English wedding. I was there on the day of this wedding inspiration shoot: walking in the woodland as the sun rose through the trees was perfect. As we set up our table a deer wandered past; the sounds and smells of the woodland were all around us. The images capture the essence of the English woodland, the tranquility and beauty inspired by nature.

Today – a sneak peek, never before seen anywhere else in the world, at a brand new wedding stationery collection. We’re talking metallic gold calligraphy which reflects beautifully in sunlight. The richest of green papers, perfect for your boho or woodland wedding – or even to suit a more traditional celtic themed wedding day. Take a look, and if you love what you see, I’ll be sharing more soon.

I found my way into the world of weddings via my penchant for old pens, bottles of ink and love of everything papery. Who knew my love for beautiful lettering would bring me to the pages of the English Wedding Blog, and be my introduction to such a creative and exciting industry? Ten years since the launch of Calligraphy for Weddings, I stumble across my lettering on some of the hottest wedding blogs in the world – and I love working on every single commission and project I’m asked to be a part of.

Katie and Sam’s November wedding is traditional, elegant and still has the loveliest home made touches: the gorgeous couple married at Sussex favourite Pangdean Barn. From Katie’s veil to the place settings, every detail came together perfectly – and I’m thrilled for lovely Katie and Sam (who I got to know in the run up to their big day) that it turned out so beautifully.

I was chatting with a friend yesterday and the words “like a princess” came into our conversation – and we chuckled. Neither of us are princessy girls… and yet, doesn’t everyone want to be the centre of someone’s universe sometimes?

That feeling of “like a princess” applies to relationships as much as it does to weddings. I’ve heard so many stories from brides-to-be finding their dress: ‘The One” – and having that princess feeling! Until now I’ve always felt a little apart from that; I’m no Cinderella, I’ve never worn a cocktail dress or ballgown – it just isn’t me. And when it comes to wedding dresses, I’d go as alternative as I could get away with!
