“When I first saw this beautiful wedding dress by Watters at Agape Bridal Boutique, I was completely smitten! The nude colour tone and the tulle ruffles – it was so feminine and different!

“We just had to create a shoot based entirely around this dress not only for our own creative fun but also to showcase it!

“The English Countryside setting was perfect with the wild buttercups and luscious tall grass and this gave us the idea of a bouquet which looked like wild flowers that had been handpicked.

We then had the idea of scattering some of the pink lisianthus blooms along the skirt of the dress.

Wedding flowers have changed – I could dive into a bouquet these days and live there for a week: the organic and creative florals I see on blogs are out of this world.

My most recent discovery is the fabulous Forage & Blossom – and I asked lovely Alice to tell us a little about her world. It’s all kinds of enchanting…

Forage and Blossom by name and by nature.

I’m Alice, the founder of Forage and Blossom Flowers. I am a floral designer with an artistic background inspired by all things organic, off-beat and botany based.

My designs are influenced by the wild forms of the natural world and I like to bring in depth with scent, foliage and texture. I love to embrace the natural kinks and flairs of flowers and allow the blooms to flaunt themselves. If a flower has a particularly weird bend in its stem, its a definite keeper! I enjoy creating designs with natural fluidity and movement; each arrangement is as unique as the flowers within it.

There are a few wedding photographers whose style is so unique it’s unmistakeable. Catharine Noble Photography is one. Images are distinctly delicate, light and fresh – they have a magic I recognise instantly and yet can’t put my finger on. Catharine and James are an amazing team, and I’m over the moon to be sharing this very different – and beautiful – adventure of theirs with you.

We went to the beautiful Agapé Bridal Boutique recently to capture their Temperley London Trunk Show! The collection was AMAZING – The divine fabrics in the finest lace, silk and chiffons and the way it drapes and hangs so perfectly! The intricate details, patterns and embellishments are exquisite and unmatched by any we have seen!

Temperley is one of our absolute favourite wedding dress designers, we love that it’s a British label and thought it would be perfect for the English Wedding blog because they too are pretty, English and full of personality!
