Today’s editorial feature is simply divine. I adore the natural colour palette, the earthy styling and dramatic florals – this is the perfect combination of grace and organics, and I hope you will love it as much as I do!

I’ve heard some criticism of styled shoots recently (did you catch me on The Icing On The Cake podcast this week and last? Zoe did a brilliant job putting together interviews with me and Kat from Rock n Roll Bride where we shared our thoughts on wedding planning, trends and styled shoots! It’s worth a listen!) – namely that they can be too aspirational and expensive to recreate for a full scale wedding.  Today’s shoot on the English Wedding Blog is perfect to me because the look is achievable: it’s beautiful in simplicity, the table arrangements are perfect for a display area being wild and natural, and the look created is laid back, uncomplicated and frankly a beautiful breath of fresh air.

Hello lovelies! Did you catch today’s beautiful bridal inspiration feature from Somerley House with our fabulous new sponsor Weddings by Jenna Hewitt? If you weren’t around when I hit publish please do pop over for a look – it’s one of the most breathtaking shoots we’ve featured this year. If you did catch the feature, you’ll know we promised something rather special this afternoon…

The editorial film by English Wedding Directory member Baxter and Ted brings a whole new dimension to this styled shoot, and totally convinces me that having your wedding filmed is such a fabulous treat if your budget will allow. The fine art, almost film look of the editorial is simply beautiful. I am also totally in love with the last, slightly edgier bridal look from the shoot (which we didn’t include this morning).

“Shot in the stables, this was the most dramatic look with hair accessorised with a handmade piece by Victoria Millesime.  For this look I chose a gown from Luella’s Bridal that was clean in cut with simple fine straps and a beautiful dropped back, paired with bridal mules from Emmy London.” ~ Jenna Hewitt

Somerley Estate sits right on the Dorset and Hampshire borders and is the stunning backdrop for this inspiration shoot.  A privately owned home and wedding venue, the house was designed in 1750 and has been in the Normanton family for five generations.  Somerley is gorgeous, (very) grand and has a lot of history.  With this shoot I wanted to bring a little piece of understated contemporary style to blend with the traditional luxury surroundings.

The colour palette combined grey with teal and soft apricot and I chose to blend silks by Kate Cullen with contemporary acrylic and copper materials.

The stationery was beautifully designed by Georgina Read Creative, on cotton combination paper with torn edges and featured a lovely copper seal detail. In fact this was one of my favourite details!  The stamp used was THE Somerley stamp and is hundreds of years old.
