What’s the craziest wedding venue you can imagine… on top of a mountain, underwater (I’m kidding, who’d do that?!), a cave maybe? It’s fantastic to see couples really getting creative with venues and locations – with awareness of wedding celebrants growing, being able to have a quick legal ceremony at your registry office and then the most amazing day you could imagine – wherever you like, if it’s celebrant-led – is such an incredible opportunity.

Happy Friday lovelies! I hope you have exciting plans for the weekend ahead ? – but before we even get there, let’s make Friday AMAZING, shall we? I have a wonderfully tranquil and beautiful feature for you today. It’s all about sustainable wedding styling, and comes from (where else?) the fabulous River Cottage in Devon.

The shoot was perfectly styled by Claire and Vicky from Do Me A Favour. The stunning images are by lovely Laura at Freeformimages Photography. Laura’s website is a beautiful, vibrant and joyful little part of the internet and I wholeheartedly recommend you check her out – we LOVE her style here at English Wedding HQ! Laura’s here to tell you all about today’s editorial photoshoot. Enjoy!

I would love to see the guitar take the place of the vintage bicycle in wedding styling. Bikes kind of became a wedding thing about 5 years ago… and if we’re going to have random props as part of our wedding displays, I’d just love to see guitars take centre stage for a while! In today’s gorgeous shoot, they do.
