I have a rare gem of an editorial shoot to share with you today, lovelies – a dreamy screenful of images which will warm your heart and bring sunshine to your soul. Maybe photoshoots are missing a trick by not capturing the sheer joy of a wedding: but today we set that to rights with the most beautiful girl in a truly incredible setting, smiling and enjoying every second of her day…

The styling touches are exquisite, fine art luxury and I would encourage you to take inspiration from them to style your own wedding: whether you fall in love with the peony and rose bouquet, the show stopping Ersa Atelier gown or those glorious deep blue candles – take a little of this carefully curated shoot with you today and let it shine onto your own wedding day, do.

All images are by Elina Sazonova – a full supplier list is at the end of the feature

Pastels are our favourite wedding palette – they have been for years and I doubt that will ever change. But it’s easy to forget there’s a gentle rainbow of pastel colours encompassing everything from palest dusky pinks through to barely-there olive greens, dove greys and soft corals… because pastel doesn’t only mean pink.

Today’s shoot puts forward a beautiful and very strong case for delicate blue pastel hues. The key colour is Serenity, which works well all year round; for cool winter weddings and soft pastel spring and summer ones. It gives you the ‘something blue’ and is incredibly calming, delicate and outrageously pretty, whilst maintaining that elegant feel.
