I love this idea! A group of local wedding suppliers coming together to create something inspiring, with no preconceptions, no rules, just creative freedom… and the result is a stunning shoot with a fabulous tablescape and tons of gorgeous greenery. This is wonderful.

I’m not usually a sneak-peeker… but sometimes I simply can’t resist, and I’m sure many of you will have seen images from this shoot on the English Wedding Blog before! Today, a treat: a full styled shoot with too many amazing ideas to count, all the way from Knighton House in Dorset. I love the richness of the flowers; the warmth and welcoming style of the venue itself, and the feathers and berries used to bring together a beautiful wedding style.

The overall look for the shoot was inspired by Knighton House’s surroundings; the striking colours of autumn on the tree-lined driveway, the foliage and feathers of the local game hunting season and the rich heritage of the house itself. Although the ‘country’ theme is rustic by nature the styling retained an air of elegance befitting the surroundings of Knighton House.

Did you know the English Wedding Blog has been a top UK wedding blog since 2011? Time flies when you’re having fun… and I’m constantly surprised by the new suppliers I discover here. Today it’s an incredible venue: Weymouth’s Nothe Fort, where a group of creative Dorset wedding suppliers got together to style one of the best shoots I’ve seen this year!

Lovely Rachel from Exquisitely You wedding & event specialists got in touch to share the shoot with me. I love the way the pretty details contrast with the backdrop of the fort – an old military base (and while I’m a pacifist through and through, there’s something thrilling in seeing a war base taken over and put to better use!) The cake is divine; the flowers super pretty and the balloons and big letters perfectly on trend for a summer wedding!
