I jumped at the chance to feature this shoot because not only is it beautiful, it feels REAL. Let me explain. Styled photoshoots are a wonderful part of what wedding suppliers do. It’s a chance for creative minds to come together and bring their ideas to life, to inspire couples who are planning their weddings. But sometimes they’re so perfectly posed they feel unattainable, too beautiful. This one though, this made me smile. It’s vibrant and colourful, with simple styling touches and breathtaking florals. The dresses and jumpsuit (because we’ve 3 outfits to show you today!) are stunning – and model Dani wears them like the most joyful bride in the world. Her natural smile lights up these pages, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing this gorgeously achievable wedding inspiration with you today. Huge thanks to lovely Maddy from Wedding Paint for sharing this with us. The images are by talented local wedding photographer Sophie TC Photography, who introduces the shoot and styling touches below, explaining how it all came about. There’s a full supplier list for you to check out just below.
Winter is coming… and that phrase conjures up two things for me! The first is Game of Thrones – and me and my guy are rewatching every. single. episode. from the 1st season to the last… we started on Friday and I think we’ll be finished just in time for season 8 in May / June 2019! Winter also reminds me of snowy weddings, snuggly wraps and cosily beautiful wedding styling. So today I’m sharing a truly unique wedding from Lansdown Hall and Gallery in Stroud. Beautiful bride Jess and gorgeous groom Damian chose the venue because it’s very dear to their family, and organised everything themselves: decorations, lighting, DJ, the bar, outside catering, staff, setting up and clearing up. Take one look at their photos and you’ll see it was 100% worthwhile – it allowed them to plan and style their day exactly how they wanted. As well as the venue, highlights to watch out for are Jess’s E&W Couture dress, which is just perfect – and the bouquet of eucalyptus, white roses and pussy willow (my favourite!) by the wonderful Sweet Peony in Cardiff. The fabulous photos of Jess and Damian’s wedding are by UK photographer Jon Turtle, who’s based in Penarth, South Wales.
