Good morning lovelies! I have a beautiful and very different idea to share with you this morning: a bridal boudoir photoshoot, which was sent in by English Wedding member Emily Andrew Events. Bridal boudoir photography is a lovely idea, I think: there are many female wedding photographers around who do boudoir photography as a confidence boost (and I’ve seen such wonderful reviews of this experience!). Perhaps you’ll find time on your wedding morning to do this; perhaps it’s something you can arrange before the big day. Either way, I hope you’ll find today’s feature inspiring and Emily’s words thought-provoking. The images by Valentine Studio are wonderfully romantic and feminine.
Did you have an amazing weekend? I’ve been teaching calligraphy and general pottering around whenever the sun peeped out… And this week I have a stack of wedding invitations and place names to write, so it’s going to be pretty busy at English Wedding HQ. Of course we also have gorgeous wedding pretty to share with you, starting with this stunner of an editorial shoot sent in by Emily Andrew Events. You may have seen a sneak preview of this one in the English Wedding Bible (and if you haven’t, do grab your FREE copy here!) – today we’re delving into all the details of this breathtaking shoot at an intriguing Norfolk wedding venue.

I hate to say it but more often than not bridesmaids can be one of the largest causes of stress my clients face when planning their big day! Number one of the issues is clothing! These are my top pieces of advice I give my clients to help them navigate this minefield.
First up is budget. If you are really tight on budget then it can be an option to ask your best ladies to provide their own outfits. If you select this option then always approach this topic sensitively with your friends as when they were asked to be a bridesmaid they were probably expecting to be provided with a lovely dress.
Choosing which photoshoots to feature on the blog sometimes comes down to something as simple as a smile. Lovely Emily sent me a handful of pics from this shoot, and instantly I knew it would be amazing for the blog – because I was smiling happily back at my screen. And also, flowers. Oh, those flowers!!! It’s perfect… and if you need inspiration for any little bridesmaids, their smiles will prove this is such a fun and unique way of styling princesses of all ages on your wedding day!
