It breaks my heart to be selling my little Vespa this spring… but at the same time it makes me smile to see this gorgeous shoot on the blog today with a vintage Vespa looking so beautiful and ready for adventures! If you’ve already flicked through the pages of our FREE digital magazine the English Wedding Bible you’ll recognise this…
The English Wedding Blog covers every style you can imagine – from boho tipi festival weddings to coastal elopements, luxury city celebrations and the classic, English country house wedding day. I like to think we have something for everyone: today’s feature has that wonderful elegance so many of you are looking for as you plan your wedding style. The images are by lovely Eva Tarnok (who also features on page 140 of the English Wedding Bible with another breathtaking inspirational piece) – and styling is by lovely Katie from The Events Designers.
Somerley Estate sits right on the Dorset and Hampshire borders and is the stunning backdrop for this inspiration shoot. A privately owned home and wedding venue, the house was designed in 1750 and has been in the Normanton family for five generations. Somerley is gorgeous, (very) grand and has a lot of history. With this shoot I wanted to bring a little piece of understated contemporary style to blend with the traditional luxury surroundings.

Eva Tarnok is a wedding photographer I love to work with: she’s taken some of the most beautiful images of my calligraphy; she has a love for the kind of pretty which perfectly suits a quintessentially English wedding.
Today’s inspiration is just so lovely: Morden Hall is a classic setting and needs little extra decor. Spring flowers and a pastel cake covered in tumbling, delicate foliage and pretty blooms set the scene, along with my calligraphy. The dress is pure romance… Kate Edmonson has something uniquely beautiful, don’t you think?

Baby, it’s cold outside… but you know, I’m still loving snuggly jumpers and sneaky hot chocolates and evening cuddles… winter has a spirit all of its own and I’m in no hurry to see the end of these chilly, beautiful days. But I’m biased: I’ve been completely and utterly won over by today’s gorgeous winter wedding inspiration. The word wonderland was made for the beauty you’re about to see… a combination of a luxe winter wonderland with a hint of silver, fluffy cotton candy, and geode crystals.
