I’ve been waiting for so long to share this wedding inspiration blog with you! It’s rare that I get a sneak peek of what’s behind the scenes at a shoot myself… but this time I had insider info (which I’m about to share) on one of the most inspiring and creative projects you’ll see all year!

Think Once Upon A Time, only better. Think of fairytales with real danger and drama – there’s no Disney princess here, but a stunning bride and a glamorous temptress. Think of your woodland wedding theme, a quintessentially English wedding day with china and delicate floral crowns and decor, exquisite stationery and dresses to die for.

My huge thanks and hugs to the very wonderful Fiona Campbell Photography and Kat Forsyth Photography who worked together to create this shoot at Owlpen Manor wedding venue. Co-stars include Calligraphy for Weddings (me!), Mrs Terrence (vintage porcelain), Ivy Pip and Rose (flowers), Peggy Porschen (cake), and Wedding Floral Archway Hire. Dresses are from The State of Grace, Miss Bush Bridal Wear, and Faith Caton Barber. The shoot was styled by Lady Amy Wedding Design and make up is by Nina Singh.


How can I introduce today’s English Wedding blog feature? Well… it’s for me. It’s a bridal shoot that I want to be in. Or maybe I want to be it. It’s striking, stunning, different and inspiring. It’s a confidence thing, about nature and being in your element. It’s about being a gorgeous bride and therefore beautiful. (All photo credits: Rings n Veils wedding photography)

Bridal shoot wedding photography blog by Rings n Veils (1)It’s about fairytales. But not fairytales with a simpering princess who needs rescuing… fairytales with a strong princess, a gorgeous heroine who’ll have an adventure all of her own and win your heart. A fairytale, perhaps, where the forces of nature are enchanting and captivating and mother nature plays a vital role.

I love fairytales – my dad brought me up on fantasy fiction and I love stories like this. When I saw this bridal shoot from Rings n Veils wedding photographers I had to have it on the blog. Because for me, this is every heroine I admire. And it’s an inspiring shoot, I think, for every creative bride out there!
