One of the best things about writing my wedding blog is getting to know people in the industry. As a calligrapher I ‘meet’ other suppliers online, and as a blogger I’ve met some really amazing wedding suppliers from all walks of life. I was honoured to be involved in a ‘quintessentially English’ wedding photo shoot with Fiona Campbell this summer, and I’m delighted to be able to welcome Fiona as a new sponsor of the English Wedding Blog.

Fiona told me how important it is to find a wedding photographer you can trust, get along with and relate to. “You need a lovely person to have around you on an incredibly special day and to help make things easy.”

She says, “When you book me you get excellent equipment, insurance, backup and, of course, my lovely personality. My particular strength is helping to reassure people in front of the camera. I always work with a second shooter to make sure I can be in two places at once.


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.
