Soooo… I’m not a fan of faceless hotels as wedding venues. I love nothing more than quirky, unusual and unexpected wedding venues… old cinemas and theatres, beaches, donkey sanctuaries (yes, really!) and heritage railways are the future! I have photographic proof… you’re going to LOVE this!

Choose high tiers and elegant icing for your neoclassical wedding cake

Style your wedding cake with straight lines, architectural details and alabaster colours… this beautiful white tiered wedding cake brings to mind the architecture of Greece and Rome with high tiers and softest white icing. Details are kept to a minimum with elegant clusters of the thinnest sugarpaste flowers. By Krishanthi – www.cakesbykrishanthi.co.uk

Have you heard of floriography? No? Along with tablescapes and ombre you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a new wedding buzz word, but it comes from the Victorians – whose style we’re fast falling in love with for 2014 and 2015 weddings. Today I have the most amazing shoot to share with you – full of luxurious style ideas you can use to create your own elegant Victorian wedding style.

Your wedding can be the most magical, creative adventure. Styling ideas to fit your personalities can bring self-discovery and uncover talents you never knew you had!

wedding ideas shoot Cliveden House (9)

I was honoured to be asked to contribute to a styled wedding shoot at Cliveden House, organised by the very lovely Petra Opperman. Petra is a wedding designer and planner based in Windsor, and is the talented stylist behind this gorgeous ideas shoot. The concept alone is incredibly romantic – and will resonate with music lovers everywhere. I adore the rich, luscious colours and subtle influence of the classical music theme. The colours are rich and warm, perfectly suited to any sophisticated wedding venue.
