Choosing your wedding colours has turned into a fine art – and statement combinations make my heart sing. I love Jennifer Sinclair Photography for her styled shoots, and this latest seaside photoshoot in Bournemouth is right up my street. The colours are divine: rich autumn reds and the most delicate sea blues work so well together!

Jennifer told me, “We decided to do a mini-styled bridal shoot in Bournemouth just for fun.  We teamed up with Lily Waite who did an amazing job on the makeup and hair.  The flowers were just perfect for a winter themed shoot; thank you Lisa from Fleur De Lis for creating the beautiful bridal flowers.”

The blue of the sea, the pale golden sands and the cool stone arches all contrast beautifully with the warmth of Kerry’s flower crown and bouquet. The oak leaves sing of late autumn; the berries and buds add texture. Kerry’s red lippy makes a bold statement of its own and she looks incredible! I LOVE this fearless bridal look!


Hello! How is your week going? It’s flying by, don’t you think? I have a little treat for you today with a really lovely bridal style shoot – with a difference! We have vintage wedding dresses, the most stunning bouquets, a wonderful flower crown and oh! a leather jacket 🙂

I adored Holly and Paul from the moment I first saw their wedding pictures on Tracy Morter‘s photography blog. They’re a creative couple who planned a gorgeous wedding with a focus on family and friends. Holly’s wedding report is amazing: this lady is as wonderfully practical as she is enthusiastic and creative – it’s an unmissable read for ideas and wedding tips. Thank you beautiful Holly, you rock!

There is so much to see, I don’t know where to begin to introduce this gorgeous wedding: Holly’s beautiful flower crown, her natural hair and make up style, the lovely dress bought in New York… and then Paul’s fantastic blue suit, the incredibly decorative venue… or the laughter and smiles from the beginning of the day through to the last dance…
