This fabulous shoot struck me for its uniqueness: for the subtle shift in roles, as well as for the breathtaking styling elements and artisan detailing. Those of you looking for a sustainable wedding with luxury touches need look no further. The shoot was conceived and styled by lovely Nikki at The Toast, and captured so beautifully by OliveJoy Photography. The setting at Bignor Park is enchanting: upturned chairs and trailing, tumbling tablescapes set the scene for a very different wedding style. Florals are fabulously wild and organic, with dried elements and the most wonderful velvet ribbons. The stationery by In The Detail fills a table with beauty which is minimal, elegant and raw.
So happy Valentine’s Day to you!! I hope whatever your plans, you’re feeling loved and blessed this morning. I’m getting ready for a really special friend’s wedding tomorrow and I can’t wait!! So I think we’re doing all our Valentine’s Day stuff on the 15th… we’ll miss the rush in the restaurants and have a wonderfully cosy meal!
I had to save up something really special for the blog on Valentine’s Day of course. This is a breathtakingly beautiful bridal shoot, loosely based around a romantic ‘French style chateau’ in the New Forest, Hampshire. Thank you to lovely Frances Moore for sharing it with us – if we weren’t all feeling loved up already, oh my goodness am I in the mood for a little romance now!
Happy Sunday my lovelies. It’s been a whirlwind of a week here at English Wedding HQ, and I’m quietly looking forward to a normal, unexciting, basic Monday full of admin and gentle blogging. How about you? Today I wanted to take a moment to share some of my favourite posts from our lovely friends and blog sponsors the Hampshire Wedding Club. If you’re getting hitched in or near Hampshire, then please do check them out – they’re a wonderful bunch of talented wedding creatives who’ve joined forces to inspire your best day ever.
I stumbled across this gorgeous Hampshire wedding on the blog of Lemontree Photography – and totally loved everything about it. Sarah and Iain are gorgeous – their day is so perfectly charming I had to get in touch with Az at Lemontree and ask if we could share their images with you today. Lucky for me, he said yes, and Sarah and Iain have been lovely in sharing some of the details of their planning with you too!
I love today’s shoot – all the greenery is stunning, it’s wonderfully styled and absolutely beautiful. Botanicals is such a beautiful trend, and lush green leaves are key to styling this year – today we show how to incorporate a whole lot of fabulous textures into your botanicals inspired wedding.
The ideas here are wonderful – from a fabulous team of wedding suppliers whose vision comes to life at the fabulous Highcliffe Castle, in the gorgeous Wintergarden room with its glorious windows and light. The stunning bouquet of ferns and anemones is amazing; the metallics of the tablescape and cake are the perfect contrast with all the green… I hope you love it – please do Pin away to your heart’s content!
