“But we loved with a love that was more than love—
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.”

Edgar Allen Poe’s hauntingly beautiful love poem Annabel Lee inspired today’s breathtaking bridal shoot. I adore the luxury, the timelessness and opulence of everything you’re about to see.

Images are by lovely Amanda Karen Photography who explains, “The dark and romantic nature of this poem was woven through the shoot with deep reds, elegant blacks and opulent golden touches. Hedsor House was a natural choice for the venue with its iconic looming stature and its luxurious interiors.”

Extravagance and luxury styling really works here. The haute couture wedding dresses look regal and sensuous; and I do so love any beautiful wedding dress which isn’t white. Ian Stuart knocks it out of the park, obviously… swooon!!!

The rich colour palette lends itself beautifully to autumn or winter wedding styling – the gold accents and those divine black candles are fabulous.

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? I’ve been a busy bee working on the blog but I managed to sneak outside for a little sunshine too. This morning I wanted to show you the latest lace bridal shoes by Freya Rose, which landed in my inbox late last week. They’re so delicately pretty and intricately detailed, a feminine and flattering choice for summer brides.

Freya Rose style ‘Hanna’ is a charming and romantic slingback shoe made with the finest French Chantilly lace.

Unique and intricate embroidery techniques are used by fine craftsmen synonymous to the Freya Rose brand to create the divine detail on Hanna, which sees a large flower hand embellished with delicate ivory beads and crystals.”

I really admire Freya Rose for their craftsmanship and focus on design and intricate detailing. Bridal shoes are created in London and then handmade in Spain in a bespoke workshop by craftsmen who have learnt their diligent skill over generations.

Oooh where to start?! Michelle and Marc are a cool couple whose vintage chic wedding with a modern twist has some fabulous details – stunning rustic country flowers, tweed and bow ties for the boys, a 1950’s styled bridal dress, with cornflower blue bridesmaids… oh it’s beautiful and there’s so much to tell! They married at Peover Golf Club in Cheshire, on the hottest day of last year – and their wedding photos tell such a magical story.

The beautiful bride and gorgeous groom chose Pixies in the Cellar to photograph their wedding. Peter and Sara – aka the Pixies! – told me, “We really enjoyed the whole day, Meesh and Marc had thought of everything for the day to run smoothly and for it to be very personal to them. What really shines through in the pictures is how much fun everyone had, it way just a great group of family and friends enjoying a great day with some very very summery weather!
