Let’s take things back a notch from all the real weddings we’ve featured this week and turn our gaze to something dreamy instead! This wedding ideas shoot is just glorious: moody and exciting, beautifully styled and wonderfully creative. It’s been sent in by lovely Jen from My Pretties UK, Yorkshire based wedding planning & design expert specialising in stylish, forward thinking design for modern couples. Sooo much awesomeness… and those dresses are out of this WORLD!

With love,

I love a classic monochrome wedding and have done quite a few, with this shoot I wanted to be a bit more daring with it and give it an edge that would appeal to a more alternative couple.

We added in some silver, sparkle and pops of pink to take it up a gear.

Our gorgeous real couple Elizabeth and Ashley are alternative and really cool and unique and we wanted the shoot (as with any real wedding) to be a reflection of them.

Let’s begin the new week with something spectacularly gorgeous, shall we? This stunning shoot from Sarah Maria Photography is full of colour, laughter and styling ideas for you to take away and recreate at your own wedding. There are vibrant florals, gorgeous backdrops with pretty lettering, divine dresses and fun and funky styling touches. The venue is The Faversham, an award winning Leeds wedding venue with three very different spaces for weddings.

Images are by lovely Sarah Maria Photography, who is based in Lancashire. Do go visit Sarah’s website, read her blog and her brilliant and heartfelt advice about hiring a wedding photographer (based on personal experience and absolutely spot on!) – and get in touch to see if she’s free on your wedding day!

The Faversham offers so much more than your usual city centre location. Theres a large lawn area for giant games and post-ceremony drinks, a conservatory where you can say your vows before heading to the Victorian room to chill and catch up with friends and family. The whole place is just perfect for a laid back, non-traditional, relaxed wedding day – and today’s shoot shows some genius ways for styling your day to suit!

Nature lovers and fans of decadent florals – I have such a treat for you this Thursday afternoon. Today’s feature is all about a boho bridal look with oodles of greenery and the prettiest peach colour accents for a pretty spring vibe.

I love how delicate the Luna Bride gown feels – and how easily a dreamy boho look can become a little more luxe just by adding stunning floral arrangements.

Images are by fine art wedding photographer Arabella Smith, who collaborated with a team of Yorkshire wedding creatives to bring this look to life. The shoot took place during the Helmsley Walled Garden Wedding Open Weekend, with a floral fine art vibe but a little boho twist.
