I can’t even begin to tell you how utterly adorable today’s blog is! It’s an absolute treat to be sharing this gorgeous inspiration with you… and a glance at Hannah Brookes‘ photos will tell you why.

The images are stunning, the styling just perfect, the light and photography out of this world. There are sustainable elements which we LOVE: the flowers are locally sourced, seasonal blooms for a summer wedding. The mix of colour and texture in the bouquet is wonderful. The floral chandelier and archway are just incredible!

I’d elope. I’ve never shied away from saying this: if I got married right now, I’d elope. Easy. There’s just something wildly romantic about it being just the two of you (plus an amazing celebrant and lovely photographer, obvs) – and escaping into remote nature to say beautiful words – it’s my dream. So today’s glorious feature comes from stunning couple Matthew and Jane, with lovely Hannah Brooke Photography. I hope you’ll adore this as much as I do.“english

Picture the scene. It’s the morning of your wedding and you are JUBILANT with excitement, nerves and emotion about the day ahead. You’ve got all your best girls with you and you want your bridal prep photos to be picture perfect. BUT the reality is this: there’s a lot happening, a lot of people, a lot of stuff, it feels chaotic….and there’s not much time.

So how DO you get the gorgeous bridal prep pics? Here are my top tips…..

This is adorable. A family wedding for the cutest trio, an alternative celebration planned with one week’s notice, and the loveliest, most joyful images you can imagine. Congratulations Luke & Amy – we LOVE your wedding day! Let us know when you finally get to have that first dance…

How did you choose your photographer?

We chose Hannah from a recommendation from a friend. After having our wedding postponed twice due to Covid, lockdown lifted and we had a week to finalise all the details! Thankfully at very short notice Hannah fitted us into her bookings.

Today’s wedding style inspiration is just fabulous – the dress steals the show, it was Jen’s actual dress from her wedding to Elliott in 2019 – a custom design based on a beautiful Maggie Sottero gown, brought to life by Nicole at Elise Designs. Jen’s childhood hobby was designing wedding dresses and this was her dream dress – I think we can safely say it’s ours too?!

With love,“english
