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!

The summer solstice has been and gone… but I’ve been saving up something really special to mark the occasion. I’d have loved to visit Stonehenge in the days before it was a mega visitor centre – sadly my chance has passed, but I do still believe there’s a magic in the beautiful rolling hills nearby. Lucky enough to be situated on the edge of the Stonehenge world heritage site and set in the grounds of a 17th century manor house, The Manor Barn has been sympathetically restored to the highest possible standards as a charmingly timeless wedding venue.

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!

This is wedding inspiration at its prettiest – a gorgeous wintry inspiration shoot combining  an exquisite contoured dress and a modern twist on the iconic beehive. The beautiful bouquet and buttonhole – by Charlotte from Moutan Flowers – is both textural and delicate. The bouquet continued gorgeous globe thistles, pretty pink cool water roses, the rich black dahlia, and snow berries for an added delicate pink and cream colouring.
