Happy weekend, my lovelies! I’m busy teaching a modern calligraphy workshop at the fabulous Little Paper Shop in Nantwich, Cheshire today (head over to my insta @bymoonandtide for behind the scenes pics!) but of course I saved up something wonderful to share on English Wedding while I’m there! Senel from Bride and Belle and lovely Eva Tarnok used the history of Chiswick House as a basis of the inspiration for this wonderfully feminine and romantic, classic bridal editorial.

The images tell the love story of Elisabeth, an English lady, and her Italian suitor. Using a colour palette of soft pinks and neutral tones paired with gold details reflects the romantic and classical feel of this shoot, combined with a Fine Art aesthetic. The graceful, romantic and feminine images celebrate the historical nature of the building, which is transformed into a stunning wedding venue with lots of beautifully styled details.

Happy Wednesday lovelies! I have a wonderfully bright and beautiful wedding to share with you today – say hi to gorgeous couple Bethan & Tom, who were married at Brinsop Court in Hereford. Their wedding was relaxed and elegant, with a classic English countryside style – and it’s simply perfect. I adore the floral styling and Bethan’s dress is just perfect! Images are by lovely Joanna Briggs Photography.

“After trying on A LOT of gowns in many, many bridal boutiques and loving quite a few of them I didn’t think I would have that moment of ‘this is it!’… but on a spur of the moment visit to a store in Cardiff I tried on the gown which I would later walk down the aisle in, and twirled in front of my Mam, we both looked at each other and said ‘this is the one’.
I was a little in shock too as it was the complete opposite of what I had been looking at and thought I would wear – turns out that isn’t a cliche, it actually happens!

Hey beautiful! How was your weekend? We were treated to the loveliest day on Saturday by the team at The Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere, in the Lake District. I’m feeling so refreshed and at peace after a blissful weekend! More about that on Wednesday – we’ll be publishing a full review of our weekend then. Today though, we head for another stunning English mansion, with a wonderfully spring like wedding inspiration shoot from Clissold Park Mansions, just outside of London.

Images are by our lovely friend Eva Tarnok, and the styling was all taken care of by the fabulous Events by Keenda. We’re blown away by the floral design by Augusta Florals, and the bouquet, with silk ribbons from super lovely Pompom Blossom, and the cake and desserts from wonderful Gourmandises. The stationery by Hummingbird Cards adds a touch of elegance to set the scene for a perfectly styled English wedding.

Today, you lucky and lovely people, we’re excited to share an elegant wedding inspiration shoot. We love the style and story behind the images, which are beautifully illuminating and inspired by a colour palette of olive greens, chocolate browns, rich reds, rose golds and champagne creams. Oh, and isn’t this the most amazing bouquet since, like, ever?

Today tells the story of Roberto and Angelina, childhood sweethearts from the historical town of St Ives. They spent their teenage years having picnics by the river, taking long walks and watching the sun set over the Cambridgeshire countryside. After leaving the family home to follow his dream of traveling the world, Roberto returned five years later with a desperate need to see Angelina again. Even across the oceans his heart never left hers.  Now back, he vowed that if he ever left again, he would take her with him as his wife.

In the English Wedding Book I mentioned greenery and foliage as one of 2016’s major wedding trends – and the shoots I’m seeing on all the big international wedding blogs are saying the same thing… so I was thrilled when lovely Daniela from Ferri Photography submitted her images from a fabulously beautiful, artistic wedding styled shoot where the luscious leaves took centre stage!

The theme for the shoot is set around the story of a local, Italian, village girl who falls in love with an English boy. After what seems like a lifetime away from each other, today is finally the day they will get married.

In July 2015 I was selected to attended a Fine Art Wedding workshop called a Beautiful Way. The workshop took place at the stunning Almonry Barn in Somerset. Together with 12 other other photographers we spent the day exploring the fine art style of photography, making friends, laughing and eating some amazing food!”

Amy has to be the prettiest bride since ever. She’s gorgeous, full of joy and happiness and has a beaming smile… which comes from being on Dan’s arm, I think! I haven’t seen a prettier wedding in ages: the combination of spring blossoms, pretty florals and such a fab couple make today’s spring outdoor wedding really, really special.

Of course what makes a wedding blog special is the photography, and I was thrilled to read Amy and Dan’s glowing praise of my lovely photographer friend Mark at Evolve Photography in Devon. Choosing a wedding photographer is such a huge decision, and Amy and Dan told me Mark “was always friendly, calm, professional, and having now seen the photos we couldn’t have asked for more.”

There are so many highlights to show you from today’s outdoor wedding – the floral touches make it colourful and playful in style; the portraits around Dartington Hall are fabulous. I adore the cherry blossoms and the pretty ceremony space… oh and the reception styling is wonderful too!

Chloe and Kit’s wedding is just beautiful: a classic English country garden theme in a light and prettily decorated marquee at home. Chloe is the most beautiful bride, looking amazing in a lace dress by Augusta Jones. All of the special touches and styling on the day come together to create a delicately pretty and romantic wedding style with a cream, white and light grey colour scheme.

We’ve seen all the beautiful images from 14 of the North West’s finest wedding photographers – I think it’s time for a story: let’s go from “Once upon a time…” to “this week we’re launching Love Bridal!”, shall we? Here’s Emma Draper to tell you all about the brand new Love Bridal boutique and her fabulous designer’s collections launching today.

by Emma Draper for Love Bridal boutique

Love Bridal Boutique has been born out of our passion for all things bridal! My own prior experience as Boutique Manager for a Manchester bridal boutique, coupled with my work as a bridal make-up artist and also as Studio Director within Jonny’s photography business too (yes we live and breathe all things bridal!) has given me invaluable knowledge about the wedding industry. Let’s just say that weddings are what we do and what makes us tick. So, given all our experience, Love Bridal is the very last piece of our lovely wedding jigsaw.
