Hey beautiful! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. Today I have something special to share with you: stunning Paul Zeni wedding dresses and a wonderfully rich and opulent colour palette of deep plums, dusky pinks and luxe textures. I’ve a feeling you’re going to tumble head over heels in love with this shoot – I know I have! Thanks to lovely Sophie Oldhamstead Photography for sharing this with us! Sophie worked with a whole bunch of talented Essex wedding creatives – you’ll find a full list at the end of the feature.

I was totally inspired by a selection of Paul Zeni dresses and their focus on beautiful fabrics and embellishments and felt compelled to orchestrate a styled shoot which would allow us to explore a focus on simple foundations but with a modern, delicate twist.


Happy weekend, lovelies! It’s been a mega busy (birthday!*) week here at English Wedding Blog HQ – I’m celebrating summer and our new shop opening and dashing around like the busy bee I am! Oh, and there’s just one more day for wedding suppliers to apply for my birthday sponsorship offer here.

*I’m somethingty-something. Going on seven. 🙂

Today’s styled shoot is pretty, feminine, summery bliss with unstructured floral loveliness, delicious decorative hoops (I love these!) and the prettiest brides in flowy, ethereal and wearable dresses. It’s a real treat for my birthday week and I hope you love it!

The pretty images are by lovely photographers Rebecca at Farries Photography and Sophie Oldhamstead who spent the day at Maiden’s Barn capturing this gorgeous styled shoot.

I’m so in love with the bouquets from Olivia’s Roses – and the floral theme carries on with beautiful accessories by the very talented Charlotte Rose.
