Who else loves sunflowers? For summer colour, vibrance and just general amazingness, I think they’re pretty hard to beat! And if you can grow your own for your summer wedding, they’ll give you such wonderful memories of your day in your photos and whenever you see them again! Marie and Richard – I adore how you styled your day and I LOVE your photos!

There are so many things about this wedding that I love, but the thing that I remember the most is the pure happiness of the day.  The absolute joy of everyone to get together and celebrate on the day was genuine.  Marie is one of the happiest and most expressive brides I’ve had the pleasure of capturing.  She was excited and thrilled about everything – her friends giving a piano recital of Disney songs in the church, the bright flowers and bridesmaid dresses, and the wedding cake that had the same coloured tiers as the bridesmaid dresses.

So many of you are injecting colour into your weddings… and I just love bright, bold and beautiful celebrations. Modern brides are combining glamorous dresses and red lipstick with statement bouquets and striking detail – and I love this trend for statement wedding style.

English wedding styled shoot at Hylands House with AJG Photography (13)

“I love Hylands House and after capturing a wedding reception there earlier this year, I knew it would make a beautiful venue for a styled shoot.  It had to have a very rich and decadent theme to the day, to be in keeping with the rooms, and as I love Downton Abbey and The Great Gatsby I thought a fusion of English splendour and 1920’s glamour would be perfect. by Ayshea Goldberg

I love being asked to send calligraphy for styled photoshoots – my lettering has been to some wonderful places. I wish I could be there for every shoot, and especially when the locations are as luxurious as Hylands House!

Ayshea Goldberg had photographed our shoot there, so I asked her to introduce the venue to us:

Hylands House is a neo-classic building in the heart of Essex and set into formal gardens and parkland – the estate is also the setting for the annual V festival. Outside it’s very grand with impressive pillars and a sweeping driveway that looks fab with a classic car outside.

“Inside Hylands House is very opulent and grand with the centrepiece being the banqueting hall.  It’s full of gilt decor and original portraits – and has massive windows that open onto a gorgeous terrace with beautiful views of the park. Couples can marry in the drawing room and then celebrate in the banqueting hall – or for larger wedding parties there is a light and airy pavilion which is perfect for evening parties.
