As we nestle further into our chunkiest knits and wrap our hands around mugs of steaming hot chocolate here at English Wedding Blog HQ I have just a couple of inspirational features to share with you before Christmas. It’s been an amazing year; I’m still full of the joys of the festive season and that’s very much thanks to the guys at Aspire Photography Training. Our last shoot of 2016 was full of winter wonderfulness and I simply had to share some of these ideas with you before we break up!
Hello beautiful! I hope you’re having the most wonderful week. I’ve been super busy with my calligraphy pens recently, dreaming up something which many of you have asked me about – and I’m thrilled to say my online calligraphy workshop is finally here!! Wherever you are in the country, you can now learn calligraphy for your wedding from the comfort of your own home 🙂
The workshop is based around 6 video tutorials of calligraphy demonstrations, tips and advice. Each video is around 5-10 minutes long.
One of the things I love about the wedding industry is how quickly things change. Fashions come and go SO fast. As a wedding blogger I love how our industry thrives; how we import new ideas and how new faces appear so often on social media. Every new wedding business is an inspiration to me. And it makes staying in the game hard. It makes winning, and staying at the top of the wedding industry, the most exciting challenge you can imagine.

Did you know that make-up for a summer or a winter wedding is completely different? Brides are often worried that having professional make-up for their wedding means that they might end up looking orange and over painted, but experienced make-up artists know that different lighting changes make-up dramatically and they can make sure you look amazing whatever the season.
Autumn is an amazing time to be married – the colours of the season are super inspiring and there are so many incredible ways to style your day. Today I’m thrilled to be featuring some gorgeous autumn wedding inspiration from the lovely team at Aspire Photography Training. Their styled shoots are wonderful; I was lucky enough to be there for this shoot (you’ll spot my calligraphy here and there!) and I LOVE it.
The colours are bold and striking; contrasting soft blue tones with autumn colours works wonderfully. Vibrant orange cocktails and burnt whisky colours look stunning; combining berries with feathers and textured props is a delight!
