I’m a country girl – I left, once, and I will never move away again. There’s something magical in every breath of fresh air, every step across grass and sand and muddy track. Nothing beats the views across hills and fells, to forests and fields. Nothing. So country weddings are my thing; and country themed photo shoots make my heart sing!

Today I have two shoots in one: an engagement shoot followed swiftly by some creative wedding ideas – all focused around the countryside. The images are divine – they’re by top wedding photographers Lisa Aldersley and Nichola Morton, both at Aspire.

Styling is by Aspire’s lovely Yasmin, calligraphy is by me (and can be found in my Etsy shop). The gorgeous couple are totally in love and I just can’t put into words how much I adore the romance of the images… have an engagement shoot, everyone!

Italian wedding styled shoot Aspire Photography Training (2)

Mary-Kate had no idea she’d return from Venice with a ring on her finger… she was modelling along with her boyfriend Lee for a styled wedding shoot in Italy, having the experience of a lifetime which she probably didn’t think could get any better.

She was in for the most amazing surprise…

Today I bring you the most delicious shoot I could ever dream of showing you! I’ve been working alongside the lovely team at Aspire Photography Training recently, writing little bits of calligraphy and helping super stylist Yasmin with wedding shoot plans. It’s really exciting.

I was thrilled when Yasmin from Aspire asked me to provide calligraphy for a shoot at Castello Ceconi in Italy. I adore the images and how they tell a story, especially with the incredible twist right at the end!

Images are by Lisa Aldersley, Ayshea Goldberg, Teresa Cunningham and Marta May. I’ve included a little about each of the photographers who shared their images for the shoot at the end of today’s post. Please visit their websites and discover more – they’re all brilliant and I love their photographs to bits!
