Melissa and Nathan’s big day is fab: a wonderful autumn wedding full of colour and fun. They celebrated at Wasing Park (Berkshire) – instantly recognisable for its Victorian summerhouse and that amazing mural. They both look fantastic: Melissa’s elegant bridal style is just fabulous. Her dress was the very first one she tried on, 16 months before the wedding, and she told me she loved wearing it on the day.

Melissa shares some fantastic advice. I love this one: “Make decisions quickly – there is so much choice out there you could shop around forever, if you like something don’t keep looking just go with it!”

Watch out for the baby’s reaction to the singing policemen… 😉

Today’s real wedding comes a little later than planned: I’ve been excitedly waiting to share this with you after its original publication on Juno & Joy. It’s a wonderfully light and pretty wedding from Windsor, with the most delicate florals and stunning portraits… and the most gorgeous and lovely couple you could meet.

How did you choose your photographer?

I googled local photographers. And Hannah’s website caught my eyes. I loved her portfolio!!

It makes me incredibly proud to see some of the superb talents we have in the English wedding industry. I love to showcase exceptional suppliers, and one of the very best is the inimitable Petra Opperman.

Petra’s exquisite taste often combines classical music with astonishingly beautiful design and styling: I know when Petra curates a styled shoot it will be divine. Today is no exception, and I have a luxurious styled shoot in two parts to share with you on the English Wedding Blog (with an exclusive “Get the Look” feature full of details and design this afternoon at 3!)

Huge thanks are due to the fabulous suppliers who collaborated for this shoot. A full list is shown just after all of the images below, but to begin I must thank lovely wedding stylist Petra Opperman, and fabulous photographer (and brand new Dad to a beautiful baby girl!)

Have you heard of floriography? No? Along with tablescapes and ombre you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a new wedding buzz word, but it comes from the Victorians – whose style we’re fast falling in love with for 2014 and 2015 weddings. Today I have the most amazing shoot to share with you – full of luxurious style ideas you can use to create your own elegant Victorian wedding style.

The beauty of this shoot is second to none. I adore wedding styling shoots as they can be such a rich source of ideas for brides and grooms – and Petra Opperman is one of the most amazing stylists in the country. Along with photographer Matthew Bishop and a host of outstanding suppliers, Petra has created another stunning wedding style to share with you today – and I absolutely love it!
