Good morning, lovelies! I’m officially back at my blogging desk after a week in Venice, and VERY excited for the week ahead. We’ve some stunning weddings and ideas to share with you, and my inbox is bursting with submissions (I have 331 emails eeek) so it’s going to be a busy and beautiful week! Let’s kick things off with a fabulous wedding photoshoot from lovely Lorna Newman Photography, from a new wedding venue in Cambridgeshire. I hope you love this as much as I do!

Stockmans Meadows Cambridgeshire wedding photography by Lorna Newman (21)

A team of amazing suppliers came together for this inspired shoot mainly to showcase a beautiful new venue called Stockmans Meadows, in Cambridgeshire. The venue is set alongside a river (they even have a boat). It has a cute boho feel and is super romantic so our concept for the shoot was “Romance by the Riverside’. We wanted to showcase the venue, as well as all the very talented suppliers work that was involved.

Beautiful real boho wedding from Shortmead House, with Lorna Newman Photography (32)

Happy Friday folks! What are your plans for the weekend? We’ll be relaxing after a tough week of man flu, I think!! But let’s hark back to the summer months, shall we? Beautiful Leila & her gorgeous groom Mike had a laid back outdoor wedding in June at the very lovely Shortmead House in Biggleswade, which is set in the Bedfordshire countryside. It had a very English country garden feel, which photographer Lorna Newman has captured beautifully for us. I hope you love this stunning summer wedding as much as I do!

All images are by lovely Lorna Newman, whose style is wonderfully fun and creative – her romantic shots throughout the day from morning through to sunrise are just divine. The wedding was non-traditional, very beautiful and relaxed, it was just perfect.
