This is wedding styling of dreams. A graceful, sleek wedding dress teamed with designer stationery in a monochrome palette and lush, romantic florals – just beautiful. Capturing it all is our talented and lovely friend and Essex wedding photographer Amanda Karen Photography.

The contrast between the softness and delicate colouring of the floral arrangements, the modern lines of the off the shoulder dress with its statement bow, and the striking stationery make this a really stunning wedding look.

If you don’t do etiquette in your daily life, there’s really no need to suddenly start doing it in your wedding invitations. Unless you’re the Queen. Have you ever “requested the pleasure of the company of” any of your friends before? No! Because they’d look at you all weird. Now isn’t the time to start… there’s a billion better ways to word your wedding invites!

Gracefully asking your guests to join you on your wedding day is the goal. Your invitations should make your guests smile (not yawn; not skim read to the best bits) and have them looking forward to your big day. Beautiful design goes a long way – and throwing in some personal touches makes any wedding invite unique and special.

The bride and groom are a PERFECT fairytale couple – this is as good as it gets. You will LOVE this! Enjoy.

Since lockdown began, I’ve been constantly surprised and uplifted by the resilience of the wedding industry. As so many of you lovely couples have had to postpone, suppliers have been working hard to support your new plans, to juggle availability for 2021 bookings… and all the time facing genuine hardships (because for so many of these indie businesses, this is their livelihoods). So when a photoshoot like this one lands in my inbox it brightens my heart and reassures me: we’ll come back. We can do this. There’s a future for those fiercely creative talents working to make your weddings amazing, and a positive future shining on the horizon.
