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.

Today’s photoshoot took place when a wedding showcase couldn’t happen… and these amazing suppliers kept the day alive in their inspiring way. It’s wonderful – I hope you love the images. Thank you especially to Sally Rawlins Photography and to Louisa May Weddings, who’ll explain more.

With love,

Country Elegance Styled Shoot: The Tudor Barn Belstead (3)


Well good morning, beautiful! I have a stunning wedding inspiration photoshoot to share with you today. This will appeal to those of you who aren’t so fussed on pretty pastels and are looking for a bolder, more dramatic and impactful statement. Here’s one STUNNING way to make your wedding stand out from the crowd. Huge thanks to lovely wedding stylist Nonie Leonard for sharing this glorious shoot with us! I’ll leave Nonie to tell you all about it.

With love,

The style and concept was brought together, by a bride’s take on bringing modern elegance to a rustic venue. Lillibrooke Manor is beautiful and surrounded by amazing grounds and scenery, perfect for an elegant wedding whilst staying true to the style of the venue.


Happy Sunday, lovelies! I hope you’re enjoying a relaxing (if blustery!) weekend, and managing to take a little time for self-care today. It’s been a funny old week with the blog – my inbox is bursting with joyful and beautiful images, and I’ve spent every day chasing my tail… so I wanted to end the week with one of the loveliest shoots I’ve seen all year. This one was sent in by lovely Weddings by Emma Louise, a supremely talented stylist and wedding planner whose love of nature shines through in this sublime collection of images. I will leave you with Emma to talk you through this breathtakingly beautiful springtime wedding styling feature.

With love,

Romantic, French inspired wedding inspiration with masterful florals (36)

Together with Charlotte Wise Photography and Rachel Dalton Weddings, Blooming Haus Floral Engineers embarked on a journey to style a romantic, French inspired photoshoot in a classic British countryside manor setting. Their main goal was to show the quintessence of a light, intimate and passionate wedding celebration.

The overall look for this shoot was subtle, airy and feminine. We took influences from French-inspired styling and our countryside surroundings to create a timeless and effortlessly romantic look.

Oh my word I LOVE this shoot!!! The colours, the elegance and the light through the windows… every detail is spot on, it’s absolutely beautiful. I’ve been saving it up, because it’s lovely to have something to inspire all of our weekends… and this has everything from a La Sposa gown (oh, that lace!) and velvet ribbons, insanely beautiful florals and a moody, luxe, dreamy colour palette.

The venue is Shropshire’s stunning Davenport House. The inspiration was – and I LOVE this – Vanity Fair at the Oscars. How’s that for a wedding theme?! Elegant glamour inspired wedding styled shoot with blacks, dark greys, deep greens and pops of colour. Images are by lovely Shropshire wedding photographer Laura May Photography.

Taking inspiration from the iconic Condé Nast publication Vanity Fair, a sense of drama and old Hollywood glamour was created with this shoot. The team wanted to create something more elevated and elegant for such a fantastic venue, with deep blues, crimsons and golds taking centre stage with the table décor.

Today’s shoot blows my mind, it’s so beautiful! Kirsty’s fabulous blue hair is only the beginning: the dress is insanely beautiful, the owl is the cutest thing ever, and the dripping candles and creative tablescapes tie the alternative fairytale styling (because yes, that’s a thing now!) together perfectly. Huge thanks to lovely Andreea at Vevi Photography for sharing this with us today. Lovelies, you’re going to need your Pinterest fingers!

We wanted to create a fairytale feel for our alternative wedding shoot combining the woodland rustic wedding styling with touches of more luxurious items like gold rimmed plates, some exotic flowers and gold painted apples.

Kirsty and George love fairytales and Disney so when I photographed their fairytale themed wedding previously I knew they would be the right couple for the shoot I had in mind since their wedding had inspired me. It was a thrill to relieve their wedding day emotions with this lovely couple and an absolute joy to have our ring bearer owl there too.
