Hey gorgeous! So I spotted this one image of a butterfly on instagram and fell in love! You know when you fall down a bit of an insta rabbit hole? Well this adorable butterfly led me to Sarah and James’s wedding, captured beautifully by lovely Morden Hall wedding photographer Simon Biffen. These two are the best. Their day is relaxed and full of love and laughter. And they both look absolutely stunning in their wedding attire! (That dress of Sarah’s couldn’t be more perfect… LOVE!!!)

A story made up of endless beautiful moments - Morden Hall wedding by York Place Studios documentary wedding photographers London (14)

Should you polish your wedding? An odd question, I know – but think with me for a moment. In these days of Instagramming our lives and sharing only the carefully planned, tidy, and perfect sides of ourselves I kind of miss seeing photos that make me feel something. A gorgeous line of bridesmaids, a pristine wedding gown or a messy bouquet are all glorious to see on insta… but amongst all the wedding pretty, I love seeing a photo which will make me laugh out loud, scroll back up for another look or even identify with the people in the frame. And that has to be a real, spontaneous, unpolished wedding photograph.

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having a lovely week and – dare I say – looking forward to a fabulous weekend! Is it too early?! {Can you believe it’ll be July on Saturday?} Anyway – let’s focus our hearts on today because I have the loveliest florals from a sublime styled shoot at Morden Hall with Corette Faux Photography to show you.

The colour palette of soft blues and pops of gold and burgundy is fabulous; the styling perfectly elegant for a modern celebration in a historic stately home. Brush pen calligraphy adds a prettily carefree spirit to the day, and I absolutely adore the second bouquet of lilacs – a pretty alternative for a more boho wedding look.


Did you catch this morning’s wedding styling inspo at Morden Hall? Those flowers are still making me swoon… and if you loved them as much as I did, then I have a treat for you! Lovely Stuart from Confetti & Silk Wedding Video captured the day on film. Enjoy!

Confetti & Silk are wedding filmmakers based in London. Stuart is just one of the brilliant suppliers who brought today’s Morden Hall shoot to life, the others are listed below and all come highly recommended!


Eva Tarnok is a wedding photographer I love to work with: she’s taken some of the most beautiful images of my calligraphy; she has a love for the kind of pretty which perfectly suits a quintessentially English wedding.

Today’s inspiration is just so lovely: Morden Hall is a classic setting and needs little extra decor. Spring flowers and a pastel cake covered in tumbling, delicate foliage and pretty blooms set the scene, along with my calligraphy. The dress is pure romance… Kate Edmonson has something uniquely beautiful, don’t you think?
