Hi everyone! I have been saving up this beauty of a shoot to glam up your Monday and give your eyes a treat! Lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Amanda Karen Photography delights us every time with her editorial shoots, and this is one of her very best. Teaming up with Fleur & Fig Styling & Events, the look is fine art beauty mixed with an edge of London chic. The backdrop is the fabulous (and brilliantly named) Dead Dolls House, which inspired Fleur & Fig’s styling and design concepts you’re about to see.

I adore the deep blues and greys used throughout the shoot: the cake crafted by Wildflower Cakes is breathtaking, and teamed with soft grey silk linens from Lancaster and Cornish and crockery from Classic Crockery it looks stunning. Lovely Lauren at Oh Wonder Calligraphy created a luxe invitation suite in her signature style with the most delicate hand torn edges and romantic calligraphy.

Your wedding can have luxe styling, romantic florals and pretty details even with a more industrial, city backdrop. There’s something I really love about contrasting an urban setting with feminine decor, and today’s styled shoot is simply fabulous.

This styled shoot was inspired by the growing trend in urban feel weddings in London but with brides wanting to maintain that luxurious and stylish feel. Watercolour touches added softness to the industrial surroundings of Drake and Morgan at Kings Cross through the use of silk linens, stunning stationery and a beautifully water colour painted cake.

The use of herbs again brought a softer feel to the venue but also bought the outside in, something that can be important to brides if the venue they choose does not have its own green outdoor space.

Today’s wedding style inspiration is dreamily beautiful, at one with nature and delicately feminine. The details are divine: stormy aubergine tulips bend gracefully across elegant calligraphy place settings. Pretty bridal gowns contrast with a vibrant lip colour; the sweetest of pink roses nestle amongst escaping foliage and darker hues – together they create an amazing wedding look.

The Lady At The Lake was an extra special styled shoot for me, because it sought to encompass a theme that is very close to my heart.

Working with a select group of talented female wedding vendors, including some, like myself, who are relatively new to the industry, we sought to inspire brides with a fine art fusion of femininity and strength.

Contrasting the softness of a 1950s chiffon dress and a silk Malene Birger gown, with bold makeup and simple, undone hair, we wanted to show brides that it is possible to look pretty and feminine, while also retaining a sense of their own identity and fierceness!
