Romantic London wedding editorial with Ryann Lindsey Photography (7)

Hello lovelies! Today’s all about the pretty on English Wedding… gloriously soft and feminine pinks with romantic table styling, silk ribbons and a lush bouquet. This palette and look would be wonderful in a contemporary marquee or garden wedding reception, or an orangery with views onto beautiful gardens. Huge thanks to lovely Jenna from Wonderland Invites for sharing it with us – this is so damn beautiful!

When my Instagram friend from the states announced she’d be in the UK to shoot a wedding, I knew it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to work together in person. I messaged Ryann of Ryann Lindsey Photography and she was up for the task!

We decided to push for a London based shoot, and my search began. I was over the moon when Chelsea Physic Garden accepted. As a working garden open to the public, they don’t frequently allow photoshoots; as such, it was an amazing opportunity we were handed by the marketing team there. To compliment the lush greenery of the gardens, I opted for a pink, mauve and white colour scheme which would bounce beautifully off the floral and fauna of the surroundings.

Hints of today’s faded beauty editorial appeared in the English Wedding Bible at the beginning of the month – call it a sneak peek. There is so much more I’ve been so excited to share with you, and the styling is right up my street, created by lovely Nikki from Knots & Kisses. Her concepts are simply stunning – her eye for wedding styling is exceptional. The stationery and cake just blow my mind! Here’s Nikki to tell you more…

The inspiration for the shoot started with a visit to the wonderful Great Fulford and the beautiful but slightly dilapidated rooms with their bare brick and peeling plaster. It automatically evoked feelings of Great Expectations for me and Miss Havisham’s dining room. A feel of faded beauty and elegance which I thought would be a beautiful backdrop for a shoot.

My aim was to inspire couples to realise the opportunity to set their wedding in more unusual places than your average manor house – that industrial and run down spaces could be the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

I love the idea of a vineyard wedding, and as a wedding blogger I see so many gorgeous celebrations from Californian vineyards… but did you know we have our very own vineyards here in the UK? Today’s gorgeous shoot comes from Hidden Spring Vineyard in East Sussex. The Tasting Room at Hidden Spring makes for a lovely wedding reception room, and the vineyard location is wonderfully inspiring for your wedding theme… especially when you can book some of the fab suppliers who collaborated on this creative shoot!

As a wedding stylist I encourage my couples not to go with a theme but instead be inspired by their surroundings and not be afraid to mix antiques and modern items.  This creates depth and texture in the overall design of a tablescape or room – the results are just magical!

Fabulous floral wedding style ideas at Findon Manor, with Maria D'Souza Photography (2)

Findon Manor Hotel is one of those venues that instantly hugs you as you walk in!  It’s full of Old English charm – original wood floors adorn all its intimate and elegant rooms and there is a roaring open fire that welcomes you in the front reception room.  It was love at first sight for me so when they invited me to do a styled shoot there I jumped at the chance.

It was easy to go for a Wild English Rose inspiration when it came to picking a theme – I imagined bursts of colour, wild, pretty countryside florals, quintessentially English details, mixed with gold and jewel tones for that luxe and stylish (and unstuffy) look.
