Light and romance with natural blush tones - wedding ideas from Downham Hall. Photographer credit Magical Moments Photography (9)

This was a photoshoot to celebrate light and romance. We were lucky enough to have been given full use of the beautiful orangery at Downham Hall, which allowed natural light to flood in from almost every angle, with fairy lights and candles providing a soft romantic ambiance. On our tables we had cut glass and crystal candle holders and vases; arranged on white sequin table linen, they all worked perfectly together to reflect all the different aspects of light and create more depth to the images. The use of soft fabrics for both the brides dress and veil, and the chair covers added that dreamy romantic feel we were looking for.

I’m a HUGE fan of blues in wedding decor, and I love today’s feature to bits! The soft blue tones are just wonderful, and the photography absolutely perfect. I need all those fabulous florals in my life right now!

As joint co-ordinators, hair stylist Jennie and photographer Laura came up with the concept for the shoot, which took place at Apton Hall in Essex. They focused primarily on the Pantone colour of the year – blue, and the idea of hinting toward an eco-friendly wedding. They began involving other wedding suppliers and the idea behind an environmental wedding grew into this beauty of an editorial. I’ll hand over to the girls to tell you more!

With love,

Laura photographed the day in her usual light & airy look, aiming to portray a romantic-luxe feel, and timeless beauty in a floaty boho-style. Laura’s images are created using natural light, showing romance and beauty, which appeal to many Brides for its elegant and relaxed nature. We both agreed that we wanted to show genuine emotion and for our models to portray ‘fun on their wedding day’, so we made efforts to have our couples laugh and enjoy the simple elements of a real wedding.

Hey lovelies! Sending hugs today for all of you who are feeling in shock and lost in this awful situation. I feel it too – I just hope we’ll all come out the other side of this ok. You’re in my thoughts, all of you lovely brides and grooms to be, and my lovely wedding industry friends.

Shall we escape for a few moments together, right now, and share some joyful images to lighten our hearts? Sabina M, a make up artist in London, came up with the concept for this modern Asian bridal shoot at Baddow Park House. As a mixed race bride with both English and Indian heritage, marrying a Sri Lankan groom, Sabina’s own wedding reflected their relationship as a modern couple while incorporating elements of the different cultures and traditions – and this shoot follows on beautifully from that concept. I will leave Sabina to tell you more!

Stay safe, stay home and stay well, lovelies.

Hey beautiful! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. Today I have something special to share with you: stunning Paul Zeni wedding dresses and a wonderfully rich and opulent colour palette of deep plums, dusky pinks and luxe textures. I’ve a feeling you’re going to tumble head over heels in love with this shoot – I know I have! Thanks to lovely Sophie Oldhamstead Photography for sharing this with us! Sophie worked with a whole bunch of talented Essex wedding creatives – you’ll find a full list at the end of the feature.

I was totally inspired by a selection of Paul Zeni dresses and their focus on beautiful fabrics and embellishments and felt compelled to orchestrate a styled shoot which would allow us to explore a focus on simple foundations but with a modern, delicate twist.

Morning lovely! I hope you’re having an easy day 🙂 It’s miserable up here in the Lakes (although I’m happily submerged in calligraphy work – yay!), so I’m delighted to be filling our screens with joyful colour and a light and fragrant summer wedding edit today. The florals are just STUNNING – and I’m totally in love with the Watters Wtoo gown with all its sparkle and swishiness! Oh, and don’t even get me started on the fabulous cake… it’s a winner in every single way and I’m thrilled to be sharing this with you all! Get those Pinterest fingers ready, my lovelies!

The concept for the shoot was a bright and contemporary use of décor and styling for a young modern bride who embraced her love of all things bold, bright and creative, yet wanted to keep things pretty, feminine and natural. Images are by Laura Jane Photography and the shoot was planned and styled by Party Squared with fabulous florals by Miss Fleur Floral Design, who submitted the shoot for us to share.
