I still love styled shoots – they’re fabulous for first glimpses of inspiration and ideas which will gradually make their way into real couples’ weddings on blogs and in magazines. I publish plenty: I send my calligraphy out to a select few. But when Krysta (For the Love of Weddings) asks for stationery or calligraphy I know the shoot will be insanely beautiful, and I jump at the chance to take part!

Working with my beautiful friend Amy Swann makes the process even more enjoyable. Since 2017 we’ve been making wedding invitations for luxury and intimate weddings all over the world. Amy’s illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to romantic, organic calligraphy lettering, and a creative brief from a client like Krysta is so exciting to work with!

Today’s shoot happened at Garthmyl Hall and was beautifully captured by Rebecca Goddard Photography. Planning and styling was by For the Love of Weddings with concept & design by Style & Bloom. The flowers take centre stage – Pheasant Botanica‘s work is always stunning! Our model wears bridal wear by Sienna Von Hildemar with jewellery by Glitzy Secrets. Hair was styled by Tabitha with makeup by Victoria Jones.

Hey beautiful! How was your weekend? We were treated to the loveliest day on Saturday by the team at The Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere, in the Lake District. I’m feeling so refreshed and at peace after a blissful weekend! More about that on Wednesday – we’ll be publishing a full review of our weekend then. Today though, we head for another stunning English mansion, with a wonderfully spring like wedding inspiration shoot from Clissold Park Mansions, just outside of London.

Images are by our lovely friend Eva Tarnok, and the styling was all taken care of by the fabulous Events by Keenda. We’re blown away by the floral design by Augusta Florals, and the bouquet, with silk ribbons from super lovely Pompom Blossom, and the cake and desserts from wonderful Gourmandises. The stationery by Hummingbird Cards adds a touch of elegance to set the scene for a perfectly styled English wedding.

Hi lovelies! How is your wedding planning going and are you hooked on Pinterest yet? I’ve spent today falling down random Pinterest holes… it’s not been a mega productive one so far! And the photoshoot I’m about to share with you hasn’t helped at all… there are so many stunning ideas here. We’re talking late summer wedding style – for that brief period of time when the summer begins to fade and wisps of autumn stir the air. A delicate, pastel colour palette still works this late in the season, but tinged with plum tones and darker pinks the look becomes something truly special to work with the earliest days of autumn.

The key emerging trend for 2019 weddings right now seems to be minimalism – simple styling and elegant touches, with a focus on quality rather than quantity of styling touches! Tables and place settings can be kept beautifully clean with minimal fuss and subtle colours, bridal styling is only subtly hued and florals are soft, lush and green. Simplicity is beautiful; understated is our dream wedding look for the coming year!

Rock the Frock Bridal provided two dresses – a modern style from Mila Mira, taking elements from traditional bridal styling and with a taupe lining. We love the second look, with a two-piece top and skirt by Zetterberg Couture. Make up was by Clarissa Clary, with the look kept soft and neutral with hair by Jennie in a soft braided up-do. The hairline is by PS With Love, and veil from lovely Sash & Veil.

Tales of the sea - inspirational beach wedding style fromSerpentine Shores and Salt & Sea Photography (28)

Sometimes images speak for themselves; sometimes they sing. Today’s billowing, seaweed-scented shoot has a yearning, breathtaking aesthetic which lightens my heart with its beauty. Styled by the wonderful Serpentine Shores Co. and photographed by Salt & Sea Photography, it’s simply perfect and will appeal to beach brides everywhere.

Tales of the sea - inspirational beach wedding style fromSerpentine Shores and Salt & Sea Photography (22)

Bleak, wild, billowing and windswept; our inspiration for this shoot was stories of mythology, both Celtic and Classical. Particularly stories based around the coast and ocean. Stories foretelling of the sea’s peculiar, poetic and enigmatic nature. Subtly, our narrative was one of a sailor, a shipwreck, a sea spirit and a Shakespearean storm.

Playing on these ideas of folklore and fables, we sought to tell a story that was ethereal, ornate, organic and untamed. Through delicate drapes, washed-up relics and cascading ship sails, we sought to illustrate all that is salty, prosaically simple and down to earth and yet sublime. Fusing the Cornish and Grecian, we sought to create something intimate, otherworldly and ‘of the sea’.

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?

More than anything else I value true craftsmanship and style in the wedding industry. Mass-produced, bland styling touches turn me cold… but show me breathtaking style from independent designers and I fall head over heels in love. Today’s wedding inspo comes from the very best: creatives, artisans and designers whose work I truly adore.

Paper magnolias, calligraphy and dusky blue ethereal beauty - bridal inspo by Jess Petrie Photography (38)

A few simple – but beautifully crafted – details can go a long way on your wedding day. Choose statement pieces and use them sparingly: a stunning dress; a unique and different bouquet and hair accessory – these are the details which will make you feel incredible and ensure your day is truly special. The blue dress is Eden by Claire Pettibone – a stunning favourite from her beautiful Couture Collection, supplied by Yorkshire’s White Room Bridal Boutique. Paper magnolias and the stunning floral hair accessories are by designer and illustrator Amy Swann.

The ONLY wedding theme which has been constantly popular since this blog was born in 2009 (we’re six!! who knew?!) is English Country Garden. I love that we’re so smitten with flowers, with nature, with the beauty of our gardens and countryside… and today’s styled inspiration shoot pays tribute to this, the loveliest wedding theme of all.

English Rose garden styled bridal shoot with Eva Tarnok Photography (23)

The inspiration of this editorial shoot was the location itself, the recently renovated south London wedding venue, Morden Hall and the surrounding beautiful Morden Hall Park. The park is run by National Trust and it contains a variety of natural landscapes, including parkland, the River Wandle, meadow and marshland. One of the most popular areaS of the park is the rose garden, which has over 2000 roses and other flowers and it is a stunning example of the traditional English rose garden. We wanted the images to reflect the elegance of this historic venue but also to showcase the natural beauty surrounding it.
