Happy Friday lovelies! I hope you have exciting plans for the weekend ahead ? – but before we even get there, let’s make Friday AMAZING, shall we? I have a wonderfully tranquil and beautiful feature for you today. It’s all about sustainable wedding styling, and comes from (where else?) the fabulous River Cottage in Devon.

The shoot was perfectly styled by Claire and Vicky from Do Me A Favour. The stunning images are by lovely Laura at Freeformimages Photography. Laura’s website is a beautiful, vibrant and joyful little part of the internet and I wholeheartedly recommend you check her out – we LOVE her style here at English Wedding HQ! Laura’s here to tell you all about today’s editorial photoshoot. Enjoy!

The one word which springs to mind when I see this beautiful, vibrant, festival wedding is CELEBRATION. And those caps right there are totally justified! It’s a beauty. Gorgeous couple Charlie & Chris were married at River Cottage, and chose Spencer White as their wedding photographer.

I just love this – and there are too many fabulous details to mention. The cake – I have no words. Wow…

Then there’s all the pretty bunting, the colourful florals, the signage and of course the wonderful backdrop of one of England’s favourite contemporary wedding venues. The game of wedding I Spy is genius! The one eyed black cat (or is he winking?!) says he’s seen it all; but as a wedding blogger I’ve seen thousands of weddings and this one is a BEAUTY! Enjoy, and Happy Sunday everyone!

I’ve heard some criticism of styled shoots recently (did you catch me on The Icing On The Cake podcast this week and last? Zoe did a brilliant job putting together interviews with me and Kat from Rock n Roll Bride where we shared our thoughts on wedding planning, trends and styled shoots! It’s worth a listen!) – namely that they can be too aspirational and expensive to recreate for a full scale wedding.  Today’s shoot on the English Wedding Blog is perfect to me because the look is achievable: it’s beautiful in simplicity, the table arrangements are perfect for a display area being wild and natural, and the look created is laid back, uncomplicated and frankly a beautiful breath of fresh air.
