We’re brining you serious wedding escapism this morning – away from the surreal and scary world out there. But before all that, I know many of you are so worried about your wedding plans for the summer. My advice for all of you is to focus on the truly important: not your wedding, not your marriage even, but your love. No matter what, your love will get you through this. And for advice, reassurance, and all the practicalities of wedding planning with coronavirus a very real threat on the horizon, read Annabel’s superb advice features on Love My Dress. She’s got your back, and with a great team of wedding experts on board, all the advice you could ask for is there.

Now back to that escapism – because we need a safe space online to indulge in a little wedding pretty right now! It’s springtime and we have the most wonderfully fresh wedding ideas with the prettiest florals and sublime stationery in delicate pastel shades. With inspiration drawn from the beautiful Georgian architecture at Rownhams House and the writings of Jane Austen of that period, today’s stunning bridal shoot is inspired by the romanticism, splendour and elegance of that era with a quintessentially English yet modern feel.

Happy Sunday my lovelies! We have the most beautiful wedding inspiration for you today, courtesy of The Hampshire Wedding Club member Lauren Hughes. As a Hampshire wedding photographer, Lauren’s imagination and creativity is second only to the beauty of her images – and for today’s feature she pulled together a super talented team who created something truly unique and different – and wonderfully exciting!

The wedding venue is Rownhams House, and if you’re planning a wedding in Hampshire you will be thrilled with all the clever and lovely humans you’re about to discover in that neck of the woods! For Hampshire wedding photography of course you need look no further: Lauren Hughes is your girl.

I love the non-traditional look to this shoot: the vibe is ethereal with a wistful essence and dark undertones. Liv’s dress by Nortier Shallow is layered with a gorgeous nude underskirt and soft black tulle edged in horsehair braid. The shape is high fashion elegance, incorporating the black layers without even a hint of steampunk and gothic: this would make a perfect evening dress for those of you who fancy a change halfway through your day; or a fabulous combination of classic silhouette and head-turning colour for a stunning daytime wedding look!
