Goodbye May, you have been delicious! As we skip from spring into summer tomorrow, the wedding season begins in earnest. I am so excited to have some incredibly beautiful shoots tucked up my little sleeves, which will be published on the blog throughout June. Let’s begin with something beautiful, shall we? This is simply outstanding wedding style inspiration from the magnificent Somerley Estate in Hampshire, brought to you by lovely Tasha of the Hampshire Wedding Club.
Stunning bride Jill & Luke were married at Carlowrie Castle last year in a beautiful wedding full of glamour. Their minimal, elegant styling is wonderful – and set to be a big trend for 2018 / 2019 weddings! Jill wore a stunning Suzanne Neville gown and Jimmy Choo shoes, and Luke and his groomsmen were in black tie. Jill’s bridesmaids wore matching cowl back gold sequin dresses and also had a bridesman wearing his tux with a gold sequin bow tie.
Today’s featured wedding was a classic white wedding with the most beautiful church arch. A very relaxed elegant feel with lots of involvement from the family – and the prettiest florals you can imagine. I just love the archway covered in flowers and foliage by lovely Caroline, owner of Foxy Buds Floral Design – it makes the prettiest backdrop for photos and has a traditional feel to it which I think is wonderful.
Something on top bridal designer Suzanne Neville‘s website caught my eye the other day – a little comment from lovely Suzanne herself that social media has inspired brides to be more adventurous. I love this! Browsing Instagram and Pinterest for unique wedding inspo – from designers all over the world – has changed us and is even inspiring those designers to create dresses which are more show-stopping than ever before!
I love it when a photoshoot like this sends me tumbling head over heels with a flower I never knew could be so lush, opulent and beautiful. Today’s feature is glamorous, brooding and alternative – and breathtaking. Huge thanks to lovely Grace Hill for sharing her dream with us today!
