Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope you’re all doing ok. In case you missed it over the weekend, I wanted to share lovely Annabel’s Love My Dress update on covid and weddings, and all the amazing work the #whataboutweddings campaign is doing. Please read if you haven’t already – progress is being made, and this is super important. Meanwhile, I’d like to share a really special wedding with you today. Lovely couple Soma and Jonny were married in pre-pandemic times at Heaton House Farm, and our fabulous friend, English Wedding member and Somerset & UK wedding photographer Simon Biffen Photography was there to capture their day. The personal touches are inspired, the styling is fabulous, the bride and groom look AMAZING and the images are out of this world.

Wedding cakes have evolved considerably over the years. Gone are the days of original fruit cakes and white icing. Nowadays, couples are not only choosing wedding cakes that come in a variety of deliciously indulgent flavours but many are choosing cakes that are complete works of art, from delicately piped colourful flowers, to different botanicals and multiple extraordinary layers.
This year saw several incredible new techniques and twists dominate the wedding cake sector, such as the popular geometrics and woodland inspired designs. And 2019 is likely to be no different with several unusual wedding cake trends set to rise in popularity. Here’s what to keep an eye out for in the New Year.
You might just recognise bride Steph from the cover of the English Wedding Book… you might recognise the calligraphy in this shoot as mine – I was so happy to be a part of this shoot earlier in the year. You’ll most certainly know the divine landscapes are my beloved Lake District… today’s emerald wedding inspiration shoot comes from the shores of Windermere, from one of the Lakes’ loveliest venues: Silverholme.
