The English Wedding Blog exists to fire your imagination; to bring you the most beautiful wedding ideas and creative styling so you can incorporate unique special touches into your day. Exquisite design and breathtaking photography is a part of that, and today’s feature is more than a little special for me.
Working alongside the uniquely talented Verona Lain Photography, I crafted the calligraphy pieces in today’s feature by hand using divine papers from Paperchase and a traditional dip pen and ink. (Join me for a calligraphy workshop in Manchester next Friday if you’d like to learn to write like this!) They fit so perfectly with the little details: the wonderful ring from the London Victorian Ring Co. in its adorable box by La Petit Box. The silk ribbons by Kate Cullen are, as always, the prettiest touch.
Bright, funky florals don’t immediately conjure up Old Hollywood glamour… but by using them as a modern twist on a classic theme they can really bring your wedding to life! I adore this shoot for its contrasts; timeless fashion and vibrant styling touches – it’s all so gorgeous and the flowers are ahmaaaazing!
The shoot is all about glamorous vintage wedding inspiration with a modern twist. The Brooklands Museum is a very quirky venue with a retro atmosphere where garage doors, old petrol stations, vintage cars and old staircases make an interesting backdrop.
Somerley Estate sits right on the Dorset and Hampshire borders and is the stunning backdrop for this inspiration shoot. A privately owned home and wedding venue, the house was designed in 1750 and has been in the Normanton family for five generations. Somerley is gorgeous, (very) grand and has a lot of history. With this shoot I wanted to bring a little piece of understated contemporary style to blend with the traditional luxury surroundings.
