Luxury vintage wedding styling at Hillersdon House with Jennifer Jane Photography (39)
FEATURED

Are you a country girl at heart? Did you grow up in a village, learn about the different leaves at school and grow up loving the English countryside? Then today’s feature is just for you, my lovely!

I spent my own childhood in a small village in the Lake District. Those days were all about playing out in the sunshine, and as I grew up I would explore the country lanes and fall in love with nature. My mum had “The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady” on her bookshelf; now I own a copy of my own. The illustrations capture our native flora and fauna so perfectly; Edith’s words take me back to a place in time…

Hey there lovely, how was your weekend? I’m sure I’m still covered in paint after a weekend’s decorating – and oh so ready for some wedding pretty on the blog this morning! As always, we have a STUNNING feature to kick off the week. Huge thanks to lovely Toby Lowe Photography for sending us this beautiful editorial shoot for today. I love this – the vibrant colours of the roses are stunning, the sunlight is amazing, the styling and details are gorgeous. Absolutely perfect – and all those roses are very ‘English Wedding’!!!

Toby teamed up with a team of creative wedding suppliers during the summer months at the RHS Rosemoor Gardens in North Devon. They had use of the incredible rose gardens at Rosemoor. On the shoot day they were in absolute full bloom during one of the hottest days of the year. This is one reason it’s worth spending a year or so to plan your wedding – it means you can visit your venue 12 months before your big day and see the natural features which will transform your wedding photos and make a breathtaking natural backdrop for your photographs. The shoot is stunning and we hope it will inspire those of you who are looking for unique and different wedding style ideas – still with a healthy dose of the quintessential English country garden wedding!

“The Venue – Monks Withecombe in Devon – is owned by Nicky and Simon who are just wonderful people, so welcoming. Tea and coffee were flowing and we were made so welcome. The venue is formed of an art gallery (ceremony room), and a corn barn for the reception. A floral feast of a courtyard surrounded by formal gardens, a spectacular orchard and a glorious field over looking the vast stretch that is Dartmoor. More than that, the special things that caught my eye were the rickety old door, the hand picked sweet peas from the garden and the dry petal confetti.

I’m secretly loving the fact that it’s not only wedding season right now, it’s beginning to feel like elopement season too. If you’re considering it – just do it! And if you need convincing, check out this week’s TWO elopement features on the English Wedding Blog. The first we featured on Tuesday (Daryl & Kathryn in Canada) and the second is here for you right now. Gorgeous girls Marta & Zoe have been together for 9 years, but with Marta’s family being in Brazil the girls won’t have a big wedding over here. Instead, wedding photographer Verity Westcott and a team of lovely suppliers joined forces to create a beautiful elopement styled shoot with all the ‘trimmings’!

Cornwall is the most beautiful location, don’t you think? Where would you elope, if you could?

Hints of today’s faded beauty editorial appeared in the English Wedding Bible at the beginning of the month – call it a sneak peek. There is so much more I’ve been so excited to share with you, and the styling is right up my street, created by lovely Nikki from Knots & Kisses. Her concepts are simply stunning – her eye for wedding styling is exceptional. The stationery and cake just blow my mind! Here’s Nikki to tell you more…

The inspiration for the shoot started with a visit to the wonderful Great Fulford and the beautiful but slightly dilapidated rooms with their bare brick and peeling plaster. It automatically evoked feelings of Great Expectations for me and Miss Havisham’s dining room. A feel of faded beauty and elegance which I thought would be a beautiful backdrop for a shoot.

My aim was to inspire couples to realise the opportunity to set their wedding in more unusual places than your average manor house – that industrial and run down spaces could be the perfect backdrop for a wedding.
