I’ve been so very lucky with the collaborations I’ve been asked to be a part of over the last couple of years. Working with talented people like Amy Swann and Jo Bradbury is an absolute dream – between them they transform my calligraphy by surrounding it with beauty. The florals in this blog post are out of this world – Fletcher & Foley we LOVE you!! I will forever be grateful to everyone I’ve had the pleasure to work with – and I hope there’ll be many more collaborations in the pipelines for the future. My calligraphy pens are ready!

Approach any wedding creative with an idea for dramatic and beautiful styling, and they’ll be your best friend forever. There’s something especially exciting about working with darker colour palettes, dramatic contrasts and an alternative wedding look which we all love. I was thrilled to be asked to create stationery for this breathtaking styled bridal shoot with Jo Bradbury Photography last year. It’s one of my favourite collaborations of all time and I’m so excited to be sharing it with you today! Jo has an artfulness to her photography which I absolutely adore. We’ve featured her beautiful weddings on the blog before – she works across the north west, photographing dreamy celebrations in a romantic editorial style.

The shoot has already been featured in the beautiful Unveiled magazine – you can still buy previous issues here – so you may well have seen some of these pics in print already. If you haven’t, then this will be a treat for you today! As much as I loved writing the calligraphy pieces (gold ink on black textured papers is my fave!) it’s the flowers and cake which steal my heart.

Almost every morning you’ll find me on the beach, or in the hills gazing down at the estuary below the village where I live. I have a thing for beach weddings – they’re the most amazing thing ever! I love the portraits of Michael & Sara, especially the black & white images on the sand… they’re gorgeous and this is incredible!

Photographers Emily & Steve told me “The Grand Hotel in Swanage is perched right on a cliff with steps down to the beach! It was stunning and the perfect location for a summer wedding. It was the first wedding we’ve been to where the guests suddenly started to serenade the couple with ‘Love is all around’. They were all swaying their arms and really getting into it! It was so much fun!”

My dress was in the first shop I went to and I hadn’t ever seen a wedding dress similar to it. I liked the front with a bit of sparkle but fell in love with the back with the cowel back, buttons and train. I did go to another shop to have a look but there was nothing anywhere near as beautiful so rushed straight back to Village Brides to buy it.
