Back in July my postman arrived with the best little box of goodies I think he’s ever brought me. I was in the midst of planning a photoshoot, and had nervously contacted a handful of my favourite wedding creatives to see if they’d like to get involved. Every single yes meant an indrawn breath and a silent squeal of excitement. But when Clare Lloyd said she’d send me some of her work I was thrilled.
Did you see our gorgeous summer wedding style feature this lunchtime? We fell head over heels in love with all the wonderful greenery and timeless styling details – which couldn’t be a better fit for the English Wedding Blog! And to keep our summer spirits high, I have a really special, magical film from the shoot to share with you now.
Huge thanks as ever to McGill Sister Films for being so damn amazing at what they do; and big love to Kirsten at The Little Wedding Helper for putting all of this loveliness together and sharing it with us today!
I adore today’s shoot, which really celebrates the end of summer… the details and styling are beautiful and I love the setting: a gorgeous ‘working’ greenhouse full of life and growing things. Perfect for the beginning of your new life together, don’t you think?
Every little detail works so beautifully in this shoot: from the abundant florals to the gorgeous hair accessories by one of my fave designers, lovely Clare at Vintage Button Bridal Designs. The stationery is elegant and timeless, the cake sweet as can be. It all makes me feel as though summer is a neverending adventure!
Were you around for our feature with Vintage Button Bridal Design the other day? It has to be one of my absolute favourite shoots of the year – inspiration for a sublime wedding from some amazing suppliers, with a beautiful, balletic twist. (love that word! Balletic!)
I feel equally spoiled and delighted to be sharing more from Vintage Button’s Clare Lloyd today, from the same photoshoot but with a completely different look and style. Of course we’re featuring Clare’s stunning handcrafted hairpieces and necklaces, but this time with a statement bouquet full of vibrant florals with a lush silk ribbon, and Old Hollywood inspired styling.
Discovering amazing creatives is my favourite thing. Being a wedding blogger means I get to see the newest and best ideas in wedding styling – and I’ll always share my favourites with you. I feel so lucky to be sharing this breathtaking shoot, planned by Clare from Vintage Button Bridal Designs, with you today. The images are incredible, the detail and styling exquisite.
