Hey beautiful! Welcome to the long weekend! Are you up to anything lovely this weekend? I’ll be up in the Lake District while the sun shines, I think! Before I go… a fabulous elopement shoot which is food for thought as well. This is from lovely Courage & Dash – and I adore the quietness and beauty of it all.

We are inspired by the quiet elegance of English weddings, particularly casual, homely ones which feature personal touches, particularly English antiques and trinkets. We enter the day at the point where the couple is pausing to catch their breaths and reflect: the newly-married couple is back at the family home, spending some quiet moments together and soaking in the day.

The colours are muted, the feel is peaceful. It is right after the wedding ceremony, and just before the evening’s intimate celebrations. Set in the couple’s home, which is a beautiful English period property, the bridal portraits capture the couple sharing jokes on the sofa, taking a walk in the garden outside, whispering love notes by the French windows.

The trestle tables are clothed in petrol blue with a stylish silver-grey hand dyed silk runner. Then dressed with an informal arrangement of twisted Willow branches, Eucalyptus, succulents, Waxflower and Roses amidst beautiful mini vases, tea lights and pale soft grey taper candles in gold candlesticks with a beautiful glass star to mark the special occasion. The place settings adorned with a glamorous peacock’s feather for each guest simply tied with hand dyed teal blue crushed silk velvet ribbons around exquisite silk napkins on grey plates with gold cutlery. The benches are covered in the softest sheepskins for extra cosy comfort. Tied together with an abundance of testers and colours to create a divine and whimsical atmosphere.
