This is part two of the sassy London bridal shoot we fell in love with last week! (Check out part 1 here if you missed it)

sassy modern bridal style from Stoke Newington with Amanda Karen Photography

We’re talking gorgeously modern, gently alternative, glamorous wedding styling with a luxe twist. And yup, all of those things fit together beautifully. A trouser two piece by Kate Edmondson Bridal, styling by Perfectly Planned 4 You, and simple, elegant florals from Catherine Short Floral Design – basically my dream styling team. Captured by our fave, Amanda Karen Photography – this is everything.

When I scrolled through this gorgeous styled shoot I realised we’d enough stunning images to make two features for you! So here’s part 1 (part 2 coming next week!) This is absolutely glorious, contemporary chic bridal style with sass – I just know you’ll love it. Huge thanks to our lovely English Wedding member Amanda Karen Photography for sharing it with us… and to the whole team for creating something SO beautiful!

The shoot centres around super cool Stoke Newington, and was created by Lou at Lovehairbylou. The venue, now sadly closed, was Stokey’s wonderful Last Crumb Café, and the outfits are by bridal designer extraordinaire Kate Edmondson.

Regular readers will know stationery is close to my heart! As a calligrapher I’ve worked with some of the very best from Cutture to Print for Love – and one of the loveliest things about writing the English Wedding Blog is discovering new stationery designers and online wedding invitation boutiques.

I’m also a huge supporter of independent and local businesses, so I’m delighted to bring you my top picks of wedding stationery designers to watch (and buy from!) in 2018. In no particular order….
