So, you might know by now I have a little crush on film photography. There’s just something about the softness & light that seems to perfectly fit the romance of a wedding day. And I think it’s rather lovely this twenties-inspired celebration was captured on film by talented Charlie of CKB Photography – a medium which gives the images a timeless elegance and a endless sense of style. Add to the mix a Jenny Packham dress, emerald & gold peacock-inspired details from PaperKnots and the simply stunning Maunsel House as a backdrop and you’ve got yourself one simply beautiful wedding!
Just how gorgeous is the soft, natural look Ana created for our New Romantic bride? Well, today you can learn to recreate the look yourself in our next Style Guide Tutorial! For weddings with soft romantic creams, blushes and golds this is a dreamy look which will work with your overall palette. If you want a contemporary, classic look that’s all about the eyes, then this is the perfect look for you.
We’re signing off to enjoy a few days of sunshine in the countryside! Enjoy the Easter break and heaps of love to all of you tying the knot this weekend! xo
Morning lovelies! Before we head off on a sunny Easter break, we’ve just got time to share with you some pretty bridal accessories and a glowing bridal shoot from Jules Bridal Jewellery and photographer Amanda Wilcher. Together, they created a striking yet beautiful set of images to showcase the new collection of accessories from Jules Bridal Jewellery. The collection itself takes inspiration from nature, combining rustic elements and shapes of leaves and flowers, all delicately beaded with a touch of sparkle. It’s filled with brow-bands and statement headpieces – perfectly on trend for 2014 brides with making an impact high on the agenda!
Hi lovelies! Today we welcome back Megan, our Autumn real-life bride who’s sharing her hunt for the perfect venue. Once you’ve picked your venue, all the other ideas and details start coming together (I promise, they really do!), so we know it’s a tough one! Megan’s search involved satisfying hubby-to-be Olly’s foodie cravings, her own (imagined!) dream venue, a change of date and a cross-Europe move. So if she can do it, I know you can too!
I’ve had the image of the perfect wedding location in my mind for as long as I can remember. The big problem with the image in my head is that it’s not a real place. It was constructed entirely in my (very detail-specific) imagination, bit by bit, over my entire life. And the place I created set some very high standards for any real location I would come upon. I am Catholic, and knew from the beginning that the ceremony would be in a church. The reception venue, however, was an entirely different matter. I have officially banned myself from Pinterest because, after years of knowing I wanted an elegant, traditional location, I found myself thinking, “Maybe a shabby chic farm party is the way to go…! Ahhhh, but this penthouse loft with panoramic city views is sooooo cool!”. It’s great to explore the options, but I came back to what I knew I wanted from the start.
Sometimes I receive submissions so breathtakingly beautiful that I have to actually pinch myself to check that it’s real and not some figment of my imagination. One of the biggest blessings for any blogger is to share the most beautiful inspiration out there, and inspire you to incorporate some of the ideas into your own big day. As the Spring blossom holds on to the branches here in the UK for just a few more days, I hope this shoot inspires to you get out there and make the most of this, surely the prettiest, season!
Submitted by Darya, of Organic Album, and Victoria of NW Luxury Events, this purely romantic elopement shoot was set in a beautiful blossoming orchard, under branches laden with the prettiest pink petals of Spring. It’s dreamy, it’s inspiring, and my words simply do it no justice. This is one where the pictures need to do the talking…
