Fiona Perry is an incredibly talented florist based in Gloucestershire. I have been lucky enough to photograph her stunning work whist collaborating on styled shoots as well as weddings. Flowers is one of those daunting areas where you really need an expert for guidance – ideas, availability, colours, seasons and cost. Where do you even start?! Even I have learnt things in this Q&A session with Fiona Perry!
Drum Roll for Pantone Greenery!!! A new year brings new trends and new colour ways. Pantone have released their fashion colour report for Spring 2017 and I for one couldn’t be more excited that greenery has made the cut.
This post is all about the best of 2016! I feel its important to celebrate, to reflect and take stock as another year closes. The main wedding season drew to a close a couple of months ago. However I have had some gorgeous winter weddings and been spending the slower pace concentrating on projects for 2017! I’ve created my #2016bestnine grid from instagram. It’s a strong mix of styled shoots, real weddings and my personal travels with an oh so dreamy colour palette. Have you created yours yet? Go to http://2016bestnine.com
This shoot was inspired by glitter – I wanted to mix an editorial look with a wearable wedding look and created varying levels of impact! Why not glam up your day look to party the night away?
This Autumn wedding took place at Gate Street Barn in Surrey. Sam and Simon chose to really run with the autumnal theme and it was stunning. Sam’s sister, Sophie just so happens to be the super talented florist behind The Bloomery in Twickenham and pulled out all of the stops.

Luckily, if this is your wish then companies such as Two Birds are a godsend with over 15 different ways to tie one dress! At a recent wedding at Soho Farmhouse all of the bridesmaids wore different dresses – they looked stunning so I thought I’d explore this idea more. Each girl had different body shapes, skin tones, hair colour and personal tastes….there was even a baby bump!
Sophie & Chris hosted their English Country garden wedding at Sophie’s parents home in Putney, London. It really was the perfect setting for them. Now living in Portland in the US it was hugely evident how important family is to them and it was fantastic to see 2 families join and traditions merge to create a truly personal day.
Light Catcher – Delicate Darkness were the outcome of two shoots on one day. With an amazing team consisting of stylist, Lucy Loves Bridal armed with multiple dresses from The Mews Bridal, Notting Hill plus dream duo Louise Seymour (MUA) and Jo Irving (Lovehair) we channeled our vision to create two contrasting looks.
Bridal knitwear is making an appearance on the wedding scene and I love it! Earlier this year I travelled to Amsterdam for a photography conference. I find myself most inspired during my travels and therefore like to take advantage of this! I wanted to take the opportunity to collaborate on a shoot as a result of being there. As a result, I reached out to cashmere bridal knitwear designers Klaartje and Ella from Madame Seguin. Brussels based bridal designer Valentine Avoh provided the beautiful dresses for the shoot with textures of layers and feathers which worked perfectly with the cashmere. The accessories from SIBO Designs brought a luxurious touch along with the statement jewellery from Cotton & Gems.
