It is common knowledge that finding one bridesmaid dress to suit all is almost impossible. 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!
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.
I’m so excited to finally share this Summer at Sezincote wedding inspiration with you. I was instantly spellbound by the Sezincote Estate. I’ve spotted it before between the Cotswold hills but the drive up to the House is probably the most magical for a wedding venue. You’re then lead up to the big reveal of the 200 year old Mogul Indian palace which is simply breathtaking. What a setting for a wedding!
Working again with the incredible Zita Elze and her students attending the Wedding Design – Advanced Master Class, the creations of Noriko Kondo from Japan have been featured on Flowerona: Florist Friday. The student This was the third time Noriko has studied with Zita and she says that: “Every time she pulls out some of my hidden, unknown ‘inside’ emotions to enable me to create beautiful pieces. She’s a true magician. This is the distinctive thing about her course, always! Creativity, surprise and art. The working process is intense and tough but I was proud of myself and happy at the end of the courses every time. These feelings motivate me to go to the next level.” Noriko’s designs featured ranunculus, roses, craspedia, scabious seed heads, eucalyptus and bupleurum. They’re perfect colours for a fresh, spring wedding, wanting to bring the outdoors in with those gorgeous greens. Zita Elze Incase you missed my previous post with another students work of Zita’s see it here. See more of Zita’s work here on her own website.
The idea of this shoot came about from a collaboration between myself and Indulgence Catering, a boutique catering company that I work with often at weddings. One of our regular venues together is the indescribable Aynhoe Park so we just knew we had to use this as our location. We created a stunning, seasonal inspired shoot in the Orangery of Aynhoe.
I’ve worked closely with Zita Elze for some years now. Recognised worldwide, Zita is a incredible floral designer. She shares her knowledge on advanced wedding design courses at the Zita Elze Design Academy. One of Zita’s students, Kim Soo Yeul who’s work I photographed has been featured in Wedding Flowers magazine.
.Something blue was inspired by the private dining room at Paradise by way of Kensal Green. The room has the most gorgeous tones of blues which I wanted to be the emphasis of the shoot. Collaborating with a fantastic team, I drew in cool blues, greys and golds throughout all aspects.

This post has the wow factor! Drum roll please…for a real flower wedding dress! Back in October I visited Brides The Show in London. I really can’t recommend visiting this show enough. Hosted by Brides magazine, it really is an industry leading show. There is a fabulous array of suppliers, inspiring talks, DIY workshops and the catwalk show is always a work of art. The highly sought after florist, Zita Elze provided a show stopping display, which did in fact bag her the Editor’s Gold Award.
