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 See more of Zita’s work here.
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.

Clare and James had a colourful wedding when they married this April at Aynhoe Park. They combined a traditional Church ceremony with a bold and quirky reception. I’m delighted that their wedding has been featured in Brides magazine which you can see below.
Hollie & Dom were married last Autumn at the ever incredible venue, Aynhoe Park. This wedding has been featured on Rock My Wedding which they claimed (and I agree!) had some of the best aisle style they’ve seen! Hollie ensured that the Autumnal theme was brought indoors to the orangery, using leaves to pave the way down the aisle, but also a stunning arch to frame them.
So what happens when someone in the wedding industry gets married…a whole lot of pretty! Maids to Measure is a unique, UK based bridesmaid dress company and the brain child of Sinclair and her sister, India. So if anyone can have 13 bridesmaids, it’s Sinclair!

.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.
I’m excited to be able to share Jo & James’ white wedding from last summer with you…I had to keep it under wraps as it has been published in Brides magazine! Jo & James hosted a black and white wedding, asking the men to wear black tie, and the ladies to wear white. I love to be able to blend in as a guest at weddings, and welcome any excuse to buy a new dress, so I too wore white. I started the day by joining Jo and her bridesmaids at Shoreditch House where they had stayed the night before. Jo had a plaited up do by Barber and Parlour and Mac did an amazing job with the make up (and also saved the day with the bridesmaids make up appointment falling through on the day! Phew!) Jo said: While planning my wedding I was also designing the V&A Wedding Dresses 1775–2014 Exhibition so I was overwhelmed with amazing inspiration and resources at my fingertips. Choosing the right dress very difficult. I narrowed it down to the style I …
