This colourful balloon wedding at Aynhoe Park was as colourful and contagious as the gorgeous couple getting married. For Jenny and Dave, their wedding was a celebration. What better venue to host a big party than Aynhoe Park? The colourful balloons were brought to life in the Orangery. It was the perfect backdrop to show off the punchy colour choices in all their glory.
Peonies are loved by all, with the exquisite scent, the gorgeous big ruffles and the various colours, whats not to love? With such a statement flower, it’s possible to have a bouquet with only peonies which is exactly what Lucys choice was for her wedding at Aynhoe Park.
Primrose Hill Farm oozes opportunity and it was the perfect backdrop for a four seasons shoot. I always feel theres a lot of pressure on couples to create a theme for their wedding day – whats your colour scheme is on the tip of everyones tongues. A seasonal direction creates a wonderful opportunity in my eyes. In a world where everything is available most of the year round, the four seasons would actually do you a favour. Using seasonal flowers and food is key to ensure that you’re not only avoiding spending unnecessary money where it wasn’t needed (by trying to get out of season flowers at a premium price!) but it would enable your suppliers to select the best quality for you as they will have the luxury of availability on their side.
Lucy and Mikes Cotswold wedding took place at Caswell House, Oxfordshire in May this year. Caswell House is a fantastic venue that I photograph at regularly throughout the wedding season. I was so flattered that Wedding magazine asked to feature this wedding. Lucy’s hard work could be seen throughout with the fine details and DIY aspects.
There are so many amazing sources of wedding inspiration for brides out there and I suspect you have already found your favourite UK magazines and blogs – perhaps even some overseas blogs too. I wanted to share with you some publications that you might not have stumbled across yet.
This bridal editorial shoot was for London Bride magazine. Using Kensington Roof Gardens as the location, I wanted to work with the hot colours already there in the Spanish themed gardens.
