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.
Anna and Jamie are a young, super fun and outgoing couple and boy did their glamping wedding reflect this! Set in a secluded area of rural Northumberland, they hosted a luxurious marquee wedding with guests glamping on site!
Hannah & Steven chose to host their wedding at the ever jaw dropping Aynhoe Park. Wearing a subtle, blush pink wedding dress, Hannah was a stunning bride. Who would love a pair of those glitzy Jimmy Choos too to walk down the aisle?
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.
Bridal separates are as big as ever and the laid back look is going to continue through 2017 (and beyond!). Think back to 2014 and Olivia Palermo’s wedding – the style sensation around her wedding day look is still evident today. This post is going to guide you through various options within this style. Don’t feel that you can’t have a two piece ensemble if you’re not having a boho wedding! You totally can!
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.
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!
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.
I was delighted when Eco bridal designer Sanyukta Shrestha asked me to photograph her 2016 Haute Couture Collection. Her dreamy wedding dresses are infused with the tranquility of an ethereal goddess for wedding perfection. Sanyukta is one of the kindest, most genuine people you will ever meet. She is selflessly donating 10% of all 2016 collection sales to help the earthquake victims in Nepal, where each dress is preciously handmade. Thankfully the production team survived this tragic event, but help is still very much needed. Sanyukta’s decision to use these natural/eco fibres in her collection underlines her commitment to environment and development focusing on ‘Beauty with a conscience’. Through blending sustainability with her ethical believes, Sanyukta also intends to create opportunities for village women in Nepal, by merging and turning their traditional skills into delicate fabrics and exquisite designs. Sanyukta adds “The women of the villages in Nepal have been hand weaving fabric for centuries. The reality is, however, that this is a small cottage industry and hand looming is actually on the verge of extinction. …
