How does hanging hops and suspended Edison bulb lighting sound to you? This wedding really is a feast for the eyes so enjoy! Having photographed Thomas’ sisters wedding back in 2015 I was so excited to hear from Tom & Sophie. For me this is always the biggest compliment I can have – returning families! Sophie & Thomas chose to host their wedding at Sophie’s parents home. The perfect Shropshire wedding was due! Marquee weddings are always personal favourites of mine. They are a blank canvas and allow the couple to put their personal stamp on the day. Sophie and Toms was no exception.
When the industry mastermind Sundari from The Wedding Stylist approached me to work on a Home Creations shoot I was instantly captivated. This was a truly organic experience – just myself, The Wedding Stylist, Sundari and the wonderful Charlotte from Verity & Thyme. Hosted in Sundari’s beautiful home, the space alone was inspiring, these two ladies brought so much more to the experience too. It really was a dream day. So often I’m guilty of creating beautiful shoots with around 18-20 suppliers. Granted, not everyone is present on the day, but it is a huge team effort and a big job! How refreshing to strip it back and just have the three of us. Natrually it does help when the super talented florist is also a mega babe and part time model. Surrounded with inspiring chat, great coffee and local food, we really did feed our souls.
Rebecca asked me to photograph her branding shoot for the launch of Rebecca K Events. It was such a treat for me to walk into a shoot knowing absolutely nothing and seeing all of the amazing details that Rebecca had sourced. A luxurious aesthetic with soft pink hues and stunning tulle dresses (we all love tulle, right?!) It really was so inspiring, so I hope that it fuels your moodboard too.
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!
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.
Harry and Stefanie chose to host their luxury wedding at home. Using whites and subtle Pantone greens throughout, this stunning setting was the most perfect backdrop for their wedding day. In my opinion, a home wedding is wonderfully personal, and with a home like this, why would you look elsewhere?
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.
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! Each bridesmaid with a bespoke bridesmaid dress to suit her style and 2 twins, the maids of honours, looking fabulous flaunting the new print!
This week it’s all about the placement ring! Last week I photographed a collaboration with Knot & Pop who are a duo of luxury wedding planners and creative event producers. We’d teamed up with the wonderful Julie from Hollyhock Lane who produces hand drawn, illustrated wedding stationery.
