Inspiration for a Quintessentially English Wedding

Today I wanted to share with you some beautiful images from a styled editorial wedding shoot that I created back in the early Spring with a wonderful team. I adore creating wedding styled shoots - they are a great way of a team of wedding suppliers coming together and creating work to showcase what we can do to our future brides and grooms. Collaboration is key and working with the right people, and this team was just perfect. Here are some inspirational images for a quintessentially English wedding…

Beautiful On-the-Day Stationery For Your Wedding Styling

When you think about all of the components that you need to organise for your wedding, or more specifically the wedding styling, you can quite often forget the stationery and the importance of it.

A Romantic & Flower-Filled Outdoor Styled Wedding Shoot

Back in October I took part in a styled wedding shoot amongst an abundance of beautiful flowers in a stunning rural setting in the Kent countryside.

My Elegant Heirloom Christmas Decor

For years now I've always gone down the traditional route of red & gold Christmas decor and whilst I am a traditional girl at heart, I fancied something a little different this year. Not drastically different - you won't catch me going all modern - but I've cut the red out of the Christmas tree, and it is mainly full of gold baubles, apart from one new special one that gave me the inspiration for my table...

My Boot Sale Top Tips and Fave Vintage Finds for Weddings and Home Styling

I love a boot sale and would probably go to one every day if I could / had enough 20ps. You can find so many gems of all sorts - fruit & veg, plants, kids' toys, bacon butties... but obviously the reason for why I love them so much is for all the vintage treasures. Vintage prop/decor hunting is at its best at boot sales and I have found some of my favourite pieces at them.

Let me show you some of my pieces that I use in my wedding styling ...

My Vintage Weekend in Rye

I recently spent the weekend in Rye. I absolutely love this little town, and if you love historic places, beautiful old buildings and quaint little shops & restaurants, you need to pay a visit. For me, Rye sings out vintage. It makes me feel happy walking around the cobbled streets in my vintage dresses, especially if the sun is shining (we were lucky on that count!).

Fancy an Elegant Vintage Wedding? Take a peek at my vintage china styling...

I'm a firm believer that you shouldn't leave your best in the cupboards to gather dust. Get those pretties out, use them and display them, and if you're anything like me, you'll love to use them for pretty pictures too!

As I have an array of vintage china at my home, some special bits of my own and items from my prop cupboard that I like to use when they're not being hired out, I love to have my tea & cake in/on them, and to use them as often as I can.
