cakes, flowers, decor & more

 

During my work, I see and photograph so many beautiful themes, gorgeous details and incredibly inventive ideas at weddings, that I thought it was only fair to have a special place on the website to share them with you. I’ll be regularly blogging about some of my favourite details from weddings in Dorset, Somerset and beyond, both current and in the past, and why they particularly caught my eye. I’ll also be featuring some of my favourite wedding suppliers, showcasing their best work.

I do hope that if you’re planning your wedding, this area will be helpful to you and give you some great inspiration for your own wedding theme! Don’t forget, I regularly post images to Pinterest as well, so don’t forget to go follow me there, as I have a dedicated boards for all areas of planning your wedding. And, my Instagram feed is a wonderful place to get even more ideas!

Inspiration: Wedding Flowers at Shillingstone House, Dorset

Now that we're well and truly into autumn, I thought it high old time I brought you a blast of summer to remind you of what we've just enjoyed! So today on the Inspiration blog, we're going back to June to take a look at a shoot I carried out at Shillingstone House,...

Inspiration: Aircraft themed wedding decor at Coombe Lodge

When the groom is in the armed forces, then creating a wedding decor theme which incorporates his work and passion is a natural step - but making it look romantic and not too 'boy' could be a challenge! But, as you can see from this lovely wedding I shot last year at...

Inspiration: Best of the Wedding Web, 21 August 2016

Hello and happy Sunday - I hope you've had a wonderful week! Here in Dorset, the weather has been AWESOME for the first part of the week... and decidedly iffy for the second half. It's a typical British summer, is it not? That's part of the charm of living here... you...

Inspiration: Elegantly English Wedding Decor

Here's a look that NEVER goes out of fashion for weddings - the quintessentially English look! These images are from a recent wedding at Sherborne Abbey in Dorset and Brympton House in Somerset - and as you can see, the bride just loved roses (as do I!) This is a...

Inspiration: Summertime Countryside Wedding Marquee Decor

I know I blog about marquee weddings A LOT. That's because I'm fortunate enough to get the change to photograph a lot of marquee weddings! And, let's face it, there's nothing as exciting - and challenging - as taking a blank space such as a marquee and bringing it to...

Inspiration: Details – A Marquee Wedding in Symondsbury, Dorset

Today, I realised something. I shoot so many weddings with so many lovely details, and it's never occurred to me before to dedicate blog posts to the styling of each individual wedding! Sure, I've picked out certain details from some to show you, but surely it's...

Inspiration: Don’t Want Bridal Prep Photos? Try this…

Increasingly this year, I've worked with a number of brides who either don't want their bridal prep photographed, or would rather that I come in at the last moment to take a smaller number of shots, once the majority of the bridal prep has been carried out. This is a...

Special touches for the Bride & Groom: Inspiration

Sometimes, when planning your wedding decor and theme, whilst you of course want to make all the tables look wonderful, you might want to do something extra special for the top table or even just the bride and groom's places. It could be that these extra-luxurious...

Wedding Cake Toppers: Inspiration

I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of wedding cake toppers. The generic shop bought ones - you know the ones, the figurines -  scream 1980's naff. So, if you're going to go for cake toppers, you need to embrace the innate kitschness of them and really have...

To Theme or Not to Theme? : Inspiration

Say 'wedding themes' to many people, and you'll see that involuntary wrinkling of those nose - yes, the 'bad smell' face. Themeing your wedding is seen in some quarters as somewhat tacky, something on the 'not at my wedding' list. However, what people don't realise is...
