This afternoon’s wedding is guaranteed to make your heart catch in your throat. For a start it takes place by the side of a loch – Loch Shiel to be precise – on Glenfinnan Monument beach in Scotland.
Yes folks, this afternoon we’ve gone beachside.
Bob and Helen decided to break with convention and do a first look before their ceremony cue mad scrambles up a hill and over a river or two. An inspired decision in my personal opinion and absolutely most definitely worth it because the shots of the two of them looking over the loch are breathtaking.
And that’s not all – I’ve decided that Helen’s buxom bouquet is possibly one of my favourite wintry bouquets I’ve seen on these pages – the perfect palette of alabaster tones splashed with the briefest touch of purply violet.
And just wait until you see where Helen and Bob hosted their wedding breakfast – a perfect log cabin-esque inn filled with warmth, log fires and a whole heap of dancing.

All you need is love, love is all you need – The Beatles” – I feel blessed every time I’ve the opportunity to take pictures of people in love: love is the most precious, powerful and magic of things. That’s why I put so much passion into my job, and that’s why I cannot wait to have a cup of coffee together and hear from you about your love story!
We have a seaside treat for you lovely folks this morning. Mandy and David’s outdoors affair on the Dorset coastline is an absolute stunner from start to finish. My Favourite things from this vintage seaside themed wedding are the old school ice-cream bike, the creative home made stationery and those cliff top deck chairs… Especially the shot of the happy bride and groom holding hands and reclining.
A perfect keepsake from the ever skilful photographer Mister Phill
There is sunshine outside, proper actual sunshine in February. I know, who would have thought it?
To celebrate this tiny window of Spring we’re sharing with you a super colourful bloom-packed extravaganza that should give you plenty of inspiration for your forthcoming wedding. I have always wanted to wear a full-on fresh flower crown, and it’s no secret that a backless number is my favourite type of dress, this feature therefore has been an absolute pleasure to put together.
I am particularly enamoured by the outdoors table set up, if only the UK weather could be relied upon to always offer the opportunity of table dancing amongst the crockery, pretty paper goods and stylish centre pieces, now that would make for a fun reception. Oh and a swing. Every W-day needs a swing.
All of the pretty images are by Katherine Ashdown.
Ooooh Emma’s lashes! so glamorous – love. And then there’s her headpiece and her beautiful gown and the amazing bouquet….the spiky slightly urban-esque Autumnal design is so unique and contemporary.
I’m also enjoying the mix of bold jewel tones for maids, that way all of Emma’s best girls were able to wear a shade that they would feel comfortable in.
My favourite detail though has to be the clever “alternative to a traditional guest book” idea – Alex’s stepdad made it himself, such a lovely keepsake for the home after the big day has come to an end.
Did I mention the bouquet?
It’s a controversial one this afternoon.
A post that hopefully will stir up a bit of debate and discussion amongst you and get you chatting about your likes, dislikes and pet hates.
2014 is apparently the year of the flower…at weddings that is. Where questions such as ‘how many tiers should my wedding cake incorporate?’ and ‘where shall I seat Great Aunt Mabel?’ once ruled supreme now it’s all about which flowers to use, how many and what your wedding flower theme should be.
Yep folks, all things of the floral variety are getting a serious upgrade.
In my opinion this is no bad thing. I confess I’m somewhat biased when I say this given that I am a self-professed frustrated wannabe-florist but I’ve an inkling that many of you will agree with me. In fact I’d be interested to hear how many of you are considering weaving blooms and foliage into your wider wedding decor. Floral arch anyone? How about an elaborate flower installation over your dance floor? Or a wall full of blooms for your table plan or escort cards?
Which got me a-thinking about wedding flower trends in general. What’s popular right now, what isn’t, which styles and themes are still in vogue from last year and the new predictions for 2014 and beyond.
Which led me to the title of this post this afternoon…is the ‘handpicked’ wedding bouquet trend over?
