Helena and Dale’s summer romance at the Ashes Barns

A sweet summer wedding

Helena and Dale married in August, at the beautiful Ashes Barns, a beautiful rural venue Staffordshire. Helena was keen to stay in keeping with the vibe of the venue and location and chose to have a summery, mixed flower country bouquet. The bouquet was filled with beautiful scented roses and herbs and she also wore a delicate circlet of daisy, babies breathe and lavender in her hair. I’m sure you’ll agree she is the quintessential image of the English country bride, and Dale the most handsome of grooms.

The venue decor was also very in keeping, and I filled Helena’s own collection of jugs and bottles with flowers that matched her bouquet. The cake didn’t fall short of flowers either and had a stunning selection of blooming white O’hara roses and sweet smelling spray roses.

I adore the fact that even at the end of the night, once things had turned a little more casual Helena was still sporting her hair flowers and veil! She’s such a babe!

Justine and Dan’s ice cream coloured fete wedding at Yeldersley Hall

Old school

Well this pair were up for a fun and cheeky kinda wedding day, and I guess that’s because they are a fun and cheeky kinda couple. When I first met Justine and Dan, Justine reminded me of a super cute anime heroine with her fabulous hair, awesome fringe and beautiful big eyes, and the kind of wedding they had suited their character perfectly. They wanted a fun day, that felt like an old school village fete.

Floral couture – for trees?

Dressing a tree at Clumber Park

So you may have read my post about Floral Couture here. And this is another example of what happens when HBA Photography and I work together. I decided it was time to create a couture tree and Ben made it look real sexy! You can’t improve on what nature has provided, but sometimes it’s fun to mess with it just a little! Clumber Park is just the most wonderful of places – pop along and have a wander amongst the tree, you never know what you may find there…

Aaron and Jess’s fine art affair at The West Mill

Golden hour…

Aaron and Jess are the most stunning couple, and these beautiful fine art images captured by Belle and Beau Photography are the stuff of dreams. This is what Golden Hour is all about!

This beautiful pair were married in a mid week wedding at the West Mill and they did not leave one element to chance, as Jess truly curated an affair to remember.This beautiful pair were married in a mid week wedding at the West Mill and they did not leave one element to chance, as Jess truly curated an affair to remember.

They were keen to keep the florals fresh and airy and wanted to make use of copper accents throughout the scheme, from the invitations and table names to the floral archway and the amazing copper leaf silk ribbon by Lancaster and Cornish, that we finished her bouquet with.

Wishing this couple a life time of happiness…

Fern and Pete’s Rural Spring Wedding at Beechenhill Farm

Rain rain go away…

I met with Fern and Pete a whole year before their wedding on a busy Saturday afternoon in my favourite cafe in Ashbourne. They had travelled from out of town to bring friends and family to Ashbourne, and to introduce them to the charming village that is Ilam where they would be tying the knot at Beechenhill Farm the following year.

Sarah and Tom’s rustic winter wedding at The West Mill

A flurry of confetti for this beautiful couple

There it is. My all time fav shot from any wedding. The confetti shot. So magical. Almost like a flutter of snow for the beautiful winter wedding of Sarah and Tom. Perfect capture by Kim at The Gribbons Photography.

Sarah was keen to have texture and winter foliage front and middle of the designs with the warming accents of candles. So we really pared back to flowers and ramped up the textures instead! Just stunning!

Mel and Matt’s festival vibes wedding at Somersal Cottages

A family friendly festival

I had the absolute pleasure of being invited into Mel and Matt’s home a good year before their festival style wedding. Mel and her sister Fliss made me so welcome that I didn’t really want to leave, and I would have been happy to hangout with their lovely families all evening long. One of the first things I noticed when I arrived was a fab image of the family walking through the gates at Glasto (featured in The Times no less!) and I knew these guys were serious about having fun and bringing people together.

Shoot day in Derbyshire, flowers & cakes & moons oh my!

To shoot or not to shoot!

Sometimes I participate in a photo shoot. These shoots can serve all sorts of purposes. A chance to try out new techniques, or maybe to work somewhere new, perhaps to work with people you admire, or simply because you need some really amazing pictures.

Well this shoot on an utterly miserable day in March fell into the latter category. I needed some pictures for various projects and it seemed to make sense that rather than have some rather ‘dry’ white backdrop product photography, I could make use of Ben’s awesome lighting and photography skills and have a mini styled shoot, out in Alstonfield, Derbyshire.

Flower Crowns for Friends

Creating Crowns

Collaborations are alway better than going it alone when it comes to creative projects I think? And this is where my floral accessories business began. I was commissioned by my friends at Mackney Photography to create a range of pieces suitable to use within their gorgeous styled shoots. These crowns proved so popular that I began to design more and more styles and now regularly send pieces all over the UK, Europe and even to Australia. I love this part of my business as it really is quite therapeutic working on these pieces. For some reason I often work on these early in the morning and I love sitting quietly in the workshop bringing the pieces to life. (It’s such a contrast from the hustle and bustle of working on a full wedding order)
