River and Sunset Couple Shoot

spwow-15

Couple shoots are such a great way to capture, professionally, beautiful images of you both that you’ll be able to look back on with pride for ever. I know there’s a place for snapshots and selfies – they’re really special in their own right – but a professional photographer is able to bring so much in terms of technical expertise and getting the best out of you both.

I love this one from Sheryl of Oobaloos Photography, where the couple even ended up posing for shots in the river!

Sheryl says, “I held a competition on my Facebook page for three lucky couples to win a Sunset Couples Shoot, with me with all of the images. I was overwhelmed by the response, and I had three ways to win: the most votes, a random pick, and photographer’s choice. I met Shelley and Pete here at a wedding last year, and I loved their style and their attitude. I picked them as the ‘photographer’s choice’ winners as they fit in exactly with me, my style, and my slightly kooky ways!”

Moroccan Meets Indian Glam Wedding Inspiration

103_best-day-ever-styled-shoot
It is soooo, so cold outside at the moment, and therefore a good time to be looking at warm and summery wedding inspiration!

This styled shoot is all about the hot colours, majestic patterns and the shiny, shiny jewellery and props. It’s extremely glamorous and luxurious, as well as having quite a laid back and bohemian feel. If you want to add an extra something to your festival or field wedding, then this is the post for you…

Gothic Woodland Bridal Inspiration

fernfield_wow29
Woodland weddings aren’t just for the sunny summer months, and they don’t have to be all about the bohemian look. This inspiration shoot today shows you how good darker shades and more gothic elements can look for your wedding day. And I love that the dress is white and blue, it’s not black, and it contrasts and complements brilliantly the deeper colours and details.

Urban Burlesque Bridal Inspiration Shoot

jessicajillphotography-121

I am in love with this shoot! So much vivid colour and life! It combines so perfectly elegance with adventurousness…

Dress designer Felicity Westmacott tells me, “the theme was ‘City Burlesque Wedding’ with a Cadbury purple, gold and ivory colour scheme. We wanted to capture the two sides of our beloved London Town, so we shot on the Mall and Horse Guards Parade and also in Brick Lane: the elegant and the funky. My dress design was meant to be suitable for a city wedding and also have a burlesque, sexy, vintage feel. I used layering (a dress and coat) to give a bride the opportunity to have a sense of ‘tease’ by removing and revealing new layers and looks.”
