Good morning all, I hope you are having a lovely week so far. Did you enjoy the 30s inspired wedding from yesterday? Today we have jumped to 2017 for our inspiration that will easily lend itself to 2018 weddings. Lots of neutrals, botanicals and boho vibes.

After​ ​a​ ​friends​ ​wedding​ ​at​ ​The​ ​Granary​ ​Estates​ ​back​ ​in​ ​2014,​ ​I decided​ ​to​ ​to​ ​get​ ​in​ ​touch​ ​with​ ​the​ ​team​ ​to​ ​see​ ​if​ ​they​ ​would​ ​facilitate​ ​my​ ​ideas​ ​for​ ​a​ ​styled​ ​shoot.​ ​A beautiful​ ​venue,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​quintessentially​ ​English​ ​with​ ​so​ ​much​ ​character​ ​and​ ​charm.​ ​After​ ​meeting​ ​Leah,​ ​the photographer,​ ​on​ ​Twitter​ ​(and​ ​having​ ​fallen​ ​in​ ​love​ ​with​ ​her​ ​work)​ ​I​ ​knew​ ​that​ ​she​ ​would​ ​understand the​ ​look​ ​I​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​achieve.

I​ ​opted​ ​for​ ​a​ ​natural​ ​colour​ ​palette;​ ​quite​ ​stripped​ ​back​ ​and​ ​neutral.​ ​I​ ​chose​ ​green,​ ​white,​ ​peach​ ​and gold.​ ​I​ ​really​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​the​ ​palette​ ​fresh​ ​with​ ​organic​ ​tones​ ​which​ ​would​ ​work​ ​cohesively​ ​with​ ​the airiness​ ​of​ ​the​ ​barns,​ ​the​ ​rawness​ ​of​ ​the​ ​internal​ ​and​ ​external​ ​brickwork​ ​and​ ​of​ ​course,​ ​the​ ​fragrant beauty​ ​of​ ​the​ ​outdoor​ ​spaces.

As​ ​a​ ​real​ ​lover​ ​of​ ​the​ ​boho​ ​trend,​ ​I​ ​chose​ ​a​ ​boho​ ​feel​ ​for​ ​the​ ​shoot;​ ​relaxed​ ​hair​ ​and​ ​make-up​ ​by​ ​Kerry​ ​of Cambridge​ ​Makeup​ ​Artist,​ ​an​ ​abundance​ ​of​ ​stunning​ ​florals​ ​and​ ​lush​ ​greenery​ ​by​ ​Clare​ ​Jones,​ ​and beautiful​ ​vintage​ ​crockery​ ​for​ ​the​ ​tablescape.​ ​Elizabeth​ ​Hall’s​ ​team​ ​were​ ​fantastic;​ ​not​ ​only​ ​did​ ​they create​ ​some​ ​wonderful​ ​interior​ ​scapes​ ​for​ ​Leah​ ​to​ ​shoot,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​outside​ ​area​ ​was​ ​styled​ ​to​ ​perfection utilising​ ​rugs,​ ​pillows,​ ​a​ ​semi-naked​ ​teepee​ ​and​ ​a​ ​gorgeous​ ​parasol​ ​from​ ​the​ ​East​ ​London​ ​Parasol​ ​Co.​ ​We were​ ​also​ ​joined​ ​by​ ​Carmen,​ ​a​ ​1963​ ​Volkswagen​ ​Cabriolet​ ​Beetle​ ​and​ ​oodles​ ​of​ ​mouthwatering​ ​sweet treats​ ​were​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​Essex-based​ ​Lucky​ ​&​ ​Co.

For​ ​the​ ​stationery,​ ​I​ ​opted​ ​to​ ​stay​ ​in​ ​keeping​ ​with​ ​my​ ​aesthetic;​ ​rustic,​ ​floral,​ ​boho.​ ​I​ ​created​ ​a​ ​suite which​ ​included​ ​an​ ​invitation,​ ​an​ ​RSVP​ ​card,​ ​a​ ​reproduction​ ​of​ ​a​ ​love​ ​letter​ ​by​ ​Keats,​ ​a​ ​menu,​ ​two​ ​place cards​ ​and​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​love​ ​story​ ​bookmark.​ ​I​ ​hand​ ​foiled​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​items,​ ​and​ ​also​ ​added​ ​some​ ​gold​ ​leaf to​ ​the​ ​bride​ ​and​ ​groom​ ​favours​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​The​ ​Willow​ ​Workshop.​ ​Zoe​ ​from​ ​The​ ​Golden​ ​Letter beautifully​ ​calligraphed​ ​some​ ​envelopes​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​GF​ ​Smith.

The​ ​weather​ ​on​ ​the​ ​day​ ​was​ ​perfect;​ ​warm​ ​sunshine​ ​with​ ​a​ ​breeze​ ​which​ ​really​ ​showed​ ​off​ ​the​ ​lightness of​ ​the​ ​Rembo​ ​Styling​ ​gown​ ​and​ ​the​ ​fluidity​ ​of​ ​the​ ​silk​ ​ribbons,​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​Kate​ ​Cullen.
