A little romance for you this Wednesday afternoon in the form of a super sweet engagement shoot.
Aly and Jack headed to Leadenhall Market and St Dunstan’s in London for their loved up images. They chose the locations as they are local for the couple and some of the spots are in the Harry Potter films (my fav!). These two have so much style (I am totally coveting Aly’s polka dot shirt) and a lot of love.
Thanks to Alice Boagey for sharing these lovely images today.
On September 27th my fiancé Jack and I met Alice at Leadenhall Market in the city. We chose this particular spot because we live in the East End and Jack, indulging me a bit, knew that parts of the Harry Potter films were shot here and I’m a huge fan :-) We wanted a location that had character and was off the beaten path from more traditional London locations.
The perfect escapism for a quiet Monday afternoon. Dreamy and romantic wedding ideas with a Parisian feel.
Pretty pastels, delicate details, tulle and lush blooms create the perfect inspiration for those of you hoping to create a charming wedding. I simply adore the fine art photography, fresh make up and that cosy fluffy jumper.
Thanks so very much to Bowtie and Belle Photography for sharing this shoot with us today.
“We’re a husband and wife team known as Bowtie and Belle Photography, based in the beautiful Cotswolds. Our style is relaxed fine art photography; combining both digital and film for a timeless, romantic look.
Paris; the city of love was the inspiration for our bridal photoshoot at the picturesque Eynsham Hall in Oxfordshire.
For quite some time we’ve had one theme in our heads, an idea to create light, beautiful imagery inspired by all things Parisian. Our aim was to combine the delicate colour palette of pretty pastels with elegant classic styling; as if looking through the window of a wonderful Parisian boutique.
Working with a group of talented wedding suppliers we wanted to transport brides-to-be and show how they too can take from this style for their big day. We hope you’re inspired and love the images as much as we do.”

Take one super glam couple who are head over heels in love, place them in an incredible location and these are the results you get.
Avi and Justin headed to the breathtaking sand dunes in Utah dressed in their finest attire for their engagement shoot. I love these intimate and romantic portraits.
Thanks so much to Tyler Rye Photography for sharing these wonderful shots today, here is what he had to say about the shoot;
“This couple wanted to shoot their engagement at the sand dunes near Nephi Utah. We got there just before a big storm rolled in. The storm made the sand dunes look beautiful and the sunset was simply amazing!”
At the beginning of planning a wedding it can be tricky to pin down an idea and go with it. I hope this afternoon’s feature will assist you a little along the way, as a host of talented suppliers came together to inspire couples with this shoot.
Curious Fair teamed up with Mr & Mrs Unique suppliers to create a Moroccan Nights inspired wedding. With scrumptious delicacies, jewel tones and a lot of style.
“I run a wedding directory called Mr & Mrs Unique that focuses on unique, creative and bespoke wedding services. One of the things I love them most about my job is when our listed suppliers want to get together to create a stunning photo shoot.
Natalie from Curious Fair called me to say she had an idea for a gorgeous Moroccan bridal shoot. Curious Fair are bespoke event and handmade wedding designers. They are dedicated to bringing to life creative and bespoke events whilst providing a professional and high quality service, so I knew whatever they were thinking about creating.. it would be amazing!”
Curious Fair: “The idea for a Moroccan shoot came from a meeting via wedding hour with the delicious Mimosa catering. Their food & cafes are inspired by Moroccan cuisine, featuring rich tagines & Moroccan style sharing platters. We wanted to create a styled wedding shoot with a twist, displaying an intimate family feast rather than a structured formal meal. We decided to stick with neutral tones for the styling focusing on reclaimed wood, eclectic silverware, glass vessels, concrete vases & blue and white ceramics.
We chose to design a muted backdrop to set off the vibrancy of the rich colour flowers & Moroccan dishes. We were thrilled when Frieda & Sophia came on board to create the bold & unique floral design. The location was Brixton East, a 19th century converted furniture warehouse. Its original wooden floors and quirky details were the perfect backdrop for this intimate shoot.”

Those of you that are newly engaged may be interested in having an engagement shoot. It’s not only a great way of getting to know your photographer and relaxing in front of the lens, but it’s super fun too. And you get some lovely snaps to treasure for years to come of course.
Linzi and Dan won their wedding photography on WWW in our recent competition with Babb Photo. In a few weeks I have their gorgeous nuptials to feature (eekk), but this afternoon I am sharing their sweet Spitalfields Market engagement.
Thanks so very much to Alice at Babb Photo for providing these lovely images today.
Linzi; “Dan and I chose Spitalfields market as the location for our engagement shoot as it is where we had our first date 3 1/2 years ago. (It nearly didn’t happen though as Dan was an hour late for our first date! ) We felt that having some photos of where it all started was fitting with us beginning another chapter of our lives together.”
