A lovely little love story for you WWWers this afternoon :-)
Amy and Jon had a whirlwind romance with Amy attending a family wedding with Jon within a month of meeting. Fast forward a couple of years and Jon got down on one knee and popped the question with a super beautiful ring. Now they are planning their summer wedding.
They headed to one of their favourite haunts; Old Hunstanton beach for their breezy and romantic engagement shoot.
Thanks so very much to Fran and Stef Photography for sharing their gorgeous photographs today.
From Amy: “I had been living in London for about 3 years when I met Jon. I was a production coordinator for ITV, working hard on various productions, and Jon had just moved to the Capital and started work downstairs at ITV Studios in the post production editing suites as a client runner.
We actually met at the bar next door after a busy week at work, in the height of summer. We chatted all night and within a week we’d had our first date, and within a month I’d been his date at his brother’s wedding at their parent’s house in Norfolk – meeting the whole family! We were both at that stage in our lives where we were ready to settle down with the right person.”
Those of you looking to channel a bohemian hippy laid back vibe for your wedding day, look no further than right here, right now for some super lovely inspiration.
Organic outdoor festival style bridal looks, natural blooms, with relaxed hair and make up. A super cool groom with super sized statement buttonhole and the most amazing style. Love love love.
Thanks so much to Camilla Andrea Photography for sharing her photographs with us, here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“For this shoot the main focus was taken from the Romanticism of an outdoor Festival Wedding. We wanted it to be organic, relaxed and relatively spontaneous looking.
After getting a great team of local creative’s and gorgeous models to play the part, we started putting our heads together and planning the shoot only a couple of days before, nothing too contrived, just natural and fun! I live in the countryside on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, which is always inspiring for locations and there’s a never ending choice of beautiful landscapes and countryside to explore and capture. We shot in a field making the most of a fallen tree, being the main focus for the first location.
I made some rag bunting to decorate this out of old cloths and hessian sacks. Flowers were a mix with the exquisite purple and feather bouquet and buttonhole created by fantastic Norfolk based Bramble and Berry. The more raw & untamed looking flowers for the bridesmaids and second look for Bride, were put together by Joanna Felgate – Thanks mum!
I wanted to create some cute nail art, but at the same time, wanted to keep it quite natural looking, so found a balance by painting nude nails with different little floral designs to add a pop of colour on all the girls. The girls were styled by Abi Gray who did an incredible job pulling together some laid back but feminine looks. Pastel pink/nude and white, being the main colour theme, along with plenty of jewellery and accessories. Throwing knitwear and crop tops into the mix creating that laid back effortless look and wellies were an absolute must working in British winter countryside conditions! Comfy, casual and very practical!
The second look for bride and groom was slightly amped up and exaggerated with statement buttonhole for the Groom and a gorgeous veil for the Bride made by Abi who added an adorable head chain, that was originally a necklace. We had a fabulous team on Hair and Make up. Julie Flatman and Hollie Lewis doing the girls make up & Leanne Maddock on hair and male grooming duties. The aim for the makeup was to create a stunning, yet understated look focusing on luminous skin, fresh faced rosy cheeks and minimal makeup on the eyes – with the exception of an on trend brow and luscious lashes. For hair, again, we went for a minimal ‘undone’ feel – pretty and feminine bohemian waves and gorgeous length, as if the Bride had been embracing her hippie free spirit in the hedonistic setting of a wonderful Festival Wedding!”
Today we are in Utah, for the breathtaking engagement shoot of Matt and Kelsey. Set in beautiful scenery on a Mountaintop these two are clearly in love and have so much style. Just check out Kelsey’s dreamy engagement ring… swoon!
Thanks so much to the wonderful Amber Shaw Photography for sharing her images with us, here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“These lovelies met back in their home state of Wisconsin many years back. Fast forward to today, they’re both living here in Utah because of their love for mountains, fly fishing and outdoor fun. They both took the initiative to go off-roading and hiking to seek out the locations we photographed their engagement session. It means the world to me when couples go out of their way to find a spot that uniquely fits them as a couple. During their engagements, it felt like we were on top of the world, or maybe just on top of Utah, but nonetheless. The view was breathtaking, the scenery was magical and the fall colors were brilliant. These two are currently planning their (mountainside) June 2014 wedding.”
This afternoon is all about gorgeous wedding ideas to inspire you lovelies.
Mel Wilde and Ali Moss at Long Furlong Barn dreamed up rustic red wedding ideas at a beautiful barn location. Pretty blooms and a flower crown, a Johanna Hehir lace dress, hay bales and lovely décor. So gorgeous.
Thanks so much to Mel Wilde for sharing her lovely images with us.
“Mel and Ali wanted to inspire a valentines / early Spring vibe to a barn based wedding shoot at Ali’s family venue: Long Furlong Barn. Mel wanted wellingtons, oversized hair wreaths, hay bales and all things country to evoke that relaxed elegance barn weddings uniquely offer. An exquisite Johanna Hehir lace gown, ‘Verity’, was sourced and a colour scheme of deep reds and blues to conjure all things late winter / valentines was chosen.
The result was beautiful with festive bunting, raffia tied stationery, thistle and rose based floral accessories and fabulous red hunter wellingtons. It was a whole lot of fun on the Sussex farm.”

Today we are overseas in beautiful Canada for one dreamy engagement shoot indeed.
Angela and Elliot held their shoot at Pinery Provincial Park, Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada, with a bunch of mint balloons. There was so much love, a pretty sunset and gorgeous beach location. LOVE.
Thanks so much to Jessica Bossé Photography for sharing her photographs with us today, here is what she had to say;
“Angela and Elliot are young adventurers and will be wed next September. When we were deciding on their engagement shoot location they wanted something beautiful yet different and quirky, just like them. The Pinery is one of their favourite locations to explore together, not naturally it was a perfect location to decide on for their engagement. They are spontaneous, and adventurous, so I was only half surprised when we pulled up to their car and it was filled with mint coloured balloons! We stayed on the beach at the Pinery, overlooking Lake Huron well past sunset. The light was perfect and the couple was so carefree and comfortable in front of the camera that I was able to really capture their love.”
