Laura and James were married on the 2nd August 2014, hosting their reception in a pub garden in Hertfordshire. Their marquee was decked out in the prettiest green and pink details, with lanterns and travel inspired stationery too.
I adore the muted green glam bridesmaid frocks against the fluffy pink bouquets and the big smiles all day long.
Laura was so very elegant in her flowing JLM Couture gown with long veil while groom James wore a blue Next suit. Gorgeous.
Thanks so very much to Zoetrope Photography for providing the lovely imagery today.

This one is for my wonderful photography colleagues :-)
“I attended Photo Field Trip in the US earlier this year and found it hugely inspiring. It was as far away from a corporate conference as you can get, with all of the teachers hanging out with the attendees, camp fires, parties and a completely unique, shared experience. I knew I had to bring something similar to the UK. As well as all of the amazing workshops and activities we’re planning, we’ll be having an epic closing party where campers can let off some steam before the start of the new wedding season”.
And so the Snap Photography Festival was born. The event is being held from the 13th – 17th April 2015 at Fforest, Wales, complete with a stellar line up.
“A world class line up is announced as part of Snap, the UK’s first ever photography festival aimed at wedding and lifestyle photographers . The launch of www.snapphotofestival.com showcases the first ever festival of this kind in the UK. Held at the beautiful Fforest resort, in West Wales, the festival will run to the same format as a music festival but is designed as an immersive learning and creative development experience for more than 100 photographers from all over the world. Some of the world’s most inspiring wedding photographers will be teaching alongside the UK’s finest home grown talent, as well as photographers outside of the wedding genre.”
A happy Monday to you, I am raring to go with a super gorgeous celebration this morning.
WWW readers Fiona and James tied the knot on the 14th June 2014 holding their reception at the Bake Barn in Wiltshire. They hoped to have an intimate and personal day with 40 wedding guests and informal seating for a relaxed atmosphere.
I love the effort they put into their décor, with 1000 home-made origami cranes and a home baked wedding cake. YUM. There were gorgeous blooms, vintage lampshades and an illustrated owl.
Fiona looked so beautiful in her lace ‘Bronwyn’ by Maggie Sotterro gown while James donned a blue Reiss suit. Perfection.
Thanks goes to the utterly wonderful James Melia Photographers for sharing these images today.

I hope you are having a lovely chilled out weekend. Things have been non stop recently and the weeks are absolutely flying by. Our new arrival W is 2 months old already and is doing great.
I can’t say things have been all smooth sailing and dream like. Running a business with a new born is tough. As much as I’d love for all my time to be devoted to W, the reality is I just can’t. It has been a juggle and one which I hope will benefit us in the next couple of years, so that I can work from home with W by my side.
Things are slipping into more of a routine and I hope I can fit in a baby group once a week at least to meet other mums and for W to make some little friends.
Are there any other working mums out there? I’d love to hear your experiences of being self employed with a baby. I only started WWW once A was 6 months old, so this is a new experience for me this time around :-)
On another note G is having a little birthday party today. He turns the big 30 this week (sorry G hehe!) and I want to wish him a brilliant birthday. Fingers crossed we can sneak out for a little lunch next week to celebrate.
So before I leave you to enjoy your Sunday, here is a teaser of tomorrow’s gorgeous wedding…

Trust me when I tell you it’s one beauty of a day :-)
Big love XOXO Lou
If you are planning on having a love shoot, you are just going to adore these inspirational images today.
Taking inspiration from the great outdoors; Kelly Brown Photographer and Rock Paper Square got together to create this shoot with real couple Jon and Shell. I adore the cosy blankets, rustic attire and woodland setting. Dreamy.
“Always ready for an adventure, Kelly Brown Photographer and Rock Paper Square teamed up to create this fun outdoor, camping shoot inspired by the beauty of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They took real life (and in love!) couple, Jon and Shell, out to the remote Sidney Spit Island for a day of hiking, picnicking, music making and camping. The whole island was theirs for the day, to get lost in love and explore the beauty of nature and each other.”
