The Joys of Springtime

A year ago I came up with an idea of creating an Easter inspired photo shoot, so that I could create some lovely inspiration for our spring brides. We were lucky to be involved in a fabulous wedding fayre at Keythorpe Manor around that time which was the perfect location for our shoot, and it was hosted by our great friends at Save The Date Magazine.

This beautiful photo shoot which was all about spring and nature in a stunning location couldn’t have gone any better…. Here are a few pictures to get us started.

My brief was simple…. Springtime, Easter, Furry friends and colours which are not typical of springtime and texture. Wood, lace, feathers and eggs of course! I wanted to show that you can use different colours, tones and textures if you think out the box because they really work. I really love all the spring colours that are around at this time of year but you can still create a great style using alternatives. Take a peek and let me know what you think.

All That Glitter’s

Today I am writing my first post for Today’s Mood, these post’s are all about inspiration. When starting to plan your wedding it can be quite confusing as there is just so much choice and in some cases, almost too much! So the trick is to structure your theme or colour palette, that way you have a fine balance with the overall finished look, too much and it’s going over board and not enough and you don’t fulfil your style ideas.

So happy reading and if you want me to blog about any particular style or look in the future then just leave a comment below and we will try and feature it. <3

On a Monday afternoon there is nothing like a bit of shine to help with the start of the week, so here is my first blog post for Today’s Mood. I myself am a little inspired with this theme because of a friend who really does love a bit of glitter and it makes me want to put together a styled shoot using this theme, so you never know, there may just be more glitter again sometime soon.

Friday Friends :) Positively Premier!

Back to Friday’s Friend’s after a family wedding, my sister’s to be precise, and what a lovely day it turned out to be!

This company really has gone from strength to strength with their wedding business, having recently added so many more lines that fit in with todays modern wedding, they are able to help so many clients achieve a great atmosphere.

I can recommend them highly and have at times used many of their products for events we have held. This week’s friends are Premier Weddings & Events and they certainly are premier….

PREMIER WEDDINGS & EVENTS

Ben started Premier Weddings & Events and pretty much was the first person in the industry that I had the pleasure to speak with. To say he was on hand for good advice and support really is an understatement, he really is one of those people who is happy to help.

Meeting like-minded business owners in this industry really is what it’s all about, I like to be able to recommend good people and good businesses, and these guys really are at the top of the list. Friendly and enthusiastic about what they do, with a quality team it’s exciting to see them grow.

For our third year in business we had a lovely party to which Ben provided us with a dance floor and our logo in lights. As you can see by the picture below, it looked very smart. After a little issue with the dress code (bad reading of the invite he told me, I just think he was rebelling! he he) he still managed to help us celebrate the night away.

Well the great thing about premier is what they specialise in, whether you need a DJ, a dance floor, decorative lighting or backdrops they can help with many funky items to set a great scene for your wedding. Recently added to their stock has been an item that seems to be sought after in bucket loads, led furniture. At our recent Eve Lily Wedding Show at Shearsby Bath they produced led spheres that were positioned outside, these completely wowed our guests with how lovely they looked. Check out their web page to see what they can offer you. http://premier-event-services.co.uk/

Friday Friends :) The Talented Nigel Ord Smith Photography!

Today’s Friday Friends is someone who see’s wedding’s from a totally different perspective from most, as they get to see it behind a lens. I am so happy that not only have they agreed to be a Friday Friend, but mainly because they can let you in on their thoughts, and great tips when its comes to your wedding day.This can only be a great thing when planning or making wedding related decisions.

I can’t speak highly enough of them, they make wedding’s a joy from start to finish and throw in a few jokes along the way (I can confirm, I also have been subjected, I mean had the pleasure of listening to these jokes on many occasions). A quality guy, with a quality brand and a quality camera, which is a must, seeing as he is an amazing photographer!

So here’s to this week and the fantabulous Nigel Ord Smith……

NIGEL ORD SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY 

I actually cannot remember exactly where and when I met Nigel, a passing meeting when at a local venue rings a bell. This obviously sounds a little rude and as if it’s insignificant, quite the opposite. The reason why I can’t remember exactly is because we have had so many more meetings, weddings, fayre’s, show’s, party’s and such like, my memory is swamped with all of them! Which is obviously a good thing.

The thing I love about Nigel other than his dry sense of humour, is that he is just fantastic at understanding what weddings are all about. How each and every one should be as important as the last. You will never be a number with Nigel and that is just how it should be with wedding’s.

The other thing I have learnt and really appreciate since knowing Nigel and other photographers in the industry, is that pictures aren’t just pictures, they are your wedding. The one reminder when the day is over and all your friends and family have gone home, when you are back from your honeymoon and the day is becoming a more distant memory, and when you have sent your thank you cards out, they will be the one thing you can turn to, to remind yourself of just how great a day, it truly was.

So Nigel, if you don’t already know, run’s Nigel Ord Smith Photography, he specialises in Weddings, Portraits, Boudoir and now Dogs! That’s the great thing about Nigel, he doesn’t shoot and click, he captures happiness and beautiful moments for his clients, whether it’s a bride and groom, a little fairy or a scrumptious bull-dog. (My references will make much more sense after you visit Nigel’s site, a must see. Nigel Ord Smith Photography

So far we have worked on a number of weddings together, have been partnering on some fantastic projects, including boudoir and styled shoots and have so much in the pipeline I want to squeal with excitement. He has become a wonderful friend and someone to know in the wedding world!
