FUN & COLOURFUL FESTIVAL INSPIRED WEDDING AT THE WELLBEING FARM

Ok, I’ll be honest, I love reliving my own engagement story to whoever asks, I honestly think it’s one of the most exciting things about the whole marriage process. Granted, I haven’t got married yet, but when I ask anyone else about how they got engaged, I can still see that glimmer of excitement in their eye as they relive it like it was just yesterday. Just like Lucas and Bekah who met at Keele university back in 2007. 7 years later Luke proposed whilst they were away for a week in the lake district, I’ll let Bekah tell you the rest…

“Lucas booked a wonderful hotel called The Samling in Windemere, where we stayed for the night and had the BEST food I have ever tasted! After tea, we went back to our room and he got down on one knee and proposed. Needless to say, I was very chuffed and said yes.”

WHEN THE CARNIVAL COMES TO TOWN…

Colourful retro carnival wedding styled shoot (5)Now that you are engaged, you will probably find yourself looking all over the place for inspiration for your wedding, whether it it be the real weddings on blogs or the latest trend guides in magazines but have you ever thought of checking out styled shoots for a little bit of inspo?? We absolutely love sharing them here because unlike real weddings, vendors have total freedom to go all out and create something epic, no holds barred. Personally I think it’s a great way to not only get an idea of the suppliers personality but is also a great way to get your own creative juices flowing, the realisation that they sky really is the limit.

One of our favourite photographers, Schellie from Six Hearts Photography, tells us why she loves to work on styled shoots, “We love working with other professionals, so when an idea comes to mind, we jump on a chance to be creative with our “Friendors” for an non commissioned project where we have full creative freedom. We call them “Inspiration Collaborations”.
