Does anyone else who's just got married @beckylorddesign @dewintonpaperco just want to go back and relive the day over and over!? I still can't stop thinking about what an amazing day it was and talk about it constantly ... I must be boring my friends to death! This is one of my favourite photos from the day because to be honest it's what it was all about ... me & Ant hand in hand.
Wow what a week so far! Amazing day yesterday styling my latest shoot at @paschoehouse ... I can't wait to share this one with you! Tomorrow I'm off to London for a bit of a birthday weekend away that my gorgeous husband ( see above ) has organised. I'm not sure of everything that is going on but I know we're going to the Royal Albert Hall to see Later with Jools Holland being filmed which I'm beyond excited about! Here's to the last few days of my thirties!
I work with some beautiful venues across the South West at weddings and am really privileged to have seen some gorgeous spaces ( including this beautiful avenue of trees at the gorgeous @coombetrenchard ). As well as styling couples weddings I'm also available to venues if you would like help styling your venue for commercial shots or would like me to arrange a brand shoot for you so you have beautiful images to use on your website. Please don't hesitate to get in touch!
Unbelievably my nephew the gorgeous little chap on the left is 11 today so we're heading up to Tamworth this afternoon to help him celebrate. Looking forward to the birthday meal this evening and our usual stop at Gloucester services on the M5 on the way back ... if you've never been it's not your average service station in case you think I'm ridiculously sad! There's an amazing farm shop and butchers so I'll be hopefully picking up a few bits for Christmas whilst we're there.
My main advice to any couple I work with and speak to whether it be for their stationery or styling is to have fun with their wedding and do what feels right for them. Go with those traditions that you love and feel right for you but don't feel afraid to ditch those ones that you just don't feel comfortable with! This was our mantra throughout our wedding planning process and we ended up having the best day which was full of love and the most fun I've had in a long time!
Looking back at our wedding photos last night to pick out some of the styling I did to show clients at wedding fairs and came across this beautiful image that @clarekinchinphotography took of our venue @coombetrenchard. Totally sums up the unique magical nature of the place for me ... tucked away in beautiful gardens and woodland Arts & Crafts but with that stunning italianate terrace and clock tower you could easily be in tuscany!
Exciting morning ahead as I'm off to pick out dresses for my first styled shoot next month at the lovely @teamobrides in Plymouth. It will also be the first time since the wedding for a catch up with our amazing photographer @clarekinchinphotography who took this wonderful shot of the gorgeous floral display by @bromptonbuds at the wedding. Jura antlers hired from @virginiasvintagehire.
When your wedding venue has the most beautiful woodland imaginable it would be rude not to sneak off for some pictures with your photographer. Looking back on our photos again to an amazing day at @coombetrenchard with @clarekinchinphotography ... I need to find an excuse to wear my dress again! Although I may need to examine how much me dancing like a lunatic took its toll first!
I can't believe we've been married almost a month! Probably time for me to share some photos of our big day! Our photographer @clarekinchinphotography took some amazing photos but I love this one as we're signing the register as we both look so happy ... and you can see my feathery shoulders lol!
It's #meetthemaker week here on instagram. Day late but the first day is all about 'Who' ... so here's me. This photo was taken for our engagement shoot by the wonderful @clarekinchinphotography a couple of years ago. I am Nikki and I live with my gorgeous husband Ant in beautiful Devon.
