This utterly romantic woodland wedding shoot reflects the natural beauty of the English countryside through Linda’s latest unique collection of free spirited eco friendly wedding dresses. Totally relaxed with an alternative edge, the collection embraces raw Nature just as she is.

The shoot, which started out as the joint vision of a romantic beach shoot between Linda and photographer Katy McDonnell, set out to showcase more diversity in the models than we usually encounter in your average cookie cutter styled wedding shoot. 

Of course this is what I would expect of Linda, a champion of diversity!

Nature it appears, had other plans, and they ended up in a woodland dell with the sunlight playing through the trees, dancing with the models - a naturally relaxed and dreamy environment for Linda’s unique designs and Katy’s photography.

I was super excited when Little Cherry recently told me about their super new range of Designer Sugarcane Bagasse Tableware – I think it is simply the most stunning biodegradable tableware available anywhere in the UK!

The range was designed by Dutch designer, Annelies Hermsen who came up with these beautiful ergonomic shapes while working closely with Michelin starred chefs looking to showcase their stunning food in equally stunning biodegradable tableware. This new range of elegant tableware, made from sugarcane, would look fantastic gracing the chicest of weddings.

You’ve got your whole wedding day planned - it’s going to be perfect, but now you’re on to the final invite list and you’re in a dilemma about the children - a real marmite subject.  You want to include your best friend’s kids, your cousin has two little ones and your Aunty’s teenagers are just about, but not quite grown up.  Do you include the children, aged 0 to 14, in your wedding plans or do you just ban all kids from your wedding party? 

I asked Becky Joiner what she thought since, being a wedding photographer, she should be well qualified to comment on the whole knotty subject - click below to read on ...
