Showcasing every we love about weddings and wedding people

Do you love the ecclectic selection of ethical Jewellers on Green Union?  I’m so proud of the amazingly talented designers showcased in the Wedding Directory.

And Scandinavian design has always been one of my favourites so I’m super excited to introduce you to Norwegian-born designer and maker Stine Ingvoldstad Svendsen.

If you’ve been hooked on those Scandi thrillers and feeling the love, take a look at Stine’s work.

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.

Let me introduce you to the lovely Bea, of Botanika

She creates the most beautiful natural wedding flowers which constantly reflect the seasons and are packed full of local, British grown flowers and foliage, topped up with foraged wild ingredients.  

I love it that she is passionate about using local suppliers, not only for her flowers but also the other essential floral accessories like the natural hand dyed silk ribbons that have become most popular for finishing of her stunning wedding bouquets.
