Today we have the film from Emma and Chris’ wedding, created by videographer Pete Cox. It’s one of those films that will bring a smile to your face and there’s no better way to start the day.

Nik and Chris' coastal farm wedding

Did you see yesterday’s beautiful wedding? If not, you can view it here – it’s full of lovely inspiration for a truly down-to-earth wedding, and lots of sound advice from bride Nik.

As promised, today I have Nik and Chris’ wedding film, which beautifully brings to life a glimpse of their wedding. Their film was created by their artist friend and film maker Pat Hurst, and Nik told me it’s her favourite memento of the day.

Behind the scenes on a bridal photoshoot

So you’ve seen all the gorgeous bridal looks from our Heaton House Farm photoshoot – and if you haven’t you can catch up on my introduction, part one and part two.  Today I wanted to share some of the behind-the-scenes pictures that Jonny Draper captured, because I thought you might like to see what goes into putting together a photoshoot.

Wedding flowers for photoshoot

When it’s a cold blustery day in April and you’re doing a shoot on a working farm it’s not all glamour.  There is one brave model in a wedding dress to keep warm and smiling (mind you, our model Lizzie was incredible and cheerful throughout), there are cows and calves to manoeuvre into shot (thanks to Sarah Heath!), and somehow to get a girl in a big white dress onto a horse.  It is all great fun.

Here’s the fab video of the day from Rebecca Reville Videography:

Loving the leggings and socks to keep warm…

Charlie Scribble animated save the date

It’s Sunday and I thought I would share something a bit different to the normal inspiration-type posts.  This is an incredible animated ‘save the date’ from Charlie Scribble, one of the talented businesses you can find on the directory.  Charlie Scribble can bring your wedding stationery to life with their stop motion animations like this Padstow inspired ‘save the date’ they created for one couple…

As well as being incredibly cool and quirky, you eliminate the need to send out paper ‘save the dates’ to everyone, instead you can just email people the link, or if you have a wedding website you can embed the animation onto a page.  Visit Charlie Scribble to find out more about the animated stationery that they can offer you.
