I love how perfect Bedford School is for weddings. The venue offers a truly magnificent-setting steeped in history and tradition for any wedding. Located within 50 acres, the immaculately tree-lined grounds, with shrubs and borders, provides a glorious backdrop for photographs.

We're obsessed with this lovely shoot at The Barn at Brookend Green Farm, which is bursting full of inspiration and must-haves for any wedding day. Due to our lifestyle changes caused by COVID-19, the suppliers involved wanted to use an outdoor space to create a perfect intimate setting.

I love this shoot at The Barn at Brookend Green Farm, Beth Carlisle from Miss Carlysle and Co gathered talented suppliers to create this timeless look that's oozing with elegance. She says, “Dusty blue is a true trend for future couples, it's a fresh and stylish wedding colour that's not just for winter but can be used all year round.”
Beautiful aesthetics are seen throughout the shoot, including the hand-painted watermarked cake, an effortless flowing dress, stunning florals, blue and grey table runners and white and dusty blue stationery to bring the whole theme together.

I love this cake at Nicky and Tim's wedding that was created by Pick a Mix Bakes and Cakes. The bride says, "We had beautiful three-tiered chocolate, and vanilla sponge cake, which had a white and cream buttercream. So many of my guests said it was the best cake they'd ever had and it was huge!"

We’re obsessed with this beautiful shoot here at Your Herts and Beds Wedding magazine, which is packed full of inspiration. Shoot coordinator and make-up artist Sabina Ventriglia says, “I wanted to create an editorial-style bridal shoot on location, using all local suppliers and services so that we could all benefit from the feedback and interest from potential brides in the area. I’ve worked with both the photographer and hairstylist many times before and knew they’d help me create my vision. I pulled a mood board together and it was such a real team effort!"
