Yey, it’s Friday people!

I’ve had a smashing week, some lovely new brides have booked me for weddings next year and have been so lovely to work with already, and (drum roll please) a styled shoot I worked on earlier this year with Bristol based genius photographer Taylor Barnes Photography was published on one of my fave ever blogs Style Me Pretty.

Ashlee contacted me earlier this year as she wanted to put together a styled wedding shoot with some of the South West’s finest suppliers and she had a strong and rather beautiful vision. So of course I said yes!

We got to work on hand picking suppliers whilst I put together a design concept and moodboard inspired by figs and olives – so using deep purples and muted greens with rustic touches and more than a hint of chic. We wanted to create something that felt like it could have been held in a vineyard abroad, but with the background of a beautiful UK wedding venue instead.

Below are a selection of Ashlee’s stunning images for you to swoon over. We had two other incredible photographers with us on the day too, so I’ll be sharing their stunning work and perspectives soon… as well as a number of DIY tutorials so that you can recreate the whole look yourself. We’re good like that.

A list of the amazing suppliers involved can be found at the end…. don’t miss that bit!

I’m ridiculously proud of the whole team who worked so hard to bring this all together – look no further for if you want a super group of very talented people and you’d like to recreate this look for your own wedding. I’m also delighted to announce that I am now a member of Style Me Pretty’s very exclusive Little Black Book – another great resource for finding the very best that the UK has to offer in the wedding industry.

Lots more to come on the Jessie Loves blog soon… including a gorgeous coral marquee wedding and an amazing festival wedding that I worked on this year. I’ve had some incredible official wedding photo’s sent through to me recently and can’t wait to share some of them with you!

Best wishes

    Gorgeous & well done on the Style Me Pretty feature! I really do like adding the purple in, that looks great. Are you happy for these images to be pinned?
