Mine is an especially happy one as I get to introduce you all to the newest member of the Bridal Musings team, Claire! (More about Claire coming later this week but for now take a peek at our shiny new ‘About' page.)
Plus I get to make another introduction, one that could very well be a match made in heaven for those of you looking for your perfect wedding photographer.
Her Lovely Heart is a wedding/documentary photography agency based in the UK, managed by Marianne Taylor, who has handpicked all the photographers who are part of it.
As wedding photographers, the members of Her Lovely Heart are passionate about documenting love and ‘telling the important stories that are the beating heart of relationships'.
The photographers at Her Lovely Heart teamed up with a host of talented UK wedding pros to create a series of wedding inspiration shoots at the extraordinary Aynhoe Park and I'm thrilled to share their whimsical, ethereal and ever so beautiful ‘Romance' shoot with you all today.
(You can check out their Candy shoot on London Bride and all the behind the scenes images on the Her Lovely Heart blog.)
There's ribbon wrapped, blooms by Fairynuff Flowers, gorgeous gowns by Kelsey Genna, pretty polka dot nail art by Georgie at Polished 2 Perfection, bohemian braids by Jo at Lovehair, dreamy make up by Ana Ospina, superb styling by Charley at London Bride, and of course, exquisite photographs from Her Lovely Heart.
The team at Her Lovely Heart explain a little more about the inspiration behind the shoot:
The concept of Romance was organic femininity. It was brought together with powdery florals, pretty pastels and flowing fabrics. The loosely plaited hair, the fresh from the garden florals and the rosy glow of the make up created a natural, organic and bohemian bridal style that was enriched by the surroundings inside and out.
As a long time admirer of Marianne Taylor's work I'm very excited about this new venture. A dream team of photographers with a similar aesthetic and shared passion for capturing love, Her Lovely Heart describe themselves as ‘photographers with eyes and hearts wide open'.
If you are searching for a wedding photographer who fits that description then I suggest heading over to Her Lovely Heart, meeting the photographers and getting blissfully lost in their beautiful blog or follow them over on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
And stay tuned for even more bridal nail art ideas from Georgie at Polished 2 Perfection!
