Wedding Inspiration Shoot

I was thrilled recently to be asked to take part in a wedding inspiration shoot to showcase some fantastic suppliers, including myself! The location was a beautiful barn in the Cotswolds, which is an amazing venue for any wedding. Merriscourt is a picturesque Cotswold stone barn near Chipping Norton & is located in some lovely rolling countryside. The barn was charmingly styled for the day by Rachel from Serendipity Weddings who gave the barn a whimsical feel. Cammie, our model, was dressed by Sally Lacock who is a London based designer of bohemian, vintage-inspired wedding dresses & had beautiful hair & make up applied by Katie Reay Scott. Stunning flowers were designed by Flowers 4 Weddings who are based in Finchampstead in Berkshire. I was delighted with the images I captured on the day & please see a sneak peek of Cammie & her ‘groom’ below. There will be lots more to come so do keep an eye out!

Pinterest – A Recent Project…..

A recent project at Mark Lord Photography has been to start a Pinterest page. For any of you who are not yet aware of it Pinterest is a social media site used for the collating of images. Loved by anyone who loves the visual, it’s a great way of gathering ideas. As you drift around the web you can ‘pin’ images of the things, everything from wedding flowers to dresses, you see to one central place onto the ‘boards’ you have set up. You can also ‘repin’ images from Pinterest & follow people you admire & their boards. Pinterest can be used to collect images of anything you love or are interested in but has won the heart of many a bride casting their eye around for inspiration. Searching for vintage wedding ideas? All you need to do is type vintage into the task bar & a huge array of images will appear. Another great idea is to type in your venue name, it is always interesting to see how others have decorated the same venue. It’s really simple to use & saves purchasing lots of bridal magazines only to cut them up!

We have set up a few boards & will keep adding more so please take a look at the page here. It’s a really eclectic mix of weddings, my favourite venues, some beautiful dresses & lots more…. Feel free to repin any of my images that inspire you!

If you are already on Pinterest please follow me & my boards, thank you!

#Wedding #Flowers

Your wedding flowers are such a beautiful part of your wedding day, take time to smell your flowers before the wedding service or ceremony, they will help you relax as you will have chosen some of your favourites and maybe they will even remind you of your childhood, parents or grandparents gardens.

Find a few minutes to take in all of the wonderful flowers at your venue and see how spectacular they look. Often the church or venue will smell of the flowers you have chosen. Speak to your florist about your favourite flowers, what is in season and what they are able to get as you plan your big day. Choose flowers that remind you of your loved ones who are perhaps no longer with us.

Some of my favourite florists in the south Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire area are listed below. Check out there websites for more information.
