A love of Lego and the most beautiful of flowers Doddington Hall was the perfect backdrop to the wedding of Liz and Stu photographed by Chris Snowden Photography. How did you meet - tell us a little about yourselves? We knew each other through mutual friends for a few years before we started dating. Eventually, after some not-so-subtle matchmaking, we finally got together – and thanks to our friend for locking us out of the house and leaving us in the garden until we finally kissed! How did Stu propose? Stu surprised me for my birthday with a trip to London.…
‘Le Jardin!’ A celebration of nature by the world’s most inspiring artist. Ian Stuart creates a style of gown that cannot be found in any other bridal wear label. His couture draping techniques, use of colour, texture, unusual appliques, tonal embroideries and stunning laces create an aesthetic that is both unconventional and undeniably beautiful. For his 2018 Collection, Ian has focused on capturing themes of nature within his designs, weaving together beautiful butterflies, multi-coloured flowers, Japanese cherry blossom lace, scattered petals, waterfall textures and cascading roses. This collection is a reflection of the perfect beauty found within the natural world.

by Massey Photography The art and the beauty of photography, and surely the aim of every photographer, is to perfectly capture and freeze a moment in time. This moment is very often fleeting and may not even be possible to experience with the naked eye. Bresson, one of the 20th Century greatest photographers, called this the "defining moment", a moment that is captured and composed beautifully and exposed perfectly. Weddings, by their very nature, have many "defining moments". I make it my aim at every wedding I shoot to capture these moments so that my bride and groom will have…
