Christmas 2012 has been and gone and we've stepped into 2013 and have now started de-Christmassing (read: de-cluttering). We're getting psyched for Valentine's Day and wedding season preps - now, is there anything more Valentines-y or wedding-y than love and hearts? Nope, not to me anyway.
Here's a sweet engagement shoot that celebrates love, hearts, and all things pretty, styled by Charley Beard of London Bride
and shot by Eddie Judd
. With so many creative inspirational and styled shoots on blogs and magazines it's refreshing to see a real couple, with real love, and real smiles, in a beautiful location, styled just so with minimal fuss.
Pretty pinwheels featured in the bouquet and décor, a little afternoon tea
set-up with vintage crockery, sparkling heart macarons
, springy blooms and lacey linen to match the dress, baby's breath in her hair, ribbons and tulle all come together in one of the most romantic picnic set-ups.
A floral belt!
Wispy floaty ribbons on chairs
Those dangly sparklies. I need.
I was so inspired by this shoot that I created the Lavender Fields macaron soon after. Natural lavender buds infused in rich cream and laced through smooth dark Belgian chocolate to add a deep and floral tone to the ganache. Love at first bite.
