This afternoon on the blog we have a gorgeous autumn wedding styled shoot full of rich tones and truly beautiful styling.
Organised by wedding planner Kristin, who makes up one half of Mr & Mrs W, the shoot was a collaboration of top suppliers from Knutsford to show off the talent that can be found within the North West town.
To give more details on the vision of the shoot and the wedding enthusiasts that were behind it, we’ll hand you over to the lovely Kristin.

kristin says:: The inspiration behind this shoot was to bring together all the wedding suppliers from the town of Knutsford into the absolutely stunning autumnal setting of Tatton Park.
Here in Knutsford you can get everything you need for a stunning wedding day, so we wanted to bring it all together at this spectacular venue to show all the brides-to-be out there, just how special Knutsford is.
When it came to picking a photographer for the shoot, there was nobody else I would ask other than Mark, who is the other half to me and our business. With his fashion and commercial background and his natural wedding photography style, he was perfect for what I wanted to achieve.

felicity says: The Anna Campbell trunk show will be held from Friday 18th December 2015 to Sunday 3rd January 2016, to celebrate the release of the Anna Campbell Gossamer collection!
There will be more than 40 combinations of Anna Campbell dresses available to try on from the Gossamer, Spirit and Forever Entwined collections, exclusively at Jean Jackson Couture NQ. Better still, there will be 10% off all Anna Campbell orders, as well as goody bags and festive treats!
This will be the first Gossamer collection trunk show in the whole of Europe and so we are absolutely thrilled to be hosting it! Until now the Gossamer collection was a made-to-measure service and has only been available in Melbourne. However, due to the demand for the collection, Anna made the Gossamer range made-to-order, and it will still feature her iconic dresses, such as Ashlyn, Tash and Carolina.
The Gossamer collection is inspired by French romance, with its intricate detailing and delicate hand-craftsmanship it epitomises grace and glamour. There really is a dress for every bride within Anna’s collections, with a range of customisable options, including unique colours and an assortment of skirts in varying fabrics and fit! All Anna’s dresses are lined in silk too, so they look and feel amazing to wear!
I recently saw the collection when I was in New York for bridal week and it blew me away! Ashlyn is such a special dress and Annabella is another favourite of mine.
The Anna Campbell gowns are available from a XXS – XXL, which is the UK equivalent of a size 4 to a size 18. In the studio, we have samples from a size 6 to 14. There are certain styles of Anna’s dresses that are unavailable above a size 14, however the majority of them are available in her full size range.
The Anna Campbell dresses range in price, dependant on the amount of beading and skirt choice. The UK RRP for the range is from £1,659 to £4,499, which includes shipping costs from Australia, import duty and VAT. We also offer alteration packages from £100.
Ordinarily we are closed on Sundays, however during the trunk show we will be open on Sunday the 20th and 27th December 2015, and the 3rd January 2016, we will also be open on Monday 28th December 2015.
The trunk show will be appointment only, and all appointments will last up to an hour and a half. To book an appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07436 535 587. There is no charge for appointments.
Can’t wait to see you all there!

Today’s wedding starts with a simple yet super sweet proposal that gave the bride and groom the theme for their wedding day.
Hannah and Fred then added rustic wedding touches in their décor and styling choices with the help of their wedding planner, in order to create the desired look for their romantic country celebration.
We particularly love the Hannah’s wedding gown with a cute off-the-shoulder lace jacket and also her bridesmaids’ pretty choices of dresses, which fitted the “short and champagne” brief perfectly!

Hannah says: We got engaged at our first home together on the 1st August 2014. It was ‘date night’ and Fred was cooking dinner for us at home. He was cooking his speciality, pie! When he carried it out to the table it was covered, he then got down on one knee and asked if I would do him the honour of cutting the pie! Slightly confused, I took the cover off the pie where ‘Marry Me!’ in pastry was revealed.
We set the date for 26th September 2015. We wanted to get married in Cumbria and September is always a beautiful month in that part of the UK! We also needed to give our Australian family and friends enough notice to plan their trip.
Our ceremony was at Wetheral Church in Cumbria. Wetheral is where Fred grew up and his two sisters also got married at this church too. We then had our reception at Monkhouse Hill Cottages where we had tipis from Special Event Tipis.

You might want to grab your woolly hat and rain coat for this afternoon’s post, as we’re heading outdoors to the Peak District for Caylie and James’s engagement shoot.
Braving the brisk Derbyshire weather, their photographer Steven Haddock, captured some fabulously emotive and moody looking shots against a somewhat stormy backdrop.

caylie says: Our engagement was an utter surprise. James always said I would never see it coming – and he was right! All the usual suspects; trips abroad, romantic strolls, picturesque viewpoints all came and went. Seven years later we took a break to London, to escape parental roles for a few days and loose ourselves in lazy brunches and late night gin bars! The Saturday afternoon James was determined to get me to Hyde Park, Boris bikes were planned, Pret sarnies packed, and then the heavens opened. It didn’t a stop raining all afternoon. After a thorough soaking I finally threw a strop and demanded to go back to the hotel. The ring had been in his pocket all day, I stepped out of the shower, soap in my eyes, half-dressed to find him on one knee. It wasn’t a Hyde Park picnic, but I never saw it coming.

To get your week off to a pretty start, we’re sharing with you Elizabeth and Rory’s elegant wedding day that took place in Yorkshire.
Deciding to stick with tradition for their ceremony, Elizabeth and Rory picked the church connected to their son’s school in which to say their ‘I dos’. Once wed the bride, groom and their guests then all enjoyed a marquee reception in a rural location which boasted beautiful countryside views.

elizabeth says: We got engaged in October 2014. We’d been over visiting Rory’s friend in Cheshire for the weekend and we went out to Peckforton Castle. We were in the great hall when Rory said ‘look at that over there’ and pointed at some coats of arms on the wall. When I turned back around he was on one knee! Our little boy who was five at the time got down on one knee with him too, totally unrehearsed and unprompted. Rory proposed with his mum’s engagement ring. Sadly she’d lost a two year battle with cancer a month earlier so it was pretty emotional.
We were married on 26th September 2015, at Hoylandswaine Church and then had our reception in a marquee supplied by Black Cherry Events, at Smallshaw Farm Cottages in Millhouse Green, near Sheffield. I always wanted to get married in a church and we chose Hoylandswaine as it’s the church connected to our son’s school. It meant a lot as it’s where we go for his harvest festival, carol concert etc. It’s not our parish church but I went to services regularly to ensure we were eligible.
