Young Love Cotswolds Inspiration Shoot

Last week we feasted our eyes on this insanely pretty shoot full of English charm from Planned For Perfection and CJK Visuals. We basically fell in love with all the gorgeous, and we couldn’t wait to share this darling sister shoot inspired by a beautiful, youthful love, drenched in innocence and adorable moments. I mean, what’s more romantic than a quaint picnic in the English countryside?! See it all here.

From CJK VisualsI met up with Jane during my second backpacking trip around Europe. I was beyond excited when she said she would work with me on an English-themed wedding styled shoot. Little did I know, she had planned a mini “young-love” picnic styled shoot as well!

The models, Molly and Ed, the daughter of the planner and son of the florist- had only met each other once or twice- and you would’ve thought they were each other’s first love! They were so adorable with each other and I had so much fun having them awkwardly hold each other’s hands for the first time. I don’t know about you, but I think these two should probably go on a real date after this shoot!

Jane put together an adorable English picnic “first date” shoot located on the grounds of the Bibury Court Hotel. Finger sandwiches, picnic basket, cupcakes, and Harry Potter- I can’t think of a better outdoor date in the Cotswolds!

From CJK VisualsAfter my first backpacking trip around Europe, I immediately fell in love and needed to get back. I’ve wanted to shoot international weddings since I first started doing photography, so that first trip over inspired me to reach out and make it happen. I started to email different planners about meeting up in April, when I stumbled upon Jane Riddell of Planned for Perfection based out of the Cotswolds in England. She was immediately excited and up to work on an amazing English-wedding styled shoot with me on my next trip over in August.

When she asked what sort of shoot I was interested in doing, I said anything ENGLISH! It’s so different and very specific- nothing like I’m used to shooting over on the East Coast in the states. Jane was 100% up for it and she really put together something special.

Fast forward a few months of emails back and forth, discussing minor details- and I am in England prepping for my first international styled shoot! I arrived after a flight, train, and taxi ride to the incredible Bibury Court Hotel, and my jaw was on the ground. I can’t begin to explain how perfectly English this venue is- it looks like a movie set! Jane and her team put together one of the most incredibly beautiful shoots I’ve ever seen. The florals, dresses, and real-life couples that modeled for us couldn’t have been more perfect. I am so looking forward to getting back over there and working with this amazing team of vendors again!

Charming English Countryside Wedding in Yorkshire

Since becoming a devoted Downton Abbey fan, English countryside weddings captivate me more than ever. It’s something about the pomp and circumstance, not to mention the timeless charm, and this summertime affair is no exception. Sandra Rose styled the florals, M And J Photography snapped the photos, and the results? Well, let’s just say it’d give Lady Mary Crawley’s wedding a run for its money.

From The Bride…When Ross and I first got engaged, the big question was “Where was the wedding going to be?” With us living in the US, but being from two different countries it was anyone’s guess where we would get married. I am originally from the northeast of England and moved over to the US over 5 years ago and Ross is Ohio born and bred, so it made picking the perfect location for our wedding a little tricky.

Without any intention yet to marry in the UK, we stumbled upon Middleton Lodge online before we had really even thought about wedding planning. We were blown away by the images of the venue and thought the place looked amazing. After a quick phone call to my parents back home, they were on their way to check it out. We knew Middleton Lodge was the perfect place to say our “I do’s” so we made the decision to book the venue without even seeing it for ourselves. It was a decision we do not regret. The venue itself is breathtaking, with its quintessential British charm that has been meticulously maintained by its owners and staff. It is beautiful!

From the start, planning the wedding was easy. From finding my dress here in Ohio, to picking out the flowers and giant illuminated letters to all the other little details. We had a clear vision that we wanted the wedding to feel laid back yet elegant and romantic. It is crazy to think that we did it all from the other side of the world…but walking into the marquee for our reception and seeing all the little details come together to create a beautiful setting for our big day was amazing. I wish I could have paused that moment.

The day was fabulous. The great British weather held out and we had glorious sunshine all day, our guests from the US loved experiencing some real English countryside (and other parts of Europe for those who decided to make the most of their trip and turn it into a vacation). We heard nothing but great things from all of our guests, everyone had so much fun and everything was just perfect and created such a memorable day for everyone – but especially us.

Middleton Lodge was the ideal setting to be married in grand style but with an intimate atmosphere.
