SOMERLEY HOUSE; CONTEMPORARY LUXURY WEDDING INSPIRATION

It is about this time of year, when the wedding season has calmed, that I start get my creative head back in the game and think about putting together a styled shoot. In the wedding world, a styled shoot gives us wedding professionals a chance to demonstrate exactly what it is we are about and what we love to do. As I’m sat here pondering the next one, I can’t help but think back to past shoots. Last year, along with a dream team of suppliers, I put together a shoot at Somerley House (on the Dorset/Hampshire borders). It’s been featured a few times now by wonderful blogs such as Coco Wedding Venues, The English Wedding Blog and BLoved (thank you all) and I thought it was about time to fe

Planning at Wedding At Home? What You Need to Know…

I often get asked for my favourite wedding venues.

Wedding Styling, Our Approach to Putting Together Your Wedding Style

For me, there are two biggies of putting together an amazing wedding: perfect planning and stunning design. Let’s face it, a wedding celebration is an event and any event planner knows the importance of the plan (“fail to plan, plan to fail”…) but it’s also a unique celebration of you both as a couple, it needs to look and feel like you. In fact the term “wedding planner” kind of feels like a misnomer – it misses out that crucial word “design” or “styling.” With every single couple I work with, putting together the design is a HUGE, and sometimes overlooked, part of the service – so I thought I’d write a post on exactly what it means and what the Weddings by Jenna Hewitt approach involves
