A Boathouse Romance Wedding Shoot with a bright colourful Spring palette

Today I am excited to share this incredible Boathouse Romance Wedding Shoot with a bright colourful spring palette. Our Bride and Groom are a little ” more birthdayed” but I feel that love has no limit and its really important that the wedding media and society see that. The print and online media seem to obsess that beauty is found only in the young BUT something amazing rises up when there is true life in your years. Ageing well means loving yourself, accepting body changes, and seeing this right of passage as a gift that so many don’t get. Therefore finding love first or second time around at ANY age...

Tackling Ageism in the Wedding Industry

Ageism in the Wedding Industry is a huge issue that needs addressed as age discrimination is toxic… No-one wants to feel belittled, ignored or invisible because of a number, especially as a Bride. We talk so much about inclusivity in the Wedding Industry, and that is so incredibly important with everyones rights being respected whatever gender, race, religion, sexuality, ability they are. What there is little talk of is about the more mature of us getting wed, and how the experience of the older Bride is inherently flawed. There is no upper age limit to be a bride, and every bride wants the same enthusiasm from suppliers. To feel insulted,...
