Maritime Wedding Inspirations On The Coast Of England


It is the love for her homeland and its multi-faceted coastal areas that inspired Emma Hla of Coco Wedding Venues to create these diverse maritime wedding inspirations on the coast of England.

„I’m very much drawn to the rugged coastlines that we’re so fortunate to have in the UK.“ she raves. „Whether it’s the tall swaying grass of the dunes in Sussex, the dramatic cliffs of Dorset or the stretches of sand in Northumberland – I love them all.“

Based on the incredible selection of potential locations, her decision must have been imaginably difficult. And yet, in the end, everything happened so easily, it seems. „So when I discovered Clovelly Village in Devon with it’s own pebble beach and stunning quay vista I knew this would be the perfect place for a sea-inspired shoot.“

And because Clovelly Village has much more to offer, she selected the most spectacular sceneries and beautiful backdrops along with shoot manager Katrina Otter Weddings. „This enchanting village has a timeless quality with its cliffs, gardens, pretty Manor House and cobbled streets.“

A sensual and changeable bride, an overwhelming selection of bridal gowns and the elaborate floral decoration of Wild Spirit finally completed every scene in perfection.

The team has been particularly successful in bringing the maritime details of the sea into the historical manor house and thus into the interior of the country. With the watercolor-like stationery of Calligraphy for Weddings, pearl shimmering shells, an by the underwater world inspired cake, artfully knotted baskets and a variety of blue tones, the lush green and flowering garden became a maritime eye catcher.

With photographer Lucy Davenport, the two creative heads Emma and Katrina got

then another artist into the team, who knew exactly how to catch the countless little details just as well as the great whole on camera. Follow us now to see the incredible result!

Glitter Inspired Bridal Shoot by Lucy Davenport Photography

Glitter Inspired Bridal Shoot by Lucy Davenport Photography



Her eyes are shining, her jewelry sparkles and her robes shimmer – as a complete artwork details unite within the twinkle of a bride.

Her styling mirrors extravagance, opulence and wealth from head to toe. Nothing on her shouts tradition, everything strives against the stream.

Her dress´s outlandishness finds its peak within the bride´s floral hair jewelry. Wildly appearing and lavishly created it touts for the observer´s attention with her gowns.

This shoot was inspired by glitter.“ photographer Lucy Davenport told us and added: „We wanted to mix an editorial look with a wearable wedding look and created varying results. We echo the wearable looks through make up and the addition of the new age floral headpieces.“

Florist Juliet Glaves designed breathtaking pieces of art and literally crowned the already stunning dresses by Amanda WakeleyHalfpenny London and Gibson Bespoke.

With photographer Lucy Davenport another talented artist joined the team at the set who captured these artful bridal inspirations skillfully.

Culinary Fireworks of Inspiration


Lush berry-tones and bright yellow unite with splendid jewelry and sparkling gold, to colorfully face the winter´s white glory. While purest white and tender rosé with ancient silver and subtle treasures give serenity to the spring´s vivid colors.

One location, two shootings, countless inspirations – we owe this fireworks of creative ideas to the unmistakable photographer Lucy Davenport and the peerless food artists Sharon and Eric Day of Indulgence Catering.

„The idea of this shoot came about from a collaboration between myself and Indulgence, a boutique catering company I work with often at weddings. We created a stunning, seasonal inspired shoot in the Orangery of Aynhoe Park.“ photographer Lucy Davenport told us.

With the florist of Sarah Harper Flowers on their side they created pompous and detailed wedding decorations for all four seasons of the year, as Lucy explained: „We had 2 styled tables – one for Spring/Summer and the other for Autumn/Winter. Autumn/Winter was about incorporating textures and mood with a depth of colors. In contrast, Spring/Summer was created using a feminine, delicate elegance with a pastel palette.“

Sharon and Eric Day of Indulgence Catering created eatable artworks to both themes that fit in seamlessly with the respective setting. This is how the team rounded out a overall image – captured by photographer Lucy Davenport – that invites to snack on, linger and most of all marry! Doesn´t it?

Love, Passion and Temperament at Conwell Manor

Love, Passion and Temperament at Conwell Manor


Love, Passion and Temperament


If love, passion and temperament are the ingredients for a fiery elopement, then fine art photographer Lucy Davenport serves us a real feast for the eyes of wedding inspirations.

It is about a couple who have to hide their feelings for each other under a veil of secrecy and savors the precious moments together. A secret marriage is supposed to free them from this invisible prison and pave the way for a future side by side.

Event designer Sundari Ferris told us: „He awaits her in the chapel as they promised to each other a few days before. The sun is slowly rising and the shadows of the surrounding trees flicker across the stonewalls. He closes his eyes and remembers the secret meetings, the hidden blissful moments, the hours talking and dancing. He remembers when he first saw her. He remembered her voice and how his heart leapt each time her striking green eyes connected with his. He loved her in an instant and gave her all of his soul without a question.

She slowly opens the door to the chapel, and takes her first steps into the dark space illuminated by just a few few pools of sunlight. She see’s him, turned toward the front and she sighs. He doesn’t move. She takes a few hesitant steps forward and is basked in sunlight, it’s warmth feels comforting. Then he finally turns toward her. 

His hand reached out towards her; holding her rosary beads that she had given to him months before. A sign of her devotion to him and her promise to be his forever…“

A delicate story that only a team of well-known wedding vendors was able to bring to life at Cornwell Manor with such enthusiasm. Vendors such as the experienced floral designers Verity & Thyme, who gave a mysterious sleeping beaut charm to the couple´s bedroom. Or dress designer Joanne Fleming, who provided the seductive red wedding dress. And of course event designer Sundari Ferris, without whom all the small and large details had never found each other to make this special love story come true…

And without whom we would ultimately have to forgo the expressive pictures by Lucy Davenport, with which the photographer now takes us into an unknown world.
