Wedding dress shopping is fun, and an exciting journey for most brides. But if you are a bride who is looking for something a little less than traditional, it can be hard to find exactly what you're looking for. In the sea of ivory dresses it can be easy to loose sight of you, your style and your personality. Remember you're not just "a bride", you're still you! Today I want to talk alternative options. If ivory and lace isn't working for you, consider these ideas instead.Read More
Orangeries and Conservatories are one of my favourite types of venue. Similar to a marquee in that they are usually a completely blank canvas, they are bright, light and airy, and effortlessly create the feeling that you and your guests are sitting outside when in reality you're still sheltered from the weather, the best of both worlds! Today I wanted to showcase some of my favourite Orangeries and Conservatories from all over the UK.Read More

Wedding cakes are a big part of any wedding reception, and whether you are planning to have 7 tiers or just 1 tier, there are lots of ways to make an impression with the design of your wedding cake. My favourite cakes are designs that are original, colourful and floral. So today I thought I would share some of the beautiful cakes I have seen recently, some from photoshoots and weddings I have worked on and a few from cake designers I admire and follow on social media.

This weeks post is a bit of a more personal post, but completely wedding related, naturally! As some of you may know already, particularly if you follow me on Instagram, in January I myself got engaged! It was our 10 year anniversary (about time eh?) and we had planned a lovely get away in the centre of London, and it turned out to be one of the happiest days of my life.
I immediately had so many ideas for our wedding, and having worked in the wedding industry for over 5 years now I think people may have expected us to have the wedding all organised in a month. But 5 months on we actually haven't booked a thing, mostly because we're too busy working! Ironic that I'm so busy working in weddings I don't have time to plan my own! :D
I do have ideas though, venues I want us to visit, dress shops to go to, and lots of styling ideas. We know we don't want a big wedding, just relaxed and personal to us. I think the toughest challenge may be narrowing down all the different ideas I have into something cohesive and achievable, after all, just like everyone else we are on a budget!
I have a few quiet weeks coming up towards the end of July so am hoping we may be able to get started with venue visiting. I'm going to share bits of our wedding planning journey here, so keep an eye out over the next few months to see how a wedding stylist handles her own wedding!
