Wedding Day Drinks with Cin Cin.

cincinfeature

This afternoon we’re handing the blog over to awesome Love Lust List members Cin Cin. If you haven’t come across Cin Cin before, they are based in the South East and offer a mobile Italian catering service to weddings and events, serving bubbles & nibbles from their super cute vintage Fiat van.

Being connoisseurs of good food and wine, we’ve asked them to create an awesome guide to selecting and ordering drinks for your big day – as well as advice on taste combinations and different options for every budget. Cin Cin have also included some really useful information on how to order alcohol in bulk for your wedding day.

If your choice of wedding venue means that you are in charge of ordering drinks for your big day, you really will find this guide useful and if there is anything else you’d like to ask please leave us a comment.

Cin Cin are also hosting their first ever supper club in Brighton this Thursday 11th September. The Autumn Feast menu will feature signature Cin Cin antipasti and Prosecco, followed by a three course Italian feast prepared by top chef Jamie Halsall.

My mouth is watering after reading the menu…honey glazed figs with goat’s cheese & late summer truffle…heirloom tomatoes & burrata served with fresh basil and sherry vinaigrette…roasted damsons with zabaglione and crushed amoretti biscuits…YUM.

For more details and to purchase tickets, see here and for their guide to matching wines & cocktails to food & canapés read on…

A symbol of your union and your commitment to each other – but also very pretty and sparkly. Diamonds are a girls best friend after all.

The thing is that when it comes to investing in jewellery as special as your wedding and engagement rings, most of us don’t have the first clue where to start.

Different densities of metal, precious stones, carats, cuts…I didn’t even know that you should match the metal of your engagement ring to your wedding ring if you want to wear them together!!

Untitled-1

Mr & Mrs Smith began as a boutique hotel guidebook publisher in 2003 and is now an online booking service with an eye for hip honeymoons and a curated collection of more than 900 romantic hotels around the world. I found my most favourite hotel in the whole of the universe via Mr & Mrs Smith, Chateau Les Merles in the Dordogne and have always found their service and communication better than anyone else I have ever used in terms of booking getaway accommodation.

Susannah will be on-line this morning and over lunchtime to answer any questions you may have regarding planning your trip of a lifetime, and that’s any questions folks, so make the most of the opportunity and get asking the expert!

Ask The Experts – Abigail Warner.

Abigail Warner Stationery

If you read our vlogging post earlier this week then you’ll already know that I’m an interior infatuated, art loving, frustrated florist. You’ll also be aware that I’m obsessed with all things paper. Be it a gorgeous print, exquisite handwritten type or the sweetest suite of personalised stationery you can guarantee that I’ll be hooked or it will be pinned to within an inch of its life on my Pinterest boards. (Incidentally you can follow me here if you’re interested in seeing what’s caught my eye this week.)

Ever since I first entered the wedding world (some time ago now folks) I’ve adored, lusted after and admired in equal parts the work of Abigail Warner.

To say she’s a perfect paper genius would be an understatement.

Abbey is the woman (actual guru!) behind the luxury paper goods company Abigail Warner creating beautiful designs for weddings, businesses and paper obssessed folk such as myself.

From designing and selling greetings cards in illustrious boutiques such as Selfridges and Paperchase the world over, to her latest venture – an interiors project with fashion and textile designer, Pearl Lowe – Abbey continues to push the boundaries of the stationery world.

And so today lovelies, we have a real treat for you; we’ve managed to persuade the lovely Abbey to down tools for a few wee hours to answer all of your stationery conundrums and perhaps suggest some solutions to your paper related woes.

Perhaps you’re having difficulty with a certain turn of phrase within your invites or you need some guidance about how to start the process of commissioning a bespoke stationery suite.… View the full post.
