This wedding is SEXY with a capital S. And if you’re going to have W-day on New Years Eve then you may as well have one massive music-filled party….which is exactly what Carly and Jay decided to do.
I am a huge fan of Carly’s decision to go full-on Hollywood glam for such a special occasion, she looks so glossy…..so super polished and completely HOT.
I love all the quotes used as signage around the venue, the bespoke sweet bar and the cute “All My Love” ribbon that decorated the bottle centre pieces….and the alternative “top table” idea. But what I loved most of all? all of the dancing underneath the mirror ball. I would VERY much like to attend an affair as fun as this one if anyone is considering having a similar do anytime soon.
There has only ever been ONE venue for us and that was at My Family Home in Shropshire, I have had the joy of living here for all my 28 years. We are lucky enough to back onto a large field and the open space was perfect to hold the six tipi’s we needed to house our “PARTY” on New Year’s Eve.
The field didn’t come without challenges and we certainly had ‘fun’ accessing the field through the single access gate, the weather leading up to the big day added an extra challenge all of its own, a mud bath would describe it well. A special mention to our local farmer and tractor driver extraordinare without whom none of the tipi’s, catering truck or air-stream stage would have made it onto the field – and as for the bar stock and set up, a route through the house had to do for them!… View the full post.
Oh the flowers, the pretty flowers. And the pretty dress… and the stamp bunting and the dougnut cake.
It’s all just so lovely and a little bit of this and that, which was exactly Lynda and Eddies dream day. All the bits of things they love, so they didn’t set themselves a theme. They wanted to throw a great party and during the planning process, it seemed they always went back to one thing… London. And that, without really planning on it, became their theme.
No Waiting Around
Lynda The Bride: We got engaged on my birthday back in November 2011 and after waiting 8 years for a proposal I didn’t think there was much point in waiting too long for the wedding! Thankfully Eddie agreed. He got the calendar, we looked at it for about 5 minutes and we came up with May 2012 – just over 6 months away which seemed quite far away at the time. Little did we realise that a lot of people seem to plan for a lot further in advance. Not to mention that the wedding industry in general seems to be geared for a lot of forward planning.
The process in general was fairly simple – there were no wedding folders or mood boards here! Within 2 weeks we had the venue, the registrar and the reception venue all booked so we were pretty decisive on the big details.
Quite a lot of things (not just small things!) were left to the last minute.… View the full post.

A very generous Katy from What Katy Did Next, an accessories label that creates all sorts of bridal fancy, is giving away one of her shimmering feather necklaces today…and that’s TODAY only folks.
That’s right you lovely jewellery loving lot you, you have just up until lunchtime tomorrow to drop us a note in the comment section on what outfit you would wear this piece of pretty with to be in with a chance of receiving this statement candy in time for your New Years Eve celebrations.
Katy: Hello! I’m Katy Howieson designer behind What Katy Did Next, a small accessories label based up North which specialises in handmade and bespoke bridal headwear. My business started just before i graduated from my Textiles & Surface Design course in 2011 – my hair had been trimmed into a pixie crop and i got inventive looking for ways to pretty it up! I’m hugely inspired by all things bridal, glittering, delicate, hand rendered prettiness and love just about any era of ‘Vintage’.
I’ve always had a passion for feathers – not necessarily full on feather boas but the shape, colours and floatiness. I originally created feather silhouettes in soft leather for a headpiece and after a bit of playing about fashioned them into a necklace for myself. As a party season treat i’ve gone full on glitter ball with my feathers and created a very spangly collar design to dress up any outfit over the festive season (and even longer!)
I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that there are an abundance of wedding traditions that you an choose to incorporate in your own big day or not.
The receiving line, the first dance, the cutting of the cake….choose to have ‘em all, a few that you feel are important to you and yours or maybe even none at all.
Now then. My favourite “tradition” is, without a shadow of a doubt, the throwing of the confetti.
For me it is the most significant aspect of the I do celebrations where friends and family congratulate the bride and groom on their together foreverness…a shower of love, luck and eternal happiness.
And from a purely aesthetic perspective, I think it’s difficult to improve on the vision of a pair of beaming newly-weds surrounded by a cloud of pretty pastel paper or flower petals…I always look out for that “shot” when I receive a real wedding submission.
Lolly and I were actually discussing confetti whilst at the NWS in Earls Court last week. Turns out it’s one of the traditions she will be keeping for her W-day this Autumn, and she is a big advocate of the familiar horse shoe and bell shaped silvery variety that it would seem is quite difficult to find in biodegradable material (if you have any ideas where we can find some then do let us know – Lolly will love you forever.)
And no we don’t think the train of your elegant gown shimmering in the sunshine with a selection of metallic shapes is tacky – it’s positively retro cool.… View the full post.
You know when a wedding is all clean and white washed and ever-so cool?

Well. For starters there’s the big “reveal” i.e. RMW’s next big project.
It’s been a long time coming lovelies.
Big Rock My …. Love
