East Midlands brides you are in for a treat! Former international fashion buyer, Julia, had a vision to create a luxury yet friendly space in Nottinghamshire for brides to enjoy discovering their individual bridal style in, and she’s absolutely succeeded. Today we’re thrilled to give you a peek inside this wonderful space, which we think is perfect for a relaxing day of dream dress hunting surrounded by your best girls.
Completely unique wedding stationery is becoming harder and harder to come by, and so we believe it is our duty to celebrate when we do find something, and share! Fig + Fern Studio create the most enchanting illustrations, and use all kinds of wonderful techniques to create completely unique paper goods. We think you’re going to fall head over heels, because story telling is confined to wedding photography you know, your wedding narrative begins the day the envelope lands on a doormat.
The result when a couple in love capture couples in love is always something special. Today we’re welcoming the wonderful Rachel and Christopher of September Pictures to The Love Lust List, and let me tell you, they are all kinds of Rock My Wedding cool. They both think each other is the better photographer, but they’ve actually both got it wrong… awkward. Thankfully, we’re here to tell you that they BOTH capture magic. Every shot is framed to perfection, they’ll get that all important mantlepiece shot which is going to end up in the hands of your great aunties as well as capturing that sneaky snog you thought no one saw AND they’re totally lovely to boot. I’ve already shotgunned them both as my future BFFs, sorry about that.
There’s something really special about creating your unique wedding day look with accessories and jewellery. The icing on the cake as it were. Reflecting your personality and bridal style might mean one bold, statement piece, or smaller delicate pieces to compliment your beautiful gown, but either way, the handcrafted luxury jewellery from Laura Rhodes is almost certainly going to fit the bill. If you’re not content with an item in the collection, Laura’s star in the crown (see what I did there), is her bespoke service to work with you to create something truly unique. Here comes the pretty…
You may have come here looking for a photographer, but you’re probably going to leave with a new friend.

I’m just going to throw it straight out there. If I was getting married again (same fella, don’t fret pet), Middleton Lodge would be the one. A true gem in the Yorkshire countryside, which just keeps getting better and better – I mean there are plans for a spa… hello! Middleton Lodge has evolved into the ultimate venue with enough options to accommodate your wedding day visualisations effortlessly, and enough style to give you all the heart eyes. For the foodie’s amongst us, the Kitchen Garden is the thing of dreams, and if your guests love a party then the Old Forge Barn is where it’s at. Excited? You should be.
There’s no time like a wedding for indulgence, luxury and pampering. Set within 163 acres of lush parkland with the spectacular River Maine flowing through the estate, Galgorm Resort has a truly unique setting, which when combined with the award winning spa and their approach to weddings and the magic behind them, makes Galgorm tick an awful lot of boxes, and pretty boxes at that. I’m fairly sure that there isn’t a bride reading this who wouldn’t love the serenity of the spa; I’m thinking the day before the wedding, you and your bridesmaids, something sparkly and all the relaxing. Am I wrong?…
