I founded this wedding blog over five and half years ago, FIVE AND A HALF YEARS! That’s a long time, thousands and thousands of featured couples have graced our pages since the beginning and we are constantly astounded by the diversity and creativity of our community.
As you can probably imagine, the styling element of your big day thrills us to the core, we love to see your use of colour, floral decor and fashion choices…but actually, the most important aspect of any affair is the joy. That pure unadulterated love that radiates from the real wedding images that we are sent on a daily basis. And that’s why we have collaborated with De Beers on their “A Moment To Last Forever” campaign, not only do we like their diamonds (A LOT!) but their ethos really resonates with us – it’s those captured moments of elation and flashes of delight that last a lifetime.
If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times, please please ensure you book the very best possible photographer within your budget. Apart from your engagement and wedding rings your photographs are the only real tangible memories you are left with long after you’ve said “I Do”.
I also want you to be able to spend some alone time with your soul partner as newly weds during the day, even if it’s just for ten minutes – soak up the atmosphere and enjoy each other. The day goes so quickly, make sure you endeavour to slow it down whenever you feasibly can.
I have a whole host of other planning tips over on the De Beers website, pop on over and have a peek when you get a moment, not least to admire all of the beautiful jewellery……
