Today we’re going to show you how to put together a DIY Cathedral Veil with two tiers and plenty of ‘pouff’ for less than £15. Although wrangling all that fabric may seem like this could be a complicated tutorial, you’ll soon see that this is incredibly easy, inexpensive and straightforward.
Move over marquee there is a new bad boy in town. Katie and Rich had a stretch tent in Katie’s parents’ back garden and I think it looks stunning! They put some work in to that garden and it is amaing. They created some sort of mini garden in the middle of the tent and it is just, well, see for yourself… The perfect place for a table for two. And I looooove the centrepieces. So original and… different.
“…fill a venue with pretty things that you love you will have a beautiful wedding.” I think Katie has hit the nail on the head. And boy did she do just that. She also has some very sound advice for those of you who are having to source a lot of your own suppliers. And it was all sumptuously captured by the talented Kirsten Mavric. Oh, and there’s a very cute dog involved.
If you are signed up to our newsletter you will of seen a sneak peak of Miriam and Juan’s wedding already.
My word it’s a beauty. A blue and yellow beauty. Set in an estate in the middle of a forest with gorgeous weather allowing for them to have the entire day outside, ceremony, food, everything.
Miriam is absolutely gorgeous and her tea length dress is so much fun. And the succulent favours… love. I think you’re going to like this. Very much.
Oh beautiful sunny wedding how I love thee. Jenni looks incred in her gorgeous Essence of Australia lace gown. I love it.
Both Jenni and Ben wanted to create a day that would reflect them. They fell in love in sixth form (aawwwww) and they got engaged on their 10 year anniversary. They wanted the day to be relaxed and fun and party filled. Jenni created all of the centrepieces herself (ace bride alert!) and baked her wedding cake with her Mum. Does it get more wonderful than that? Also, the ring shot in the field? Epic. Enjoy peeps.
Oh. My. word. This wedding is beautiful. It is classy. It is elegant. It is so super sleek. We’re talking the most beautiful of pastel shades for bridesmaid dresses, the most glorious backless Jenny Packham gown, stunning stationery and festoon lights. They are my very favourite kind of lights.
Photographer Lelia Scarfiotti has captured the mood perfectly with her romantic and dreamy shots. Prepare to swoon.
Believe in your dreams, always.
Poignant words from this afternoon’s bride Lesley. She envisaged her day and went for it, with only 5 months to plan! Lesley and Simon had a colour riot. It was SO much fun. Nothing too formal, just fun. There was a BBQ, a partially fake cake (such a clever idea!), ribbons on the chairs (love!) and a serious amount of fun and laughter, and the flowers. So gorgeous.
I love that the day reflected them so well. The stationery is so bright and so fun. I think couples can sometimes be easily put off by the opinions of others who may have a traditional view of what a wedding should be and it makes me so happy when couples are so headstrong and they just go for what is really in their hearts… and their super creative heads! Oh, and mini buttons as confetti on the tables?! Seriously. So clever. Big colour love to these guys. Enjoy.
Karen and Steve married in the Dordonge at the Fairytale Chateau and what a fairytale it was. There are so many beautiful vintage inspired details in this gorgeous day. I love the table decor. So much thought and consideration has gone into making the prettiest centrepieces. And the menu idea is just the best!
With her Allure Bridals gown Karen is stunning.
I think that every wedding should have hand fans. Who knew they had their own secret language? Such a great idea and lots of fun! So, steal away people and enjoy as you get whisked off to beautiful France.
Did I say ‘wow’ yesterday about my wedding? I think I did. And I’m going to say it today about this one too.
Tamsin shows how you can rock high street bridal like an absolute goddess. Her Phase Eight gown combined with that amazing flower crown (which FYI, the girls made themselves!) is the perfect combination for her and Steven’s village hall wedding.
With huge amounts of DIY this is a stunner. Tamsin also makes a good point; the DIY is a lot of fun, even though at times it is hard work, but more than anything it is important that you relish in your day. And these guys did just that. It was all sumptuously captured by the ever talented Millie Benbow. Love.
Wow, wow and wow. Sara looks so hot in her Sottero and Midgley gown. That lace. Also, her hair might just be the most perfect half up half down bridal do ever.
She married her beau in the beautiful Tuscan countryside with 40 of their closest friends and family. Pratello Country Resort had never hosted a wedding before. This was their very first. And what an incredible job they did too. Julia & You transports you there with her beautiful photography and Sara has some great words of wisdom for all you brides planning on marrying abroad.
