Becky is at her happiest when dunking a slightly chilled chocolate digestive into a very warm, very milky cup of tea. She also loves her job and pinches herself every day to make sure that she isn’t in a graphic design dreamworld.

Ah Bordeaux. What a beautiful place for a beautiful wedding.
Jacqui & Simon’s day is so relaxed, so pretty and so them. Jacqui’s Tatyana Merenyuk’s gown is divine. The decor is perfection. I love the simplicity of the candle sticks and the flowers in planters on the tables. The flowers, btw, are immense in their own right.
There’s music and a menu to die for and I love the favours! And the napkin with the menu details printed on is just genius. Introducing the very smiley, very happy, Jacqui and Simon…
Well hello amazing wedding! Lisa and Jon married in a beautiful church and held their wedding breakfast and reception at Wise Wedding Venue. Picture sofa swings, a tree house and a massive amount of love and smiles.
Lisa and Jon enlisted the help of Sama from Utterly Wow to help design and coordinate their day. This is a great idea if you have a blank canvas and a lot of ideas and need a bit of help to rein your ideas in to create something cohesive and beautiful. I love the table decor, really fun and creative. You’re going to smile a lot when you look at these photos, shot by the fabulous Laura McCluskey.
Good afternoon lovely people! I’m taking you back to the Dordogne this afternoon. It’s been a little while since we went to France so I thought I’d treat you. And what a treat Sophie and Richard’s day is. It is simplicity done perfectly. If you don’t want anything fussy on your day you can’t go wrong with following their white on white, minimal style.
Sophie and Richard were very relaxed in the planning of their day, with a little bit of help from Marry Me In France, and I think that vibe has carried through right to the end of the day. From no jackets for the groomsmen to letting her maids pick their own dresses and having a last minute hair accessory emergency that got sorted in such a calm fashion they are the picture of wedding serenity. Sophie has some really great words of wisdom for any of you looking to get married abroad and also so fab french supplier recommendations.
Michelle and Charlie married at the spectacular Maunsel House. Michelle wore Claire Pettibone and looks stunning with the perfect bouquet. It was a real friends and family affair with Michelle’s hair and make-up done by a friend and Charlie’s suit made by that friends husband! Everyone looked like they had so much and wait until you see the epic cake. Also, every bride should do the ‘bride in the bath’ shot. Hot!
There is nothing not to love about Kat & Alan’s wedding. They married in the alpine mountains with a million little touches to really make their day their own. Kat’s Jenny Packham gown in perfect. Their humanist ceremony was conducted by their best friend and Kat’s family sang an Irish blessing (seriously, how cool is that?!). Their son was dressed in traditional Austrian dress and there were Kattoos and guests had to buy drinks with memories (FYI, it is such a fun idea!). Over to Kat to tell you more.
Oh hello wonderful Gatsby inspired wedding! I think this is such a great theme for a wedding. It can be hard in the early stages of planning a wedding and I think couples feel there is an absolute need to have a theme. But really, there isn’t at all. You should just do whatever suits you. It so happens that Carol & Mark wanted glitz and glam and so the 20’s era seemed the perfect match for what they love anyway.
I love the favours; sparklers with a little note to tell guests when they would be lit. What a lovely little touch and I would totally be stealing that idea if I was planning my wedding again. Carol has some great DIY tips for you as well.
Ellingham Hall made the perfect venue to host their friends and family for the weekend. I can just picture Carol swishing around in her amazing Jenny Packham gown followed by the most stylish and sophisticated maids I’ve ever seen and all the guests adhering to their black tie dress code. Lush. So sit back, grab some champers, stick a feather in your hair and swoon away.
Welcome to the wedding of Nandita and Brice who met via a common friend in San Fransisco. Brice moved to be with Nandita in New York a few months later. They got engaged after 5 years and then ta-dah! This epic wedding happened in Kerala, India, Nandita’s birthplace. The colours are to die for and it looks like it was a hell of a lot of fun!
To quote form one of their readings “Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves. ” Need I say anymore?
I sometimes wish I’d been brave enough to hold my wedding abroad. Maybe brave is a strange word to use. But I always thought that I’d not be able to have it as pretty as I’d want it and that I’d be restricted to the venues planner and be stuck with only a small selection of flowers or just not enough details. And I like the details.
But now I have seen this. And Oh. My. Goodness. It is perfection.
Sarah and Phillip married in one of my favourite places… Ibiza, at Atzaro. The stationery by stationery goddess Abigail Warner is so fitting for the setting. And the flowers?! Are they kidding me with the gorgeousness? Sarah wore Rime Arodaky, a designer that featured in one of my weddings last week too and who is becoming one of my favourite designers. And the bridesmaid dresses?! Made by one of the bridesmaids no less, are perfect Spanish chic. You are going to love this.
