About Becky

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.

Karen & Steve

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.

Tamsin & Steven

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.

Sara & Ross

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.

Mags & Bryan

We love a bride with a budget and lots of very helpful tips on how to stick to your budget. We know most of you have restrictions when it comes to how much you can spend and it’s great to read Mags’s story on how they compromised on certain areas to make sure they stayed within their set budget.

Mags is stunning with her shocking red hair (and super nails to match!), her Romona Keveza gown is epic and has an epic veil to boot. There’s lots of high street and lots of handmade and it has all been perfectly captured for your viewing pleasure by Mirrorbox Photogrpahy.

Jacqui & Simon

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…

Lisa & Jon

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.

Sophie & Richard

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 & Charlie

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!

Kat & Alan

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.
