I am LOVING the craze for hoop décor that’s setting weddings alight at the moment. IMHO you can’t get a more beautiful, classic, and timeless shape than a hoop: they fit seamlessly into all types of venues and settings, and are a simple way of adding impact and interest. And if you’re canny about it, they’re affordable! All the bits I needed to create this hula hoop table plan came to a grand total of just over £30, so if you’re planning a wedding on a budget it’s a great way to save a couple of quid.
If you’re planning on using confetti at your wedding then a gorgeous touch (and lovely talking point) is to create a confetti station from which guests can help themselves to their own cones of confetti. It’s a super easy, fun and affordable DIY that only takes a couple of hours. Get your bridesmaids involved and you’ll have whipped one up quicker than you can say Confetti Cone Station…
Hoops are having a BIG moment in the world of weddings. They’re romantic, practical, beautiful and symbolic. And the hoop bouquet is one of my favourite ways to incorporate hoops into a wedding. Ultra-versatile, bridal hoop bouquets will look just as perfect at laid-back, boho nuptials as they will at a classic and elegant wedding. They make a beautiful alternative to the traditional bouquet and can double up as décor after the ceremony.
Wedding hoop bouquets can be bought for anything up to £60 online, but today I’m going to show you how to save yourself approximately £45 by creating your own DIY hoop bouquet for just £15.
At your wedding, squillions of photos will be taken. SQUILLIONS. And what could make for a prettier backdrop to alllll the pictures than a floral heart wreath installation? And best of all, it can be done for under £50…

Displaying family wedding photos at your own nuptials is a wonderful way of including your parents, grandparents and siblings in your big day. You can display on any backdrop in your venue that’s suitable. We chose to use a gorgeous apple tree to make the perfect setting for a family tree, but you could easily hang this from an archway or beams, depending on the venue.
This quirky Scottish wedding literally screams our ethos Your Day Your Way and we absolutely LOVE it.
With the gorgeous couple turning their home into their reception venue and having the ultimate house party. Decorating it with more than a few amusing DIY signs, a gin bar and leading guests from the pub lunch wedding breakfast to their party central with a fabulous brass band procession through the city streets.
Sophie & Colin look so relaxed and at ease with their guests and each other, and are literally having the time of their lives. This is one epic party I would have loved to have been at. Rock My Wedding faves Tub of Jelly have captured every essence of this couples personality not to mention all the delicious decor. You just HAVE TO check out the video below too, it’ll put you in a good move for weeks.
Adding to the uniqueness of this intimate wedding is Sophie’s gorgeous Zimmerman gown. She looks like an absolute siren with it fitting in all the right places. You would not believe it only cost a mere £100! And not to be forgotten groom Colin who also sports a dashing red Slaters waistcoat that POPS under his Harris Tweed jacket fabulously.
Shall we take a look? Guaranteed you’ll be beaming from ear to ear, and giggling at all their signage.
Bath is such a beautiful place I can totally understand why this gorgeous couple would wanted to marry there. Not just in any location, at the fabulous Assembly Rooms and Roman Baths too. Photographer Steph Newton literally must have thought all her Christmas’s had come at once, capturing the love amongst such historic and beautiful surroundings, and oh my are the pictures dreamy.
A lot of thought and detail went into this contemporary wedding. None more so than the fashion. With the Groomsmen donning sharp navy blue suits and the Bridesmaids in fabulous coral frocks from the high street, But last and no means least Bride Laura who wore a sumptuous Charlie Brear gown adding a touch of glamour to the day. I’d also very much like to steal her earrings and shoes. SO pretty.
From the pastel painted walls of the Assembly Rooms to the aged brick of the nearby buildings and the chalky colours of the raw stone around the roman Baths, every photo is engulfed in colour, history & love. What a day!
There is SO much fabulous DIY decor at this gorgeous same sex wedding at Greenwich Yacht Club in London. I especially adore the gin bottle table plan, centrepieces and signs full of fun gin-ism’s. I also absolutely adore the bunting ceiling canopy and boat origami backdrop, which have made all the ceremony pictures extra adorable.
Talking of adorable these beautiful brides brought along their pooch AJ to join in their nuptials and what a great addition he makes to the celebration. Continuing with not conforming to tradition, they also chose to cut shapes on the dance floor and share handmade mini gingerbreads & battenburgs with their guests rather than cut a cake and have a first dance. And why not in deed.
Both ladies look absolutely stunning in their wedding dresses. So sit back and enjoy double the bridal fashion and brace yourself for an epic pic of them in the rain captured by the oh so talented Anna Pumer Photography.
