Timeless wedding style is worth its weight in diamonds. Creating a wedding day look which is timeless means you can look back on your day in 2 years, in 10 years and in 50 years – and you will still love everything about it. Your dress and suit will be elegant, flattering and simple. Your flowers will be breathtaking. You’ll dream of revisiting that amazing venue – and your wedding album will become a beautiful heirloom for generations to admire.

Weddings do the oddest things to time. How often have you heard couples say “it all goes so fast” – and yet it takes aaaages to do everyone’s hair and make up and then lace up the back of a wedding dress! If you do one thing this week, take a little time to consider your wedding day timings. Start planning an itinerary – and chat with your hairdresser, your photographer and your caterers to make sure your day will run as smoothly as can be.

Hi lovely! Is it just me or is January flying by?! I’ve had a rush of enquiries for calligraphy, and have a bunch of amazing weddings up my sleeve… and still trying to be good and make it outside for a walk on my beach every lunchtime! (While quietly munching my way through the 48 delicious Caramacs my lovely friend Jamie sent me!)…

I have to confess I have a bit of a ‘thing’ about vintage – or what high street stores are calling vintage these days. Here’s the thing: you can’t buy anything vintage in Bhs, or in M&S, or Debenhams. Vintage comes from thrift stores, antique shops, charity shops and car boot sales… and so styling your wedding takes a little more care if you’re looking for “true vintage” appeal.

1. If you haven’t done it on the day, or you’ve forgotten something, it probably wasn’t that important and so don’t spend your day worrying about it. Make sure you benefit from all of your hard work!

~ Katherine & Ben

2. Be philosophical about the details, as much as every detail may have seemed important in the planning, in the grand scheme of the day you will get caught up in the moment and things will inevitably be overlooked. If there are details that really matter to you both, entrust them to someone else, don’t try to do them yourself on the day.
