Hey lovelies! Does anyone have snow yet? We’ve seen a sprinkling… I wonder if it’s settling prettily in Scotland right now?! Anyone? I’m excited to be sharing more winter weddings with you over these next few weeks, following on from Adam and Lauren‘s beautifully snowy day featured on Wednesday! Today it’s the turn of gorgeous couple Kayleigh and Alex, whose wedding was at the beautiful Waddesdon Dairy in Buckinghamshire on the 16th of December last year.
I am feeling FESTIVE today!! Christmas calligraphy orders are almost done (and we’ve had such a brilliant year with family tree orders and calligraphy workshop bookings – it’s ace!) – I have a new jumper to snuggle into and I’m generally getting in the mood for the party season. So when I spotted beautiful Lauren and Adam’s stunning Christmas wedding from Rachel Joyce in my inbox, it just felt PERFECT to share with you! There’s everything: mulled wine, Christmas trees, sparklers and even SNOW!!

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re staying safe and cosy in this blustery weather! Today’s wedding is the perfect distraction from the wind and rain – Mimi and Jacob married on the 5th of January and incorporated so many cool ideas into their totally gorgeous and unique DIY wedding. The boys are all rocking a tux and dickie bow (and loving the James Bond look!); Mimi is absolutely stunning in a beautiful lace dress and veil. The details though… and the care and creativity these guys put into making their wedding a true reflection of their personalities is amazing!
Winter is coming… and that phrase conjures up two things for me! The first is Game of Thrones – and me and my guy are rewatching every. single. episode. from the 1st season to the last… we started on Friday and I think we’ll be finished just in time for season 8 in May / June 2019! Winter also reminds me of snowy weddings, snuggly wraps and cosily beautiful wedding styling. So today I’m sharing a truly unique wedding from Lansdown Hall and Gallery in Stroud. Beautiful bride Jess and gorgeous groom Damian chose the venue because it’s very dear to their family, and organised everything themselves: decorations, lighting, DJ, the bar, outside catering, staff, setting up and clearing up. Take one look at their photos and you’ll see it was 100% worthwhile – it allowed them to plan and style their day exactly how they wanted. As well as the venue, highlights to watch out for are Jess’s E&W Couture dress, which is just perfect – and the bouquet of eucalyptus, white roses and pussy willow (my favourite!) by the wonderful Sweet Peony in Cardiff. The fabulous photos of Jess and Damian’s wedding are by UK photographer Jon Turtle, who’s based in Penarth, South Wales.
My top tip for you today, lovelies, is to find a place you love and get married there. It can be that simple… and you don’t have to go out of your way to find a place you love, if there’s already a place! You might have a favourite country pub, or a local beach with amazing views, or a city centre restaurant. Beautiful bride Laura & her gorgeous husband Rick found their perfect venue at the East Quay in Whitstable – with sea views and glorious natural decor inside (plus all the sparkly wonderfulness) it’s sooo perfect for a modern wedding!
