A LOT goes on at weddings. They’re magical, romantic… and the busiest days of our lives! With everyone we know all in one place, a schedule to be kept and plans to be followed, it’s no wonder the day goes by in a blur. The top piece of advice couples give in their English Wedding interviews is to take a moment to stop and take it all in, because everything happens in such a rush!
Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? I’ve had a 4 day extravaganza of a weekend with a concert on Thursday, shopping day Friday, calligraphy class on Saturday and 2 mountains climbed on Sunday! I barely know what day it is with all that going on, so it’s nice to be sat at my desk now with Bertie cat, where we have a fabulous wedding up our sleeves to share with you lovely folks out there in internet land.
If there was another job I wish I could do – if I’d trained, had talent and wasn’t freaked out by spiders(!) or really early wake ups – I’d be a florist. I’d grow my own flowers and style beautiful, modern weddings in a wildflowery, informal and breathtaking boho style. I’m lucky to have gotten to know some amazing folks in the wedding flowers game since I started the English Wedding Blog, and Claire from Wild Spirit is one of the very best – her eye for styling is just spot on, every single time.
How is your weekend going so far? I’m about to start teaching my calligraphy workshop in just under two hours, and super excited – but I had to share this lovely collection which landed in my inbox just recently. Ellis Bridals specialise in wedding dresses with classic shapes and detailing – think modern princess and you’re there! If your dream is to walk down the aisle and take his breath away with a stunning, classic wedding gown then you will adore this new collection.
Billed as ‘an ode to the silhouette’, Ellis Bridals 2019 wedding dress collection is designed to perfectly sculpt the female form.
Hey lovely! Happy FRIDAY!!! I’m totally feeling Friday vibes today – last night we were partying until the early hours in Manchester; this morning we’ve had a little shop in the big city, ready for my sister in law’s WEDDING at the end of the month. SOOOO exciting!!! So every wedding I see on my screen right now is totally capturing my heart. Tomorrow afternoon I’m teaching a modern calligraphy class in the Lakes – tickets are still available here if you can join us! – but first, I have an absolute gem of a wedding for you – you’re going to adore this.
