Every now and then I stumble across something gorgeous which stops me in my tracks – and I have to share it with you. I was flitting around Pinterest and wedding blogs and gazing at wedding inspiration on facebook last week when I discovered these gorgeous images taken for Froufrou bridal boutique in Kent. Aren’t they beautiful?

Morning lovelies! Marcia and James’s wedding took my breath away when I first saw it. Beautiful styling, timeless grace and a venue with all the grandeur of the finest English stately home… a gorgeous Wiltshire wedding and a fabulous introduction to Trafalgar Park.

Watch out for some stunning portraits of the bride and groom towards the end of today’s feature!

Morning everyone! I quite fancied talking about toilets at weddings today. Hope that’s ok!? More specifically, where are your wedding guests going to wee, and is it going to be a special experience? Now I’ve got your attention 🙂 All wedding venues have loos, and you’d naturally expect a stately home to have a lovely bathroom. But what about luxury wedding toilets if you’re having a tipi wedding reception? Either way, adding special surprises and treats for guests on a loo break can be a very memorable and welcome touch!

Bathroom accessories – adding luxury to your special day

article by Mobile Thrones

Everyone wants their outdoor wedding to be memorable and fun for their guests. There are a few simple, yet luxurious, additions that you can easily do to make that happen. Every outdoor wedding needs bathroom facilities for the guests and adding a personal touch to them is an easy way to achieve luxury. One of the best assets you can provide for your guests are pre-made bathroom baskets. Bathroom baskets are an ideal way to make sure your guests – male and female – feel looked after on your big day.

Happy weekend everybody! I hope you have a lovely day planned – I do… I’m going to a wedding this afternoon and can’t wait! To make today even more exciting I have one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen to share with you all today. I’ve been waiting to share this one and I know you’ll love it too! It’s all about bright and fabulous colours, and beautiful design. About time we had another sunflowers wedding blog as well, isn’t it?!

The very lovely Kate got in touch with me a few weeks back to tell me about her wedding day. She told me, “We got married on 29th June and having read your blog everyday in the run up I would really like to feature on your site… We got married at iconic, art deco hotel The Midland in Morecambe and made the day as personal as possible.” I also got to have a peek at Kate and John’s wedding website – a key part of their day, which I think is fab! and when John’s wedding reading brought tears to my eyes I knew I had to share their sunsets and sunflowers wedding blog with you all.

A crop of wedding news articles and blog posts appeared in July discussing “feminist weddings” – and I wondered if I’d gone completely mad. Never mind the content of those articles for now, what is a feminist wedding?

What is feminism anyway? Wikipedia says:

The advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

And the new trend for feminist weddings?

Apparently it’s all about non-white wedding dresses, keeping our maiden names and not being given away by our dads. That’s it. Which implies that ivory dresses, no name changes and walking ourselves down the aisle are as revolutionary as burning bras was in the 1960s. Or so WeddingDays.co.uk would have us believe. It’s nice to hear from Time Magazine that a much larger survey on facebook this spring came out with very different conclusions – but the notion of “feminist weddings” does raise some interesting issues…

Felicity and Matthew’s wedding is right up my street. It’s personal and intimate, stylish and full of smiles and laughter. And what could be more impressive than a real English castle wedding blog? I love this!

English castle wedding Alexis Jaworski (1)At first Matthew and Felicity only laughingly considered a castle wedding, and were delighted when they realised Old Wardour Castle was an affordable option – a fourteenth century, Grade 1 listed building where they could hold their wedding ceremony. It’s stunning – a unique venue with an impressive history (although the wiki fact which sticks in my mind is that it was in Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves. Shoot me now).

Felicity is amazing – I love her short hair and she’s one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen wearing a David Fielden wedding dress. Matthew is her perfect partner, and looks gorgeous in his suit from Reiss. Do read their wedding report (below) for all the details and wedding suppliers from this Old Wardour Castle wedding, and also check out wedding photographer Alexis Jaworski. He supplied all of the images from this fab day – thanks Alexis!

Hiya! Did you see Stephanie and Michael’s Rushton Hall wedding on the blog the other day? I loved it to pieces, it was such an elegant and charming day. I always read my couples’ wedding reports carefully and make sure I give you lovely readers as many links to suppliers as I can – and the one which stood out for me from that wedding was Hand Drawn Maps. I instantly bookmarked the link Stephanie gave me, and got in touch with designer Lydia, who makes these lovely maps all herself – aren’t they amazing?

Hand drawn maps for weddings (3)

Stephanie and Michael told me, “All [our invitations and stationery were] cre­ated by the won­der­ful Lydia of Hand Drawn Maps. We had a bespoke motif with our ini­tials (our par­ents had this put on cham­pagne glasses for the day!) and she incor­po­rated the rose theme into all the sta­tionery.”

I loved Mark and Sarah’s wedding when I first saw the photos on my friend and sponsor Martin Price’s wedding photography blog. I asked if I could share them with you, and he said yes! What’s more, Sarah has written an amazing wedding report to share with you (at the end of the blog feature) which is full of ideas and recommendations.

wedding in Beaconsfield photographer Martin Price (1) Today’s lovely couple were married in Buckinghamshire. Their wedding in Beaconsfield is traditional and charming with some very personal touches – the personalised board for the cake is fab, and I love the bubbles they had for the wedding reception. Oh! And don’t miss Sarah’s explanation of table names… cities the engagement ring travelled to in Mark’s pocket before he got around to proposing! I love that story 🙂

Thanks also to lovely Martin – aka Martin Price Photography – for sending all the lovely images. Everyone – enjoy! Claire xxx

It’s not often the postman brings champagne in the post, but what a treat when he does! I was the very grateful recipient of two dinky bottles of bubbly a week or two ago, courtesy of London wedding catering company “rhubarb” (the speech marks come with the name) so the least I can do is return their lovely gesture by telling you all about them.

rhubarb wedding catering (1)

“rhubarb” sent me a press pack to read with their bottles of bubbly, so I will share that with you. If you’re looking for wedding catering in the London area, then these guys clearly have a very professional and reputable business – even Heston Blumenthal works alongside “rhubarb” creating menus with innovative style.

Who are “rhubarb” Weddings?

“rhubarb” – aside from being one of those words which looks odder the more times you type it! – is the premium food experience brand that caters for beautiful weddings. They bring a unique twist to food and work closely with brides and grooms to understand exactly what you want. They have three events offices in London, Cranleigh and Henley. All focus on bespoke tailor-made catering solutions for all sizes of event from charity galas to intimate dinners.
