Madeleine regal inspired bridal tiara from Olivier Laudus

Olivier Laudus bridal accessories in the UKAn interesting title for a post: shouldn’t the title be “bridal accessories fit for a princess”? Well perhaps not quite (if these were full of the very best diamonds and precious stones they would be) – but that’s not what this blog post is about. This is simply about a gem of a wedding business: ethics, customer service and dedication.

Every once in a while I meet someone who really inspires me. While I’ve blogged Oliver Laudus designs and accessories before, I had only spoken to Sangeeta Laudus online (on twitter and by email). We had a long chat a weekend or two ago, and having originally wanted to feature the new bridal tiaras from Olivier Laudus I knew I had to write a bit more about an inspiring, ethical and admirable wedding supplier.

Nothing conveys the atmosphere of a wedding day more than a little music, and that’s why I love watching wedding films. This one’s a special treat though, as Cristina and MP’s Aviemore wedding film really matches the music to the rapidly changing spirit of their wedding day!

From the madcap crazy antics of the boys getting ready to the serenity and quiet excitement of the girls’ preparation in the morning, to the wedding vows in church and then the party afterwards, the film by Love Gets Sweeter captures the moments and accompanies them in style.

Charlene from Love Gets Sweeter warned me the music is “a bit marmite” and I was intrigued. Turns out I bloody love marmite! I think you might just love this too… takes a bit of talent to fit a wedding film to a soundtrack like this one but it’s beautifully done!

I don’t know why I had such a hard time with earrings for the big day but safe to say my troubles are over!

As you know I managed to find the beautiful vintage style rose studs from a website and shop based in Australia (still waiting for these but they have been dispatched!) and then found some cheap small crystal studs to wear in four more earring holes. For some reason I was set on wearing a small red heart in my highest earring hole and after searching HIGH AND LOW I found that no one sells what I had in mind! So, it was time for a cheeky see-if-someone-can-do-a-bespoke-order!

Tatty Devine are a small little company based in London that make amazing art jewellery. Tatty Bojangles talks about them here. (By the way Tatty Bojangles has recently set up a new website showcasing all that is stylish and vintage about Hen Dos – forget the L plates and flashing tiaras! More on this after my hen do I think!)

This is more about love than weddings (but then, weddings should also be more about love than about weddings, shouldn’t they! So it works nicely).

This is a wedding I love for its character. Emma and Andy’s wedding day looks like so much fun! They’ve used their imaginations to create a day with a cool British theme – lots of red and blue – with a countryside twist: welly wanging being a definite highlight!

As a Fine Art student, and a newbie on the photography scene (www.sallythurrellphotography.com) I had a very specific idea of what I wanted for our wedding photography. David left me to my own devices for this one, he just wanted to make sure we had enough ‘sound’ pictures to remember our day by, meaning anything else I requested on top would be a bonus.

After discussing it with Carli, who attracts a lot of ‘creatives’ in her Teahouse, she suggested a few local names for me to look into. I was quite sure I didn’t want a traditional wedding photographer, and, to be honest, didn’t like the style of any of the photographers I looked into in the North East. When I looked into Danielle and Trudie’s work I was smitten; totally natural shots with a quirky edge- exactly what I was looking for! I am, as many people are at the moment, enjoying experimenting with older film cameras, ttv and lomography, and really wanted this style to also feature in our wedding album. Danielle and Trudie will be using Diana and film cameras aswell as DSLRs to capture our day, and post editing photographs to give a film-style look to them.

I officially love the English Wedding Showcase. It’s brilliant. Have you seen the blog updates on the home page by McAvoy Photography and by Neil Redfern?

On the English Wedding Showcase this week

These are my favourite images of the week from the English Wedding Showcase. Manchester wedding photographer Neil Redfern captured an enchanting image of this bride and groom near Mitton Hall:

And McAvoy Photography are being filmed so they can present an introduction to how they work: it’s all about getting to know you, the bride and groom: are you lovey-dovey, jokey? This lovely post with their daughters calling the shots gives a little insight into their world:
