Isn’t it cold this week?! I’ve gotten so used to all the glorious sunshine I’m having to layer up in jumpers again until we get a second wave of SUMMER! But in the meantime I’ve this glorious August wedding for you, full of sunny tropical florals and vibrant colours, with images by lovely English Wedding member Tara at Pudding & Plum Photography. Alex and Pete’s day is wonderful with some fabulous styling touches, and still brilliantly real and down to earth. The gorgeous happy couple celebrated their day at their family home, with a marquee reception and lots of lovely personal touches.
For those of you planning your 2021 and 2022 weddings… if you’re in a position to plan and book suppliers early, I implore you to do so. Your wedding will be hosted, captured, styled and celebrated by the amazing independent creative businesses that make the UK wedding industry the sparkling star it is. And we need your support. While the pandemic has us all locked down for now, established wedding vendors are working hard to stay strong and keep earning – and those early deposits and bookings could save us and our families from truly desperate times.
Not all weddings are created equal, folks… and on your planning journey you can expect to hear some ‘interesting’ opinions about things brides ‘should’ do / have and things grooms ‘should‘ say / wear… because the preconceptions about weddings are HUGE!
Opinions come from all sides: families, the more traditional suppliers, the wedding press (you know, the pink magazines which are all about brides?) – and they’re steeped in tradition. Weddings have so much patriarchal baggage it’s a journey in itself to tackle the preconceptions head on and come up with a day that’s just right for you both – in equal measures!
Morning lovelies! When this bridesmaids special landed in my inbox I thought it was a really sweet idea to share. Wedding days are special from the moment you wake up, and for those of you starting the day with your best girls you’ll make some really special memories for you all to treasure. Here’s a lovely reminder of what you all have to look forward to! This was sent in by hair and make up artist Kate Waller, who is based in Kent.
Hey lovelies, how are you feeling after yesterday’s update? For me #stayathome still seems like the only possible way we can keep our loved ones safe – patience is the way to get there. Anyway… I have the loveliest wedding to share with you today. It’s a treat to be able to share these little reminders of ‘normal’ life: and Emma & Giles’s day had so many beautiful moments that make me smile. Their wedding style is classic and timeless, with some pretty personal touches (the little heather place settings are so cute!) and glorious images by our friends at Evolve Photography in Devon.
