1. Wear Your Everyday Gold Jewellery

Instead of statement sparkly jewels, we’re seeing brides choosing pretty layering pieces to style their big day outfit. The general trend is that brides are wanting to be comfortable and more relaxed on their wedding day and this is a great way to choose jewellery that you can actually wear again long after the day itself. The style is more modern and minimal with just a hint of embellishment such as a decorative pendant. Opt for gold, it’s more luxe and looks great with ivory.

2. Go Natural

Brides are doing their research when it comes to choosing their wedding dress and we are seeing more and more brides wanting a natural option. Fabrics like 100% pure silk & lace are the key to creating a beautiful gown. There are so many amazing choices out there for dresses made in the UK using natural fabrics which can really set the tone for a sustainable wedding. Brands that use zero waste cutting techniques and local manufacturing are a really popular choice for a dress with a conscience.

I stumbled across Belle & Bunty‘s instagram the other day: a haven for sassy brides looking to avoid the ‘delicate flower’ bridal style and embrace something more relaxed and fashion-aware: dare I say ballsy?

Put it this way: There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t find a wedding outfit that feels like YOU. No need to change your style because the wedding industry wants you in a corseted bodice / trailing gown / fitted white lace wotsit. And if you’re also looking for an eco-aware brand with genuine ethics and a commitment to sustainability, girl you are in the right place! Belle & Bunty’s gorgeous dresses can even be made in vegan fabrics… which ticks every little box for me.

Inspired by country glamour and the Nashville, Tennessee music scene, Belle & Bunty’s ‘Islands in the Stream’ is the latest collection by design duo Belle & Bunty. From its humble roots around the campfire to the glitz and glamour of its biggest stars performing at the iconic Grand Ol Opry country music venue, this collection pays homage to those heartfelt love songs that beckon the great outdoors and the powerful independent women that wander across them.

I love Kate and Andrew’s best thing about being married (from my questionnaire at the end of the blog) – they say it’s “having each other’s families“! How lovely is that?!! Their wedding report is as wonderful as the images of their day, the spectacular location of King’s College London, their creative choice of wedding readings… this is all a very special wedding blog and one I’m proud to feature!
