It’s December, time for festive cheer! So, it probably feels a little strange that today I’m bringing you a piece titled ‘wedding day regrets’ but bear with me, I promise it will be worth it!

Nothing saddens me more than listening to the words “if I could do it all again I wish I would have…” and, if you are a 2018 bride to be heading into the year of your wedding, you have the wonderful luxury of time and the fabulous opportunity that comes with it to avoid those wedding day regrets I hear about too often.

I feel as though I’ve been on a journey with gypsophila – baby’s breath – over the years. In the early days of the English Wedding Blog it was a little-known bridal flower. Then with the vintage trend and especially with more DIY and budget weddings, it became the go-to flower for styled shoots and a perfect complement to the jam jars, hessian and lace look. And then, it plummeted from favour right along with chair covers and sugared almonds!!

I totally love this idea – an afternoon with your best girls learning how to make macarons in a beautifully styled shoot. I agree with wedding planner Jenna Hewitt, who put together this gorgeous shoot / experience day – it’s all too easy to let planning take over your life, and it’s so important to take a break and have some fun!

Styled shoot macaron workshop with Jenna Hewitt wedding planner and Annamarie Stepney Photography (1)

The inspiration for the shoot came from the insight that, all too often, brides-to-be can get so caught up in the “to do list” that they don’t allow time to enjoy the whole planning experience.
