Hey lovelies! I’ve been saving this glorious shoot until the end of the week because it’s just so special – the colours are just WOW, the bride’s Amki lehenga set sparkles and shines beautifully – and the look is so elegant, dramatic and romantic all at once! Lovely Charan from Ivory Events & Weddings sent this in, and honestly, my weekend just wouldn’t be the same without it. Don’t miss the list of talented wedding suppliers who brought this dreamy photoshoot to life: scroll all the way through to see everyone involved. Over to Charan with the details…

I wanted to provide an Anglo-Indian inspired shoot to couples out there who want to tie in their British upbringing and celebrate their Asian heritage. The table layout illustrates something a little different to the ‘normal’ wedding by using a non-traditional colour palette too. I was inspired by interior design magazines where the colour palettes are now bursting with calmer and softer colours.

Today’s gorgeous pair Jessica & Rhys were married at Chelsea Old Town Hall in September, describing their wedding as “a magical day surrounded by our favourite people in the world.” They both love classic styling, but most importantly wanted a relaxed affair with no stress about specific styling themes – the most important thing was to enjoy the moment with their loved ones.

Jessica’s bridal look is just stunning: “I knew I wanted to wear separates as it was a more relaxed affair. I had been searching high and low for the perfect full length silk skirt and found the one I wore on Instagram via Belle & Bunty who have the sweetest little shop in Kentish Town. I ended up pairing the skirt with a matching silk cami and lace long sleeved top, both also from Belle & Bunty. I loved the contrast of this outfit with my Mallorca dresses and the lace made me feel like Grace Kelly on her wedding day! Elegant and sophisticated.”

It’s a gloriously sunny day today, and I’m spending the morning doing a little insta-photography for our friends at Lily Arkwright – but I couldn’t resist taking a break to share this fabulously colourful wedding styled shoot with you. The look is light, lush and dreamy (ooooohhhh that sunshine – those dresses!) and the tablescapes are to die for. Huge thanks to lovely Rebecca Wilkie for sharing this one with us. It all happened in beautiful Yorkshire, so I recommend any of you lovelies in the north of England take a minute to check out the list of brilliant suppliers below!

Spring is in the air with this epic Navy and Coral shoot with splashes of gold. We absolutely love that Pantone announce Classic Blue as their colour for 2020. Blue can be luxurious and ooze elegance and we are so excited to see how our couples will use it this year.

Good morning! I have been waiting for MONTHS to share this stunning wedding with you… lovely Lisa & Mark were married in December – and the Christmas tree just seemed perfect to share with you right now. Who has their tree up? Ours is on its way down from the loft tonight and I’m excited to get the baubles out later! It won’t compare to this beauty though…

The images from Lisa & Mark’s wedding are by our lovely friends at Amanda Karen Photography. This is Christmas with class and fabulous style: a black tie do with silver and white, eucalyptus and plenty of sparkle. Lisa is spectacular in a Stewart Parvin gown and Jimmy Choos; Mark’s Hugo Boss suit is uber smart and sleek for a sophisticated winter wedding at Caswell House.

I met Amanda and Hutch at The National Wedding Show in London and instantly loved their style and vision. It helped that they were both so warm and friendly and instantly understood the vibe we were after for the big day.


Hey lovely! I have another fabulous wedding to share with you today – this one I totally adore for all the pretty styling touches, and for our gorgeous couple whose stunning smiles are making me grin back at my screen today! I love the leafy, foliage-centred stationery and the cute knitted people (my mum used to make these! Anyone else?!), oh and the gloriously light and airy colour palette which just couldn’t be more perfect for a marquee wedding. Photos are by our wonderfully talented friends at Amanda Karen Photography (and Danielle & Joe’s review of one of my fave wedding photographers makes me a very happy wedding blogger indeed!).

Hi lovelies! How is your wedding planning going and are you hooked on Pinterest yet? I’ve spent today falling down random Pinterest holes… it’s not been a mega productive one so far! And the photoshoot I’m about to share with you hasn’t helped at all… there are so many stunning ideas here. We’re talking late summer wedding style – for that brief period of time when the summer begins to fade and wisps of autumn stir the air. A delicate, pastel colour palette still works this late in the season, but tinged with plum tones and darker pinks the look becomes something truly special to work with the earliest days of autumn.

I thought we all deserved a little treat this Sunday afternoon, so gather round and snuggle up for an extra special dose of wedding lovely. Our fabulous friend Amanda Karen Photography sent in this beauty of a shoot and I’ve fallen for it hook, line and sinker. The styling is exquisite; the colour palette is fabulous. This is a shoot in two halves: the copper dress takes my breath away and I’d love to see more brides wearing such a bold statement dress… but if that’s not for you then the bridal jumpsuit is unique, different and 100% on trend for 2019! Both outfits are by the always fabulous Charlie Brear.
