You’re about to get hitched. You’re happy. You’re head-over-heels in love. But you’re heavily distracted by one not-so-tiny, crucial detail – where to go on your honeymoon!
The way I see it, honeymoons are a personal reward for you and your new life partner. After months of wedding stress, the two of you can stop worrying about your friends and family, and just focus on yourselves. It’s a wonderful opportunity (before the realities of life start again) when you can splurge on unique honeymoon destinations and experiences and not feel guilty. So make the most of it!

Planning the entertainment for your wedding can be stressful at any time, but a Christmas wedding? How do you strike the right balance? Do you go fully Jingle Bells, or ignore the festive feeling and stick to the songs and sounds that matter to you? The thing is, with those blazing log fires, mistletoe, and frosty weather – all the better for snuggling close – winter is an incredibly romantic time of year. So, whatever theme you choose for your wedding, it has the potential to be magical. Your wedding entertainment is that little sprinkling of fairy dust on top, that makes the whole thing sparkle.
It’s happened. Your best mate in the whole world is getting married. He’s found the partner of his dreams and now he’s bestowed you with one of the greatest honours a man can receive – being the best man.
This is not something your friend has done lightly. Out of all of his pals, he’s chosen you to be by his side during one of the biggest days of his life. It’s not just a title; it’s a testament to how much your friend loves and appreciates you. (You feeling the pressure yet?)
Although today’s wedding starts with a church service, the vibe is wonderfully whimsical and woodlandy, with celebrations under canvas and even a hand fasting ceremony in the afternoon! The venue is Bedfordshire’s enchanting Tofte Manor; the photographer is our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography.
Gorgeous couple Georgina and Ben had a relaxed and beautiful wedding in the summer. Their day is beautifully styled with glorious bouquets of pink peonies, purple and coral blooms with splashes of greenery and fabulous textures. The peony styling continues through to the wedding cake, which is displayed prettily on rustic wooden tables at the wedding breakfast. Georgina’s stunning lace dress is the star of the show, and her delicate flower crown is just beautiful!
Hey lovelies! Are you having a nice week? I’m a little black-Fridayed-OUT already, is it just me? My inbox is bursting!!! I have so many lovely things to share with you for the rest of this week though, I’m so excited!
