Hey everyone! I hope you’re all staying safe and warm through this ridiculously cold spell! We have no snow here on the Cumbrian coast – in fact it’s been lovely and sunny since Friday – but omg is it cold on the beach! So I’m staying in, snuggling into my slippers and hot chocolate and happy to be sharing some extra special blog features with you all in the run up to Christmas. Today’s is no exception… did you see our list of 15 favourite UK wedding planners published yesterday? If you did, you’ll have spotted our lovely friend Helen from Pudding Bridge. Helen’s not only a multi-award winning planner, she’s also written some advice features for the blog over the last few months and we’re thrilled to have her joining our little team of sponsors today.

Carmela Weddings are Sam and Lisa and they’re not your average wedding planners. They believe that luxury and edgy are a perfect match – and make it their mission to bring them together in weddings that are unforgettable. I’m really rooting for these guys: wedding planning needs a refresh, and couples with a clear sense of style have been crying out for a duo like this for too long!

The Carmela Weddings ethos is firmly based on luxury, but luxury rooted in style, art and fashion as Sam and Lisa believe that the potent mix of these elements is the way to create a truly unique day that reflects their couples’ personalities.

As a husband and wife team, they are able to offer something different by seeing the wedding process through male and female eyes. This doesn’t simply mean that Sam knows suits and Lisa knows flowers, or vice versa, but their skills and experience in design, event management, entertainment, logistics and more ensures that any aspect of the wedding you want and deserve is in safe hands. They’re also a member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners so you can know you’re getting a professional service too!
