Morning everyone! We’re about to hit what I’m calling ‘proper Christmas’, and most of you will be thinking about non-wedding stuff for a while – so with that in mind I’m sharing some wonderfully bookmarkable posts from now on. Read now if you’re feeling weddingy, or save for later if you’re rushed off your feet with Christmas prep!

Today the English Wedding Blog is all about wedding hair. I’m no expert (think of me as an expert on anything carefree and windswept!) but I know someone who is! We all know winter can trash our hair on a daily basis so here are some brilliant tips to help you avoid the wild, snowy look on your wedding day.

Getting your hair right for a winter wedding isn’t as easy as it sounds. As well as having to deal with the wintry weather and central heating, you also need to think about the thicker, more luxurious fabrics you’re likely to wear and the design of your dress.


UK wedding cake designers are the best in the world. My favourite cake designers are all based in the UK, and there’s so much choice in wedding cakes you’ll never struggle to find one you love! Gone are the days when designers were limited by convention; ingredients for a modern wedding cake include folklore, nature and Russian jewellery boxes – at least according to the fabulous Rosalind Miller Cakes!

A Winter Garden – Rosalind Miller Cakes

Rosalind Miller’s Winter Garden wedding cake is a true showstopper; the ideal statement cake for a winter wedding celebration. I love icy blues and silver for a winter wedding; the delicate styling and flower stems of this cake make it both intricate and striking.

Ring O Roses Rosalind Miller Cakes

For a floral wedding cake and an English garden wedding style, I just love the Ring O Roses cake – inspired by a nursery rhyme, it has a pretty simplicity and girlish colours which work beautifully together.

Powder Blue and Ivory Roses – Rosalind Miller Cakes


I have a blog post by one of my lovely sponsors to share with you today. As the days get colder I think it’s the perfect time to introduce Wrapor’s winter wedding cover ups. Picture the scene: you wake up and peer out of the window on the morning of your wedding day (in December). There’s a light dusting of snow. Do you panic, or smile because there’s a cosy bridal shrug hanging by your wedding dress? That’s right – you’re a savvy bride. You feel smug, because you know you’ll be snug in your gorgeous bridal shrug…

I’ll hand over to Kay to tell you more!
