a fun, colourful DIY wedding with a hint of pug love | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Morning and a very merry Monday to you lovely reader. I *met* Chloe online about 3 years ago and fell a little in love with her, her personality and (mainly) her pugs. I love that Chloe and Jonathan added a little pug love in to their wedding, in amongst all the colour, DIY and personal touches. Chloe’s hair is absolute goals with that pretty braid and gorgeous hair clip. You can tell their day was filled with love and happiness and I am so honoured to be able to share their glorious wedding on the blog. I wish you both (and the pugs) a long and happy life together.

Happy Sunday all!! Have you had lovely weekend? In between all of the torrents we got to enjoy some beautiful sunshine (think I may have burnt a little today actually). This week has been good! You will be bored to death of it by now but I am still undecided on house stuff, but definitely further than I was last week. I have included a cookie recipe and an easy risotto recipe, hope you enjoy!Read More

Why I’m Not Changing My Name | UK Wedding Blog


I’ve never liked my last name. It’s just plain weird, and I don’t have the kind of connection with the greater Sacharin family that might have made its oddness endearing rather than burdensome. I spent my younger years waiting for the day I could ditch it for something strangers would know how to pronounce. Something I wouldn’t have to spell out over the phone. And, above, all, something not quite so eminently mockable—if I never hear another joke about artificial sweeteners again, it will be too soon. Because my name is one so outlandishly bad, it seemed almost inevitable that any man I might get involved with would have a better one.

The Golden Rules of Highlighting |UK Wedding Blog


You’d have to have been living in a hole for the last year or so to not know that highlighting is huge. Strobing, non touring, whatever you want to call it, glow is where it’s at, and it doesn’t look like its going anywhere either. As with any makeup trend, it’s not always easy to successfully execute – but who doesn’t want to look healthy and airbrushed? I promise it’s easy to do when you know how! Here’s my tips on getting the Instaglow.Read More

The table plan | uk wedding blog

So we’ve had pretty much all of our RSVPS back now, and everyone (bar 1 person) said yes! Which is great…but also OHMYGOD I did not plan for EVERYONE to RSVP with a yes and now we’re over capacity. The chapel seats 80 and we currently have 125 guests coming. Don’t got me wrong, I’m SO happy everyone who we wanted to be there can be, so now we’re trying to come up with a solution (live stream the ceremony in another room?).

And then there’s the table plan which we’re currently at one table of people too many. I’m trying not to get too stressed about it though, I’m sure we’ll work something out (we have to!).Read More

On the longest day of the year and in an authentic lobster shack in East Quay, Carly and Alex tied the knot. A Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired a colourful and whimsical celebration complete with hanging ribbons, fairy lights, and a boldly beautiful floral design by A Vintage Wedding. The images captured by Laura are exquisite, my favourites being (as aways with Babb) the couple portraits.

Merry Monday to you! We last left each other with a builder in my house and no internet. Last week has been quite home based as we get stuff done, this week will be too I think. Nothing major to report this week. We got a final quote back for the bathroom so I think we are going ahead with it (yikes), we are finalising the kitchen this week and I will no doubt still be umming and ahhing about what the hell colour I will be painting the living room.
