Me & Wayne through the years <3

I think I knew my wedding obsession had gone too far when I burst into tears as my boyfriend Wayne presented me with Olly Murs tickets for my birthday. Instead of the ring shaped box I’d been hoping for! Continue reading

thirty under thirty #23 | uk wedding blog


Morning!! You may or may not be pleased to know that I seem to be over my tummy bug, two weeks later. I have celebrated this with a rancid creme egg (totally regret buying the 3 for £1 offer) and copious gin. This weeks thirty under thirty has an unintentional floral theme (h&m home still totally nailing it). I always seem to be drawn to florals but even more so over the past week, I must be subconsciously longing for Spring. I hope your week is going ok? We currently have a fair amount of snow, but no bruised bums from being pulled over by Atticus yet… Continue reading

a rustic english countryside wedding in an orchard | uk wedding blog

Emily and Lee Packington Moor 69

It is hump day in the middle of what is supposed to be the most depressing week of the year. I must say that being surrounded by weddings, the happiest of days, means that I rarely feel blue. It is such a lovely position to be in, looking at peoples happy memories every day. Today is no different, and this wedding has been beautifully captured by the fantastic Matt Bowen. Matt always comes up with great group shots, something that can be quite a challenge for photographers. I am also 90% sure the groom, Lee, is actually Gerard Butler.

a chic and contemporary wedding in Camden | uk wedding blog


Morning all. One of my favourite photos from a wedding day is definitely the confetti shot. It is quite bizarre leaving the dark insides of a cold church to be bombarded with pastel coloured paper, you can’t help but feel quite ecstatic so the photos are always happy and cheerful.

thirty under thirty #22 | uk wedding blog


shhhh! Let’s pretend that it is Thursday, but tomorrow is still Saturday. Deal? After a rather awful week with a bad tummy I am starting to feel slightly human again. Still delicate, but much more energy. Enough to peruse online shops, and decide I want everything. I think this week it is the bee print and the Astley Clarke ring (which is in the sale, so if you want it pop on over asap!). Our new beauty editor Kylie recommended the lip balm and the espa oil so you know that it will be good!

Facials. Where do you start? | UK WEDDING BLOG


Thank God It’s Friday! How are we?! I’m still nursing a little hang over. That’s what happens past your mid twenties, your hangovers last days. Not so much the head ache but the sheer exhaustion from far too much prosecco with a good friend/ client. Anyway, after waking up from being a bit too razzmatazzed ( Hangover Skin Savours mini How to on its way) and my skin looking pretty horrific, what better way to treat it than a facial?
