The perfect wedding gift with Le Petit Ballon | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Good afternoon! So I get to do some wonderful things for work, but getting free wine I can share with my friends is definitely one of my favourites. Whilst my tipple of choice in a bar is gin, I love a red wine at home. I am a little fussy with my wines and will always choose the same type so when a huge box arrived of rose, red and white I was a little taken aback with where to start. Thankfully the box comes with all the information you could possibly need about each wine and felt exceptionally taken care of, so how do you get a magical wine box? Le Petit Ballon is your answer. And you can get one every month. For you, or your favourite couple. Read More

We did it!

By Lucy

After 1 year, 6 months and 28 days of being engaged, Harry and I got married on 21st July! It was easily the best day of my life, but I say this with caution as, of course, not everything went perfectly. In what will probably be my penultimate blog post, I wanted to share with you some things I’ve learnt, which I hope might be helpful to any brides-to-be reading this. FYI, this is a warts-and-all kind of post: I aim to be honest and open with all of my blog posts, as I don’t want to set unrealistic expectations by giving a curated version of my experiences.

a hen party idea to indulge in | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Hello! Oh my goodness, I have been so so excited to share these images from the most amazing experience I had a few weeks ago. Dineindulge got in contact with me and asked if I would like to have a private chef come and cook for me and some friends. The answer to that was always going to be a yes wasn’t it?

We moved house in February but hadn’t really had a dinner party yet but it was something I had wanted to organise, the weather had been glorious and whilst I hadn’t bought garden furniture yet we managed to move the dining table outside and set up the most beautiful midsummer night dream feel. Now, the food…

Stoke Place – Wedding Venue | UK WEDDING BLOG

By Laura

Good morning lovely readers! Hasn’t it been the most glorious summer so far? I hope all you July brides have had the most perfect weddings and for the August brides – not long to go now! I’m back today with another wedding venue just minutes away from the Buckinghamshire/Berkshire border called Stoke Place. It is a beautiful 17th Century mansion set across 26 acres of land with 39 bedrooms for you and your guests to make use of if you would like. We got asked a couple of months ago if we would like to stay for the night and have dinner in their in house restaurant The King & Lamb so of course we just couldn’t say no – someone’s got to do the research haven’t they?!

Todays post is a collaboration with One4all, this is the first post to introduce you to the brand, the second post will give you the chance to win a gift card to spend with them (or gift to someone for their wedding?!). Read More

On Hen Parties

By Lucy

It’s less than 2 weeks to go until our wedding, but today I wanted to talk about hen dos. I’m using the plural, because I ended up having 3! I’m not saying I’m milking this wedding, but to any brides-to-be reading this, my advice would be to take the opportunities to celebrate when they present themselves!

Minimoon Ideas from Carbis Bay Hotel | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

Whilst we were in Cornwall a couple of weeks back, we got to have an exclusive look at the soon to be finished new lodges at the Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate. We’ve been looking forward to seeing these as Carbis Bay is one of Cornwall’s most sparkly little bays and it looks like they’ll be something special indeed. As part of our stay at the Gannet Inn {here} we also got to use their spa for the afternoon which felt like we could have been abroad with the view out to the sun trap of a pool and views to the beach below. It’s a really exciting time for the hotel as these lodges are unlike anything else available in the UK. Imagine sitting by your own plunge pool overlooking that beach! Read More

Honeymooning in Cornwall, Bedruthan Hotel & Spa | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

For the second part of our Cornish stay last week we drove up the coast to Mawgan Porth, the stunning cliff lined bay that Bedruthan Hotel & Spa sits on. You might remember the views from our stay at The Scarlet Hotel a couple of years back? The hotels are sisters {I love how that’s a female term, it would sound weird saying that hotels are brothers?} and where the Scarlet is adults only and aimed at couples, Bedruthan is aimed at being family friendly. So do definitely bear this mind if thinking of a minimoon, there will be a lot of families and young children there but that being said, we certainly found it to be romantic enough for couples wanting to get away from everything too. I’ll start by saying that the exterior isn’t pretty, built in the 60s, this has a real retro/art deco kind of vibe which carries throughout. Ben joked and said that the colourful pool chairs made us feel like we were in Palm Springs. The rooms aren’t slick or smart or our usual boutique style, yet there are SO many things that we loved about Bedruthan and it really is an incredible resort on the coast.

Honeymooning in Cornwall, The Gannet Inn | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

Last week we travelled to Cornwall for a couple of days of mini-mooning {that’s the term used for a smaller version of a honeymoon if you’re new around here, or something you could take just after your wedding for a short break before planning a proper honeymoon later on}. Cornwall in the summer, and with the dreamy weather we had last week can’t be beaten. But I actually really love Cornwall year round and we’ve had some really cosy trips there in the Winter where you can sit by the fire, eat really good food {Cornwall is amazing for food!} and wrap up for beach walks. There’s just nothing better than getting away from the city and where else but Cornwall with countryside in the middle and dramatic coastlines all around. You can fly {into Newquay}, get the train or just jump in the car like we did. It is the furthest point of the UK but that makes it all the more magical an escape, worlds away from London. Carbis Bay, and St Ives, have always been a favourite of ours and last week we discovered a couple of new hotels. Our first night was spent at The Gannet Inn, a small boutique hotel in the best location.Read More

Best Men & Bridesmaid Outfit Shopping

The Best Men

From speaking to people I don’t think it’s that common for the bride to attend suit shopping. However, as much as I love my husband to be he’s the most indecisive man in the world so I went to ensure suits were chosen. We arrived before the best men to have a look around the high street. We were looking for something that was loose enough for the guys to dance in – really tight suits seem to be the trend and it’s just not my vibe. Tailored slim fit yes but super skinny suit trousers are a no.
