Thirty Under Thirty #8 | uk wedding blog

thirty under thirty pounds autumn

Morning!!!! Nearly the weeekkkenndddd. Yay! Sorry I didn’t do #sygmdoesgbbo yesterday, I just had no time and the bake took about 4 hours. I will try and get it done this week though. I am loving how autumnal todays Thirty under Thirty is! I have been really impressed with the high street brands lately. I also think the John Lewis vase and the silver pineapple would look wonderful at a wedding! I also enjoyed seeing the Christmas tab on the John Lewis website. I did a little wiggle, but don’t worry. I will wait till at least november before I start filling the blog with christmas inspiration and weddings! Maybe.  Continue reading

[video] My August Favourites | uk wedding blog

Favethumbnail

Afternoon! I am having just the worst blogging day today, I can’t access emails, images are the wrong size and the content scheduled for today wasn’t actually allowed to go up. I meant to share this about a week a go but never got round to it so I am cheating and using it as a filler until I can access my emails to get wedding goodness. Sometimes I really hate that my job solely depends on technology and whilst I do what I can to have content in more than one place, sometimes everything works against me.  Continue reading

a rustic diy wedding at Keble College, Oxford | uk wedding blog

Afternoon, I have finally managed to finish this post off after faffing this morning with a new workspace. I keep getting headaches so decided to move next to a window (see good old instagram). I usually choose a picture of the couple for the main blog image but I saw this one of Sam in her Suzanne Neville gown and knew it was the one. There is the moment during your wedding morning when you finally put your dress on. The dress you have been agonising over for a very long time. Chosen with your closest friends and dreamt about night after night. When it is finally time to put on the dress you will be wearing to walk down the aisle, it is a wonderfully strange feeling and one I can’t explain. You have that to look forward to!

I hope you are currently reading this curled up under the duvet scrolling through on your phone. If not, get back in to bed, it’s the weekend! We have been loving True Blood this week, we always have a TV series on the go for when we can’t decide what to watch. Its a little weird but worth the watch. I am off to a party tonight, welcoming some new neighbours. I hope you have a lovely weekend no matter what you’re up to!  Continue reading

beauty favourites friday – autumn make up looks | uk wedding blog

Beauty Favourites wedding

Another Friday! Michael and I were going to picnic today but the weather isn’t looking too great, we may have been a little optimistic on that front (as soon as I wrote this the sun came out, we may go after all). I just took delivery of an ASOS order and one of the dresses I ordered is maternity wear. It was exactly what I wanted, just made for a bump. It’s a size 10, fits perfectly (I’d be worried if it didn’t) and the style of the dress means its ok it has a few extra pleats of fabric. Does anyone else do this? Please tell me you do. Mum, I am not pregnant btw.

Thirty Under Thirty #7 | uk wedding blog

TUT7Header

Afternoon!!! It’s nearly the weeeeeekend. I can almost smell the prosecco.

I hope you enjoy this weeks instalment of Thirty Under Thirty, I always love doing this feature, then regret that I chose thirty items as it takes so long to find, photoshop and link it all up. But I feel its worth it as you all seem to enjoy it. I think my favourite thing featurde this week is the Tom Ford nail polish (in black cherry), it is the perfect autumnal colour. Second favourite are the Bombay Duck mugs. I have just got some exciting emails about a few projects I am currently working on, one I can talk about on the 1st of October. The other is a new collab feature which will hopefully start within the next couple of weeks.

a Gatsby inspired glamorous wedding in Northumberland | uk wedding blog

Morning! Well, aren’t David and Julia a gorgeous couple? When Rachel submitted this to me, I couldn’t get over how incredible Julia’s gown looks on her. Pronovias are one of my favourites as I love the feminine tailoring. I wish I had had the opportunity to try one on, maybe someone will let me play dress up? I also adore that it was the groom who had an outfir change rather than the bride!

perfume – the 2015 collection by Jesus Peiro | uk wedding blog

jesus peiro perfume collection

By now you may have seen this beautiful new Jesus Peiro collection on nearly all the wedding blogs and I am not surprised. I love that each blogger has their own taste and will often showcase different suppliers and weddings, but one thing we all agree on is that the new Perfume collection is stunning. I was also lucky enough to be sent a sample of the perfume inspired by the collection which is a beautiful scent. Exceptionally fresh and citrus but with a good amount of woodiness to be worn in the evening. I want to be a Peiro bride.  Continue reading

George in Rye Wedding Venue (c) Babb Photo-10

Morning!!! Ok so, when The George in Rye asked if SYGM would like to stay a night, the answer was of course yes. My friend had just been down there for a wedding and the images looked gorgeous, I had also seen a few shoots featured there and knew how glorious it looked. I offered the opportunity to Laura Babb, one of my favourite wedding photographers. I knew that she would capture some beautiful images and have a lovely little rest during the madness of wedding season.  Continue reading
