My blog publishing day is a Monday, but I’m writing this on Friday 24th March as it’s exactly ONE YEAR TO GO until we get married! I’ve been nervously watching the weather for the whole of March to get validation of choosing our date at the right time, and it’s been a temperamental one to say the least!

So here goes…Read More

New Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Skincare Range | UK Wedding Blog

Good morning! Time for some skincare newness from Clarins. The more Clarins products I try, the more I see they do skin so very well, and I feel the launches they continue to add to their extensive range always really understand what women want from their skincare – intelligent, effective, easy to understand products which aren’t super complicated but work well to deliver results. The newest range is Hydra Essentiel – 5 hydrating products for all skin types aimed at “thirsty skin” {ie. dehydrated} and anyone looking to boost radiance, glow as well as firmness and luminosity. Read More


The eponymous hero contemplated suicide in the second half of Shakespeare’s Hamlet and it was way less fun than when I contemplated a bunch of honeymoon options.Read More

I have been waiting to blog this wedding since Sarah got engaged. I went to school with her, and even though she was a couple of years below I would often bump in to her on a night out in QHK. I had watched her and Levi’s story unfold and I was so happy to finally see she was engaged and I knew the wedding was going to be beautiful. I was right. The mix of soft pretty blooms with golds and neutrals makes this wedding undeniable timeless and elegant. It was such an honour to blog this one. Congratulations Sarah and Levi!

MEGATONE WEDDING| Wedding Flowers… a Florists View

Michelle and Me!

This is the blog I have been putting off writing as I’m nervous to write it. Having a florist (Swaffham and Fakenham Florist) with my sister, the flowers at our wedding after the marriage itself is probably the most important thing to me. With floral’ing up over 80 weddings a year, to get to do mine is just so exciting, and stressful. As I mentioned last week I feel a lot of pressure with our wedding flowers as people often tell me, they can’t wait to see them. If anyone talks to me about our wedding the flowers are the first thing that are mentioned. So my motto with the flowers is GO BIG or GO HOME, I can’t disappoint now can I!

Afternoon all! Manchester town hall is one of my favourite wedding venues. I adore the gorgeous bee mosaic floor and the stunning architecture. Today’s wedding is a total gem, I love the blush pink, the luxe feeling and the authenticity captured by Mike. Plus those Louboutins…wedding shoe goals. Oli and Aimee took their love of food and translated it through their day, they ate in their favourite restaurant with all of their loved ones around them, I would have loved to have been a guest for the six course tasting menu which looks delicious. The story of how they met their photographer is also so very wonderfully serendipitous.  Enjoy!

Afternoon all. I hope your Monday is going as well as can be so far, I think I will try and get a Weekend Edit to go up tonight or tomorrow as I have a few things to update you on if you haven’t been following the vlogs. If you have watched the vlogs you would have seen these beauties a little while ago. We are taking a little visit to candle heaven today. If you know me at all by now, you will be aware of my candle love and the constant search for the perfect blend. The lovely people at Croydon Candle Co sent me some samples a few weeks ago and after vigorous testing I can tell all about their candles! Read More

a pretty, intimate DIY wedding for under 10k | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Good morning dear reader! How was your weekend? I hope you managed to get a bit of planning stuck in amongst good food, long walks and naps? We have a pretty back garden on the blog today. Mia and Nathan wanted a truly informal day, and they totally achieved that. Filled with friends and family, they took everyone back to their house after the ceremony before an evening reception. They stuck to their 5k-10k budget and managed to pull it off to perfection. On top of this, Jenny managed to capture some stunning images of the couple in the early evening sunshine. I hope you enjoy!

Review – Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals Foundation |UK Wedding Blog


This month’s foundation review is of Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals. You guys may have seen I’ve been doing some work with them, including being invited to be part of the Spring campaign shoot (literally as terrifying as it sounds, but such an amazing experience!) This brand is such a hidden gem of salon quality products with great benefits that much of it has penetrated my professional kit. During the last year or so I’ve tried lots of their products, and I have literally become addicted to this foundation on myself in the last few weeks, so I figured I’d review it Read More
