IF THE SLIPPER FITS…

Speaking as a woman with a love of beautiful shoes and as a passionate collector of high-heels, I can totally understand why many ladies choose to splash out on a pair of opulent Choos, Valentinos or Manolos for their wedding day.

How to Book a Maldives Honeymoon, The Ultimate Guide | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

Afternoon! I hope you’re having a lovely week, not long until another long weekend hooray. We’ve had some really great feedback on our trip to the Maldives a couple of weeks back {full honeymoon features on where we stayed here and here} but a lot of you had some questions about how you’d go about booking a Maldivian honeymoon. It’s the kind of place where you really need a travel agent because it’s not an easy DIY trip like you could book in Europe for example. For a start when you land at Male the main airport you’re on an island so you need to be able to get to your hotel! I wanted to share all below, booking a honeymoon is probably one of the most special and memorable trips you’ll ever take and you’re likely to be spending out a lot of money so you want to make sure it’s 100% right. I hope I’ve managed to answer your most frequently asked questions below, there’s everything from how to get there, what to ask your travel agent when choosing an island to when to visit and how much you’ll have to spend…

I thought I’d ask the lovely team, and honeymoon experts, at Turquoise Holidays to help me give you some advice on booking a Maldivian honeymoon;

a beautiful rustic barn wedding in Staffordshire, with a hint of Harry Potter | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Merry Monday! Kirsty tried on over 100 dresses before she found her dream gown, which was made bespoke and my goodness, she looks gorgeous in it. What I love about Kirsty and Scott’s wedding is that they took everything they loved and put it all in to their day, for the people they love. There are so many fun and personal touches that make this such a fun and pretty wedding. And no wonder Kirsty couldn’t just choose one favourite moment, there are several touching images from their day. I hope you enjoy. I am always in favour of a wedding that has Harry Potter vibes!

A picture is worth a thousand words. So you need to get it right!

Guy Hearn

 

Picking a photographer is one of the more stressful decisions you have to make in terms of vendors. I think it’s really difficult to find someone who has a style that you like and that you can trust implicitly. I mean you have literally just met them and you are giving them one of the most important jobs within your wedding. I would say they are second only to the bride/groom or registrar/vicar (basically those doing the marrying and those getting married!) It is a huge responsibility for the photographer as they have to get the shots you want, plus those that perfectly capture your big day and they only have one chance! If they miss that special moment then it’s gone forever. How horrendous and stressful a job does that sound!? I definitely could not do it, that’s for sure.Read More

Honeymooning at Baros Maldives | UK Wedding Blog

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

The photo above shows the dreamy Baros Maldives where we spent the second part of last week. It’s a photo I can’t stop looking at, a heart shaped tropical island with the most incredible sea surrounding it. Having been voted the world’s most romantic resort, honeymooning there is pretty special. I actually spent my own honeymoon there back in 2014 {before I started working for SYGM} so I knew that you guys would love it. I was so excited to return, it had been such an incredible place but I also hoped it would be as good as we remembered. Would we potentially ruin our fond honeymoon memories? But I shouldn’t have worried, both trips will always be remembered and I think this time it was even better than the first.

a botanical urban cool editorial | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Morning! Oh my how we are in for a treat. Yesterdays editorial was whimsical, rustic countryside and now we have minimalist, romantic urban cool to oggle at. The team do a much better job at describing the overall feel for this look, but I have to say, I am a huge fan. It muddies somewhere between urban/minimal/Nordic to dark romantic/femininity. Love it. The florals really steal the show, but the use of simple, clean jumpsuits is genius. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

a beautiful rustic farm editorial | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

 

Afternoon! We have the wonderful Katie from A Vintage House that Could on the blog sharing images of her recent shoot in a beautiful derelict farm. The shoot contains beautiful ideas and detailing for a rustic country wedding with a little bit of a twist. I agree with Katie that table decor is really important, because that is where your guests will be sat for a large portion of the day. You needn’t spend a fortune on the details but it helps to give it a decent amount of thought. Can we say hello to that beautiful Sanderson fabric?!

an Isle of Skye elopement | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Good morning all, from the mountains of Slovenia yesterday, to a hand tying ceremony along the rugged coast of Skye today…who knows where we will be tomorrow? Hint. It is Yorkshire.

James and Leoni eloped to the Isle of Skye with just their two children and two friends, for a very intimate ceremony on the hillside. They followed the ceremony with a meal at The Three Chimneys. As you can imagine there aren’t many suppliers involved in an elopement, it seems quite tempting doesn’t it? And their whole day came in under £1000.
