With just over a week to go, it is easy to feel like you’re weaving a very complicated french plait. But actually, we are feeling pretty organised! Confetti and cones – check. Favours – check. Getaway car decs – check. So I thought I’d share with you how I’m putting together a little photo booth for the reception.

Hello all! Just a quick update from me. I have taken July off from wedding blogging, I have a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment and I wanted to step away (I am still accepting submissions and replying to emails so please get in touch!). I will be back here on August 1st with some amazing real weddings and editorials (hello above image). I have also started to take the blog in a different direction stylistically so I hope this shows in the weddings I have selected moving forward.

In the meantime, I am being an absolute demon on instagram so follow on there, it will also give you an idea of the new vibe I am trying to create for SYGM. You can also keep up to date with my personal life via my lifestyle blog Simply Weekend.

I will see you back here in a few weeks!

Gertrude Jekyll once said that ‘a garden teaches industry and thrift’ and I think she was right. Being a wannabe plantswoman and garden maven, I worried that a florist might not be able to emulate my taste in informal, blousey, Derbyshire cottage garden flowers.

Good morning all! Something for a little hint/suggestion you may want to send your other half, have you ever thought about a helicopter proposal? If you are a long time reader, or follow my personal blog Simply Weekend, you’ll know that getting in a helicopter is a no go for me but one of my friends was proposed to after a helicopter ride and she said it was the most exciting day of her life. It is something I would never had written about if High Flying Helicopter hadn’t got in contact, they also include an image from a recent proposal.

Jo Loves Fragrance and Candle Experience | UK Wedding Blog

Whilst I was away on holiday, I read the very inspiring autobiography of Jo Malone and knew as soon as I finished it I needed to experience her new brand Jo Loves for myself – a brand she has lovingly crafted post-JML for the last 6 years, with an idea to turn fragrance into an indulgent and interactive experience, and into a journey to discover something super unique. I was lucky enough to be invited to try two experiences – fragrance tapas and shot candle making, Read More

Hello! I hope you enjoyed reading up on our recent trip to Le Palais Paysan here. Isn’t it beautiful – anyone considering it? Luckily for us, we teamed up with Front Row while we were out there, a luxury online platform where you can rent designer brands for a fraction of the retail price. What a great idea, if you want to wear high end pieces on your honeymoon to make you feel and look a million dollars – literally!
