We have discussed money and finances several times on the blog. It’s the one topic that comes up the most when discussing wedding planning because budgeting can be hard, and individuals usually have different ideas where the money would be best allocated (I wanted a million flowers, he wanted amazing food). Money can impact a relationship from the beginning and Shepherds Friendly have provided a helpful infographic on the subject, and how other couples handle their finances, money doesn’t buy love but according to their research it buys security.  Read More

F&L: The B Word | UK Wedding Blog

By Laura

No, it doesn’t stand for ‘Bloody hell, will she ever stop going on about weddings?’. Today’s post is all about the dreaded wedding budget. Nobody likes talking about money, and I’m not about to tell you what you should and shouldn’t spend money on when it comes to your wedding. I personally feel it is totally and utterly subjective; if you want to spend £50k on your wedding and you have the means to do so then go wild, equally, if you need to tighten the purse strings a little then that is ok too.

Being My Own Florist

My husband is obsessed with all things green – in the summer you’ll find him on our allotment or at the back of our garden planting up seedlings. Our front porch is pretty much a greenhouse, so during warmer months is full of tomato plants. It was really important to me that our wedding featured a lot of greenery not only to represent a huge part of our lives but also to offset the grey’s and gold’s in the decor. I did look at having a floristry company curate what I wanted but it just didn’t come anywhere near our budget. It became quickly apparent that I needed to work out a way to do them myself. Luckily a close friend had done the same and introduced me to a local wholesalers only 25 minutes from my house.

Our Wedding – 4th October 2018

This last month has gone by in a complete whirlwind. It doesn’t even feel real now looking back thinking we had a wedding day & have been on honeymoon all in the space of 3 weeks.

Now it’s passed and I have my preview pictures back from my amazing photographer I thought I’d share them.
