Making Paper Flowers with Quill | UK WEDDING BLOG

Do you remember when we told you about Quill, the uber trendy stationery shop who also run modern calligraphy workshops? They’re always one step ahead of trends and in the past few months have launched brush lettering, neon ink courses and now paper flowers! {watch out for chalkboard writing masterclasses coming soon too}. I went along last Tuesday to the Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch for an evening of all things pretty in learning how to make these lifelike paper flowers. Whilst I think I love to be creative, when it comes down to it I’m all fingers and thumbs, covered in glue and just generally make a bit of a mess of things. So imagine my surprise when by the end of the evening, I had actually successfully made a paper peony that looked, well, peony like! If I can do it then anybody can. Grab a bunch of girlfriends and make an evening of it, a hen activity perhaps?

Headland House, Boutique B&B in Magical St Ives | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca


Back in 2012, on our first visit to Cornwall together, Ben and I stayed at Headland House in St Ives. We had a magical week of hot sunny weather and we ended up getting engaged on the trip! So Cornwall for me always feels extra special now and St Ives is probably one of my favourite places in the UK. When I knew I was going to be down in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago for The Scarlet and Chapel House, I couldn’t resist adding a night on in St Ives {if we had travelled all that way down that way it would be so rude not to} and of course the only place I wanted to stay was at Headland House. Three years on, sometimes you can remember places with a haze of nostalgia, being better than it was. But this time it exceeded expectations. The perfect place for an anniversary getaway or a mini-moon. Read More

my weekend edit #14 | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe


Evening all! Another cosy Sunday wrapped up on the sofa awaiting Downton Abbey. It has gotten a little rubbish but I still love it. The costumes, the venues, the politeness. This week has actually been very fun but I am not sure how much I should disclose on here in fear of judgement and a worrying phone call from my mother. Needless to say I have quaffed a lot of gin and been merry on many a school night. Thank you Anna.

Currently obsessed with Quiz Up, Aloe Vera juice, The White Company’s winter candle, velvet, Interstellar (late to the party, oh my god so good!!!) and trying to find the perfect iphone case. Which doesn’t exist. Read More

Wearable Autumn Makeup Ideas | UK Wedding Blog

With the first throws of Autumn officially upon us, it’s time to pull out the chunky knits, dig out the comfy quilted boots and invest in some autumnal makeup. In my humble opinion, it’s the time nails go darker,  lips go darker, and eyes go….well, darker.  You’ll be seeing plenty of A/W makeup collections already on sale, which invariably include some variant on berry hued lips, warm bronze-brown eye palettes and vampy oxblood nail varnish ( my favourite at the mo has to Chanel, for sure – they just do seasonal collections so well!) So with this in mind  I though I’d show you a couple of looks on my gorgeous model Bonnie which I think would be perfect for this season, however subtle or bold you fancy going, along with a few key products to help you get the look.Read More

Boudoir shoot with Julie Michaelsen featuring Pompadour Lingerie | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Afternoon! Pretty girl, pretty photography, pretty lingerie. What is not to love about this shoot? I am always a little hesitant when it comes to boudoir and I only publish what I feel is right for the blog. This is about showcasing the lingerie and Julie’s talent. Bridal lingerie for me is a tricky subject. I want to show those of you that want to see it, some of the pretty options you can wear with your dress, or the night of, but I also want to express that really, it doesn’t matter what you wear and peeling yourself out of beige Spanx at 1am is perfectly OK too.
