I was set to write a post on skincare advice, but although being a makeup artist and certified product junkie means I know more than most, I certainly don’t feel in a position to pretend I’m an authority on the subject. That being said, most women I talk to are hopelessly lost on the skincare front,Read More
Oh Sri Lanka. A magical, varied, chaotic island in the Indian Ocean. An island covered in palm trees, home to temples, national parks, elephants & leopards, tuk tuks and tea plantations. It’s a perfect honeymoon spot, combining beaches with adventure, culture & delicious food. An ideal spot in it’s own right or you could combine with The Maldives. We split our week’s stay into two parts; the first couple of nights at Shangri La Hotel Colombo. A brand new property in the capital.
Beautiful photography, a gorgeous couple and happy smiling friends and family. Everything you need for a wonderful day right? Wrong. You also need beautiful florals and a stunning venue. Thankfully dear reader, this wedding has it all, Ian and Helen’s wedding is a muted pastel perfect elegant day and I love it.
Dear Toni, are you possibly the most gorgeous bride ever?! That dress and bouquet are utter heaven. (Nathan you scrub up well too). The whole day is glorious, so many elements of pretty DIY, excellent confetti shots and followed by a honeymoon in Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Oh yes please!
Despite writing about getting back into the swing of wedding planning at the beginning of the year I hit a block – a big white block that is the wedding dress. According to the apps and planners I own I should of technically started searching for my dream dress back in November but I’ve been putting it off. I booked some appointments in January for March 3rd with the genuine intention of just ‘getting it over with.’ I follow hundreds of beautiful dress designers on Instagram and I’ve watched Monty jack up brides countless times on Say Yes To The Dress but I just wasn’t thrilled about finding my ‘the one’.
Hello all! Back to blogging gorgeous weddings, starting off with this cute one from the cotswolds, for under £10k. All suppliers involved are now at the end of the post and I am toying with the idea of shifting real weddings to mini posts on the SYGM instagram too. Will look in to it, blogging is changing and I not sure which way to go with it all at the moment. The blog of course will remain but I feel we need to shift our focus a little bit. Do you still read blogs or mainly instagram?
Good Morning! Spring is fast approaching (thank goodness!) and I’m sure all of you March/April brides out there are getting really excited that the big day is nearly here! Hopefully you remember Phoebe’s post back in January about the honeymoon gift list service that Buy Our Honeymoon offer. Well, the team at Buy Our Honeymoon have been kind enough to let me have a play with their service and build my own list – and trust me, it is super easy!Read More
Planning a wedding, I am learning, is a massive lesson in compromise. There are so many amazing things we would like to do, and we’re trying to balance that out with not blowing all the money in our savings account. DIY is a good money saving technique, which is a great idea in theory, but less so in reality when you’re as creatively limited as Harry and I!
Luckily for us, we are blessed to know some extremely talented people who have been so lovely in offering us their time and expertise. Hurray for generous friends and family!
Hello! I hope you’ve had a great week and are back into the swing of wedding planning now that the snow has all gone! So often we focus on the dress, the shoes, the bridal accessories but what about our lovely men?! Of course, we want to feel a million dollars on our big day but we want our hubbies to look just as dapper in their suits. House of Cavani, a brand who specialises in Italian Style Menswear, have the most incredible selection of suits so that the groom and his men can find the perfect fit for that all-important day.
