How to Protect Yourself Against the Myths of Common Law Marriage | uk wedding blog

Once you and your partner have lived together for a given number of years, the law recognises your arrangement as a “Common Law” marriage, entitling you to the same (or at least very similar) rights as an officially married couple.

At least, that’s what around half of the British public believe, despite it being completely untrue.

I adore the colour palette in this, Charlotte from Redamancy has such a good eye for the detailing. I really hope you love this editorial as much as I do.

Meet The Bliglens, Georgina & Stephen

engagement, first anniversary


On December 10th 2005 I went on a first date with a friend of a friend. I instantly felt at home in his company and nestled into his shoulder for the entire movie without even thinking about it. Fast forward a lot of life events and far less fresh faces. 11 years later in June 2017 we took a holiday with two of our best friends to Greece. Little did I know that guy I met all those years before had something a little sparkly up his sleeve (or sewn into his backpack). On a sunset cruise on the second night he dropped to one knee and asked me to be his wife. After a little bit of ‘are you serious?’ – I said yes!
