Good morning beautiful reader, how was your weekend? We have a gorgeous wedding up this morning The warming orange tones are perfect for this time of year (unless we have another heat wave next week!) and I love the choice of dark bridesmaids dresses. Hollie and Dan leave some excellent advice for you brides to be so have a read and enjoy their day. I love Jonathan’s style of photography, he is always a welcome addition to the blog.

The speeches, everyone reminiscing the following morning at breakfast and the reception as you finally get to relax and let go.
You can’t please everyone. Make sure you make time for yourselves to enjoy it because it really does go in a matter of moments – you blink and it’s over. We liked the idea of trying to find independent companies as you get a more personal touch and the money actually helps them starting businesses etc rather than just big companies.
Also if we hadn’t seen or heard from people in the two years we were engaged they weren’t coming to the wedding – we didn’t want to look out to everyone at our wedding and look at a bunch of strangers , also if the other half hadn’t met them (in the 11 years we’d been together) then we didn’t invite them . We did a kids table and sat the parents on the tables backing on to them so they could meet each other during dinner so after dinner they went off to play and put the parents of the children with other parents they ended up taking it in turns to check on the kids so it gave them a chance to relax and enjoy the evening as well
Where did you find your inspiration?
We was engaged for 2 years before we got married, the first year we just looked online and chatted about what we wanted and when it came to booking it we had kind of got all our ideas together and then sourced things out online!
