Hello! Well it looks like we’ve seen the last of Summer and it’s time to start lighting those candles and get cosy again. You might have seen on our Instagram page that it was Afternoon Tea week from the 14th-20th August which sadly I couldn’t go to because I happened to be in Barcelona. The good news is, I got engaged while I was there and I’ll be filling the blog with my wedding journey so please do follow along! Thankfully, The Bingham in Richmond offered the opportunity to go and experience their Afternoon Tea once I got back and boy did it tick all the boxes.
Morning! We are starting off the day with a topic that isn’t often discussed on blogs even though it is one of the main driving factors when planning your wedding. Of course you could take a handful of people are elope, that is always an option but if you want a larger wedding then budgeting can be really hard, especially as you start to discover the hidden costs surrounding weddings. It’s not all doom and gloom and you can have the wedding you want. Also look at our ‘under 10k‘ category for some real wedding inspiration.
Morning! How have you been?! We finally have a load of pretty weddings going up on the blog. I took a little time out but I am back now and ready to wedding the hell out of this blog, but excitingly we return with a little treat for you. Not only looking at some beautiful stationery, you can win money towards your own too. Wedding thank you cards are an important part of post wedding planning, a lot of guests have travelled far, wide and spent their time and money celebrating with you. A little thank you is all it takes to make them feel cherished. Read More
Oh my gosh, going through the photos to create this blog post was almost like re-experiencing our whole wedding day again!
On Saturday 19th May 2018, we got married! A day that we shared with the royal couple. To be honest, it was a joy to share with them, as now our wedding day will always be a memorable day in history! We have been married over 3 months now and people keep asking us ‘how is married life treating you?’ Well, what a feeling it is to promise your heart to someone and day by day after the wedding build a married life full of even more love and laughter!Read More
Good afternoon! So I get to do some wonderful things for work, but getting free wine I can share with my friends is definitely one of my favourites. Whilst my tipple of choice in a bar is gin, I love a red wine at home. I am a little fussy with my wines and will always choose the same type so when a huge box arrived of rose, red and white I was a little taken aback with where to start. Thankfully the box comes with all the information you could possibly need about each wine and felt exceptionally taken care of, so how do you get a magical wine box? Le Petit Ballon is your answer. And you can get one every month. For you, or your favourite couple. Read More
After 1 year, 6 months and 28 days of being engaged, Harry and I got married on 21st July! It was easily the best day of my life, but I say this with caution as, of course, not everything went perfectly. In what will probably be my penultimate blog post, I wanted to share with you some things I’ve learnt, which I hope might be helpful to any brides-to-be reading this. FYI, this is a warts-and-all kind of post: I aim to be honest and open with all of my blog posts, as I don’t want to set unrealistic expectations by giving a curated version of my experiences.
Hello! Oh my goodness, I have been so so excited to share these images from the most amazing experience I had a few weeks ago. Dineindulge got in contact with me and asked if I would like to have a private chef come and cook for me and some friends. The answer to that was always going to be a yes wasn’t it?
We moved house in February but hadn’t really had a dinner party yet but it was something I had wanted to organise, the weather had been glorious and whilst I hadn’t bought garden furniture yet we managed to move the dining table outside and set up the most beautiful midsummer night dream feel. Now, the food…
Good morning lovely readers! Hasn’t it been the most glorious summer so far? I hope all you July brides have had the most perfect weddings and for the August brides – not long to go now! I’m back today with another wedding venue just minutes away from the Buckinghamshire/Berkshire border called Stoke Place. It is a beautiful 17th Century mansion set across 26 acres of land with 39 bedrooms for you and your guests to make use of if you would like. We got asked a couple of months ago if we would like to stay for the night and have dinner in their in house restaurant The King & Lamb so of course we just couldn’t say no – someone’s got to do the research haven’t they?!
Morning all. I hope you had a lovely weekend, the sun shone brightly over Yorkshire for the majority, we had a BBQ with friends (which did actually get rained off) then lounged in the sun, on the sofa and on the bed catching up on TV and podcasts, it was the relaxing weekend we needed. I am now fully back to work so expect a lot more real weddings and blog posts on here, I hope you can forgive me for stream lining how much content has been up recently. Todays post is a collaboration with One4all, this is the first post to introduce you to the brand, the second post will give you the chance to win a gift card to spend with them (or gift to someone for their wedding?!).

It’s less than 2 weeks to go until our wedding, but today I wanted to talk about hen dos. I’m using the plural, because I ended up having 3! I’m not saying I’m milking this wedding, but to any brides-to-be reading this, my advice would be to take the opportunities to celebrate when they present themselves!
