Oh an exquisite wedding on the blog this morning. It is a fantastically classic, stylish day set in a neighbours back garden. Beautiful roses in the bouquet, fantastic ties for the boys and lots of nods to British heritage.

Good morning to you! Today we have a gorgeous boho bride editorial styled by a wonderfully creative group of Yorkshire ladies. Floral crowns are synonymous with the boho look, and this flower headpiece is a beauty. Cold shoulder dresses are still popular and slowly making their way in to bridal for SS18. I hope you enjoy.

Hiring a wedding DJ with UK Mobile Discos | uk wedding blog

Afternoon all! I don’t usually blog infographics, but this has so much great content about hiring a DJ that I thought this wasn’t one to pass up. It is a topic, as I have stated before, that I really struggled with when planning. Choosing a DJ or band, or both can be hard, then you need to decide on the music. Get it right and people will be dancing all night, get it wrong and well…argh! I know a lot of couples are happy popping on their ipod for the evening (there is nothing wrong with that!) but I know some of you want a little more for the evening event, this is where hiring a wedding DJ comes in to it.

We have images of what our wedding evening will look like (mine is the above image) surrounded by all our loved ones, tonnes of confetti and splashing gin as we go but you need to make sure you get the atmosphere right. A good DJ will do that, and worth every penny spent for those awesome memories.

With just over a week to go, it is easy to feel like you’re weaving a very complicated french plait. But actually, we are feeling pretty organised! Confetti and cones – check. Favours – check. Getaway car decs – check. So I thought I’d share with you how I’m putting together a little photo booth for the reception.

Hello all! Just a quick update from me. I have taken July off from wedding blogging, I have a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment and I wanted to step away (I am still accepting submissions and replying to emails so please get in touch!). I will be back here on August 1st with some amazing real weddings and editorials (hello above image). I have also started to take the blog in a different direction stylistically so I hope this shows in the weddings I have selected moving forward.

In the meantime, I am being an absolute demon on instagram so follow on there, it will also give you an idea of the new vibe I am trying to create for SYGM. You can also keep up to date with my personal life via my lifestyle blog Simply Weekend.

I will see you back here in a few weeks!
