Honeymooning in Sri Lanka Part Two, Shangri La’s Hambantota Resort | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

Part Two of our trip to Sri Lanka. Don’t let the journey time to Shangri La Hambantota {around 4 to 4.5 hours} put you off, it’s an incredible journey & feels almost like a mini tour of Sri Lanka because there is SO much to see en route. Our journey started on the highway looking out over rice paddies and tropical palms. But then we got into the heart of the real Sri Lanka. The roadside fruit stalls, the fish sellers, cows wandering down the road, glimpses of paradise beaches, fishermen perched on stilts. The car is luxurious and there’s even free Wifi! By January though a new highway will have been built, reducing the journey time down to around 2 hours. Or you can fly direct into Hambantota airport with FlyDubai.Read More

As far as destination weddings go, wearing Grace Loves Lace on a gorgeous Greek Beach is definitely up there. Laura and Jan’s day looks as laid back as it gets, that green and white bouquet paired with the boho Grace Loves Lace dress looks like an utter dream, and effortlessly timeless. Jan looks exceptionally dapper in his suit and the whole day is something out of Pinterest. Love it!

The Skincare That Changed My Skin | UK Wedding Blog

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

Honeymooning in Sri Lanka, Part 1. Shangri La Hotel Colombo | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

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.

Saying Yes to the Dress

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?
