Feathers are set to be a huge trend for 2015 and my favourite colour/feather combo is the peacock. The bright jewel tones of emerald green and peacock blue look stunning with wedding whites and ivories. There is loads of peacock-inspired wedding paraphernalia out there; here's a few of my favourites.
Happy new year! I hope you've all had a great Christmas break and a brilliant start to 2015. Perhaps you even got engaged? Christmas is a very romantic time of year and, traditionally, a time that sees lots of proposals. If you got engaged over the festive season then congratulations! Now that you've had a couple of weeks to get used to the idea you might be wondering what newly engaged couples should be doing? Read on for some advice on the most important things to do after saying yes...
The last blog post of 2014 is, fittingly, home to pictures from my last wedding of 2014! Abigail and Matt got married in the beautiful Bedfordshire village of Riseley - Abigail's home town - and had their marquee reception at Abi's parents' home.
Ah winter. A time for staying in, curling up in your warmest woolly jumper with a hot cuppa and a good book, in front of a roaring fire. And one of the best times of year to get married.
Winter weddings are awesome. That's a fact. But they do require some extra thought compared to holding your wedding in the summer. Read on for my top tips on how to make your winter wedding the best ever.
The nights are dark, the weather's cold and we've reached the point where I really start to care who gets voted out of Strictly each week - it's definitely winter, a time of year when we all need a little extra sparkle in our lives.

Goodness it's been a long time since I posted! I've been up to my eyes in work, kids and all sorts and it's nice to get back to the blog.
Today I'm featuring a wedding I planned in July this year. Alexa and Nick got in touch about a year ago to ask for help planning their rustic DIY wedding. Although Alexa was keen to do as much of the work herself as she possibly could, they were expecting their first baby in March and recognised that a newborn and wedding planning are not always the best companions!
I have to confess, although Autumn is my favourite season, Autumn weddings have never excited me as much as weddings held at other times of year. I'm just not that keen on orange. But this year there's been a definite move away from traditional autumnal oranges and rich russets towards a cooler palette. The rustic trend is still very big, but using muted greens and golds gives a much more delicate and pretty feel for Autumn. So, I have to say, I've really enjoyed putting together this mood board. I hope you like this new trend as much as I do.
Stephanie first contacted me in August 2013 about her May wedding and is one of the most organised brides I've ever worked for. She had very clear ideas about how she wanted her day to look but, equally, knew that she didn't want to spend hours on the day of the wedding setting it up herself. Stephanie and Luke had opted for an elegant, classic look, with lots of white and beautiful pastels in the flowers and bridesmaids dresses. It was a lot of work but a joy to set up such a pretty theme in a lovely venue.
We've been enjoying some glorious weather in the last few weeks and, according to those in the know, it's set to continue. Yay! However, for wedding guests the hot, sunny weather can be a bit of a problem. There's a lot of hanging around at weddings and most of it's done outside, which can lead to overheated and grumpy guests. Not something any bride and groom want at the reception!
So here are 5 ways to curry favour with your guests by keeping them cool.
