Lisa Pascoe – On Love

Lisa Pascoe is a qualified NLP Master Practitioner with over five years’ experience, and is the host of Bravehearts Rising, a podcast for deep feelers, dreamers and empaths. As Lisa prepares to marry Bekky (very soon!) we asked her to contribute a piece on LOVE. Over to Lisa… While I loved the Little Mermaid as a child, I never grew up wanting the fairy tale romance. I didn’t dream of a big wedding and never wanted to be rescued. What I did crave, however, was marriage, Marks and Spencers and a mortgage. It sounds funny now but as an only…

Sophie & Nick’s Midsummer Feastival

What a beauty we have for you today! Sophie and Nick perfectly mixed rustic farm vibes with lavish, indulgent treats for their guests. Over to the happy couple to tell you more… Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. When it came to the style of our wedding, we were led first of all by the date.

My Best Friend’s Wedding

On Sunday I returned from the most amazing wedding in France. To say it was the best day of my life wouldn’t be fair on my son but it was pretty damn close! It was Lou and Ryan’s wedding. Lou and I have been friends for twenty years, we met when we moved in together on the first day of uni in 1999. Despite her moving out to the Alps soon after we graduated we’ve remained the best of friends and have had some amazing experiences together. Lou and her brother ran a bar in Val D’Isere for many years…

Weddings that Stand the Test of Time

July 30, 2019 | Love, Marriage, News, Photography, real wedding

I’ve wanted to write this post for a while because it’s something I feel quite passionately about. I’ve run this wedding business for ten years and even before that I was involved with weddings in some form or another. I worked in the function room at Hampton Court Palace when I was 18 and then, in later life, I worked for event companies; one company specialised in Moroccan-themed events and the other, hen and stag weekends all over the world. The reason I’m telling you this is because I feel like I’ve seen it all when it comes to weddings….
