The Nostalgia Show… for a Hen do?

May 27, 2021 | Glamping, Hen Party

This is a quick one as I need to wrap up work and prepare myself for half term away in Cornwall. And shock horror the weather forecast looks good! This means I need to go into crisis mode with fake tan, nail varnish and trying on my whole summer wardrobe in the vain hope something might still fit… And talking of good weather and good times, it’s The Nostalgia Show next month. How can I shoehorn this onto a wedding blog? I know… gather your pals and make a weekend of it for a hen/stag do? Or a hen/stag do…

Italian Styled Shoot – Nature with a hint of retro Bohemia

Today we hand over to our friends, a group of wedding professionals in Italy, to talk us through one of their recent styled shoots. We love how they’ve utilised the natural environment while creating a thoroughly modern look… The Italian landscape offers a gift of a wild and true nature. Passing through hills covered by centuries-old olive trees we reached this big cane thicket. Here the light of the sun, filtered by the reeds, created geometric slices of light and a warm and golden atmosphere. The space seems to form a large container that both protects and divides. While the…

Dolly Alderton Talks Weddings in Sunday Times Style

May 6, 2021 | Love, Marriage, Party, Wedding

I always get the Sunday Times and it usually takes me the whole week to work my way through the supplements. A couple of weeks ago they featured I Do! The Cool Bride Guide in The Sunday Times style. I really enjoyed Dolly Alderton‘s piece and wanted to share some snippets with you because her writing is just so evocative… and I think we all need to be transported back to BC weddings, even if only in a literary sense for now. Nothing represents the freedom of life before Covid more than a wedding: train journeys, tightly packed churches, hundreds…

World Earth Day – Sustainable Wedding Workshops

Did you know it’s World Earth Day today? It’s an annual event that demonstrates global support for environmental protection.

Dream Wedding Venue – The Boat Shed

Sometimes I think The Boat Shed project was all a dream. Did I dream about a unique waterside space filled with trestle tables, festoon lighting and flowers? It seemed so real; the taste of cold fizz, the servings of street food, the sound of the band rehearsing… Was my whole career a figment of my imagination? I think I might be going slightly mad. Is anyone else going slightly mad?   As it stands our first wedding is the end of June next year. It seems soooo long away but BRING IT ON. I’ve had my hair cut now, and…
