It’s got me feeling all fancy I have to say! You will see their designs are all timeless and ageless so they’re great investments pieces. I think they work equally well for bridesmaids, guests and mother-of-the-bride/groom. The designer behind Bombshell is Katya Wildman. She was a costume designer for television, so when she couldn’t find a dress suitable for her curves, she designed one… and so Bombshell HQ was born! “I wanted to…

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.

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…

Boat Shed Bride-to-Be!

Today we hear from popular singer Miss Amy Baker as she and fiance Sam prepare to tie the knot at The Boat Shed… over to Amy: Sam surprised me with a trip to London.

We took a leisurely walk around Regents Park and then hired a pedalo. Sam climbed onto the back of the boat and wobbled down onto one knee….
