Choosing a wedding venue has to do with so much more than just locality in my opinion; it most importantly MUST suit the mood you’re trying to create for your wedding, be it alternative, funky, relaxed or retro. That’s the first MUST. Then theres a few more: It has to be the right size and it must compliment the two of you. There’s no point in booking a venue just because it’s close or has enough bedrooms for the guests. Rather, think of your wedding venue as an extension of your theme… this way, you’ll choose with all the right ideas in mind.
And if you live in Yorkshire, you have your pick of a ton of beautiful estates, stunning hotels and breathtaking landmarks and I’ve got a gorgeous one for you today… Ox Pasture Hall Country House Hotel… Read More »

Chairs, chairs, chairs. They’re an addiction of mine and if I had my very own way (I’m working on it :-)) I would have a house full of non-matching chairs.

Do you decorate or save your budget for something else. And what about a lounge area? Have you thought of creating a funky area for your guests to lounge about? Read More »

I am a bit of a Dragon’s Den fan. I love seeing success stories of the’ little people’ (not giant corporate take-overs) as it’s their hard work, tenacity and motivation that is so inspiring. And I have to admit I do love couch-moaning at Theo, Duncan and Deborah whenever they carry on! Sometimes they can be so judge mental and insensitive in their responses to these wonderfully, innocent people who come into the Den with their dreams.
However, Hillary, the new female Dragon on the show seems to be more passionate and sensitive. She’s the quiet but but no-less powerful dragon: a go-getter, someone who once determined, doesn’t stop. I remember one show where she joined forces with two uber-talented ladies with a video camera.
Shoot-It-Yourself is the brainchild of Andrea and Becs: two creative TV Directors who saw a gap in the wedding market. Their genius idea means that you get to hire the cameras to do your own style of ‘reality TV’ type filming and then they use their expert editing capabilities to turn it all into one extremely exciting, emotional and enchanting story of your wedding day.

I salute any Bride who is courageous enough to think outside the box when it comes to the wedding dress; it’s a tough decision when you’ve probably been imagining the fairytale since you were young with a white Cinderalla Dress. However these days the wedding dress is even more of a statement than it used to be. Think red, or soft pink or light blue, and black! Even a mix of colours like white and red or black and white, like Alison did for her wedding dress below. Her dress was black lace and ivory and she made it even more spectacular by adding red crystal shoes. Read More »
