Alice In Wonderland Wedding: Queen Of Hearts Inspiration Board

Alice In Wonderland Wedding: Queen Of Hearts Inspiration Board

This morning, although bleary-eyed and washed out from being woken up by my 3 year old girly three times in the night, I was excited!  I have wanted to start our Alice In Wonderland Inspiration Boards for -ever!  And guess what Chickadees… I have the first one ready to go!  I have trawled the internet for quality inspiration and ideas to help you build a red and white/black wedding theme and based it on Alice In Wonderland’s very special Queen Of Hearts.

So here it is, our first Alice In Wonderland Inspiration Board, dedicated to the Queen of Hearts.  As wickedly wonderful as she is, she adores red, hearts, checks, black and white and champagne, she is cheeky, confident and and oozes timeless appeal. Read More »

The Bridal Party photo of the year: Magical moments 2011 | bridal party photography

This has to be my favourite photo of a Bridal party taken by Making The Moment Photography.  Uber cool.  {I know, it’s such a 90′s saying but I love it}.

A warm and fuzzy HAPPY NEW YEAR to you.  May 2012 be frabjous in so many ways!

As Lewiss Carroll so rightly put it:

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat. Read More »

Think Lawrence of Arabia meets an Officer And A Gentleman.  That’s the impact this wedding had on me and by the end of their cinematic wedding trailer (below) my eyes were filled with tears.  This unique wedding is packed full of alternative, non-traditional details from the sunset vows in the sands of the desert to the beautiful dress Sacha wore.  This is a stunning example of just how to make your wedding, your story!

Wedding Venue in Yorkshire: Ox Pasture Hall Country House

Wedding Venue in Yorkshire: Ox Pasture Hall Country House

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 »

Getting creative with your wedding chairs

Getting creative with your wedding chairs

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. You can see my chair obsession on Pinterest (check out the black and white striped one). So what about wedding chairs? What do you do with them? 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 »

Wedding videography by Shoot-It-Yourself

Wedding videography by Shoot-It-Yourself

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.

Breaking tradition with your wedding style: using black {a real wedding}

Breaking tradition with your wedding style: using black {a real wedding}

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.
