We are on the move!

I have enjoyed blogging more than I imagined and whilst I was proud that I built this blog all by myself, I was just ever so slightly envious of the others that looked a little slicker.

It has been a lot of hard work and a BIG thank you to Boho Groom for his patience with my slight OCD.  I am thrilled with the result, so go and check it out and let me know what you think!

Get tickets this weekend!

With only one week to go, do think about coming along to 'The Wedding Sanctuary' on Sunday 20th March.

The Wedding Sanctuary is an innovative wedding show designed to offer top design inspiration, personal style advice and the best 'one on one' planning support available. It was conceived by wedding planners of the UKAWP and will be hosted at the prestigious Somerset House.

Top names in the industry such as Julia Boggio Photography, Amanda Austin Flowers, Sternberg Clarke and Gorgeous Film Productions will be paired with the fabulous wedding planners who make up the UKAWP, to offer top tips and the opportunity to ask specific questions regarding every element of your wedding day. The Alliance will also be offering a range of talks addressing the trickier issues when planning your wedding like how to set and stick to a budget, and how to get the best from your suppliers. You will also be able to have a personal tour of the sumptuous Somerset House and enjoy the splendid views and facilities on offer.


You will be invited to sip champagne and nibble delicious canap├ęs courtesy of renowned event caterers Table Talk whilst browsing the inspiration zone for design ideas. 5 stunning dining tables will be styled by wedding planners of the UKAWP alongside Zoe Clark Cakes and Cutture Stationery, displaying the very best of what is available to hire for your wedding reception, with pricing guidelines and practical information included.


Brides in need of style advice can meet in the boudoir where the likes of Sassi Holford and Emmy Shoes can dress you from head to toe whilst hair and make-up expert Elle au Naturel and top personal stylist Katrina Choat offer consultations on how to look and feel your absolute best on the day.



I was delighted to be asked to style the boudoir with Vintage Style Hire http://www.vintagestylehire.co.uk/  A great opportunity for me to show you some of my vintage pieces to hire for your wedding.
