Sunday Summary: Loving the Bhangra Beat

24 Jun

Welcome to Sunday all!

Today we’re attempting to keep our feet up after being on them for pretty much most of the week. The only thing we might manage is to watch the footie a bit later with a few Sunday glasses of vino (if we’re still awake by then!).

We start the post with a big congratulations to Vijay and Leanne who we worked with yesterday at their Asian Fusion wedding. It was simply stunning. The very lovely bride and groom looked gorgeous, the indian food was superb and the views from Nettlestead Place over the Kent countryside were made all the better by some summer sunshine and very happy guests. The pics here are just a little glimpse into the day which we’ll be sharing in much more detail over the coming weeks.

We were lucky enough to work with some great suppliers on the day including Chic Weddings, N Photography and Dream Days for You (we have a Fantastic Find feature on them later this week).

So just before we look forward to another week in wedding world here’s our summary of blog posts from the past 7 days. We kicked off with designer Stephanie Allin’s beautiful range of wedding dresses and her new collection which will be in store around September. Next we gave you some advice about how to set your wedding budget in our post Counting the Cost. If you have any good budgeting tips then we’d love to share them.

Then the Flower Preservation House showed us how you can preserve your wedding flowers into beautiful keepsakes of your day. Next we were really pleased to share the real Kent wedding of Keeley and Mike at Cooling Castle Barn with photography by Fleur Challis. The vibrant colour scheme and stunning backdrop make this a wedding worth taking inspiration from.We rounded the week of with news of a discount at Myla with up to 50% off some of their bridal lingerie range.

See you next week for more real wedding inspiration, a gorgeous vintage photoshoot and our weekly Fantastic Find.

Come on England!

Wrap up a Winter Wedding

3 Feb

BBrrr as the temperature drops, if you are getting married in the next month or two, you’re probably worrying about how to stay warm, but not look like you’re about to ski down the black run. Well worry not, as we’ve got a selection of winter warmers for your delight from Wonderful Wraps, who have a fantastic range to suit all wedding styles.

To go all out in the keeping toastie stakes then you will almost certainly need to have a wrap or cape.

Marabou Bolero, comes in ivory and black (as shown). £115

Faux Fur Wrap, £139

Velvet Cloak with Fur Hood and Train, £599.

Wedding Faux Fur Muff, £40

The wedding muff may feel like an accessory too far for you as a bride, but they do look fantastic on bridesmaids, who can have one instead of a bouquet, and it will stop them from getting freezing when standing around waiting to be photographed.

We spoke to Katie Diamond from Wonderful Wraps who says “Normal postage times are 3-5 days but if an item is not in stock you will be emailed immediately and notified of the new delivery date. The Wonderful Wraps cloak is bespoke and so will take around 6 weeks, however in some cases we can reduce this, as our wedding range is made here in England. Customer service is paramount to us so we are on hand to offer friendly advice and help with every order”.

Spring 2012 will see the release of three new on-trend pieces as part of their wedding collection so keep an eye on their blog to find out more.
