  • “We absolutely love our wedding photos from the amazingly talented @dominiquebaderphotography. Photography was one of our top priorities and we both had an endless list of criteria and we thought it would be impossible for one person to meet that. I saw Dominique’s work on another Love My Dress wedding and loved her style instantly. We got in touch with her before we even had a date or a venue booked and made sure she was free and knew straight away that we didn’t need to speak to anyone else.”

  • How gorgeous is this beautiful eco-wedding dress from designer @sanyuktashrestha? Sanyukta specialises in creating ethically produced bridal gowns and we love her for it. Her commitment to supporting fair trade silk production communities in Nepal that provide well paid employment women is so inspiring.

  • Brides, if you want an experience to remember, where you are treated with respect and made to feel beautiful and glamorous like you never have before, where you can talk honestly about any body hangups you might have or bits you want to accentuate, you must must must visit the wonderful @halfpennylondon.
My adoration for Kate Halfpenny knows no bounds. She is a shining beacon of British bridal fashion design who cares deeply and passionately about making all her brides feel their most gorgeous ever on their wedding day. Do yourselves a favour and book an appointment at her London atelier or see any one of her UK based stockists to try on one of her gowns.

  • Sundays are for lazing around and catching up on idea and plans for the week ahead. The Perfect day then to take a stroll through the @prezola website to see what goodies they have that can be added to your wedding gift list.
There are many reasons I love working with and recommending this gift list company:
⭐️ It's family run by a real life married couple who really care about the customer experience (you can follow them at @prezoladom and @aliprezola).
⭐️ They work super hard to create relationships with brands I love, so the product and experiences you can add to your wedding gift list through Prezola is extensive and exciting to browse through. This year, they teamed up with @sohohome and I pretty much want to own everything they sell!
⭐️ They have a great team with a great work/customer service ethic - in fact is really is the top of their priorities that all their customers have an excellent experience.
⭐️ They package all their products in eco-friendly, recyclable packaging.
⭐️ They have a series of really helpful and informative articles on their site that assist those considering a wedding list and no idea where to start, right through to how to create a gallery wall at home and interviews with real couples who used their services.
⭐️ And, they're just a flipping lovely bunch. And doesn't it make a whacking great difference when you're dealing with nice people?
FORGET the traditional gift list concept, this is brilliant, modern way of enabling your guests to contribute or part contribute towards something lovely for your married life. Be it a beautiful item to add to your home, a honeymoon experience or charity donation. Bookmark the Prezola website if you are planning a wedding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Swipe to see a few of my current favourite Prezola things. I’m all about creating cool and comfortable spaces in my home right now 😊

  • My book, Style Me Vintage Weddings, is five years old this year but the styling inside is as beautiful and relevant today as it was back then because it is utterly timeless. The brilliant @lipstickandcurlsltd founder Amanda, was our resident beauty expert and makeup artist for my book shoot. I've attached three of my favourite looks from my book here and adore how Amanda has styled each of them (the first image was inspired by the looks of the 1950s, the second image by the 1930s and the third and final image by the 1960s) 💋💄
Lipstick and Curls specialise in bridal makeup and hair and have stylists located all over the UK. You should probably contact them if you need to book your own makeup artist (or hair stylist). Hair on this occasion was by none other than the equally superb Severin Hubert of @hepburncollection.
Art Direction by myself.
