Sperry Tent Autumn Wedding Styling – A Season of Colour (Part 1)

I have such a love affair with Autumn, or Fall as our Stateside cousins call it. Perhaps it’s because I’m most at home in the natural surroundings of the countryside –  rolling hills with views for miles, acres of lush forest land, historical country houses, verdant vineyards and rustic barns, these are the places where […]

Introducing the Garden Life Collection by Andrea Bambridge of York

It snowed this morning! SNOWED! I caught the whole brief, light smattering on my Instagram Stories if you’d care to take a look, but it really, really snowed. I was already feeling uncharacteristically festive quite early this year, but that’s sealed it for me. I now desperately want our tree up (though finding one whose […]

From The Heart: Am I going bridal mad?

Yesterday I agreed with myself that I’d have a night off from wedding planning. Not a client wedding this time, I’m talking about my very own big day. Yikes. I sat down in front of the TV with my fiancé last night, laptop balanced on my knee pretending to peruse shots of K.Mid’s new blowdry; […]

We’ve not made a big song and dance about it over here at @lovemydress because we always intended the time up until January to be our ‘beta’ testing period, but we have to celebrate this evening because of the amazing response in the 5 days since we launched.

  • “The first thing I bought was my wedding shoes from Terry de Havilland, they are gold platforms with gold lightning bolts down the side. They are very Studio 54 so from there I decided I wanted the wedding to be gold, glitzy and glam and Mark was happy to go along with this. I knew I wanted something unusual but I also gave myself a tight budget as I didn’t want all the wedding money to be blown on my dress. As soon as I saw the @frockandfrill dress I knew it was the one. I absolutely loved the pops of colour and I knew it would go with my shoes.
.
I also wanted something comfortable and not restrictive. As it’s floor length with long sleeves I decided on having an evening dress too, so I could dance with abandon and not get too hot. I bought a pink chiffon, embellished, evening dress from @asos and had it taken up by local dress makers, Thimbelinas, as it was a bit too long for dancing. They did an amazing job.”

  • “Try to enjoy it all.  It will be stressful at times but remember that at the end of it you will have an amazing day that is just to celebrate you two and your love so try not to get hung up on the little things. As long as there is good food, lots of drinks and good music you will have an amazing time!”

  • “I went to a few ‘traditional’ dress shops and whist there were some beautiful dresses, nothing really grabbed me. I happened to see the stall for @thecoutureco at the @allaboutewe wedding show and loved their quirkiness. I met with Jo and the team and absolutely fell in love with their style and the fact that my dress would be completely unique. Jo totally understood what I was looking for and every time I went for a fitting, I fell more in love with my dress. I felt like an absolute rock star.”

  • “I loved my dress and it really suited both me and the London venue. I wanted to wear a dress I felt special in but I also wanted to be able to dance a ceilidh wearing it! It was classic but with a modern twist, and the silk and lace were beautiful. It fitted me perfectly thanks to Gina’s alterations.”

  • “People kept asking me if I was stressed and I really wasn’t.  I can see how easy it is for the wedding prep to take over but its more fun to remain calm.  At the end of the day you are marrying the person you love so who really cares if the seating plan isn’t perfect, or little things go wrong? One thing I really accepted was my dress was going to get filthy, but it is true, the dirtier the dress, the more fun had at the wedding!”

Excellent #wordsofweddedwisdom Nat, thank you! Nat’s wedding is on the blog today - she wears separates by @watters and the wonderful @emma_epiclovestory took her photographs. Pop on over to the blog to see more.

  • “We were looking for photographers with a distinctive style and a modern, playful take on traditional, documentary style wedding photography. We came across Paul and Kelly and we knew their style was the one for us. Photography was always going to be an investment and they exceeded our expectations in every way. They really get involved and made everyone feel at ease – when they said goodbye at the end of the night it felt like saying bye to friend. We also had an engagement shoot which really helped put us at ease. We would definitely recommend Paul and Kelly to couples looking for fun, awesome photographers who’ll really help capture the best of your day.”
