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; […]

  • “I guess we had a botanical themed wedding as I was inspired by magazines like ‘Elle Decoration’ and ‘World of Interiors’ and the lovely @urbanjungleblog. I used to work at House of Hackney and have been obsessed with their Palmeral print ever since. We wanted everything to look very fresh and spring-like, so there was lots of greenery and a few splashes of yellow. In an ideal world we would have held our wedding in a conservatory or palm house, but at the end of the day keeping to a reasonable budget was just way more important to us so this was our way of incorporating that vibe.”

  • ⚡️FETCH YOUR DIARES⚡️Where is this year going? 🤷🏼‍♀️⏱Time is whizzing by so fast, and it’s time to get organised and get those dates in your diary for 2018 - starting out with the @mostcuriouswed fair, which takes place between 2nd and 4th March at The Old Truman Brewery in London.

We can’t want to attend this excellent wedding event which attracts some of the best, most creative suppliers in Britain. The past few events have pushed boundaries when it comes to experiential, cool, trend driven events. This really is a show we’re most proud to be involved with and get behind 100%. AND ITS SO MUCH FUN 👊 We’ll be there next March, will you? #lmdmostcurious.

  • “My vision was a traditional old style village wedding. I wanted it to feel like guests had come to a traditional village wedding that was organic and natural and full of country florals with an ethereal twist. I didn’t want to have a specific colour theme for the wedding but I am a very keen gardener and I’m obsessed with flowers, so my main theme was that everywhere you looked there MUST be flowers! I wanted everything to look like it had been gathered from a cottage garden.”

  • “I wanted a dress that fitted the more relaxed, boho style. I loved the lace detail on the top and edging on the sleeves and back.  I loved the simplicity of it but having the open back as the show-stopper.”
