A teaser...


... from last week's shoot. Working with the dream team was amazing. The models were brilliant and even the weather held out for us.

Can't wait to show you more.

Happy Feet

Apologies for lack of blogging last week folks. Let's just say it was a truly crazy week all round (more on this soon) so bring back normality soon please ;)

Looking forward to Alix and Zach's wedding this coming Saturday followed by a rather exciting shoot featuring some of the finest UK wedding suppliers the week after.

In the meantime I'm been thinking about shoes this morning. Let's be honest. Most bridal shoes are somewhat disappointing. They look old fashioned (not in a good way) and kind of tacky and just wrong somehow. Not to mention how expensive they can be.

Whilst browsing Asos (for work purposes of course), I came across these bad boys. The high street is definitely worth checking out for your bridal attire if these dresses and the shoes below are anything to go by.

 



Think the shoe boot is my favourite, (plus it's the cheapest).

Fifty Nifty Paper Antler








These beautiful images are from boutique photographers Paper Antler, a US husband and wife photography duo. And you have to read about their Fifty Nifty project. Photographing 50 weddings in 50 states within 50 weeks donating $1000 per wedding to an anti-human trafficking organisation She Dances for a total of $50,000.

How incredible is that? You can read more about this here.

Pick of the best high street wedding dresses

from top left:


There's a lot to be said for splashing out on the most expensive wedding dress you can afford but for some brides Vera Wang just ain't an option.

Thankfully the high street has some affordable and rather gorgeous wedding dresses on offer, as this little selection proves. 

Which one's your favourite? It's not actually a wedding dress, but I think the scallop edge Ted Baker dress is my favourite. Perfect for a chic city summer wedding accompanied with some killer heels and a delectable cocktail in hand, no?

Sometimes being a wedding planner is like being a child...

...in that you get to do so many fun crafty projects. I've been seeing these D.I.Y paper fans or paper flowers or whatever they're called, for a while now and figured they look pretty easy and I'd give it a whirl.

Pleased to say they most definitely are easy to make. And since we're all getting slightly sick of bunting, they're a good cheap replacement.

All you need is good quality paper in whatever colours you like, some monofilament (transparent, plastic wire type stuff), and whatever you want to stick them to the wall with (I actually just used white tak) but you can hang them too.


Not going to bother with the whole how-to because you're all pretty clever and it's not exactly hard...



Once you've artfully folded two pieces of A4 you staple it together, tie some monofilament through the middle to keep it together, make a hole with a hole punch and voila...



Good for filling blank/dull spaces this is one D.I.Y project that really is super easy and depending on your chosen colours can fit any 'theme'.*

What do you think lovelies? Would you use these paper fans for your wedding decor, or do they remind you too much of school (sure I made these when I was about seven).

* I use the word 'theme' ironically of course. I don't know about you but 'wedding theme' is definitely one of those phrases that gives me the heebie jeebies.

Time to get into the groove

Good morning and welcome to another week folks! Today's what does a wedding planner actually do is all about creating the right working environment, (as inspired by Madonna and her ability to get into that groove).


Everyone is different but I think most people benefit from working set hours in a proper location i.e a desk, not your bed, the sofa, floor etc.

Creating a decent work space for yourself gives you more pride in your work, makes you feel more focused and helps spark creativity.

Before I purchased my snazzy orange Ikea desk I worked at the dining room table. Which wasn't great as it's in the same room as the TV. And somehow Neighbours and Home and Away were always on. Working in the lounge meant I would just pop the TV on for company - Jeremy Kyle, Loose Women, yep, all that trashy TV became the background noise to my work.

But now I have a clean, (most of the time), work space, which is just for work and whilst I work better with some sound, the company of the radio is far preferable to people shouting on Jeremy Kyle. Because if it's a case of sorting out my insurance, or watching a man who fathered his sister's best friend's child's baby, which one's most likely to win out?

What about you? Where's your favourite place to work?
