A question I get asked a lot is how do I politely word the fact I want money, and not cotton sheets from my guests? Although expensive Egyptian cotton sheets are super lovely, if like most brides of today, you have been living in sin with your partner for eons already, you pretty much have all your linen needs sorted. Couples always feel weird asking for gifts or money. But it is a fact - you have a wedding, you are going to get presents. Some of these presents are going to be amazingly thoughtful items that you will treasure for years to come. But there will be some items that you receiv

  There are a few colour combinations that just make me smile when I think of them. Bold red with sweet aqua is definitely one of those combinations. Happy, bright and a little bit cheeky, this delightful duo is the epitome of fun and merriment.

Many brides are now ditching the David Austin's in favour of extraordinary Echeverias to create spectacular bouquets of, what can only be described as, Mother Nature's masterpieces. Visually stunning and low maintenance, the unique pieces of your botanical bouquet can be replanted and will continue to grow, long after your wedding day.

  Today begins the start of a weekly blog series I like to call Wedding Wednesday or 'Weddinsday'. It will be a little collection board of current trends, colours and designs that I have noticed to be gaining momentum in the wedding world. I thought it would be appropriate to kick off Weddinsday with the 2013 Pantone colour of the year: Emerald. Emerald is simply a gorgeous colour. Vibrant, rich and, as it was named after a precious gem, it immediately conveys feelings of opulence and grandeur. I love seeing this colour combined with an otherwise simple black and white theme - very ar
