Good Morning to you on this wonderful and sunny Saturday. I am waking up in St.Albans this morning and I can tell you the weather is much better here to the Yorkshire weather we left last yesterday afternoon. I know we are in the same country and it’s only a 3/4 hour drive away but it is so much warmer down in the south of England. Does anyone agree with me on that one?
Today we are back with our weekly pins feature, where Kelly H and I have chosen our favourite pins from accross Pinterest this week. I hope you like both our selections.
Here is a selection of our top 10 pins of the week……………..

I can’t believe it’s Friday already, I just love weeks where we have a bank holiday, that extra day at the weekend makes so much difference. Shame that we will have to wait until August for the next one. How are you all? I am very well, I am just about to set off on the long journey from Yorkshire to St.Albans for a wedding we have there tomorrow. I can’t revel much about the wedding just yet but I can tell you it is certainly going to be a LOT of fun! We have no plans for Sunday so I am hoping for a lazy family day. Whatever plans you have this weekend Kelly and I hope you have a great time.
As it’s Friday it’s time for another edition of Diary of a Boho Bride and I am pleased to introduce you to Whitney and Tom‘s first entry. I am so jealous of their plans. It’s going to be a fantastic wedding day! A Destination wedding in Ibiza, just like our very own Kelly H!
I’ll pass you over to Whitney…..
In my last entry I explained that the first big decision we made was about the venue. When we began talking about what we both envisaged for our w-day, I was super excited that my dream of having a wedding on the White Isle really floated Tom’s wedding boat too.
With Ibiza proving to be a really popular wedding destination we decided to book our venue without seeing it (eek!). With the help of our wedding planner Lisa from Isla and Smith, we shortlisted 5 venues and then after much deliberation, we booked the one which we felt ticked all of our boxes. For us, this was a completely private location, stunning scenery, guest accommodation, the fact we could take over the venue for 3 days (who wouldn’t want to their wedding to be a 3 day event!) and lastly the raving reviews, in particular about the venue owners. Too many times we had met with greedy, inflexible wedding venue owners so we were very much looking forward to meeting with Santi and his wife, Anna, at Can Gall when we visited in April.
Just in case you are interested the other venues on the shortlist were Hacienda Na Xamena, Experimental Beach Club, Can Talais and a private villa.
The excitement and anxiety levels leading up to our trip was in equal proportion. What if the venue wasn’t what we had thought? What if we had made the biggest error of not seeing the venue before we booked it? What if everything else we’ve planned doesn’t work?
With both sets of parents in tow we visited Ibiza for a long weekend, we hired a car and spent most of the weekend exploring the island (which I would highly recommend doing) with one full day spent at the venue. It was also Tom’s birthday so we visited the famous Bambuddah Grove to celebrate.
Happy Friday everyone. Have you got that Friday feeling? I certainly hope so! How many of you have weddings to go to this weekend? Wedding season has certainly kicked in. It’s great listening to my supplier friends talk about this summers weddings and what to expect from their couples. If you are getting married this year I hope the planning is going well. Talking of summer weddings, I have a lovely August wedding for you today from Tom Simone Weddings. A relaxed outdoor ceremony, with a bare footed bride, that overlooks a wonderful view of Snowdon.
‘A magical day in very special surroundings filled with the people we love.’
Jayne and William were married on 16th August at Trigonos, Nantlle, Wales. ‘It is a special place for us. We wanted a very low key, peaceful place with a connection to the outdoors. You have a wonderful view of Snowdon across the valley. We had 50 guests in total and it took 1 year to plan.
Today I am starting a new monthly ‘Ideas and Inspiration’ feature, this week starting with Metallic Weddings. I do love a bit of inspiration and as a wedding blogger it is my job to bring you the trends, the wedding fashions and all that is new and popular in the wedding world. So each month I will be looking into certain trends, colour ways, or a specific area of your wedding day to bring you some ideas and inspiration on how to create that look.
Today I m starting with Metallic weddings, a trend that is so hot in the wedding world right now and one of my personal favourites. Incorporating metallics into your wedding day will bring you a clean modern look, as well as a touch of industrial glam! Mix it up with soft pastels for a vintage look, or bring in a mix of sparkles and you have a super Lux look.

Happy Thursday everyone, I hope the day is going well for everyone. To carry on this week of wonderful weddings I have a rather gorgeous tipi wedding courtesy of Dominique and Liam from York Place Studios. As you know I do love a tipi wedding, they are always so relaxed and chilled out, perfect if you are looking for something a little less traditional. This handmade wedding is filled with lots of little personal touches, great food, great music and lots of baking. A wonderful mixture of love, laughter and some wonderful photography.
‘A relaxed tipi wedding with homemade décor and the best bunch of people to share our day with. An amazing, wonderful day of laughs, love and many tears that we will always remember.’
Amanda and Richard were married on 4th April 2015 at The ceremony was at All Saints Church, Lupton, Cumbria with the reception being held in tipis at our local rugby club in Kirkby Lonsdale. ‘The church has always been a part of Richard’s life, having taken parts in many Christmas nativities there during his childhood. It is also very close to our family farm and is where Grandad Barton is buried. We have always loved the idea of tipis and the relaxed, fun atmosphere that they help to create. We hired ours from Fjell Event Tipis, based in Keswick, and had them in the grounds of Kirkby Lonsdale Rugby Club, where Richard has played rugby since the age of six. There was 85 guests for the day plus an additional 70 for the evening reception. It took About 18 months to plan the wedding.’
