Flowers really can lift a wedding, personally I am a big fan of adding as many flowers as you can to your wedding ceremony and reception, I think they are super pretty and such a lovely way to add your own personality to your day. Today Claire from Plant Passion is here to show you how to put together a beautiful table centre arrangement for your wedding reception. It’s so easy and in a bid to move away from the smaller arrangements that jam jars give, this arrangement is substantial and will take up more space on your table.
- Flowers we used: White Sweet Williams, Campanulas, Tritelias, Cornflowers and Roses
Jam jars are fantastic for table centre arrangements, but if you’ve got more than 6-8 placings on a table, a single jam jar is going to look rather lonely. – Rather than have a batch of them, – go big with this DIY table arrangement.
- Before you start condition your flowers well, this will mean they will last the whole party and still be ready to be given as presents at the end.
Happy Monday to you all and welcome along to another fun packed week on the Blog, how was your weekend? Mine was good, nice and chilled so I feel revived and ready for what ever this week has to throw at me. Todays wedding is brought to you courtesy of the incredibly talented Matt Parry Photography. It’s gorgeous to look at but simple in detail and a great example that you don’t need loads of fuss and decor to have a really special day. Rebecca and Ryan concentrated on the three things that mattered most to them when they were wedding planning; booze, band and the photographer and with this in mind managed to keep the planning fuss free and within budget. A perfect example of wedding planning done right!
‘A beautiful day spent with great family and friends’
Rebecca and Ryan were married on 21st March 2015 just a short walk from their home, at Henley on Thames Town Hall, followed by a party at the local pub The Little Angel. ‘We can see the Town Hall from our back door, and it is such an iconic building for Henley locals – it felt really exciting transforming our everyday surroundings into something so special! We also wanted the day to be as fuss free as possible for our guests, and this ticked all the boxes. We had 150 guests in total for the ceremony and party and the wedding took 6 months to plan.’
Happy Sunday everyone, I do hope you are having a lovely weekend in the sunshine? have you managed to get out much? It’s been a lovely weekend for us, things have been a bit busy at home over the last few weeks, so it has been good to have a more chilled weekend. Yesterday Dexter had a birthday party to go to, so we all got to enjoy some afternoon sunshine and birthday cake, and today I have an office day. The whole weekend we have really been enjoying the Glastonbury coverage. Evey year Nik and I make a point of watching as much of it as we can, and this year has been fantastic. As far as the blog goes I had another meeting this week with my blog designers and it’s looking petty amazing. I now have a launch date of 1st September, so not to long to wait, I am so excited to share the new design and layout with you.
Now it’s time for this weeks best bits, I’ve added a couple of new categories for you, so enjoy.

I am quite happy to admit I am waking up with a very sore head this morning. I am in Glastonbury for the weekend and so far I am having the most amazing time. I went to see so many bands last night, laughed so much and may have stumbled back to the camper van fuelled with cider, singing my heart out at 3am. I am so looking forward to what today and Sunday brings. I hope you have a great weekend with whatever plans you have.
Here is a selection of our top 10 pins of the week……………..

With a passion for creative imagery and meeting like-minded people with a sense of humour, my style is casual, flexible and void of instructional yelling, documenting the smallest details to the grandest gestures. As a relatively camera-shy introverted extrovert, I empathise with those of you who want beautiful and timeless photographs, but who don’t enjoy spending ages in front of a zoom lens. I spend time getting to know the couples I work with which helps me to take images I know they would love to star in, whether it’s a candid moment, a relaxed and naturally posed photo shoot or a quirkily styled bundle of loveliness. Planning a wedding is such an amazing emotional journey and I’d love to capture the essence of your unique day in all its fabulous glory.

Happy Friday everyone and how are you? are you on a weekend count down? Not long now and we can all clock off and enjoy the weekends activities! Today we are back with our lovely couple Ruth and Mike. With only 8 weeks to go before the big day it’s all systems go for them. Last time Ruth gave us an update on all the areas of the wedding planning, today it is all about the bridesmaids dresses and the wedding day stationery.
I’ll pass you over to Ruth and Mike
We’re now less than eight weeks until the big day…and man don’t I know it! I feel so crazy busy with everything, especially after realizing there’s a honeymoon to finish arranging and holiday clothes to shop for and buy on top of everything else! For the honeymoon, we’ll be travelling around Italy and we’ve planned the trip independently so, as you can imagine, it’s taken quite a bit of time to scope out exactly where we want to go, book the internal flights/trains and search for the most suited hotels! We’ve just got car hire to book then that should be it!
The bridesmaid dresses arrived from For Him and For Her just the other day, I’m SO pleased with them! I was nervous ordering bridesmaid dresses online but I can absolutely vouch for this website, the material is soft and falls beautifully, the dresses are really well made, they look great and the bridesmaids are happy with them…so that’s another one ticked off my wedding to-do list!
