I’m not sure how but it’s Thursday already! Where on earth has this week gone?...
When the new year arrives so do all the new trends for the up coming wedding season. There are so many exciting and new ideas for 2016 and beyond. We thought it would be a good time to share some amazing new hair trends, I am absolutely loving all the new styles at the moment. Loose curls, messy updo’s paired with some gorgeous Boho Crowns. Today Camilla Collins shares with us some beautiful hair trends, I hope you find them useful.
Unlike a lot of the UK population, I love this time of year. The start of the year is my favourite time, it’s when the internet comes alive with newly engaged couples and excited brides-to-be planning away for their big day in 2016!
Brown lipstick is back… and that includes nudes too! Makeup this year will be taking on an all natural, “english rose” feel. With the newly publicised strobing technique, it’s all about bright, glowing skin and rosy cheeks. Earthy tones and warm metallics will be favoured over silvers and greys around the eyes and this will create a soft, natural look with subtly contoured eyes.Read More
Today we are heading off for a huge dose of summer sunshine with this stunning Tuscany Wedding. Lord knows that we need some sunshine at the moment, the weather here in the UK is positively horrid. I hope today’s helping of wedding pretty puts you in a good mood and starts you thinking about your summer holidays! Emily and Daniel have always loved Tuscany so decided it was the ideal place to get married. They kept things simple as the Italian backdrop was so amazing, and created a soft, natural looking ceremony area and beautiful reception with long tables for relaxed dining. Putting their art degrees to good use they both created some really pretty DIY projects that really added a lovely helping of personality into the day. Thanks to David Bastianoni Photography for the lovely images.
Emily and Daniel were married on 30th July 2015 at Tenuta La Borriana, Carmignano, Tuscany, Italy. ‘Italy has long been a favourite holiday destination for Daniel & I. The art, food, history & culture as well as the romance, beauty and sunshine! We thought it would be the perfect place to get married… and it was! We had 83 guests plus 4 children. We got engaged in June 2013 and started making plans straight away. In the 2 years building up to the wedding, we visited Italy twice. The first time was with our parents, to explore venues and meet the ‘Getting Married in Italy’ team. The second visit was to our chosen venue. We met the lovely family who run La Borriana and started to build a picture of how the wedding would be.’
Flower crowns are one of my favourite things in weddings at the moment, they have been here for a while and look like they are here to stay. Hen parties, if I’m honest are not my favourite thing, they can too easily get tacky and just bad on so many levels. If you feel the same as I do then you will be delighted with this afternoons post, as I am here to tell you more about Emma form Orchis Floral Design new hen party idea!
Emma has put her love of flowers, flower crowns and throwing a good party together and come up with a fun, alternative hen party idea. Emma will host your hen party while teaching you and your hens how to create a beautiful flowercrown that you get to keep and take home. What could be better? flowers, bubbles and fun with your girlfriends all in one evening, perfect!
Happy Monday everyone! Did you have a good weekend? I hope you are all well and ready for another jam packed week on the blog, as it’s going to be a busy one. I am starting the week off by bringing you a huge serving of summer sunshine, courtesy of this beautiful vineyard wedding from Lucy Noble Photography. It’s an eclectic wedding, with lots of pretty homespun details, a giant paella, beautiful naked cake, all of which was planned in 8 weeks, which just goes to she that not all weddings need years of preparation!
Talia and Brandon were married on 8th August 2015. The Ceremony was held at The Bury, Hemel Hempstead Registry Office followed by a reception at Frithsden Vineyard, Hertfordshire. ‘The Bury in Hemel is a really lovely registry office in a listed building. We were really surprised by how nice it was, liked the registrar and the fact it had history. We chose Frithsden Vineyard for our reception as we wanted a venue close to where we live. We definitely didn’t want the traditional wedding ‘do’. Frithsden is a working, boutique vineyard with space to walk and take in the beautiful views as well as a pretty, modest seated area at the front covered by a few gazebos. As it turned out we were one of the first weddings to take place at the vineyard. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful and we felt like we were speaking with friends from the get-go. They understood exactly what we wanted from the first meeting and it was a really relaxed process. Guest wise we had 20 family and a few close friends at the ceremony and 70 in total for the reception. We booked everything in a few hours whilst we were on holiday in Majorca. We took whatever dates were available and left Majorca with only 8 weeks until the wedding day. Looking back it seems a bit mad that the lead-time was so short, especially as there were a lot of DIY elements. The main concern was making sure that people would be able to come at such short notice, however, with a few exceptions, we were lucky’
Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to February! I don’t know if you are anything like me but I am so glad that January is done and dusted. February is always a short month and then it’s March, which is my birthday and in my head officially spring, so happy days! What are you all up to today? We have a family day planned, nothing to manic as it’s a really busy time at the moment in our household, so a lazy morning and then a trip out for the afternoon. Then this evening I am meeting up with a friend and going to the cinema, which I am super excited about.
