This morning I shared with you my favourite real weddings of 2019, there were some...
This afternoon we are all about the men here on the blog, men’s wedding rings to be specific. So much time is dedicated to the bride when we are wedding planning that too often the men get forgotten. Today though I thought it was time to change that. Men’s wedding rings are often overlooked, but they are just as important, and potentially stylish, as wedding rings for women. If you are looking to buy a wedding ring for your soon to be husband, or if you are a groom looking for your own ring, then consider the following essential tips that will help you pick out the perfect ring for your upcoming wedding.
You should ideally shop for Men’s Rings Online for two key reasons: you will find the best prices online and you will also find a much wider variety of rings available. Ring shops may only have a few options for men, and none of them may be ideal for your soon to be husband’s personal taste or needs.
You should carefully consider the material used to create the ring. The material plays a large part in the ring’s durability, weight, and other factors that can influence how long it lasts or what it feels like to wear. One of the most popular materials for men’s rings is zircona ceramic, which is not only stylish but is durable and easy to clean as well. It is also affordable, which makes it an appealing option when you don’t want to go outside of your budget for the rings.
Today’s styled shoot is the perfect combination of urban cool mixed with soft bohemian botanical goodness. The shoot took place on 24th March in Baltimore, at Habitat at Seya. It has been sent into me by the Event Planner Love Clark Events and photographed by Garnet Dahlia Photography. This shoot is a great example of how you can mix a touch of urban with a touch of boho and create a cool, yet warm mixture of beautiful tones, stunning floras and vintage inspired outfits. All of this is pulled together by this beautiful couple, who add a real sense of style and love to the shoot.
Happy Wednesday everyone. How are you all? As we reach the mid-point of the week I have the most gorgeous wedding to share with you. Anna and Ilaria are our two beautiful brides, who decided to get married in Italy, close to their home town and a place that Anna used to visit as a child. This exquisite palace makes such a breathtaking venue for a wedding, filled with the most amazing backdrop and perfect for a grand yet laid back outdoor reception. I love their sense of style, their use of colour, the cactus favours, the handmade dreamcatchers, the smoke bombs and the 2 gorgeous outfits. What an amazing wedding. Big thanks to Laura Stramacchia for sharing the images with us.
Anna and Ilaria were married on 14th September at Palazzo della Loggia, Brescia Palazzo Barbò, Torre Pallavicina in the Italian region of Lombardy. ‘We were looking for a place not too far from our hometown, Brescia, and possibly close to our families too. We wanted a place reflecting our love for nature and our idea of simplicity and we decided to visit Palazzo Barbò, a 15th century palace in the middle of the countryside. Anna immediately fell in love with the venue, a wonderful place full of history and magic. Moreover Palazzo Barbò was part of Ilaria’s childhood memories. She used to cycle there with her dad and her brother as a child. We knew it was the right place the moment we saw it. We had 110 guests and it took about 5 months to plan. Anna proposed on April the 5th and Ilaria started planning the wedding the day after.’
Your Wedding Make Up is going to be an important part of your big day, getting the right MUA (Make Up Artist) booked is an important part of your wedding planning. BUT what makes an MUA the right person for YOU and YOUR wedding? What look are you going for? Do you normally wear a lot of make up or are you more of a natural kind of bride (or groom). Will you need a trial? What sort of questions do you need to ask? There are many things to consider, but fear not, as today we have expert Wedding Artist Victoria Northbrooke on the blog to guide you on the right path. Victoria has just launched her own Podcast Beauty & The Bride. She says ‘It is a new series dedicated to protecting brides from overdone Youtube style makeup, heavy ‘insta-brows’ and badly made hair extensions. She says ‘Beauty & The Bride guides discerning brides through the beauty jungle to ensure they look effortlessly stunning when they say, “I Do”.’ Victoria is on hand to offer her expert advice so feel free to leave her a comment if you have any further questions for her.
The secret to booking the best wedding makeup artist is to treat it like an interview. You need to do your homework and ask the right questions, so you can book the best professional for you. Typing in ‘best wedding makeup artist’ in Google is no guarantee that you’ll find the best. You need to do some legwork.
Search for makeup artists in your area but be prepared to also go further afield if you don’t find a local artist that excites you. Read forums, check testimonials and ask your friends and family for recommendations.

Kristen and Garrett’s wedding day was perfect. The ceremony was held at St Anne’s cathedral and the Reception was held at Eastern Market Corporation. Their dogs and Sparty (Michigan States mascot) made an appearance at the reception just in time to congratulate them! The reception venue looks absolutely amazing, huge flower arrangements add a modern look to this stunning warehouse type venue and the rose gold detailing keep it looking super stylish. Pure wedding perfection!
