Today I am giving you some much-needed sunshine as we head across the ocean for...
This afternoon we are turning our attention to the bridesmaids out there. If you are currently searching for the perfect bridesmaids outfits, then look no further as we bring you Rewritten. Rewritten was launched in 2016 with the sole aim of bringing the wedding world cool, sleek bridesmaids dresses in styles that suited everyone in a variety of colours. They also come as a two piece option with mix and match skirts and tops available. Back in 2016 we brought you their gorgeous dresses and two years on they are back on the blog talking about the new additions to the collection. These dresses are modern, stylish and perfect for your best girls to look fabulous all day long.
We are Rewritten – we are friends and ex-work colleagues Katie Arnott and Frances Cookson and we created our brand in 2016 as we were frustrated by the choice of bridesmaid dresses out there when looking for ourselves. Frances’ background is fashion design and marketing and Katie is a retail guru so between us we created the collection and brought it to market. Our dresses are designed for all of those awesome bridesmaids out there, they are chic, sophisticated and take an entirely modern approach to bridal wear. The entire collection is hand-designed in London by Frances where we create contemporary designs in the most beautiful fabric and colour combinations.
Today I am taking you off to the gorgeous countryside of Belgium, as we say goodbye to this horrible April rain and say hello to some good old summer sunshine! Bas and Lars met in Belgium, so decided that this had to be the place they got married. They found the cutest old farm and pulled their wedding together from there. With so many friends helping out on the day with things like the flowers, cake, stationery and DJ-ing, this really is a hands on wedding where all the guests got involved. Filling their reception with some beautiful flowers, this wedding is not only brimming with sunshine but with so much love and so many touching moments. Big thanks to David Walters Photography for the images.
Bas and Lars were married on 20th August at De Deugdzonde in Flandern, Belgium. ‘We met while living in Brussels, also we love the Belgian countryside and came across this beautiful old farm that had been transformed into a B&B. We had180 guests and it took 18 months to plan.’
This afternoon I have something truly special for any of those jewellery lovers out there, or for any of you currently looking for your dream engagement ring!

Eidel, the founder of this gorgeous company, is here to tell you a bit more about the rings, the styles she offers and how much they cost.
Today I have the most gorgeous wedding for you that was sent into me by Boho bride, Bianca. Bianca and Anthony created a whole wedding world of nature inspired goodness in their back garden. The couple are big nature lovers, so they wanted this aspect to reflect in every aspect of their wedding day. They set about creating a detail full wedding, with many a handmade project, helped heavily by their friends and family. From the home-grown flowers and herbs that created a feast for the eyes as well as the nose. Homemade edible treats, from nibbles to cocktails. So many personal touches and a never-ending list of gorgeous earthy details. This wedding is a visual feast from beginning to end. Thanks to James Green for the lovely images.
Bianca and Anthony were married on 10th June 2017 at Stowford Manor Farm, Loves Lane gardens for the reception. ‘Stowford Manor Farm is about a mile away from our cottage. It’s a beautiful place, set on The River Avon. It also offered some of our guests a place to stay if they felt like camping. We both fell in love with it and once Anthony had proposed both of us really wanted to be married there. Another reason for choosing Stowford Manor is that they’re really relaxed, it’s a creative space you can make your own. Anthony and I aren’t Christian, but we wanted to pledge our love in a way that connected with nature and a pagan appreciation. We also had a hand fastening in addition to our vows. For our reception, we live in little lane called Loves Lane, tucked away in a tiny village and his mother and her partner now live next door to us. We wanted the reception to be here, and so decided to use our garden and Gillian and her partner, John’s garden for this purpose. We had 84 guest for the ceremony and another 30 invited to the party.’
Happy Monday everyone and welcome along to another jam-packed week on the blog. I hope you had a great weekend and that you managed to enjoy some of the good weather we have been having? Mine was lovely. Time spent with fiends, family and of course my two boys. This weather has got me super excited for the summer ahead of us!
On with today’s wedding and I have to say it’s a good one! Set in the sunshine state of California, on the most beautiful ranch, this wedding is everything that I love. Rustic chic at it’s best! A heartfelt first look, emotional outdoor ceremony and super stylish reception. The whole day is filled with whites and greens, my favourite of wedding colour schemes, natural yet super stylish. I just love the use of eucalyptus, the white bridesmaids dresses and of course Hannah’s wedding two piece. Big thanks to Katie Rummel from Kreate Photography for the gorgeous photos.
Hannah and Scott were married on 9th September 2017 (which was Hannah’s parent’s wedding anniversary in 1975) on an incredible 20-acre ranch in the mountains of Calistoga, California called Triple S Ranch. ‘It’s so important to pick the right venue and there were a few things that were so important to us; having people stay on site, and having a beautiful space in nature. Our vision really allowing time for our community to connect, and being surrounded by mountains. We wanted as many people to stay on site with us as possible, so that narrowed our choices a lot. Triple S Ranch was a great fit in that we could accommodate 50 people in beautiful cabins on site so people could roll out of bed, grab coffee and breakfast, and head to the pool to hang out before the festivities started each day. We had 140 guests and it took 11 months to plan.’
