Well, as the [ahem] popular 90s boy band Blue sang ‘One Love’ is all about one thing – Love – but in all different forms and combinations. In case you’ve been living under a rock lately, you’ll now be aware of the fabulous news that a few weeks ago, the law was passed [finally!!!] to enable same-sex couples to marry legally in England and Wales. Incredibly positive news for gay and lesbian couples throughout the country and to the wedding industry, so very timely to introduce you all to the One Love Wedding Show London…
Sara Smyth from unique bridal boutique ruby+diva and Becky Hoh-Hale from A Most Curious Wedding Fair have joined forces to create the coolest gay wedding fair on the block. ’Unique, gay, inspirational’ sums up the essence of the new wedding show coming to London on 19th & 20th October later this year. The show’s aim is to showcase cool, style-driven wedding inspiration specifically to gay and lesbian couples planning their beautiful wedding days.
There will be everything to make your day super-special with friendly and supportive wedding suppliers with fresh inspiration and ideas to enable you to have a stylish and expressive day that reflects you as a couple. The show will be at the prestigious Hospital Club, in Covent Garden London, kicking off with an exclusive preview of the 70 exhibitors at the VIP night on Saturday with the main event on Sunday featuring entertainment, fashion shows and even a contemporary art exhibition – as inspiration can come from everywhere!

If like me, you treasure the sentimental things in life then as a bride the garter is one of those little things. It’s pretty, delicate and risqué but what I love most is the idea that you can be the one handing down such a sweet and treasured little item to the next generation in your family for their own wedding day. We all fondly imagine that moment when we get handed the ‘something old’ to us on our big day, so this is the perfect keepsake after the wedding [which doesn't need dry cleaning or storing in a huge box in the loft!].
If you are a lover of luxurious beautiful things Ell and Cee offer the the most stylish underwear and loungewear for brides for that little something special and now as part of their accessories range they have the prettiest collection of garters available, ranging from £32-55.
However, for two weeks all London Bride readers can receive an exclusive 15% discount on garters so why not treat yourself to one of these little treasures… simply head on over to their website www.ellandceebride.co.uk and use the discount code LB15 at the checkout before purchasing.
My personal favourite is the Deco Garter – the Grace Kelly of all garters with it’s simple stylish design and the sparkle of course! But if you are looking for the ‘something blue’ then the Alice Blue Garter is the perfect choice.
Although the history of the garter is that it would be tossed by the groom to unmarried guests, you wouldn’t want to do that with one of these beauties. Oh no… that’s why you toss your boquet instead, girls – this ones a keeper.
