I’m especially excited about announcing London Bride’s newest sponsor because, well, I seem to have a shopping addiction with buying decorative items and can often be found sourcing them from Peach Blossom! They are UK based (hurrah!) and offer all the fun little touches in their online shop from stripy straws, paper fans, giant balloons, cute party paper bags and for those twine addicts, lots of baker’s twine too! It’s run by Alyssa who has always been super helpful and runs a prompt service, I’ve often used Peach Blossom as a resource for planning and styling my own couples weddings! So if you are looking for stylish party or wedding decorations then Peach Blossom should be your first (and perhaps last!) stop!

All of the above items are available (milk bottles and jam jars included!) so do head on over to the website to check out all the lovely items for the finishing touches to your wedding: www.peachblossom.co.uk

I just thought I’d show off these absolutely gorgeous monogrammed Christmas cards that are winging their way to my clients! These were courtesy of the very talented designer and calligrapher Erin at Berinmade. It’s so lovely to see ones name in fabulous handwriting as I never make it look this nice!
The personalised monogram cards are available from Berinmade on Etsy and if you hurry you may just be able to make an order if like me you always leave things until the last minute [you may be subject to a small rush fee!]. Otherwise, pencil these for next year!
As well as sending someone your warm wishes, it’s also nice to know that 50% of the proceeds from these cards goes to Via Design, a UK based organisation which helps vulnerable women in India, equipping them with sustainable craft skills such as embroidery so that they can rise out of poverty and a history of sexual abuse and trauma.
Huge thanks to Erin, now who will the lucky recipients be…
As you may already be well aware, as well as this here blog I am a wedding planner and stylist – which means that, well – I have my fingers in many pies! I therefore absolutely love it when I get to combine my skills and passions, so when the adorable and hardworking husband and wife duo Hayley and Lucas from Alphabet Bags got in touch about the opportunity of co-ordinating and styling their photo shoots for their collections and new website – the answer was of course a big YES!
The Wedding Collection / Alphabet Bags
I just wanted to share with you some of the images from these shoots [there were quite a few, turns out working with the alphabet means there's lots of products!] to not only showcase the styling work I do, but also their gorgeous products and the stunning photography from the fabulous Fanni Williams, who you may also know as the creative director behind our joint venture, Dashing Magazine.
I was already a fan of the Alphabet Bag products [naturally I had the ampersand bag, but will fully admit this collection has now grown ten-fold!] and even more so as they launched the fantastic wedding tote collection and more recently the cute purses and amazing collaboration with artist Rob Ryan. See, these chaps are unstoppable aren’t they!
