Halfpenny London

I’ve been lucky enough to have a few of my brides choose an exquisite Halfpenny London design for their wedding day, along with visiting the beautiful boutique in person – the British made designs are truly stunning and perfect for the stylish fashion conscious bride with their romantic fabrics and feminine silhouettes.

Mr & Mrs Smith

A favourite of mine for personal holidays and mini breaks, they have the best selection of boutique hotels whether it’s a luxe London hotel for the wedding night, or maybe even a pre-wedding pamper holiday they will be able to offer some great advice and tips to suit your needs. They also have some amazing locations for destination weddings.  Oh to be here right now…

Charlotte Simpson

New on my radar is designer Charlotte Simpson who’s ready to wear collection is seriously stunning. Modern, clean lines and subtle details make these dresses so incredibly perfect for a city chic bride.

The Photo Emporium

There’s no denying that a photobooth is a must-have addition to any wedding, so for something a little different these guys offer some very unique options rather than a traditional booth which makes it even more fun!

Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium

For those wanting a cake with wow factor you won’t be disappointed. Beautifully crafted with incredible real detail Elizabeth’s  cakes are almost a shame to cut into but having been lucky enough to taste, believe me they taste as good as they look too.

Wedding Blog Awards 2014 – London Bride is Nominated!

Perhaps I’m a little late in mentioning this, but just a quick post to let you know that I’ve been oh-so-kindly nominated for ‘Best City Wedding Blog’ in the upcoming Wedding Blog Awards 2014 (you may have spotted the badge on the right!). I was lucky enough to attend the event last year at The Ritz (tough life, I know) and was pretty amazed not to mention thrilled to have come away with a winners trophy that night… and to have met Mark ‘daahhhhhhling I just luuuuuuuuuv a good weddingggg’ Francis from Made in Chelsea.  Look, me and Mr London Bride got glammed up especially! It was a fabulous evening and the trophy proudly sits in my office to remind me of how far I’ve come since I did my first post back in 2009!

Running two businesses (the blog and wedding planning) isn’t easy all on your own, and it’s been a pretty hectic year for me, so even being nominated was a lovely surprise and a very nice reward for all the hard work that the last year has entailed! Not going to lie, I am rather looking forward to a night at The Savoy though too…
