Urban and atmospheric wedding with winter brights for couple Jess and Nick’s February celebrations at the elegant yet distressed The Asylum and MC Motors.
It’s actually quite a struggle for me to put together the features on weddings that I’ve planned and been a part of, and for that reason you’ll notice they generally have a lot more images so I can only apologise in advance if this is a lengthy one!
I co-ordinated this urban brights winter wedding earlier in February and it’s taken me quite some time just to edit the images down. Partly because Lee at Robbins Phogoraphic has captured the day in such a way I almost feel like I can’t miss anything out, partly because Jess and Nick are a seriously good looking couple and partly because the day was beautiful – in style and in atmosphere. I’m sure you’ll see my struggle!
Jess and Nick managed to combine so much into their day. It was bright but stylish, informal yet romantic whilst being elegant and urban. Not many couples choose February as a month to marry in, but with colourful wild flowers by Palais Flowers, beautifully worn venues, a cosy atmosphere and all your loved ones together it really could have been any day of the year.
A new (hopefully!) feature series on what London Bride Loves; a roundup of life in weddings, London and lifestyle.
In my position as a blogger, Londoner, wedding industry member and general sucker for nice things it’s actually impossible for me to keep you updated with everything I see, like, hear about and do. So, in honour of at least attempting to share things, I’ll be featuring what London Brides Loves across weddings, London and lifestyle as a round-up post with little snippets instead!
I’d like to try and do these every other week, but let’s see how we go (don’t want to make promises, I have a very busy wedding season coming up!!) but the good news is here is the first!
From beauty balms to blemish treatments, I open up my bathroom cabinet to share what my skin is enjoying at the moment with my current skincare favourites.
A while ago I posted a round-up on my favourite beauty resources, and whilst I’m certainly no beauty blogger I thought it may be fun to share with you my current favourite skincare products. Since hitting 30 (ahem a few years back) I’ve tried to invest in my skin more than I used to, and so have since become a little obsessed with beauty products! It’s a slippery slope my friend.
However, I’m the kind of person who reads every review, watches every beauty vlog, looks up the star rating and then tries samples with each product as I like to make sure it’s an investment (especially where the more expensive potions are involved!). So all of these are very much staples in my bathroom and have been well and truly tried and tested!
For those looking to add unique details and handcrafted items to their wedding, the Etsy Wedding Fair on May 16th – 17th in London is not to be missed!
I imagine that many of you planning your wedding right now would put both hands in the air if I asked if you’ve been on Etsy to find something for your big day. Am I right? It’s the first place to go to if you need home-made, hand-crafted, unique and personal details, decorations or designs to incorporate into your wedding.
A CRAFTY RESOURCE
It’s really quite amazing what you can source through Etsy, and for that reason it’s a resource I use (for wedding clients, styling and personal!) all the time. So I’m very excited to share details of the upcoming The Etsy Wedding Fair this Spring, as it’s somewhere you’ll be able to be inspired in person, to meet the crafters, and to see the products in real-life, along with lots of other fun treats!
London Bride has a ticket giveaway for 10 pairs of tickets to the event, so make sure you see the details at the end of the post to be in with a chance of winning!
A cool, contemporary Sunbeam Studios wedding for Katy and Simon. Ombre pink hair, a Charlie Brear dress and a Sunday Roast feast for this unique and meaningful Jew-Ish celebration with neon pink details.
I’m so pleased to finally be featuring this fabulous modern wedding today that I planned last summer. Katy and Simon were a cool, contemporary couple and I love that this wedding reflects that in every detail. From the meaningful ‘Jew-Ish’ ceremony, to Katy’s amazing ombre pink hair to the roast dinner feast (despite it being August) and the first dance in trainers it was so great working with them as they put their personalities into every element of the day for their Sunbeam Studios wedding.
