Veil or no veil? Will you be wearing one?

Face-covering veils without doubt are making a comeback. I’ve seen more veils this year than I’ve ever seen and so it’s got me thinking about whether wearing a veil is simply just another form of wedding fashion or if it’s a little more symbolic than that. Read more…

Genuine love and loveliness doesn't need to compete with commercial love

He’s not perfect by Bob Marley

I hear a lot of wedding readings. A LOT. Sometimes, in just one wedding alone I can hear three readings! I also hear a lot of the same readings, but do you know what? I don’t mind one bit, because I honestly believe that if a reading resonates with you, then you should have it […] Read more…

I’m slightly regretting writing this post already, because I really don’t know what made me think I could possibly whittle down hundreds of wedding blogs that I love and admire to ten measly choices.

How to pimp your ceremony space the Ikea way

Do you know what? I bloody love Ikea. I don’t care what anyone says, there is something in Ikea for everyone, even the bespoke-loving, vintage-hunting, furniture people out there! Ikea may make you think of flat-pack furniture and all the lame jokes that follow, but I’m telling you people, Ikea is so much more about […] Read more…
