wedding inspiration

cakes, flowers, decor & more

 

During my work, I see and photograph so many beautiful themes, gorgeous details and incredibly inventive ideas at weddings, that I thought it was only fair to have a special place on the website to share them with you. I’ll be regularly blogging about some of my favourite details from weddings in Dorset, Somerset and beyond, both current and in the past, and why they particularly caught my eye. I’ll also be featuring some of my favourite wedding suppliers, showcasing their best work.

I do hope that if you’re planning your wedding, this area will be helpful to you and give you some great inspiration for your own wedding theme! Don’t forget, I regularly post images to Pinterest as well, so don’t forget to go follow me there, as I have a dedicated boards for all areas of planning your wedding. And, my Instagram feed is a wonderful place to get even more ideas!

Wedding Cake Toppers: Inspiration

I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of wedding cake toppers. The generic shop bought ones - you know the ones, the figurines -  scream 1980's naff. So, if you're going to go for cake toppers, you need to embrace the innate kitschness of them and really have...

To Theme or Not to Theme? : Inspiration

Say 'wedding themes' to many people, and you'll see that involuntary wrinkling of those nose - yes, the 'bad smell' face. Themeing your wedding is seen in some quarters as somewhat tacky, something on the 'not at my wedding' list. However, what people don't realise is...

Personalising Your Wedding: Inspiration

It's very often the case, these days, that couples want to personalise their wedding in some way - and why wouldn't you, after all? Who really wants an 'out of the box' wedding day, the same as the people before you and the people afterwards, in your venue? Weddings...

Happy Sunday morning to you! Are you feeling a little chirpier now that it feels like spring is finally just about to get going? If you're anything like me, you're truly enjoying the blossom starting to bloom, the perennials peeping through in the garden, and some...

Books as Wedding Decor: Inspiration

I LOVE seeing old, beautiful books used as wedding decor. For me, this is a theme that will never go out of style, because how can something so beautiful and with so much value not only visually but intrinsically, ever be passe? If you've ever been to my house, you'll...
