The drinks reception was one of my favourite parts of our wedding day. The nerves from the ceremony had gone, we had taken all of the family pictures and I was excited to properly chat to our friends and family (and drink a glass of fizz)! I remember being filled with so much happiness when I walked through to the little walled garden and could see everyone playing the lawn games, drinking Pimms and laughing in the sun. The String Duo… View Post

My wedding hair and makeup was provided by Blowout Ibiza, a mobile hair and beauty service in London and Ibiza. I had worked with them a lot in my previous job at bareMinerals and so it felt only right to have them on my wedding day! I had the gorgeous makeup artist Lois and talented hair stylist Jazmin making me bridal beautiful that morning and they were both so friendly, calm and professional that even though I hadn’t had a trial, I… View Post

In the end I was pleased that Marc and I had a long engagement as it took me longer than I expected to find my wedding dress.

For me, perfect eyelashes mean ones that look fluttery, long and full, without looking too fake or heavy. And after having my first full set of SVS by Nouveau Lashes lash extensions, I can stop my search, for these lash extensions transformed my life… LASH TREATMENTS I HAVE TRIED The first treatment I started with… View Post

At first I really enjoyed planning a wedding. Time was mostly spent browsing Pinterest and reading wedding magazines, getting excited talking about all of the things we could do. Also because we were having a 2.5 year engagement, the pressure was truly off. Half way through, the planning picked up as we booked our venue, caterers and I started trying on wedding dresses. It was still fun but we also began to realise just how expensive all of these things… View Post
