White Themed Weddings

fdbfbsAs if to offset the growing trend for bright, bold wedding colour schemes, pure white weddings are big news this season. White is a great wedding theme at any time of year, and can create a fresh and classic overall look.

White outfits for the bridal party

Although tradition says that brides should marry in white, most actually wear a shade of ivory or cream on their wedding day. A pure white dress can be very striking, especially when accessorised with silver or black, but be careful if you want to wear pure white as it can be a little stark against some complexions.

Check out the replacement policy

Most wedding car suppliers will have a policy whereby they will replace your chosen car with a suitable alternative if it should break down or be unavailable for another reason. If you are hiring a vintage car it’s more likely that you will need the replacement service than with a modern car, so it’s a good idea to check out the supplier’s replacement and make sure you are as happy

Dos And Don’ts For Wedding Flowers

are one of the most beautiful and visually appealing part of any wedding. From bouquets to centrepieces and beyond, they bring a sense of style, scent and sophistication to a theme and colour scheme. That said, they can be tricky to pull off. So with this in mind, we’ve compiled a handy list of dos and don’ts to help you plan a blooming lovely celebration.


Give your florist a colour palette to work with, rather than insisting on specific flowers. This will allow them to create a stunning design that falls within your budget, since they know how to work around factors such as the time of year and the season, both of which play a key role in the availability, and thus price, of certain blooms.

According to the Selfie Brush – yes, such a thing exists – using flash can flatten your features, so it’s best to use natural light. Head outdoors or perch beside an open window and let the sun shine brightly on your brand new rock. *TIP: avoid fluorescent lights at all costs.


Before snapping, look at your surroundings. The whole world doesn’t need to see your messy bedroom or hair spray collection in the bathroom vanity. Whether you’re getting your pearly whites in the pic or taking a hand-only shot, make sure the
