Greenunions: Tying the knot in Notting Hill by Hannah and Daniel 

I wasn’t happy with my wedding dress so bought a new one a week before the wedding… then ended up wearing both of them!

To All In Tents and Purposes…

If you thought hiring a wedding tent was the preserve of those with large country homes and sweeping lawns, you might be in for a surprise. To all intents and purposes, a tent could be the most flexible wedding venue of all, suitable for every type of wedding from the most outrageously opulent to the most simple and understated.

Peeking through who said what about THE new engagement (when Harry met the gorgeous Meghan) I was intrigued to see a piece about the actual engagement ring written by Arabel Lebrusan, an ethical jeweller on a mission.

I love it when someone looks into these glam celebrity moments from a sharp authentic angle. While we just look at the press photo and check out the new coat, Arabel is studying the ring via a questioning ethical microscope.

I have been a bride once but dressing as a guest is harder.

Its your big day so you are looking beautiful you have been pruned, primped, perfumed, and pampered by a team of professionals.

But let us take a longer view of this picture and focus in on your female guests, (like it or not men just pop on a suite and run their hand through their hair ) which is so unfair I know but it’s the truth.
