A fascination with everything seaside and beach themed started the business for us, so I thought it appropriate to cover this favourite theme of mine.
I’ll set the scene…the sun is shimmering off the cool blue sea, a beautiful arch of seashells awaits the arrival of bride and groom, sun-kissed children carry garlands of starfish whilst a choir of magical mermaids sing heavenly tunes…oh hang on, got a bit carried away.
That’s not really my sort of thing if I’m honest… There are some beautiful beach destination weddings but how about a more realistic beach theme? One that could be used at any venue, including good old wet ’n’ windy Blighty and not cost as much as your mortgage?

I believe when it comes to weddings you can find inspiration in most things, some people love romance and classical inspiration, whilst others love the soft approach that is rustic country. People are really finding their inspiration anywhere, that one perfect item of jewellery or a hair piece could inspire a vintage theme. This is exactly why I love weddings these days, people are not scared to push themselves creatively to make that perfect finish or theme.
There has been a lot of talk recently in the world of wedding blogging about the importance of how “blog worthy” your wedding should be (or shouldn’t be). It’s a subject I sometimes hear discussed between wedding suppliers as well, particularly in the quest to get themselves featured. I actually read a quote in an interview the other day from another planner stating that they didn’t worry about industry trends, as they focus instead on making each wedding bespoke to the client themselves.
For me, the Springtime wedding conjures up bursts of beautiful colour and and fresh flowers with masses of gorgeous details after the winter gloom.
I really wanted to write my next guest post for LoveLuxe Blog about my little girl Flora’s first birthday party, because I’ve never had to do one myself before (!) and I love to help plan and style all sorts of milestone events, parties and celebrations as well as weddings – which is where the bulk of my work usually is each year.
