A summer wedding. Sue and Steve chose the Crown at Ampney Brook because they loved the laid-back, relaxed feel of the venue. Further, the location was ideal for their celebration. It boasted ample inside space to celebrate and enough outdoor space with a beautiful little bridge for those fabulous photos.
Meeting Lucy and Sam at the Kings Head Hotel. was like meeting old friends – we’d communicated so much in the previous weeks. I had a good grasp of the vision they wanted to create and had many samples of the colour tones in the fabric they’d chosen with which to create a gorgeous rose gold wedding theme.
We had the honour and pleasure of working with David and Steph, who let us loose to create magic on their wedding day. I loved that they felt confident in wanting to follow their passions and creating a decor that was true and authentic to them.
Of late I’ve been giving some thought to two questions I’ve seen asked in various Facebook groups, that relate to second marriage wedding dress etiquette:
All the occasions we celebrate are riven with traditions. Easter has the eggs and the bunny, Christmas has Father Christmas/ Santa Claus – and more besides - depending on the nation. And, of course, every family puts their own spin on these regular calendar markers. And weddings are no exception.

“What is a charger plate?” That’s a good question. And, unless you're in the wedding or events world, or do a lot of entertaining, it's possible you'll have no idea what they are.
When you got engaged and started planning your wedding, everything in your world was full of love and excitement about your big day. Your wedding prep would have been in full swing. Searching Pinterest and other online sources for inspirations and ideas for your dress, shoes, veil, venue and venue décor. Then contacting and chatting to suppliers about your dreams and your vision for your big day. That was then. And this is now. And now we’re in the grip of the Covid-19 virus pandemic and your plans have been thrown into disarray.
So, you’re planning a wedding or other large gathering and you want something a bit different. Either in place of a modern beat combo or disco – or to bridge the gap between the end of the wedding breakfast and the wedding singer starting their set. Have you considered giant garden games? They might be just what you’re looking for. Who doesn’t love Connect Four or Jenga? Well they’re even more fun in outsize form.
