I don’t know about you, but I am beyond gutted that there won’t be a new series of Game of Thrones for ages. It’s the best thing to happen to TV in years, and I watch it on repeat – no shame. I know the story like the back of Jamie Lannister’s hand. Or something more reliable…
There’s an army of die hard fans out there who’d love to get involved in a bit of Westerosi role play, so what if I said to you grooms that you could have a GoT stag do from the experts at StagWeb? Visit the King’s Road and Winterfell? You’d be sending them a raven (or email, if you insist) to confirm you’re on your way, right? Right!!
“I’ve always hated the bells. They ring for horror. A dead king, a city under siege…” – Lord Varys
“A wedding.” – Tyrion Lannister
While you may be gambling with your happiness and life where a Game of Thrones wedding is concerned, you should be safe at a stag do. Party hard as you mean to go on! Here are some of the brilliant packages on offer: (more…)
Today, I have another styled shoot from Ruby and Stardust for you. Queens of the fairytale themed wedding ideas, Shannon and Georgina have put together a shoot where Pocahontas and John Smith get married! The styling is superb – check out the divine dress with its dusty pink colour and marabou feathers! – and the elements are easily replicated for your own big day.
The Story of the Day by Georgina
We were super lucky to be able to use the grounds of The Great Barn for our Pocahontas shoot – it has acres and acres of woodlands, lakes and greenland, which were the perfect setting for the woodland setting. We got back to nature and used lots of gorgeous autumnal colours in the flowers and natural feathers to keep in with the Pocahontas styling.
We created a tipi made from wooden branches and covered in flowers for our ceremony backdrop on the lake, and used the areas of natural beauty to capture these stunning images.
Rosey Posey Creations has been featured many a time on the blog, and I absolutely had to share this film with you that shows some of the gorgeous floral headpieces in video format. It’s so nice to see them come alive and see how they might look in real life. And I love the dreamy bluebells in the woods setting – it appeals to my romantic, daydream side!
Director, Carys Watford, tells me,
“In terms of the idea behind the shoot, I wanted to evoke a quintessentially English countryside feel, and the beautiful wood carpeted with bluebells perfectly captured that getting lost in an English wood atmosphere.
“The theme for the film was two young mysterious, carefree girls escaping and enjoying the freedom of the countryside for a day. Flowers played a big role in the film, both with the endless mass of bluebells filling the screen and the gorgeous Rosey Posey Creations floral headbands adorning the girls’ hair – perfect accessories for the spring/summer look.”

A date for the diary for those of you in and around travelling distance of Glasgow on August 9! An alternative wedding fair hurray!! Plus the door fee goes to a local women’s charity, so there’s really no reason to not pop along for wedding goodness, cake, and lots of good will.
The Wonderland Wedding Fayre girls, Katie Malcolmson and Louisa Wood, wanted to create a quirky wedding fayre with lots of fun elements and colour, feeling this was missing in Glasgow.
“We have previous experience styling bridal photoshoots and working at local wedding fayres, as Louisa runs her own bespoke handmade bridal jewellery and accessories business, Eala Jewellery. We’ve handpicked our suppliers and really thought about what new ideas we could bring to the wedding fayre event. Expect something a bit different with lots of fun interior decoration, hand made details and lots of cake! We’ve involved our exhibitors in the making of this wedding fayre, which gives our brides reals examples of their work, so one of our stationers designed our flyers, one of the photographers took our promotion images, and the cake designers are making cake for the afternoon tea.
“There will also be a bridal catwalk and live music featuring covers bands, vocalists, bagpipers, and a performance from a dancing instructor who provides lessons for first dance routines.
“We wanted to organise an event that we were passionate about, and also one that could raise money for a local charity. Supporting local charity is very important to us as both of us work in intensive care as nurses. The wedding fayre is £2 entry on the door, and this will be donated to Glasgow Women’s Aid.
“We look forward to meeting all our lovely customers and beautiful brides-to-be!”
As bump shoots go, this is well outside of the box!! Powder paint and rainbows – it’s incredibly new. We’re seeing it at weddings and engagement shoots, and of course trash the dress shoots, but this is the first time I’ve seen it on a maternity shoot! I love how happy mama-to-be Kat looks, how at ease and at peace she is, and how maternal. The setting is perfect; well you know how chilled Brighton is!
