We've all seen the editorial images of a bride wearing a traditional white dress with a cool black leather biker jacket slewn over the top. This stunning white lace biker lends a little of that edginess whilst still remaining real life wedding appropriate. Available here at Net a Porter.
Looking for a fun hen or stag party idea? Why not check out WW2 spy themed The Bletchley (on London's Kings Road) and spend some time deciphering enigma codes, whilst they gather intel on your scent and flavour preferences, that will then be used to create your own personalised cocktail recipe. The bonus you can then serve your top secret cocktail on your wedding day.
I adore the bespoke leather pouches and trinket boxes at Anya Hindmarch. It's possible to have them personalised with your own handwriting or even a sketched image. What a sweet and original thank you gift for your wedding party.
These beautiful blossoms (also know as Sakura in their native Japan) are said to represent the fragility and beauty of life. The blossoms are rather short lived but at their most spectacular during March and April. I've put together a Sakura Pinspiration board offering some ideas on how to style these ethereal blossoms in a Spring wedding context.
Floral embellishment continues to be a major inspiration for bridal wear this year, how dreamy is this gown from Luisa Beccaria (showing at Milan fashion week).
Mindfulness has become a bit of a buzzword in recent years but is something that can serve you well on your wedding day. I'm afraid the old adage of it all passes by so quickly does often prove true. So after months (sometimes years) of planning, make sure you take a moment, breathe, take it all in and enjoy every single moment.
Headspace is a great and super convenient resource if you wish to learn/incorporate some Mindfulness practices into your every day life.
I love the crisp, fresh, zesty feel of the Pantone colour of the year Greenery.
It is said to represent new beginnings, which feels particularly apt for a wedding.
Check out my Pinterest here for some styling inspiration.
I am hearting this 'Perry' lace asymetric top by Rime Arodaky from Net a Porter. Designed to be worn with the matching crop and maxi skirt, perfect for the understated yet on trend bride. Bonus points for the warmth factor of a sleeve as we head into winter wedding season.
I have been sampling a fair amount of chocolate lately (all in the name of wedding favour research - honest) and can't get over how beautiful these rhubarb and custard confections from Paul A Young are.
