Primrose Hill Farm oozes opportunity and it was the perfect backdrop for a four seasons shoot. I always feel theres a lot of pressure on couples to create a theme for their wedding day – whats your colour scheme is on the tip of everyones tongues. A seasonal direction creates a wonderful opportunity in my eyes. In a world where everything is available most of the year round, the four seasons would actually do you a favour. Using seasonal flowers and food is key to ensure that you’re not only avoiding spending unnecessary money where it wasn’t needed (by trying to get out of season flowers at a premium price!) but it would enable your suppliers to select the best quality for you as they will have the luxury of availability on their side.
Choosing your wedding day colour scheme is one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make early on in your planning process. As soon as you’ve set your venue, colour scheme is up there on the list that requires a big tick! Knowing your colour scheme will make all of the other detail decisions easier – invites, flowers etc. Image: Diana McGregor If you’re still struggling – here is a guide that I found in Martha Stewart Weddings to help you!

This post is all about the best of 2016! I feel its important to celebrate, to reflect and take stock as another year closes. The main wedding season drew to a close a couple of months ago.

It is common knowledge that finding one bridesmaid dress to suit all is almost impossible. Luckily, if this is your wish then companies such as Two Birds are a godsend with over 15 different ways to tie one dress! At a recent wedding at Soho Farmhouse all of the bridesmaids wore different dresses – they looked stunning so I thought I’d explore this idea more. Each girl had different body shapes, skin tones, hair colour and personal tastes….there was even a baby bump!
