The humble place name has come a long way and it’s the small details like well designed place names that guests will cherish and will bring your wedding together. I’ve seen a lot of really interesting place names and they won’t all be right for your wedding. But there’s so much out there and ways … More 5 Ways with Place Names
I’ve been researching a lot more into trends for 2018 and thought I’d help out fellow wedding suppliers & brides to be with a quick list & some photo inspo. Of course, there’s a Pinterest board for you too. Ultraviolet – the hottest colour of the year. We did a whole post on this last … More 5 Big wedding trends for 2018

First blog post of 2018! And it’s not so much a blog post as a bit of an external collection of thoughts and ideas and feelings. New year is always such a weird time with all the ‘new year, new me’ (bullshit). I’ve always found it a really odd time of year, but this year … More Well hey 2018!
Slightly less glamorous than Kirsty Allsop’s. But all the same I thought I’d share some little bits and bobs I’d handmade this festive season. Not only do handmade elements add a personal touch, but let’s face it they are a great money-saver too. I normally go ALL IN on Christmas wrapping, starting with a minimum … More Jen’s Handmade Christmas
I know I did a shout out a couple of weeks ago to some small, inspirational crafts people, but with Christmas looming SO close around the corner I wanted to share some gifts I’ve bought from small businesses this year.
