Rings are exchanged 💍 and we love to make sure we capture this significant moment for you 🎥
The best thing about having a Humanist ceremony is you can say exactly WHAT YOU FEEL! 🥰
Other ceremonies can be one dimensional with set vows and words from the officiate... Pretty boring right? 🤷🏻♀️ -
With a Humanist ceremony, the words are centred around YOU; YOUR love story, YOUR thoughts and feelings towards marriage, YOUR personal promises to your partner 😍 what could be better than that?! -
And if your guests are anything like me and love hearing the gossip and inside scoop of your relationship, they will absolutely love being part of this style of wedding and being in on your inside jokes, funny couple quirks and pet peeves with each other that they may not have been aware of before 😂
Bare in mind, it's not just the words that can say how you feel! You can choose symbolic acts and music that reflect your feelings towards each other and put that extra personal stamp on the day too! 🎉🎵
So why not drop me a message if this sounds right up your street and we can start planning the day of dreeeeeeams! 💘💕😘 -

👰🏽 BRIDAL FASHION 👰🏽
We know how important it is that you find a wedding gown that not only looks like it was made for you, but also reflects the theme and style of your day.
One of the articles in our brand new wedding magazine discusses the bridal fashions through the ages - from the roaring 20s to sophisticated 60s.
We hope this gives you inspiration for your gown, or helps you find the perfect gown for your vintage wedding 💒
Come see us at the @marriottpreston Wedding Fayre where we will be offering exclusive discounts if you book us for your special day 💕
We have kindly been allowed to sell on the day which means you can go home with a selection of brownies 🤗
We will have chocolate chip, biscoff, kinder bar and Terry's chocolate orange (cc: @feeding_lancashire). AND there will be ONE exclusive brownie tower made up of over 30 brownies available to buy on the day 🍫🤯 This event is free entry and there is parking on site 🙌🏻
It feels like forever since I did a regular old Friday intro so here we are! If you’ve been following us from the beginning (a massive thank you!!) you may already know most of these but I’m gonna try and come up with new things! - Contrary to what this picture depicts I am definitely not a hat person! I’ve never been able to wear hats and feel pretty stupid in them but somehow this day in the desert I was feeling it 😂 and while this is my favorite picture of me ever (thanks @carleyjaynephotography) I’ve never been brave enough to wear it again! - when I was younger I wanted to study law. Mainly because I was obsessed with 80’s and 90’s courtroom dramas! After briefly studying law in college and realizing it was a LOT of studying case files and precedents and not so much breaking Jack Nicholson in the witness stand I realized I actually wanted to be a lawyer in a movie, rather than a real lawyer! - the worst part about leaving London and moving to the US (which I did 5 years ago) was that I no longer get to do Wednesday night dinners with my brother, which mainly involved us drinking too much wine and quoting Barney Stinson at each other.
- Even after 5 years I still struggle with finding the right words for things sometimes and frequently confuse everyone with my Britishisms!
- my passion for design and creativity started when I was a kid and used to build elaborate villages for my barbies and sylvanian families (do they still exist?!) out of cardboard boxes with real carpet and wall paper and sofas stuffed with cotton balls! Now I just get to do it on a larger scale!
If we haven’t chatted before tell me something fun about you! And cheers to the weekend! 🌞
Feeling super grateful for all the love my business has been getting this week. Thank you universe!! 🔥
Working long hours at my day job, and with the help of my wife, holding down the business at home.
This week I had two new wedding inquires including my first for a queer couple in 2021!! I was invited to be the DJ for a wedding vendor event with @theevergreenpdx next month.
Two corporate gigs, one with @speed_rack on Monday, also at Evergreen!
Stoked for all these new opportunities. I’m working harder than I have in my life balancing my day job, my marriage + my business, but I’m so grateful it’s all working!
Thank you thank you thank you!
Appreciate all the support + let’s keep it going!

Next up for Molly... this fabulous little wedding fair organised by @turquoize_strawberry_designs. Derek will be outside showing Molly off in all her finery. I will be inside with loads of ideas ready for a chat... The event is free entry with complimentary hot drinks & shortbread, there is free parking and children are welcome. Please feel free to share away.
Talk about the most dreamy tablescapes and cocktails I’ve ever seen! Also, who else would rather have a cheese cutting over a cake cutting!? 🙋🏻♀️ Haha, if you know me well, you know I’m not a huge sweets person, but I may or may not have an unhealthy addiction to all things cheese! I admit it’s my weakness... but you have to admit this gorgeous couple never made 🧀 look so good! Am I right!? !
Oh, how I love these two! I was just realizing while editing that the three of us met 20 years ago already! Who'da thunk we'd be hanging out doing photoshoots in the snow 20 years later? - Trever & Mikeisha's Snowy Adventure preview -

Yesterday’s shoot was magic and I want to share the whole thing but practicing restraint and just giving you this sneak peek for now! @colibri.blooms absolutely killed it with the florals and this minimal acacia bouquet was so modern and fresh. Also, the rings of my dreams from @saintmae_, sending these back last night just about broke my heart! Thank you so much to this dream team for bringing their 🔥, love you all. More to come soon! .
One of the styles Jen created at the @rockthefrockcheshire bridal styling event 🖤
We are seeing messy texture with groved crowns for this season! Who would love this for a bridal or bridesmaid look?!! You could team this with a half vine, an edgy crown or a few celestial pins! See what @gloriousbyheidi has on offer 💕
If ever I needed confirmation that I'm in the right job, it's now. With everything going on with Alex I am missing work, my own time and being able to switch off and create.
I've been lucky that I have managed to turn my hobby into a job, a career. And it's been bloody hard work, so tiring, frustrating but it's been worth it and I am so proud of what I've achieved.
And at almost four years in, I've hit a little bump in the road but I'll be back in 2020. With bells on.
Only ONE day away from our Ella Rosa by @kennethwinston debut! We are head over heels for this dove gray colored dress! 🥰 we still have some availability for this weekend, make sure you get an appointment!
