We wanted the day to feel very personal and to represent us and our families. So on the guest book table we put up photographs of our families on their wedding days in vintage looking silver frames. We also put up pictures of us as children on my Nan’s mirror in the evening (which we’d used to stick on the table plan earlier in the day). We also put little quotes about love and marriage on the backs of everyone’s name cards on the tables. And I also made a sign for the sweet/cake table that said ‘Let them eat cake’.

I really enjoyed planning everything really, though it was stressful. We loved doing the table plans and choosing the music. Plus planning the service and what music and readings we wanted.

My advice to other planning brides would be take your time, enjoy it. It all goes past so quickly. Don’t sweat the small stuff – it really doesn’t matter if things go wrong. My bouquet only arrived as I walked into the church – but it wouldn’t have mattered if it hadn’t because what was important was marrying each other. Don’t forget what the whole point of the day is. Honestly, nobody notices when things go wrong. And keep your sense of humour”.

Such great advice about not sweating the small stuff, it is so true that things may go wrong on the day, as long as you have a level head, as well as some great people around you to sort things out then it should all work out fine. I do love how relaxed David and Gemma look, and wow how incredible is Gemma’s Claire Pettibone gown, that back view is just stunning.

Thanks so much to David and Gemma for sharing their day with us and to Lisa Dawn Photography for capturing the day superbly.

Michelle xx

So this is the #wedding show that gets everyone talking, I'm hoping to make the trip to #london for it next weekend. Anyone going who fancies meeting up for coffee/cocktails and a natter, hit up my inbox, let's chat. #weddingplanner #weddingplanning #weddingstyling #mostcurious
It's Friday whoop whoop! Balloon arches are cool again thanks to @houselarsbuilt #wedding #weddingplanner
Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.
