Real Life Castle in the Snow Wedding








When my friend Elaine asked me to help her with her wedding 
(just 12 weeks before the big day), 
I must admit I was a little daunted, and wondered if we could pull it off! 

I have to say that it was one of my most favourite weddings I have ever attended as a guest or a stylist!

The reason for this? 

Elaine was a complete BrideNilla! 

Nothing, Nilch, Zero, bothered her... She didn't really care if the flowers weren't right, or they dyed her hair an odd colour - she just wanted to marry her man. That was the most important thing and everything else was incidental! 
(Luckily, he felt the same!)
The only thing that she was quite certain on was that she wanted snow - 
Not blizzards... just a smidgen, to make the castle looked beautiful.
I said I'd see what I could do ;-)
I said a little prayer and sure enough He made it beautiful! 
Just look!!! 


It was to be a weekend wedding, based at Woodhall Spa Manor 
with the ceremony just down the road at Tattershall Castle. 

It was kind of odd, being a guest AND a venue stylist... but once I had checked into my beautiful "Tiffany Suite" on the Friday morning, it seemed bearable!!! 

I pottered about The Manor all day - decorating the rooms and 
then went off to the castle to get everything ready there... 

The next morning, Richard was up early cooking us all a tremendous fry up (fried bread to die for!) and wonderful, wholesome, home baked bread 
from the deli in town - YUM! 
I needed this, as I'd been up until 1.30am, sewing Arlo the dog's tuxedo 
(We had to transform it from a halloween Dracula doggie suit to 
Perfectly Posh Pup wedding suit!). 
One of the silver satin chair sashes was sacrificed for the sake of pup fashion, Here's a picture of it waiting for him to wear it! 
Those gorgeous killer heels were Elaines in case you were wondering! 
Being the nosey type of guest that I am, I decided to pop into the bridal suite to see how Elaine was getting on... 
Hair and make up ladies Dena and Faye were there making everyone look gorgeous...
Dena was a bit of a dab hand with the camera too - 
look at these lovely photos she took when Elaine was getting ready..

Flowers by Shirley Dee Designs





Then we all had a blubbing moment when dad came into the room and said 
"Darling, you look beautiful", 
(Which she did in those killed silver heels and little fur frou frou shrug). 

Then it was time for Fred, their little vintage car,  to whisk them away to the ceremony at Tattershall Castle...


It had snowed... so it was cold...


The Tennyson Quintet played as all the gusts took their seats. 
Guests were encouraged to snuggle up, candles filled the giant fireplaces and cozy blankets were provided too! 

Part two of this lovely wedding will be coming as soon as I get the professional photographs... watch this space...

Concrete custard? How very on trend!

Part two - Colour trends for 2015 weddings.

Loving the fact that custard yellow and glacier grey are two of the colours forecast to trend in weddings for 2015 - 

I adore this combination and have been searching around to put together a mood board to inspire you all. 

Just have to wait for a bride to choose these colours now! 

This colour scheme is fabulous for a Spring, woodland theme wedding, but sits equally as well in the urban jungle...

Hope you like this collection (from Pinterest)...
Spray paint is my best friend right now - 
love these old frames that have been revamped




Forsythia, twigs and Lemons in glass vases make a strong contemporary statement - 
I would have added lots of daisies to this too




Very dapper Groomsmen



Chevron invitations & decorations



just look at the detailing on this cake - beautiful! 


and again - home made lemonade as favours or
make it more grown up with egg flip 
or cups of jelly and custard!

Wedding colour trends 2015

Over the next few weeks we shall be picking and choosing our favourite pictures from the internet to show you how to work 2015's top trends and colours...

Here's the first...

MINT

We've chosen to mix it with pink and further down the page with pink and gold. 
But it also looks good with silver, blush and lavender, 


here's what we like so far...

Arrive in a pretty pink converted Herbie

Dress your bridesmaids in floaty mint green with pink corsages...
For more mature bridesmaids think of having corsages instead of posies, 
that can be worn on their dress, bag or wrist


Light the reception with paper lanterns and pom poms...
For the best effect use a lot in a small area rather than spreading them too thinly around the room. 


and serve your cakes on vintage china in a mismatch of pinks and mint...


Cakes are tall for 2015 and mismatched - Lots of different sizes and flavours 
- placed on tiered shelving or dedicated cake tables



or add some golds or silver and you have another 
completely bang on trend look ...

send out the invites to set the sparkling scene...



Urns are going to feature a lot in next years weddings decor- 
all shapes, sizes, colours and textures - we love these gold ones



Dress tables and chairs with gold accents, sequins and chiffons


Have a ribbon/sash backdrop made in your colours 
for behind your top table, gift or cake table


Add edible glitter to cake pops


and serve mini moets as favours 
or have them as a warm up on the morning of the wedding 
just for you and your girls 


Go tall with your cake - four and five tiers are predicted to be big for next year as are painted and "gilded" cakes

However you do it - 
we think that mint, pink and gold are a real winning combination! 
Pop back in May to see one of our real weddings, 
where the bride has chosen these colours to see what we do for her! 
Here's a taste of what'to come...
