April 23rd, 2018|

So we have the ring, the venue, the dress but what was next on the list? FOOD! The women may talk about the dress and the men about just how funny the best man’s speech really was, but the food is the one thing that is ALWAYS discussed at length by all who attend.

Wedding Themes: Yes or No? | UK Wedding Blog

October 18th, 2017|

Carina & Zeyad’s wedding had lots of rustic bohemian charm, which complemented the Riding School at Calke Abbey perfectly! Image by Dale Weeks Photography. Theme weddings are like Marmite; some people love them, some people hate them. It is such a broad topic that a wedding can range from being ‘vintage’ themed, with classy and glamorous decor, or ‘pastel’ themed, like you saw in Tom & Andrea’s wedding last week, to Disney themed; which is right at the other end of the ‘theme wedding’ scale.
