Deco inspired London wedding…

If you are planning a London wedding then you’ll gonna love this Art Deco inspired bridal shoot set at Stanley Halls – a Grade II listed Edwardian arts venue.

Where did you get your inspiration from? 

When photographer Cat Arwel asked me to collaborate on this shoot, she had already secured the unique London venue, and when I visited Stanley Halls I understood why she was so drawn to the location – the fabulous features such as marble stairs, theatre seating and beautiful jade tiles made for such an inspiring backdrop. I knew straight away that these elements would lend themselves to a Deco inspired concept, translated in a modern way for a stylish couple. The jade tiles were the start of the distinctive contemporary colour scheme and the introduction of polished metals, velvet and curved accents complemented the venue’s aesthetic.

Brighton elopement inspiration with an incredible sequin jumpsuit…

Brighton Elopement with Sequins…

Ahhh lovely Brighton! Brighton always holds a special part of my heart after I got engaged on the pier 12 years ago.  So when this cool, Brighton elopement shoot landing in my inbox I knew I had to feature it. Plus who doesn’t love a Rosa Bloom sequin jumpsuit – I know if I could do my wedding all over again this would defo be on my hit list! Over to Kate- Wedding Planner, Consultant and On-the-day Sidekick from Jump The Broom to tell us more…

Kate from Jump The Broom…

I dreamt up the concept for ‘About Last Night’ after spotting Rosa Bloom’s incredible sequin jumpsuits on Instagram; I knew immediately that they would be a hit with brides and grooms that really wanted to throw out the rulebook and the rest, they say, is history! I wanted this elopement to feel care-free and still totally original, it needed to be something a couple could literally throw together in a couple of months whilst still having a bold and beautiful style at its heart.

I’d met Chloe Mary earlier in the year and couldn’t imagine anybody else shooting with such a candid, sexy and edgy style; similarly, I knew that the vibrant and untamed blooms of Jane from Dove and Myrtle, as well as the forever-original and gorgeous creations of

Just got engaged? Where to start with wedding planning…

Where to start with Wedding Planning?

So you’re engaged? Well, congratubloodylations are in order we think! I hope you celebrated accordingly, whether that was a romantic takeaway as just the two of you or a big boozer with all your bests. But after round 1 of the celebrations are over (I say round 1 because they’re just the beginning, really) where do you start with planning a wedding? Excitement can quickly turn to panic, but don’t worry – we’ve got it covered. Here are our top tips on starting wedding planning!

Work out your priorities

It may seem like quite a heavy task to start with, but working out your priorities as a couple and individuals is crucial in wedding planning. Believe me, doing it early can solve you a whole host of problems down the line. Sit down and candidly and honestly discuss things such as: What’s the most important part of the wedding for you? What couldn’t you go without at your wedding? What have you disliked about other weddings you’ve been to in the past? How crucial is x to you? If they’re truly how you feel, there are no stupid answers in this. Not even when your partner says the most important thing to them is a meaningful, personalised ceremony, and you say yours is a hot air balloon-shaped bar.

Where did you get your inspiration from?

For over a year now I have been taking small steps within my personal and business life to reduce my impact on this beautiful planet. I have made numerous changes which have dramatically reduced my waste, plastic consumption, and my product miles by supporting local companies as opposed to large conglomerates. This felt like a positive and fantastic start but, I couldn’t help the feeling I could do more. From here an idea began to form – I wanted to help encourage as many people as I could to start taking small steps to a more eco-friendly/ethical future. But more important than this, I wanted to show everyone how easy it can be!! 

My love for the ocean and beaches is what spurred this gradual change in my attitude towards reducing plastic, waste and the ethical repercussions of many products which we use daily. So I realised that combining these two things, the beauty of the ocean and my tenacity for waste reduction I had at my fingertips an idea which, to my knowledge has never before been

How To Prepare For A Boiling Hot Wedding Day

Hot Summer Wedding Day Tips

Sure, your wedding’s going to be cool af because you’re cool, but is the weather going to be cool as well? Most people dream of a scorching hot day for their Summer wedding, with visions of idyllic outdoor ceremonies under a bright blue sky and light summer nights boozing and schmoozing. However – with the British weather as it all too often is – very few people actually prepare for extreme heat, which can make your wedding day super uncomfortable both for you, and your guests! If your day is set to be an absolute scorcher, here’s our tips for a boiling hot wedding day:

Have your wedding ceremony under shade

It’s super important to be shady at your Summer wedding. The sun feels lovely on your skin for a bit, but after half an hour sitting/standing and sweating in it it’s less than ideal. This is especially true for young children, those with sensitive skin and the elderly. Consider having your ceremony underneath in some woodland, or under a canopy. Alternatively, why not provide some parasols for guests to put up when it all gets too much? Check out our marquee and tent page HERE for some ideas.

Another great way to prepare for a hot outdoors wedding is to arrange your aisle and seats pointing away from the …
