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.

Elvis + Priscilla Bridal Shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine…

Priscilla + Elvis….

Earlier this year I styled on a fashion editorial shoot alongside Alex from The Bijou Bride for Rock n Roll Magazine.

Kat and photographer Lisa Devlin wanted to create a Priscilla, 1960’s vibe, bridal shoot at The Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton. As the idea for the shoot developed we decided that you couldnt have a Priscilla without celebrating her partner Elvis… the King of Rock n Roll!

Alex said ‘Approaching the fashion styling for this shoot I wanted to put myself in a modern day Priscilla’s shoes rather than focus on replication. There are Sixties influences throughout but with a contemporary twist. The stunning scalloped lace detailing on the Katya Katya Shehurina illusion dress and the bow details on those incredible Charlotte Mills bags and shoes are undoubtably retro in feel.

It was such a blast to then take a masculine approach with our beautiful model. The King of Rock & Roll has had such a mighty influence on both men and women’s fashion. And of course there just had to be a tassel element. This Otaduy ‘I Do’ embellished leather fringe bridal jacket is all kinds of amazing. It was important to maintain a subtle sass throughout the Elvis aspect so you’ll note touches of lace, elegant heeled sandals and delicate jewels.’
