Happy Easter. I just wanted to inspire you with these lovely pictures and I couldn’t help but post this cute chick which symbolises the start of Spring.
Easter is a great time to show off colour so don’t be afraid at looking at a variety, it really can work. These spring florals, macaroons and bridal party outfits really work together.

Well last year Tangerine Tango was the colour of the year. This year we welcome Emerald Green a ‘lively, radiant lush colour that oozes elegant and beauty’ says Pantone. In this post I want to show how you can incorporate this colour naturally into your wedding using plants such as succulents (which I have fallen in love with) to make a beautiful emerald medley.
This large succulent wall was created by a bride for her ceremony backdrop. All the plants were home grown for a year which includes succulents and aloe vera and were attached to a grid. After the wedding everything was able to be replanted. Nice!
Other ways this great plant can be used to create subtle emerald green touches can be seen here. Hope you like.

Oh I do love the Oscars with all the glitz and glamour it brings and this year was no exception as a lot of the actresses seemed to have taken their style directly from the Bridal catwalks.
Bridal Trend 2013: Big is Beautiful and Silver Linings star Jennifer Lawrence showed this off well in Dior Haute Couture.

Anne Hathaway wearing Prada turned heads literally with her sexy back and plain front.

Razzle, dazzle and embellish is exactly what Halle Berry did in Versace along with Jessica Chastian in Armane Prive. Both women symbolized a decade and worked it well.
And I couldn’t not mention Amy Adams who also wore a beautiful soft statement dress by Oscar de la Renta. So if you are after the Princess look for this year don’t be scared it’s very much in.

A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting event designer extraordinaire Preston Bailey, a man whose work I have admired since I started my own business a few years ago. Well known for his elaborate designs I was very excited to hear that he was tying the knot and eager to find out what he and his partner would come up with for their own special event.
On the top floor of the Empire State Building at the stroke of midnight Preston did not disappoint making a jaw stopping entrance under a 12 ft tall sculpture of a bridal gown that had been custom created by designer and guest Reem Acra.
With King Kong as the main theme guests were greeted by a king kong statue and scenes of King Kong climbing skycrapers on video projection screens as well as thousand upon thousands of white flowers.

Congratulations Preston & Theo!
Last week I had the pleasure of exhibiting at 1 Marylebone and it just wouldn’t be right to not show the stand we created for the event.
For any wedding the ceremony décor is a real opportunity to wow your guests, so I decided to show off a real eye catching bamboo canopy (popular for destination weddings) with one of my favourite flowers gypsophila.
A structure like this really can give your guests something beautiful to focus their eyes on when you say ‘I do’, and is one of a number of structures that would be available to you for a destination wedding.
However if you are having a wedding in the UK why not look out for venues with a licensed outdoor structure or enlist the help of a good florist who will create a structure for you to have your outside wedding done by a celebrant.
This week I had the busy task of exhibiting at 1 Marylebone in London which was a sponsored event by Wedding Magazine, and as always I took this opportunity to meet other suppliers exhibiting as well as meeting lovely couples.
On my adventure I had the pleasure in meeting Emma from Illustries who provides alternative memorable ways to capture your wedding photographs.
Their Celeb magazine idea was the one item that stood out for me. So if you love to read celebrity gossip magazines why not use your wedding images to make your very own Celeb magazine that you can send to your guests as a little thank you after the wedding? It comes in a handy handbag size and it’s a great way of sharing the best bits of your day in a magazine format. Nice!
Another great find was to bump into Borrowed Blue who no longer do stationery but are solely concentrating on lovely items that can make your wedding unique. These lovely plates can be used to make a highly original table plan. Just write guest names on each plate , thread with ribbon to coordinate with your reception and display for all your guests to admire. After the wedding simply wash and enjoy for many years to come.
I had the pleasure of going along to London’s Top Drawer this week to see the newest product launches, cutting edge designs and must have products for 2013.
Focusing on stationery for my visit I found this fabulous Save The Date postcard from Timbergram. Its made completely from wood and is inspired by the original postcards of the early 1900s.
You can stick it in an envelope but if you want your special celebration to really stand out from the rest of the post just put a stamp on it and post it just as it is.
Another stationery card that stood out for me was the cracker cards, which really get your guests celebrating with a bang. Originally made just for Christmas they have now evolved to make celebration bottles and favours for weddings. Check the video here to get a better idea.
Finally if you want something that your guests can have sitting on their desk reminding them of your special event. Why not try the pop out cards which feature wedding cakes, english roses or a vase of flowers amongst others. All you have to do is simply pop out the parts and slot them together to create the item. Each pop out card comes with a greeting card for postage.
