Here are Bride, Alisons top tips on how to create the wedding YOU want!


“Our wedding was exactly what we wanted. Styling was colourful but simple. I love tulips so was set on these as my flowers. I pinned a lot of rustic type things but decided to put my own spin on things with colourful ribbon instead of twine and string.
Sheryl just got us. We already loved her style of photography so was so looking forward to seeing the final images. She’s easy to get along with and knows exactly how to get the best out of you. Leon and I don’t do romantic very well as we tend to laugh but we have some lovely photos, you’d never know we cracked up 2 seconds later!
I love tulips. My bouquet was white tulips then each bridesmaids had a different colour tulip. My flower girls had a basket of 1 tulip in each colour and gypsophila and the men had 1 tulip buttonhole thatch their colour. Leon had two white tulips. Our centrepieces were small crates from ikea which I stained as they looked too new, filled with white tulips and gypsophila. We also had jars of gypsophila lining the aisle.
Do it your way. Don’t worry about what other people think, if you want it do it, if you don’t want to invite that person, don’t. People want you to have your day and will enjoy it with you!”
