Christmas wedding at Elmore Court

I don’t know about you but isolation is starting to feel a little like Christmas, nobody seems to know exactly what day it is or what is happening. It’s an uncertain time made better by family close by.

With that being said I thought I’d share a wonderful family that were married at Elmore Court back in December 2019.

It was such a wonderful day and captured so well by Jessica Raphael Photography I couldn’t resist sharing it! Enjoy!

Boho wedding at Kingscote Barn

In light of recent events and a nationwide lockdown I’ve had some extra time on my hands to catch up on images and share some beautiful weddings from 2019 with you all.

First up is the wonderful Elisa and Jamie who had a boho outdoor wedding at the wonderful Kingscote Barn in September 2019. I’ve been wanting to share this wedding in it’s entirety for ages now as it had soooo many gorgeous details, so here it is…

I think you’ll agree looking at those-what a wedding! Love that their dog got to spend it with them too (they hired in a professional dog sitter which Kingscote recommends). The talented Bride, Elisa, made the place settings and vellum menus which worked perfectly with their décor for the day. The replacement of canapes for a grazing board was a big hit too.

I absolutely loved being a part of their day and it was so nice to style Kingscote Barn so differently too!

Beautiful Hyde House wedding

I’ve been meaning to blog for a while now and with the season calming down I thought where better to start than with Bryony & Ollie’s day. On the 7th September these two wonderful people said I do at Hyde House. I absolutely loved being part of their day and so I’ll let the images, as usual, do the talking.

All suppliers credited at the end, enjoy!

Bryony and Ollie designed the stunning stationery which made their day so unique and special to them. So many people commented on it and I’m so glad to say that they’ve since started their own stationery company! Yay! (See link below)

Bryony and Ollie had the full styling service which included all props. They also made use of my faux foliage and we created a hanging arrangement above the top table with the addition of some real foliage. Loved this colour palette and the addition of black!

So many beautiful details! I absolutely loved styling this day for them both.

8th February 2019

I loved working with Jess and Ollie on their day at Kingscote Barn earlier this year. It feels like only yesterday we were chatting about plans for the barn. From start to finish these two were a dream to work with and they didn’t stop smiling on their day. I love these images by Eternal Imaging of their wedding day and had to share them with you all!

Niamh & Chris

Niamh & Chris were married at the picturesque Painswick Church followed by a beautiful reception at Elmore Court. I loved styling their day with colourful boho influences throughout. It was such a joyful wedding to be a part of as you’ll see from the images…

I’m not quite sure where the year went? The last post I wrote was in Feb 2018! I knew it was a busy year but I really should have written more!

So for 2019 I wanted to start off with a bit of escapism as many of us will be feeling a bit blue and seeking some sunshine right now. Last year I went to Croatia and promised to blog the trip and so here it is! I’ll try and keep my words minimal as it’s such a beautiful country the pictures will do the talking but I will link to places I visited and will add those all important tips throughout!



I started my trip in Split and took a walking tour around the city starting at the Golden Gate…


The following morning I woke up early so that I could hike Marjan Forest Park during the sunrise. I didn’t have a set plan or path and intentionally walked wherever I felt like going. I ended up walking for 2 hours until I found a completely private beach! (This was somewhere along the North of the park)



That night I visited Crossfit Split ( Highly recommend them if you do Crossfit!) followed by an evening of dancing and listening to music in the main square.

The following day I took a bus up to Sibenik. Whilst I liked this city I much preferred the vibe of Split. Sibenik had some wonderful sites though…


and a cheeky cat…


From Sibenik I then took a bus the following morning to Skradin. Skradin is a small town and I absolutely loved it. It’s quaint but perfectly formed and the best location for the waterfalls. If (like me) you aren’t keen of hoards of people trying to get the perfect ‘instagram image’ of themselves in the water then you’ll want to get to the waterfalls early.

The first boat leaves at 8am from Skradin and so to get this boat I stayed at an Airbnb in the town (it was lovely!)


The boat ride takes approx 25mins and at 8am I recommend something warm to wrap yourself up in (I was freezing the first day!) There is also a 4km trail that you can do on foot or bike to the falls but as I wanted to get there early on the first day I passed on this.


So here they are- Krka National Park waterfalls. It was breathtakingly beautiful and I can see why it gets so popular! If you read up on the falls a lot of people will mention how busy it gets especially on the board walk. That’s why I recommend going early.

Now you can swim in the waterfall. Our boat arrived and we all saw a sign saying no swimming here and being typical tourists adhered to it and carried on walking. I then saw a croatian family head straight into the water and followed them in. Having the waterfall to ourselves for an hour was magical. By midday there were crowds of tourists and everyone was pushing, falling and trying to secure a rock to stand on.

As a side note if you’re planning on a trip to the falls then I’d recommend a waterproof bag (They sell tons of these in Skradin) and a waterproof phone case. The rocks are very sharp and sporadic, you will fall no matter how careful you are. The currents are also quite strong by the waterfall. It’s all common sense but if you want flotation devices or special shoes add those to your list. I went bare foot and was fine bar a few scratches.


Along the boardwalk there are facilities and the option to catch another boat to Visovac, sadly I didn’t have time to do this.


I ended up going to the falls twice before making my way back down to Split where I spent another night soaking up the music and atmosphere in the square.

A few mobile pictures as I didn’t take my camera to the square…

Amy & Ryan

What a way to kickstart 2018! 

I first met Amy whist teaching primary gymnastics (in my spare time!) and in she came one day with the cutest class I’d ever teach. Amy is such a lovely teacher (and person!) with such a sweet personality and I was so honoured to be asked to style their wedding day!

It was lovely to work alongside Lee from Strawberry Fields Catering and Kingscote Barn again, both great teams! Look out for Lee pictured below!

A few words from Amy…
“I just wanted to message and say a huge thank you for everything you did to help make our wedding day so perfect. Your decor was impeccable and beyond what I ever imagined!! The detail you put into it was just amazing and so personal to Ryan and I. It was beautiful. I was blown away.
So many people commented on the venue and how amazing you made it look. I can’t thank you enough. You are extremely talented and I will highly recommend you to all my friends and family in the future.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!”

I will let you admire these beautiful images by James Fear Photography, which sums up their cosy winter wedding perfectly…
