Style & the Bride Logo

Welcome to the UK's most stylish wedding blog

I am so excited to share my passion for the world of bridal with you, my fashionable bride-to-be’s. I am dedicated to sharing with you the latest wedding fashion trends, the most beautiful real weddings, inspirational receptions, gorgeous hair and beauty ideas, dream honeymoons and much, much more.

To give you a bit of background on myself, I got my first taste of weddings at the tender age of 23 when I was lucky enough to attend the A-list celebrity wedding of Victoria and David Beckham. I didn’t realise it at the time but the Beckham wedding ignited my passion for the wedding industry.

After editing Cosmopolitan Bride magazine, and freelancing for national bridal and non-bridal magazines, I decided to launch Style & the Bride.

I know that you are about to embark on one of the most exciting times of your life. My aim is to help you achieve the most incredible wedding day, your style, your way.

A Breathtaking Fairytale Wedding In Florence To Enchant You

You can’t help be enchanted by Sharlene and Craig’s fairytale wedding in Florence, it is truly beautiful.

The couple first met studying together in 2004. ‘At only 19. I fell completely in love with his kind heart.’ says Sharlene. ‘Our relationship progressed as we slowly set up our future together, and after eight years he proposed. It was the most incredibly surreal moment I have ever felt.

The couple were on holiday together in Florence at the time of Craig’s proposal. ‘I have always told Craig, sunset is my favourite part of the day as I love watching the colours of the sky change,’ says Sharlene.’It was then he dropped to one knee, told me he loved me and asked me if I want to return to Florence one day as husband and wife. With tears streaming down my face, I said yes.  I never thought that almost exactly two years later, we would return to our favourite city to become husband and wife.’

For her fairytale wedding in Florence, Sharlene wore an incredible Steven Khalil bridal gown. The couple married at Villa La Vedette, overlooking the icity of Florence. The bride’s accessories included Yves Saint Laurent shoes, Dior and Love On jewellery. Their stunning stationery was by Adorn Invitations.

Sharlene describes the style of her wedding in Florence as ‘simple and elegant with a a beautiful view.’ Her favourite moment of the day was when she was dancing with Craig as the sun was setting. ‘The scenery was so beautiful and it was everything I ever dreamed of,’ says Sharlene.
