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.

Style & The Bride’s Pick Of The Best Bright And Beautiful Wedding Ideas
30th April 2017

Style & The Bride’s Pick Of The Best Bright And Beautiful Wedding Ideas

Wow, the last week has been pretty dismal, weather wise! This blog post about bright and beautiful wedding ideas is certainly going to cheer you up if the weather has been getting you down.

If you have grown up in the UK and are planning your wedding here, you know for certain that you can’t rely on the weather. You could be lucky enough to have brilliant sunshine for a March wedding whereas it might be pouring with rain for a July wedding. The truth is you need to be prepared, no matter what the weather has in store for you.

I love the idea of you opting for a bright and beautiful wedding even if the weather doesn’t live up to expectations. Who cares if it is cloudy or dull as everybody will be focused on your stunning bright and beautiful wedding.

My preference for a bright and beautiful wedding would be in the spring or summer months. It simply seems more appropriate than in the autumn or winter.

You may notice once you scroll through the images that I have picked out a variety of colours for this bright and beautiful wedding blog post. I am not necessarily saying to put all these colours together. On the contrary, this wouldn’t work at all. If for example you do opt for a bright red wedding dress, I wouldn’t necessarily go too bright when it comes to other aspects of your big day. If however, you are wearing a white dress, you have more opportunity to go ‘colour crazy’ on things like bridesmaid dresses, table decorations.

I hope you enjoy this blog post.
