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.

The Most Stunning Ideas For A Feathers And Sparkle Wedding Theme

Are you in need of inspiration when it comes to your wedding? If you are planning a winter wedding, we love the idea of a feathers and sparkle wedding theme. All too often brides and grooms worry that a Christmas wedding might look tacky and too ‘Christmassy’ I always advise couples to steer away from Christmas colours such as red, white and green. I instead advise you to embrace whites, silvers and golds, simply perfect for a feathers and sparkle wedding theme.

In case you are worried that a feathers and sparkle wedding theme isn’t on trend, fear not. It is perfect for those of you who like keeping up to date with wedding trends and is also ideal for a fashionista.

The recent Ralph & Russo Fall 2017/2018 couture collection demonstrated that feathers and sparkle are bang on trend and are simply perfect for a winter wedding.

How to have a feathers and sparkle wedding theme

I know brides often find it hard to imagine a catwalk trend translating to a bridal one. However, believe me it is most certainly possible. A feathers and sparkle wedding theme is so bridal and most definitely works best for celebrations in the winter months. The first thing you have to consider is the balance between feathers and sparkle. Do you like the idea of incorporating both feathers and sparkle or do you prefer for example some of your bridesmaids in sparkly dresses and others in gowns with feathers on them? The choice is of course a personal preference. Here at Style & the Bride, we feel we are here to guide you and provide you with plenty of ideas and inspiration to help you make your mind up.
