Today’s bride Samantha is a writer and is this week set to launch her book, The High Street Bride’s Guide. Amazing!! So you can be sure that her wedding is a cracker of a day.
WWW readers Darren and Samantha married in November of last year at The Broadway Hotel, Hertfordshire. They kept their wedding within a £8,500 budget and created quite a few elements of the fun decor themselves.
They wanted their wedding to have a nod to movies and words to represent their careers with a retro feel. I adore the red and yellow colour scheme, with the bridesmaids looking wonderful in yellow dresses with red accessories.
Thanks so much to Terry Li Photography for sharing her fantastic images today.

I thought today would be perfect to continue with the bridesmaid mini series, especially as the bank holiday is prime wedding planning time :-)
Today I am looking at bridesmaids in blue.
From duck egg, royal, pastel and navy hues there is a shade to suit every member of your party. You can add pattern, colourful accessories or mismatched dresses for a really unique look.
I do love a bank holiday weekend, especially Easter. It’s a week until my birthday, the flowers are blooming, there is a feeling hope and new beginnings in the air. I will be taking a whole 4 days out to relax and spent some time with my family… YAY.
WWW turned 4 this week, something I cannot quite believe. The time really has flown by, and 4 years ago I never dreamed I would be where I am now. It just goes to show you never really know what is round the corner. I cannot wait to see how the next 4 years unfold :-)
Today I just wanted to pop by wish you a wonderful Easter. I hope you have some time to chill out and spend with loved ones. I know A is excited to see if the Easter bunny has made a visit and am looking forward to dinner at my parents.
So I shall simply leave you with a sneak peek of a gorgeous wedding celebration heading your way this week…

Such a beautiful bride :-)
See you in the morning XOXO Lou
Today is all about the chic and the stylish.
We are in Austin, Texas for Elizabeth and Aaron’s modern white wedding. I so love this couple’s style, with Elizabeth looking elegant in an BHLDN dress with amazing Jimmy Choo shoes. They had a ceremony in front of an open fire, a cocktail hour and some super beautiful décor at their venue; W Hotel Austin. Wow.
Thanks so much to Cory Ryan Photography for sharing their images with us today, here is what they had to say about the day;
“Elizabeth rocked a beautiful long sheath BHLDN wedding dress with a tiny bow on the waist line, which she accentuated with a rhinestone belt and nude Jimmy Choos. Did I mention she has amazing style? One of the reasons I love photographing W hotel weddings is that the décor oozes classy charm on it’s own. But add a creative couples personal touches, you’ve got a heck of a party with lots of eye candy and lovely details! (Which also comes in handy when it decides to pour rain, and you have an awesome ballroom to have your own private party in.)
From start to finish, Elizabeth & Aaron’s wedding day was totally personalized. The ceremony actually took place in the record room by the fireplace, with only the closest 50 family and friends in attendance. The party then moved upstairs where an R&B trio entertained 150+ guests during cocktail hour, which was complete with signature drinks and a sweet toast from Aaron to Elizabeth. Then the doors opened to a lovely ballroom decorated in shades of cream and grey. White lounge sofas and furniture surrounded the dance floor and cupcake table, allowing for a laid-back party atmosphere. The centerpieces included hand wrapped books in the wedding colors, plus silver vases in cool geometric shapes, holding a variety of white flowers.
And would you believe Elizabeth is a semi-professional baker? She actually made all her own cupcakes for the gorgeous display you see! Greenbelt DJ was the proverbial “icing on the reception cake”, spinning the couples OWN records into the dance party mix. AMAZING! Big congrats go out to Elizabeth and Aaron, and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!”

Its Easter … so lets get prepared for all the sweet treats we can indulge in over the weekend :-) Sweetie tables are pretty much a wedding staple now, a fun touch which is a hit with every generation.
There are many routes and ways to go down when it comes to having sweets at weddings. You can have sweet favours, old fashioned sweets in jars, old school retro sweets on tables, sweets served on shelves or scrummy desserts.
I have delved into the WWW archives to share some real sweetie tables with you for some pretty ideas…
I love how these weddings used furniture as an alternative and super cute way to display their sweets…
Sweet tables can have so many different looks. Whether you are going for a specific colour palette, want to use pretty stationery to label your sweets or want to add décor like balloons for a touch of personality.
