If you’re not one for wearing dainty jewellery and prefer bulkier bangles and bold statement pieces, then it can be hard to find something to wear on the wedding day. A lot of wedding jewellery is small and delicate, adorned with pearls or sparkly crystals.
Well, remember you can wear what the hell you like on your wedding day, so any jewellery goes! And I’m certain the jewellery from Lost Forest would look bloomin’ beautiful on your big day! It’s bold and beautiful, cast from resin, and features natural gems such as feathers, leaves and tiny flowers.
Lost Forest would be the perfect choice for a woodland/outdoors wedding or simply for any bride that wears bulkier pieces and doesn’t want to ditch them on the big day!
I personally love the bottom two in the last image as not only are they beautiful, they tick off the ‘something blue’ too!
P.S. Thanks to Taylor Roades for sharing Lost Forest with me :)

I’m writing this post one week after my first visit to Italy. I absolutely loved exploring the country, and I especially adored the food. Authentic Italian wood-fired pizza is so much better than the rubbish my local takeaway pizza places serve up!
And it got me dreaming of having proper wood-fired pizza at my one-day-in-the-future wedding. It’s a totally doable dream too!
There are plenty of companies dotted around the UK that serve up lovely pizzas such as the Northern company Honest Crust…
…or the Southern company Firebox Pizza…
I imagine a quick Google search would be all that’s needed to find a pizza catering company local to you.
Hire a pizza oven
You can even hire an oven from certain companies, something I only discovered when writing this post! I really like the idea of hiring an oven and making the pizzas yourself.
It’d keep costs down and having a pizza making station at your wedding would be a nice feature, as well as one that I’m sure guests would love.

Serving it up
As for serving the pizza, I love the idea of customising your own pizza boxes with your names and dates. You can buy blank pizza boxes from a company such as Rye Pack.
And then perhaps take inspiration from this couple, who laid out blankets for their guests to enjoy their delicious pizzas seated on the grass…

Relaxed, fuss free and delicious. Perfect :)

Stylist Sue Fyfe-Williams and photographer Venetia, of Firetop Photography, recently gathered a team of experts to create a wonderful wedding inspiration shoot. Taking their inspiration from the beach, they perfectly showcase the fantastic location of The Hotel Bristol, which overlooks a great surfing spot…
The colour palette was aqua and white which featured in the table setting in the vintage crockery, the white lanterns, the oyster shell candle favours and the nautical stationery. The beautiful wild flowers were displayed in a multitude of aqua glass bottles and the colour was also picked up in the bows on the chairs.
The beach theme was emphasized with the wonderful seashell cake, using a surf board as a guest book and the classic VW camper van. The bride wore a blue dress and the groom a cream linen suit. We also took the opportunity of shooting some relaxing post wedding scenes on the beach itself.
