Sarah and Lee's Fairytale Princess Summer Wedding

February 20, 2016

Sarah had dreamt of her fairytale wedding from an early age so when Lee proposed in Majorca in 2014, her dreams were set to become a reality........

Sarah's sights were set on a traditional summer church wedding surrounded by family and friends and having been a huge fan of Disney when growing up and her own name meaning princess, it was natural that this wedding would have a Disney princess theme.

Sarah and Lee were married during a rare British summer heatwave, in July 2015 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Sutton Coldfield and their reception followed at nearby Moxhull Hall.

When choosing her wedding dress Sarah opted for a beautiful gown by Mori Lee which had the perfect combination of being fitted to the hip before flowing into a full skirt for that princess element. Following in the footsteps of 3 best friends, the dress came from Shropshire County Brides and was the first she tried on!

Sarah went for a pink colour palette for her princess wedding and to stand out against her ivory dress, she chose pure pink roses.

Roses also featured on Sarah and Lee's 4 tier wedding cake by Cakeland, each tier was flavoured differently so there was something for everyone and guests could choose between fruit, vanilla, lemon and chocolate.

Pink continued into Sarah's bridesmaid dresses, she wanted them to feel like princesses too and chose these gorgeous floor length designer gowns by Veromia.

It wasn't all pink though, Lee had researched and decided upon his own style for him and his groomsmen and I love the blue suit and cheeky smart bow tie look he went for.

The Disney theme really came into its own though with Sarah and Lee's wedding stationery. With Sarah's own name meaning princess, we designed them a Disney princess wedding table plan, where each table was named after a Disney princess; obviously the table plan was also pink!

At Sarah's request, each Disney wedding table name card featured an illustration of the table's princess together with her own bio! We also provided their place name cards, Instagram wedding signs and Order of Service booklets, each following the same Disney look and feel. It was lovely to hear that many guests complemented Sarah and Lee on their unique stationery too.

Like so many brides, Sarah found inspiration on Pinterest and one thing in particular she'd seen and wanted to bring to life were her stunning table centres. Combining tall vases and gorgeous summer flowers, The Events Fairy was on hand to bring everything together.

Live music played a huge part in the wedding too with a string quartet accompanying canapes on arrival at Moxhull Hall, a singer and guitarist during the wedding breakfast and finally a band during the evening followed by a DJ set.

With guests partying until 3am, Sarah recalls some sore heads the morning after! She explains that the addition of live music really added to the atmosphere on the day and is something she would definitely recommend to future brides. She and Lee were determined everyone had a great time and look back on their photographs filled with laughter and know they achieved their aim.

8 Mothers Day Gift Ideas for Grandma
8 Mothers Day Gift Ideas for Grandma

February 16, 2018

I always think buying gifts for Mother's Day is harder than for a birthday; there's a little more sentiment behind it. The months and years seem to roll around so quickly these days and each year seems to get a bit harder! 

I've actually started a kind of present diary now, I make a note of what I get people (mainly family) so that I can refer back to it; I can also make notes of gift ideas I think of throughout the year. It helps avoid repeating presents too! 

With Mothers Day just around the corner, I've put together a list of my favourite gifts for Grandma (or Nanny, Nana, Granny, whichever name you use!).

Well, I've spent hours exploring ideas to fit the bill (and the budget) and assembled my ten favourites here.
