Everything that went wrong: 4 days to the wedding

Yes, a lot went wrong in my wedding planning calendar in the final run-up to my wedding. I guess that’s generally the way it goes, and along the way friends, family and colleagues have been warning me about not worrying too much, things do go wrong, and will go wrong, on the day too. So, what went wrong? Let’s start with the wedding dress. I went to collect my dress, was extremely nervous and delicate about taking it home to safety. Once at home I took it out of its bag and it was wrinkled. Disaster! I rang the shop and they said to return the next day for them to iron it again. I did, and this time I carried it even more carefully, took it into my bedroom and hung it up to have a look at it. And when I took it out of the bag, my wedding dress had […]

Hanbury Manor Spa Day

Hanbury Manor Spa Day Whether it’s before your wedding day, a present for your besties birthday or a treat for Mother’s Day, there’s nothing better than a lovely pamper day with family or friends. I recently visited Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire with my mother for a Spa Day and afternoon tea. I live in Essex and have been here before for afternoon tea which was fab so I thought what better way to celebrate getting back in shape after having baby Rocco than a pamper/ spa day with my mum so we decided to checkout the spa at Hanbury Manor and were not disappointed. The thing about being pregnant although a wonderful experience is there’s so many restrictions on what you can and can’t eat and do etc especially when it comes to beauty treatments. Then you think, I can’t wait till baby is born because then I can start […]

Saying ‘I Do!’ to watches!

When it comes to the choice of wearing a watch on your wedding day or going down the aisle bare-wristed, many brides will be advised to shun a timepiece, or with so many other arrangements to make, will overlook the decision altogether. But should you let your big day tick away without one? Bride on Time looks at why you should say ‘I do!’ to wearing a wedding watch. Stay on Track You’ve spent months (perhaps years) planning your dream day, and you’ll need to remain organised until the confetti has been swept away. You’ve arranged and memorised the timings of each part of your wedding down to the last second, so keeping track of what’s happening as the hours fly by is just good bridal sense. Nobody wants to be constantly checking their watch on their wedding day, but grabbing the nearest person with a smart phone and demanding […]

Maggie Sottero in the Suffolk Countryside

Looking beautiful in her Maggie Sottero dress, Kelly tells the story of her wedding to her dashing groom Tim.  Married in a famous Cathedral, they later celebrated their wedding in the open Suffolk Countryside… Kelly met Tim in a seminar in their first term at the University of East Anglia in 2008.  They instantly hit it off when they worked together in a group project studying Business Management. Kelly says: Tim and I got married on the 30th May 2015 at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.  The Cathedral is very special to Tim’s family – as he was a chorister when he was younger and his parents go to services at least once a week. Tim’s dad Stewart is also the Head Warden at the Cathedral and is heavily involved with the running of it.  Since they had all the connections there we felt it was the best place for us to get […]

Advice to My Daughter

Advice to my daughter… On your wedding day, my daughter Kathleen, you will inherit the platinum art deco engagement ring of your great-grandmother.  Tradition dictates that it goes to the first born daughter of each new generation.  While not of great monetary value, it is great of sentiment. I was so concerned, during my tenure with the ring, of protecting it for the next generation, that I rarely wore it.  Yes it is old and fragile, being just twelve years shy of it’s century mark, but wear it. I will pass the ring on to you on your wedding day, as it was to me from my mother, but while I do so with a glad heart, I also feel a mild sense of loss.  I really don’t know the ring, and never made it mine.  Make it yours, wear it, enjoy it, and all the while, take good care.

Wedding beauty prep: should the groom get a facial and manicure?

When I told everyone at work that I plan for my fiancé to have a facial, they laughed hysterically and probably thought it had actually happened: I had become Bridezilla. I hadn’t realised it was that ‘out there’ when it came to wedding beauty preparation… I want to get one for myself and just thought, why not? Mr O can join in the fun and get his pores cleaned a little. Maybe I’ll ask him what he thinks… And what about a mani? My fellow bride at work and her future hubby are both getting one for the close-up ring shots. I myself am getting a mani and a pedi (I like saying mani and pedi because it makes it sound like I’ve been having them once a month since I was yay-high – I haven’t). I wouldn’t bother with a manicure for my fiancé because his hands are just fine and I […]
