When planning your big day, the finer details such as wedding favours, the wedding cake, flowers and the photographs are the areas that define your ‘couple style’ which we know can be a lot of pressure on anyone.

So, we’ve been in touch with our pool of amazing suppliers to not only show you what’s out there and what’s currently trending in the wedding world, but also to offer you some advice from the best in the business on questions you have but may be unsure where to find the answers.

What are you waiting for? Go find your ‘couple style’…

For those who are unaware, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017 is greenery and although it may sound somewhat unappealing, even confusing especially if you ever want to incorporate it into your wedding day, think of it this way, the colour symbolizes new beginnings and a fresh start.

La Perla London

1954 may seem like a relatively uneventful year to most, but to us 1954 marks the year that La Perla was born. A skilled artisan in the tradition of hand crafted Italian corsetry, Ada Masotti was destined to be successful when she launched her lingerie atelier in Bologna. The name “La Perla” was inspired by a case lined in red velvet in which she presented
