Let’s talk interiors shall we…?
It’s absolutely no surprise this goes hand-in-hand with what we love to do. We obviously adore discovering and visiting new places and I have been known to get a little over-excited at various wedding venue décor decisions on my travels.
This is why we love Prezola – our chosen Gift List partner. Founder Ali is a renowned stylist and has an amazing eye for detail, so you know your Gift List is in great hands with the Prezola team and their chosen brands.
We’ve got a little round up of some of the colours and items we’re crushing on for 2017, but if you head over to our dedicated Gift List page you can discover some other articles you might be interested in, especially if you’re deciding whether a Gift List is for you.
That point where you’ve booked your venue and key suppliers but haven’t made the stationery decision, this is the point to have the chat my friends – hint: I didn’t have one thanks to the husband-to-be and I regret it! He still gets blamed.
Notes from Prezola
It’s that time of year again where colours of the year are unveiled and interior magazines predict the hottest trends of 2017. We like to stay on top of the latest trends at Prezola so our style-savvy couples have the very best for their wedding gift list and this year, it’s all about the colour!

Notes From This Modern Revelry
Laura & Alan:
We’ve been together for 7 years and are getting married ourselves this year (whoop!) at one of Coco Wedding Venue’s recommended venues no less. We definitely wouldn’t describe ourselves as traditional – in life and in business.
Our words to live by are ‘Love Like Hell Yeah’ – love that doesn’t apologise, is a little bit wild but most of all is modern love. This Modern Revelry exists for people who don’t want shot after shot of ‘this happened, then this’ but want to capture the feeling of the day: the fun, the style, the details and most importantly – the party. With a vibe that’s more at home in a music video than a party political broadcast.
You guys have gone WILD for this venue…
This home-from-home wedding venue in Oxfordshire is a fave amongst newly-engaged couples and it’s so easy to see why. Wedding Weekends at The Copse offers a glorious self catering country house, high in the Chiltern Hills with views over its own valley of outstanding natural beauty. You can host your reception and ceremony surrounded by flower meadows and water in total privacy and seclusion.
Now layer on top this the utterly gorgeous styled inspiration shoot, by Wedding Planner Jenna Hewitt and Kitty Wheeler Shaw Photography, and I’m sure they’ll be a few more of you falling head over heels for The Copse.
I don’t know if it’s the Bohemian vibes, the pops of flame (a rather hot Pantone colour for Spring!) or the incredible botanicals by my new florist crush Willowgold Flowers that have me over excited! If this doesn’t kickstart your Monday then I’m not sure what will…
Notes from The wedding Planner
The Copse was my inspiration for this styled shoot. This beautiful, new wedding venue sits in the heart of the English countryside and is owned by Penny and Tim Holley. A country house with extensive land, The Copse offers laid back luxury for couples looking for the flexibility to do things their way. I fell in love with it after I planned Penny’s son’s wedding there in August last year, it holds such a magical beauty and charm with a relaxed feel.

Hillersdon House is a truly stunning venue, overlooking rolling hills, woodland and has its own chapel by the lake. Having just opened its doors to wedding bookings, the truly talented Devon based wedding planners Blue Fizz Events put together an amazing wedding inspiration shoot that celebrates all the contemporary romance and elegance this home has to offer.
“The elegance and attention to detail are evident in every aspect of this beautiful venue…” comment Tracy and Bridget, the geniuses at Blue Fizz, “…and we wanted to reflect that alongside stunning suppliers to narrate a current trend that is an eternal favourite with many couples. It’s where you will feel at home for your special occasion.”
The lady behind the lens is the ever wonderful Frances Carlisle who has used the natural light to capture the feel of this venue inside and out bringing it all to life with her expert eye.
Over to Frances for the delicious details…
Notes from the Photographer
This shoot was a true romance set in the inspiring and unique house and grounds of Hillersdon House. As a lived-in country house, we wanted to show that this is a beautiful, contemporary and well-cared for home – a far cry from a venue set up for en-masse wedding hire.
Delicate shades of soft pinks and ivory embellished with glimmers of gold steal the show but we also wanted natural wood to make an appearance to reflect the acres of woodland surrounding Hillersdon.
