It’s almost that time of year again…

The Most Unusual Wedding Fair is without doubt one of the most stylish entries in our Event Diary. Hosted by Godwick Great Barn, in partnership with a team of fabulous wedding suppliers, this Wedding Fair is the perfect setting to inspire and delight those rustic-boho brides amongst you.

Penny from The Little Lending Co. is here with all the details…

Notes from Godwick Great Barn


The Most Unusual Wedding Fair returns to Godwick Great Barn on Sunday 6th November 2016.

If you are looking for a Rustic, Whimsical, Vintage, Boho and Festival styled wedding then this is definitely a fair for you.

This year there’s an even greater selection of outside street food trucks and drink stands, so come and enjoy the atmosphere and take in the Wild Bohemia-themed outside styled ceremony area. We’ll also have a brand new ‘interactive table’ where suppliers will give tips and information about the latest trends in floristry and wedding design plus a live hair and make-up demonstration to inspire you.

A ‘Home Tour’ of The Old Stables at Bridwell


Images by Venetia Norrington.

Bridwell is a location of great beauty and prestige, with refreshing flexibility. This impressive house has been hidden from public gaze for 240 years but there’s an exciting new chapter in the life of the estate!

The much loved family home of Lord Ivar Mountbatten is available for exclusive use and private hire – it’s your very own Country House Estate. As well as the Georgian house, there’s also the very pretty Orangery, a 19th Century Chapel, gorgeous gardens and acres of parkland.

The newest addition is the brand new accommodation housed in The Old Stables and we’re lucky enough to be taking a little tour around these super stylish rooms. So if you’re looking for a wedding venue that has enough (beautiful) accommodation for you and your guests then look no further!

Here’s Vicky with a little more…

The Old Stables Bedrooms


Standing tall, beautifully framing the intimate courtyard of the main house, you will find the Old Stables – the latest phase of Bridwells venue facility developments completed in July 2016 – creating 10 new stylish and comfortable bedrooms as an addition, or alternative, to the House Bedrooms.

The historic leaded windows, guilded clock tower, striking archways, ornamental ironworks and original stable doors remain, preserving the charm, character and history that lay before, whilst gently extending the relaxed grandeur of the house.

Springtime at Fulham Palace


Image by James Green Photographer.

We may be in the full swing of Autumn, but our hearts are firmly in the Springtime with this gorgeous inspiration piece from London gem Fulham Palace

From pretty florals, yummy cocktails, backdrops for your photographs and centepieces galore, they’ve thought of it all. So if you’re considering a Spring wedding then this one’s for you.


Notes from Fulham Palace

Why is Fulham Palace a perfect Spring venue..?

Set within 13 acres of rolling lawns and botanical gardens, Fulham Palace is the perfect setting for a wedding in the Spring months. The gardens are just coming into bloom and there are plenty of backdrops for the day, the wisteria on the main lawn is one of our personal favourites closely followed by the blossom lined path in our Walled Garden.

What touches and details suit a Spring wedding at Fulham Palace..?

It’s all about bringing the outside in for Spring weddings. These months are the perfect time of year to take full advantage of rustic details which can be just as pretty as more refined styling. We love the idea of palettes and crates for flowers, wooden table plans and natural herb infused cocktails.

Bhuti x The Bingham

Monday mornings – I’m sure we all have our own routines to kick-start our week right…?

Well last Monday I was well and truly thrown when I stepped away from the usual desk position and headed to the picturesque Richmond-upon-Thames, where apparently bhuti lies within…

The story starts with The Bingham. I absolutely adore this venue. It’s graced these pages many a time and it’s been a personal bookmark for many a family occasion; so when I was asked if I wanted to make another visit to try out their brand new Spa called bhuti, there was only one answer.

Bhuti & The Bride

bhuti is an eco and wellbeing escape located a stones throw from the hotel. Offering a range of natural and organic spa treatments, bhuti is a perfect extension of The Bingham’s luxury ethos and offers a range of treatments designed to ensure you feel radiant from within. From yoga classes and nutrition workshops, to thermal detox massages and inner peace treatments, bhuti offers a treatment for everyone covering a range of Complementary therapies including Reiki, Acupuncture and Homeopathy, all carried out using only the finest natural and organic products proudly made in England.

You may have a small inclination by now that planning a wedding can be teensy bit stressful, so I personally think taking time out – whether it’s with your husband-to-be, with your girlfriends or just by yourself – is essential. You can therefore visit bhuti for a pick me up throughout your wedding planning or enjoy some pampering on the eve or morning of your big day. The stresses of wedmin and to-do lists can quite simply be left at the door as soon as you step into the idyllic and tranquil surroundings.
