Today marks the final blog feature for 2019.
We’re very aware that this time of year things start to slow down and wedding planning is set aside to make room for friends, family and festivities. This is the only time of year where we also step away from this platform and enjoy a few days off – it’s mostly spent eating, drinking, snoozing and watching Harry Potter.
However it’s also a perfect moment to pause and think about what’s been and what’s to come.
2019 might have been the year you were proposed to and 2020 is the big ‘I do’. Or, perhaps with all the uncertainty surrounding us recently, you’ve put your wedding plans on hold and now the year ahead is when you start to put into action those Pinterest boards jam-packed with ideas and inspiration!
Whatever stage you’re at, we know that come the 26th December we see a flurry of activity on these pages! Couple’s keen to get cracking on making their big day a reality, of course starting with the venue search. If you do find us and are reading this very feature, then welcome – I’m so pleased to have you here.
We want to make sure you have enough to start your wedding planning over the festive season so say hello to the 2020/21 edition of our digital magazine!
The Annual is a wedding planning book-magazine-hybrid jam-packed (over 300 pages!) with everything you need to know for each stage of your epic celebration. Waiting to be devoured by newly-engaged couples, it takes everything we do on this platform to the next level!
We’ve pulled together an incredible team of wedding experts to lend their voices, knowledge and skills to help kick-start your wedding planning journey. To give you a little taster our team includes Pocketful of Dreams, Butler & White, Hannah Duffy Photography, Julie Michaelsen Photography, This Modern Revelry, Edible Essence, Bureau Design, The Little Lending Co., The Hair & Makeup Atelier and many, many more. We also have our regular contributors Katrina Otter Weddings, Perfect Day Bride and Prezola sharing their wisdom.
The Annual covers everything from budgets to planning your ceremony, marquee considerations and destination tips, wedding dress shopping to thoughts on lingerie and questions to ask your caterer through to a beautiful wedding stationery guide. The magazine has some our most popular pieces such as ‘Wedding Day Timings‘ and ‘Choosing Your Suppliers‘ all in one place, but you’ll also discover new and exclusive content about planning topics we’ve never touched upon… until now! As well as having top-line planning features we’ve mixed in some beautiful inspiration from real weddings and styled shoots at our beloved venues.
You can read the digital version of The Annual 2020/21 right NOW for FREE via Issuu.
So Merry Christmas friends… and enjoy The Annual! (Best read with a tipple, a mince pie and the one you love).
