“Absolutely Amazing”

Just wanted to send you a quick e mail to thank you for playing at our wedding last week. You were absolutely amazing and a highlight for myself and Chris. You’re extremely talented.

“A huge thank you”

I hope you got home safe and sound… Just wanted to say a huge thanks for making our evening so special everyone commented on how brilliant you were! I couldn’t have wished for anyone better to be part of our special day!! My gran stayed much later than normal so that’s a compliment you in its self!!! You are hugely talented Thanks again


James was the perfect choice for our wedding from the beginning, he was nothing but helpful and accommodating! Nothing was too much trouble for him! His talent is incredible, I can’t believe he hasn’t got a record deal yet. But I’m watching this space! I had so many comments about how superb the music was, it suited everyone as people could dance, but also guests could still talk to one another! He was such a lovely chap, he fitted in as though he was a guest at the party! Cannot recommend him highly enough…to be honest I’m trying to think of another reason I can have a get together just to hear/hire him again! Thanks James you were smashing!James-MCLEAN-LogoH

With spring fast-approaching, we are getting excited about the prospect of attending lots of outdoor weddings!

It’s important to choose a venue that provides beautiful scenery and backdrops, to ensure you can capture some breath-taking wedding photographs that you can cherish forever.

We have compiled some beautiful, boho-styled outdoor wedding backdrops – all taken from our lovely Pinterest page, ‘Ceremony backdrops’

Take a look at what they’ve found …

  1. Totally in love with this romantic arch, twisted with flowers, set in rural, British countryside. We can’t think of anything better than celebrating a loved ones special day in the peaceful countryside.

    A real statement for a UK wedding and something I'd love to try with our artificial garlands and flowers from www.bloomroomflowers.com

2. A Boho-styled wedding, with blossoming flowers around the rustic wooden stand. This beautiful organic theme can be achieved with ease, and look how stunning it is!
On a dry, warm day, this would make an ideal setting to say, ‘I do’ to your partner.
– Totally insta- pic worthy, what do you think?

Beautiful post!

Lora Hull

Please tell me where the last year has gone? I feel like it was literally seconds ago that myself and Chris met at university (7 years ago) and I’ve blinked and missed the last few years. This month I’ve been focusing a lot on wedding stuff, and wedding posts and I thought I’d just write a little something something about my first year as a WIFE as today is our one year anniversary!

Our Wedding Photographer

Adore this post!

Lora Hull

Chris really isn’t into photography and gets irate with me whenever I stop to take a photo of something but one thing I was really adamant on for our wedding was a quality photographer. We have family and friends who are photographers who we could have asked, but we wanted them to enjoy the day and not feel like they were always needing to ‘get the shot’.

This Month’s Top Pick of W-Bouquets

Flowers are a key element to any wedding and if, like us, you love flowers, June is the perfect month to get hitched.

June is the most abundant time in the flower calendar, so for a flower loving couple, it is a blooming good idea to get married this month. There are a wide variety of blooms at your disposal, which will all add different textures, colours and of course, fragrances to your bouquet.

We believe it is super important to choose your wedding day bouquet carefully, therefore we have compiled a little list of flowers to choose from if you’re planning a June wedding. Enjoy!

  1. Roses – perfect for couples after a natural, garden-like feel to their special day.

2. Sweet peas – A beautiful, delicate flower, perfect for a warm June wedding. The subtle flower is stunning against a simplistic, ivory wedding gown, wouldn’t you agree?

3. Jasmine – A fine, delicate flower; very pretty and lovely to have on its own as a fresh-looking wedding bunch, or can be used to add texture to an assorted bouquet! The scent will enchant your guests.

4. Delphiniums – Tall, delicate beauties will create a sense of scale and a few delphiniums in striking blue may be all you need to create a ‘wow factor’.
