Oded and Lena decided as soon as they got engaged that they didn’t want to get married at home in Tel Aviv, they wanted to go to New York City! “We wanted to avoid some of the bureaucracy entailed in official Israeli weddings”, they explained, “we also liked the romantic notion of getting away from everyone and having a wedding ceremony in NYC.”
They both wore non-traditional outfits which came from Cos. “We didn’t want the usual wedding clothes but still, it took a while to find them!” explained Lena. “In the end we both wore outfits from Cos – him a suit and me in a minimalist shirt dress and a flower crown.”
If you’re getting married in the next year and you like the idea of an adventure for your honeymoon then read on, because today I’m giving away a surprise European honeymoon with Surprise Trips! Over the summer Gareth and I were lucky enough to go on a surprise weekend trip to Vienna. If you read that post then you’ll already know the drill – but just to remind you, Surprise Trips is a revolutionary new concept in vacationing!
You tell them your preferred departure airport, send them a short list of places you don’t want to visit, and they book you a completely surprise European holiday. This is an absolute adventure because you don’t find out where you’re going until two hours before your flight takes off!
They currently offer 77 destinations in Europe and the service is open to all UK, IE, CA, AUS, NZ and US passport holders (all flights depart from the UK or Ireland). All flights are at convenient times and are under 3 and a half hours. They let you know a few days beforehand what the weather forecast is at the place you’re going, but other than that you’re on your own!

They met while on tour with Beyonce (she played keyboards, he was part of the pyrotechnics team ) so Theresa and Edward’s wedding was always going to be on the theatrical side! They were married in October and the bride wore a spectacular deep red cape with the dress that she helped design.
“The theme for our wedding was an elegant, fairytale world”, said Theresa. “We drew inspiration from many different sources which we found while travelling. Our tables were named after cities in which we have had wonderful experiences together.”
“Because Eddie is a special effects designer and operator, we had large handheld confetti poppers shoot confetti when we were first announced as Mr. and Mrs. Romack at the reception. We also had oversized sparklers held by our guests, in which we walked down as a send off at the end of the night. Since I am a singer, songwriter, and musician, it was important to me to have excellent music”
Jasmina and Mihael’s Slovenian wedding was all about nature. They kept things small and they spent only €1000 on the day. “Our colours were white, black and dark green with elements of wood, jute and lace”, said the bride. “We wanted to have a lot of wooden elements and to completely ban plastic from our table sets.”
“We were inspired by other eco-friendly weddings that we saw online but we wanted to have our wedding under our terms. It was a really nice to have an outdoor wedding with home-prepared food. Everything was vegan and vegetarian too. We gave homemade hemp soap as favours.”
Can you believe that the first National Wedding Show of the autumn season is next weekend? Me either! It seems like it was only about a month ago that we were doing the spring shows. I am super excited to get back on the road though, meet as many of you as possible and of course, launch my brand new veil collection that I’ve designed in collaboration with Crown and Glory!
Today I wanted to get you a little bit excited about the new range with a cheeky sneak peek of the lookbook shoot we did last week. Plus I’m hosting a contest to give away 25 pairs of tickets to the shows so you can come and see them in person! Keep reading until the end to find out how to enter.
The new collection is a bit more grown up that the last one, but still girly, glittery and super fun…
And even we’ve created our first full length veil! Yes those are holographic stars at the bottom!
Lily and Lance’s wedding was inspired by their one big love – Star Wars! “We had a lot of fun making huge Pinterest boards.” began the bride. “As soon as we decided on a Star Wars theme the fun really began!”
“Our ceremony was short and silly while remaining sweet and genuine. As it started, Lance was walking down the aisle to the music from the end of Star Wars episode IV and asked the crowd ‘What’s up everybody?!? Are we ready for a wedding!?’ and started high fiving the guests as he continued down the aisle, which was then followed by the groomsmen and bridal party being greeted with the same clapping, cheers, and high fives. Later we were told by guests that that moment set the tone for the rest of the day.”
