How to Get the Perfect Fit for your Wedding Dress

Caroline Arthur Event Rock n Roll Bride

A few weeks ago I was invited by wedding dress designer Caroline Arthur to attend her Perfect Fit Event at the picturesque Gate Street Barn near Guildford. The day was put on, not just to promote the amazing suppliers involved, but to share information to help educate brides about how to get the right fit for their wedding dress. This is something Caroline is super passionate about so it was so inspiring to see her in action. We even made a short film about it. I learnt so much too!

The room was set up like an enchanted garden, with spectacular flowers from Hannah Martin.

Caroline’s British-made CoutureKit dresses and fabrics were set up at one end, and at the other was gorgeous lingerie from Guilt Lingerie, who were on hand to give brides great advice about what to wear under their wedding dress.

Get Your Wedding Photography Questions Answered Live!

crown and glory Kat Alexa Loy-47

Facebook Live is my new favourite thing. People have been telling me I should do YouTube for years, and although I’ve kind of secretly wanted to, I was worried about a) knowing what to talk about b) finding the time and c) having to learn how to edit video! Facebook Live has changed the game because now I can simply grab my phone, go live and chat away to my heart’s content!

I’ve done a few broadcasts over on my Facebook page so far and the most enjoyable one was the Q&A I did last week. So I’ve decided to do another, but this time with a special guest and on a specific topic.

Tomorrow, on Thursday 16th June at 6pm GMT, I will be joined by award winning wedding photographer Lisa Devlin and we’re going to answer your questions on one of our favourite subjects – wedding photography! We want to use this session to help YOU so this is your opportunity to get your burning questions answered.

Hello Kitty Pop Up at Cutter and Squidge

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This isn’t strictly a wedding related post, but when I shared some snaps from my visit to the Hello Kitty pop up cafe in London, I had so many comments and questions about it so I thought I’d share a few more photos.

It would also make such a fun alternative hen do activity, or like we did, as a little pre-wedding dress shopping treat. We were in London to do some wedding dress shopping for Sophie so it worked out really well doing both at the same time (cake also helps you make better decisions don’t you think?)

It’s Time for The National Wedding Show, London!

national wedding show manchester

Last weekend was amazing! I have never been more exhausted, but after being at the Manchester National Wedding Show on Saturday and Sunday I’ve remembered how much I really, really love getting out of the office – ha! It was such fun being surrounded by other wedding obsessives, meeting new suppliers and of course hanging out with you lot! To everyone who came along, visited our stand, said hi, took a selfie with me, bought a magazine or ordered a veil, I LOVE YOU.

I’ve had two days back at home, trying my best to catch up with my emails and work (and failing miserably) and today we’re back on the road and heading to London Olympia for the next show this weekend! It kicks off at 10am tomorrow and runs all the way through to 5pm Sunday.

Want to know what you can expect if you come along? We made you a little video!

Come Join Us at The National Wedding Show This Weekend!

nws manchester

As you read this, I’ll be somewhere on the M6, driving up to Manchester for the first of three back-to-back National Wedding Shows. It’s going to be a busy few weeks but I can’t wait!

Gareth and I will be at Manchester Central all weekend on our stand that we’re sharing with Sophie and Gareth of Crown and Glory. I’d be over the moon if you’d come along and buy a magazine, or try on some of our veils! We even have some special treats in store for you.

Firstly, we’ve designed an exclusive piece which you will ONLY be able to order at the National Wedding Shows – it won’t ever be available to buy anywhere else.

Plus, we’re also hosting a contest for one lucky bride-to-be to win £200 to spend on Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory pieces, and I’ll be doing a meet & greet and magazine signings all weekend!
