A Free Wedding Event at the Town Hall Hotel, London

Kat

Love That Smile

February 20, 2019

Bethnal Green's Town Hall Hotel is a real hidden gem. From the original art deco interiors, the dramatic marble staircases, original wooden panelled rooms and their very own ceremony chambers, its the perfect spot for the wedding of East London-loving urban dwellers. The entire place has been sympathetically restored in its original art deco finery so stepping through those grand front doors really is a little bit like stepping back in time.

Sack The Cheesy Wedding DJ & Hire Disco Wed Instead!

February 18, 2019

It's no massive surprise that the right music and entertainment at a wedding is CRUCIAL to have a party that goes off with a bang. However if you're not the kind of people that go to a lot of gigs and you don't happen to have a DJ BFF, it can be difficult to know how to find people to perform at your wedding. We had a terrible band at our wedding over a decade ago because we simply didn't give the choosing of them enough time and attention (I actually think my parents went to a wedding where they played and said they were 'alright' so we we're like "Sure, lets just book them and get it ticked off our list". Big mistake, huge!)

How To Get the Best Out of Attending a Wedding Show

Kat

Emma + Rich

February 4, 2019

Going to your first wedding show can be a daunting experience. However, if you’re properly prepared and you go in with an open mind they are really, really fun! One of my very favourite alternative wedding shows is The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza which is taking place on March 16th & 17th in Birmingham. I’ll be there signing books and showcasing our brand-new veil collection with Crown and Glory (it’s the only wedding show you’ll be able to see these beauties in-person this season) so I hope to see lots of your beautiful faces there!

Low Key but Luxe: How to Have a Budget Wedding that Still Looks Fancy AF

Ellie Kime

January 18, 2019

If there’s one thing we know to be true in wedding world ‘19, it’s that engaged couples are looking to save as much money as they possibly can. In fact, some reports coming though at the moment state that the £25k ‘average’ wedding budget that’s thrown around by the media may have in fact decreased to something much closer to £12k in the last year or so (thanks Brexit, thanks Trump). However, what that doesn’t mean is that 2019 couples want their budget savvy weddings to look cheap, far from it in fact. Rock n Roll brides in particular are, if anything, becoming even more creative and experimental with how they pull off a killer wedding on a budget. Today, our friends at Most Curious Wedding Fair are here to tell you how to do it.

How to Book the Perfect Marquee For Your Wedding

Kat

Assassynation

January 11, 2019

If you're dreaming of an outdoor, woodland or festival style wedding, the likelihood is you're going to need to hire a marquee. Your venue tends to be one of the most costly parts of a wedding and doing things al fresco is no different. In fact doing the casual, laid back, outdoorsy thing can actually end up being even MORE stressful and costly than going for an indoor space as you'll need to think about things like electricity, loos and access.

Finding Your Style with Prezola: Matt Black

Kat

November 7, 2018

I have two very distinct sides to my personality: A rainbow loving, magpie emulating, glitter obsessive, 'Disney is everything!' side and an all-black-all-the-time, metal music listening, 'forever looking for the perfect nude lipstick' side. I am nothing if not a contradiction but for some reason it makes total sense to me. One day I want to roll myself in glitter, dress head to toe in rainbows and slick on some hot pink lipstick, and the next I only want to wear black and for everything to be clean and very neatly organised.

Stress-Free Marquee Hire for your Festival Wedding (It Is Possible!)

Kat

Camera Hannah

November 1, 2018

Choosing a venue has got to be, in my opinion anyway, one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding. Not only is it usually one of the first things you have to do (you can’t really organise anything else until you know where the day will be taking place!) but its hugely time consuming. Narrowing down your search by venue type, location and budget… then comparing packages and prices to make sure you get the best deal and that everything you need is included with no hidden surprises is, quite frankly, a bloody nightmare.

Get Those Once in a Lifetime Items with a Prezola Gift List

September 12, 2018

At one time or another we've probably all dreamt of going all out and splashing on that thing we'd really love to own but could never, ever afford (mine is a copper bath if anyone's asking!) A statement piece of art, a fancy yet oh-so-out-of-our-price-range piece of furniture, or maybe just booking that once in a lifetime, 5* honeymoon. Yet planning, and paying for, a wedding can really take it out of you (and your wallet!) so you'd be forgiven for thinking that now isn't really the time to finally take the plunge... Well, my friend, I may just have a solution for you.

I am so excited to finally be publishing this bridal fashion editorial in full today! If you grabbed yourself a copy of the last issue of Rock n Roll Bride magazine you will have already seen a lot of this shoot inside, but today I wanted to take the opportunity to not only share more images that didn't quite make the spread (when 10 pages just isn't enough!) but to tell you all about Walthamstow Wetlands, one of London's coolest new wedding venues, who we partnered with for this shoot.

Finding Your Style With Prezola: Neon Tropics

Kat

August 8, 2018

If there's one wedding theme that's ridiculously popular right now its neon tropics. Think cacti, succulents, pastel-painted pineapples, macrame and wall hanging neon signs: Palm Springs vibes ahoy! And it's hardly surprising. Interior and fashion trends always filter down into weddings and these kind of elements are ALL of the high street right now. I remember dreaming of one day being able to afford to buy my own neon sign - now you can pick them up for under £100 from almost any store that sells homewares!

Wild Wedding Festival: An Alternative Wedding Fair in France

July 25, 2018

I think it's pretty safe to say that the UK is very much leading the way when it comes to alternative, quirky and unique weddings. In fact I probably hear about yet another alternative wedding fair popping up somewhere here on a weekly basis! Don't get me wrong, this is no bad thing, I remember when I was a bride trying to find ANYTHING remotely different was an impossibility. Today's brides are very lucky indeed!

Why You Should Be Thinking Outside the Box with Your Wedding Venue

Kat

July 18, 2018

I don't know about you, but I've always found sorting the venue one of most stressful parts of wedding planning. Not only is it one of the first things you need to do (you can't set your date, send out invitations or even really start planning your decor and theme until you know where the day will take place) but almost everything else hinges on getting this part right. A fantastic venue will make your wedding day feel like a dream, whereas one that isn't quite right will make the whole process a bit of a nightmare.
