Wedding Wednesday – Temple Gregory at The Savoy

March 21, 2012

Happy Wedding Wednesday! As briefly mentioned we (partner in wedding planning crime Svetlana & I) had a bit of a soiree at The Savoy in London recently and I wanted to share some of the photos with you as it was such a fabulous night. The party was to celebrate our re-brand and sparkly new website of our luxury wedding & events business Temple Gregory.

Thank you to everyone involved and thank you to Chanelle and Craig from Segerius Bruce Photography who took these beautiful photos.

A party would not be a party without cocktails and in keeping with our pink colours we had Pink Lady and Strawberry Daiquiri cocktails, which needless to say went down with everyone rather well!

To me, whether it be an event or a wedding, flowers are always play a huge part and really make the design. The lovely Emma Lappin and Euphoric Flowers collaborated to create this gorgeous display.

The beautiful flowers and light colours in their golden urns went with the Savoy Ballroom and our overall scheme so well – fabulous!

We were lucky enough to have this gorgeous dessert table created by the fabulous Crumbs! CoutureEverything was gone by the end of the evening… that says it all!

Harri from Crumbs! Couture is a very clever lady and put together these tasty delights for our guests. We had an array of cupcakes, home-made marshmallow, sumptuous ruffle cake and all kinds of other goodies!

The wonderful luxury stationers Borrowed Blue Press created our invites for the party (you can see the invites here), as well as these beautiful menus for the cocktail bar and dessert table.

As guests arrived they were greeted by the beautiful sound of Harpist Rebecca McGrath. I just love the sound of a harp – perfect for weddings too. A bit later singer Kevin Fitzsimmons took to the stage and entertained guests with his fabulous voice.

We also had special guests Kristina Rihanoff and Robin Windsor from Strictly Come Dancing at the party and after a cocktail and a bit of mingling, they surprised guests by performing a Rumba!

I love strictly so it was fabulous to have Kristina and Robin there – who were both so lovely. You can see a video of their Rumba on our Facebook page.

This is Svetlana and I doing our little speech – look at my fabulous sparkly Olivier Laudus hairband! I did not want to take it off and cannot wait for an excuse to wear it again!

Our dress code was Gorgeous & Glamorous and our guests did not disappoint! Look at the beautiful Anna from wedding blog Far From The Wedding Crowd – very glam indeed.

This is us again with Chrissie Reeves from OK Magazine and Sinclair from Maids to Measure.

Here are our fabulous florists Emma Lappin Flowers, Victoria & Simon from Euphoric Flowers along with make-up artist  Penelope Ewart.

This is Kat from Rock n Roll Bride, Alexis from OMG I’m Getting Married and Chanelle from Segerius Bruce Photography.

We were delighted to have the lovely ladies from Wedding Magazine joining us at the party.

Here we have Chanelle from Segerius Bruce Photography, Laura from Parallel Venues, Emma from Miss Bush Bridal, Annabel from Love My Dress and photographer Kirsten Mavric.

Sarah Murray & Helen Webster from Perfect Wedding Magazine on the right and left with Shelley & Kirsty in middle from Kitty & Dulcie and Flo & Percy.

We had a photo booth at the party, thanks to Hello Foto Booths, and it was a huge hit – constantly full with a que throughout the night!

Svetlana and I were so busy chatting that we almost missed it! Thankfully though we had a quick go at the end and you can see all of the photo booth photos here.

I hope you enjoyed this little peak at our party?! If you are interested we also have a wedding blog and we plan luxury weddings as well as luxury events.

Have a lovely Wedding Wednesday and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

Wedding Wednesday – The Little Peach

January 11, 2012

Morning all and happy Wedding Wednesday 🙂 I am delighted to be featuring new wedding stationery brand The Little Peach today. Owner and illustrator Sally Leach illustrates your love story on to each and every design by hand.

Choosing to be illustrated into one of the ready-to-go backdrops from the Sweetheart Collection or starting the process completely from scratch with a bespoke setting, the invitations are then individually printed by Sally, using a technique called Screen Printing.

Sally explains Screen Printing as a technique where you hand pull ink through a piece of stretched fabric meaning each invitation is effectively a limited edition piece of art. I have had clients tell me that their guests loved displaying the invite afterwards, making the invites a wonderful lasting token of the big day.

Sally’s illustrations, whilst trying to be descriptive tend to be light-hearted in style, and after researching what was out there she was enthused to set up The Little Peach, confident that she could offer a style of invitation that is truly unique to the wedding market.

Always known for making people giggle with her character illustrations, Sally found that putting the couple’s story into their own design meant conveying something much more personal and touching than traditional font-based invitations.

You can choose from a number of extra customisable options to create your perfect invitation bundle, including paper and ink choices, matching envelope inserts, badges and other favours.

There is also the option to add on other matching stationery such as order of service, seating plans and place names, venue signs and even super cute cake toppers!

Sally endeavours to work closely with each and every couple to really capture their individuality; composing each element to the highest standard and producing the perfect invitation sets that they are sure to cherish for years to come.

What do you think – isn’t it all so pretty! If you would like more information or would like to order from The Little Peach for your wedding, then please visit their contact page for details.

Have a lovely Wedding Wednesday and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

Wedding Wednesday – Coloured Shoes

January 4, 2012

Happy Wedding Wednesday my delightful lot and I hope that the first few days back at work are going well? Already half way through the week at least!

I posted these ideas on my wedding blog a good while back now, but wanted share here too as it was such as popular post and just because I like to talk about, and look at, pretty shoes! We don’t need to be getting married to appreciate these babies.

A bride is usually going to wear a white or ivory dress and I think there is nothing more fabulous than a pair of brightly coloured shoes underneath.

1 & 2 – Blue and Red shoes seen on Prima Donna Bride,  3 – Orange shoes seen on Bridal Express,  4 – Black shoes seen on Elizabeth Anne Designs,  5 – Bride in green shoes on Polka Dot Bride

Many brides complain of their grooms not seeing the importance of wedding shoes as “you can’t see them under the dress”. This is just not true and believe me – you will know, as will everyone you flash them to!

Knowing you have gorgeous shoes on will add something extra special to the day and so just tell H2B that those must have wedding Louboutin’s are an investment and a must for his future wife’s happiness! Hehe 🙂

1 – Sparkly Louboutins from Wedding Dress 2010,  2 – Green Louboutins from Flights of Fancy,  3 – Walking bride from Entertain With Jordan,  4 – Chandelier Louboutins from The Wedding Chicks

As you know, I love anything that sparkles. These beauties were made by the fabulous Rainbow Club for the Dorothy’s on ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ (TV programme to find the Dorothy for the West End production of Wizard of Oz). Perfect for a bride, bridesmaid or (if you are me) just every day wear!

Bridal Buyer

Don’t feel like you must stop with the bride, as your bridesmaids would also look fab in stunning colourful shoes. Or if you are not planning a wedding but going to a party – then it works for you too!

What do you think – would you or have you worn coloured shoes for your wedding?

I am already married, but love my coloured shoes – they can really make an outfit, bridal or otherwise.

Have a lovely morning and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

Wedding Wednesday – Chez Bec

December 21, 2011

Happy Wedding Wednesday – hope you are all well and looking forward to Christmas?! I am delighted to feature the new Chez Bec 2012 collection on the blog today. The lovely Rebecca Doyle is the brains behind Chez Bec – who are leading and award winning designers of very special wedding jewellery and accessories.

To showcase the new collection Rebecca organised a collection shoot at the fabulous Gosfield Hall – and as well as the beautiful photos (by Claudine Hartzel) shown below, the shoot was also captured on video (by The Dreamcatchers) – a lovely touch.

Gosfield Hall Bridal Shoot from The Dreamcatchers on Vimeo.

Ultra feminine, romantic pieces with a gentle vintage twist form the body of the latest collection – with beautiful bows, vintage-inspired lace and lashings of chiffon combined with divine appliqués and a delicate dusting of sparkle.

Photographer Claudine Hartzel took these lovely images and what a backdrop they had for that feminine vintage feel they were looking for, at Gosfield Hall – perfect!

The beautiful Paloma Blanca bridal gowns were from Rebecca’s Tunbridge Wells bridal boutique Isabella Grace.

The beautiful model used for the shoot is Alice Christian who is the face of Chez Bec and has been on board since the very beginning.

Alice’s hair was done by Jo Irving from Love Hair and the make-up was done by Lara Crudgington – both super talented ladies.

Featuring an abundance of shimmering freshwater pearls, sparkling Swarovski crystals and diamantes, Chez Bec’s 2012 Collection is a sure delight for any lucky lady.

Although obviously perfect for your wedding day – I think many of the pieces you can wear for any special party or occasion. So don’t worry, even if you are already married, you can still be seen in these lovely sparkly gems! My Temple Gregory brides have worn Chez Bec, as have I to several parties!

To see more or to purchase your own sparkly delights, please visit the Chez Bec website.

Have a lovely Wedding Wednesday and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx
