So I usually keep up with my blog once a month, often this time of year a few photo's of what I'm up to, or wedding stories. But 2020 has been somewhat different!

I would have expected to be able to start sharing some lovely happy wedding photo's by now, but unfortunate...

I've been printing cotton to make dresses for myself for a while now, and love that I can have a print exactly as I want it. Gone are the days of costly and restrictive screen printing, with digital printing now being so good, there are really no limits, and not that m...

With the whole wedding industry grinding to an abrupt halt, it’s been a very unusual start to the year. What is usually the busiest most chaotic time of the year for me has become the total opposite!

I thought it would be good to discuss some of these concerns, for anyone think...

I just watched the BBC Three documentary 'Odd One Out', which tells the heartbreaking story of the relentless cyberbullying Jesy Nelson received after winning X Factor as one of the members of Little Mix. It just shows how evil the world of social media can be, until r...

At the beginning of the year I had an email from Laura, who got married this summer, she'd been looking for the perfect dress, but just wasn't finding something that she truly loved.

Laura got married outside in the woods, and wanted a dress that was perfectly in keepin...

Lots of brides-to-be call me expecting a bespoke wedding dress to cost a fortune, but many are pleasantly surprised that’s it’s a lot less expensive than they had thought. Many have had disappointing shopping trips, just not finding what they want, or liking something...
