Introducing a new series of real life weddings, planned by me at The Pink Pumpkin. First off this fabulous wedding held on a sunny July day for one of my recent clients; Sally and Marcus.
Sally and Marcus chose the fabulous setting of Bignor Park for their wedding day. Set in acres and acres of glorious Sussex countryside with THE most amazing views, Bignor is a stunning space and is available to hire on a limited number of occasions per year for marquee weddings.
This wedding was filled with countless gorgeous details, from the outdoor ceremony in the Greek Loggia, to the vintage tea on the lawn and the beautiful floral arrangements in the marquee, the whole day was magical. I will let the pictures speak for themselves, but it was a truly fabulous wedding that will be remembered for years to come.
Thank you to Sally and Marcus; it was such a pleasure working with this lovely couple, and I wish you much love and happiness for the future xx

Like most blokes* my man is pretty clueless when it comes to the intricacies of wedding planning. The vast majority of wedding related companies and resources are aimed at the Bride and the poor Groom is left to watch in bewilderment as his beloved's plans unfold before his very eyes.
Well not any more! Staggered is a fabulous resource for all grooms (and brides) to be. It is crammed full of advice and information about all aspects of planning a wedding, from what to expect at the wedding ceremony, to how to write your wedding speeches, to wedding suits for men and lots, lots more.
It also has an entire section devoted to stag do ideas, but the less we know about that the better (!) and a very useful suppliers' map.
Boys, get yourselves over there now; girls, the more time they spend on there, the more time you can spend poring over the latest wedding magazine or looking at pieces of pretty on the interweb! xx
* I know this is a sweeping generalisation; but it is also true. 99% of the time.

Idyllic Days has gone all European and has been featured on Spanish Vogue's website.
Now, my Spanish is limited to say the least (!) so I'm not 100% sure what the article actually says, but am reliably informed that it speaks of the relationship between dinner ware and the landscape of weddings, and recommends various companies, including Idyllic Days, that brides can buy or hire lovely dinner ware from.
