Rachel who is based in Accrington, Lancashire specialises in creating beautiful, documentary style images.

 

She says of her work…

 

“My favourite things about weddings are the details and the emotions so my work tends to feature a lot of those!”

“I cover weddings across Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and the Lake District.”

 

“Rachael and Jamie found me on Facebook and booked me soon after.”

“I met with Rachael at Singleton Lodge a few weeks before the wedding for a Venue visit, and I was wowed. It’s so Pride and Prejudice!”

“We also visited the Church itself and I loved the fact it was right in the centre of town.”

 

“The day itself was absolutely perfect. Rachael was a really calm bride and spending the morning with her, her mum and her bridesmaids was an absolute pleasure.”

“I loved their choice of a lemon and grey colour scheme , particularly the lemon bridesmaids dresses.”

“There was such a buzz when Rachael pulled up at Church – the whole town centre seemed to come to a stand still as they watched Rachael leave the car. It was like photographing a celebrity!”

“The rest of the day went beautifully – the sun was shining and the guests were able to enjoy drinks on the lawn whilst I whisked Rachael and Jamie off for their photographs.”

 

How did you meet?

“We met in our local pub one evening.”

“I used to go regularly with my friends on a Tuesday evening to do the pub quiz and this particular night Jamie was working as the quiz master.”

“As he was walking past me and my friends were looking at him working out if he was gay!”

“He had just got back from working in Africa as cabin crew so we were all a bit dubious if he was or not. Luckily for me he wasn’t!”

“After talking most of the night I plucked up the courage to leave my number on the table we were sitting at and that night after staring at my phone he finally text and then we went on our first date.”

 

When did you get engaged?

“We got engaged in Mexico on the 1st may 2013.”

“We had just been for a meal and Jamie wanted to go for a walk on the beach. Next thing I knew he was down on one knee.”

 

Tell us about your wedding planning journey

“The planning wasn’t as stressful as I thought.”

“As we had two years to plan it we seemed to be quite organised.”

“We both sat down and decided on the things we really wanted to do and what to include.”

“My mum helped a lot and we did a lot of the decorations ourselves as both I and my mum are quite crafty and thought it would make a nice touch to do most ourselves.”

“The venue that we picked was amazing.”

“Jamie used to work there when he was younger  and I used to always drive past and think ‘this is where I would love my wedding to be’ so we had to do it.”

“The rest of the planning just all happened at once – we were on a roll and ended up booking and buying most things with still a year to go!”

“It got a little stressful nearer the end with the finer details but I loved every minute of it and would do it all again!!”

 

When did you get married?

“We got married 2 years after our Engagement on the 1st may 2015.”

 

What was the best bit of your day?

“The best part of the day was seeing all the hard work put in finally come together.”

“The weather was amazing, I married my best friend and everyone had a fab time.”

 

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

“Plan in advance! Don’t leave things till the last minute and if you have a budget add extra on top of it!”

Thank you so much to Rachel for sharing this stunning Spring Wedding.

I just love the lemon yellow palette, its such a fresh colour for spring mixed with grey to contrast.

I also love the table  names with a dateline of the couples relationship, a really clever idea.

You’ve got the THE Dress but sometimes the look, and the dress requires a little extra oomph to show it at its best which is where a Wedding Hoop or bridal Petticoat comes in.

Moonrise Lingerie are pleased to announce that they now offer a bridal petticoat hire service on a selection of their wedding hoops.

Plenty of brides to be are looking for bargains in all areas of their wedding including shopping for their dresses on the high street.

Claire Amelia Bridal Wear – Kickstarting a Grand Collection

 

There are so many decisions with a Wedding, and unless you have that “US song”, the choice for first dance songs has to be another conundrum that couples have to contend with.

The first dance is always a special moment at any wedding, the vows have been exchanged and the rings are on, and then it is the time for the newly weds to take to the floor.

Apart from worrying whether or not they’ll trip over each other’s feet, the couple will also have had to make the tough decision of song choice.

Some couples go for conventional choices, whilst some go for the out and out alternative.

Some awesome advice from music entertainment agency Matchbox Music is to you is to choose a song that means something to both of you and not just something to please the crowd.

After all, it is your special day and if you want your first dance to be to a guilty pleasure, we’re sure your guests will indulge you.

Top 5 First Dance Songs For Your Wedding

There are so many decisions with a Wedding, and unless you have that “US song”,  the choice for first dance songs has to be another conundrum that couples have to contend with.

The first dance is always a special moment at any wedding, the vows have been exchanged and the rings are on, and then it is the time for the newly weds to take to the floor.

Apart from worrying whether or not they’ll trip over each other’s feet, the couple will also have had to make the tough decision of song choice.

Some couples go for conventional choices, whilst some go for the out and out alternative.

Some awesome advice from music entertainment agency Matchbox Music is to you is to choose a song that means something to both of you and not just something to please the crowd.

After all, it is your special day and if you want your first dance to be to a guilty pleasure, we’re sure your guests will indulge you.

For some inspiration, here are Matchbox Music’s top 5 First Dance songs that bride and grooms have requested our live bands perform.

 

John Legend – All Of Me

Fast becoming a modern day classic and a very popular first dance, All of Me ticks all the boxes when it comes to the perfect wedding dance.

Grammy winning songwriter John Legend wrote the song as a dedication to his wife, which is maybe why the heartfelt lyrics can’t help but move you.

The slow tempo also means you won’t have to worry about any tricky dance moves and can just enjoy the moment.

 

Al Green – Let’s Stay Together

Who say’s the old ones aren’t the best?

Lets Stay Together has been a first dance classic for many couples, with his smooth soul vocal and laid back R&B grooves, Al Green has been filling wedding dance floors for years.

With lyrics such as, “Let’s stay together, loving you whether, times are good or bad, happy or sad” you can see why this has remained a first dance favourite, it’s almost a wedding vow in itself!

Another benefit of this song is it won’t be lost on the older generation, so even the mother of the bride will have no excuse to not join in for a dance, once the bride and groom have had their chance to shine of course!

Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud

Arguably one of the biggest artists of the past few years, you would have had to have been living under a rock to have not heard of Ed Sheeran.

The ginger behemoth has been taking the world by storm and his 2014 single Thinking Out Loud didn’t disappoint.

For newly weds looking for something more current, Thinking out Loud is a great choice.

Not only is it a beautifully crafted love song, but the accompanying music video is nothing short of inspiring, if your other half is up to the challenge, learning the dance routine is sure to leave your guests blown away!

 

Aerosmith – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing

Despite being the title soundtrack to the 1998 film Armageddon, in which the world is almost destroyed by a giant asteroid, I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing is actually a popular choice for wedding first dances.

Whether it’s the moving lyrics, Steven Tyler’s epic rock vocal, or a combination of the two, there is nothing like a good old rock ballad to show off the passion between the newly weds.

 

matchbox music, music entertainment agency, first dance, first dance choice, top 5 first dance choices

 

Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are

With so many hits under his belt, it would be fair to say you wouldn’t be short of options when picking a Bruno Mars song for a first wedding dance.

All though some people may go for the obvious Marry You option, we feel that Just The Way You Are is by far the classier and more understated choice.

Mars drew inspiration from Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight and Joe Cocker’s You Are So Beautiful when penning the hit, and we think he’s done a pretty good job of capturing those sentiments.

We can’t imagine there are many brides who don’t want to be told “ You are amazing, just the way you are” and when the funky beat kicks in your guests will be dancing away with you.

 

Matchbox hope that their tips has been helpful, if you are a bride or groom and are still undecided about which first dance song you want your wedding band to play, grab your other half and give our top 5 tunes a listen (Crazy dance moves optional).

Claire Amelia Bridal Wear – Kickstarting a Grand Collection

Today I’m thrilled to tell you all about The Bridal Emporium, & British designer Claire Amelia Toole who is taking the plunge starting her own Bridal wear collection after working 3 and a half years in the wedding industry.

 

Amy & Paul May 2015, claire amelia bridal wear, the bridal emporium, kickstarter project

 

Claire trained for five years in fashion, tailoring and historical costume at the University of Hull.

She then worked for a couple of bridal shops in Yorkshire before opening her own boutique ‘The Bridal Emporium’ in Leeds, September 2014.

The boutique celebrates independent British designers, sourced locally and nationally.

She stocks true vintage bridal wear and offers a bespoke couture service in house to brides to be.

Her ultimate dream, to go a step further and make her own wedding dress collection is now coming to fruition with launching a Kickstarter campaign this June.

Claire explained;

“I want to offer a bridal wear collection that has been fully designed and hand made in Britain, under the brand name ‘Claire Amelia Bridal Wear’.”

“After designing and making bespoke wedding dresses for brides to be in my store The Bridal Emporium, I’m so excited to design my own collection where I can explore all my dreams, inspirations and put them into wedding dresses”

 

 claire amelia bridal wear, the bridal emporium, kickstarter project

Claire says after listening to bride’s needs, she discovered that they are conscious of purchasing products that are made locally and like the idea that their dress has been made in Britain.

She sells many independent British designers in store at The Bridal Emporium, based in the Grand Arcade, Leeds, also offering a platform for small businesses, to sell their products to the bridal party.

She continued:

“I would love your support in making my dream a reality, please take time to read the Kickstarter profile and pledge. I have a small, young team in store at The Bridal Emporium and we’re super excited to have the opportunity to develop our own range, it would offer us huge potential.”

 

The Kickstarter project is in 4 parts, part 1 has been launched for 30 days on 24/06/15 and needs to raise minimum £2,200 in 30 days for the funding to process.

Each part will become live after one another; this secures Claire Amelia to make 4 wedding dresses, branding and marketing, with an ultimate collection of 16 wedding dresses from the 4 parts.

The collection would be made in sizes 6 to 22 UK, so there is a good range of sizes for brides to try on.

Very country chic, vintage inspired designs to suit all shapes and sizes.

From fully lace tea length dresses, unstructured slip dresses to two piece full skirt sets.

The collection has been inspired by early 1900’s fashions, English country gardens and Claire Amelia has even designed her own printed fabric to incorporate into the wedding dresses.

Of which, they have hand drawn and would like to laser cut the fabric out themselves, which really gives the collection a personal touch.

 

 claire amelia bridal wear, the bridal emporium, kickstarter project

 

The funding would enable Claire Amelia to purchase the materials, organise branding and marketing the collection.

Once the collection was made, a photo shoot would be next on the agenda, detailed pictures would enable Claire Amelia to offer the dresses for sale via The Bridal Emporiums online store as well as in store.

The young entrepreneur’s aim and ambition is to eventually be in a position to wholesale the collection out to other bridal shops, build the brand up so they offer wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses and accessories.

All at affordable prices, designed and hand made in Britain by skilled seamstresses.

Keeping a valuable craft in Britain is important to Claire Amelia, as she believes there are so many talented people within our country, those influenced by family and graduates seeking a skilled job.

 

If 1,000 pledged only £2 they would hit target, to help the Brand make part 1 of the wedding dress collection!
