“You are your own Alternative” – Challenging the definition of the Alternative Wedding

Its something that has always intrigued me.. what exactly is the “Alternative Wedding”? It can probably be defined as non traditional, quirky, creative and about the independent couple but today I want to challenge the way we see weddings. Over the last few years I have seen lots of social media from wedding suppliers “looking” for these so called alternative Weddings or couples. The Wedding Industry kind of gets a little bit obsessed with being different all the time which is good in a way as it keeps things interesting. Keeping an open and exercising the creative mind is great, but not to the detriment of those wanting something a...

The Big Post Wedding Letdown, and How to Cope!

Today I want to focus on the the big Post wedding Let Down, a little spoken of, but very much experienced thing, and discuss some coping strategies to come through the other side. The Wedding to Wedded transition can be made smoother by being prepared for the blues before they happen. This may appeal more to the Grooms but I want to come at it from a sporting analogy, say the Olympics in 2012, or the Commonwealth Games in 2014 or the end of the World Cup. These events are a  spectacle of wonderment with huge national achievements, highs, lows, tears and sweat, and we  invest our time, our passion...

It started with Hello… A friendly Introduction

Hello! Its a simple word but one that is so important in introduction. From when we are tiny tots to when we go to school, to starting work and in every day life, its a word we constantly use. Turning the focus to Weddings, that is something that would not happen without the word being said. From that simple hello, friendships blossom, and relationships grow. So today as we enter a brand new year I want to  offer a friendly introduction to me if you don’t already know me. My name is Alison Tinlin, and I am based in Glasgow, Scotland. My Company is Plans and Presents and until recently...

Today I am delighted to re – visit and share the fabulousness that has adorned the pages of the Wedding Blog  this week.

The brief for the day...

A Colourful & Funky London Pre Wedding Shoot

Today I am excited to share this colourful & funky London pre wedding shoot. Shots were captured on location at Waterloo and the Southbank by Jamie Penfold of Memories and Emotions Photography.     I hand over to Jamie to share his recollections of an epic day…   “Wedding photography can be boring right? Oh how wrong can you be?!” “I’ve always said that at the end of the day, as a wedding photographer, I’ll deliver whatever it is my couples want.” “Each couple is different. Every wedding is different. And it’s why I love my job. The variety is huge!” “And people like Lola and Ken are the reason why...
