World Inspired Tents scoop a 2012 Wedding Industry Award

World Inspired Tents weddings

It has been lovely in recent week’s to discover that a number of businesses listed on the directory have won regional awards at the 2012 Wedding Industry Awards.  One of those companies is World Inspired Tents who create magical and memorable wedding reception spaces inside their beautiful giant tipis.

Word Inspired Tents were awarded ‘best marquee supplier’ for the South West region in this year’s Wedding Industry Awards, a wonderful accolade.  The awards are the first fully independent scheme to officially recognise the very best suppliers in the industry, with companies nominated entirely by their customers.

Unbeknown to the team at World Inspired Tents, one of their Devon brides who used them for her summer wedding had nominated them for the award.  Following the nomination, World Inspired Tents had to spread the word asking previous customers to vote for them in order to be short listed.  They received a fantastic response, and the votes came flooding in along with personal emails telling the team how their tipis and service had helped to make so many wedding days so special.

Get involved with the Love My Dress ‘Vintage Wedding Gallery’

Charlie

Wow – what an incredible and super lovely idea from Annabel at Love My Dress.  She is creating a gallery of vintage wedding photos on her blog that have been contributed by her readers.  She’s already posted some gorgeous photographs and is looking for lots more from the last 100 years.

I’m going home to visit my family this weekend and if my mom will let me I’m going to scan in a photo of my parents on their wedding day and submitting it to Annabel for the gallery.  I’ll make sure I post a picture here too.

I would encourage all of you to do the same, whether it be a photo of your parents, your grandparents or wider family – this is a truly lovely idea that we can all be a part of celebrating marriage through the years.

Sneak peek of my day out with Mark Tattersall shooting a pretty picnic of cakes and sweetpeas

Charlie

Today has been utterly lovely despite a lot of driving!  I met up with Mark Tattersall, the lovely man-behind-the-lens of our wedding photos, near his home in Lancashire.  After a picnic lunch and a catch up at a gorgeous estate, we set up a mini picnic inspired shoot on the lawn.

This is my ‘behind the scenes’ shot of the real photographer taking the photos that will soon be posted.  The English sweetpeas are from Blossom Flowers in Manchester, and those stunning cupcakes are from And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon.  Full details coming soon and some great photos!

A weekend of wedding planning

Charlie

Over the Bank Holiday weekend Mr Rigg and I visited my family in the Cotswolds.  Mr Rigg’s parents also joined us and we had a lovely weekend, showing them around my home village, the local church, and discussing our ideas for our wedding.

Oh, and we all celebrated Mr Rigg getting a year older!

Hopefully more on this and other wedding loveliness to come!

A short update

Charlie

spring daffodils

I have been somewhat absent from the blog for a number of weeks, maybe even months now, I have lost track.

I haven’t been well over the Christmas break but am slowly making steps to change parts of my life to get me back on track.  Already I am starting to feel myself returning and with that I hope to be back with lots of wedding loveliness, and perhaps even some news on my own wedding planning.

Back from the wedding fayre

gettingready

So this was me on Friday – madly getting ready for The Great Big Green Wedding Fayre.  I have survived the weekend, albeit it a little tired (!), and promise to get some photos and details posted this evening.  My partner and I are off on holiday to Italy on Friday, so it’s that mad pre-holiday rush at the moment.

The Real Cut Flower Garden featured in Country Living Magazine

Charlie

One of the lovely businesses listed on The Natural Wedding Company has been featured in Country Living magazine. 

The June edition which is now available, has a short but lovely piece on The Real Cut Flower Garden, which is run by Charlie Ryrie.  Charlie provides seasonal wedding flowers, and as the Country Living article says ‘Brides can even commission favourites to be grown and can visit to see their flowers growing.’
