How did you get into bridal blogging? Whimsical Wonderland Weddings was founded in April 2010, whilst planning my own wedding day. From personal musings and a place bookmark my wedding finds, it grew into a resource followed by couples. When devastatingly we decided to cancel our wedding six weeks before hand (due to health problems), I could not bear to say goodbye to Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and the community I had established. So I continued in my quest to assist and inspire other couples and to promote the amazing UK wedding industry. We got married in September 2015.
What do you love most about weddings? The unique story each couple has to tell and the personality they infuse into their wedding celebration.
What’s the most underrated aspect of any ceremony? The vows and music create such an atmosphere and personal feeling. I love it when couples opt for personal hand written vows to one another. It's so meaningful.
Your secret to staying calm under pressure? Stay focused on the marriage rather than the wedding. Work towards wedding planning as a team and you can't go far wrong.
Most unique wedding you’ve ever featured? I have featured some amazing weddings including woodland weddings, a wedding hosted in a big top circus tent and a rainbow railway wedding. Anything really does go.
Your number one piece of advice for any blushing bride? Stay true to you both as a couple and include elements that you both love and adore. Write a list of your shared interests and loves, it's a great starting point when wedding planning. Don't worry about color coordinating and invest in great photography and videography. 0ops sorry that was more than one...
