Good luck, katie and Mark for Saturday. The marquee and gardens we’re looking great earlier today! Can’t wait to see it all finished
An American twist on a seating plan.
Instead of drawing up a board showing everyone where they are sitting.
Why not make a bit of fun out of it, by allowing guests to find their name in a more creative way.
Everyone finds the label with their name on it, and then on the reverse there will be instructions about where to sit.
It can also act as a favour, be attached to the first drink or just as a way of enhancing the theme and giving guests a talking/mingling point.
Here are some ideas to inspire you.
This was a great wedding to plan.
A fighter pilot from America and his beautiful Cambridge girlfriend. Planned in only a few months, due to his work schedule.
A three room marquee for 170 guests in their garden at home. With the father of the bride leading the co-ordination of the day.
A very emotional church service, followed the best food and drink and all topped off by a fun evening party and the first snow made for some magical photos.

This week i was contacted by a new cake company.
Mr Cake is a michelin trained chef, who has set up his business in Cambridge.
His designs look very clean, and he offers a bespoke service free of charge.
He also does favours and party cakes too.
Just need to taste some now, perhaps i will ask for some freebies. His choice of fillings and cake flavours is really mouth watering.
This rainy May 1st, and i am searching for inspiration for a moodboard.
I realised that some of the traditional ‘always there’ elements of weddings from the last 50 years are slowly becoming less popular. You can have an unusual one of a kind wedding, whilst still keeping some traditions.
Here are some of the things i love that are becoming less common features.
Sugared almonds -
Cake boxes -
lucky horseshoes as a gift to the bride -
Reading out cards from guests who couldn’t attend! One of my favourite traditions for the speeches that is very rare these days.
Most are there for a reason, and all of them can be modernised.
But the new traditions are good too – like celebrating for an entire weekend!!
