Andy & Kim’s Dunblane Wedding

It is being called the Scottish Royal wedding and whether you are an Andy Murray fan or not, I must say what I saw of the wedding I loved – particularly Kim’s Jenny Packham dress which was just beautiful!

Doesn’t Dunblane Cathedral look beautiful! I love this Twitter post too, that Andy put up on the morning of the wedding…

What are your thoughts on the wedding? Do you like Kim’s dress? Andy’s kilt? I think it all looked great – not sure about the bridesmaid dresses though, but Kim’s dress more than made up for that! xx

Danielle & Ben’s Wedding Film

We have had the pleasure of working with Danielle and Ben on the planning of their beautiful wedding, which took place in June at Northbrook Park in Surrey. As you will see, they are such a gorgeous couple and so happy together – lots of pretty details and outfits too!

This film (from Mark Brown Films) is just fabulous – filmed with vintage Super 8, it really adds something special to it. Marks films always bring a tear to my eye – in a good way!

Highcliffe Castle Preview

We had a wedding at Highcliffe Castle a few weekends ago and I just wanted to share a few of my Instagram pics with you. I will be posting the proper photographer images once received, but this is just a little taster in the meantime!

It is a Castle, so the building itself was obviously amazing. It is now Council owned and that is unfortunately evident in several areas, but it did not take away from the day and we just made sure we covered up any ugly health & safety Council signs!

We had a calligrapher write the table plan onto a big mirror, which we sourced to match the Castle look and feel. It also means that the couple have a new mirror for their house after the wedding.

This is the entrance to the Great Hall inside the Castle and the original columns and top part were just beautiful. Gorgeous flowers too from Emma Lappin Flowers.

We went for a Choccywoccydoodah wedding cake – they make such works of art that it was a real feature sitting in the entrance hall!

The Drawing Room in the Castle was set up for the evening band – with a pretty white LED dance floor and fairy light backdrop.

Hope you enjoyed this short preview and apologies for my bad photography! Fabulous photos (from Kevin Wilson) to follow soon x

Daisy Woodland Wedding

I came across this gorgeous woodland and daisy themed wedding over on fab wedding blog Love My Dress (photography by We Not Me Collective) and just wanted to point you in that direction.

It was actually these bridesmaids outfits that first caught my eye – something different and so pretty. The chiffon tops are from Topshop and the skirts were made by the brides friend.

Cowley Manor Wedding Preview

We had a wedding over the weekend, for Rebecca and Tim, at the beautiful Cowley Manor in the Cotswolds and just wanted to share a few pics with you.

I am sure you can see that these are not the professional photos, they are just a few of my iPhone photos that have been Instagrammed! The professional photos will follow.

Rebecca’s dress was Pronovias and it suited her perfectly. As you can see the bouquet is quite small, which in this case was totally right. Bouquets can sometimes be quite large and hide lots of the dress – this is something to think about when you are choosing your bouquet.

Aah, pretty peonies – my favourite flower!

More pretty flowers placed in the entrance hall at Cowley Manor. You can see from the chairs that the decor is quite quirky and modern.  

Instead of a traditional table plan, we had an escort card (or pebble in this case) table. Each guest had a pebble with their name on in front of the table number they were sitting at.

The names were actually engraved into the stone and guests could take them home as favours.

This is the wedding breakfast room and although my rubbish photography does not do it justice, it gives you an idea! We hired in Ghost chairs, which looked fabulous on the day – especially once all the candles were lit, as they reflected the light beautifully.

We arranged the napkins so that each guest had their own menu slotted in the top, tied with navy ribbon (to match the bridesmaids), a name card slotted in the bottom with a twig of rosemary to finish them off.

This is their pretty wedding cake with the flowers reflected in the mirror behind it.

Again, not the best photography but it gives you an idea of how pretty the room looked when the candles were lit! It really was beautiful.

What do you think? Some very pretty details at this wedding – as well as a very pretty couple! x

The Queens Diamond Jubilee & Past Royal Celebrations

We are actually quite excited and feeling rather patriotic here at Temple Gregory at the moment – with the Queens Diamond Jubilee on its way this weekend, and the London Olympics fast approaching.

The only other monarch to celebrate 60 years in England was Queen Victoria in 1897 – so not something that will happen again in our lifetime.

It would therefore be wrong not to celebrate this on the blog and we would like to dedicate this post to our lovely Queen and share a few of our favourites from her long and eventful reign. First looking at her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. I wish I had a crown like that at my wedding, and look at that tiny waist!

Queen Elizabeth


The Queens Coronation took place later in 1953 following the death of her father George VI. The dress took eight months, three dressmakers and six embroideresses from the Royal School of Needlework to become a reality! It was obviously worth it though – just look how fabulous she looked!

Daily Mail

Gilda & The Royals

It is safe to say that the Queen has an impressive set of jewels! I would love to get a look at her jewellery room – most of us have a box, but I expect she has a wing for all her gorgeous jewels! Why not, she is the Queen afterall.


Daily Mail

Apparently, on her first Commonwealth tour alone the Queen took over 100 different outfits. Add all of the tours she has made since and you get quite an impressive number of dresses – that must be one very large closet!


The Telegraph

Did you know that the iconic colors of Tower Bridge (super close to our Temple Gregory office!) only dates from 1976 when the structure was painted red, white and blue for the Queens Silver Jubilee? Before that, the bridge was painted a chocolate brown – hhmmm, not sure that would be quite so special!

The Queens Golden Jubilee took place in 2002 and this is her on her way to St Pauls Cathedral for a celebratory service.


Apartment Therapy

Isn’t it just amazing what a long a successful reign our Queen has had?! Are you looking forward to this Jubilee weekend – are you getting married during it?

Whatever you are doing have a great one x

Gorgeous Bali Wedding

I recently came across this ridiculously gorgeous Bali wedding on one of my favourite wedding blogs Belle The Magazine and just had to share it. Belle called it “steal worthy” on their post and you can see why!

What do you think? Isn’t it gorgeous! Flowers make such a difference to a wedding, so if you are going to splash out on anything – make it the flowers – and the photographer!

Four Seasons Wedding Preview Pics

I just wanted to share a few preview photos from another of my weddings which took place at the Four Seasons, Hampshire in June this year – the marriage of Gail and Chris.

These beautiful pics are by photographer Eliza Claire – thanks Eliza 🙂

The very fabulous flowers are of course by Emma Lappin of Emma Lappin Flowers. The Four Seasons is such a fantastic venue – every bit the 5 star country house.

I actually had tears in my eyes when I saw the flowers that Emma produced for this wedding – you can only get a tiny bit of how they looked from photos – but I can tell you – wow!

This is a little snippet of the dessert bar we created and macaron tower produced by Genii Cupcakes.

What a gorgeous day and what a gorgeous venue! I will be posting the full wedding soon so look out for that.
