I saw these Alison Lou “Mrs” wedding rings over on The Cut and think that they are fabulous, for those wanting something a bit different! They can be customised with your married name initial and can come in 14 carat white gold, rose gold or yellow gold. The stone can be a black or white diamond, ruby, sapphire or emerald!
They are $950 which is around £630, so not a bad price for a wedding ring. What do you think? Do you like them, or are they a bit much for you? I think I would quite like one as well as a more traditional wedding ring (greedy I know!) so that I could wear it sometimes for the right occasion xx
Kitty & Dulcie are a vintage inspired bridal gown company with gorgeous dresses all under £400! You may remember me posting about Kitty & Dulcie last year? Well, they have a gorgeous new collection that I wanted to share with you – The Country Set Collection.

This 50’s style Dame Dulcie (£350) bridal gown is knee length, ivory lace and satin. Seen here with the Hippy Chic Comb (£155) and Hippy Chic cuff (£165) from Flo & Percy.

Harry Rocks is a London based jewellery brand that make it their mission to create individual, fabulously unique pieces by hand using sterling silver, gold plate and semi precious stones. They have a gorgeous bridal collection – perfect for a bride or bridesmaid.
I was very excited to receive my very own Harry Rocks gem last week – this Agnes Vintage Locket Bracelet shown below. I just love that each locket is a one off vintage find, hand sourced from antique markets on a pretty string of fresh water pearls and finished with their signature feather.
Isn’t it pretty… think I may have to invest in the matching necklace!
We are definitely partial to a macaron and a martini here at Temple Gregory, so love this from OhLaLa.

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!
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
Our clients are often asking us about entertainment ideas for their weddings and events – usually wanting something different and something their guests will remember and be talking about for a while! Over the next few weeks we will be looking at various options on the blog and today we are starting with celebrities.
Strictly Come Dancing’s Kristina Rihanoff & Robin Windsor at a Temple Gregory event at The Savoy
On a very basic level many weddings and events are the same. There are people dressed nicely, a carefully planned menu, and some form of music, dancing, or entertainment to keep people busy. This is simply the world of events, and it is probably why many people who wish to set their wedding or event apart consider something a bit different. A celebrity guest is not something you see at every event, so definitely an option to consider. This is not to say that your event will not be special without one, it is just something to think about if you are looking for a little extra.
The best way of finding your celebrity is through an agency. For example, you may want to consider booking celebrity speakers through MN2S. This agency, and others like it, exist specifically to represent celebrities and help people to book them for speaking events or performances. So once you know what kind of celebrity you would like (sports personality, speaker, singer or dancer to name a few) and if you do not have a planner to do it for you, research which agencies best represent that field and make some enquiries.
What do you think – is this something you would want for your wedding or event? Have you done it in the past?
Keep a look out for more in our Entertainment series of blog posts over the next few weeks x
