Save the Date - The Wedding Event with a Difference

Ok so I think I need to dive right in and just clarify... I am not getting married!!

However, when I was asked if I was available to help out at the Save the Date wedding event last Sunday (21st February), I absolutely jumped at the chance. I'd already heard great things about the event - my friend has been to every single show since it began. 

Plus, it was a great opportunity to get some practice at editing too, as at the bottom of this post is a link to a YouTube video from the day.




I was kind of under the impression that I needed to be a blushing bride to be, or at least a bridesmaid, to go to the event, but I was SO wrong. Ok, so that definitely was the majority of the clientele, but honestly, it's just such a lovely day out too.



I'm not sure if I should admit this, but I know I'm not on my own with this one, I kiiiiinda have a wedding board on pinterest, just.. you know.. incase ;) and it was basically like that scene in Mary Poppins where she jumps into the painting and everything comes to life - this event was literally my pinterest board in life form! 


Sequin table tops, rose golds, quirky cakes and dresses with no poofy skirt in sight - now THIS is why it's called 'Save the Date - Wedding Event with a Difference'! I had a good chat with lots of the lovely creative people on stands there, I got to sample some delicious foods and even signed up for a calligraphy course! (here was me thinking I was there to work ;) )


I didn't get to take many photos whilst I was there as I decided to concentrate on getting video footage for you, (and eat the samples of chocolate) so I have used the lovely Rachel Connerton's work from Rachael Connerton Photography in this post, because her work is blummin' stunning and it was so great to see her in action taking shots of the bride (you can see that in the video too).






If you are a bride to be, groom, mother of the bride, bridesmaid... oooorrr none of the above, then I can't recommend getting yourself tickets for the next show in October enough - they happen twice a year - whether I get a ring on it or not - I'll be there! <3

Stacking Rings

Leave a Comment

Hello lovelies,

I wanted to share a short and sweet post with you today about my love for stacking rings - those of you who follow my Instagram may have already picked up on this, but I just love wearing as many rings on my hand as possible - I literally feel naked without them!

There's so many different styles out there, whether you like a bit of bling or prefer something a little more simple.

Here are a few of my favourites.



The thing I particularly love about these rings is the arrow design, I'm going through a phase of liking anything with arrows on at the minute - jeeze, keep me away from a tattoo parlour! I also love the mixture of metals, you may have noticed by now but I love metallic, whether that be gold, silver or of course copper, and I love that these rings don't limit you to sticking to one colour.

I think they look so much more than £26 too - bonus! You can buy them here :)

If you want to know more about Gemporia - you can watch there latest advert below.





Notonthehighstreet.com has always been one of my personal favourite places to pick up something a little different, I used this site a lot whilst I was in Australia to send christmas and birthday presents to friends/family as I could always rely on it to deliver the goods without me having to check it first!

I've recently stumbled across this gorgeous jewellery brand called 'Shona Jewellery' on there, and although her prices are a little higher than the average stacking ring on the website (£155 each), it's easy to see why - they stand out a mile! These Tile Rings are a particular favourite of mine as they scream minimal but still have a quirky element to them with the mix of metals.
You can even have the gold tile set with a diamond - hello beautiful!




Ok, this is a weird one because I don't actually own any pieces of Daniella Draper jewellery, yet I feel a connection to it because my friend Lisa is literally adorned in her collection and I can't help but smile whenever I see an item of theirs.
Starting from a  kitchen table in Cleethorpes, Daniella has gone from strength to strength and has recently opened her second store, a flagship in Lincoln - and her stacking rings are on my lust list!
If you're intrigued to know more about the brand I've included a little video that I've stumbled across on YouTube - don't get me started on how beautiful the family is too. Watching the video makes me want to go blonde, draw some freckles on and walk my dog (I don't even have one!) on the beach...

...but anyway, back to the jewellery!
These Midi Stack Party rings are too cute and not a bad price at all for £75 for 3 - especially when they are handmade. Love, love, love.

The fact that they've been seen on Natasha Khan from Bat for Lashes gives them obvious extra cool credentials!




There were far too many choices on the Gemporia site not to mention another set of stacking rings that caught my eye!
I'm a sucker for turquoise jewellery and as a kid was obsessed with layering as many turquoise gem necklaces I could - things have toned down slightly since then and I think the odd flash of it is plenty for now - that's until I go through the good old boho stage again that happens around June every year and I'll no doubt be digging it all out ;)

I actually can't believe these sterling silver rings are only £43! Mind you, they're on sale so I can't imagine them hanging round for long.

I hope you've enjoyed this post and it's inspired you in some way - or at least introduced you to a new brand or two.

Have a beautiful day!
