Kaley Cuoco, The Big Bang Theory star, celebrated New Years Eve with her wedding!

She had an amazing upside down cake that hung from a chandelier created by Butter End in California.
The wedding was full of laughter as after cutting the cake, Ryan Sweetings smashed cake into Kaleys face.
Kaley looked stunning in her pink Vera Wang dress at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch, California.

OUT WITH EMERALD; MAKE WAY RADIANT ORCHID?

Pantone, the provider of professional colour standards for the design industry, has announced Radiant Orchid as the colour of the year for 2014. “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®

Could we see this colour filter through into weddings in 2014?

Take the 2013 trend of rainbow cakes and use the Radiant Orchid colour range to update this still popular trend to 2014.

Use of macaroons, coloured drinks and funky coloured shoes are still a hot trend for 2014. There are so many beautiful flowers you can use, including the stunning orchid itself. Further flowers matching this 2014 colour trend are hydrangeas, freesias, anemone, tulips, sweet peas, lilac and. Many more.

Winter Weddings

Are you arranging your perfect winter wonderland wedding?

Even if the snow is falling outside, inside can be a cosy igloo for your friends and family. With scented candles, mulled wine and bauble or two you can go as mad as you like.

Here are a few ideas that caught my eye:

Everyone loves chocolate, so what would be better than a hot chocolate bar to warm your guests up.

Hot Chocolate Bar

White trees, made to look like snow and crystals hanging looking like icicles or if you dont have it in the budget to create the below why not try spray painting some white twigs from your garden and buy some crystals to create your own centre pieces.

Prints Charming-Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations are an important start to any wedding, this is your chance to set the theme/colour idea and get your guests excited about what’s to come. You can be as traditional or as funky as you like, but make sure they are YOU!
Wedding invitations don’t have to be expensive, check out your local printing company, head to your nearest Hobby Craft or simply source some fantastic products on a good old google search. My favourite is eBay, you can find some fab deals!

50 Films

A close friend of mine is creating 50 films in a year. Check out his latest here!

The 50 Film Project

Screen Shot 2013-02-10 at 23.07.08

This week I headed down to Sunny Hunstanton, “Sunny” being the operative word! With a wind chill in the minus numbers this was exactly what a Great British day at the beach is all about!

 

When thinking about this weeks video I wondered how appealing the the british seaside is not only in summer but who brave the cold winds and dreary rain to visit coastal towns in the deep of winter, whats open, what do people do and whats the vibe.

In two words it was a “Ghost Town” something which I hope is reflected in this video.

The biggest challenge this week was the cold, I realised when your body goes into survival mode to keep you warm your mind becomes clouded, If it was hot weather I know I would have spent time thinking about the shot and trying out different angles but my mind was…

Wedding Guest Books

There are so many unique ways of keeping hold of those precious messages left by your wedding guests, but don’t stick to the bog standard guest book that will collect dust on the shelf. Check out just a handful of really amazing ideas I came across.

Guest book stones

20130121-225621.jpg

I love this idea! It’s so different and you get to keep them on show in your house as a constant memory. It can add to a rustic themed wedding.
Www.etsy.com provide a huge range and I love these heart ones especially. There is one kit on Etsy that costs $150.00. In this kit you get 150 ore-glossed river rocks, 6 sharpie pens and a wishing stone luminaries sign with a choice of two messages to your guests. Beware of the delivery cost to the UK. You could easily create this quite cheaply by shopping about or buying things separately. Even better, get out in the countryside and start collection some stones.

Guest Book Jenga
Everyone knows the game Jenga and this wedding guest book idea combines wedding guest messages and Jenga, it’s a win win situation! It could even keep your guests entertained in the evening reception. There is a kit by Tumbling Timbers who make handmade Jenga kits for around $100 but again you could create this yourselves with a standard Jenga set going for between £5-£20, you could even look on eBay for a second hand set.

Wedding guest Finger Print Tree
Finger print trees are rally popular and can be used at all memorable celebrations, I created one for my mums 50th birthday party the other day and everyone loved it and took the idea with them. You can create this yourself buy enlarging a tree design you like and adding your wedding/celebration date, pop to hobby craft and grab a range of dew drop ink pads by versa magic and make sure you take baby wipes! You can get guests to leave just their finger prints to create the leaves to your tree and they can add their names if you like. You can then frame the off infer print tree for a gorgeous a gorgeous present. You can also buy the kits with frame from www.notonthehighstreet.co.uk

Polaroid Guest Book
Set up a table with a blank book, pens and a Polaroid camera and get your guests to take funny pictures, position them in the book and leave a message. Great alternative to a guest book.
