A long lazy Sunday lunch with friends is a glorious thing...and yesterday's was just that...( thanks Caro and Charles!)...but with an epic length of some seven hours and a few glasses of wine, my head today is blogless - blogged out - a blog-free zone...
However, I found this and think it is worth sharing ...The Wedding Trend Report 2015
I have always been intrigued by the idea that fashion affects everything we do, from what we wear to the way we decorate our houses, from what we eat to the way we plan our gardens. Who'd have thought twenty years ago that we would 'distress' furniture - paint it and then scuff it to make it look old? Who'd have thought we would plant wild gardens and make meadows instead of making neat borders of bright annuals?
Well, so it is with weddings. A traditional church wedding just doesn't do anything for me - I love the move towards more individual weddings - weddings on beaches, in woods, in our gardens - and that informality reflected in what we wear and what we eat and, of course, in the celebrant we choose to celebrate the wedding to make it special and unique - but more of that in another blog...
In the report's Venues and Locations section, I love this woodland setting -
- and also the tee pees lit for an evening ceremony.
The conclusion to this part of the report is that couples are looking for somewhere unique, which will reflect their personalities - I think, from experience, I would add to that, somewhere they know friends and family will love too.
