Another busy week on our wedding blog with wedding hampers as unique wedding gifts, some gorgeous wedding wraps and some absolute stunning photography. So here’s a quick catch up of all our wedding chat over the past week!


We kicked off with something a little unusual but bespoke and unique at the same time. We introduced Hampers by Lucy, she makes wonderful bespoke hampers to your own requirements based on the recipient!

Well that’s our quick little roundup of this weeks wedding talk. Keep an eye out next week for our wedding mood board and more wedding wondefulness!







It’s often difficult to think of gifts for wedding party members that are both personal and special. So we thought a personalised hamper would make a wonderful gift for a Bridesmaid, Best Man or even The Groom to open on the morning of the wedding itself. Let me hand you over to Lucy and see what she has to say about her personalised gift hampers!


Q: Tell us a little bit about Lucy’s Hampers. How you got started and how long you’ve been going etc?

Hampers by Lucy launched almost two years ago, in October 2013. I was on maternity leave & took the decision to see whether I could build something I enjoyed doing for friends & family into a business.


Q: What are your most popular hampers when it comes to weddings, hen parties or even honeymoons?

The Luxury Wedding Hamper is exceptionally popular, the contents are hand-picked and unique, plus the hamper is personalised (as they all are) for the recipients. The Bride to Be Hamper is also a top-seller, containing gorgeous (& practical) treats for the Bride to Be!


Q: What advice can you pass on to our Brides to Be when it comes to planning their wedding day or the day itself?

I married my soul mate in 2007 and I have to say that I worried about a lot of small things in the run-up to the wedding. When it comes down to it, all that matters if you have each other, and your nearest & dearest there to celebrate with you. Chair covers and shades for sashes don’t really matter in the end. The best piece of advice we were given before the day was to make sure we caught up with one another throughout the day, just to be together and watch the celebrations, take it all in. You can become so wrapped up in speaking to guests that you forget each other!


Q: A personalised hamper would make a great wedding gift. What do you need to get started to make a Hamper by Lucy really special & personal?

As much or as little information you have can be turned into a gorgeous gift. I can personalise a hamper right down to matching the ribbons to the wedding colour scheme!


Q: What’s been your most special Hamper you’ve ever made?

Every hamper is special, it’s such a privilege to be asked to create a gift for someone. I recently created a Bride To Be Hamper which included items coordinating with the couple’s wedding stationary. I have also created gifts for Grooms To Be, one in particaular included a keyring engraved with the words ‘you hold the key to my heart’. It’s such an honour to be involved in such a magical time.


Q: How long does it take you to prepare one of your Hampers & what price range do you cater for?

It can take anything from hours to weeks, depending on what the client would like included. I have a range of gifts perfect for Bridesmaids from just £8.99. At the top end of the budget the cost depends entirely on what will be included!


So what a great way to make a beautifully personalised gift without breaking the budget as well. You can be sure that each hamper is made with dedication and loving care to make it that bit extra special. To find out more about Lucy’s Hampers then visit her website or look her up on twitter!





Something old,


something new,


something borrowed,


something blue,


and a silver sixpence for her shoe!


Lucky Sixpence Wedding Garter


A traditional saying that I’m sure even most modern Brides will be aware of? It stems from Old English folklore I believe that the silver sixpence is to bring good luck to the happy couple and that the something blue and something old is said to distract the Evil Eye, believed to render the new bride barren!



Not being ones to break a long standing tradition or English folklore, Tanya, of Moonrise Lingerie has recently introduced her very own ‘Lucky Sixpence’ wedding garters. Made from a very light ivory lace and wonderfully finished with a baby blue ribbon and bow with a lucky sixpence charm for the upcoming Bride to Be.


Personalised Wedding Garters

Tanya makes her wedding garters herself, and the beauty is that she is able to change the colour of the ribbon and bow to suit the colour theme of your wedding as well as being able to make a wedding garter to suit any size of leg!


Football Team Wedding Garters

Following on from the success of her ‘Lucky Sixpence’ garter and from many requests, Tanya has continued to design some lovely new wedding garter designs. Many of these have been specific to a Brides request from an Irish themed garter in green with a lucky four leaf clover charm to garters with a favourite football teams colours, either their own team or that of their new hubbies team!


Tanya’s new garters have really caught the eyes of many new Brides to Be who have even been kind enough to send her a nice review once they’ve received their personalised wedding garter, click here to read what our Brides to Be have had to say!

If you’d like your own wedding garter with a slightly personalised touch in some way then feel free to get in touch with Tanya at and put her to the challenge! Her garters range in price from £8 to £16.99 depending on the design you would like.

You can always ‘LIKE’ our Facebook page and see what other fanciful designs Tanya comes up with for other Brides to Be!

More often than not I come across posts on Facebook Groups from Brides to Be asking for suggestions and ideas for wedding gifts for Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride, Best Man and Flowergirls. When buying gifts for all these guests the costs soon start adding up, so today I’d like to introduce you to Belle’s Charms! A great choice of charms and keepsakes that can be personalised as a memento of your Wedding Day and that says a special ‘Thank-You’ for being part of your Special Day. I took some time to find out from Louise about Belle’s Charms;



Why did you start Belle’s Charms?

I started Belle’s Charms as I thought there was a gap in the market for unique keepsake keyrings, jewellery & gifts.

What makes Belles Charms so unique and stand out?

Belle’s Charms are unique and stand out as they are made to order. If a customer requires a charm that I haven’t got, I am more than happy to go all out and find the charm they’re after.


What advice can you give to our brides to be when planning their wedding day?

My advice would for Brides to Be, is, shop around and not simply go for the easiest option, take your time on organising your big day.

What is your most favourite charm/ jewellery that you’ve made and why?

My favourite item to make is wedding bracelets, as I love talking to the Bride to Be and helping them out the best I can. I also love the idea that a part of me is attending their wedding, be it on a bridesmaid or flowergirl’s wrist.


What does the future have in store for Belle’s Charms?

I hope that Belle’s Charms continues with its success and I’d like to attend more wedding fairs in 2016.

How do brides buy from you?

It is easy to purchase from me. I invoice my customers via PayPal, (no account is needed), and they pay through PayPal or by card. It is all secure or another way to buy is through e-bay.


I’m sure you’ll agree that Louise produces some beautiful pieces that will make gorgeous keepsakes that are both special and individual for your Wedding Day.
