It’s fair to say that every bride wishes to look like the very best version of herself on her wedding day. Your wedding dress should look and feel like the most fabulous dress you have ever worn…and will ever wear!

The style of your wedding dress is definitely one of the most important factors to consider and it should emphasize and enhance your good points while cleverly disguising and drawing attention away from the parts of you that you like less.

…think about your skin tone!

When choosing the colour of your wedding dress, your most important consideration should be your skin tone. As an olive skin-tone who looks awful in white along with a surprising number of other colours, I know how important colour choices are. Warmer colours such as shades of pale gold, pink or blush often work much better on paler skinned brides than a ghosty white.

…think about your venue!

When you begin thinking about your wedding dress, consider  whether your venue is traditional or modern, formal or relaxed. Most brides prefer not to put practicality before preference but you may also want to think about the events of your day.

If you’re marrying in church, please remember that in countries like Italy, churches have, often stringent, rules and regulations regarding dress, both for the bride and for her guests.

…think about the time of year!

If you are marrying abroad the heat at your chosen time of year is a very important factor, you don’t want to feel uncomfortably hot or have difficulty moving on a summer’s days.

Good luck to all those intrepid girls heading out to find their dream dress…enjoy the experience, it’s one of the most fun preparations you’ll make for your wedding day!


Once upon a time, a wedding gift registry was a truly valuable thing, but nowadays, when most couples either already live together or have their own houses, and have pretty much everything they could possibly need, a list of wedding gifts can be quite difficult to put together. After all, what on earth do you buy the couple who has absolutely everything…including a toaster and a casserole dish?

If you’re planning or considering a wedding, whether at home or abroad, you will, no doubt, have realized that they’re fairly expensive events. Naturally, I believe wedding photography is a wonderful investment and will be repaid countless times over other years as you look at your wedding photographs and bring back lovely memories.

If anything your wedding album and the photographs it  contains will increase in their value to you as you come to cherish them more and more. However, at the wedding planning stage, photography can be one of those elements that is sidelined because of the cost implications.

If you’ reconsidering a core wedding photography service, that fits within your wedding budget but would dearly like to add extra elements or option to your service, then why not add these options to your wedding gift list and allow your guests to buy these for you.

By adding these elements to your wedding gift list, you give your family and friends the opportunity to buy you a gift that you will cherish forever and a gift that will truly keep giving you happiness throughout the years! Although it won’t toast your bread for you!
