A Grey Affair

Forget 50 shades of grey, soft grey is one of my absolute favourites when it comes to wedding colours. It’s not a choice that many people may make, however when used alongside other stunning colour tones such as dusky pink, berry tones, peach twists or simple nudes it can shout out, ‘stunning alternative’ to typical wedding colour schemes.

If you want a base colour, a stylish base colour that pops out using a sophisticated look, then look no further. I mean, look at this suit for starters.

Grey can be used for a frosty winter style using colours and textures, such as the ones used in the bouquet below. For a more striking look you can use brighter tones and textures. It really is an all-rounder.

This dress is something that I can only really say WOW to. The colour, tone and intricate detail really are a one off, WOW!

When using this colour I always think it’s best to use it as a main colour, for example, this table setting has the grey overlay/table cloth as it’s base colour with small grey accents being used throughout. The main colour pop is being demonstrated through the flowers, using tones of your chosen colour will add class and style as well as colour interest.

Grey can be used as the main colour to allow the colour to flow, see the beautiful chair décor and wedding cake below, perfect examples of how to use the colour to frame your lovely flower displays.

Just look at this stunning cake made by one of our wonderful friends. Nat from yummy little cakes really has shown how to use grey when making beautiful wedding cakes.

The Truly Stunning City Rooms

It’s a Thursday night and i am still catching up from the weekends events. I had the pleasure of exhibiting at the stunning City Rooms in Leicester on Sunday and it was a great event, hosted by a great group of people with lovely couples in attendance.

If you haven’t found your wedding venue yet and would love a ‘GRAND’ city centre wedding venue, then look no further! I have had the pleasure of spending more time at this lovely venue of late, first with Eve Lily’s 3rd Birthday Party and since styling photo shoots, all soon to be revealed! (A little squeal of excitement every time i mention this, as the pictures are just amazing! Thanks to Sarah Salotti that is).

I’m not sure which part is my favourite about this venue, I think it may have something to do with the overall class and opulence the ballroom, bar and the grand staircase just ooze! See for yourself.

I am very much looking forward to meeting with the couples I have spoken to since Sunday, as I can’t wait to get chatting about weddings! As always there were the usual fun crowd of suppliers in attendance, some of which we get to see quite a lot which makes us very lucky.

One of our new friends also attended and I am so pleased we know them as they are just fabulous when it comes to pampering you! As everyone know’s when it comes to, day to day life we rarely get time to pamper ourselves, maybe the odd foot massage or manicure if we are lucky. We all know we should take more care of ourselves but life just seems to get in the way! Well when it comes to weddings this bad habit needs to change. as on your wedding day there is nothing more important than looking and feeling your best!

If you don’t already know of the Retreat Spa in Oadby then go check them out, Dawn and Faye are just fabulous and will make sure you feel a million dollars on every visit, I can certainly vouch for that, as I have had the pleasure of some amazing treatments from them. Their relax, restore and revive saying is 100% the company through and through.

I will be letting you know more about this fab beauty spa soon, in the meantime get on the phone and see just what i am talking about!
