A newlywed London lawyer banishing post-wedding blues with honest discussion about the world of wedding planning. Advice on creating a perfect and personal day for you and one which guests will remember forever.

About me

My name is Abi and I married my husband on 27 May 2017. We have been together around 8 years after meeting at school. We have a little dog and live in our home together in the country just outside of London.

I work in London full-time as a lawyer, something I juggled, like many others, whilst planning our wedding.

Wedding journey

I loved being engaged and used it as a creative outlet which my full-time job didn’t allow. I relished looking through magazines and Pinterest, but quickly had to scale back my vision when I realised our budget constraints.

There were many ups and downs through our wedding planning journey and I found that there was limited, honest discussion of some of the more stressful aspects of the process and decision-making in the wedding industry.

There are many beautiful websites, blogs and magazines providing inspiration but they can make brides and grooms feel that they must plan a perfect wedding for a magazine, rather than one which is personal to them.

I hope to use this blog to delve into those more difficult parts of wedding planning, living together and stress management. Together with ideas on how to create a wedding that is perfect to you and that your friends and family will look back on fondly for years to come.
