Wedding Candles

So I mentioned Candles on the show last week and the fact I drove 60 miles to get some for the wedding. I've never had so many emails in my life. In fact a lovely lady even stopped me on the plane to Italy on Friday so ask how my candle hunt was going. Bless her!

I've decided on these candles from a company called Melt in Waddington in Lancashire. It's a lovely idea, of picking a candle colour and mixing it with a scent of your choice which radiates when you light them. That way whenever you smell that same smell - it will forever remind you of your wedding day.

So see, the 60 miles travelling was worth it and I've got to say the shop is amazing too. Have a look here:

There are loads of different smells from floral, to wintery type fragrances in pale pastel colours to blacks and charcoal too. We've chosent he green in this ohoto - so go on the wedding tables as it'll mix really nice with the flowers.

If you have any ideas on how to make the day a bit more special or personal, or you want to tease me about scented candles (as many have) then email me at I'd love to hear about your wedding plans.

Till next post,

Wedding Present for the Other Half!

Now, as I've never been married before (and never will be again after all this planning) I've never before had to think about a wedding gift for your other half.
To be honest I've only ever seen this in movies and usually it's the guy giving the girl but I know you do have to do it.
I've googled loads of sites and the general consensus is that it doesn't have to be a really big, bold and expensive present but more a token gift. Something that means alot to both of you on the day you get married. I've had a few emails from brides to be suggesting things. One lady bought her fella a wine tasting and lunch in a vineyard tour as it was the way they got enagaged. Another lady who's fella was mad on music managed to get hold of a rare guitar - something he absolutely loved.
So I've managed to find the best company/website! It's a company called Ego Cufflinks. All of their cufflinks are hand crafted and they are really unique. Have a look at the website:
I've decided to have a pair made for Matt which are personal to us and will hopefully be a lasting memory of our day especially everytime he wears them after our wedding.
