Looking for some wedding inspiration?
I have absolutely no doubt that all of you have spent a lot of time scrolling through wedding blogs and Google search results, trying to find the perfect piece of wedding inspiration to get you started.
To help you along, I’ve rounded up my favourite UK and worldwide wedding blogs. Each of these covers every imaginable style of wedding, from DIY to weddings abroad, and covers those values that are important to me and to you: diversity, sustainability, inclusivity, and, of course, gorgeous design!
Take a good look, and, if you think I’ve missed one, leave your suggestions in the comments!
If you’re ready to start planning your wedding hairstyle, you can book a call into my diary at a time to suit you. Or, for more inspiration on how to get your wedding planning started, check out my previous post on the First Dos and Don’ts After Getting Engaged.
1. Rock My Wedding
Rock My Wedding was set up by Charlotte O’Shea, and has quickly become one of the web’s favourite spots for wedding inspo. The best feature of RMW is its real wedding features, which tell real stories of real brides and how they brought their dreams to life.
2. Green Wedding Shoes
Green Wedding Shoes is an invaluable resource for couples, offering unique real wedding examples to really get you thinking, as well as wedding shopping guides, and fashion, beauty, and wellness tips. They really have everything you could possibly need to bring your perfect wedding day into existence, while also looking after yourself in the process!
3. Love That Wedding
Love That Wedding is a local wedding resource run by Catherine Dunning, which was borne out of a love for the local area and the talent available for Wiltshire, Hampshire, and Dorset brides-to-be. Not only is LMW a brilliant directory for local wedding suppliers, but it also hosts some excellent local wedding shows.
4. The Knot
The Knot brings together everything you might need to plan a wedding: an app, a registry, inspirational blog posts, and a directory of suppliers. It is known for its diversity and ability to appeal to couples with every type of vision.
5. Love My Dress
Love My Dress was originally set up to help brides-to-be find the perfect wedding dress. Since then, it has grown into a fabulous base of inspiration and information for wedding-planning brides, with fashion tips, real wedding stories, and guest editorials.
Bridebook is aimed at engaged couples who are intending to organise everything themselves. It offers you extensive lists of recommended suppliers, and a wedding planning app to help you keep on top of things.
Hitched are the uncontested favourites as far as wedding blogs and directories go; but, I haven’t put them at the top of my list because I think there are plenty of other blogs out there that are just as valuable. Take a look at all their inspiration, recommended suppliers, and real wedding stories, and give their mood board tool a go!
8. Bride & Tonic
Bride & Tonic was set up by Elle and Nikki as an ethical answer to wedding planning questions. It’s perfect for couples looking to keep things sustainable, organic, and natural, with plenty of suggestions, real wedding examples, and valuable advice.
9. The English Wedding Blog
The English Wedding Blog began in the Lake District with Claire Guild. The real weddings that it features are organised by region, so you can really get to grips with what’s available in your area and/or further afield without any fake sales pitches. The diversity of weddings on this blog means that there is something for everyone.
10. Want That Wedding
Want That Wedding was set up after Sonia’s own experience planning a themed wedding. You can search the site’s countless posts about weddings across the globe by theme and style, but also by colour!

3 reasons you should… Most brides-to-be will choose to get their own hair and their bridal party’s hair styled on the wedding morning. It’s a fun experience for everyone and can be a really memorable and exciting part of your day. If you’re on the fence about what to do, consider these three key reasons…
Most brides-to-be choose their bridal hairstylist based on word-of-mouth recommendations. They know someone who was over-the-moon with their bridal style, and they seek the same feeling. This is how most of my brides first approach me, which is the biggest compliment in the world! There are instances, however, where this kind of personal review from…
One thing I’ve noticed this year is that many more of you are choosing to either get married or celebrate in a marquee, a tipi, a yurt, or a bell tent (etc). Maybe this is in part due to the restrictions that we’ve all had to navigate our way through, as outside weddings were a…
