Our gorgeous and glowing AUGUST issue is on sale now, photographed by Tasha of Ikonworks in the beautiful house of Penton Park, we think you’ll agree the sultry pastel and jewel colour combo of our cover compliment perfectly as we begin to move into a more autumnal phase of summer.  Pairing pastels with deeper royal shades which you can incorporate into your wedding day starting with an opulent Emerald Green themed spread in this issue! – Complete with bridesmaids dresses, jewelled green beads and a rich oasis of gemstone green details, centuries prior and through to today, this colour still occupies a special position in many cultures and religions. The emerald represents the green of life and of love as the colour of the greek goddess, Venus!

A colour combo favourite for this week for our Pinterest and Instagram followers was our yellow and slate board! Classic grey with a refreshing yet tropical tinted ochre yellow for details, we think is a winner! Which also reminds us of the gorgeous Jenny Packham yellow and grey dress that Kim Murray wore at Wimbledon! (Also on our instagram!)
A similar take on the buttercup shade selected as one of the 2016s top 10 Pantone colours, this colour is definitely one to consider for the finer details of your day!

Particularly in celebration of a wedding with previous trends for the year including sweet treats favours and dessert tables to satisfy guests and adhere to themes, cakes and biscuits are a sure favourite for most! And better still, now you don’t have to choose between them thanks to the twolittlecatsbakery! This idea proved a particular favourite and we can see why! Your classic biscuit favourite incorporated into the most delicious looking cupcakes! Uhh Hello?!!
