After this endless winter, I think we could all do with a bit of summer sunshine so we have put together a little summer mood board. We love everything that summer has to offer. Not just the potentially great weather but also the food, colours and flowers.
Food comes in all forms during the summer months. From fresh crispy salads to barbequed meats and fish and even to fresh desserts, it’s such a delicious few months. Some of our favourites are featured in the mood board above. Just look at that gorgeous salmon!
The colours are also a favourite of ours this time of year. All the bright colours come out to play and look so fresh and vibrant in the abundance of natural light. Not to mention the garden coming into its own. This is the time of huge blooms, armfuls of wildflowers, birds flitting from tree to tree and summer houses being dusted and brought back out from hibernation.
Who couldn’t love summer?
February is a mixed bag for many of us. The days are still a bit dark and gloomy. The rain is still coming down in torrents. However, the promise of Spring is making its way into the air.
January weddings are so dramatic – from the colours and flavours, to the dress and the weather.
We love the rich, dark hues that are mixed with sparkling white at this time of year. It’s such a classic look and yet ever so glamorous.
We also love how beautiful, rich food comes out at this time of year. We’re thinking gourmet roast dinners, rich hot chocolate bars and decadent doughnut desserts.
January is also the perfect excuse for a beautiful, sparkling gown. Take inspiration from Frozen, Nanny McPhee and Cinderella for some truly stunning winter dresses.
Finally, even though January weddings have to cope with more moody weather, we love the atmosphere this provides. Steamy, iced up windows, dramatic clouds and torrential rain can give the big day all sorts of magic, especially when it comes to photos.
It’s officially 2018 (where has the time gone)! For us, January means so many lovely things; from getting our heads back in the game to setting some exciting goals for the coming months.
One of our favourite things about January is the light. I know, I know – the weather is still pretty dreary, it’s still quite cold and we’re forced to huddle inside next to burning log burners wearing big jumpers, but the light is actually lasting a little bit longer every day. Allowing us a few more minutes of daylight does wonders for the moral and makes everything seem like it’s heading in the right direction.
January is also the month of fresh starts. It’s the beginning of the year and many of us feel like now is the time to think about the achievements and differences we want in the months ahead. We are filled with the need to clean up our lives; whether literally clearing things out or simply taking a step back and reviewing where we are now and where we would like to be this time next year.
Speaking of reviewing things, now is also the time of goal setting and new years resolutions. I know most, if not all of us, are guilty of letting many of our resolutions fall by the wayside but I hope this year whether you have vowed to have a healthier lifestyle, gain more clients and bookings or to spend more time appreciating the little things, you achieve it.
Happy New Year!
