Featured Post: Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 – Ultra Violet

Morning you lovely lot

I love December for many reasons; gorgeous jumpers, wooly scarves, festiveness all round.  But another reason, is that Pantone release their Colour of the Year, allowing us lot in the wedding industry to get our creative juices flowing!

So after last years ‘Greenery‘, which I was massively unimpressed by until I looked further into it then I fell completely in love with it! So, I was so excited to really enjoy this new, exciting colour.  

Then the ammouncement came.

So excited!

Ultra Violet,

What!?!?! I was so disappointed! I imagine lots of cadbury coloured weddings over the next 12 months. 

BUT!!!!! I should have had more faith, because as soon as I started looking, I completely fell in love with it. Its gorgeous and matches with so many shades! But I won’t be talking about what it matches with today, just letting these images speak for themselves in order to inspire you as well.

Aurora Wedding Films: Georgia and Nick

Happy Tuesday you lovely lot.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.Aurora logo

If you are debating whether to invest in having your wedding filmed. I’d like you to watch this before making your mind up. Wedding films have changed so much over the years. They are now becoming more and more like timeless epic story telling pieces and just as important as the photography. Investing in a good film maker as well as a photographer creates a beautiful collection of memories. Theres no doubt about it.

Today we are featuring the beautiful wedding film of Georgia and Nick. They tied the knot at Llandaff Cathedral followed by a stunning reception at the National Museum Cardiff. 

Filmed by the lovely and very talented Aurora Wedding films. 

Georgia and Nick – The Preview from Aurora Wedding Films on Vimeo.

Remember, your wedding day is probably the only day in your life you will have all your favourite people in one place sharing in your happiness. I think its worth investing in having that documented in the best way possible.

As the years then begin to pass, only then will you truly understand the value of how special that investment was.
