Welcome to the UK's most stylish wedding blog

I am so excited to share my passion for the world of bridal with you, my fashionable bride-to-be’s. I am dedicated to sharing with you the latest wedding fashion trends, the most beautiful real weddings, inspirational receptions, gorgeous hair and beauty ideas, dream honeymoons and much, much more.

To give you a bit of background on myself, I got my first taste of weddings at the tender age of 23 when I was lucky enough to attend the A-list celebrity wedding of Victoria and David Beckham. I didn’t realise it at the time but the Beckham wedding ignited my passion for the wedding industry.

After editing Cosmopolitan Bride magazine, and freelancing for national bridal and non-bridal magazines, I decided to launch Style & the Bride.

I know that you are about to embark on one of the most exciting times of your life. My aim is to help you achieve the most incredible wedding day, your style, your way.

At Home With Ali And Dom Beaven Of Wedding Gift List Prezola

Years ago, I used to work on OK! magazine and spent most of my time conducting ‘At Home’ interviews with leading celebrities. I kind of miss this. After all, who wouldn’t want to snoop around the homes of the rich and famous? Although I don’t get to do this now on Style & the Bride, I  was delighted recently to be invited along to interview Ali and Dom Beaven of wedding gift list Prezola, at their beautiful home.

For those of you who have not yet thought about your wedding gift list, let me briefly explain about Prezola. The company was founded in 2010 and is the UK’s leading independent wedding gift list company for style savvy couples. They offer two services, one for gifts, and one for money and gifts. If you want to add cash to your gift list, you will need the ‘Premier Plus Account‘. Whether you are looking to fund your honeymoon, or are keen on having contributions to bigger projects like renovating a new home, this service offers money in your bank easily and discreetly. You can also ask for donations to your favourite charity. The Premier Plus Account is a one off fee of £39, and the main service is free.

They have over 30,000 products to choose from with trusted high street brands such as The White Company, LSA, Le Creuset, and Sophie Conran for Portmeirion.

Now back to my ‘At Home’ with Ali and Dom Beaven. As I approached their country manor house, which is around twenty minutes from Bath, I knew that I would be in for treat when it came to the interior and furnishings. Before I had a chance to enter their house, their utterly gorgeous dog Daisy came bounding over. I was not really a ‘doggy person,’ until I met Daisy! I literally wanted to take her home with me and am now convinced that my house is in need of a puppy!

When Daisy finally allowed me to go into Ali and Dom’s home, I was immediately taken by the elegance yet ‘relaxed’ feel of the interior. However, considering Ali is a qualified interior designer, it is no wonder every room flowed so well. She has a particular passion for soft furnishings, period property and vintage accessories, which was clear to see from the way she has decorated her own home.

After I sat down with Ali and Dom to interview them, they suggested we break for a spot of lunch in their traditional country style kitchen. Over a mezze of antipasti, beautiful salads, cheeses, all sourced locally, I felt I got to know the powerhouse duo behind the wedding gift list company Prezola.

It is clear that both Ali and Dom are committed to providing the best choice and customer service to their couples. They know exactly what the 21st century couple is after when it comes to putting together a gift list. They themselves recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary with a very special Prezola list.

Have a look at the gorgeous images below from my ‘At Home’ photo shoot with Ali and Dom.
