Your wedding day is likely something you’ve dreamt about since you were little. That said, you probably didn’t consider the amount of hard work and planning that goes into wedding planning. With this hard work, often comes a stressful few months and even a stressful morning on the day-of. When it comes to the details, it’s important to plan everything ahead of time, whether it’s something as important as your ceremony setup or as simple as setting your alarm for the morning-of. Check out our tips to help you relax and know what to do the morning of your wedding.
The week is at it’s end and for most that’s a great thing, however here at Matthew Oliver we love all things wedding, so we’ve decided to spend our Saturday visiting a stunning venue that we get the pleasure of working with this year, that venue being Aynhoe Park. Can’t wait! Though first I get the honour of introducing Cassie Steele, a freelancer who couldn’t wait to share her tips on ‘Planning the best outdoor wedding’; as lovers of planning outdoor weddings we jumped right on board with her top tips and couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Check them out below;
How are we all? …Cold? Me too… but ‘hey’ it’s winter, what can you do?! I know! Ignore the weather and talk about weddings! Something we don’t usually have much time to write about here at Matthew Oliver Weddings, but I’m alone in the office (singing to musicals) and thought I would write a quick blog (check out the multi-tasking!). I’ve seen a few people writing about wedding trends for 2018 and so I thought I would (as Matthew calls it) ‘put in my 5 eggs…’ :/
How the summer season is flying by! For the Matthew Oliver team it has been a literal case of ‘here, there, everywhere!’ …and we have loved every minute of it! As always if you want to catch up on what we’ve been up to, take a look at my or the Matthew Oliver Weddings Instagram. Ooh we love a good Insta story!
Coming to you all the way from sunny France, sat typing in the beatuiful Château de Grand Lucé, I wanted to share with you a great guest post from the wonderful Elena Tahora, a passionate fashion blogger and an avid traveller, writing all about some of the more unusual wedding traditions from around the world! Also a writer for the excellent American Tungsten have a look at what Elena has to say…
How is everyone’s bank holiday Monday going? A chilled out end to a pretty epic weekend I hope! Me? I’m sat in our cosy little office in Bradford on Avon, watching the weather through the window trying to decide what season it is, and doing one of my favourite things, writing! What with all the planning of amazing weddings and whatnot, I don’t get to sit down and write as much as I would like. So I thought ‘hey’, with the sun shining through the falling rain, I would take my bank holiday Monday and write to you all about a little photoshoot Matthew, Winston and I did a couple of months back, with the wonderful Julie Michaelsen.
These past 2 weeks have really flown right by and now here we are almost halfway into the month of April! I have of course been learning how to do lots of things and have now worked on two proposals for new clients. To create these design boards I first had to go over each brief to grasp what style of wedding and details they are looking for.
We love planning destination weddings and we know there is a lot that goes into making it unique for you and your partner. Although you are planning an international wedding and there are a lot of similarities to planning a wedding in your home country, there are also some significant differences that you need to bear in mind. Here at Matthew Oliver we have therefore put together an infographic to remind you of all the questions you should be asking, to make sure you really get the wedding you always wanted!
We are half way through January, the holiday festivities are a distant memory, we have ‘new home’ January sale shopped like our lives depended on it and I am soo over this cold dreary weather (we didn’t even get snow!). The only thing left to do is start dreaming of sun streaming, dew laden, beautiful spring days to get us through the coming weeks. To help us along we have our second guest post of the year (aren’t we lucky!) by the wonderful Isabella Foreman from Smart Photo Editors who has written about 5 different ways to plan you wedding for Spring! Have a gander here…
Yes it is Friday again and with it we are crawling ever closer to Christmas! We are in full festive swing, with the Matthew Oliver studio sparkling with Christmas lights and Winston lounging around the office in his Christmas jumper (pictures to follow!).

Have a read through the tips and ideas of this insightful blogger, it’s worth it! Article after the jump:
