Rock My Wedding Real Brides for 2014… Pick Mine!

Hello dear readers, I hope you are having a great weekend?

I’m pretty excited right now as last week I spotted that tone of my lovely 2014 couples Christine & Ryan are finalists in the RMW real Brides competition. *squeals*

I’m only helping them with my “on the day” services and I know they would really love to win this. Such a cute couple, totally deserving. So, if you want to support them (you do don’t you?) then please do scroll down on their page and enter the word “vote” in the comments. That’s it!

Thanks so much.



Win a Framed Print and 15% off Wedding Stationery with White Hanami

So for ages I’ve been wanting to meet up with the brains behind White Hanami, a new design studio in the Cotswolds producing personalised art prints, luxury wedding stationery and greeting cards. They have been seen in Vogue and are featured on Not on The High Street, the home of literally everything my little heart could possibly desire.
Created by the very lovely Siobhan Wolton, White Hanami’s contemporary style features beautifully simple and understated designs. Siobhan uses British materials and each product is professionally printed in England by hand-picked specialists, selected for their quality and use of premium materials. I met up with Siobhan and she showed me her samples, even her packaging feels expensive. It’s ALL beautiful.

She also was incredibly generous and created a bespoke print just for me and the hubby, which I’m ashamed to say I’ve yet to put up in our new house as the walls are still bare plaster… seriously, how many shades of F&B grey can I paint samples of before making a decision? Gah. I promise to post a photo of it up in its glory as soon as the walls are done!

I am also very excited to announce that I am running a competition to WIN a framed print and 15% off when you order your wedding stationery with White Hanami. Simply email White Hanami at and quote “Jessie Thomson” to enter, but remember that you only have until the end of April to snap this one up ladies & gents!

Just a quick round up again of why White Hanami are an awesome stationery company:

  • Everything is professionally printed by specialists
  • Wedding stationery is printed on lovely heavyweight textured card. 320gsm, 100% cotton
  • All invitations are presented in a luxury White Hanami keepsake box
  • Designs can be produced in any colour, you can simply email a swatch of your colour choice(s). No extra cost.
  • Siobhan will work closely with you to choose the right fonts etc.
  • A free, no obligation, consultation is available.
