Unbridled elegance for your mane event – stable advice for the perfect equestrian wedding

Unbridled elegance for your mane event – stable advice for the perfect equestrian wedding

A horse theme at a wedding can be the perfect way to add a touch of sophistication and personality to the big day. It’s extremely versatile – opt for a race-day dress code, bring a fairy tale to life, honour the tradition of the Baraat, or take your lead from the royal family with a horse drawn carriage! Horse venues, such as racecourses, ranches and barns, have far more personality than hotels and can often cater to larger wedding parties than standard venues. Planning an equestrian wedding might have its hurdles, but it’s a sure-fire way to make your wedding stand out. Here are the top tips from Newbury Racecourse to ensure a perfect horse-themed event!

‘Furrytail’ Weddings Fit for a Corgi

‘Furrytail’ Weddings Fit for a Corgi

DOGS and royal weddings are set to become one of this year’s big themes – and Princess Eugenie’s forthcoming nuptials could be no exception.

Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tie the knot at Windsor Castle on October 12th – and there’s speculation as to what part the Princess’s devoted dog – also called Jack - will play in their big day.

Meghan Markle’s rescue dog Guy was said to be the hit of the Royal wedding reception when she married Prince Harry in May - so could it be second time around for a ‘furrytail’ ending?

You don’t have to be a Princess to want your precious pet to be involved in such a special day.

Thanks to dog sitting specialists Barking Mad, you no longer have to ‘paws’ for thought when it comes to your dog attending your wedding as a VIP.

Reaching a one year milestone is always a very momentous and moving moment, whether personal or professional, and none more so than the first wedding anniversary! Almost all cultures associate a symbol with this landmark - like soft cotton, clocks, mother of pearl, carnations, and paper – but of course the latter is the most exciting one for us here at Ananya! We love the idea of the first year being akin to a blank sheet, with so many chapters yet to be written. We’ve gathered here for you some paper-inspired ideas for gifts to celebrate your first year together, and we hope you enjoy them!

Historical weddings

For couples that find fascination in history and like to focus on the ‘something old’ part of the wedding tradition, a theme rooted in history can add a special element to their day. A historical theme can be the starting point for everything from the food and clothes, to the flowers and decoration of the room, transporting the whole wedding party back in time.

It’s been a momentous year for Britain’s young royals, with not one but two weddings taking place.

Add the F factor to your wedding!

Add the F factor to your wedding!

Forget the favours, the theme, the table decoration, according to one of the UK’s event experts, more couples need to think about the fun factor for their wedding day.

Sunny Sandwell, director of fun at Sunshine Events said: “Months, sometimes years of planning go into a couple’s big day, but what often gets over looked is the entertainment, often couple’s just opt for the traditional wedding band, however there’s so much you can do on your wedding day to really make it a day to remember.”

Sunshine Events work on weddings up and down the country, providing everything from photo booths to mobile casinos to even inflatable assault courses and virtual reality zones, to really add a wow factor to the traditional wedding day.
