Everything New In Weddings Right Now
FOR A HONEYMOON:
Casa La Siesta
Created by the founders of London interiors brand Bert & May, Casa la Siesta in southern Spain has reopened after a major refurbishment, including an expansion of the kitchen garden that supplies the hotel’s restaurant with fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables. With a heated outdoor pool, open fires in the main salon in the evenings and bright sunny days guaranteed, it’s a great option for anyone looking to book a simple honeymoon. We recommend the redone Suite 5, which features the new Bert & May tile collection ‘Irregular’. Mostly adults only, just be aware the hotel does set aside specific weeks to host families every year.
FOR A WEDDING WEBSITE:
Setting up a wedding website can help with numerous things – from managing RSVPs to co-ordinating travel arrangements and sharing photos with loved ones after the big day. If that's something that appeals, Square Space is worth checking out. It has numerous website templates to choose from and makes building the site easy – no complex coding skills required. You'll also be able to customise it exactly as you want. Not convinced? You can start off with a free trial to make sure it meets your needs.
FOR PERSONALISED JEWELLERY:
Sophie Bille Brahe
Danish jewellery designer Sophie Bille Brahe’s exclusive capsule collection for her own website and Browns explores the concept of family heirlooms. Inspired by the poetry collection Alphabet by Inger Christensen, she’s reimagined traditional rings into something modern. Customers can choose a piece with the initial of their choice – which is written in Sophie’s own handwriting. There are also ear studs and necklaces hand-crafted in Italy from 18k yellow gold and adorned with Top Wesselton VVS diamonds.
FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE VENUE:
Water’s Edge at Ewen
Emma and Steve Hewer are the husband-and-wife team behind one of the Cotswolds’ hottest new boutique wedding venues. Tucked away in the sleepy village of Ewen in the grounds of their family home, Water’s Edge is a purpose-built, two-storey contemporary barn with an impressive dining room that comes with a show-stopping open fireplace, a large bar and social area, as well as an open theatre-style kitchen. Outside, the courtyard garden space is the perfect place to keep the party going well into the evening. Capacity is 110 seated, or up to 180 standing, and prices start from £5,900 for two-night exclusive use, with food menus from £49pp. There’s also a bridal suite and two further bedrooms that sleep up to five additional guests on site.
FOR A SKINCARE PLAN:
The Face Planner
All brides should know about The Face Planner. A new skincare plan that’s designed to boost, brighten and balance your complexion in time for the big day, its six products combine dermatologist-approved formulations with glow-giving ingredients to give you your best-looking skin in just three months. Included in all six of its formulas, at varying levels, are oils from the brand’s family estate in Tuscany – each olive, almond and sunflower seed is hand-harvested and then cold pressed to extract the fresh, luxurious oils. The Ultimate Plan costs £385 for all six products, while the Essentials Edit costs £125.
FOR A DESIGNER DRESS:
If you’re in the market for a knockout wedding dress, Emilia Wickstead’s latest collection has to be on your radar. Full of modern silhouettes, clean lines and exquisite details, everything is made using the highest quality fabrics and expert cuts at the New Zealand-born designer’s bridal salon. While there’s a definite DNA running throughout the collection, there really is something to suit every taste. The Mirella is straight cut and simple, while the Eugenia is ornate and embellished. Brides looking to make a statement on their big day should try the Luna, with its stunning oversized bow train.
FOR ALL THE EXTRAS:
Eco-conscious fashion brand Nobody’s Child has released a Wedding Edit full of slinky bridesmaid dresses and bridal nightwear – all made from responsible materials. Brides can choose from silky separates in traditional ivory, on-trend shades like lilac and pale blue, and even ditsy florals or rich olive. Perfect if you’re looking for affordable dresses for your bridal party, or easy-to-throw-on pieces to get ready in.
FOR A SPECIAL FRAGRANCE:
Grace de Monaco
Wedding fragrances don’t get more special than this. The Grace de Monaco brand is inspired by the enduring style of Grace Kelly and the work of the Princess Grace Foundation, which supports up-and-coming artists in the worlds of dance, theatre and film. With only two scents in the range so far, you can rest assured that quality is the top priority here. Promenade Sur Le Rocher is a bold and elegant white floral, with notes of bergamot, rose centifolia, a touch of exotic ylang-ylang and a base made up of amber, woods, musk and vanilla. Danse Étoilée is all about shimmering light and seduction, with notes of sparkling citrus, rhubarb and cassis, as well as a bright bouquet of lily of the valley, geranium, freesia and rose.
