    The Wedding Stylist

    Before setting up Secret Wedding Blog I didn’t know much about weddings and the whole wedding planning process. It was the standard elements that first came to mind when mentioning weddings. The dress, the bridesmaids, photography and so on. However after exploring the wedding industry and the real weddings featured on the blog, you will notice that weddings are so much more than this.

    A Colombian Spanish Fusion Wedding in Croatia

    Today’s bride and groom wanted an intimate and relaxed wedding, under the blue sky, surrounded by trees, sea and closest family and friends. As they had many guests travelling from abroad (from 19 different countries!) they decided to make it into a little holiday getaway and sail everyone onto an island. Vis island is one of those well-kept Adriatic secrets. It has been a military base for many years, closed for tourists, and as a result of this seclusion, it resisted over-development and mass tourism, and remained a simple and authentic fishing and winemaking paradise. This peaceful oasis of raw, unspoilt natural beauties and rich history, 2 ½ hours boat ride from Split, and worlds away from the tourist hustle and bustle, was perfect for their little circus of love!

    Disapproval expressed in religious terms can be particularly distressing: ‘You will go to hell if you marry without him converting.’ If this is the kind of thing that is said to you, it may help you to make contact with religious leaders and thinkers who do not believe it’s a proper expression of the faith to use ‘the threat of hell-fire’ in this way, as a form of pressure.

    Valentine’s Day Ideas

    When buying gifts for that special someone, there can be the added pressure of making sure you get the ‘perfect gift’. This feeling came when trying to find Mark something for his 29th birthday. I was discussing gifts with my twin sister Rita and she said – “He has everything so an experience would be a good idea”. She was right. Mark has the important things he wants already, he’s got to a point where he doesn’t want gifts for the sake of it. We are saving up for our future after all… Rita’s words about the experience did stay in my mind when I bought him an experience for his birthday.
