Before the Big Day

Georgia calls herself a 'mild wedding obsessive' and we don't think there's anything wrong with that, especially when it means she writes such a wonderful wedding blog.

Before the Big Day is filled with all sorts of great information that you can make use of before you get hitched. Not sure what theme to use for your wedding? Keen to add a little personal flair by making some DIY pieces? Georgia will show you how!

We really love her paper feather streamers. She took the idea from some of her blogger friends and whipped up her own in no time - they'd make a beautiful addition to any wedding venue.

She'll bring you the latest in wedding fashion from across the Channel, including new wedding dress collections from French designers and the hottest venues in the country. Top it off with gorgeous photography from real destination weddings and you have the makings of a truly wonderful wedding blog.

We particularly love the vintage wedding in Provence. It doesn't get much more glamorous than turning up to your big day by driving up a red carpet in a blue Jag!
