British Summer Time officially starts this weekend and with that comes a whole host of new season styles, so if you have a wedding to attend this spring/summer there’s no better time to pick up that perfect wedding guest dress.
From fancy floor length frocks for sophisticated black tie events to floaty floral numbers if you’re attending a destination wedding, the best of the High Street wedding guest dresses are right here….

Embellished Crystal Petal Maxi Dress £185 – Needle & Thread
The clocks go forward this weekend here in the UK, which marks the official start of British Summer Time – hurrah, bring on the sunshine!
This led me to thinking that if you’re getting married on a day when the clocks change, or maybe New Year’s Eve, or possibly you just love vintage clocks, then a subtle time theme or a display of charming clock faces could make a creative and decorative wedding feature.
So this week’s Friday Five features five ways to incorporate clocks into your big day. From ceremony backdrops to wedding table centrepieces, show your guests that it is wedding o’clock with these cute clock themed wedding ideas!
Wedding ceremony backdrop
Whether you’re searching for inspiration for your destination wedding locale, on the hunt for honeymoon inspiration or hoping to discover somewhere new for your next holiday, the latest feature on the blog called ‘Travel Diaries’ is the destination for you.
Every month your favourite wedding photographers from around the world will be sharing their globetrotting adventures, along with the amazing places that they uncovered along the way and some helpful hints and tips for when you follow in their footsteps.
The first stop on the Travel Diaries tour was The Unspoilt Algarve in Portugal and today the journey continues across Europe to the stunning island of Santorini in Greece.
Kate and Tom (also known as photography duo Fotky pre Radost) are a blissfully married couple with a great passion for beautiful photographs, a love of travel and a longing to visit wonderful destinations the world over. One of those destinations was Santorini, which they chose for their first holiday together and later also for their honeymoon and today they’re sharing their top travel tips for getting the most out of a visit to this gorgeous Greek island…
Sofia & Fotis ♥ Athens, Greece
Photographer: Elias Kordelakos
If you weren’t feeling that you would love to jet off on holiday somewhere that the sun is shining brightly then you certainly will once you see today’s glorious summer wedding in Greece.
This is what destination wedding days are all about! Clear blue skies overhead, a delightfully decorated garden venue and a relaxed outdoor ceremony where you and your guests can enjoy the warmth of the summer sun.
Add a beautiful boho-bride with a bright wild daisy bouquet, two cuter-than-cute flower girls (aren’t their dainty gypsophila flower crowns pretty?) and a dapper groom dressed in a sleek navy suit and you have a gorgeous garden wedding in Greece that your nearest and dearest will adore attending…
Kelsey & Aaron ♥ California, USA
Photographer: onelove photography
Imagine the most picture-perfect Californian vineyard setting, bathed in a sunlit haze and elegantly decorated with more wedding pretty than you could ever dream of and you’ll have almost visualised today’s wonderfully rustic, outdoor wedding.
Kelsey is one seriously crafty bride having DIY’d all of the darling design details herself (not forgetting a little help from family and friends!). Not only did her focus on features achieve an elegant yet super-personal theme for her and Aaron’s day, it flawlessly complimented the laid-back rural luxury of the HammerSky Vineyard setting.
The first class onelove photography team were on hand to capture the essence of this delightful two day destination wedding…
