Wedding websites


Have you thought about a wedding website? It’s a great idea.

‘’What’s a wedding website?’’ I hear you ask.

A wedding website is a place where your guests can find all the information that they might need about your wedding. This website might even include management of RSVPs – so your guests can reply online to their invitation.


You can create your own wedding website, but such websites are also available commercially.

So what sort of information should a wedding website contain?

As well as basic information about date, location and ceremony time, a wedding website can contain useful information such as timings for the day. For example, parents of children , or people on certain medications, might find it useful to know when food is going to be served, just in case they might need to bring snacks with them or adjust their medication. Including the wedding breakfast menu on the wedding website also works really well.

Our experience is that guests find information about timings for the day really helpful.


Many couples these days are choosing to have ‘unplugged’ ceremonies. This is where they request guests to refrain from taking pictures and videos during the ceremony. If this sounds like something you might like to do, the perhaps your wedding website might be where you place this information.

On the other hand, you might be of the view that you’d like your guests to take lots of photos and video throughout the ceremony and the whole wedding day – some couples even devise a wedding hashtag so that guests’ images can be easily found when uploaded to social media. Without doubt, a wedding hashtag needs to be shared on a wedding website. As, indeed, do the details about wifi at the venue.

If you’re having a pay bar at your wedding, then including this info on your wedding website will remind your guests to bring a means of payment with them.


Confetti is another issue that you might like to address on your wedding website. Some venues don’t allow it at all, others insist that only biodegradable confetti is used.



If your wedding is in a rustic setting, perhaps in a marquee, a barn or even out in the open in woodland, then your guests may well be very grateful to know in advance so that they can plan suitable outfits with flat shoes rather than high heels or open-toed sandals.


Another couple of very practical items to include on your wedding website are details of local taxi companies along with a list of local places to stay. Booking taxis in advance will help guests avoid situations where they’re stuck in an unfamiliar and possibly remote spot with no transport.


Of course, we’ve all been to weddings where there is limited parking. If your venue has ample parking, your guests will find this information reassuring. If it doesn’t, then they will undoubtedly find details of local car parks really helpful.

There are certain delicate issues that could be diplomatically addressed on your wedding website too – perhaps you’ve decided that you’d prefer your wedding to be child free.

Perhaps your venue capacity or your budget is such that invitational ‘plus ones’ are not possible. A nicely worded sentence or two on your wedding website might well save you from an awkward conversation.

And of course, there is always your love story.

It’s possible that not all of your guests know you as a couple.

Life these days is busy, and families spread across the world.

Pictures and stories of how you met and fell in love are a charming way to introduce your partner to that favourite aunt that you’ve struggled to find the time to visit. If you have an engagement photo shoot you might like to share some of these images to your wedding website.

In short, your wedding website can be whatever you want it to be, from a source of basic information to a full on wedding colour themed information and photographic extravaganza where you include information about the bridal party and grooms men (and maybe even pictures of your guests too) – a digital celebration of you and your love.

Wedding themes

Those of us in the wedding industry often speak glibly about wedding themes.


Indeed, I sometimes hear myself speaking about various styled photo shoot themes and wonder if what I’m saying doesn’t sound a bit bonkers to anyone hearing it for the first time.

But a theme for a wedding doesn’t mean the wedding looks like a pantomime – unless that’s what you want, of course :-).

These images are from a photo shoot here at The Old Milking Parlour at Cavokay House that was organised and styled by Leanna of The Silk Studio UK, in Frome.

Leanna came to us with an idea to create a bridal photo shoot based on the Disney film ‘Frozen’.


But as you can see from these gorgeous images by Natalie Stevenson Photography, this is a very grown up and elegant interpretation, with not a cartoon in sight.

Notice though, how the delicate blue colour theme runs throughout the details of the day to give a feeling of cohesion and calm.

The flowers, the biscuits, the garter, the table details and the stationery all feature touches of pale blue and the overall result is feminine and stylish.

Adding to the soft feminine feel, that fabulous feathered dress and the photographic editing style.

We were thrilled when The English Wedding Blog featured the photo shoot.

Of course, you absolutely don’t have to have a theme for your wedding at all if you don’t want to.

It’s your day and we’re huge advocates of you having what you want.


But if you’re undecided about colours or how you see your day looking, then a theme can be a useful jumping off point.

We’d suggest maybe a favourite film or book, or even a hobby or even a favourite holiday destination…


Once you start to think about it, the possibilities are endless....

Spring wedding ideas rustic barn bridal bouquet somerset

'Bring on the spring'

~ In 2023 we were approached by the excellent 'Your Bristol and Somerset Wedding' magazine to contribute to their April/May 2023 edition.


The brief was to advise 'How can I incorporate the beauty of spring into my wedding?'

This piece was published on page 62 of that issue.
