A Hanson & Hopewell Spotlight: Lizzie - Bride-to-be

As the eternal single girls, living together in our heavenly ‘boy free’ bachelorette pad, my dear friend Lizzie and I didn’t think the day we chat wedding plans would ever come! We were far from crying over Bridget Jones and planning our future cattery business, it’s fair to say, we were really enjoying single life. Little did we know though that three years later, I would be married, and Lizzie would soon be walking down the aisle too – and all thanks to tinder! On this week’s #BridesmaidBible entry we chat to the gorgeous Bride-to-be Lizzie for a real account of all things wedding planning - a Hanson & Hopewell spotlight on the Bride-to-be.

The 5 must have cocktails for your 2017 wedding

You might have already realised that here at H&H, we’re slightly cocktail obsessed. And for us a wedding is not a wedding without a signature cocktail on offer. Once you’ve planned and organised the reception, the dress and the table plan – it’s time to work the detail, so don’t let the bar become an afterthought! At Hopewell’s summer French destination wedding, we both had lychee martinis and rum jungles to rehydrate the team in style, whilst Hanson entertained with mulled wine and lumumbas at her Christmas festivities (whilst also sharing her passion for gin with gin bottles as table settings).  We couldn’t let the summer pass without sharing our favourite must have cocktail recipes for your 2017 wedding. We’ve certainly enjoyed the research. It’s a hard job eh!

Wedding anniversary: Throwback to 2014

It’s been three years since I tied the knot and the time has completely flown by in a glorious summer haze. When a wedding anniversary comes around it allows us to pause, reflect and relive those wonderful wedding memories, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share some information about our wedding day – to help those newly engaged brides wondering how to start wedding planning, to provide some inspiration to brides on the lead up to their wedding or perhaps quite simply to allow me to reminisce about what a fantastic weekend we had with all our favourite friends and family! Let’s throwback to June 21st 2014.

Honeymoon Inspiration: Cambodia Part 2

Our private transfer from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh took around four hours and cost just $40. Rather coincidentally we continued the rose theme and stayed at the La Rose Boutique Hotel & Spa located on the Norodom Blvd, it was good value and well-placed for our 48-hour visit.
