Lewis & Emma’s Relaxed Music Themed Wedding Day

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Today I have the wonderful privilege of posting a real life wedding blog for Ivy Ellen’s managing director Lewis and his music themed wedding day. Lewis and Emma tied the knot on the 27th May at the stunning location of Pangdean Barn in West Sussex. Of course many of the Ivy Ellen and Blue Eyed Sun team members attended the reception and loved celebrating with the newlyweds! Lewis and Emma chose to have a picturesque outdoor ceremony and their beautiful little boy, Jesse, stole everyones hearts as ring bearer. I asked the new Mrs Early a few questions about their big day and of course have shared some of their truly stunning photographs with you too…

Who proposed and how did they propose? How did you meet?

We’d actually known each other on and off through the years, but never very well. It wasn’t until I joined Lewis’ band in 2011 that we became really good friends. The timing wasn’t right back then though, and we eventually got our act together 4 years ago and things went pretty quickly from there! Lewis proposed in early 2015 – the first weekend we’d moved into our new home. It was a proper ‘Friends’ moment, I came home to a house filled with candles everywhere and a very romantic dinner, and it went from there. Perfect.

…We had just started planning the wedding when we discovered I was pregnant though, so plans got delayed a while! Read the rest of this entry »

RLW: Our Sussex Bride’s Bonfire Night Wedding Day!

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

As many of you know, our team member Stephanie tied the knot with Liam in a beautiful bonfire night wedding. Childhood sweethearts and together for seven years, they said their vows at the stunning Arundel Town Hall in West Sussex. All of of us here at Ivy Ellen then joined them along with family and friends for celebrations at The Charmandean, Worthing. Today we have the happy couple answering lots of questions and giving some top advice for all your lovely brides and grooms.


Who proposed and how did they propose? How did you meet?

We met seven years ago whilst at high school, through a mutual friend. We were complete opposites but fell in love instantly. Liam proposed to me five years later. We went for a late night walk down the seafront after dinner and he popped the question at the end of the pier in our hometown. It was a beautiful starry night and could not have been more perfect (even if I did laugh with nervousness and excitement before actually answering him). Our anniversary date is a little unsure but we usually celebrate on the 5th as this was the closest date we can remember – so it seemed only fitting g to have a bonfire night wedding really!

Real Life Weddings: Lisa and Richards’ Pretty in Pink Wedding

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Lisa and Richard married on a beautiful day in July 2014, their perfectly pink wedding was held at Bailiffscourt Hotel and Spa in West Sussex. Lisa recalls “Richard and I had been together 18 months when we got married.  We met online, just before I was about to cancel my subscription after having met my fair share of weirdo’s!!  His email started with “I don’t really get the whole winking thing so I thought I would just write you a mail…..”  It made me laugh because I didn’t get winking at someone online either. I wouldn’t do it in person so why online?! We met for our first date 7 days after our first contact, our eyes met across a busy Brighton car park and it literally was love at first sight for us both. We had both been through bad relationships and we feel as if we have been given a chance at happiness. We plan to make the most of the rest of our lives together to make up for the lost time.”

Lisa shares her thoughts on the big day, the proposal and gives us her top tips!
