The World has a favourite colour!

Posted on

We have seen recently a huge surge in requests for our ranges of pinks and oranges across our spectrum focusing in on our soft Pale Pink, our striking Peach and vibrant Bright Pink. It got us thinking (and wasting time on Wikipedia) what is the Worlds’ favorite colour? Is there one or is it purely trend based? After wasting A LOT of time online we found this chart from YouGov.uk which shows a survey conducted across 10 countries across four continents and it’s pretty incredible that the World definitely has a favorite colour- Blue! This was especially apparent in the...

Happy Birthday!

Posted on

So in the last 3 months we have celebrated 3 first Birthday’s, which on reflection is slightly crazy but also something we are immensely proud of.    First in February we celebrated a year of our Matchimony website, which is a big milestone for us, as it is when the brand became available to the World.   Then in March and April we have celebrated the first Birthday’s of our babies, who are growing up so quickly and are our reason for everything! We can’t believe how quickly the year has gone and so we thought we should take a breath and...

It's all about the movement!

Selecting your bridesmaids dresses is not easy, you may have many maids with many different body types, or maids who suit different colours or cuts. Well for us this was of paramount importance when designing and selecting our dresses. When we worked through our designs we spent a long time looking at the most flattering styles and fabrics to suit every body shape and something that kept coming up was how important is was for our bridesmaids to feel happy and comfortable in what they were wearing. Many felt that just having a silk based dress could cause too many...

Achieving the perfect Wedding photos ….

Posted on

One of the key pieces of advice that people tend to give when you are planning a Wedding is to pay for a good photographer, as the photos are something you will look back on forever.  A photographer however can only work with the scene that you provide and so it is important to be thinking about the photographs all the way through the Wedding planning.   This is something we have tried to keep in mind when developing the Matchimony range.   Having a colour theme running through your photobook creates a stylish and elegant look and helps the photographer create...

An Awesome Autumn Winter Fashion Week

Posted on

This week saw the fabulous Autumn Winter London Fashion Week and it was awesome! Gone are the days of AW collections being about covering up and braving the cold. This year designers embraced a huge array of trends from graphic prints to multicoloured flowers to really bring the dullest season of the year to life. Across the fabulous Temperley London show we saw stunning pops of flowers, mixed with oriental prints, to give the traditional dress a stunning twist.   We love this concept of having a different spin on your Bridesmaid Dresses and have found beautiful printed flower fabrics...

We love Valentine’s here at the Matchimony office and get swept up in the romance of the day.   So much so that I purchased a For My Daddy on Valentine’s Day Card – cute or tacky, you decide?!  We know the cynics say it is just a commercial opportunity and every day should be Valentine’s but realistically everyday life gets in the way and we love having a special day to celebrate love.   A Valentine’s Wedding is a lovely way of ensuring you never forget your anniversary and can be extremely beautiful.   Mixing reds, pinks and white provide a striking and romantic...

Award Season and Evening Wear Trends we adore!

Posted on

At the Matchimony office we love an award ceremony, all in the name of “research” we sit and ooh and ahh over the beautiful gowns and dapper menswear.   The awards are a brilliant insight into the  future trends in occasionwear and this year’s National Television Awards and Golden Globes were no exception. White is no longer just reserved for the bride and was a huge trend at both the Golden Globes and National Television Awards.   From Vicky Pattinson to Lady C outrageous Wedding dress, white brightened up a freezing night at the NTAs.   Whilst white might not be making...

Introducing the Matchimony Multiway ……

Posted on

Photoshoot mania descended on the Matchimony office last month as we did two photoshoots of our new collection in one week!  One photoshoot in a week is stressful and so having two is just crazy but the results were well worth the chaos.      A photoshoot requires a whole team of people including a brilliant photographer, make up artist, hairdresser, models and assistants to prepare the items before photographing.    We are so lucky at Matchimony that from the beginning we have had an army of helpers that have made the shoots possible.    The shoots have now become fun as...

Here comes the bride all dressed in _______?

Posted on

Traditionally a bride had the choice of the entire rainbow of colours when choosing her Wedding colour theme to match her white/ivory dress, yet with the latest trend of coloured and printed wedding gowns the choice is slightly more difficult!    We absolutely adored the floral wedding dress trend for 2016 that was seen on many of the bridal catwalks, these beautiful prints looked amazing on the bridal gowns.
