How to find your dream wedding theme – with The Stars Inside

My advice to couples who are looking to unlock and refine their style is this: follow your heart and listen to what you are drawn to, but also keep an open mind about adapting the things you love to your wedding. Pinterest is a melting pot of ideas that can help you colour in your celebration, but it shouldn't be a source of pressure or expectation.

Your day should reflect your own priorities, personalities, passions and the investment you are comfortable making. There are no rules. Every single wedding is beautiful because it's unique to the couple; your love story isn't like anybody else's, so why should your wedding be? Certain looks and details can turn into trends, and by all means embrace them if you love them, but try to let go of the idea of what's in.

Ask yourself what your definition of beauty and luxury is. What do you surround yourself with in your home and in your holidays that makes you happy? Decades from now, you'll look back and remember choosing all the things you loved the most, while telling your story, and that's the most special thing there is.
