THE WEDDING DIARIES – Postponed without sadness.

Sasha PallariWedding DiariesLeave a Comment

We haven’t cancelled our wedding. We’re not heartbroken, we’re not devastated, but we have made the decision to postpone a very special day. Over the last few weeks the entire world has been forced to a halt and it is without great sadness that we’ve had to postpone our wedding until next year. It would seem that by the overwhelmingly … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – The not so shiny parts

Sasha PallariWedding Diaries

During last year, I really enjoyed writing these blogs. I loved sharing our wedding plans and helping inspire other brides to come up with ideas for their own too. With my work being predominantly based around weddings, there’s not much I haven’t seen or witnessed within the industry so sharing that advice and knowledge was great fun. I questioned myself … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – Meet the parents… in Sicily

Sasha PallariWedding Diaries

The Wedding Diaries, it has been. a. while. And whilst in every aspect of my life and online I like to be completely truthful and transparent the reason for the break in these entries is that, much like planning life, planning a wedding is STRESSFUL. Aside from writers block, wedding planning drama, working during a busy wedding season, the fact … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – Let the dress hunt commence…

Sasha PallariWedding Diaries

  From the minute we’d got engaged, ‘the dress’ hadn’t really crossed my mind. I know I’ve mentioned many times that a two-year engagement was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made but after the first year has passed (ridiculously quick) I’d eventually realised that I would definitely need to plan this one, as relying on a last minute … Read More

Sasha PallariWedding Diaries

I had so many rules about Bridesmaids before I got engaged, but after three months of my Mum listening to the in-depth analysis of each friendship… the rules went out of the window. Unashamedly, I have a lot of friends and I’ve somehow managed to surround myself with the best of them. The problem is, where on earth do you draw the line, and … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – The Sicilian venue search

Sasha PallariWedding Diaries

12 hours into being engaged we’d already found our venue, because obviously when you type ‘Italian Wedding’ into that Pinterest search bar… it’s going to happen. Fast forward 5 days when we received the email back from said venue, informing us that it would be £7,000 per day for exclusive use, on top of the already extortionate hire costs – … Read More

THE WEDDING DIARIES – My big fat (should be Greek) Italian Wedding

Sasha PallariWedding Diaries

“I honestly think that if we did get engaged, I’d be able to plan my wedding in 24 hours… because that’s just what it’s like when you work in the wedding industry…” My Dad has informed me that he will be wearing a white suit; I’ve lost sleep over choosing the right bridesmaids after preaching for years that you should never … Read More

They were right, “The first one will always be the most difficult.” And truth be told, every aspect of the first #BESTYOU event was difficult. But as soon as the feedback started to come back every single moment of stress was worth it. The minute I realised that what I was doing was making a difference to women, I couldn’t … Read More

#BESTYOU Makeup Evening

Sasha PallariBlog

When I first started out as a makeup artist my intention was to do makeup whether it be for an event, a wedding or a special occasion. I’d never thought I had anything more than that to offer, it just happened to be something I very much enjoyed. Five years on and I’m sat here writing a blog post about … Read More
