EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Charlie Brocket gets his ancestral home back for his daughter’s wedding…

Posted on by iwano@_84

When Charlie Brocket was jailed for insurance fraud in the Nineties, he had to sell his ancestral home, Brocket Hall, on a 60-year lease.

I can reveal there was, however, a happy return last weekend for his model daughter, Antalya, whose wedding reception was held at the Hertfordshire stately home.

‘Antalya grew up there, so it was quite special,’ former I’m a Celebrity . . . contestant Lord Brocket tells me. ‘There were a lot of happy memories.’

It was not even known Antalya, 32, had a boyfriend.

Chocolate is the only good wedding theme

Posted on by iwano@_84

In mid-September, a marriage took place in New Hampshire that was nothing short of a once-in-a-lifetime marketing opportunity. It was the wedding ceremony of Jessica Russell and Rich Stover, which, if you’re part of the PR team representing the Russell-Stover chocolates company, is a most blessed union indeed. The brand went a little bonkers for the occasion, composing digital wedding invitations, creating a “bespoke wedding cake,” and providing all manner of swag to the entire wedding party. That included branded socks, bow ties, glassware, pocket squares, silk robes, and even little bottles of hand sanitizer. Congrats to the happy /couple/ marketing department!

Emma Corrin is living her ultimate royal life.

The British actress, 24, steps into the kitten heels of the late Princess Diana in Season 4 of The Crown, and is loving every second of recreating the royal’s most famous moments.

“One of the most iconic things was the wedding dress – that was an insane moment,” Corrin, 24, says in the Fall edition of Glass Magazine, where she dazzles on the cover in yellow Fendi and Bulgari jewels.

“The Emannuels, who designed her wedding dress, came in and gave [the wardrobe design team] all the original designs, so it was a complete replica,” she says.

Posted on by iwano@_84

There may be a few hangovers out there this morning after restrictions on bars eased late on Friday afternoon, allowing people to have a few beers standing up and mingle at venues across the state.

The new road map in celebration of how Queenslanders have managed to keep coronavirus at bay reduces restrictions for travellers, home gatherings and weddings as well, step by step.

Story Bridge Hotel manager Dee Maloney says relaxing the rules will make her job so much easier.

“We can’t wait. It has been pretty stressful. It will make us happier and definitely makes the customers happier,” she said.

“Hopefully everyone behaves and things keep going the right way with community transmission. If things keep going well, hopefully we can have a dance floor by Christmas.”

But if you like to hit the dance floor after a few drinks, you will have to wait until November 1

From Delish

When Ree Drummond’s daughter Alex announced she was engaged in August, fans were totally delighted, but it turns out Paige Drummond was the first to appear on social media in a wedding dress. This adorable moment happened when Paige and Alex took turns trying on Ree’s dress from her 1996 wedding.

The proud mom and Pioneer Woman star shared a photo of Paige smiling while posing in the more-than-20-year-old dress that frankly looks brand new. Ree explained in the caption that both of her daughters tried on the dress but she didn’t post a photo of Alex trying it on “because we’re tryna keep the mystery over here.” She added that she doesn’t think either of her daughters will wear the dress on their wedding days but she’ll save it for a granddaughter or goddaughter.

“…or maybe I’ll wear it when Ladd and

The former Stephanie Lynn Dowling and Patrick Matthew Sandlin were married Sept. 3 at 5100 Banquet Hall on Lancaster Avenue in Philadelphia after having to switch to a smaller venue because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Posted on by iwano@_84

A Burton wedding planner says she is distraught as customers keep having to postpone their big days due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Louise Hughes has been working as a wedding planner for 14 years after setting up Lush Occasions, which is based at the Centrum 100 business park in the town, and says she is very anxious about what the future will hold for businesses like hers.

Since the lockdown was announced in March she has only completed work for one wedding, with some of her customers postponing their weddings three times now due to restrictions during the pandemic.

The 50-year-old, who lives in Stretton, said: “The coronavirus pandemic has had a massive impact on the wedding planning industry and it’s been very tough to keep going.

“For me, personally I have had to give a lot of my customers their deposits back and others have postponed into next year
