Hello! Welcome to our little corner of the internet, Bride and Tonic. We are a bridal blog who believe in simplicity and sustainability, with a love for the smaller, intimate wedding. We support shopping ethical, independent and local, and want your wedding story to shine through. With Nikki having been through the wedding planning process, and Elle recently married, we have a wealth of wedding experience! We understand that wedding planning can be an overwhelming process. Just search the internet for weddings and you start to feel bombarded… We wanted to create a simple, stylised blog that was easy to read, calm on the eyes and a soothing tonic to your wedding woes. Enjoy perusing our lovely Bride and Tonic, we think you will enjoy.
But first, let us introduce ourselves…
A west London girl born and bred with a competitive edge and creative heart. A pint sized perfectionist, I spend my days running some of TVs biggest channels and my evenings renovating my Victorian cottage.
When not working I can be found swimming in the nearest lake or running along the river or with the deer in Bushey Park. I have just finished my own wedding planning journey as I got hitched to Mr T this April. You can read all about our wedding planning on the blog!

Originally from the frozen North, I have lived in East London for 9 years. I got married to my university love in September 2013 in a campsite wedding which was DIY heaven! Since planning our wedding I caught the wedding bug and have been obsessed with all things wedding ever since – even though I no longer have one to plan for! I have a hobby in videography and can usually be found videoing my friends, probably annoying the heck out of them in the process! An advocate of trying to lead a more ethical lifestyle, I have a passion for helping our planet one small step a a time, without turning full on eco warrior!
