We’re talking about a topic we’ve never openly discussed before on this week’s Facebook Live, and it’s actually one of the big reasons I started Smashing The Glass, and it’s this: Sometimes Jewish weddings can start feeling a little same-y.
That’s why I’m beyond thrilled that expert event producer Kwame Knight of Events by Knight (who’s also an amazing DJ – I first met him when he spun at my own wedding!) will be chatting with me live on the our Smashing The Glass Facebook page this Thursday, 25 October, all about how to plan a wedding that’s a perfect reflection of you as a couple!
OMG last night was sooooo fabulous! I debuted my fabulous new pink STG-branded mic for a special ‘behind the scenes’ Facebook Live show at London’s world-famous Browns Bride, to showcase the breathtaking new Galia Lahav 2019 collection of dreams.
There were press, bloggers, and brides aplenty, all waiting in anticipation for the fashion show which revealed Galia Lahav’s latest jaw-dropping bridal collection, ‘Queen of Hearts’ (very aptly named with Royal Wedding fever in the air!).

Known for creating some of the most covetable and fashion forward styles in bridal, there was a real buzz in the air and STG wanted to capture ALL the Galia Lahav thrills with our ‘behind the scenes’ Facebook Live show.

We also talked to an array of gorgeous bride-to-be-Smashing The Glass readers about their wedding plans (ADORE meeting the readers!) and fabulous bloggers like lovely Claire from One Fab Day, and Felicia from Stylechine (who’s also a bride-to-be too — we loved hearing about her wedding plans!).
It’s an absolute must-watch!
Look out for the blog post and film from the actual fashion show once the images from the wonderful Anna Bianco are released.

Back in January we filmed our first big Facebook Live of 2018, and boy, was it one for the records!
Live-broadcasting from one of the world’s most gorgeous bridal boutiques, London’s Mirror Mirror (a much-loved Recommended Vendor), I was lucky enough to meet with co-founders Maria and Jane, sisters-in-law who started their business 29 years ago out of a shared passion for artisan bridal fashion.
These two inspirational ladies, who I got to know after noticing that so many of our STG Real Brides bought their gowns from Mirror Mirror, are both designers and stockists of some of the hottest international bridal designers, including Nurit Hen, Hayley Paige, YolanCris, Gemy Maalouf, and Atelier Pronovias. So who better to talk us through the top luxury wedding dress trends for 2018/19?
We had the amazing Roberta Facchini Photography on hand to sneak some behind-the-scenes photos. She was a joy to work with, and I’m absolutely delighted to share the images she snapped with you!
Seriously, how AMAZING was January’s Smashing Summit?
Four hours worth of wedding industry superstars (we’re talking Mindy Weiss, Monique Lhuillier, Ron Ben-Israel, Galia Lahav‘s Chief Designer, Duke Photography, Bruce Russell, Blake Ezra, Food Story, and host of other icons expertly answering ALL your Jewish (and Jew-ish) wedding questions.
The Summit celebrated our brand new (and already very in demand!) Members Club where brides save time, save money (hello 10% vendor discount!), get matched with their perfect wedding vendors, receive the coolest Smash Glass Pouch ever, AND get advised directly by me and a community of sophisticated fellow brides
