beauty-favourites2-800x5101-740x471

I should probably start by saying that these products have worked well for my skin type which is a little on the dry side. There will be at least one Clarins product, because, well, I fricking love them.

Thirty Under Thirty #14 | uk wedding blog

Tut14header

You will be proud yet again, I have resisted. Though I am very close to buying the dog case from Cath Kidston AND those Boden slippers. I already have the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow which really are incredible. The depth of colour and their staying power is just incredible. If you are looking for an investment for the christmas season then those are definitely it.

As it’s halloween tomorrow we are off to a party and have to bring along carved pumpkins. Michael and I are going to film us doing them tonight so look out for that atrocity soon.

sygm_simon_cathy_0060

I really love the use of tins and jars, it is so simple and refreshing. And really it is most grooms dream to have a mini pub on wheels at their wedding. Right? Catherine’s choice of gypsophila works so well with their pared back and simple theme. Also lovvvvinng Simon’s tweed tie.

I am so excited that I will be attending a wedding at Priory Cottages soon as it is one of my favourite venues up here in Yorkshire.

floral hairpieces, soft purples and rustic decor for a Lancashire wedding | uk wedding blog

0022

Morning! Phil and Charlotta Hargreaves met at Manchester University and used this to tie in a little decor to their day, focussing on the colour purple. (Stirling was forest green and silver, yuk!) I love Charlotta’s fresh floral headpiece, and the back of her Mori Lee dress is beautiful. Also really liking the mother of the bride outfit in this wedding. Very elegant but modern.

Juliet Mckee Photography - Jenny & John wedding-93

This weekend was fun. We had a lovely relaxing night on Friday, caught up on Homeland and other TV series Miller missed whilst he was away in the U.S. On Saturday we blitzed the house and then hosted Americans in the evening from Michaels work. I always enjoy talking to Americans. On Sunday, in a very fragile manner we headed to a neighbours house for lunch which was just perfect, exactly what I was craving. A good weekend sets you up well for the week ahead doesn’t it?

On to today’s wedding…The more I see of Juliet’s work, the more I fall in love with it. Her images are always so beautifully light and dreamy, and the couples always look so natural and relaxed. Also, if you are a cat lover you should follow her on instagram. She seems to own all of the Siamese that ever existed.

Morning!! It’s Thursday, which means it is time to hide your purses because I am going to show you pretty things for your home, your face, your body and your wedding. I am nice like that.

A couple of people have asked me why I have’t written a post on my Cosmo win yet. Honestly, I don’t think it needs one? I am in next months mag where you can read all about it and me, and you all know how grateful I am for your votes. What more is there to say? You don’t want some vacuous fluffy post about how hard I have worked bla bla bla. You are my readers and I know you are more intelligent, and easily bored (like me) and already know these things.   Continue reading

the most amazing DIY and flower heaven wedding in Barnack | uk wedding blog

BHP_277_JMP

I always thought that writing this intro was going to be easy, I went to school with the bride, I have seen the groom pop up on my Facebook for years. But as I put this post together and teared a little at the images of Pete crying at seeing his bride, I realised I was actually quite lost for words. I have followed Helen’s entire journey. From being at school with her, drinking with her, keeping in touch with her, and liking every picture she uploaded of her wedding planning. Let me tell you, this girl put serious graft in to their day. And as did Pete. Whilst he was stationed in the Falklands, he folded 1000 origami paper cranes. Yup. 1000. I think you are really going to love this wedding.

I will never tire of a Jenny Packham gown, they always look so beautifully elegant and always styled so differently no matter if the wedding is in a barn or a castle. Carol is no exception and looks stunning in her Damask gown and Ed’s Next suit is right up my street. When the bride is a florist, you know its going to be gorgeous! This weeks weddings are a particularly gorgeous lot by the way

Great-Barn-Rolvenden-Wedding-JonnyMP (122 of 208)

Good morning, and merry Monday! I hope your weekend was fun filled? We have got beautiful weddings Monday – Wednesday, a competition to win your wedding photography, more thirty under thirty and another whats in my bag. But on to this mornings wedding…

I think Emily is the smiliest bride I have ever blogged. As you will know, I am a bunting fiend and this wedding has plenty, plus fairy-lights in abundance. Tom and Emily’s approach to the flowers is the best way if you want a professional finish but need to cut costs. This is going to ease you in to Monday morning quite beautifully.
