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.

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

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.

Its getting harder and harder not to add Christmas goods in you know, all the shops are stocking them now. When is it ok? Do I still have to wait till November? Writing this weeks and I haven’t bought anything off the list…I am very proud of myself. I am tempted by the pink loafers and that embroided bolero though. Just trying to think when I’d wear it? It would look amazing for a winter wedding though! (update I bought the New Look rose print dress) Continue reading
This afternoon we are peeking in to Michelle Hailey’s handbag, European Director of the fabulous twobirds Bridesmaid. T0 see their glorious gowns in action, have a look at the real weddings on their blog. I was really gutted to find twobirds after I had gotten married, I loved not only the colour palette, but the ease of having a dress that could tie so many ways and look stunning no matter how it was worn.

I think you will know by now, especially if you follow me on instagram, that I have a thing for pastels. After reading Selina Lake’s – Pretty Pastel Style, I wanted everything in pale hues. I have to consciously reign myself in and put the paint pot down. I adore Jenna’s choice of bridesmaids gowns (who are all so beautiful!) and that campervan *heart eye emoji*.
(Jenna, may I also add you were a dream to blog, excellent hyperlinking!)

You may notice a little addition to the side bar today, not quite sure where to put it yet but by jiminy it shall be there! Would it be blog vain of me to make it less pink, maybe black and white it??
Today’s wedding is of course beautiful, but I am loving all of the hard work that went in to collecting all the details for it, right down to the hunting for 1920s sheet music. I also have the same favourite moment as Naomi.

Morning! I am not quite sure how this week will be able to top last week (though the apprentice does start on Tuesday!), what I do know is that we have another week full of beautiful weddings, inspiration and some beauty on Friday. I like that I have finally (4 years later) managed to get in to a blog routine, and from what I can gather you do too!
This wedding is rather perfect for a rainy monday, and just you wait till you see Pam’s engagement ring…
