|The only photo I could find from a New Year where I don’t have my eyes closed.|
I don’t like making resolutions, mainly because they are broken within 2 weeks. However, I do think that January is a great time to reassess your current goals and objectives and see how you are getting along.
My heart and soul have poured in to the blog, since about September time (after all the illness bla bla bla) and it has shown, my stats have increased, comments have increased, and little secret DMs or emails have increased (which I loveeee).
So my blog’s resolutions are:
- To continue being awesome (re arrogant and pretentious)
- To feature more real weddings, because I know you love it. You may not leave comments but my stats tell me so.
- To do more collaborative work
- To feature more suppliers from Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, my two favourite counties. Both have a hell of a lot to offer.
- To buy a camera so I can actually show you decent photos.
- To be nice to others
- World peace (oh no wait, that’s a different list)
Did you have a lovely Christmas? Have you consumed your weight in wrapped chocolate and guzzled copious amounts of champagne. Are you ready to do it all over again this weekend? If you follow me on twitter @phoebewedding, you will have seen some of these photos but its good to update everyone, whether they may care or not…
|I got creative|
|Sent my list to “Father Christmas”|
|But Father Christmas came back with these…|
|Chase got dressed up|
|as did Geoff|
I feel like I am forgetting something? I think I got another gift? Hmmmm…Oh yeah….I opened this….
And I got a fricking puppy. A real one.
His name will be Atticus and he arrived on the 7th January
Just in case you are passing. Merry Christmas!! Now go back to being gluttonous.
More like Copious Photo Friday. I am annoyed. Its not Christmas without snow…this blog post is a raindance equivalent.
Listen to this….

Photography – Peter Bang
Brides Dress – Dolly Couture
Venue – Weinberg Centre for the Arts
Stationery – Lauren said “I designed the invitation, info card, and ticket in Illustrator, then had a metal plate for printing made from a PDF. My uncle pressed them on an old printing press that he owns.”
You should also have a look at their engagement shoot. It included coffee, chess and Harry Potter. I was sold.
It’s heart-warming and a wonderful winter/Christmas palette for the home, or for your wedding.
Did you enjoy Laura’s wedding yesterday? Its officially 5 days till Christmas, you know when you have hit the 20s on the advent calender that you are nearly there. Christmas eve is my most treasured day of the year. The anticipation, the excitement, the wonderful TV, copious amounts of mulled wine and my mothers fish pie.
Here are some things my mighty iphone captured over the weekend…
Are you ready? Are you excited? Do you like blue and gold? Have you asked for a puppy/Canon EOS for Christmas but think you’ll get neither? Me too.
I believe that Laura has graced the pages of this blog a couple of times before, the latest was to do with the Brides Up North tweet up we attended together. Having spoken to Laura for months on twitter, we had our first encounter in a pub before going to the tweet up. We were in the same boat, we laughed nervously, we drank, we networked, we got lots of sweets, took lots of photos and we left. It was wonderful. I then suggested an xfactor style sleepover chez moi, she brought along her beautiful pup Daisy, Diet Coke, and salt & vinegar chip sticks. From that day forth I declared us the best of friends and I wanted her to stay for forever.
