Morning lovely reader, I hope your Tuesday is going OK so far? The first real wedding of the week is the cute rustic wedding of Katie and James in Nottinghamshire. Katie wore a gorgeous lace dress with pretty headpiece whilst James opted for a very dapper three piece suit and pocket watch. I like that they added a vintage hint without going too overboard making the style of their time timeless and elegant. I hope you enjoy!

Don’t panic – you need to enjoy this special day. Create a list and get others to help you get tasks done. The day is perfect so try to enjoy organizing it…the day goes so fast! James and I managed to spend a lot of time together on the day but make sure you and your groom go for half an hour walk in the evening just to reflect on the day and appreciate it together.
