Five More Things…| uk wedding blog

…you probably didn’t know about me. (Following this post)

  • I used to play World of Warcraft. I stopped when I had a level 80 Tauren Druid. (I am a geek)
  • I have a bath every day, and I have done since I can remember
  • At a young age, whilst in Edinburgh, a gypsy put a curse on me.
  • I can play the violin and piano
  • Haha…I was in a “band”, we recorded a single and everything, it was called Come And Catch Me. I was worried it would make an appearance at the wedding

Did you all have a lovely bank holiday? 

This is what mine consisted of…
Going out for supper…Christmas comes early in Leeds
Baking a birthday for Rachel 

Setting up for a little birthday party, complete with candy bar…

We ate scallops, black pudding, jelly babies, maoam and drank prosecco. We discussed important matters such as almonds, the Pacific, Natalie Imbruglia and wedding photographers. We toasted the birthday girl who went home with her very own birthday bunting…
It was a beautiful day on Sunday, 
I read this in bed, and enjoyed the illustrations
I then found new places to store umbrellas
And I found my sister’s face on the internet…
I hope you had a lovely time? 

♥ Boris & Doris ♥

There are 3 reasons why I am already in love with Boris and Doris…

1) I love the name Boris, it is on my list of dog names ( I named this cushion Boris in the mean time…)

2) They used fruit sherbets in one of their photos
3) Its all so ruddy pretty!

So here is a bit about Boris and Doris

Boris and Doris are Briony and James. We’re both in our late twenties, met in London and have moved to Kent to be nearer to pretty pubs and parks. We have designed a range of invitations and are currently creating other stationery such as bunting, message tree cards, place cards, and thank you cards.

Boris & Doris started out as a sketch on a napkin on a summer’s day, as Briony and James were picnicking with friends. We had been asked to design a friend’s wedding stationery, and created our first collection. We enjoyed it so much, that we decided to take the plunge and start up Boris & Doris. We’ve never looked back, and have loved creating beautiful designs over tea and cake.

Our inspiration

Briony loves looking at vintage fabrics and dresses, reading wedding blogs (particularly ones with a 1950s or country garden theme), and can’t resist anything which is floral or kitsch. James has the difficult job of turning Briony’s pretty ideas into an invitation.

An unusual fact about Boris and Doris

Briony – I own over 400 pairs of knickers (another weakness – I can’t resist buying any which are floral, heart covered, or kitsch) and theme them to what I’m doing in the day!

James – I have a big weakness for trying new cheeses and always pick some up wherever we go. Our fridge usually has at least seven different types in!

Q & A time…

Favourite Colour: Pink! I (Briony) can’t resist buying any kitchen items in pink, although since moving in with James I’ve had to curb this (only a bit!).

Favourite Film: Briony: I’m slightly ashamed to say it’s the completely fluffy, but lovely, Legally Blonde.
James: Napoleon Dynamite “because it’s when ski boots came back into fashion”.

Favourite Song: Le Vie en Rose, Louis Armstrong (when James finally gets around to proposing, this will be our first dance song). For something a bit less slushy, CSS, Foals or Two Door Cinema Club, LCD Soundsystem.

Favourite Month: July – Summer holidays and picnics!

Favourite Drink: A good cup of tea!

Favourite Food: Cheese! We have a big weakness for trying new cheeses and always pick some up wherever
we go. Our fridge usually has at least seven different types in!

Favourite Word: Kerfuffle

Favourite Book: Best in Show, the Leon Cookbooks, anything with a pink cover or with a wedding theme.

Cupcake Schmupcake

There’s more out there. When will we move away from ruddy cupcakes? I’m bored now. 

There are other options you know? Par example…

Whilst I’m on it, may we please also move away from Alice in Wonderland and roses in teacups. Thank you.

It had to be really didn’t it? In a week full of despair, it’s so heart-warming to know that the social media the politicians were criticising can round up people to do something like this. Beautiful. 

I hope you all have a riot free weekend. I myself have a BBQ and a dinner party, neither of which I have to cook for. Bliss.
