Gooood morning! It is Wednesday. The week is nearly over. Have you done any wedding planning this week or do you save it for the weekends? We are flying over to Athens for today’s inspiration as I was submitted this pretty and romantic bridal inspiration. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be in Greece right now? Sunshine, salads and sea, yes please! I can’t get over how beautifully blue the models eyes are, almost as blue as the Aegean sea. Cheesy? Yes, I am in that kind of mood. I adore the grey dress with the pastel hues, soft and subtle.

The story of my wedding venue is a pretty simple one. I visited just one venue fell in love and booked it within one week. What isn’t straight forward is I actually visited the venue on my own and booked it before Stephen my partner had even seen it.
As mentioned Stephen works away sometimes up to 10 weeks at a time and it just so happened that my venue’s first ever open day fell on a day Stephen was away. I deliberated whether I should wait for him to come home before starting to view venues, but curiosity got the better off me. I took my family with me to view the venue my Mum spent the 50 minute journey complaining that the venue was too far away and I needed somewhere closer to home.Read More
Afternoon all! It feels so nice being able to write about house stuff on the blog, one of my new years resolutions was to resurrect the lifestyle element of the blog, which I have been adding to a little bit but I can finally add some house pics. I am actually going to do a full kitchen post with photos before/after, links to all the suppliers used, and what I would do differently. But today, a little wall refresh with some pretty prints and a discount code for you. Read More
Morning! Ooooo we have a gorgeous wedding on the blog today. Sarah is wearing one of my favourite wedding dresses, I love the detailing of the lace and the button back, I think it adds something a little boho to quite an elegant silhouette. The bridal prep photos at The Rosewood are beautiful, the hotel makes for such an elegant backdrop. James looks exceptionally dashing in his navy suit, and I am loving the polka dot tie. They opted for quite a relaxed botanical theme with palm print stationery, foliage flowers and mixed metallics, it all worked exceptionally well. I hope you enjoy!

Morning and a merry Monday to you! Today’s wedding of Becca and Jonny comes to you from a rather rainy Devon. These images prove that it doesn’t really matter if it rains on your wedding day as it actually makes for some fun photo moments. The beautiful surroundings of the coast, plus a stunning bride and groom more than make up for a few rainy hours. As if by magic by the end of the day there are some gorgeous stormy landscape pictures.

Although I had been wrong many times before; when I had wanted to find my dress in the bridal shop that shall remain unnamed. When I was convinced Isabella Grace would have so many dresses I would fall in love with, that I couldn’t possibly narrow it down to just one. And then when I found the dress of my dreams with a frankly ridiculous and unachievable price tag.
BUT I had a really good feeling about House of Snow!!! Plus I couldn’t be wrong forever..Read More
It’s finally March! I’m definitely feeling Spring is on it’s way, so it’s time to inject some colour into our lives again! (yay). This week I thought I’d show you these lovely new lipsticks from Burt’s BeesRead More
Those of you who read our engagement story will know that it happened half way through our Greek holiday last August while Steve and I were navigating a boat around Paxos and Antipaxos. We agreed that evening, over a massive bowl of seafood and saffron linguine, that we wouldn’t launch into wedding-planning until we got home because it would distract us from savouring much-needed relaxation time and the beautiful surroundings of Paxos.Read More
Good afternoon! I wanted to introduce this in January but I was ill towards the end so didn’t have the chance. And to be honest, I think my January favourites would have consisted of Omeprazole, my bed, and porridge. I know there is nothing new and fresh to a ‘favourites’ post, it is the basic bitch’s bread and butter, but I want to share what I have been loving (and sometimes hating) to put a little bit more of my personality back in to the blog. Whilst we have The Weekend Edit (and 30 under 30 will be making a come back!) I want to make sure there is still an injection of the lifestyle element to the blog. Just because you ladies (and gents) are engaged, doesn’t mean that you don’t want to read other content. Usually my waffle. Plus, I love shopping and trying new things, I feel like it helps if I try before you buy. If anything, it is a public service…Read More
When I think of Brighton, I think of the pier and the gorgeous painted beach huts. Mel and Dave had a pretty handmade wedding, with Mel’s mum making the dress and doing the flowers (amongst other things!). They embraced their colourful surroundings and had beautifully bright blooms, watercolour stationery and bright blue shoes!
