If this phrase hasn’t already been coined, we’re claiming it. Last week, when Paddy and I were making wedding plans, and subsequently worrying about our spiralling budget, Paddy just uttered ‘YOMO’ and we fell about laughing.

Gooooddd morning all! I always think it feels weird writing these posts ahead of time because I assume everything is right with the world a few days/weeks in advance. What I do know is that flowers make everything better. As you can probably tell from my choice of branding, I adore flowers. I am still very much learning how to grow and capture their beauty which is why I often leave it to the professionals. Are you ready for some stunning inspiration?

Good morning and happy hump day! We have a stunning wedding on the blog today, I love that Esme couldn’t choose one favourite part of the day so left a bullet pointed list. My kind of bride. Esme also chose my favourite bridal shoes, exceptionally jealous. I love that Esme’s dress could turn in to 3 different looks, saves buying a change in outfit. The whole day is filled with so many happy faces and beautiful flowers, Esme has given some excellent advice at the end of the article.

There seems to be tonnes of pressure on women to look perfect at their weddings. Have you noticed? I don’t see many grooms-to-be panicking about how their eyebrows will look on the day they tie the knot. Not once has Steve said, ‘I have to go cleanse, tone and moisturise right now or my skin will look a hundred in the morning.’ It all seems kind of unfair…Read More

Without giving anything away, it’s my friend’s hen party this month (which I’m a bridesmaid for) and mine is also coming up soon, so I wanted to take this time to reflect on what the must haves for a good hen party are, along with a few have nots!
