Good morning all! Sample sales are no longer what they use to be. You may have visions of Monica from Friends blowing a whistle whilst wrestling other brides to be, but no, they are a lot more luxurious than that, and Fross Wedding Collections does a sample sale wonderfully. Their sample sale requires an appointment and you will have access to the staff and all the beautiful sale gowns to yourself, no other manic brides, no whistles, no stress! Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
Morning!! Ohhh todays wedding..! Nicola and James’s day really does epitomise a pretty, English wedding. From the quaint village church to the blousy bouquets and formal attire. It is a dream!

Afternoon and here’s to a brand new week! I hope you have been enjoying, and taking part in #marriedmay? I have loved going through everyones images each morning and getting to know you all a little better. On to today’s wedding which comes from the London suburb of Harrow, and I think the first we have blogged from there. Chris and Emily’s wedding took place in a beautiful barn which was swathed in fairy lights and pretty pastel flowers.

I want this photo on my wedding morning.
I have to admit, I was a little slack on the hair and make up front which meant that stress levels inevitably went through the roof..
To cut a very long, very stressful story short, I had graciously accepted a couple of suggestions for hair and make up artists from various people. Unfortunately, both the hair and make up options I had been set on, for well over 12 months, fell through simultaneously. Then panic ensued and it was all hands on deck to find replacements!Read More
Dubbed “the most instagrammable salon in London”, Duck & Dry is a one stop shop for styling on the go in central London – specialising in blow drys and modern updos, it also offers Prosecco (oh yes), alongside a cute floral nail bar and makeup station, so I popped in for a visit this week to have a peek.Read More
Rumour has it that the people of 18th century France were putting words into Marie Antoinette’s mouth so that they could turn her into a scapegoat. At the heart of it, I think the French were, and still are, just obsessed with cake.Read More
Good morning! Today we have the gorgeous wedding of Cat, who submitted her wedding after reading the blog during her planning last year. I love how much detail she goes in to about her planning, I am sure there are lots of tips and advice most brides can take from her. I hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend and you’re easing back in to work slowly!

(This is not my wedding dress)
*SPOILER ALERT* It wasn’t all fairytales and tears of joy I’m afraid girls.
I think there are two types of brides to be when wedding dress shopping; those who have been waiting for their princess moment and who can’t think of anything better than being in a big white gown, and those who feel more natural in their own clothes and see a wedding dress as a means to an end. I definitely sit in the latter camp unfortunately.
I am going to be honest, Married May is the highlight of my working year. I genuinely look forward to it, and I get so so blue when it has all finished. I check back through the hashtag during the year in the hopes that those of you who were nearly married update me, and I am never disappointed. For new readers (hello, welcome) that don’t know, let me explain what it is. Each year I find new brides to follow, or fall totally in love with the wedding you’ve just had, I love the community it builds and the positivity it spreads. So married May 2017 – LET’S DO THIS.
