[Bespoke Bridal Shoes]

If you’re reading this and are either married or a bride-to-be, you will totally get where I’m coming from. Bridal shoes are historically ugly. It’s just the way it is. Everything is elaborate, with embellishment, strange heel heights, often a hideously pointy-point that you would NEVER usually wear. When I first got engaged I wondered around the shops seeing what was on offer and quite frankly … Continue reading [Bespoke Bridal Shoes]

[Signs]

Now I don’t know about you, but ever since entering the wonderful world of wedding planning I have spent many, many hours staring longingly at light up signs.

[Flashy Florals]

  There’s no room for shrinking violets here nor wallflowers either.   No sirree, it’s all about florals that pop. Single blooms of large proportions – think peonies, hydrangeas and roses – and florals of saturated hues so bright you need sunglasses. It’s all about making a flower fashion statement this summer.

[Quintessentially British Wedding]

I’ve been thinking a lot about my wedding recently, mainly the fact that I haven’t got a clue when I’m getting married. I have no date, have no venue, have no real clue what I’m doing. It’s so overwhelming, so many things to think about when planning your big day. I spent some time on pinterest today, trying to work out the kind of wedding … Continue reading [Quintessentially British Wedding]

[Breast-Baring Wedding]

Well where do I even start with this one… While I was away Lady Mary Charteris got married in the picturesque county of Gloucestershire at her family home, Stanway House. Now with Daphne Guinness as her aunt, it was a pretty safe bet that Lady Mary’s wedding dress would be anything but conventional. No duchess satin gowns for this girl. With a wedding guest list … Continue reading [Breast-Baring Wedding]

[All About The Dress]

Saturday 8am – A knock at my bedroom door. It’s my over-excited mother. “Are you awake? Are you ready? Are you excited?” Whispered at about 1000 miles an hour. Bright and early Saturday morning my dear mother and I went wedding dress shopping (eeeek!). I’ve always dreamed of walking down the aisle in the quintessential white dress, but when presented with rails upon rails of … Continue reading [All About The Dress]
