Wonderful Wang At Chateau Lagorce.

Rebecca-And-Fang

This afternoon’s wedding marks the first big day that I’ve blogged that includes a Vera Wang gown and by gosh folks it really is Wangtastic. I mean seriously beautiful…all frothy tulle and fishtail and organza and sequins and rosettes. In short I’ve fallen head over heels for it and I’m certain that you’ll love it just as much as I do.

Rebecca married her boy Fang (totally awesome name by the way!) at Chateau Lagorce, Bordeaux. I mean if there was ever a backdrop for that fairytale of a frock then this beautiful venue has to be it! They gallivanted amongst the vineyards flanked by maids in coral and decadent croquembouches and sparkly Jimmy Choos.

I’ve died and gone to princess heaven.

DIY The Olivia Palermo Pony.

pony-cover

If you’re anything like me then you might be a little bit of a fan of Olivia Palermo. She always looks so impeccably dressed and so put together that I think I’d be permanently green with envy if I were one of her friends.

Granted her recent wedding outfit was not to everyone’s taste but I loved the fact that she made her big day sartorial decisions based on her own style rather than conforming to conventional bridal fashions. She’s a girl after my own heart in that sense of the word and I wouldn’t ever say no to a pair of Hangisi pumps either. Are you listening Manolo??

If you caught up with our recent bold lip tutorial then you’ll already be aware that we’ll be sharing lots and lots of beauty and hair DIYs to take you through the next few months to Christmas and beyond. This week then we’ll be talking you through the necessary steps to recreate a modern day ponytail with backcombing and everything…much like Olivia sported on her big day.

Shall we get started…

pony-how-to

1 & 2. Split the hair into 3 sections: The first section should be split from ear to ear across the back of your head at the nape of your neck. The second section is formed above this from ear to ear across the crown of your head leaving the final and third section at the front.
3. Secure each respective section with a hairband to keep them separate from one another.… View the full post.

Peach And Pistachio In Kentish Heaven.

Pauline-And-Jon

Oh we have a little bit of Kentish heaven on the blog for you this morning in the form of Pauline and Jon’s big day. I can promise you peaches and pistachio and a healthy dose of girly vintage glamour.

This sweet twosome married at the romantically named Beacon House in Whitstable before departing in an awesome Morris Minor to their favourite restaurant The Good’s Shed where they hosted their rustic wedding reception. Honestly it is so different but in such an amazing way; I really am very much in awe.

I’m also lusting after Pauline’s green heart-shaped wedding shoes courtesy of Vivienne Westwood, the perfect accessory to Pauline’s beautiful garden rose, wax flower and eucalyptus hairpiece. It is SO pretty!

And then there’s the croquembouche which is utterly AWESOME. You need to pin it right away…

Vintage At The Millhouse.

Aoife-And-Damien

I have to say that I do love being able to blog an Irish wedding. Those beautiful folk from across the sea always seem to possess such style, such poise, all packaged up with a huge dollop of fun and Aoife and Damien’s big day is no exception.

This beautiful duo married at The Millhouse in Slane amidst pink roses and romantically ramshackle outhouses filled to the brim with character. Aoife told me that when she was younger she wanted to be Audrey Hepburn when she grew up and that her own wedding dress reminded her of something Audrey Hepburn might have worn in Funny Face. I have to say that I absolutely adore that comparison and that her ruminations aren’t far from the truth in my opinion.

Oh and there’s an ice-cream truck, a fantastic idea that just doesn’t get old in my opinion. If only I was lucky enough to attend a wedding where one turns up with its merry little tune….

Let’s take a look…

Luminous Luminosity.

Lighting-Post

In case you hadn’t already guessed from the oh so obvious title of this post, this afternoon we’ll be discussing the joys and jubilations of good lighting design at weddings. I’m not sure whether it’s the gradually fading Summer light and the fact that the nights are drawing in but increasingly my thoughts have turned lately to the importance of lighting schemes at weddings particularly during the late Autumn and Winter months.

Lighting.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I implore you to consider this crucial element when planning your wedding decor.

I’m guessing that the majority of you possess a seemingly endless wedding ‘decor’ checklist all of which needs to be covered by a rather stretched wedding budget and lighting really doesn’t feature all that highly.

I get it.

Honestly I do.

Is adding the most fantastic light display that the world has ever seen absolutely essential?

Perhaps not. But a carefully thought-out lighting design is the key to successfully creating mood and atmosphere within your reception venue.

Lighting is your best friend – in more ways than one. Luminary devices subtly help to influence mood and signify the beginning and end of different stages of the wedding day. Plus I can guarantee that an excellent lighting layout will have your photographer praising you from the rooftops.

Manolos And Sparklers In The Garden.

Elizabeth-And-Manassah

I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve been suffering a case of the green eyed monster ever since I clapped eyes on Elizabeth and Manassah’s wedding namely because of the exquisite fashion that bride Elizabeth sported on the day itself.

Firstly there are the royal blue Manolo Blahniks as sported by both Carrie Bradshaw and Olivia Palermo on their own wedding days swiftly followed by the bespoke Matthew Williamson inspired feathered evening frock topped off by a heavenly lacy gown by White Rose. Honestly Elizabeth has the most wonderful sartorial taste.

And I haven’t even begun to tell you about the florals (you need to see Elizabeth’s bouquet!), or the naked cake or the cutesy rustic table plan or the beautiful jewellery made from the buttons of Elizabeth’s grandma’s own wedding dress.

Oh and there’s the sparkler send-off…yep an actual send-off with hundreds of sparklers amongst which Elizabeth and Manassah shared a passionate kiss or two. In my opinion wedding day kisses are the absolute best!

A Wintery Black Tie Wedding At Castlemartyr.

Kiara-And-Gregg

Who is in the mood for an ultra glamorous Black Tie affair set against the wintry backdrop of Castlemartyr in Ireland? Well you’re in luck because we have exactly that in Kiara and Gregg’s delicious wedding this afternoon.

And these two are hot. Like seriously HOT. Perfection right down to Gregg’s shiny shoes and Kiara’s sparkly toes bringing with them a serious dollop of Hollywood glamour to these pages for our delection.

The pair opted for a winter wedding at Castlemartyr partly for sentimental reasons and partly because they felt that the venue would be just as beautiful on a cold wet winter’s day as it would at the height of summer and I have to say that they weren’t wrong. I adore the colour palette that Kiara has integrated into her wedding – all soft minky greys with subtle golden undertones and a dash of dusty pink – perfect for the time of year.
