Windswept Beauty and the Mermaids… Part 1

Since I first saw this wedding I have wanted it. Coveted it.

For months we waited patiently while Cara and Nye bonded with their new arrivals. They knew it was perfectly us. We knew it was perfectly them. And for no-one was it more perfect than Sophie and Glenn.

Sophie and Glenn were married on 17th August 2010 at Crear, in Argyll Scotland.

I think this is the most perfect wedding I have ever laid my eyes upon.

Feathery Gorgeousness

I didn’t want a traditional white wedding dress as although I did try some traditional white ones on, none felt right-so I scoured the internet for an evening dress (Glenn and I met on an internet dating site, I sourced most of my wedding from the internet!)

After many attempts I eventually found the Tadashi feathery Gown on the Bloomingdales Website in America, and loved it at first sight- But as nowhere in England stocks Tadashi Shoji (A Japanese Designer) I had to have it shipped from a store in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, slightly risky but luckily it was a risk worth taking! (It also went on a round-the-world trip after getting caught up in the Ash Cloud but luckily arrived in time to get it altered to fit!)

Gemstone beauties

I searched Etsy, the online craft/arts store, and discovered Melanie in Massachusetts , who trades under the name ‘LittleLuxury Boutique‘ she handcrafts unique jewellery using beautiful gemstones.

She handmade me a bracelet and matching drop earrings which she describes as ‘soft brown, champagne and beige gemstones, with metallic-lustered teal peacock freshwater pearls for a bold and beautiful accent of color against a neutral backdrop.… View the full post.

Pale and Oh So Interesting… Part 2


It’s Part 2 and a total detail-fest, never mind being the prettiest modern wedding I’ve seen in a long time. If you haven’t got time to read it properly now, make sure you come back later with a coffee or a glass of wine and just drink it all in. All images by Lillian and Leonard.

So Beautiful.

Fresh From the Garden

We wanted the flowers to look like someone had just been out and picked them all (a bit messy). We didn’t really have a colour scheme so there were pink, purple, blue, yellow – pretty much everything. Margaret Soudan did the flowers and she was amazing. We were not sure we had described what we wanted very well but somehow she got it absolutely perfect!

Photography beyond words…

Lillian and Leonard (Cara and Nye) were our photographers. I have no words to describe how amazing they were. Their photos are the most perfect reminder of the day and everyone who has seen them has commented on how fantastic they are.

Cake of all kinds…

I am totally addicted to cheese and so I wanted one cake to be a cheese cake. This was basically 4 wheels of cheese on top of each other and came from the Bath Fine Cheese Company. And yes, they delivered it all the way to Scotland. I ended up having 4 pieces of incredibly posh cheese on toast at the end of the night.

My sister, Sarah Kelt, made the sweet cake.View the full post.

Pale and Oh So Interesting… Part 1

I’m more than a little bit excited about this wedding. With a modern Bride totally rocking her very stylish and grown up look, it’s a total fashion fest. That, plus a pale but pretty palette and some out of this world photography by the wonderful Cara and Nye at Lillian and Leonard, and you’re all going to love it too.

We are Naomi and Arjen and our wedding was on March 27th 2010 at Crear, near Kilberry in Argyll.

Luscious Liberty

My Dress was by a designer called Jesus del Pozo bought from Liberty in London. It was only the second place I went to try on dresses and I literally could have bought every single one but when I tried this one on I knew it was the one. I wanted something swooshy and not too formal (I never wear long dresses). It was quite Grecian and incredibly comfortable – which was important to me. It was also something that I knew Arjen would love (which he did).

Keeping it Simple

I had earrings from The Earring Boutique online (cheap but beautiful). No other jewellery (my engagement and wedding rings were enough). I had bought a comb to go in my hair but on the day decided on a few Lilly of the valley and roses from my bouquet instead.

I wanted to look like me but better (not a different person, wanted my husband to recognise me)!
My hair was in a side bun and was done by Vicki from Heaven (a local hairdresser in Lochgilphead) she came to the venue and was amazing.… View the full post.
