I love this wedding.
Billie and HB got married in France. A stunning venue with gorgeous views and a very special ceremony. One like I’ve never seen before.
I also have serious statement necklace envy. Billie’s look is one of my favourites of the year so far. I love a quick change up for the evening do (cue said statement necklace). And the bridesmaids! A beautiful sea of ivory goddesses. Oouff. Ruddy gorgeous.
Billie The Bride: HB and I got married at my Mum and step-dad’s house in the Pyrenees in France. It was somewhere that I had spent time as a child, and had fond memories of. The views are amazing and despite us having some rain the day was mainly bright and glorious.
Subtle But Smokey
My friend is great with hair and so she id my hair on the day. I did my own make up. I wanted to keep it quite soft with a subtle but smokey eye.
My dress was from Emma Victoria Payne Bespoke. I was absolutely thrilled with it. It could be tied in two ways to give me a day and an evening look. Sort of two dresses in one! It was so fun to be able to change it up a little bit. I teamed it with a statement necklace, a matching hairpiece and some super sky high heels.
I wore a veil during the ceremony and then took it off when I changed my dress straps for the wedding breakfast to totally transform the look.… View the full post.

Some of the portraits and speeches shots of Nic and James are completely moving, in the tear-jerkingly-so sense. I suggest a box of kleenex or those fancy tissues containing moisturising ingredients that aim to prevent a look that may rival Rudolph.
These images are the perfect combination of late afternoon Spring sunshine, laughter and love…
Enjoy you gorgeous lot.
A Hint Of Vintage
We chose Eliza Claire after being excited about seeing her online portfolio of vintage style photography. When we met her we all got on well and I knew that we would easily be able to relax in front of the camera with her. The engagement shoot helped us to get to know her and get used to the camera and we have some fantastic shots of our favourite London haunts.
Eliza is great fun to work with and you really feel like she is a part of the day rather than an outsider.
We chose James’ mum Christine to create our wedding cake as she has created some amazing cakes during James childhood including an infamous Rugby scrum birthday cake, so we knew we were in good hands. The cake had four tiers in the end, the base a well preserved fruit cake. We chose lemon drizzle to tie in with our lemon yellow theme and carrot cake which is our favourite type of cake.
Christine also made us a small top tier of fruit especially for us to keep.… View the full post.
Yellow makes me happy. It reminds me of sunshine and springtime and joy, which is exactly what Nic and James’s April W-day encompasses.
Set in the beautiful Stoke Place (I am in love with this venue!) with an abundance of delicious blooms this soiree is going to bring a smile to your face this Monday afternoon.

My skyscraper four inch “Vivian” open toe heels were from Dune. They are silver beaded Art Deco style shoes which sparkle beautifully, oh and I had to have the matching bag as well!
I had three simple strand of pearl bracelets, two were from Accessorize and the third was my something borrowed from my friend Karen. My something old was my grandmother’s broach which helped to tie my stole together. I didn’t want to wear a necklace because I didn’t want it to detract from the beading detail at the top of my dress, so I bought some beautiful statement earrings online which completed the look.
I bought my dress from Ronald Joyce at Berketex in Nottingham, they have the most amazing changing rooms too. It was the twelfth dress I tried on and it instantly made me feel very emotional. After walking out of the changing room to meet the bridesmaids we were all in tears to I knew that was a good sign. I love the satin fabric the most about the dress as it is beautifully soft.… View the full post.
