It’s Friday. It’s Summer. And we are going to give you one hell of a beautiful garden wedding.
An abundance of beautiful blooms?
A whole bunch of colour and love?
I always knew I wanted to wear something with a vintage feel to it, so initially I bought a beautiful original 1930s dress online. I persuaded myself that the fact that it didn’t actually fit properly wasn’t a problem – I could lose weight in time for the wedding couldn’t I? It would be fine. The nearer it got to the wedding day though, the more I began to realise that, gorgeous as the dress was, it just wasn’t right.
So with a month to go, I started looking for another one! Leigh had already mentioned that he’d walked past Cocoa Couture, a wedding dress boutique in Cheltenham, and thought I might like it. So I gave them a ring. Cara, who owns the business and designs and makes all the gowns, was wonderful. Seemingly undeterred by my scarily short timescales she invited me to her shop, where I chose the fabric for the dress (including the most amazing cream antique lace) and talked through styles.
Just 2 fittings and 3 weeks later I picked up my dress.

As there was lots of detail on the dress I didn’t really need many accessories.… View the full post.
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.
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!)
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.
