Friday’s Loveliness – Engagement Pictures

Afternoon! This planning a wedding business doesn’t half take up all your time! Manically busy booking our Make up artist (very good friend of the family and works for YSL – booya!), researching bands that fit within our budget for our Brighton Bash, booking the ceremony room to sign the marriage papers and I think we’ve found our photographer for Ibiza too – phew!

However on a Friday’s Loveliness note, today is all about Engagement photos.  Now me and the Boy have had a few taken with one of our close friends whose work can be found here but we didn’t really prepare for it well (errrr… I might have only told the Boy a couple of hours before the shoot – my bad!) so even though there are some gorgeous photos, we’re not quite there yet. And these beauties below are a good starting point for inspiration. I love Black and White photography – can’t you tell?!

I’m off to our very good friend’s wedding tomorrow and my beautiful bridesmaids are coming down for it – I’m wetting myself in excitement as it’s the first time in ages that we’ve been in the same room all together! I think tomorrow might be carnage (I’ve already booked our table for Sunday Brunch to cure hangovers.) The Boy is Best Man and he’s got his speech down to a T and I’m sure it’s going to hit home how long we’ve got until we’re Mr and Mrs.

Scary but loving every moment so far –  just over 7 months to go. xxxx



Friday’s Loveliness – First Dance Love

This weeks Friday’s Loveliness has a little bit of a twist today – it’s all about the “Your Song” – the First Dance Song.

I think me and The Boy have got our song and it means alot to us as they lyrics are perfect and when we first heard it as Glastonbury, it gave me goosebumps. I don’t want to reveal it now so you’re just going to have to wait!

In the meantime, here are a few of my other favourite songs that I’d love to incorporate into our day.

I love the Elvis Presley version too but this version from Fleet Foxes is pretty awesome.

Love to hear what your First Dance song choices are! xxx

Friday’s Lovelieness – Beautiful Boho Headwear

I went on a hen do last month and one of the day activities we did was a jewellery making course which was pretty fun.  Instead of making a necklace like I was told to (there’s always one!) I decided to make a boho headpiece which was a lot simpler than I thought!  Which got me thinking – what’s stopping me making my own bridal headpiece or even the headpieces for my bridesmaids?

Cue Friday’s Loveliness….

They’re all gorgeous! Where do I start?!


Busy, busy, busy….

So you may have noticed that I’ve not been around the last couple of weeks and I can only give you my most humble apologies. However I’ve been busy for a good reason! In the last two weeks I / We have:

  • Booked the Hen and Stag Villa for my gorgeous hen and stags – all 17 of us!
  • Booked our venue for the Brighton knees’ up for all those that can’t make it to Ibiza.
  • Hand drawn maps and details for our wedding invites AND written all the copy.
  • Drawn and designed my wedding dress, ordered lace samples and body mannequin in order to the Mother in Law to be to start making The Dress.
  • Bought our flights for next year.
  • Flew back our Mecca that is Ibiza and met with our lovely wedding Co-ordinator Lucy to do a taste tasting of our yummy wedding dinner. (Tapas for starters, Steak or Fish for Mains and then Wedding Cake for dessert – t’was seriously scrummy) and talk through the running order of the day. Managed to take a look at our Hen and Stag villa so we know where it is too. And then we may have spent the rest of the week sunbathing, drinking, chillaxing and catching some seriously beautiful sunsets.



Next on the to do list:

  • Once the MOH has finished designing our invites, I need to get them printed and then start making the envelopes and post them out.
  • Make a start on all the DIY projects I’ve got up my sleeve (can’t say more than that just yet!)
  • Research and book Honeymoon!
  • Research Videographers

The to-do-list is never ending but oh so very exciting.

I’ve been so busy that even my addiction with Pinterest has taken a backseat. Excuse me, must dash – I’ve got days of pinning to catch up on. xxx
