Real Pink & Sparkle Wedding: Lialah & Daniel

Sparkly shoes, pink peonies, bridesmaids in jewel-coloured dresses and giant balloons - do weddings get better than this? This shabby-chic wedding has got me completely loved up with couple Lialah and Daniel's style. Just check out Lialeh's lace tights and sparkle brogues - I love a bride who chooses comfort over sky-high heels. Other stealworthy wedding details include the succulents in the bridesmaids' bouquets by Garden District Weddings, Lialeh's hennaed hands {a nod to her heritage}, her Colette Dinnigan wedding gown and her wavy ponytail wedding hairstyle. Daniel looks great in his smart three-piece suit and more masculine berry buttonhole. Beautiful pictures published with thanks the team at Simply Bloom Photography - there's more vintage wedding fabulousness coming in Part 2 of this wedding, including balloons!

Before the Big Day Shoot with Caught the Light

Continuing the balloon theme for today, the moment has finally arrived for me to show off the pictures from the fun shoot I had with Caught the Light a few weeks ago. I needed some fun publicity shots to encourage more media types to use me as a wedding expert, and the lovely Chloé from Caught the Light took our wedding photographs, so it made sense for me to call her again! We had the most fabulous time running around Notting Hill Gate, dodging rain showers, standing on roundabouts, eating Hummingbird Bakery cupcakes, and trying to avoid a very keen amateur photographer. It was SUCH fun, and as you can see from the pics, a very large bunch of balloons played quite a large part! Here are just a few of the fabulous pictures Chloé took, more coming soon on my Facebook page. P.S. Wouldn't the balloons make the best photo-prop for an engagement shoot?

When Wedding Balloons Get Special

If you follow me on Facebook, you might have spotted my slight, okay extreme obsession with balloons at weddings. I've even created an entire Pinterest board to their fabulousness. So you can only imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon these incredible balloons by Bonbon Balloons who are based in North London. Talk about taking the idea of a balloon and running with it! Most of all I'm loving the balloon ribbons or decorative strings - I reckon you could take some pretty bog-standard wedding helium balloons and make them special without too much DIY effort. Or you could just buy them from Bonbon and send them as gifts, or as the ultimate wedding invitations!

Before the Big Day Wedding Theme: English Tea Party

If you're a regular visitor to Before the Big Day, then you might have heard that I'm having two weddings. Yup, double the stress, double the fun! It's all down to not being able to get legally married in France, plus our grannies and granddads not wanting to make the journey all the way out there. We considered secretly heading down to the registry office, but as a wedding blogger, I felt it was almost my responsibility to have a proper themed, detail-filled wedding. So while in Provence we're going for a Secret Garden wedding theme, and in London, we've picked an English Tea Party theme. I say we, but we all know that The Boy has had very little input {I've tried, but not a flicker of interest}. The London wedding is SOON. Like 3 weeks away, on 5th May.  Anyway, this is all a huge preamble to me showing off my latest, gorgeous English Tea Party wedding accessories. What do you think?

P.S. If you're not a regular reader of Before the Big Day, and you're a newbie to wedding blogs, welcome!
