Real Wedding: Glory & Avery

A simply peachy wedding for you today, sent all the way from Hong Kong! Glory and Avery got married on New Year's Day in a flurry of chiffon and luxury. Top of the stealworthy ideas has to be the lovely shiny Bentley - you'd definitely get to the church on time if you were travelling in that type of style! The page boys are just the cutist with their shiny shoes, and I adore Glory's gloves - soooo elegant. Also loving the bridesmaids' pearl necklaces; each one is different, do you think they might have been presents from the happy couple? Many thanks to Punam Bean for her gorgeous photos.

Real Wedding: Ellie & Dave

Gorgeous organic detailing at this spectacular urban wedding. The happy couple, Ellie and Dave took a large open space and filled it with moss, stones and wood, with orchids jostling for space alongside aged wooden lanterns, grass table tops, nests, honey jars and statues. A veritable nature wonderland! Just goes to show that even an urban wedding can feel green. Looking through the pics, my favourite spots have to be Ellie's stunning vintage engagement ring, the square tiered cake, the muslin favour bags and the sculptural vases of twigs. Truly an inspirational big day - huge thanks to the team at Our Labour of Love for capturing all the details!

Postcard Allotment

Sometimes I'm staggered by the sheer level of creativity out there in the blogosphere world. There I was, taking a quiet stroll around some of my fav blogs, when I stumbled on these totally original postcards on Oh So Beautiful Paper. Combining gift and greeting card, they're called Postcarden, and they're pop-out cards that transform into a mini living cress garden. Designed by an independent company based in London called A Studio for Design, they come in three different models, all brilliant. Which one would you pick for your wedding invitation?

Real Wedding: Lindsey & Scott

There's so many things I adore about Lindsey and Scott's big day, that I'm struggling to order them in my mind.  Lets start with the stunning lilac roses - I believe they're called Blue Moon, and they're just the most gorgeous starting-point for a truly romantic colour palette. Then the green-grey of the bridesmaids' dresses, which incidentally are cut just beautifully - no frilly flounces or bonnets here.  And then there's the bride's gown, which is the definition of elegant simplicity. I'm keen to copy everything! Many thanks, as always, to Karen Wise for her gorgeous photographs.

We ♥ Boutiques

What's better than shopping for a beautiful wedding dress? Shopping for one on your boss' time!! Okay, maybe not, but if you were to have a spare moment in your working day, check out Net-a-Porter because they've just launched their super-duper, drool-worthy, dreamy online wedding boutique. They're flagging it as the one-stop shop for the chicest wedding yet, with gowns, veils, shoes and even honeymoon outfits on sale. Definitely worth a webrowse.
