Off The Record: Fireworks, Friends and Feeling Festive

Hello you lovely lot! How has your week been? What have you been getting up to? Me & Emily have been busy little bees! We had a fantabulous time at EWE a week ago today and since then our week has got better and better! We met so many awesome suppliers at EWE and loved our little road trip down with Emily from Fishee Designs! If you missed the show then you seriously missed out! Make sure you get your little butt there next time! This week has also been particularly special for me since Andrea and her mum arriving in England! As some of you know I absolutely adore Mexico and one of my closest friends lives there, well this week she and her mum Coral came to visit us and I can’t quite believe it! I’m so used to being on a beach in a bikini with her and now we’re all wrapped up in our winter clothes together! They had never even left Mexico before so this trip is a very special one for them! Here’s what else we’ve been getting up to and loving this week…

 Celebrating bonfire night at James’ grandparents house! It’s a family tradition of theirs to all get together and watch the home firework display and huddle around the bonfire to keep warm! Then everyone goes back inside and indulges in hot jacket potatoes, chilli con carne, soup & hot dogs! We then finish off the evening with everybody taking their turn to stir the Christmas pudding! It really is such a lovely evening and makes me even more excited for the holiday festivities that will follow!

Getting dressed up as Jigsaw! I was scaring myself every time I looked in the mirror!

But how did it all begin? Back in early 2012 a wedding show like no other was borne. It tumbled, devoid of elegance, from the crazy hearts and minds of three creative (but arguably a touch batty) wedding industry suppliers. Sassy, better known as Assassynation photography; Jo the creative wizard behind the Couture Company and Rawhide Corsets and Vikki, the ethereal, floaty, fairytale inspired designer behind Liliia. Based on a desire to showcase the very best of the UK’s alternative wedding industry, they have searched high and low for some cracking, super talented and totally lovely suppliers and dubbed them the Bad Ass Mother Flockers!


Fashion Friday: Luxe Bridal

Good afternoon beauties, it’s Friday and we have another wonderful fashion Friday for you. We are super excited about attending the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza, All About EWE next weekend. With all the amazing suppliers that will be there we know we will be spoilt for choice with amazing businesses to share with you.

When it comes to dresses we are suckers for vintage and it just so happens that a very awesome vintage wedding dress company will be showcasing at All About EWE next weekend so we thought we would briefly introduce you to them today.

Over to you Shelley…

Luxe Bridal was launched in 2011. As lovers (and hoarders) of vintage pieces we realised that there was a real market for vintage wedding dresses, catering for brides to be who have a desire for something special and ultimately unique to wear on their special day.

‘The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza!’

Sunday 4th November 2012, Fazeley Studios, Birmingham

What happens when three slightly mad wedding suppliers come together? They hatch a crazy plan….that’s what!! When Sassy (Assassynation), Jo (Couture Company) and Vikki (Liliia) got nattering over a glass of wine (standard) they decided that they would put on a Wedding Extravaganza with a real mix of suppliers!

Here’s what Sassy, Jo & Vikki have to say about this awesome filled day!

“We want to put on an amazing wedding extravaganza (aka fair) that would be exciting for both the suppliers and couples alike, so we hatched a plan “A-team” style (Hannibal Smith would be proud).
