A Geek Chic Styled Shoot

Those of you that have been reading our blog for a little while now will have seen that we have had a new sponsor with us as of late. We love a good wedding fair and I would definitely say the Vintage & Alternative wedding fair is one of the most popular with our lovely readers.

To celebrate the return of the fair on Sunday 11th May at the Harpenden Public Halls, organiser Karen Whybro devised a shoot with some of this years exhibitors to showcase not only their talents, but as a little sneak peak into what visitors of the fair can expect. Let me tell you lovelies you will be in for a treat!

Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Harry Potter

Man am I excited. My friend from Mexico arrived last night to stay for a few days and I cannot wait to show her The Forest Of Dean where we live!!! One of the stops we’re visiting will be Gloucester Cathedral not only because it’s beautiful but because some of Harry Potter was filmed there! I love how essences of Harry Potter can be found throughout the Forest Of Dean, did I also mention I went to the same school as J.K. Rowling? Yep. Pretty cool ay? Well…not as cool as the Harry Potter wedding inspiration board I’m about to unleash on you all!

But what would a Harry Potter themed wedding look like I hear you cry?! Well….prepare for horcruxes, golden snitch cake pops, broomstick favors and even a few chocolate frogs! I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good…

Sunday Sharing & Weekly Round-up: Last of the Summer Sun…

Hello lovelies on this beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon.

I am writing Sunday Sharing today from the comfort of my local pub, where I am enjoying spending the last of the summer sun in the beer garden. I usually dread the return of winter as I have a huge phobia of snow – yes thats right snow, but i have good reasons trust me. However im really looking forward to christmas this year, getting all cosy in my new little house and spending some quality time with my nearest and dearest. This year has been somewhat of a whirlwind for me, so ill be glad of the downtime.

Yesterday was a busy one for us as we made our way to the National Wedding Show in Birmingham to report on the day. The centre was buzzing with vendors and brides alike and we had an awesome day chatting with so many people, it was an exciting experience. There will be more from us on the show next week but for now, let us leave you with whats been going on in the world of weddings for another week.
