Real Wedding; Helen & Vish Pt II

My Bridesmaids were given "Dark Blue, and a dress you would wear again" - I think the mixed dresses looked fabulous, and everyone got something that flatters their shape.
The boys had brown shoes, grey trousers, blue shirt, grey tie.

The Garlands and Villaku {the lamp} were such amazing quirky touches to the day, incorporating a bit of the East to a predominantly Western affair.

My parents organised an AMAZING Vintage White Jaguar for me!

Real Wedding; Helen & Vish Pt I

At last, the time has come!

We married in November last year, outside beneath an old Oak Tree, on the most beautiful day.
I didn't realise how fast the day was actually going to go!
Our Photographer Haran did a wonderful job capturing the day for us, we have received so many compliments on the photos!
David Adams, our celebrant was SO nice, and made the day so special and unique for us.

Here is the first look at our Wedding! Enjoy....

Put a Spin on it.....

I have a tiny jealous Bride living inside me, who goes all green with envy every time I see a Wedding which has elements I adore and wanted.
Today's example, a Wedding where a bride is wearing a coloured wedding dress. By coloured, I mean straying from the norm of White, Off White and Ivory!
I haven't a problem with Brides in coloured Dresses, and that just IS my problem. I get jealous. So, So jealous because they look so good!

If I had a big anniversary, I'd probably have a gathering with friends and celebrate. I may just be inclined to buy a second Wedding Dress. Teehee!
These are my coloured favourites!

One. - BEAUTIFUL Lela Rose creation, unfortunately at a 'too many dollars for me' price. But A Girl can dream. . . . . .
The watercolour print caught my eye - flashy and different without taking too much away from the idea of a Bridal Dress. It also allows you to have fun with your theme for the big day! How about bridesmaids each wearing different colours featured on the dress?

Two. - This one shoulder dress is LOVELY. I adore interesting shapes and different necklines in Wedding Dresses. This would be great for an Intimate Wedding, teamed with some sparkly gold heeled shoes to showcase those legs!

Three- Little bit Glitzy & Glam with the sequins, but also a little quirky with the blush rose colour. Not so good for Busty Brides with the ruffles on the front, but Ideal for you petite ladies out there!

Four - If you have learnt one thing about me, it is probably that I LOVE Grey. This dress is no exception! The neckline is so beautiful, and would flatter so many shapes. The shade of grey is to die for. You could go simple, or accessorise to the max!

Which is your favourite?

Have a great week, lovelies!

Inspired - Lavender and soft peach

I'm really not a girly girl but whenever I put together an inspiration board for a wedding it invariably ends up looking soft and pretty! I just can't help myself. Here is a wee colour board using my favorite peach and a little lavender.
