The Calm Before the Storm Perhaps?

So last weekend I had my first wedding dress fitting, I was really nervous but thanks to my fantastic soon to be sister-in-law I am now the proud bride to be of a fantastic bespoke 50's style wedding dress of utter joy!  I wish I could post photos, but I guess somethings should be kept a secret.  There are two very valuable lessons I learnt that weekend as well: 1) I need to get a tan, good grief the dress almost disappeared against me! 2) as it turns out when a camera points in my direction I develop a double chin and a naff smile, hmmm not quite the stylish look I'm aiming for.
Back at home some exciting developments include the growing of wedding flowers from seed, not something I have tried before, but as you can see it's not going too badly!  Below are sweet peas, basil and coriander we want to include herbs in the flower arrangements to add gorgeous smells and beautiful greenery, so far so good....

We will be meeting with the venue in the next few days and will hopefully have some photos to show you, in the mean time I thought I would share some photos of a venue we were considering, the beautiful orangery below is located at Bicton Park Botanical Gardens whilst very tempting the guests would have had to stick their heads around palms and other plants and the grounds were too public.  I'm not great at being the centre of attention at the best of times, so the thought of having Joe Public rubber necking us and the guests didn't appeal too much!

Not wedding related at all but fab nonetheless, came home to find a catastrophe!  (I was going to insert some sort of egg pun here but thought better of it.)


  1. Oh I have laughed at those photos - out loud - sorry!!

    I got a call today - the fabric is ready to collect, woo hoo!!!!

  2. eeeep that is so exciting! Just need to practice a good photo face now!!
