The weekend is here! How are you all? I am very well and I have...
It’s here! Happy Weekend to you all! How are you all today? I can honestly say that winter is here, it’s been rather chilly, icy and snowy this week! I am enjoying seeing all the shops starting to decorate their shop windows with Christmas Items. They all look so festive!
Today we are back with my favourite feature Diary of a Boho Bride and today we welcome back Scott and Molly to the blog. Last time they chatted all about Spending or Saving and today they are on the blog chatting all Flowers and Pinterest.
My poor decision making skills have been tested once again this week as it was time to meet with the florist and choose the flowers. This is something that Scott has very little opinion on and so the decision (and therefore the burden of whether they are right or not!) is down to me.
The meeting with the florist was looming so I did some research in the only way I knew how – Pinterest.
Pinterest has been the base of all wedding research to date as I’m sure it is with most of you, but when it came to the flowers (and actually come to think of it, the dress) I found it made things harder rather than easier.
Happy Friday everyone, am I glad it’s the weekend! We have been an ill household all week, first Nik then Dexter and now me, I’m hoping that maybe a glass of wine or two later on this evening (for medicinal purposes only of course) will help shift it! If not then there is always the Christmas Sherry! To end the week I have this beautifully chic and modern Lithuanian wedding to share with you that has been sent into me by Diana Zak Photography. It’s a very elegant affair with a stunning couple. I am just loving that dessert table and Aiste’s eye make up. Have a good Friday everyone!
Aiste and Darius were married on 5th June 2015 at St.Nicholas Church in Vilnius, Lithuania ‘This church felt really cozy and beautiful. We had 45 guests in total and we started to plan our wedding 9 months before the wedding day.
This aftenoon we have a real treat for you, with these gorgeous, dreamy images. The shoot is an anniversary shoot, so a real couple with real ideas, brought to you by Aizhan who is a San Francisco Wedding Photographer.
I think it’s great to have an anniversary shoot. With all the pressure and nerves on a wedding day an anniversary shoot – especially an intimate shoot can help you relax and have fun and get some really dreamy images just like this one.
Today we have a rather elegant wedding for you, a pure Luxe affair with sequins, gorgeous table settings, beautiful flowers and the most stunning venue, Alrewas Hayes in Staffordshire. A beautiful day from beginning to end, with a lovely air of sophistication and a subtle mix of Boho magic. Neil Jackson Photographic has captured the day perfectly with soft dreamy images and a contemporary eye. I know you are going to love it.
Jacqui and Paul were married on 13th June 2015 at Alrewas Hayes in Staffordshire. ‘We loved Alrewas Hayes manor house with its period features yet contemporary feel. They also provided converted barns for the accommodation which made us feel at home, as we live in a barn conversion ourselves. We had 125 guests in total and it took us between nine months to one year to arrange our wedding.’
With all the planning and preparing for your wedding day it’s easy to forget about the most important thing….YOU! making sure you look and feel your best and are totally relaxed is one of the most important things to think about when planning your wedding. That may sound a bit selfish, but it’s your day, so you need to make sure you take time out of the planning to focus on making sure you look your best. To offer some advice and to make sure all hair and beauty bases are covered I have invited our resident bridal beauty expert, Jenn Edwards onto the blog to give you some expert advice.
Do – Invest money in securing a professional freelance hair stylist and Makeup artist that will travel to you on the day. Even if you’ve got your desired look perfected yourself and are confident in your own ability and the longevity of your application, things can go wrong when under pressure. Most brides feel a little nervous or overwhelmed on the morning of their wedding day and the last thing you want to be worrying about is the symmetry of your winged eyeliner.
There’s nothing better that slobbing around in your special wedding day dressing gown and slippers, enjoying a glass of fizz with loved ones, without the stress of traffic jams, parking, and the general public, so consider this before you book a salon or department store makeup counter.
Do – Spend time researching before you book a hair and/or makeup professional. Check out their website portfolio, testimonials/reviews, and stalk their Facebook page, instagram, and pinterest boards. Remember; you get what you pay for. A pro hair stylist or MUA’s rates will reflect what they’re offering in terms of, what’s in their kit and, their experience and expertise. If you’re offered ‘all in’ for fifty quid – run!
Don’t – Leave booking until the last-minute. The good ones get booked up to two years in advance.
