Today we are talking Honeymoons. OK lest face it, it’s been a pretty rubbish year...
So the day has come AT LAST when we can all finally reveal to you the results of our Epic ‘Big Fat Wedding Bloggers Photo Shoot’ we all revealed our sneak peak – behind the scenesshots last week, but the final pictures are truly stunning!!
I was lucky enough to be asked by Kat the pink haired lovely from Rock N Roll Bride along with Annabel Beeforth – Love My Dress, Alexis Cuddyre – OMG I’m Getting Married, Charley Beard – London Bride and Amma Adjubi-Archibald – Beyond Beyond if we wanted to get involved in a UK Bloggers photo shoot………well I didn’t need much persuasion (in fact I didn’t need any persuasion) I think I may even have cried when she asked me!! BUT we weren’t aloud to tell anyone…..which for anyone who knows me will understand that this was near impossible!!
Kat told us her reasonings behind the shoot:
‘My inspiration for this shoot came from the fact that I had seen a lot of big brands in The States using fashion bloggers to model for and promote their brands. I loved the idea and thought it could really work in the wedding market. After all, wedding blogs are the new wedding magazine right?! I approached Rachel at Wimbledon-based Luella’s Boudoir if she’d be up for letting us run wild in her shop and thankfully she loved the idea!’
So I asked Annabel of Love my Dress (vintage bride), Charley of London Bride (quirky, British, cute bride), Kelly of Boho Weddings and Events (Boho bride), Amma of Beyond Beyond (modern bride) and Alexis of OMG I’m Getting Married (bridesmaid – Alexis is getting married this year and didn’t want to be seen as a bride just yet!) if they’d like to come play dress up…and guess what? They all said yes!
So once we had all agreed Kat then got to work pulling what can only be described as the cream of the wedding industry together to help, photograph, style, and generally make us wedding bloggers look God damn gorgeous!
I have to say when I found out who was involved I nearly wet myslef!!

The day it self was amazing, I’m not just saying this but everyone got on SO well, it was fantastic to have so many truly lovely and hugely talented people in one building at the same time, I really did feel a little star struck and had to pinch myself to actually believe that I was part of it!
I felt like a movie star all day, in such a beautiful shop, with Kaz working her magic on my face, and Sev giving me the most amazing hair extensions I couldn’t believe what he did with my shoulder length hair, my wish for long flowing hair came true…..and for that I am truly grateful!!! The amazing Kate styling me, while Alison dropped flowers at my feet…..WOW how can anyone say that wasn’t a magical day. BUT I think the most amazing part of all was having Lisa take my photos, how totally awesome is she by the way! a true genius!! I can’t tell you how happy I am with the final pictures!
