The Bride Diaries
The Bride Diaries. Introducing Bride to Be Jess
24.10.2014

It’s F-f-f-friday!! Yippee. Before you head out of the office for a weekend of fun plans, I have our last blogging real bride to introduce to you :-)

Bride to be Jess is set to marry her beau Robbie in June and has a stonker of a day planned. I am so excited to hear her diary entries as the months go by. Be sure to read on to hear their love story and wedding theme… XOXO Lou

 

Real Bride

 

WWW readers what an absolute pleasure to have been selected by the lovely Louise to discuss my wedding plans, ideas, disasters and all! I can’t wait! My grammar is far from good (apologies in advance!) but ideas are literally bursting, so I look forward to sharing with you on the journey to the big day, 13th June 2015 (10 months and counting)

 

About me and the Groom to be, in November I will have known Robbie for 12 years! (See classic prom picture) We live in London, I work for a well known yellow department store on Oxford Street, doing visual displays in and around the store, generally making things pretty and sparkly. Robbie works for some well-known booze brands, selling cocktails to the masses in and around central London. If anything from my monthly updates I can promise ever changing decorating ideas and many a cocktail concoction! Perfect combination!

 

Real Bride

 

I hate mushy romance, but need to accept in telling you how we met that we probably sound like the quintessential Joey and Dawson, right off the creek! We met on the dance floor of the Halloween school disco, ‘time stopped and the crowds parted as we locked eyes’ – not quite! Robbie was dared to ‘pull’ a young unsuspecting girl from the year below and that lucky lady was me! Fast-forward to December 2013, Robbie nervously walking me round our childhood country park trying desperately to find the lake where we’d had many heartbreaking teenage moments. When we finally got to the lake and shook off the unsuspecting dog walker, he dropped to one knee right in mud. You’ll see from pictures; Rob’s utter fear, as this picture was pre-asking and then said muddy knee. Not a hint of cringe, just some mud and a bobby-dazzler of a ring! (more…)

Picnic & Pride and Predjudice Inspired Countryside Fete Game Filled Wedding
24.10.2014

Picnic Countryside Fete Wedding http://www.daffodilwaves.co.uk/

 

I just love a wedding where the bride and groom focus on their guests experience. WWW readers Lisa and Louis, who married on the 9th August 2014 at The House Meadow, had a wedding filled with fun and games. They took a fete/sports day feel to the max with welly wanging, space hopper jousting, hula hooping, an egg and spoon race, cake bake off and tug of war. Brilliant.

They also love picnics and served a picnic style meal, which looked scrumptious. Their homemade décor was primarily inspired by Pride and Predjudice and they even headed to the Jane Austen museum on their honeymoon.

Lisa was simply radiant in her Ellis gown, perfectly wavy hair, Irregular Choice shoes and sweet veil. Oh so lovely.

Thanks goes to the wonderful Daffodil Waves for providing the imagery today.

Quirky Stylish Homespun Barn Wedding
23.10.2014

Quirky Stylish Barn Wedding http://www.mikeandtom.co.uk/

 

A good afternoon to you :-) I am over the moon to be back today sharing another loved up happy couple.

James and Sam were married on Easter Sunday; 20th April 2014 at their family church followed by a reception at Cubley Hall, Sheffield. They hoped for a relaxed and personal wedding day. Their wedding was a real team effort, with family and friends all contributing their talents; from Sam’s amazing homemade dress to the home baked cakes and crafty liberty print ties.

I so love the utterly delicious style throughout this wedding, complete with stunning attire, Sam’s amazing beehive hair style and the sweet touches.

Thanks so much to Mike and Tom for sharing their incredible photographs today.

Non Traditional Informal BBQ Beach Wedding
23.10.2014

Informal Beach Wedding http://www.juliaandyou.com/

 

 

Tanya and Jamie chose to marry on the 1st November 2013 at the stunning Tunnels Beaches in Devon. They wanted an informal wedding with a BBQ, which was all about spending time with their loved ones.

They scrapped the planned speeches, favours and table plan, giving their guests a really relaxed atmosphere. Music was really important to them, with a personal play list and friends and family performing at the reception.

They also incorporated many personal and meaningful touches too, including a karaoke evening on the Saturday evening.

Tanya donned a gorgeous Paloma Blanca gown with Ivory & Co accessories and a fur shurg, while Jamie looked dapper in a Next three piece suit. Amazing.

Thanks so much to the wonderful Julia and You for sharing her imagery today.
