This week we are in Rhode Island, United States for the September wedding of Alayna and Jay.
Alanyna and Jay’s wedding was oh so magical, with a dream like feel to their day. They had a story book theme; with the sweetest signs, pretty terrariums and fun animal masks. There was beautiful light and so much style. I especially adore Alyana’s bridal look with her wearing all vintage and her Mother’s wedding dress.
Thanks so much to M Studios for sharing their images with me via Two Bright Lights, here is what they had to say about the wedding;
“Once upon a time a wedding comes along and knocks us off our feet! Meet Jay and Alayna! Their story begins with a proposal from Jay who had a trained pelican carry the engagement ring. Yes, a real live pelican! Alayna is a talented illustrator who drew the scene for her save the date. The wedding was a vintage story book/fairy tale theme at the Glen Manor. Each table had a different terrarium as the centerpiece, picture books and candles adorned the mantles, and an incredible storybook cake was a hit with all the guests. The couple had gorgeous carved animal masks for photos. Alayna wore vintage shoes, her mother’s wedding dress and Jay’s mom’s veil. They didn’t have a florist. The bouquets were made by the two mother’s of the couple with flowers picked from the garden. Alayna did all the table settings. She made a old timey moon and banner to hang in the photo booth where there were more animal masks for the guest.”
Brides The Show is almost here, running over the 22nd and 23rd March 2014 in Battersea Park, London. And for those of you that have booked your tickets already with your WWW discount code, lets talk about the fashion shall we?
Let’s get excited about what the shows have in store…
“Reminiscent of the ultimate stylish decade this is a modern interpretation of mid-century dressing in homage to the female form. From the sexy starlet look of Bardot Loren and Monroe, to the more demure debutante of Hepburn and Kelly. Think iconic shapes and hourglass figures with nipped-in waists. The resurgence of the lingerie-like lace slip dress, a 3?4-sleeved, bateau neck sheath, strappy, dirndl-skirted sundresses in crisp broderie anglaise, a point d’esprit shirtdress with tulle petticoats – flirty, frothy and utterly feminine.”
This lunch time I have a simple yet super chic hair style tutorial to share with you. Inspired by an up do worn by Taylor Swift, this style is perfect for a bride, bridesmaids or just for a fab night out. I shall pass you over to BobbyGlam for the full instructions XOXO Lou
Taylor Swift’s hair is usually pinned up into a pretty up do or left down in natural, glossy waves, but this hairstyle is more intricate. Although it looks complicated to do, it’s actually really easy! All you need for the Taylor Swift Hair Tutorial is:
♥ A small hair elastic
♥ Bobby pins
♥ Tigi Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray
The first step is to plait a rope braid. Start by splitting the hair from the back into two sections. Pick up the top half of hair from one section and split into two, before plaiting a rope braid with these two sections. To do a rope braid, twist both sections the same way, going in a clockwise direction, and then twist them around each other in an anti-clockwise direction. Repeat until you reach the end of the sections, and tie off the rope braid with a small hair elastic. (more…)
The first thing that caught my eye when I saw this wedding was the unusual forest green and rich red colour palette, it just works.
Carly and James married in the Autumn and wanted a natural and relaxed feel to their wedding. They hosted their wedding at Newburgh Priory, Yorkshire, with a beautifully decorated marquee for their reception.
Carly looked gorgeous in a creation by the House of Mooshki, with love heart shoes and pretty up do. While James went for a dapper burgundy suit and skinny tie. I so love the green bridesmaids dresses and that striking red rose cascading bouquet which was inspired by Carly’s Nanas wedding bouquet. Perfect.
Thanks so much to the brilliant Lee Scullion for sharing his photographs today.

WWW readers Charli and Mark married back in November on their 9 year anniversary. They married at Knowle Country House, Kent and had a super personal ceremony which sounded just perfect.
I just love the earthy natural feel to their Autumnal day, with an array of earth tones. There were pretty natural blooms, pine cones, moss and so many hand made touches. Gorgeous.
Thanks so much to Kate Hennessy Photography for sharing her lovely images with us.
