With my sister and brother :-)
Only a couple of weeks ago I gave you an update and insight on coping with the anxiety that I suffer from. I mentioned that one thing I had yet to concquer was a proper train journey.
Well… on Sunday I did it :-)
It wasn’t easy that’s for sure, with a melt down at the train station I put the fear aside and hopped onto the train to London. It’s only a half hour journey to Kings Cross and I did great.
We bundled up our boys and with the support of my fab family we headed to the Southbank winter festival. It was such a wonderful feeling seeing the London eye and hearing Big Ben. Words cannot even explain.
We soaked up the atmosphere, looked at the market stalls, giggled at street performers, had a ride on a carousel and strolled around the Tate Modern. Perfect. If I can overcome my fears, then I know any of you out there that are afraid certainly can too. Now I just need to plan the next outing into the Big Smoke :-)
You never know, you may even get to meet me out and about next year hehe!
Now for a chilled out festive Sunday with my loved ones. I hope you are warm, happy and looking forward to Christmas too :-)
Happy Sunday XOXO Lou
Elisabeth and Blake are the cutest couple. They tied the knot in North Carolina back in the summer and had a fairytale garden party. I so love the pretty pink colour scheme and dreamy romantic images. Plus I know you guys will too. Perfection.
Thanks so very much to Revival Photography for sharing their photographs today.
WWW resident real bride Amy is back. And this week it’s great to catch up on what she has been up to. I love her thoughts and decisions on her hair, make up and beauty regime too :-) Thanks Amy XOXO Lou
Hello there you lovely lot ☺ I bring you this instalment of Bride Diaries from an office which feels like it’s located somewhere in the Antarctic, seriously freezin’ hell! Autumn has well and truly set in now, bust out the hot water bottles and stock up on the hot chocolate. I personally love this time of year, I think it’s probably my favourite, what with the gorgeous colours, and not having to arm yourself with deodorant every time you leave the house – for me summer = sweaty mess (yeah I went there).
As much as I enjoy the cooler months I still get the urge for some winter sun, or rather a break away from work where sunshine is massively involved, no real requirement for winter. So when Ashley suggested a little trip to Majorca for the end of October, I was very much on board! It was very lovely indeed, sometimes all you want/need is to lay in the sunshine, letting go of all of your stresses, relaxing completely. And that is exactly what we did, literally. We were at the beach every day soaking up the glorious sun (it was only 25°c so no sweaty mess over here), eating a ridiculous amount of food, and guzzling all the wine. I feel no shame for being so lazy, it was just what we needed.
I’ve also been spending time with my momma, since moving out and up to Wakefield I don’t really have any quality mother/daughter time with her. We went to see the utterly fabulous Paolo Nutini when he came to Sheffield, he really was incredible that man is so talented, and ladies, oh so sexy! I don’t think I’ve ever referred to a man as being ‘sexy’, always seemed a bit naff and crude to me, but there really is no other word to adequately describe how easy on the eye Mr Paolo is. Sorry Ash!
Christmas is my favourite time of year and today’s couple certainly thought so too.
WWW readers Stacey and Joe tied the knot on Saturday 28 December 2013, how perfect! Ekk. They envisioned a simple and warm day with plenty of food, drink and dancing.
They kept everything low key, with pretty Gypsophila blooms, soft tea lights and brown paper stationery. There was a hint of blue too, with the boys checked suits accessorised with fun ties and the bridesmaids in teal.
Stacey looked stunning her in Justin Alexander gown with sweet T Bar shoes. Romantic and festive, it doesn’t get better than that :-)
Thanks so very much to the wonderful Mack Photography for sharing such lovely photographs today.

This afternoon’s wedding is oh so special, full of love, personal touches and fun!
I so love an old fashioned inspired ‘do’, which is exactly what WWW readers Rosie and Sean decided to have for when they married on the 5th July 2014.
With a vision of a classic vintage street party, you can just imagine how epic their homespun reception was. DIY blooms, floral bridesmaid frocks, a 1950s inspired dress perfect for twirling and festoon lights were just a few of my favourite parts of this wedding.
Thanks goes to I Love Stories Photography for providing these wonderful images.
