Howdy. It’s half term so I have been juggling the blog with my two boys, but my wonderful mum has stepped in to look after A and keep him entertained. We head off on Friday for some much needed family time though, it’s important to find time to play too right? We have matching Halloween costumes for them at the ready hehe!
The week has been a busy one hasn’t it? Gorgeous real weddings a plenty on WWW and so many around the interwebs too. LOVE.
WWW’s Wedding of the Week
Two Artists Marry Atop Columbia Gorge = gorgeous.
You can’t go wrong if when planning a wedding you simply plan a big party and get married too, which is just how today’s couple approached their wedding.
Laura and Pete held their wedding day at One Whitehall Place in London on the 28th June 2014. Their priorities were the food, drink, music and dancing; the perfect combo to ensure guests had an awesome time.
With classic and chic styling there were simple touches and multicoloured flowers.
Thanks goes to the amazing Babb Photo for sharing her imagery today.

Welcome back this afternoon WWWers and a big hello to any new visitors. I have another glorious country wedding to share with you today… yippee :-)
With a vision of a relaxed and rural wedding WWW readers Alison and George married on the 17th May 2014 at Hellens Manor in Herefordshire. It was important to them that their wedding food and flowers were local and seasonal, an ethos which I really adore.
Talking of blooms, just wait until you see the florals in this wedding, the bouquets were bountiful and beautiful.
Alison wore a flirty polka dot tea length dress with pops of turquoise while George went for a dapper three piece suit. So very lovely.
Thanks so much to Marta May for sharing these gorgeous photographs this afternoon.

This wedding is quintessentially English. From groom Captain Danny; an officer in the Household Cavalry donning his amazing frock coat to the horse drawn carriage.
Laura Rose and Captain Danny tied the knot on Saturday 26 July 2014 in a Church ceremony followed by a wildflower meadow marquee country wedding. Laura Rose wore a stunning 1930s original vintage dress with vintage 1930s veil and pretty ruffled shoes. She had the most whimsy bouquet filled with foliage and blooms and pretty curled locks.
The marquee was decked out in pretty touches, with bunting, homegrown flowers and a naked sponge cake. YUM.
Thanks goes to Anna Morgan for sharing her wonderful imagery.

For those of you on the search for the perfect sparkle for your engagement ring finger, the dream wedding band, a gift for your future husband/wife or jewellery to accessorise your wedding day attire then look no further.
Today I have the pleasure of talking to Diamond Boutique, a beautiful boutique which sells a huge range of gorgeous fine jewellery. With near enough every cut, style and colour available you will be spoilt for choice.
Let’s get to know a little more about Diamond Boutique and read their invaluable advice on how choose an engagement ring…
Could you firstly tell www readers a little bit about you?
My name is Pritesh Vegad and I am Founder and CEO of Diamond Boutique. I graduated from Northampton University with a Masters in Business Computing and worked as a senior business consultant for major consultancy organisations over a period of 8 years. I got married to Mira in 2005 and had the opportunity to travel around the world, which we grabbed with both hands. We spent 12 months on the road travelling from Japan to Lao to New Zealand to Easter Island and more. In total we visited 23 countries. I have been married for nine years now and have two beautiful girls, Arya and Aanya, who are my world.
What do you love/dislike about your job?
I love to travel so this is one of the things I really enjoy about my work. As I personally select each and every gem I have to travel to Hong Kong, Thailand, Madagascar, Tanzania, Sri Lanka, amongst others, to source the most beautiful and rarest of gems. I am extremely passionate about coloured gemstones so having the opportunity to help and guide clients is fantastic and extremely rewarding for me.
How did you get into the wedding industry?
My passion for gemstones and jewellery was ignited when I myself was searching for an engagement ring, all the way back in 2005. I started to read and educate myself in the field of gemmology and slowly developed a real passion and desire for coloured gemstones. It was only in 2012 when I quit my day job and followed my dreams of having my own jewellery business and Diamond Boutique was officially born online.
What do you aim to achieve for your clients?
Quality, confidence and exceptional customer service.
Quality – with coloured gemstones it is all about the colour of the stone. Quality is key if you want a beautiful gemstone with excellent lustre.
Confidence – we give good old fashioned advice. Be honest and respectful of people’s budgets and requirements.
Customer service – we pride ourselves on exceptional customer service. We will go above and beyond to make our customers happy.
What style is your work?
Diamond Boutique specialises in high-grade coloured gemstone jewellery, anything which has colour we love! Our style is classic with a modern twist.
