This week I had the chance to go into Harry Potter super fan geek mode as we headed off to the studio tour. It was brilliant, it isn’t far from where we live so was a super simple journey and we had a lovely day. A was in his element and it was so magical. We took lots of snaps but I wouldn’t want to ruin the mystery by sharing them with you, so here is me in Diagon Alley and tasting butter beer :-)
We also got back from Ikea with lots of frames and shelves that we put up this week. It’s lovely to make our house feel more like a home by getting some treasured images on the walls. I have been desperately crocheting in the hope that I will complete my blanket for baby finally. It’s going to be touch and go for sure though.
Ohhh and I got new specs!!! I have had my current frames for a good couple of years and haven’t found any I preferred to replace them. Well I had an appointment this week and G convinced me to take the plunge and get some new frames. I am not sure I feel too confident in them yet, it’s a big deal changing glasses when you wear them 99% of the time. But hopefully they look nice and it was a good decision. It’s nice to see a bit better anyway hehe.
Hopefully next week I can squeeze in a hair cut as I am not sure I will have much me time in the coming months. Otherwise it’s a busy week blogging and hopefully spending some quality time with A.
For now though, let me share a peek of tomorrow…

Here’s to a wonderful Sunday XOXO Lou
Sarah and Brandon married at The Arbors Events in North Carolina, which is nestled in the most beautiful countryside setting. I love the fresh pretty peach feel to their day; gorgeous attire, perfect details and so so much love.
Thanks so much to Connection Photography for sharing these beautiful photographs with us today.
The perfect way to spend a Saturday morning me thinks :-)

Afternoon lovelies. Kate is back this afternoon to keep us in her wedding planning loop. From the loveliest invitations, to the make up trial and engagement shoot, she has been super busy. Ohh and if you read on you may get a cheeky slip about a project I worked on last month ;-)) Thanks Kate XOXO Lou
Hiya, so again it has been a while since I have had the opportunity to write a bit about my bridal journey. I am currently taking a well-deserved break from the hell that is that otherwise known as the seating plan, I think I need to heed the advice of several other brides before me by grabbing a bottle of wine and taking the plunge ha, hence why I am leaving it until a more acceptable hour of the day before looking at it again.
I left you on tenterhooks last time with the promise of the big reveal of our invitations, I am pleased to announce that we had the assistance of the very lovely Karen at the original wedding tea towel www.weddingteatowels.co.uk in making our invitation dreams come true. Mr C was hesitant when I first thrust my free tea towel sample (complete with tandem bike image) upon him and may have taken a bit of a persuasion and a “fine you find something better” approach before he agreed but upon reflection he has admitted that they are pretty awesome, wahey high 5 to me. Karen was fabulous in her communication and even designed a RSVP card with menu choice and our evening invitations for us which we printed off at vista print. We had a great response to the towels, although many people have actually confided in us that they are reluctant to use them haha. Luckily we have a few spare so have doled some extras out. Also we have arranged to have one framed so that people can sign around the edge as a guest book as we aspire to having a downstairs loo one day so it will definitely have a home in the future.
I had the pleasure of being a Bridesmaid for one of my closest friends and my future sister in law in June so have gleaned a lot of Bride tips from these two experiences, I love how in this digital age the photos from the day are available so soon afterwards as I have absolutely loved reliving the moments. The sun was shining on both days so here’s hoping that we are as fortunate with the weather on our day, but if not I have purchased a giant red heart-shaped umbrella so all will not be lost and the show will go on.
Alma and Alastair married on Saturday May 3rd 2014, hosting a truly London wedding where guests walked between their three venues and enjoyed the green spaces. They held their ceremony at Blackheath Halls, where Alma walked down the aisle accompanied by a fiddle and Alma sang ‘She Moved Through the Fair’ to start the ceremony. They then moved onto The Fan Museum for afternoon tea followed by the Wine Vaults Greenwich for their party.
Alma was enchanting in her original vintage 1940s dress with an amazing shoulder cape, while Alastair donned tweed with a vintage hat. Oh so stylish.
Thanks so very much to Murray Clarke for sharing his wonderful photographs today.

I am not sure I’ve ever featured a more thoughtful couple, this bride and groom went the extra mile and thought of every little detail for their wedding.
WWW readers Philip and Victoria married on the 28th September 2013 at the beautiful Hitchin Lavender, Hertfordshire. They hand crafted their rustic feel wedding to perfection, from the genius dictionary guest book to the stationery and notebook favours. They were also lucky to have some supremely talented friends who helped to create their wedding not to mention a super gorgeous wedding party.
Victoria looked divine in lace and I love her green Converse, while Philip donned a dark navy suit. And all on a budget of £6000, amazing.
Thanks so much to the wonderful Jessica Holt Photography for sharing her images with us.
