So my iPhone wedding countdown is finally down double figures…74 days to go!! And, with only 10 weekends left until our big day, John and I have decided that we need to get our act together and crack on with all those jobs we’ve been putting off. I thought I’d give you guys a little roundup of the things we’ve been up to in the past couple of weeks.
Our invites have been posted at last! They were a labor of love and took me ages to design and put together – who knew that tying string would take so long!! We’ve had some lovely comments from our guests though, which makes all the hard work worthwhile. It’s so exciting to receive the RSVP’s through the post each day too – they’re like little presents!
Today is going to be all about Wendy and Michael, beginning with their amazing engagement shoot, and ending with their wedding later on today.
Wendy and Michael have a long distance relationship and hadn’t seen each other for 6 months prior, until the week of their engagement shoot. They headed to the urban backdrop of Southbank, London for these intimate, quirky images.
Thanks so much to the amazing Miki Photography for sharing his imagery with us today.
Hey there lovelies. How is this week treating you so far? Did you have a lovely weekend? I went on my future sister in law’s hen do, which was so fun. I will fill you in on the fun and games on Sunday.

WWW’s Wedding of the Week:
Virginia Handmade Wedding… modern & so fun
Music has to be one of the most important elements of your wedding day, setting a tone, creating atmosphere and trapping memories into a tune forever.
Choosing songs for your wedding is incredibly personal, but i wanted to share some ideas to get your musical creative juices flowing. I have listed 99 real wedding first dance song choices by WWW couples. All different; in rhythm and style.
Your first dance could be formal, or casual, slow and romantic or fun and energetic. You could have your first dance alone or invite your guests to join in. You could even have more than 1 song. There really are no rules.
Simply click on the wedding link next to the song to see the couple’s wedding and how they chose their wedding music in their wedding report. Ohh and please do leave your first dance plans in the comment bow below or if you are already married your first dance song choice.

Emily and Budr tied the knot in April at Islington Town Hall followed by a barge trip to the London Canal Museum for their reception.
Emily wore a beautiful vintage 1950s wedding dress with her fab glasses and and antique lace cape. Budr chose a dashing pale blue Burberry suit, wow they look gorgeous!
I love the blue mismatched bridesmaids dresses, the Spring blooms and the Sudanese drum precession… amazing.
Thanks so much to the wonderful Marianne Chua for sharing her photographs with us today.
“Bud and Emily were a very cool couple, we met for our consultation 3 days before their wedding and they were unbelievably chilled about their planning! It was a really wonderful wedding, where the importance was so obviously about friends and family and having an awesome time. The couple were such nice people and clearly very loved by all those surrounding them. All in all, I was really chuffed to be able to shoot their wedding and capture their relaxed and fun loving spirit (not to mention their super cute baby girl!)”
