Origami Filled Retro Vintage Feel Autumn Wedding

Origami Retro Vintage Autumn Wedding http://jamesandlianne.com/

 

I’d so love to see more couple’s choosing Autumnal nuptials. Crisp sunny days, beautiful light and rich colours make for a beautiful backdrop.

WWW readers Matthew and Emma chose to marry on the 1st November 2014 in beautiful Yorkshire. There was a really unique and fresh approach to their wedding planning. The focus being on personal touches and locally sourced food.

With a honeymoon booked to Japan, origami took over the wonderful dΓ©cor, there were colourful blooms teamed with succulents and even a canal boat trip.

Emma had an amazing 1960s/retro bridal look, with an original vintage dress and some amazing Orla Kiely heels from Clarks.

Thanks so very much to James & Lianne for sharing these wonderful images with us.

On Being a Mummy of 2

Mummy

Baby wearing when W was 8 weeks old.

 

A little retrospective following on from Mother’s Day last week.

I was blessed to become a mummy back in September 2009 to little A and back in September 2014 again to baby W. Two lovely, healthy happy chappies.

With 5 years and 1 week between them it’s been so lovely to see the relationship between them grow, especially now that W is 6 months old. I can’t wait to see them play together in the garden, giggle in the back of the car and whisper secrets to one another.

The past 6 months have definitely not been easy to say the least, but they have been wonderful too. Not having any proper maternity leave and working alone is a real challenge, but I wouldn’t have it any other way either. G is an amazing support and when he is home takes over any house duties and looking after the boys. I couldn’t do it without that team work.

Stylish Modern Monochrome DIY Village Hall Wedding

Stylish Modern Monochrome Village Hall Wedding http://www.sarareeve.com/

Many regular readers know that I adore a DIY creative wedding, especially country village hall affairs. But this wedding is a little different with a modern take on the classic. Think spots, stripes and monochrome. So very stylish.

Jessica and Tim hoped were married in East Sussex, with a service at a Church which was meaningful to them. Their loved ones all contributed to their wedding, which made for a really personal feel.

Jessica looked so very glam in her sublime Belle and Bunty dress teamed with some simple yet striking accessories while Tim looked dashing in his blue suit and polka dot tie. I so love the Calla Lily bouquets, the scrumptious looking cakes and the touches of sparkle.

Thanks goes today to the fabulous Sara Reeve for sharing her photographs with us.
