Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons

Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons

Just 12 days until Christmas! How are your yuletide preparations going? Seasonal festivities take a different guise in the southern hemisphere, where Christmas falls in the balmy summer – rather than steaming hot beverages, turkey and Christmas puddings aflame with brandy, it is more iced ginger beers, BBQs and pavs! Different, but no less enjoyable, although I confess I do miss the crisp, dark evenings….Christmas lights don’t have quite the same romance in bright sunshine 🙂 This week’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons has a distinctly seasonal feel but with inspiration for brides from both sides of the planet – enjoy!

1. I love how inspiration for a wedding theme or palette can come from anywhere! And where better to find inspiration than the fashion bible, the grand doyenne (if magazines were ladies) of all things chic I am of-course talking Vogue! Jax over at Paper & Lace pulled together 10 Vogue front covers with Wedding worthy palettes, including this Christmas edition….

2. I can’t resist spectacular florals and this Bohemian Fall Bridal Session by Alyssia B Photography has it all – a flower crown, swing (yes swing, such a fab idea! adorned in flowers it made the perfect place for portraits) and this fabulous Bouquet all by Flowers By Adrien…..

3. One Fab Day’s post of Simple and Inexpensive Christmas Wedding Decor Ideas includes these delightful ways to keep your guests cosy! (we went for Winter Pimms)…….

4. I am sure in 40 years a boudoir session is something I will look back and wish I had done! And so I love Sara over at Burnett’s Boards beautiful inspiration board for a romantic boudoir shoot……

5. Take a look at this beautiful bohemian winery wedding from Matthew Morgan Photography! It has all the romance of Tuscany but was actually in sunny Cali-forn-i-a…..oh and just wait until you see the wedding dress, designed by the beatiful bride, and need I say I adore her flower crown……
