Chic Vintage Bride – Joan Dowden

Today’s Chic Vintage Bride is the glamorous lady solely responsible for my obsession with all things vintage, is my inspiration, my hero and quite simply the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. She wasn’t a starlet of the big screen (although with those looks I am sure she could have been) or a member of any royal family and you...

Monique Lhuillier’s Sublime Spring 2013 Bridal Collection

Whilst we may always be able to rely on Vera Wang to push the boundary for bridal design (the queen of bridal couture will forever be the first choice for daring brides), there is one designer known for her ethereally beautiful, dreamily embellished and flawlessly tailored gowns and that is Monqiue Luillier.

Vera Wang’s Beautifully Bold Spring 2013 Bridal Collection

Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons #13

I can’t believe it’s Easter already! It has really creeped up on me and taken me by surprise this year. I just can not get used to celebrating Easter in Autumn, it is even starnger than Christmas in Summer! Now it’s here though I am so glad as I have a long weekend away with my gorgeous...

A Dreamy Daylesford Lavender Farm Wedding

One of the best things about doing CVB (apart from looking at endless beautiful wedding dresses) is sharing, all be it in a very small way, in one of the happiest days of a couple’s lives. Poring over images of the perfectly captured emotions of the day – the nerves, excitement, relief!, smiles, tears, joy, cheers, never fails to...
