Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons

By golly, if it isn’t the start of December on Sunday. Which surely means time to decorate – the 1st of December isn’t too early is it? Mr E hates having Christmas thrust upon him, but I always feel the holiday season goes so quickly if you blink you miss it, and I want to revel and make...

Aisle Style – 20 Gorgeous (and DIY-able) Drapes

I think it is fair to say that in all of our excitement Mr E and I somewhat overlooked our ceremony room and aisle decor. I can’t say it is a regret, because there is nothing about our day that I regret; however if I had the chance again I might try to look at...

Spring Garden – Inspiration for an Emerald & Rose Pink Wedding

Morning lovelies, how was your weekend? Mine was tremendously exciting (for those who don’t follow CVB on Facebook, here’s why! :)) Aside from dreaming of that little fella, I have mostly spent the weekend feeling all inspired by the beautiful roses in our cottage garden. They run the whole way along the front, just outside...

Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons

After last weeks mish mash of posts due to technical issues (some of which still aren’t resolved – in fact, should any hosting sites, blog designers or bloggers are reading this and have any advice do please let me know, because it is starting to be hard not to despair!) normal Snippets, Whsipers & Ribbons service resumes...

A Celebration of Grooms and their Mos for Movember

For the last 3 weeks Mr E has been attempting, as he does each year, to grow an enviable mo – he is no Rhett Butler but for a man who freely admits his hair sprouting is random at best, he isn’t doing badly! So today’s post is dedicated to Mr E’s mo and every mo...

Monique Lhuillier’s Bliss Collection at Paperswan Bride

It has always felt a little unfair that Kiwi brides-to-be have to travel across the ditch or even further to sample the delights of designer bridal fashion. Well, no longer is that the case thanks to Wellington’s chic little bridal boutique Paperswan Bride (if you need a memory jog of just how chic this boutique is, take a look here…..heavenly!) who have...

‘Oh Lovely Lace’ Bridal Collection from Rose & Delilah

It hardly seems possible that it has been almost 6 months since the wonderful Jessica Fontaine launched her first collection under the fabulous new label Rose & Delilah and even more hard to believe that she has already managed to design and create a beautiful second collection which she has so aptly named ‘Oh Lovely Lace’…….

Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons

Wow hasn’t the first week of November just gone in a flash?? This week I started, perhaps a little prematurely, my countdown to Christmas by opening a bottle of my favourite sherry (no, I am not a nanna, just born in the wrong era) And now I am wondering how long before I can put up my Christmas decorations and pull out my...

Johanna Johnson’s Spring/Summer 2014 ‘Muse’ Collection

Thanks to the much anticipated release of Baz Luhrman’s Great Gatsby on the big screen we have seen a return to favour for 1920′s silhouettes and everything Art Deco throughout 2013 (and long may it continue!) But Art Deco isn’t just a trend for Johanna Johnson, it is in her DNA, the designer never strays from this most inspiring era and few do Deco better...
