Lovelies, I hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and having a fabulous weekend somewhere fabulous! We’ll be heading to my folks’ house and hoping for a cake picnic in the garden… but before I go, I wanted to introduce you to gorgeous couple Tawonga and Ed. They got engaged in 2020, and they’re planning their wedding for this summer – but first, they had a pre-wedding photoshoot with our lovely friend Hannah K Photography. I wanted to share this with you because a) it’s super romantic and these two are the absolute sweetest and b) I’m a big advocate of engagement shoots! They’re a chance to spend a little time in your wedding photographer’s company, get used to the camera and capture some special memories of your engagement.
My geography is poor – like, I could reel off a list of florists and bridal boutiques and tell you where they’re based, but ask me to point at them on a map and I’d be grabbing for Google! Is it crazy that I only know UK towns and counties by their wedding suppliers?! One of those I know best of all from wedding blogging is the lovely TDR Bridal in Halesowen, a town I’ve whizzed by on the M5 many times… literally minutes away from TDR Bridal and without ever popping in for a coffee!
Hey lovelies – I have a dreamy real wedding to share with you today. This is a destination wedding from France, with delicately pretty styling touches and light and airy photography by our lovely friend Hannah K Photography. Francine is breathtaking in a gorgeous lace dress from Love Bridal London; Jamie her perfect match in Marc Darcy tailoring. As our regular readers will know, we tend to stay in the UK for our features, so this trip to the Loire Valley for a destination wedding is an absolute (albeit virtual) treat! I hope you love it too.
What better on a blustery Monday morning than a riot of glorious colour and a beautiful wedding to share? Today we’re joining gorgeous couple Kiran and Ross who were married at Stoneleigh Abbey in Warwickshire, and who chose lovely Hannah K Photography to capture their day. Kiran’s red lengha is just stunning: beautifully embroidered and made for dancing! We love how she teamed it with two dupattas: one with stunning gold trim for the daytime, switching up to a tartan version to match Ross’s tartan for the evening do! Lovelies, I hope this stunner of a wedding brightens your day.
