I found an advert in a wedding magazine where the model had just the hair I was looking for – semi-formal but romantic and wavy (I have naturally straight hair) and that’s what I went for. The vintage bridal headpiece that I have blogged about previously and I wasn’t sure what to do with became the decoration in my hair. We carefully unclipped the wax flowers from the wiring and entwined them into my hair.

The Victorian boots I bought were really scuffed so I scoured the internet to find London’s best cobbler (no easy task). I went to one of those recommended and he examined my boots and then told me that the leather itself had discoloured and the only way to get them white or cream was to paint over them! It seemed obscene to me to paint over 100 year old leather so I went to another cobblers to get a second opinion. It happened to be just around the corner from where I was living at the time and I’d read that they mended shoes sent to them by the major fashion houses. They took my boots promising to clean them but with no guarantee as to how they’d turn out. A nerve-tingling week later I went to collect them and hurrah they were like new!
They were one of my favourite things to wear at the wedding (and super comfortable) and I was so glad we managed to resurrect these beautiful boots.
Well its only been a couple of years since I last updated this blog…! We have moved house form city to countryside and now have a little daughter who’s about to turn one in a couple of days and is the love of our lives. I’m a bit rusty so forgive any mistakes I make but thought that people might (finally) like to see more of the details of the wedding and whether the plans I made worked out. I’ll post separate posts about different aspects of the wedding over the next few weeks.
Starting with…the dress!
I loved my dress so much, what bride doesn’t? After trying on dozens of dresses and having much fun in the process, I finally settled on Maggie Sottero ‘Harlow’. It was strapless so as I mentioned earlier in the blog some adjustments had to be made but the corset was very flattering and the beading and lace was beautiful.
