I came across this wedding by accident on wedding planner Fiona Leahy’s website.

Soon as I saw the first picture I loved the decadent feel of this wedding reception. The first thing that caught my eye were the grapes in the centrepieces. I love the idea of fruit and flower displays. As well as grapes, the displays were made of fronds of Amaranthus (also know as love lies bleeding – what a great name!) and 4,000 roses.

Turns out these were photos from Marilyn Manson and Dita von Teese’s wedding in 2005. Its great when you see wedding reception and can clearly see the couple’s personalities shining through, which it clearly does here.

Dita von Teese’s wedding dress was an amazing Vivienne Westwood dress in royal purple silk taffeta with tri-corn hat designed by Stephen Jones.

When I’ve been getting dressed to go to a wedding, I’ve often stressed over whether its OK to wear black or not so I love this quote from Dita von Teese:

“Everybody asks me, ‘Can I wear black? I said: ‘Of course you can wear black. Whose wedding do you think you’re going to?”

Foxtrot From a Play by W.H. Auden

The soldier loves his rifle,
The scholar loves his books,
The farmer loves his horses,
The film star loves her looks.
There’s love the whole world over
Wherever you may be;
Some lose their rest for gay Mae West,
But you’re my cup of tea.

Some talk of Alexander
And some of Fred Astaire,
Some like their heroes hairy
Some like them debonair,
Some prefer a curate
And some an A.D.C.,
Some like a tough to treat’em rough,
But you’re my cup of tea.

Some are mad on Airedales
And some on Pekinese,
On tabby cats or parrots
Or guinea pigs or geese.
There are patients in asylums
Who think that they’re a tree;
I had an ant who loved a plant,
But you’re my cup of tea.

Some have sagging waistlines
And some a bulbous nose
And some a floating kidney
And some have hammer toes,
Some have tennis elbow
And some have housemaid’s knee,
And some I know have got B.O.,
But you’re my cup of tea.

The blackbird loves the earthworm,
The adder loves the sun,
The polar bear an iceberg,
The elephant a bun,
The trout enjoys the river,
The whale enjoys the sea,
And dogs love most an old lamp-post,
But you’re my cup of tea.

I came across a great British wedding photographer called Danni Beach. Her photos are beautiful to look at and they have a wonderful sense of place about them – the photos here couldn’t have been taken anywhere else but good ol’ Blighty.

I have a confession. I am addicted to wedding blogs. I haven’t come across many that are British and so I’m here to correct that with this little blog by moi.

Really this is just a way of noting down all my ideas so I hope you have as much fun browsing as I will writing!

Love from…
A winter Bride
