I’m not sure what I think about these Christian Louboutin flat shoes. I’ve never been a fan of patent leather and these seem at times garish and then quite chic.

But one things for sure, if shoes could speak these would say ‘take me on honeymoon to Paris please’.

Seven Weddings has joined Twitter! It is a kind of micro blogging where you say what you want to say or share the things you want to people in just a few strokes of the keyboard – 140 characters to be precise.

I like to use the ‘search’ option on twitter which searches through what everyone is tweeting in real time. It can make fascinating reading. Here’s what a search for ‘weddings’ came up with…

  • wedding anniversary today 3 years. At work
  • Never had a wedding or honeymoon! I TOTALLY feel left out! But you can plan a nice vacation and say it’s your honeymoon!
  • I found my missing wedding /engagement rings! hurrah!
  • I can and will find a damn dress for this wedding! May the force be with me!
  • dowry not less than 3.5K probably much more, plus wedding cost at 5 star hotel, plus furnishing a flat or a house…
  • New blog post: Was Jesus Encouraging Alocolism When He Turned Water To Wine At The Wedding At Cana?

Twitter can be a great way to have conversations with fellow brides. Come and follow me at

My favourite underwear shop, Agent Provocateur, has launched its 2009 bridal collection. Called The Brides of Ulysses, inspired by the adventures of Greek hero Ulysses.


In the Greek myth, Ulysses was sailing a vessel of betrothed virgins and had to be tied to the ship’s mast to avoid being lured away by the songs of the sirens. As with all their lingerie, the bridal collection is always naughty and very very nice.





Book your Bridal Shower which includes exclusive use of the store between 6-8pm for you and your party with champagne and canapes and a goody bag for the bride.

The Coco Chanel Suite at the Ritz Paris. Coco Chanel made the Hotel Ritz her home for 37 years. Her three room suite overlooking the Place Vendome, a famous square in the heart of Paris, is available to stay in for $4,300 per night.

What a glamorous way to spend a honeymoon!


The bathroom. Each item and piece of furniture has been researched and restored to recreate the world where the designer lived.


The dining room


If the Coco Chanel Suite doesn’t wow you, how about staying in the Ernest Hemingway or Elton John suite who also both have suites at the Ritz named after them? Choices, choices…

The 5th hotel in my search for the perfect hotel for our honeymoon in Paris.



Set in its own garden is the Hotel Particulier Montmartre a 19th-century stucco house.


The five suites are designed by contemporary artists. Fashion curator Olivier Saillard’s room ‘Poems & Hats’ is a nod to Magritte in black and white, with hats for lampshades and a clear glass wall separating the bedroom from the marble-fitted, mosaic-tiled bathroom.


‘Vitrine’ is created by sculptor Philippe Mayaux. This is a sexy room with a cabinet full of highly suggestive blown-glass objects and a large steam room.


An artist’s video shot on the premises runs on the DVD player in your room when you arrive and there are classic movies and art books to borrow from the library downstairs.
