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.
Wow, what an amazing day it was – everything I had hoped it would be and more.
My husband and I (hehe!) are back from our honeymoon in Paris and now in the process of moving to our new home. In fact we’ve been so busy we haven’t even had time to look at the wedding photos yet! But we were sent this one so I thought I’d post it with more to come and details of the wedding once we’ve unpacked our boxes!
Hope all of you who are planning your own weddings are doing well x
As the wedding looms closer these posts get more infrequent! Today’s my last day at work till after the honeymoon and I can’t wait to get into wedding mode!
Love this song and this amazing album. This would make a perfect first dance song.
We’ve bought my fiancé’s ring!
We went ring hunting in Hatton Garden a street in London full of jewellery shops. I wasn’t prepared for how many there were (too much choice!) and how expensive they’d be! The key to buying jewellery there is not to be afraid to haggle. We knocked a third off the price of the ring we bought.
Bit of a random picture taken with my mums phone when I wasn’t expecting it, but it shows how we adapted the side of front of the dress. If you have read my earlier posts here and here, you’ll know I was worried about an over abundance of boobage. No longer! The clever spaghetti straps pull the dress up and give more support but are made pretty and soft with lots of tulle to make a cap sleeve. We added ribbon to the top of the dress for more coverage and used the same colour satin that is under the bust of my dress so it looks as if it were mean to be there.
Haven’t put any other photos here as don’t want to give it ALL away (hehe!) but am so incredibly happy with my dress and all the alternations mean its beyond what I had imagined.
So don’t lose hope if your dress needs some tweeking! It’ll all work out in the end promise!
