The Miss Bush Bridal 2017 Lookbook


I caught some of the shots from the Miss Bush Bridal 2017 lookbook on Instagram, and was immediately hooked. Sometimes dresses are shot in a studio and so the lookbook just looks a bit static and lifeless; endless images that all end up looking the same and you can’t tell one from another.

Not so with this shoot…

These gowns are brought to life and given a context, in fact a back story, based on what actual visitors to The Chapel (where Miss Bush Bridal lives) have said, and the thoughts and inspirations these things sparked in M.D. Emma’s imagination.

And I love the ethos of the company – that it’s not just about one person, but more that it’s a team of creatives who’ve broken through the ‘professional distance’ boundary into a blurred swirl of friends and collaborators, of family and colleagues, and that this has meant the creativity has blended and risen to a different level. There’s an intimacy to these images that you only get when a team does this. And it’ll make you connect with the beautiful dresses so much more…

It’s all very well doing a post on an upcoming alternative wedding fair, but what you really want is tips on getting the most out of it, maximising your time at the event so that you get as much sorted as you can.

I’ve championed A Most Curious Wedding Fair since I started this blog, eek four years ago!! It’s more than modern; it’s ahead. And with things like The Jugglist Massive, it’s a cheerleader of strong working mums everywhere who get the seemingly impossible done while handling a million things at once. It’s an amazing team behind this…

Dance Magic, Dance

Dance Magic Dance-1045

As we say goodbye to winter, but the nights are still dark relatively early, I thought I would show you this shoot that handles the day to night with pure magic and style. If you’re having a winter wedding, I think you will definitely be ordering lots of sparkly lights after seeing this!

Mairéad from Remain in Light Photography, who brought this shoot together with Cherelle from Perfectly Planned 4 You and Eram from Boom Blooms, told me, “the inspiration for the shoot was a modern urban fairytale, with elements of dancing and magic throughout. With that in mind, we decided to go with the concept of Dance Magic, Dance (as we are all big Bowie fans!).”

Embracing Alopecia – Truly Beautiful Bald Bride


One of the key things you think about when planning your wedding is how you might wear your hair. Whether you’ll have an up-do, or go bohemian, whether you’ll have a fancy new style, or remain faithful to your everyday look.

But what if you’ve lost your hair? Perhaps because of medical treatment, stress, or in gorgeous Megan’s case as a result of Alopecia Areata. Or even if you’ve just shaved the lot off! Not many styling tips exist for those with no hair…

This shoot from photographer Sandra Chile moves in the direction of changing this, and makes a statement that you can do so much to feel fabulous on your wedding day, hair or no.

Beauty is an infinite spectrum and there are styling options for all.
