Pink Shoes

I have been a stranger, I know. It’s always busy with me because us mamas are crazy busy, fact. So, I have decided to do this little roundup post monthly for a while. But do not despair, it has a new format, hurray! I’m a visual being, and I really respond to seeing pretty pictures rather than endless lists of things that make my eyes swim, so I’ve put all the links to the weddings, DIY, fashion, and the food and drink into thumbnail pictures so you can see what fabulousness you’re heading off when you click. If you hover over the picture, it’ll give you a description of what it is, and I’ve popped the credits to the photographers at the foot of the post (and these will obviously also be listed when you get to your click’s destination), so that you’ll know who you want to book for your own wedding!!

The other exciting piece of news is that I’ll be opening a shop, not only on the blog, but also in real life when I’m exhibiting at wedding fairs. I’ve been a little bit addicted to eBay of late (and who wouldn’t be when you win such beauties as those pink shoes at the top of the post), buying bits to use in styled shoots and for the upcoming Way Out Wedding magazine. Now this is all grand, but where to store all the gorgeous wedding attire that arrives through the post? Not in this wee abode, that’s for sure! Mr B. is looking nervously at the growing piles of tulle and lace, ever expanding, a bit like that scene in Akira, but obviously nicer and less fleshy. So, I came up with the idea of selling it on to you guys! I’ll be thrifting and sourcing not only hot bridal gowns, but also grooms’ stuff and bridesmaids’ dresses, and even things for guests. You’re all invited to the treasure trove of amazing, one-off clothes! There’ll be a dedicated lookbook and everything. Oh me oh my, I am stupidly excited!! I used to shop in charity shops like a boss, but now I do most of that online, and here is a way to pass on the love. To be continued!!
