Alphabet Bags - Fab Totes

2 comments
I came across this amazing London based bag company on one of my favorite blogs 'A Beautiful Mess'. Its run by a super cute married couple Hayley and Lucas who make unique accessories, creating lovely items that are bold and definitely make a statement. There collection includes totes, coin purses, wash bags and also the fabulous wedding collection totes!

I brought one of there totes from the wedding collection and i'm so in love with it! Ive been hunting for a cute wedding themed tote and possibly gifts for my bridesmaids. This ticked all the boxes so i recommend them.



 I have since brought a few Christmas presents for girlfriends and i'm sure they are going to love them just as much as me :)

 Go take a peek on there website www.alphabetbags.com and i'm sure you'll love them too :)

Much Love Lulu xx

(I apologize for the rubbish photo above of me modelling the tote!)

Hey Lovely's!
Hope your all having a wonderful day and enjoying the autumn weather. Its my favorite season and i love getting cozy in wooly jumpers and scarfs. It hasn't been very nice today to be honest though. I love the cold but not rain! Heavy Rain at that! Hope everyone has been keeping wrapped up to stop you getting a cold.

Today is a small post that my sister Daisy has put together and i'm so happy she wanted to do a little post for us. Daisy is rather excited about being a bridesmaid and getting dressed up for a special occasion! Enjoy! (No negative feedback please-She is only 9)

October 2012-

I'm so excited for Laura and Paul's wedding it is going to be great. I am quite nervous to be a bridesmaid as i have never been one before. This will also be my first wedding i've been too! I have seen my dress and it is gorgeous. Its is cream lace with pretty flowers on the front and a bow on the back, i just love it! We have been talking about hair styles lately and i think i know how id like my hair. Looking forward to having it done on the day :)  I'm so excited for everyone to see the wedding car because its the most beautiful car i've ever seen, I cant tell you what type of car it is as its a secret!  The wedding is in June so i'm hoping its going to be a warm day. I cant wait to sing and dance with my big sister Laura,  its going to be the best summer ever!

Love Daisy xx



Only a short post but means so much to me how excited Daisy is :) Truly grateful to have an amazing family <3

Bridal Block...

Leave a Comment
Hey Everyone!
Hope your all well and having a great weekend? I feel so bad for not posting anything on here for weeks. I'm having what i call 'Bridal block' and have been typing posts that i want to do but i end up not posting. I don't know what it is and why i feel like i cant post them. I have so many ideas running through my head and a few posts in my saved file.  I'm gradually going to be posting them on here over the next few hours. I'd like to ask my readers if you can give me advice on planning out my blog posts? :)


Much love

Lulu xx

Pinterest Love

Hello Lovely's! 
Well i caved in and signed up to Pinterest a few weeks back and i have to say its my new addiction! I already have Instagram and Twitter but with this anything i see for the wedding i can just 'pin it' onto my board. It makes it a lot easier for me to build ideas together and collect inspiration. I'm rather rubbish at remembering to sit down and do mood boards. Also trying to find the time as well can be tricky. At least this way i wont forget what i've seen! I have 11 boards on my profile so far from 'Wedding', 'Bridesmaid Ideas', 'All things pastel' and 'Love'. I have quite a few things pinned so far in each category as i went a bit mad as soon as i signed up :) Do you have Pinterest? What are you usernames so i can follow?

Hope your all having a lovely weekend! xx

Engagement Shoot Part One

4 comments
Hello there! We've been so excited to show these photos from our recent 'engagement shoot' my friend Keri-Anne shot for us. We wanted to have a play about with styles/location etc but Keri-Anne did a brilliant job and we loved every second of it. I got inspired by a few shoots taken for Ruffled and also an edition of Mollie Makes which featured wedding inspirations. Me and Keri-Anne both had an idea in our heads as to what we wanted to try. I thought of the 'Love him/'Love her' the morning of the shoot as i really wanted to make it fun. Its been planned for so many months now and we were thankful that it was a sunny day! We were a bit worried it was going to rain on us but it rained the day before instead. Winner! This is the first part of our shoot with this particular location, we shall be doing another one in a few weeks time. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do :)


We'd like to thank you Keri-Anne (iwasthesea) again for doing a splendid job and cant wait for the next shoot :) xx

My favourite wedding blog

Leave a Comment
Ive always been a keen blog reader and love readings about people's lives. I always wanted to start my own blog up but never had the confidence. It wasn't until recently that i thought you know what i have nothing to lose. I wanted to document everything from the time we got engaged up to the wedding day.

Today this post is about my all time favorite wedding blog-



I first came across Ruffled was when my dear friend Katrina from Australia told me about it. I was struggling to find somewhere online to look at inspiration and read peoples experiences of planning their wedding. I'd never heard of Ruffled before and as soon as I clicked on the link I fell in love! Each and every wedding was different. I adored how they put together the features from the dress to the table settings. Ruffled is set out perfectly to find what you want. I came across so many ideas for ours. It also tells you what music they had for their first song, who designed the dress, the location of the wedding. I can't describe how amazing it truly is. I highly recommend any bride getting married to go on there. You'll end up spending hours browsing each indivisible wedding. Oh and they also do engagement shoots which is oh so beautiful too :)

Please go check it out and let me know what you think.

Have a great Bank Holiday Monday :)

Much love

P.S Today we did our engagement photo shoot and i cant wait to show all of you! Eeeeee! Should have the photos by next week. xx

My best friend. My chief bridesmaid.

Leave a Comment
As soon as myself and Paul got engaged I just knew who was going to be my chief bridesmaid! My best friend Hannah. We've been friends since school and always had so many things in common. Our aspect on life is so similar. There was a couple of years when we didn't see each other but it didn't change our friendship.

Hannah was there for me when i had my ups and downs at school. We even wrote each other letters about our feelings, who we liked and what music we loved. We still do it today and I have kept all of them in my memory box. I just know that we are going to grow old together and still be the best of friends.
A part from being one of my closest friends Hannah is one talented lady. At school she was very much into her drama and her style changed over the years. I remember us both wearing over sized jumpers of our then favorite bands and listening to Incubus in the playground on our lunch breaks. I loved staying at her house and having sleepovers in her amazing bedroom. I admired her so much growing up through our teenage years. 

The photos on this blog today are all done by Hannah and i'm so very proud of her. The photo shoot above was shot on a very cold winters day. I had no idea what i was doing so just daydreamed and did whatever came into my head. Loved it even if i was freezing to death! In the middle picture Hannah is wearing the necklace i got her for Christmas. We have matching ones and i wear it pretty much everyday. The top picture is us enjoying a rather large 99 ice cream at Abington Park. It was a hot summers day and we strolled around the park and fed the duckies.
 The last photo are my pasty white legs and one of my favorite summer dresses a couple of years ago and this was the same day as the ice cream photo. 

I really cant wait to start our adventure of organizing my bridal shower and wedding. And generally growing old together. I have so many ideas that we can do on our craft evenings. From collecting glass jars to photobooth masks! I know im going to be ok and calm leading up to my wedding with a best friend like her :)

Best Friends Forever! <3 

Not long till the weekend and i hope you all have a great one!:)

One Year to go!!

Leave a Comment
Today is 1 year until our big day! I just know that its going to fly by and I'm trying to get organized. The registry office, wedding reception and the wedding car are all booked. Everything else just needs to fall into place now.

This last week or so Ive been browsing a few blogs and getting idea's together of what we'd like. I have so many idea's in my head. I'm making mood board's to piece together what we'd both like. Keeping it all vintage. We're going to try to make as much as possible to keep the cost down but also i feel it makes it more unique and special.

My favorite blogs at the moment for getting ideas are - a beautiful mess, Etsy and Ruffled. These are amazing at finding ideas,diy, crafting and reading about others peoples weddings :)
 I adore these amazing recycled glass jars used for drinking with the cutest paper straws!
Lace fabric diy glass jars with ribbon for tea lights- Found on etsy
I adore this photo and hope to create something similar. My lovely friend Keri-Anne is going to be doing a photo shoot of me and my fiance this August. We're so very excited about this. This will give us time to feel comfortable and play about with styles. Keri-Anne is also our wedding photographer and i want her to feel relaxed doing what she does best! Her photos are incredible (see below) and i recommend you go straight to her blog after you've read ours :) http://www.iwasthesea.blogspot.co.uk/



Its nearly the weekend so i hope all of you have a lovely couple of days off
Much Love

Inspiration

2 comments
Every little girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day and one day marrying her prince charming. I found mine and cannot wait to marry the love of my life.

Since a young age i have always admired the fifties era and I wanted to make sure I had a dress that would show my style but still look classic. I love all things vintage and when i spot a tatty dress in a charity shop i take it home and put some life back into it. I don't like the huge meringue wedding dresses but my dress is very much me.

I received my dress a week or so ago and when I tried it on and looked in the mirror I didn't want to take it off! It was everything I wanted and more :) I just need to purchase my petticoat which I'll do when i go shopping in London in the next couple of months.

Here are a few photos of dresses I've come across that i adore and give me inspiration-
