#It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…#
Specially outside my front door, as it is currently snowing…woo! Will we finally have a white Christmas this year? That would certainly be awesome indeed. Let’s see what I’ve been spending my time doing this past 7 days shall we?
♥ The wonderful Gala Darling is one of my biggest blogging inspirations. She wrote this letter to me (well to all her readers, but it’s so poignant to me and how I’m feeling right now that it might as well have been addressed to moi) to let us know how great we are. It totally made my week so I have to share it with you too. Be sure to listen to the audio version, where she reads it in her cute kiwi accent. I heart her. Thanks you Ms Darling!
♥ My SEO article was featured in the UK website, Enterprise Nation, which is all about the 5-9er – i.e people who work full time jobs but run their own business after hours – that’s me alright! Thanks to Emma for the feature
♥ The Broke Ass Bride website has had a glamorous makeover! Dana has worked stupendously hard to revamp her already stonkingly popular blog.
♥ Why fewer blog comments aren’t a bad thing
♥ Being in the UK, the new FTC announcement for sponsorship transparency doesn’t apply to me. However this article has persuaded me that writing one may be the best blogging decision I could make.
♥ We bought kittens! We have to wait until February 7thto get them because they are still only a monthand a month and a half old. I love them so much already! The one on the left is a boy and the one on the right is a girl. The are Maine Coons and will be heeeuge when they grow up (check out the girl’s daddy!) Any help with names will be greatly appreciated. Want to see more piccies?
Fon & Mike’s engagement is definitely a keeper. A beautiful couple, a sweet secluded location and more love than you can shake a stick at! Balloons, sofa’s outdoors, a picnic and oodles of tattoos. Rock n Roll personified!
Omar & Laarni’s ridiculously awesome engagement session was shot using a Mamiya RB67 Polaroid Back Camera by the genius brothers that are MangoRED. Now I may be obsessed with beautiful photography, but most technical jargon totally passes me by. Yet I thought it necessary to include that information with this post, as I’m sure, if you’re anything like me, these will I literally stop you in your tracks as they hit you sideways with their awesomeness. LE . SWOON .
A ‘typical’ engagement session this certainly is not. Axioo have gone and blown my mind again! Fun, flirty, hilarious, sexy, cool, crazy and quirky all in one shoot – you’re going to go nuts for these.
Emily looked ridiculously stylish in her Ian Stuart dress…actually called ‘Rock n Roll’ no less (!) and her custom made shrug to match by Holly Stalder. I am also loving the faux fur coat she rocked when walking to the ceremony from Per Una at Marks & Spencer.
To make their wedding truly their own, the couple bought local ale and champagne for their reception, had a friend do all their flowers and each guest was asked to choose their favourite song to have it played at the reception. Emily also asked her Mum to read a poem she wrote at the ceremony
As in a perfectly beautiful painting, where colours and tones mover together;
And make us pause for breath, because such co-existence is a display of the perfect and simple possibilities of this world.
So, in marriage, when you do not need to hold his hand, or feel her breath on your cheek
But know that love is ever present, that undeniable depth of love and care that cannot be explained or measured.
That dear Emily and John is our wish for you.
Continuing their perfect Rock n Roll day, acoustic versions of Metallica songs played as the guests entered their reception at The Great Barn.
Can you say ‘high fashion supermodels’??! Erica & Billy certainly fit the bill and I am so excited to share them with you today. Not only are their outfits awesome beyond belief (Erica’s fur coat is way too fabulous) but New York makes for the perfect edgy, backdrop to this shoot.
