I need to apologise for the lack of posts today. I have had a mortifyingly long, tiring and busy day (just to give you an idea, I left my house at 6.45am this morning and have just got back now, at 10.10pm – granted the last 3 hours of that was a lengthy and gossipy dinner with a friend, but I still count it an ‘on the go’ and therefore unable to post.)
In my absence why now take this opportunity to peruse or reacquaint yourself with some of the old posts..there are some great weddings that I posted ages ago which, if you haven’t seen,certainly deserve a look. At the bottom this main page is a search box, just type in what you fancy seeing and hopefully some wedding joy will pop up – if not have a clicky on the tag cloud.
I have some great stuff to share, so hopefully I will be back on form tomorrow. Now for the obligatory image, plus a little taster of what’s to come tomorrow…

Ever since going to Japan on our honeymoon, myself and Gareth have been obsessed with all things Oriental. Whilst Hello Kitty, Sake and Sushi are obviously awesome, I similarly clearly have a soft spot for weddings from the Far East. The Chinese and Japanese are just so photogenic! Especially this dude – check out his awesome trainers, geeky glasses and bowtie combo – cute!
This portraits by Kellie Kano are simply stunning. Don’t you just love that sun, lens flare thing? (I’m sure there is an official term for this!) It really makes all the sparkles on the Bride’s dress pop!

Quite apart from the fact that these images are flippin’ gorgeous, I am all about this Bride’s head wear and her blue necklace & earring combo. Uber Stylish

I am going to give you a terrible example of how to wedding plan right now. When we were choosing our photographers, we didn’t do what all the magazines tell you to and meet with as many photographers as possible to decide who suits us best. I found English Rose Photography, we met them and we booked them… We knew as soon as we saw their gorgeous photographs that they were who we wanted, and as soon as we met them we knew they were perfect for our wedding.
The reason I’m telling you this is because like English Rose, Linda Chaja uses film in her camera instead of a memory card. Now, the fact that John & Jill of English Rose used film wasn’t the thing that sold them to us – it was their style, their personalities and their love of weddings that did it…however looking back I think its really nice to have ‘real’ photographs, not just a digital image on a screen, to remember our wedding. Sure, I know you can print off digital images just as you can with film..but think of it like this – why would anyone choose to use a Polaroid camera? Exactly, there’s no logical reason..it’s simply because Polaroid’s rock.
But aaaaanyway, I digress…what I actually wanted to say (and could have said in literally one sentence) was that Linda Chaja uses film…and I like it.

Paisley ties are so sexy (no, honestly I really love them!)
