Being a fashion designer in Brasil, Fernanda and made her own wedding dress/ She also hand stitched the one’s her bridesmaid’s wore too. Her work is inspired by Japanese culture so that, and her architect husband’s love of clean lines, influenced the theme of the wedding.
“Rodrigo came up with the whole architectural design of their venue, Fazenda Lageado“, wrote wedding photographer Marília. “He was responsible for creating specific places for the ceremony and the reception (they actually had a whole deck and set of stairs built for their ceremony), as well as designing and picking out materials and furniture used. They wanted everybody to appreciate the natural beauty of the place, so all of their décor was very minimalistic and their dance floor was under a big beautiful tree.”

I get a lot of emails from readers asking for wedding planning advice and recommendations. My inbox bulges with them! Rather than replying to them all one by one, I’ve decided to try something new… and a little bit scary!
On Sunday 29nd June at 4pm GMT I’l be hosting a LIVE online Q&A session where I’ll try my darnedest to help you navigate the tricky world of wedding planning! Whether you need some supplier recommendations, ideas on where to find the most amazing sparkly shoes, help resolving a family drama or just some feedback on your fabulous theme idea, I’m your gal!
No question is too big or too small, and even if you don’t have any specific things you want to ask me, I hope it’ll be a fun way to break up an otherwise boring Sunday afternoon.
To RSVP to the event simply visit my page on Google+. You can also submit your questions ahead of time by hitting the Q&A button, or you can ask them live as we go along. I’ll be with you for about an hour, and I’ll try and fit in as many questions as physically possible in that time. Eeeek!
Wearing a bespoke black wedding dress, Iron Fist shoes and rocking her fuchsia tresses with aplomb, Jude married Will at Bruisyard Hall in October. They booked their country house venue for whole weekend and threw the party in the middle! The celebration was centred around the couple and their love of alternative music. They wanted the feel of a rock gig for their wedding and for all their guests to have a blast.
“We love going to gigs so getting an amazing band was a huge priority to give us the rock gig feel we wanted for the evening”, explained the bride. “Our tables were named after bands we’ve seen live together and each guest had different song lyrics from their table’s band inside their name place card. And we absolutely had to have cocktails after the ceremony as we’re huge cocktail enthusiasts!”
It’s so good to be home! Of course I’ve come back to a messy house, a terrifyingly long to do list, and a huge pile of dirty laundry, but it feels GOOD. My trip to Canada was amazing, we had a blast, but is sure is nice to be back in familiar surroundings. AND THOSE KITTIES OF MINE, oh I swear they got even more gorgeous while I was away.
Before we move on I just have to show you the silliness that we got up to in Vancouver and Calgary. From games of Jenga over dinner, to dancing on the rainbow crosswalk and making new doggie best friends, Canada sure did show us a damn good time.
Aww! I always miss Gala and Shauna so much when we’re ripped apart. I don’t have very long to wait to see them again though because our next Blogcademy workshops are in Europe! We’re doing two classes in London in July, one in Berlin and another in Amsterdam! AND, don’t forget, we have our mixer event in London on July 24th. I’d love to see you there!
Wait a sec, still have some more to share with you (goodness, it never ends!) I’ll be at BritMums this weekend speaking about working with Etsy. Collaborating with them is something I’ve only recently started to do, but it’s been going so well. I’ll be speaking about exactly what it entails, sharing how it’s increased my income and letting you in on some ways that you can do the same. My slot is on Saturday at 11.30am.
If you’re not a mummy blogger and Britmums doesn’t appeal to you (yes, I find it weirdly ironic that I’ve been asked to speak there too!), then I’m also going to be on the panel at the Cosmopolitan Superblogger Masterclass on Monday June 23rd. Tickets are just £30 and a little birdy tells me there are a few still available. I spoke at the Masterclass last year too and it was one of my 2013 highlights. It’s such a fun event and I can’t wait to do it again!
OK, (finally) on to the real reason you’re here – Thursday Treats yo!
