Bridal Necklace

Not the best photographs in the world but a few peeks of the bridal necklace I’ve made for my best friends wedding which is coming up VERY soon! It’s a classic pearl strand made using South Sea 8mm pearls & 3.5mm freshwater seed pearls strung onto stainless steel flex-rite nylon coated wire… & no, I didn’t make the clasp! (Maybe one day I’ll be able to do that too…)

On the wedding day I’ll make sure I get some shots of the beautiful Claire in her wedding gift 🙂

Wedding Wednesday…

No matter what type of wedding you’re planning… large or small, traditional or not, at home or abroad, you’ve still got to pay for it! I remember reading that the average wedding in the UK costs around £15k although it could be more than that now. This post over on Offbeat Bride made me laugh but it’s a pretty good money-saving idea!

Wedding Wednesday…

After the wedding at the weekend & with my best friends wedding nuptials coming up in September I’m quite into all things wedding right now…

How awesome is this Americana wedding bouquet?! Made by RBK Creations.

These lovely images I found here. I guess todays blog post is all about flowers!

& these were found here… lovely wedding blogs all full of gorgeous inspiration. 

Beautiful handmade bouquets found on Etsy here & here. I love any arrangement by Princess Lasertron

Ed & Holly’s wedding

On Saturday two of Drummer Boy’s best friends, Ed & Holly, got married…

The place settings were a thoughtful touch, they raided Facebook for pictures of everyone & clipped them to wine glasses… some of the pics were pretty hilarious! We also had stick-on moustaches at every seat…

I got my dress on sale in Debenhams, it’s a John Rocha down to £30 in the summer sale! My shoes were also on sale (Autograph at Marks & Spencers) & my earrings I made myself. We had such an amazing day… the meal was lovely – roast lamb with dauphinoise potatoes followed by chocolate cake & strawberries & cream.. scrumptious! It really was so lovely & we enjoyed ourselves very very much! xoxox

PS. Happy American Independence Day!

Wedding Fever

We’ve had no internet for almost three weeks & then when we finally got it up & running I sprained my right wrist (I’m right handed) hence my recent blog silence 😦

But now that I’m back I’m going to share my recent wedding fever with you! First of all are the upcoming Royal nupitals (I’ve booked the day off work & will be at home watching!) & then my best friend gets married in September… & she has asked me to make the necklace for her wedding day! Mega challenge 🙂

I watched this wedding when I was three. It’s actually one of my earliest memories! I remember watching Andrew & Fergie’s too. I’m really pretty excited about William & Kate’s wedding… unlike whoever made this funky mug! (All images found on weheartit)

Adore the car & these necklaces are gorgeous. I think the first one is more me but the second one is so delicate it’s beautiful xox
