Who doesn't love Peaches and Cream! Whether it's the fruit, fresh and ripe with a dollop of double cream, or the gorgeous colours combined to give a soft, subtle colour scheme.
Wedding Ideas Magazine August 2014 issue has a gorgeous mood board to give oodles of inspiration around this luscious theme, and it also happens to feature my equally luscious peaches and cream bracelet stack ;-)
I only recently discovered Johanna Hehir and her beautiful bridal designs, but I am very glad that I did.
Johanna Hehir (surname pronounced 'hair' for those wondering :-)) is a well established British designer who has been designing bridal gowns over the last 10 years from her base in London. Blending a classic clean bridal look with a modern lift, her gowns are a firm favourite of many brides. Available through only a few select stockists in the UK and Ireland, if you want a British bridal designer who is still a pretty well kept secret then look no further!
The London Mandarin Oriental was also the location of the photo shoot for the 2014 Bridal collection providing the perfect lavish backdrop whilst still understated enough to let the dresses do the talking!
With the introduction of our exciting new range of freshwater pearl jewellery at Designed to Sparkle, I wanted to explore the world of pearls and share this with you. On my journey I have certainly picked up a few pearls of wisdom along the way and hope that you too find out a few things that you never knew about pearls!
When starting up my jewellery business I searched far and wide for a name that embodied what I wanted to say about my jewellery and what I wanted people to feel when they wear it.
Italian is often called the language of love so when I found the beautiful word 'Brillare' which means 'Sparkle or Shine bright' I fell in love! I wanted to design my jewellery to make people feel special when they wear it, so 'Brillare, Designed to Sparkle' was born :-)
Today is a beautiful sunny day where I am in the UK, although with snow forecast again for the end of the week Spring is not quite here yet! Primroses and Snowdrops are valiantly flowering in my garden though, so I have hope that Spring will come soon!
No matter how much planning and preparation work you put into your big day, the one thing that you cannot control is the weather :-)
So, the next best thing to do is to make plans to cover these eventualities, within reason ;-) If you are getting married in July for example it is very unlikely (some might say zero chance!) of it snowing, but you definitely cannot say that about rain!
With Winter well and truly here and Christmas just past, many brides are headlong into organising Winter Weddings. Having stepped outside to yet another frost I think that some ideas for Winter Wedding Warmers are in order!
