I confess, I Love a good Royal Wedding. I love the sense of occasion, the pagentry, seeing Prince Will all grown up and the anticipation of what Kate will wear. Which is why my friends and I will be playing Ladies and High Tea-ing it for the Royal Nuptials. I think it’s my “British genes” upbringing even though I’m a Kiwi.

 I was watching “Four Weddings – One Honeymoon” on tv this Saturday…the show where they have 4 Brides rate each other’s wedding in hopes of winning a honeymoon. And one of the brides on the show had the coolest thing I’d seen in a while……Flipbooks! Now most of us are familiar with Photo Booths were you get a strip of 4 photos to keep.

You can really let your creativity shine. High Tea, gorgeous florals or old world regal – it all falls under the spectacular theme of Vintage. One country which I think leads the way in the vintage wedding is the UK….here are a  [ Read More ]

 Hand held Floral Bouquets add so much to a wedding in terms of colour, style and photo ops!! The choice and range of flowers one can have is unlimited but I recommend you do consider how they will end up looking in your photos. One thing I notice alot is the sizing of the bouquet – they can often appear too large or too small in proportion to the person  [ Read More ]

So I decided to do something about it and create these Victorian Inspired Decoupage Wands. I have a love of all things Beautiful, Victorian and Vintage. I love how it sends  [ Read More ]
