Something blue!

I know this is from Christian Dior's 2010 fall collection but as soon as I saw it I thought how it is a perfect dress for a wedding on the the Amalfi coast! It is such a beautiful gown and with its blue floral underskirt it is a wonderful take on 'something blue'.

Cherish your special day...
A wedding  ~ it’s two people committing before each other,  before family and friends a life to each other... 

Here comes the bride: Elena is sitting in the vintage car as hundreds of people come out to help her carry the dress through the streets of Casal di Princice

In Italy it is the norm when a bride drives down the road or takes a walk through the sleepy Italian streets, for the locals to come out and shout best wishes and congratulations to her. Yesterday Elena De Angellis brought out the village of  Casal di Princice to cheer her on to her church wedding and to see her wedding dress...

Wedding Celebrant in Italy

The concept of a symbolic blessing might be new to you, but there are many couples now opting for a beautiful wedding blessing ceremonies in Italy. Some get married in the town hall the day before, others before they arrive in Italy.  There are many reasons they chose to celebrate with a symbolic blessing from renewal of vows to wishing to host their wedding in an unusual location.

Green themed wedding

Green is one of my favourite colours, be it crisp white linens on tables set on a green lawn or a tease of green with green bridal shoes, there is just something very fresh and calming about this lovely colour.  Last week I did get a little carried away with olive green when I decided to paint my entrance hall by myself. There was a moment of doubt, but now I just love it!

When bride and grooms first contact us, it is rare that they have a clear idea of what they would like for their wedding day. The starting focus is on location and then logistics followed by styling. They have read lots of wedding magazines and blogs and have all these ideas floating around in their heads trying to focus on what is going to best represent them.
