Bridal hair- Long and lush

Hair up or hair down? If you have hair that behaves and does not let you down like my hair does especially in the heat, then to answer the question it depends on what you feel most comfortable with, but if you are leaning towards letting your hair down lets take a look at some styles to inspire!

Something blue...

The other day I had the joy of having to phone Italian telecom to report a fault on the line. I had the joy of calling 6 times and whilst 4 of those calls were stressful 2 where highly entertaining! My favourite call was with a very sweet operator from Turin, who has herself in a tizz about her wedding and took the opportunity of my phone call to pick my brains. Her first question was,  'If I have been living with my man for 18 months is it ok to still wear a white wedding dress?' and this got me thinking. Not really about the question itself but my answer to her was she could wear any colour including white she feels comfortable with, but recently I had seen a bride in the most beautiful blue grey silk gown and it looked amazing!  Leading me to your "something blue!"

Summer mountain wedding in Cortina d'Ampezzo

We normally get requests for winter weddings in the mountains , think white crisp snow, blue skies, horse drawn sledge, candle lights and roaring fires. But are you missing out on one of the most spectacular back drops for a summer wedding in Italy?  Take a look at Jenny and Jonathan's mountain wedding for inspiration and think welcome picnics in green valleys, lovely walks, stunning venues, wonderful food and breathtaking locations for the ceremony, think Cortina d'Ampezzo...

Happy anniversary my lovelies! xxx

Why Grey? Because my ideas are colourful!

I am in love with soft grey colour themes, be it used for the brides gown or the bridesmaids, the groom and grooms men,  decorations and stationary, I think elegant grey is going to be BIG next year! 
Mix it with soft lavenders or peach to make it pop! 
Enjoy! x

What is it about the elegance of Black Tie that gets us gets us ladies all excited and makes the men stand up straighter, play with their cufflinks and start asking for a Martini? 

Sunday, 22 July 2012

It's going to be uber-fancy. How do I know? The invitation says so itself -- "black tie."

Having recently had a conversation with a friend, who is going to be celebrating her marriage in a blitz of 30's glamour, about the dress code for her wedding, the logistics and peoples reactions to two little words 'black tie'. It started me thinking, "forget about the men as they are easy, (will post about them another day!) WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR???"

Stunning Succulents! Just been talking to one of our brides about how to have a different take on a bridal bouquet that is still feminine but not too girly girl. I think succulents are the answer for a modern take!

Bridal Hair- The up do!

Bridal hair is as important as the dress! Getting it right means it not only does the style have to look amazing on you, it also has to look amazing all day long! The up do is a popular choice especially here in Italy where the heat and humidity can play havoc!

Blush peach

I used to stay clear of peach, I don't know why, but this wedding season I have fallen in love with peach and blush tones and how they create such a soft and feminine ambiance.  Very romantic peach and blush tones work well with many other colours and back drops, even more so here in Italy where there is a natural peach filter as the sun sets and the countryside are bathed in the perfect soft peach glow!  Here are a few of our favourite peach inspirational photos!
