I met Lisa and Victoria who own Cicily bridal a few weeks ago at their beautiful boutique. I was blown away by the array of gorgeous gowns and instantly felt welcomed with their down to earth attitude. They stock amazing designers such as stylish Charlie Brear and perfect blush gowns by Naomi Neoh.

They have chosen a lovely collection; porcelain roses and blush hydrangea pieces with petal studs with drops of peach and gold being the favourites. Heres a few images of what is now available at Cicily bridal:

Bluebell inspiration

My favourite time of year is when the bluebells suddenly spring up. I have a memory from when I was little of walking in the woods with my dad, brother and sisters and coming across an opening just full of bluebells. There was a little light streaming through the trees and I remember we stayed there for a while and I felt immersed in the beautiful blue colour. Every year when they flower I think of this happy overwhelming moment. Blue whether its a royal blue, a cornflower blue or a duck egg blue, blue has often featured heavily in my work and I can’t get enough of it. I’ve put together a board full of some bluebell inspiration I’ve been thinking of this week.

 

I hope you like them and I hope you all find a little forest full of beautiful bluebells soon..

Wedding dress love

Since getting married last year my love of wedding dresses has only got stronger. Theres always a few dress designers who in my eyes can do no wrong and who I am inspired by on a daily basis. So I just couldn’t help but put together a few of my favourite wedding dresses from my favourite bridal designers. I have a feeling you’ll like them too!

Finnish designer Minna Hepburn started her label in 2008 whilst living in beautiful Dorset. What began with making tops for boutiques soon developed into a fashion label which is now stocked worldwide. Described as Eco Luxe each piece is made from sustainable, organic, recycled and locally produced textiles. I love her collection of shorter bridal dresses, they are so sweet and bohemian, perfect for the relaxed, cool bride. http://www.minna.co.uk/
