It can be quite daunting to choose the person who is going to take your wedding pictures. Faced with a wedding to organise, I have noticed that booking a photographer is surprisingly far down the list, despite the fact that this is the one aspect of the celebration that will be with you forever.

good invitations

This morning I found an old invitation to a friend’s wedding. I remember the excitement when I opened her envelope: I’d never seen anything like it before.

At other times my eyes hurt with the sheer visual cheese factor of certain offerings. (Click on Themes in the Confetti website and you’ll see what I mean… ) So I […]

Night sky lanterns

Scouring the wedding sites, I find a lot of scarily tacky merchandise, but there are some fabulous party accessories out there. If I were planning a wedding or a fabulous party I would definitely be using this company: Night Sky Lanterns. In fact I’m using them already, having just bought some of their lovely paper […]

true love and stilettos

So, my boyfriend and I are debating about the nature of love. Well, I say debating but it’s more a case of sleepily muttering to each other one Sunday morning. Specifically, the idea that couples should not expect to be all things to one another, but should accept that no one can ever be truly […]
