Just a very quick post today dedicated entirely to my latest find, what is quite simply the cleverest Wedding Blog Site ever! (no exaggeration)
Knot News is genius in its simplicity – headlining the latest posts from Wedding Blogs around the world, it is an almost endless source of inspiration.
I want to share a new infatuation of mine…….

Bird Cake Toppers! I don’t know what it is about them, they have won me over with their sweet, rustic charm. They’re a little bit kitsch, so cute and they make me smile!

With the clocks going forward this weekend, it’s official, Spring has sprung! I love Spring – mornings filled with warm light, snow slowly receding from the mountains, lambs playing in the fields and trees heavy with beautiful blossom…. all signalling the end of Winter and better than that, Summer is just around the corner! It’s difficult to be anything other than excited and inspired, and so for those brides, like me, in love with Spring and planning a wedding for this special time of year here are two rather gorgeous Mood Boards.
First, a gorgeous green, ivory and caramel colour scheme, inspired by apple blossom and vintage lace – it’s so fresh and pretty and perfectly balances vintage with contemporary……
For me, having a vintage inspired wedding was about trying to create a look personal and unique to me – when I was younger I was adamant I would get married in black, so obviously my wedding was always destined to be unique! When planning our wedding I did consider challenging convention and going with a coloured wedding dress, but I am afraid to say I found it all too difficult and chose the easy Ivory option. But after my perfectly Vintage Inspired Wedding I came across this incredibly inspirational real life wedding bridal perfection on 100 Layer Cake
(go to 100 Layer Cake to see all the lovely photos – how cute is the matching cake topper!)
Following my blissful afternoon of Audrey the other weekend and my subsequent Style Icon post I began to muse on how a bride might channel the great Miss Hepburn and infuse their big day with some Breakfast at Tiffany’s style….. and after a few hours surfing the wide world of the web I pieced together a couple of rather fabulous (even if I do say so myself), hopefully inspirational, Mood Boards. My first is a very dramatic and elegant monochrome, ideal for Winter weddings when these striking colours would photograph so well!
