Ok, I admit it - this week's blog is basically just a reason for me to talk about our wedding again, because I loved it quite a lot. New readers - this blog started out as a wedding countdown, so if you fancy reading the ramblings of a relatively stressed out bride (with what I… Continue reading W is for Wedding: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
I would like to start this post with a heartfelt apology. I work with lots of lovely people, who are wonderfully supportive of this blog, and the things I do in my spare time. One of them even helpfully brainstormed potential topics for the letter 'E' last week, including elegance. While it wasn't my intention,… Continue reading F is for Friends: A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world
I am beyond excited to tell you the wedding photos are in! Lina & Tom have done an absolutely marvellous job, and if you'd like to view our wedding in all its glory (including an incredibly attractive face from me...I won't tell you which photo, but it's near the start of the ceremony section), you… Continue reading Times change and so must I.
There's a tendency, when you get married and have a predisposition towards bridezillayness (yep, hi there!), to get sucked into the whole 'It's all about the bride' nonsense when it comes to weddings. I tried not to take advantage of this (except when I really, really wanted something) as I thought (and still think) it's… Continue reading 50 things The Boy loved about our wedding
This week, after four and a half years, I left my job. Not, I hasten to add, because I've gone full on 1950s and given up work as I'm now married, but because I have a very exciting new job, in a whole new industry, that I start tomorrow. Because why do one big thing… Continue reading The wedding – 2 weeks on
I thought you guys deserved a bonus post this week! The Boy and I were chatting about my last post, and wanted to show what it's like for a groom in the lead up to a wedding. So, while I was pampering, preening and packing, here's what The Boy got up to in the few… Continue reading Meanwhile, The Boy did his own preparations…
Today marks eight whole days since I married the love of my life, and it's been just wonderful. We went to Bath for a few days, where we walked around in the rain, drank tea and ate cake (or, in The Boy's case, bath buns), and generally had a lovely, relaxing time. Now we're back… Continue reading I married The Boy – 1 week on
As a special treat, here's a guest post from The Boy, all about the crockery we've been buying for the wedding, and the fun weekend we've just had, making sure it's all clean and ready for Saturday. ****** So about four months ago Carrie-Ann suggested that we buy our own wedding crockery. The idea… Continue reading Sneak peek: Afternoon tea – 4 days to go
Five days to go! Here are some little teasers about the bride...
Last Friday, The Boy and I visited our wedding venue, Heatherden Hall, for the second time. As regular readers of this blog will know, that's around the time it all started going horribly wrong with IWM Duxford, our first venue. Luckily, our meeting went very well - the venue is more beautiful than we remembered… Continue reading Operation TeaCake – 19 weeks to go
