We Love :: Something Blue...

I didn't intend for our last post in 2010 to be shoe related... but this was simply too good not to share with you before the new year! These gorgeous Studio 120 peep-toe pumps by designer Christian Louboutin, normally recognisable by their trademark red sole, were painted by the bride for her wedding day... and the result is simply beautiful!

We Love :: David Ferguson Photography

This month, David Ferguson, Director of David Ferguson Photography (and the man behind our lovely collection photos), gives us the low-down on why it's so important to choose the right photographer to capture your special day...

Choosing the correct photographer is the most important decision you will make for your wedding day - I might be biased, but you better hear me out... :-).

You want someone who will add to your day, not detract from it. Remember that you will be spending the whole day with this near stranger, so it's important to feel comfortable with them. The images you receive will last longer than anything else from your wedding day, including your memory - your photos will be how you remember your day forever. Not a bad thing to get right!

Not only are the floral designs an absolute work of art, delightful vintage packaging adds that extra element of surprise and attention to detail. Director Anliette, is also an impressive photographer and even designed the company logo that appears on a delightful swing tag attached to each piece - how talented can one woman be! I for one, cannot wait for the launch of their full website, but for now, you can lust over their Facebook page, here.
