a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Wedding: The Prep

I posted a photo a few weeks back of my wedding day on my Instagram and I got so many responses asking for more photos . . .  so here we go!  We got married in the South of France in a little picturesque town called Arles.

It was the most magical few days of my life.  We had our families and closest friends with us and it was a long weekend filled with love, great food, champagne, dancing and laughter.  We had the ceremony and reception at the Hotel Jules Cesar (which is now being refurbished in collaboration with Christian Lacroix!! say what!!!) 

The photos were taken by a well known Parisian photographer and our wedding was actually published in CosmoBride the UK edition . . . our wedding album was done in a very traditional European album with hand-printed prints so these look pretty bad because they are iPhone pic's I took from the album.

I had tuberose in my bouquet; the florist said to put a fragrant flower in my wedding bouquet so that every time I smelled that flower it would remind me of this day:and to this day when I smell tuberose that is the only thing I think about

My amazing little sister did my make-up for the day (eyelashes and all!) and my mum (an amazing hairdresser - I know I'm SO lucky!!) did my hair and it was exactly how I wanted it!

Me and my dad . . . he cried more than me

Our piper that flew in from Scotland to pipe me down the aisle . . . Tom - he was wonderful!
