It’s so Lover.ly

I’m so excited to share this post and delighted to show you Lover.ly!

Thanks to my bookmarked bloggers I came across this site a couple of months ago and gratefully granted beta access to the database of gorgeous photography.

Now to kick-start 2012 Lover.ly has launched its very apt lovely collection of categorised wedding photos to the public.

The ability to have hundreds of inspirational ideas under one roof, which have been selected from some of the most influential wedding bloggers, allows visitors to select images for later and create you own wedding bundles.

Having spend countless hours flicking through categories like Décor, Deserts and Dogs! I’ve put together a bundle I’d like you to indulge in…..

“Something Blue”

With Lover.ly’s blog constantly introducing other sources of wedding inspiration, it has to be the first stop for brides, or like me anyone who take pleasure in all things beautiful.

Here are some of my most popular photos from Lover.ly!

Being able to post your favourites or bundles on Facebook it’s the perfect place to begin party planning!

The moment I wake up…

Before I put on my make-up…

Finally a Sunday edition on a Sunday! As my favourite film is currently on TV, this Sunday is really becoming my perfect afternoon.

The Way You Look Tonight

In honour of the 1997 Julia Roberts classic “My Best Friend’s Wedding” I say a little pray for you… I wanted to bring you another of my wedding inspirations, one which I’ve been following for about 5 years and a true source of bridal beauty. Snippet and Ink’s blog has established itself as the ultimate daily blog for all things lovely.

Having fallen in love with Kathryn’s inspiration boards which continue to set and inspire my creativity with each tiny detail being of such a high standard. My only slight obsession for wedding photograph has grown with every ‘real wedding’ which has been posted over the years.

Snippet and Ink has become a part of wedding vocabulary and such lovely way to share great themes, stunning photography and so many stories from beautiful couples on their big days. http://www.snippetandink.com find a link on my featured blog roll on the left of Sixteen10’s home page.

Until next time, D x

I Propose

It’s the season for that bright warm wedding, but what season isn’t perfect for a wedding?

Working for the last year, to enable me to spend this summer (my last summer) to relax, enjoy, holiday and not lift a finger, has left me instead searching for something other then being a on-call taxi; I can’t stop myself finding little projects and work to kept me busy.

So I want to share a great wedding proposal , with one of my own!

Trying to get ahead before I start my final semesters of university, I’ve also been looking seriously on where I want to be in a years time. (Seeing many of my peers finding roles which allows them to continue the lifestyle they have come accustom to, without utilising their degree)

This brings me smoothly to a proposal and opportunity I will pursue…

I had a great time putting this pictorial covering letter together on Photoshop!

Sunday Edition #2

I may be a day late but I wanted to share this Sunday Edition post with you…

As you may have heard and honestly I believe the only reason, I would have flown back from a girls holiday in Ibiza for …. A wedding! Really no choice either miss out on one or… do both!

So thank you to the newly wed couple Niamh and Adi for sharing your special day! My beautiful sister made a lovely Bridesmaid, she played her part as the Belle of the ball like a natural and not a girl who had grown up dreaming of this role for her bedsitter come great ‘big’ friend!

The couple’s happiness and love gave a real quality to this perfect day. The only day this month were the sun shone so brightly for these two, both at the lovely local church where they exchanged their vows to the bold rustic barn where guests enjoyed divine food and serious dancing.

Niamh and Adi with the Brides parents

A heartfelt Father-of-the-Bride to a hilarious five paged Bestman’s speech made treasured memories even if I didn’t win on the individual scratch cards which filled our name places.

My family- Sister Kelsey as Bridesmaid

Coming from a family of dancers (not professional I may add) the band were entertaining as well as providing hit after hit, donning different costumes to fit the genre of music they played. Inflatable guitars and Mexican sombreros were given to guests as we watched the Bride and Gloom take the stage for a second less traditional first-dance.

The entire day combined two families; with fun, simple and gorgeous elements truly one which sets my goalposts for future weddings.
