I do love a Royal wedding and that’s why I’m getting VERY excited about watching the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this weekend! On Saturday 19th May 2018 they will be saying their vows and many of us will be tuned in to watch, as well as to see a) what kind of wedding dress she’s wearing, b) who’s attending, and c) who…

At the end of July 2016 we spent a wonderful sunny day in Hertfordshire because my lovely little Sister got married! My Sister’s best friend & I were bridesmaids, and Lottie & my Niece were flower girls. The wedding day itself was relaxed, laid back and informal and yet it was extremely beautiful and stylish too. They made their guests feel very welcome in a rural village-hall setting filled with…

Saturday 30th July 2016 was a wonderful sunny day down in Hertfordshire. It was a particularly special day in the calendar because my lovely little Sister got married! They created a magical wedding day that was relaxed, laid back and informal and yet extremely beautiful and stylish too. They made their guests feel very welcome in a rural village-hall setting filled with floral bunting hanging from…

As I sit here and type out this blog post, my Sister is currently at home frantically preparing for her wedding in just 4 days time. Bless her. It’s that week before, mad-build-up to your big day that makes you feel incredibly giddy with excitement and yet stressed out to the max because you are so worried that you don’t forget anything. The wedding is going to be…

I have just returned home from a lovely weekend away with Lottie at my Sister’s house, near Cambridge. My little Sister gets married to her long-term partner at the end of July and so we were sorting Lottie’s bridesmaid dress (and making sure it fit her), as well as chatting about everything ready for the wedding! My Sister is going for a ‘vintage meets summer-fete’ theme…

I have just been to a family wedding in Malta and wore a lovely Laura Ashley pink floral dress. I felt smart and yet really comfortable. You may have noticed that although I am a real girly-girl, I don’t actually wear many dresses. I love jeans and trousers and opt for these over a dress all the time. So it is really nice to go to…

Within my family there are 6 cousins who were all very close growing up. We’re all very close in age (OK I’m the eldest by quite a bit but let’s ignore that for a minute and not dwell on that fact too much). So far 3 of us are married. There was my wedding in 2008 in Chester, one in Dublin last year, and I’ve just been…

As I look back through my photographs from the last few days, I wish that I was once again back in the warm Malta sunshine, poolside, sipping Cosmopolitan cocktails whilst in wonderful company. In my last blog post about travelling to our special family wedding in Malta I was a little worried that I wasn’t going to relax and enjoy myself – but I most certainly…

I am currently feeling somewhere in between the utter euphoria of going away for a few child-free days on my own, to the complete worry of leaving the children when Harry is just getting over the chicken pox. I can’t decide which one I am today. I keep flipping between the two. I love having a break away from the hassle and stresses of Motherhood…
