So after about 7 months hiatus, I’m back to share my experiences with you all. Alot has happened in this time. There have been a few personal issues including an increased workload at the day job and planning a wedding! But I’m proud to say, I’ve come through it. I’ve been married now for just under 2 months, and I’m very happy to say the wedding was perfect! Every...
Colour My World: Choosing a Palette
For many brides, colours have been instilled into their minds since they began dreaming of weddings as a child. If this isn’t for you then there are a number of ways that can help choose your palette if you are unsure. 1. What is your favourite colour? Speak with groom and include him in the colour choice! 2.

Colour Inspiration: Black & Honeycomb
If you are a fan of the colour Yellow (particularly a strong Yellow like ‘Honeycomb’) then perhaps some of these might help.
