CLASSIC BRIDE’S DIARY: THE INSPIRATION
Happy New Year! Our wedding suddenly feels a lot nearer now that I can say it’s happening THIS YEAR …and with five of our friends’ weddings also taking place in 2015, it’s set to be a very exciting year of wedding fun!
I must admit that not a lot of wedding planning has happened over the last month as I’ve been enjoying my first Christmas and New Year here in Australia! But I have now set myself up with a wedding desk or ‘wedding planning sanctuary’ as I call it. It’s great to have all my ‘wedmin’ in one place so I can stay organised, and if I’m feeling homesick or had a busy day at work, I can get a cup of tea (or glass of vino) and surround myself with wedding prettiness.
One thing we have decided on is the colour scheme for our wedding. When I began my love-affair/obsession with Pinterest a few months ago I was fairly open about colour schemes but quickly found that it was peach and mint colour palettes that I was mainly pinning. I just think those colours look lovely together and have a soft, classic feel to them – and I think they will look really pretty in our venue. Here is some of the beautiful colour inspiration that I’ve found on Pinterest…

Whilst it’s been a quiet month on the wedding planning front, I thought this might be a good time to tell you about the very lucky way in which I found some of my gorgeous wedding suppliers. I went to ‘Brides the Show’ in London last year with my bridesmaids and entered a competition which I had then totally forgotten about when I got a phone call a couple of months later telling me I’d won! The competition involves prizes relating to six of the main elements of a wedding: flowers, photography, stationery, cake, hair and make-up, and the all-important dress!
I found out I’d won about 6 weeks before we were due to leave for Australia, and with the daunting task of planning a wedding from the other side of the world ahead of me, I couldn’t have been happier or more grateful. Not only had six of my main suppliers been found, but having spoken to each of them and seen examples of their work, I could not have wished for lovelier suppliers. I know they totally understand what I’m looking for and fit perfectly with the style of wedding that I’ve dreamed of, and I can’t wait to tell you more about each of them in the coming months… Katie xx
