Natural Purmunery 'Unveils' Its Wedding Range

Im so pleased to be featuring this lovely 'idea' on my wedding blog today. It finally reached its place at the top of my list for gorgeous blog posts. Ive been so thrilled with the interest in featuring on the Ladyamy blog. Its had so much wonderful feedback so im very grateful, to all you guys who have featured and I look forward in you featuring again soon..

Today we have a lovely Perfume Range. This is such a wonderful idea and perfect timing too as be bounce into the Spring with new fresh ideas for thoughs summer weddings.. Ladyamy


To coincide with the start of the traditional wedding season, an artisan perfume company has ‘unveiled’ some great ideas for any bride looking for a quirky hen party, an indulgent experience for the big day, or the perfect wedding favours! 

Essentially Me specialises in producing fragrances from the world’s finest natural aromatics for people with a true passion for perfume, and delivers unrivalled expertise in developing sophisticated and unique scents for any occasion.

Hen Parties
For the bride-to-be who’d like a hen party with a difference, an exclusive, one-day perfume making course with all the girls promises to be a fun day out to remember!  Participants spend the day learning about natural scents and aromatic blends before creating their own bottle of fragrance to take home!  To help with the celebrations, champagne and cakes are included during the workshops which take place at Essentially Me’s workshop in Stroud, Gloucestershire. If it’s too far to travel for just one day why not make a weekend out of it and experience the delights of the Cotswolds.

Bespoke FragrancesIt goes without saying that brides often spend months searching for the perfect dress, a beautiful headdress and the ultimate flowers – so why not maximise the impact with an exclusive fragrance, created especially for The Day?

Essentially Me’s bespoke fragrance consultation with master perfumer Alec Lawless helps the bride to decide on her favourite natural fragrances which are then blended to create two scents, which are sent to her home as miniatures to try for a week. Once she’s picked her favourite, the bride will be sent a 56ml bottle of her own unique fragrance to wear on her wedding day, and the formula will be kept should she wish to re-order at any time.

Wedding FavoursEssentially Me also offers a range of 1ml perfume miniatures, which can be presented on personalised gift cards or in a range of coloured, personalised gift bags for perfect – and unusual - wedding favours to compliment your theme. For that extra bit of luxury, you can have a bespoke fragrance made into favours in 12ml bottles with a personalised label to commemorate your special day.

Further details about Essentially Me’s wedding range, including perfume workshops, bespoke fragrances and wedding favours can be found at or call 01453 882525.

Thankyou for reading this lovely blog

Ladyamy Hearts

Little Hearts so these little treasures have kept me very occupied over the last few nights, heehee! Sanding and painting, cutting and sticking... but they really do look adorable and have caught the eyes of you lovely twitter lot, who all seem to love them ;) Thankyou!!

The Ladyamy office is nearly finished now, its so exciting..

Wedding Belles Otley

Wedding Belles of Otley are an official Alan Hannah Stockist.All Alan Hannah gowns are designed and hand crafted at their London studio, the stunning designer couture wedding gowns from multi-award winner Alan Hannah feature exquisitely made corseted bodices, classic lines and have the classic couture cut and fit synonymous with the designer.
Marguerite Hannah has been the designer for the Alan Hannah label since 1990. Her inspiration for the individual flowers on Melita, which are stylised Gerbera daisies, were the daisies from her childhood memories of “he loves me, he loves me not”. Of course, with Melita it is definitely a case of “he loves you”, so it’s a little bit of a dream come true. Every petal is designed and hand crafted at the Alan Hannah studio, before being sewn on individually. This imagery was used on the recent Magical Wedding TV commercial, which shows a flower being sewn together, a petal at a time:


The Alan Hannah collection at Wedding Belles of Otley contains a wonderful selection of both full and slim line bridal gowns, all of which are in the most sumptuous silks, satins and organza’s. With a choice of beautiful fabrics and colours, and an array of trimmings and special finishing touches, you really can have the wedding dress of your dreams.
We also stock many other designers who sit beautifully alongside The Alan Hannah Collection: Nicola Anne England, Mark Lesley Bride and Couture, Trudy lee and Romantica of Devon. The price ranges are from as little as £349 - £2500.
We also have a wonderful range of Bridesmaids where you have the choice of up to 49 colour combinations.

A sneak peek at the lovely Ladyamy office..

My lovely office area has had a little refurbishment and is finally coming together so beautifully..

It has taken a couple of weeks, but it very nearly finished. Many afternoons wandering around local charity shops for lovely vintage treasures, a few gorgeous bits from online shabby chic shops and ebay(oh how I love ebay) and a couple of pieces I nabbed from my Mummy's attic, which I have great pleasure in restoring. Ive simply put together a little room, of all my own lovely bits'n'bobs and collected vintage treasures along the way adding to my collection.
Here are a few images, Im not a photographer but Ive tried, heehee... I hope you like?

Natasha Jane Bespoke headwear and Bridal Headbands


A delightful blog post filled with beautiful twinkly Bridal headbands and bespoke headwear, perfect for any special occasion, on every gorgeous girlie's wish list-Ladyamy


                                                   Beautiful Cinderella shoot..

                                                      Wedding Fair...

I design Bridal Headbands and Bespoke headwear for the modern bride with a touch of golden age glamour.
My designs are vintage inspired so I think about the style and art of the art deco period up to the fabulous fifties and everything in between. 
I wanted to create headbands that would be comfortable, beautiful and eye catching for brides and special occasions. 

All of my headbands are made using silver plated wire, Swarovski crystals and pearls, good quality glass beads and freshwater pearls so they have a fantastic shine
I make sure my headbands arrive to you in pristine condition in a sturdy keepsake box, you see so many plastic flimsy boxes with dented edges. 
I think its great to have the box so you can put in any other wedding accessories from the day or little memories.
I have two collections with in the Natasha Jane range, the Elite and the Signature are both equally as beautiful and unique in design and quality. 
The Signature collection has dainty bows and elegant floral patterns teamed with sleek shapes whilst the Elite collection showcases the very best of intricate design.  
Elite collection favourite Agatha is a beautiful headbands showered in swarovski clear crystals and for the more delicate finish Tula is an excellent choice.

It is important to choose the right headband for the hairstyle you have on the big day. Why not speak to Ladyamy for hair style suggestions or take a look at her gorgeous website.. Wedding Planner and Wedding Hair Specialist

Alex Davies Photography

Im privileged to feature, on my little wedding blog today, a Real Wedding by this lovely talented Lady Alex Davies of Lancashire

 Sarah & Duncan Horridge 25/09/10

Great John Street Hotel, in the heart of Manchester. This former schoolhouse has been converted into a very chic boutique hotel.
 This beautiful  character building is part of the Eclectic Hotels group. So an intimate city wedding with a civil ceremony.
 Sarah & Duncan's brief was a very specific style. Whilst reflecting their personalities and love for each other, they also wished to encapsulate the character, soul and style of the venue into their photographs, capturing all the little details which made their wedding unique.
I used a vintage wash to develop the photographs to fully capture the style of this beautiful wedding, decoration and interior to this character building.

I love Alex's style and obvious talent behind the lens-Ladyamy


Here are a few more of Alex's photographs
