Embrace the wet weather

Good evening readers, how are you all? Enjoying the beginning of our British summer? My post this evening is dedicated to British weather and how to embrace the rain  on your special day...  It woud be great to have some feedback and any ideas or requests which you may have of things you would like me to talk about / research / post, would be really apprieciated and ensure I am writting about things of interest.                                                    Here in the Cotswolds we had another wet, grey week with only the odd spell of sunshine bursting through the clouds every now and again... As a Mummy, I am always prepared for wet weather and thinking a step ahead, about foot wear Wellies, the correct clothing Rain Coat and activities which we can do no matter what the day brings. There are plently of  things we save for a rainy day.   Noah especially loves splashing in puddles, making mud pies, long walks collecting soggy leaves with  his wellies on and anorak zipped up, listening to the rain from beneath the rain covers and waiting for that very special and colourful rainbow. 

So today, I have been inspried by the wet weather we keep getting here in the Cotwolds. My garden is looking beautiful, like a sea of lushness, greens, purple lavenders and herbs. I love it when the rain falls on a spiders web which has been carefully crafted amongst the plants, as it catches the light and twinkles.. Its so pretty and such a work of art. 

I have collected up a few images of Wet Wedding Days and Rainy Inspiration, because a bride does have choices and the weather should never put a 'dampener' on the day. Its understandable why a Bride to be may be concerned about the weather on her wedding day, dampness causing frizzy hair, mud and puddles, dirty wedding dress and wedding shoes, poor photo opertunities, frustrated wet guests, the list could go on. However, embrace the weather and be weather prepared, snow, sun or rain.
Wellies and umberellas are 2 wonderful ways of being weather prepared and also adding a little 'fun' and creativity into the day and photo shoots.
Personaly I love rainy wedding shots, I think the use of umbrellas and rain boots can be so magical and romantic, creative and fun.
Whether they match your outfit or wedding style or completely stand out.

I hope you enjoy these beautiful raining pics =)

House of Isteria

Eveneing peeps, how are you all? Enjoying a grey English summer ;) Today I met a very gorgeous lady for coffee and cake, in a very pretty hidden vintage tea room. I was told about Well Walk Tea Rooms a few weeks ago and can't stop raving about it.. its simply the best place to go for a cuppa in Cheltenham. With scrummy home made cakes and walls covered in vintage treasures, I am in heaven. So I suggested meeting a very lovely twitter friend there this afternoon, Charlie for House of Istria. 

Beautiful Bespoke Wedding Hair Accessories, designed with style and made with love and care by the adorable Charlie.

Charlie is just adorable, has the sweetest and kindest heart. We met via twitter and occasional share a tweet, chatting about vintage treatures and of course weddings ;)
I have been designing and organising an event, which is a little secret atm, but will all be revealed soon and Charlie is lending some of her beautiful hair accessories from her new collection. I had a little sneak peek today at a couple and she is just such a talented lady. They were uber pretty and any bride wearing a piece designed by Charlie from House of Istria should feel very special.  
 I simply Love Charlies wedding pics, a very beautiful DIY and personalised wedding with a lovely gentle and romantic rustic feel.. Lots of inspiration for when I get hitched lol
