Honeymoon in Paris?

How fabulously romantic would it be to escape to Paris for our honeymoon? Lee has never been and I'd love him to see it at night. I've looked at some beautiful hotels and we could spend less money as going further away and have a serious luxury trip. We could stop by Louis Vuitton, Chanel, ... Sephora (of course).
Eat Wine and Cheese on the Rue de la Blah (in the words of Chandler Bing) 
Practice our french kissing ;)
Here's a little mood board, if you will, a peek inside my head..

What do we think of Paris?

Rock and Roll Register..

This popular 60s London Register Office is still very cool today..
I've looked for the nicest UK wedding spot for a very small wedding and most times the K&C register office pops up.. I can ignore it no longer. It was one of the options we were considering last summer but of course we always go back to the NY/Vegas plans. I have come to the sad realisation that my parents forever resenting us for getting married abroad isn't really worth it, is it?
The room I like (happens to be the cheapest too haha) only allows for 2 witnesses but I would like to take my two friends along too, can I really ask people to travel to london only to wait outside while we get married? And there's the question of whether to bring Ella.. ugh, so many decisions for such a small wedding!
Anyway, thinking-out-loud now over, I'll leave you with these pretty pictures of happy Newlyweds leaving our potential venue...
Judy Garland was even married here, to her fifth husband, Mickey Deans.
How much more glam can you get?
The room that I love..

So.. what do we think?

More Shoe-spiration...

Okay Okay so I know I have shoes I could wear... but look at some of these Jimmy Choo beauties I've been eyeing up.. very tempting alernatives indeed!

So pretty!
Could I?
Should I?
I might!

Victoria's Secret - Hair Envy

So I'm thinking how to wear my hair on the big day... I'v considered an up do and will no doubt do some YouTube trials but I think I'm going to go for long and wavy, a la Victorias Secret ... ahhhh... beautiful!
I may need a little help with the length from extensions but that's no problem.
It's got me thinking about colour.. I have no idea how soon this wedding will be but I should be prepping now just in case. I think I'm gonna get some caramel highlights... something between a blonde and a brunette... and a tan is essential, of course!

What do you think of these beauties? How can you not love them?
I'm favouring Miranda Kerr's do...


Screw City Hall

Well... As you know our second choice of wedding venue was Sheffield City Hall. It was my Mums idea which I fought at first but the more I looked at it the more I came around to it. The building is beautiful, the surroundings very picturesque, would get some great shots of th day by the fountain or the local botanical gardens. My parents and a couple of friends could attend.. it seemed a good choice. So it was decided. I happened to email the Hall today and request a brochure, I wanted to see the rooms, costs etc, and was told our party was too small. Apparently their rooms are too large for such a small ceremony. Huh! 
I must say I was never in love with City Hall as our venue, I wasn't dying to get married there, it just seemed to please everyone else and I didn't hate it. But it was no Vegas.
Vegas was always the dream. It was a tough one 'cause holidays need to be booked, money needs to be saved and these things must be planned. The beauty of a vegas wedding is you can elope at a moments notice with no planning and without telling a soul.. that wouldn't work for us. More frustrating is that Lee is still waiting for his divorce to go to court so who knows how long it will be until we can actually do this thing. ARGH! I'm ready to tear my hair out at this point.
Anyway... All being well we will put some money aside and be able to book the trip as soon as his divorce is final. I do really still love the Chapel Of The Bells, it's so beautiful and seriously fantastic value. 
I will update soon.. in the meantime I'm going to be uploading more  ideas posts.. just to distract me from the everyday.

Bouquet Schmouquet..

I have been concentrating so hard on this wedding not being traditional I completely forgot about flowers!
Should I still have a bouquet? I'm not doing the whole bridesmaids deal so I just thought I wouldn't bother but I could still carry something shouldn't I?
This is what I'm looking at right now...

Celebrity Wedding Photo Style..

As you know I have been waiting to get re-married for what feels like an eternity. I feel like I've abandoned this blog a little as I'm trying not to dwell on wedding planning until we can set an actual date. It's just depressing. But I feel like we're getting closer now so you may see more frequent updates here from now on.
I've been thinking about my priorities. We don't want a big wedding, by all accounts it would be classed as tiny. My dress is of course important, I want to look and feel great on the day and I think I found that early on (although I haven't tried it on it a while... must do that soon). My shoes.. again, important that I feel good in them but they don't need to be expensive and I have a couple of options that may fit. My hair and makeup will be given some extra time and consideration.. I will be doing trials on youtube and you guys can tell me what you like best.. I'm thinking of starting that soon. When I think of everything I have to do I'm not too worried. It can be put together at short notice with little effort. It's all very relaxed and casual, we will book when we can, we will invite few people, if they can make it then great, if not it doesn't matter, we're happy to go alone. So if none of that really matters then what does?
We go to city hall, we marry, we come home, we're husband and wife... that's it?
What do you have left? Photographs of course! 
If I have only one thing I want it to be THE photograph. 
The one that we can frame and hang on our wall for the rest of our lives, that we can hand down to our children, that will serve as a record of our wedding day.
I was married before, I did the whole big wedding, all the plans, all the money wasted and I got some great photographs, I never framed one of them. This time around I don't need all that, all I want is one beautiful shot that shows our love and happiness. 
I have sourced the following celebrity wedding photos online for you guys to take a look at, they are exactly what I want. Of course in the real world it doesn't always work out the way you want but I would absolutely die for a photo of us like this to hang...

How gorgeous are they?
I am a jealous person, it's an ugly trait but I am. I am jealous of anyone with beautiful pictures such as these but I love to see them all the same so if you've posted pictures somewhere or have a blogpost to share please leave a link in the comments. I am excited to be married to Lee and excited to be able to announce a date to you all that we can finally do it. I'll keep you posted and will start hair and makeup looks very soon so watch this space.

Choose Shoes...

So I've been looking for a pair of nude pumps or platforms forever to wear with the wedding dress I bought last year. At Christmas I found these gorgeous gold shoes on sale at Kurt Geiger and thought they would look pretty and should be comfortable.. they're KG after all! Since then I bought these far cheaper nude platforms from Next (£25) and I'm kinda leaning towards them now..

They are both gorgeous but which are more "weddingy"?
I know they're not like traditional wedding shoes but I am not wearing a traditional wedding dress, I'm going kinda retro/60s. 
Here's the link to my dress post 

So.. What do you guys think?
Gold or Nude? GOLD OR NUDE??
I think I'm pretty much gonna put everything up to a vote so this is the first of many choices you will be faced with.
Wedding ring post is to follow as I picked it up on Friday and it's beautiful.
