Wedding photography by Natural Touch Photography
This time last year I was waist-deep in wedding planning. I was a little stressed, but generally most things were organised. We were pulling together finishing touches and looking for last minute inspiration to make our big day perfect. Up to this moment, I, and my mum, had spent countless hours devouring the posts on Love My Dress. This amazing blog is one of the UK's top wedding websites and offers inspiration, advice and ideas for brides-to-be with a love of vintage look weddings. Over the years owner Annabel has featured some truly breath-taking weddings, with dreamy photos and brides describing their day in their own words, it is easy to see why it has become so popular.
After our own dream wedding we couldn't wait to get our photos back, and when we did we had been talking to our ace photographer Steve (more of him on a later date) about our favourtie wedding sites. We agreed that we would be happy for him to submit the photos of our day to a few websites see whether any would be interested in publishing. As my favourite site in the run up to our wedding, Love My Dress was our first call. Imagine our surprise and major excitement, (erm...a lot!) when Annabel said she wanted to feature us!
Well, the post on our wedding went live this week and the feedback has been so lovely. I am just over the moon that we made the cut.

Of course, although this feature includes a lot of detail about our day, it isn't everything by any stretch (our fabulous cake decorated by my mum for one!) but over the next few months I plan on writing a wedding post every few weeks (let's call it the Wedding Bandit!), focusing on the different aspects of how we put our day together...it included a lot of DIY! I felt like I learnt a lot in a short space of time so I would love to share some of my new found wedding-brain knowledge and hopefully it may give any other fashion-loving brides some ideas too.
