The Perfect Weekend

Hello my friends hope you’ve had a lovely weekend? I’m now back from my little Southern Highlands escape and will share some of my finds with you over the next couple of days. I must warn you this is a slightly indulgent post {but it’s only ever going to happen the once} but there’s going to be a Whole Lotta Lovely wedding to plan. Yes you heard me right, Simon and I are getting hitched! He popped the question and I said yes. I’ll spare you all the soppy details but needless to say I’m walking around with my head in the clouds at the moment! and I’ve already been visiting here and here in hunt of inspiration! as if a proposal and a beautiful ring wasn’t enough I was also lucky enough to receive this gorgeous Rachel Castle heart..weekends don’t get any better!

    Congratulations to you! I hope you have a lovely time planning your wedding. My husband and I had our own little low-budget wedding earlier this year, and we had a truly lovely day with our family and friends. I wish you the same peace and happiness on your own special day.

    Now get away from your computer and put your head back in the clouds for a little while longer. 🙂

    Congratulations. My partner and I also married March this year after being together for about a hundred years. We had a low-key, low-budget 70’s inspired wedding in our tiny house which was enormous fun. Hired a double-Decker red London bus for the guests and did it our way. I found a lot of inspiration from this site.

    Congrats from Mr & Mrs Mosley!

    About time too, seeing as you’ve been together even longer than Me and Melissa I think

    See you when you get back, hopefully!

        I’m so glad the manbag was involved! (is that where he hid the ring? Do you think that’s why he’s been carrying that bag around so long?!). I’m so pleased for you both X
