I love vintage jewellery and thinking about all the places a ring or a bracelet could have been, the stories it would tell. So the idea of a piece of jewellery that you are given on your wedding day and will take through the years with you is right up my street. I’ve been looking at lots of wedding jewellery recently whilst planning my own wedding and I came across this video on Pinterest (the mecca of wedding inspiration). I was so engrossed watching it that I totally forgot about the bagel I’d put under the grill. Here is the evidence: Ooops! Cue the smoke alarm going off, people outside peering up at me flapping about with a towel trying to fan the smoke away. So if you feel even the slightest bit sorry for me or amused by this I think you should all watch it….. but please try not to burn your house down!;)
If you have received a special piece of jewellery i’d love to hear all about it. You can comment below. Have a great weekend. Lauren x
Everyone is gearing up for Christmas and I’m feeling the rising levels of seasonal cheer!
I’ve been talking to friends on Facebook about Christmas traditions and lots of fun Christmas memories have come flooding back to me so I thought I’d share these photos with you from a few years ago.
During Christmas 2011 my nephew found one of my confetti rockets and I agreed we could set it off! He loved it. We did snow angels in the confetti for hours and I spent even longer clearing it up! My younger nephew will be old enough to join in the fun this year so I’m looking forward to doing it again and making it a yearly tradition, though I think I will have to make them promise to help the clean up operation!
Here’s just a few things people have made a tradition:
- Christmas hampers
- Hot chocolate and Christmas movies
- Getting merry on Christmas Eve
- Starting the day in onesies with a glass of bubbly
- Wrapping last minute until the wee hours
- A present on Christmas Eve huddled round the tree
- Christmas fry up
A happy December to you all. Hope you are enjoying buying presents and making plans.
What fun things do you get up to at Christmas? Tell me in the comments.

Well it has been a long busy week but one of the highlights for me was meeting this little man, Noah.
What a little charmer!
Cannot wait to share more photos of this little cutey but this one warmed my heart.
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of capturing Gemma & Chris on their special day. What a day it was! The sun literally beamed down on them at The Tuns at Staple House.
It has been a crazy busy summer full of meeting and photographing lovely couples and some great families and Gemma & Chris and their family were some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. Thank you guys for welcoming me in and letting me a part of your day, you rock!
There is nothing I would rather do that capture moments of love and laughter between newlyweds. My poor blog has been a little neglected lately as I’ve been really busy, so I thought it was about time I shared some of the beautiful moments that I have seen this summer and what a great way to start than with the gorgeous Gemma and Chris.
Here is a sneak peek of Gemma & Chris’ day. Once again, thank you to them and their families for an amazing day!
The week before last I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing tiny little newborn twins. Their lovely mum contacted me quite a while back now and we exchanged emails leading up to the arrival. I don’t know who was more excited!
Well James and Ella arrived happy and healthy and have been keeping Mummy and Daddy very busy. We had a wonderful day capturing some memories to treasure. I have so many really adorable photographs of little James & Ella, they were such little characters, but I couldn’t wait to share a little sneak peak. I hope you like them. Aren’t they cute?
