The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday!  I have a wonderful day off planned today, well a tiny little bit of work first then off out with old friends to catch up over lunch and maybe the odd glass of wine!  What are you planning on doing with your Sunday, any unusual plans?

The voting has closed for the Wedding Magazine Awards and before the big ceremony on 8th October, I wanted to say a really heart-felt thank you to everyone who voted.  Getting to this stage really did mean a lot to me and it brightened my day when you emailed, Facebooked, tweeted that you had voted.  Now need to finalise my outfit and then off to The Ritz!

On Monday we started the week with a fabulous real life wedding at the fairytale Chateau d’Esclimont complete with beautiful wedding video – see full real wedding here.
