The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday readers, what a week!   This week saw myself and hubby head off to the fabulous Ritz in London for the Wedding Magazine Awards.  Alas we lost out on winning Best International Blog with stiff competition from wedding blog giant Style Me Pretty, but huge congratulations as we don’t mind, it is a fabulous blog!


Following on from the awards I fitted in a couple of meetings and a quick trip around London before heading back home to the laptop to catch up on an overflowing inbox and submissions. If you have thought about submitting but not sure how or if it’s right for French Wedding Style, do please send it over and I happily answer all submissions with feedback . Don’t forget planners, photographers, brides and grooms and eager Mothers-in-law all welcome to submit real weddings and suppliers, I do love to see your styled shoots.

I started the week off with a beautiful lake side wedding in Annecy, full of glamour and timeless elegance.  Read the full wedding here.

I love creating inspiration boards and styling and this Tuesday I took inspiration from the flower Baby’s Breath.
