The Sunday R&R

In the South of England the summer has decided to make an appearance and after dabbling in decorating yesterday, which I ended up with more on my Rock and Roll updo with headscarf than on the walls, I have a day of blogging and then hopefully a delightful walk and lunch in the summer sun. What do you have planned for today?

On Wednesday I was a little nervous to try a new type of post and asked “Are the couples that plan a wedding day, devoted to themselves and what they want, selfish and bridezillas?”  Thank you so much for Stephanie who left a comment, please don’t be shy and I would love to hear your thoughts.

Hopefully the weather is lovely where you are, but before you venture out to enjoy it Sunday can only mean that it is time for you to catch up with the Sunday R&R.

Monday’s real life wedding really is a tale of two wedding celebrations in Paris, with sophistication, charm and elegance running throughout the day all captured by Amandine Crochet Photography. The wedding preparations took place in JAYS Paris, a beautiful mansion near the Champs Elysee, with an impressive marble staircase climbing through the centre of JAYS with natural light filtering down from its glass atrium above.  Read full real wedding in Paris.
