Big Bell…wedding '14

So am back on again, after a long break, of much moving about the country (and Ireland) and much preparation for this amazing wedding that took place over the weekend. The bride and groom, some of our best friends, finally tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony that just needed to be documented on here! So here's a brief overview of it all:

The Make-up - by Christina Gill and Anna Shorrock

 The Hair - by Victoria Sukonik

The Hair Pieces - by Rachel Gaw @ Rachels Wonders Jewellery

 The Flowers - by Lisa Evans

 The Cakes - by Edwina Charlton-Molloy 

The Venue - Bowdon Rooms

The Couple -  Gemma and Tim

So as you can see from the above photos, this wedding was nothing short of sheer glamour. Based around the theme of peacock colours, and Gemma and Tim's own artistic vision, they came up with a stunning interpretation with help from numerous friends and work colleagues to bring it all together. I first met this couple through my sister. At the time, with me having only just started university and them all being a bit older, didn't quite get them, (at the time they were all playing a pub quiz where the winners won the contents of each others pockets?!!!) But after many years and many unique experiences with them I have come to realise they, and their gorgeous daughter, are people that I love spending time with the most.

Tim, a fellow blogger at Animated Review, is quiet (has to be with Gemma around) but ridiculously funny and straight talking and would do absolutely anything for anyone if ever asked. Gemma, who has introduced me to just how loud Northerners can be, is just a natural mother. She might not think in the conventional way but will look out for you and spend her precious time looking after everyone in her special ways and just be there for you whatever is needed. She has helped me in many valuable ways, particularly the last couple of years, and I can't thank her enough for her time and her love. Both of them are complete opposites in personality (and voice level!) but just work and shows you how LOVE can be! Congratulations MR and MRS BELL!

If I…could

Jumper: H&M   Skirt: H&M   Shoes: Primark   Watch: River Island

So, unfortunately, I didn't get down to London this LFW. Am currently sat looking at the £10 left in my purse and wondering how I can make this last till payday?! My fault, choice of going for some sun this week instead! Definitely want to go in February then, just for a chance to get some street style snaps as I think is some of the best style you see from all the fashion weeks (not being biased at all in any way!). 

Been having a look through some of the street snaps and shall post up some of my faves soon, in the meantime this was something I thought of wearing down if I did go, shall do a couple more posts this week with some other options I might have gone with too. DO love these shoes but knowing me would probably have opted for some ankle boots in the end instead (I know am a wimp!). Currently sat getting ready to watch the Topshop Unique show, watch it live here, too!

T-shirt: Topshop   Waistcoat: Primark   Jeans: H&M   Plimsols: Primark

Am back this weekend after a few days away to one of my favourite places, (you've probably seen from past posts on here over the past couple of years). Went back to Ibiza just to relax and sit in some sun, before the dreaded Christmas rush commences! Felt so good just to chill away from everything, (and to get a bit browner again!).

Have come back on the day LFW all kicks of and part of the reason for this holiday week was to go down and shoot some street style snaps, still really want to do but funds may be an issue! Shall keep you up to date if do, so far though some of the pics of this seasons shows look really fun! Will do a round up of favourite looks if don't end up going tomorrow!

What a…difference

Jumper: Primark   Skort: Zara   Boots: George

What a difference a month makes! Time to start cracking out the jumpers, though not too fair enough to put away the shorts yet! This jumper reminds of a Stella McCartney one from last year, here, with its criss cross patterns. 

I haven't got much time today as I am busy packing and getting ready for a bit of an impromptu trip to Ibiza tomorrow!!! So excited to be going back again, just going for few days to chill out for a bit. Shall try and get some of the street style fashion whilst I'm there (as well as work a bit more on the tan again!). Get back on Friday, as London Fashion Week is all going on, might try and get to London then to take some more street style photos. The ones coming out of New York are making me very jealous already!
