so where to begin? i think starting to plan a wedding is the trickiest thing to do. I was always very aware that fundamentally I wanted our wedding to represent us - our creativity, style, taste and well us-ness. but having the blankest of canvases with a marquee and nothing else to go on, makeing decisions in the early stages is a real leap. most weddings I have been to follow the same formula - church, marquee, flowers, nibbles, sit down meal dancing and without question ours had to go down the same line.
the best wedding i had ever been to was by my beautiful friend Ge's. it had the feeling of being home grown from the flowers to the table names it had just been built with hard work and love. so above all my aim was to have this same feeling at ours.
in making decisions my wedding blog addiction helped to a certain degree - browsing what worked, what other people were doing, colours used, fabric, lighting, food, photographs, flowers.. umm it was all so addictive and beautiful. but in the end we had to make a start.. and for us it started with hearts...
