  1. Hello lovely brides to be...

    So its been a while since Ive posted on the blog due to having a little baby girl back on the 22nd August 2017. Lets just say trying to juggle work and a baby (also a crazy 3 year old boy) sure has been a challenge but its time to get back in the swing of things so today I wanted to share with you the stunning new Jenny Packham collection.

    I adore Jenny Packham and wore my very own Jenny Packham on my big day, which I might add made me feel so glamorous and her collections just get better and better. I really would struggle to pick a favourite so I have listed a few and have selected some of my pieces to match.

    There are some stunning designs in this collection including some classic Temperley style pieces adorned with intricate embroidery crafted and applied by hand.
