Agghhh!! Its nearly here!

Well, not quite - but i've just seen the flipping tralier. SATC2
Here you go to if you want a swizz.
SATC has always been my favourite, from season 1 to the first film the gals did. It inspires my fashion juices so well. Patricia Field is a female fashion Don! I love her and what she throws on Carrie. When Carrie did her wedding shoot for Vogue in the film I nearly died watching it. It actually made me cry a little. The programmes and film have, to date, been a big inspiration, and I cannot wait to watch SatC2 in May 2010!

The picture at the top of Carrie in season 3 I think it was, was my fav outfit of hers..boob tube with a gold heart chain. I went out and bought that outfit and I loved it. love love love love love love!!

Other folks weddings to inspire you!

I am an avid follower of the 100 layer cake blog - It's amazing and puts mine to shame slightly. I wanted to share a wedding they recently posted on there ( I will be featuring my own weddings for 2010 in 2010 by the way)
The wedding of A+B..It firstly caught my attention by its utterly amazing attention to detail - I LOVE detail and personal touches and they made this wedding so personal to them both and their guests. It's another american wedding, again, the US are doing weddings like no other in my eyes. See a few of my fav pics below from the couples wedding
OH ALSO - Look at the reception venue - It's soo huge a huge space for complete personal makeover - love love love. I need a new word for 'love' - I use it too much

Photographer GERARD UFERA has recently exhibited his latest photo story "MARIAGES “PARIS D’AMOUR” following different families/couples in Paris and photographing the most intimate and telling parts to couples big days that the conventional wedding photographer just wouldn't capture. Have a look on his site - stunning pics of REAL weddings - LOVE!

A few to ponder

Oh Christmas tree OH! Christmas tree!!

Look what John G from Dior and Claridges hooked up for xmas - Love it. Reminds me of a giant bonsai and also is in keeping with Dior Spring 2009 that I featured a few blogs ago. Blue in the winter is a fantastic colour to use. Imagine tiny blue bonsai as centre pieces at a winter wedding?! Cool blues and decor mania!

2010 trend alert!!
Also see Daisy Lowe there in the LBD - I'm seeing black dresses for bridesmaids as a 2010 trend - watch this space, as folk say. Also if you're looking to save pennies and don't want to spend out on bridesmaids dress - every girl has at least one LBD in her wardrobe. Uniform the bridesmaids up instead with cute head pieces or floral bouquets - Sorted!

To Do

I have stuff to do before 2009 is out and a lot of prep for 2010 is underway starting with an awfully boring business plan for the Spring event - snore. But once I cross it all out I'll be most pleased.
It reminds me how much a love a good old list! lists about lists

I didn't wanna say but...

...The US of A are kinda smashing it when it comes to weddings - Everytime I find an inspiration point or supplier - it's coming from overseas...!
I saw this on the 100 Layer cake blog - Photographed by my current fav photographer, Gia Canali, there are several things I love about this real wedding:

The outdoor setting of a summers eve
The lights! I love these lightbulb outdoor lights. They are so simple but bring that hollywood glamour to any backdrop
His suit by YSL - delicieux!
Her stunning, stunning dress by Elizabeth Fillmore (my other new american obsession)
And the whole intimacy captured in the pictures

Mare St in Hackney - Treasures on my doorstep

Not only is the building above (Hackney Town Hall) my favorite place on Mare St, it as also where I spent a few Saturdays catching pics of newlyweds coming out in their 'Just Wed' state of mind. There's some thing about town hall wedding that is so old school and highly romantic, I love!

There are a few places on my very road, Mare Street, that i'll be visiting this week, The candle factory next to the church which stocks all sorts of wax type candles and I want to see what's in the wax cove. Also opposite is the Vietnamese supermarket where I spied lots of very cool looking vietnamese decorations...I'm intrigues and will be in there tomorrow - I'll let you know what I find

I'm anticipating a theme..!

I'm currently collecting green bottle in the form of Gordon's gin bottles and the cute little San Pellegrino water bottle - soak the labels off and sat in the middle of the tables with a lonely stem sat in them would look just proper for vintage style weddings...
