Wedding Wednesday - Wedding Cake!

*Edit - This was meant to be posted yesterday but blogger schedule had let me down. Sorry!

As you know i'm a sucker when it comes to cake. As well as choosing the cake design and i'm excited to do some cake tasting. Flavour wise we haven't made any decisions but we like the idea of a lemon tier, a victoria sandwich tier and then something a little less traditional such as carrot cake (this will be our wild card for sure!)

I love looking on Pinterest at all the beautiful cake designs. Some of the work and dainty detail that goes into them is amazing. They are almost too pretty to eat! Here are some of the designs that are our favourites.

Lace Wedding Cakes...

I love the slight colour contrast on these

With so much choice it will be difficult to make a decision. What is your favourite design? What flavours would you choose for your cake?

Wedding Wedneday- Bridal Hair

As our wedding draws closer (just under 5 months..Eek!) I thought i'd do a little series sharing ideas that I love and all things wedding. We are in the depths of planning, with so many decisions to make. From flowers and decorations to hair styles and suits, there is so much to think about!

I can't wait for my hair trial, I'm not one of those people who spend ages styling their hair so I can't wait to have it different. These are some beautiful styles that I'm loving...

Which style do you prefer?

Garden Inspiration 2016

Now that our house is practically finished we are starting to think about doing up our garden. At the moment it hasn't got much going for it, it's a complete blank canvas. In some ways that makes it so much easier for us to put our stamp on it, but finding inspiration can be difficult. We know we'd like a cottage style garden full of flowers with a nice seating area for BBQs and fairy lights! 

Here are some of my ideas for the garden...

I want lots of bright colours...this Echanacea is so pretty!

Dahlias..

Tall Verbena to add some height in the borders



I love the Garden trellis which would add height and interest..

Plus a big garden mirror to make the garden feel bigger


A garden table so we can sit with friends and family outside.


Fairy lights so we can sit outside on a balmy summers evening

And a Chiminea to keep us warm and cosy :)


Ahh I can't wait to get the garden sorted so we can start enjoying it! I have bought a few bulbs and planted them out so fingers crossed they will pop up soon and we can enjoy a colourful garden. We just need to lay the new patio and grass and it should look much better.

Are you looking forward to getting out in the garden? What is your favourite aspect of the garden?
