Helicopter High

One of the best days of my life... so far... was a day when a friend took my two girlfriends and i flying over Paris in his helicopter. It was amazing!

(This is a photo of us arriving at a French chateau for afternoon tea)

What I will never forget is landing in this gorgeous French chateau, only to have an entire wedding stop and watch us. I felt like a real Princess. It was so thrilling! So imagine on your wedding day, the day that is said to be the best day of your life... imagine arriving in style, in a helicopter! Personally, I would loovveeee it... but i think Frog Prince would be too scared ??

Carrie Underwood Wedding

It's been quite a week for Hollywood weddings, from Penelope Cruz to Emily Blunt and Mena Suvari to Carrie Underwood. As a lover of designer Monique Lhuillier I couldn't resist posting the photos of country music singer Carrie Underwood marrying NHL hockey player Mike Fischer. Carrie looks stunning in her chantilly lace and silk organza Monique Lhuillier gown. Wearing a 40 carat diamond tiara, a gift from her husband, she truly looked like a princess bride. Here's to a Hollywood happily ever after!

Unique Wedding Bouquets

I came across this pretty wedding the other day photographed by Stephanie Williams Photography, and just had to share the images with you. The thing i want to share is the wonderful bridal bouquets. What a great idea to have each of your bridesmaids carry a different variety of flower, but each in the same colour. I just love this idea, it's seriously uber-chic!

Each bridesmaid carried a different flower arrangement but all in white...
calla lillies, hydrangeas, carnations, tulips and roses.

Animal Attraction

I found inspiration today when i was at my friends place is Paris... or should i say at his huge mansion? His maison is amazing! It is huge (for Paris), five stories of complete French bachelor-ness! Each floor of his home is decorated in a different theme... the main living area is an African, animal theme and it's tres sexy.

There's something undeniably captivating about animal print, especially in fashion! Though it may not be the first print or colour palette that pops into mind when planning a wedding, it certainly provokes more animal attraction than you can growl at!

Charmed I'm Sure!

Choosing who will be your bridesmaid is one thing, but then choosing memorable gifts as a thank you is yet another stress. Luckily charm bracelets are never out of fashion, and when attached with a personal, heart-felt note they become an even more memorable gift for those special to you.

Charming Tiffany's!

These gorgeous little trinkets will become heirloom pieces that forever ignite the memory of your wedding day. Take the time to write a note and attach it to a charm that represents the personality of each of your bridesmaids, just like these one's below that I saw in a Christmas gift guide... simply charming !!!

You Turn Me To Jelly!

I remember when i was first allowed to drink alcohol there was a craze of making vodka jelly shots... mmmm, cheeky vodka disguised in a child-loving food... who would have thought? Lately i love jelly because you can make the adorable creation called 'frog in a pond' (of course i call mine 'frog prince in a pond'), where you place a yummy chocolate Freddo frog in a mould of jelly. Today, i discovered the English company Bompas & Parr who have started a bespoke wedding jelly mould service. Brides keen to avoid stodgy wedding cake can order a huge wobbly tower of jelly customized with whichever mould, flavor and modern internal lighting you'd like.

The jelly towers at Bompas & Parr look amazing, but if you are not in London, why not create your own jelly tower with gorgeous vintage jelly moulds... isn't it wonderful how everything old is new again!!

Here are some other fun elegant ideas for jelly...
Champagne jellies, vodka jellies, blueberry martini jellies,
jelly parfait and fruit-infused vodka cubes.

Mmmm... reminds me of how every time i see my Frog Prince
he turns my heart to love-sick sweet jelly.
