The First of Many Wedding Posts!

So, I'm officially a married woman now! Tomorrow, we're off to South Korea (and then Japan) for our honeymoon, but before we go, I'd like to share a little detail of our wedding - our RINGS!

Dan and I went to get them designed and hand made at a little jeweller in Cambridge, called Harriet Kelsall. We got our lovely engagement rings there, so we knew they'd be amazing, and we weren't disappointed! Our engagement rings match one another, and so we went for contrasting designs for our wedding rings. Here they are:
The rose gold one with a ruby is Dan's, and mine is the sapphire, topaz and diamond channel-set one. I am so happy with how they turned out, and I can't wait to wear mine for ever! The great thing about designing a ring yourself is that you know it'll be more-or-less unique, and you can also put a lot of sentimentality and emotion into the ring before it has even been made. We tried to be as creative as we could with everything about this wedding, and designing our own rings was a very special part of the wedding planning. The designers at Harriet Kelsall are really, super lovely too! (And nobody is paying me to say that, by the way!)

When the professional photographs are ready, I'll be sharing a lot of those, but if you are interested in seeing any sneak peaks in advance, search the hashtag, #dandysaur on instagram. We had a mega day!

I was a fashionable child...

Hi there, long time no speak! I've been up to my ears in work and wedding planning, and I've really missed blogging! As part of our wedding, we're having a photo wall, with pictures of ourselves as kids, and of our parents and grandparents too. It's going to be a fun thing to prepare the day before the wedding. Family members have been sending me an absolute truck load of amazing photos, so I thought I'd share a few with you.

I'm only showing you ones of me, because I haven't asked anyone else's permission to put their photo online, but I'm sure you'll agree that I was a very well-dressed child! Props to my mum and dad for dressing me in some excellent, tiny outfits. Also, props to the 90s for being such a hilarious decade for fashion!
I'll be back soon with some photos from my "hen party", and of course I will be posting plenty of wedding photos when the time comes! :)
