I hope you will all forgive me this week for posting a completely different type of blog!
You see on Saturday 17th I will be the Mum of the Bride! My only daughter is getting married at Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall, a beautiful country park overlooking Plymouth and the Sound. I shall blog with pictures next week.
Our bedroom is now full of wedding dress, hooped petticoats and all associated finery! Our house is becoming increasingly mad (we only actually have one usable bedroom as the others are studios for me and hubby) as relatives move in tomorrow from various areas of the country and we yet have a lot of work to do in dressing the Orangery where the reception is to be held.
My dress was a real find from Dig For Victory http://www.digforvictoryclothing.com and was made to measure in my choice of vintage fabrics from Eleanor's cupboard - I'm a real fan of fifties dresses. I've also made myself a pretty butterfly necklace in matching aluminium. I haven't made my daughter's wedding jewellery as she wanted something very particular, however, I have made their wedding rings. My mum has made the wedding cake and my daughter has made most of the decorations herself, from miles of bunting to table centres. You could say that it is a bit of a handmade wedding!!
Just to let you know that I shall soon be featuring another artist in a collaborative blog - particularly exciting for any brides to be out there!!
I look forward to sharing photos and memories of the day with you all next week - can't let any secrets out yet!!! Here's a quick peek at me with my daughter and soon to be son-in-law!
