I don’t think it gets more Scandinavian than this. White walls (and muted floors!), mixed with moody hues, rich textures and metallic accents, this place is a minimal lovers dream. While it doesn’t look like the biggest space I’ve seen, what draws me in most about this home, are the soft milky coloured tiles of the column in the living room, offset by closeted alcoves in tarnished gold – one to throw into the inspiration folder for our dream home I think…

Finishing off the week with a little bit of pink door inspiration. I’m obsessed with this soft blush hue – it’s been all over my wardrobe lately, and it’s definitely been spilling over into other parts of our house over the last couple of months. While a pink door isn’t on the cards for us any time soon, I have a feeling that this dreamy mongolian fur pillow from West Elm will be making its way into our bedroom in the coming weeks…

As if you didn’t know how truly obsessed I am with pink right now (I type as I sit here in a pink pleated skirt and pink mules), when I spotted this petal pink hued bathroom via Rebecca Judd Loves, I just had to share. Aside from feeling modern, fresh, and just a little bit girly, this is the kind of ensuite I aspire to; dual sinks, generous helpings of marble, accents of gold, and not to mention two showers and a bath – well, there’s little more a girl could ask for.

all photos taken by the talented Trish of Tealily Photography

I don’t think I can truly express in words the joy I felt when I woke up on Saturday morning to find an email containing all of the photos from our wedding the previous week. To say that’s a quick turnaround is a bit of an understatement, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the way that Trish captured our special day.

It’s been a little heavy on the wedding posts around here lately – and I promise, we’ll be back to usual programming from tomorrow, for the most part at least – but I really wanted to share some of the beautiful photos from our wedding with you all.

I’ve got a full wedding Q&A planned, both for on YouTube and on the blog, so I’ll be talking about all the finer details later, but for those wondering, we held our wedding at the Grounds of Alexandria, and my dress was from Lover. x

I’d say there’s still a good couple of months until I’ll be able to share the photos from my wedding day, so I thought in the meantime, I’d give you all a sneak peek of what I wore for the ceremony on our big day, captured my one of my gorgeous bridesmaids as we waited to head to the wedding venue.

Unlike most brides (and I’m speaking pretty generally here…!), I didn’t even step foot inside a bridal boutique; when it came to finding ‘the one’, I knew it was going to come from Lover, and there was absolutely no question about it. On a day where I think you put so much pressure on every single element to be perfect – which it incredibly was – I wasn’t the type of bride who wanted to spend weeks agonising over which dress to buy, only to find myself doubting my choice later.

Having read about the paradox of choice many years ago, I decided to try on just two dresses which had completely caught my eye – I’m a sucker for Lover’s French lace – and while the dress I chose felt completely out of my comfort zone, in that moment, and in ever moment since, I knew that it was the right dress for me. I think I’d probably also watched enough episodes of Say Yes to the Dress to know that a strapless ballgown wasn’t even close to the direction that I wanted to head in, and I wanted something that was a little delicate, with an almost other-worldly feel to it.

But in saying all of that, I think I always knew I was going to be a Lover girl on my wedding day, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

I’ll be sharing all the details of the wedding in due course, so if you have any specific questions related to it that you wanted to ask me, please be sure to drop it in the comments section below! xx
