Sweet Potato

From here Apparently (according to What to Expect) I am currently carrying a Sweet Potato around inside me. There has been some debate within the AOW team as to how big the average sweet potato actually is – Aisling cooked one last week that made roast AND mash potato for two people, which seems fairly large [...]

Girl, You’ll be a woman soon…

Back when I was still in the throes of morning-sickness-so-vile-I-wanted-to-die, we put a call out for guest posts, so that we could at least keep providing you with some weddingy reading material whilst we got back on our feet. Sophie was one of the first to send us in a post, and when we read it [...]

Any Other Photo {Ginny and Nathan}

So when Ginny sent me her submission for Any Other Photo, I felt it all; happiness, awe, a little sadness too. I have never seen an Any Other Photo like this. I love that Ginny’s favourite photo represents something that subverts expectations but rings so real, and so true. Joy doesn’t cover the photo you’re [...]

Very Important Meeting.

Back when we asked begged Anna to join us at Any Other Wedding, we knew that if she was bonkers enough to say yes, she would be AMAZING. No doubt about it. What we didn’t know, was just how amazing. I don’t know that I can tell you how awesome she’s been, without making Clare [...]

The books that made me me – Anna

 “Lord! When you sell a man a book you don’t sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue – you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night – there’s all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.” – Christopher Morley So, [...]

One Year Later…

The first post I wrote for Clare and Any Other Wedding was a semi-rant about the frequency with which I was asked ‘Does it feel different now that you’re married?!’ I talked about how it wasn’t different, not for us. How we loved each other so very much already that it couldn’t possibly have gotten any [...]

How I met your mother.

I sat down to write a post about the difficulties of marrying into another family, especially into one of a different culture, and the challenges of taking them on as your own. I had such good intentions. And then I realised…I was all profounded out. After the post-wedding vows to Mr K of last week, [...]

Any Other Photo {Amy and Alastair}

When Amy sent me her submission for Any Other Photo, it had me grinning all day. Like a loon. Her enthusiasm had me right back at this moment last July. I was lucky enough to be a guest at this wedding and let me tell you; I have never attended a ceremony as filled with [...]

Summer Reading

16 days of scorching sunshine, freshly squeezed orange juice, egyptian cotton sheets and an infinity pool. 16 days of quiet, of the coconut-and-lime smell of suncream, cold showers and ‘Now That’s What I Call The Movies’ on the iPod. On repeat. Approximately 5 days of worrying that our friends would forget to feed the kittens [...]

Us, Elsewhere

The first place we are where we normally aren’t (are you following?!) is actually really very close to where we are right now. Enough of the nonsense, I hear you cry! Well, pop on over to our shiny new ‘About’ and ‘The Team’ pages and you’ll see the first exciting development  we have for you today. They’re [...]

Hello! We're Clare, Aisling and Anna and welcome to a corner of the world where smart, flawed, real women talk about the bigger picture; about their experiences, stories and opinions on all aspects of being a woman today, from marriage to feminism to pretty, too.
