Calling all Creatives…

Weekend Wonderings

Happy weekend, readers!  Today I’m bringing you a blog that Catherine introduced me to back in January, and which I’ve selfishly held on to for nine months.  It’s a little different from usual Anna K fare, principally because it’s about PRETTY STUFF and PATTERNS.  Aisling, is we all know, is AOW Style Lead.  Clare and [...]

The Chop…

It’s safe to say that I am obsessed with this post by the delightful Bex. I’ve been umming and aahing over what to do with my wedding dress for 2 and a half years now – and am still no closer to being brave enough to do anything with it! It’s currently hanging in an [...]

D is for D.I.Y (why we bother)

Non-traditional wedding dresses…

When Martha e-mailed us with her AOP, not only was I blown away by the venue, the smiling, the love, the general beauty and fabulousness, I was also knocked for six by that BEAUTIFUL black wedding dress. Back when Ines from Source Images paired a black Agent Provocateur corset with a fabulous, huge black tulle skirt I thought [...]

What’s wrong with a big dress?

This is a post that has needed to be written (and posted on AOW) for a long time. In my very very first post, I wrote about how it didn’t matter what type of wedding you were having, whether it were an elopement or your fairy tale dream day, you deserved a space to talk [...]
