luella and a whole lotta love

Well, ladies (and hopefully a few gentlemen!) I was rather excited to attend the Luella's Boudoir Wedding event last eve.

I may have got to meet the photographer (but more on that another time!) and other wonderful ladies from RocknRollBride to Julia Boggio to Rebekah Daley to Emmy to Magpie Vintage to the yummy Emma Case.  Also many others but I have a brain like a sieve!  It was so nice to meet you all.  Hopefully we shall meet many a time in future!

The star of the show was undoubtedly this Lisa Redman dress.  I would never be able to wear it (I have some serious squash/hockey playing shoulders!) but for someone it is the answer to their dreams.  The exquisite beading detail at the waist makes my heart swoon and the crystal details which shimmers so seductively.

Unfortunately, you may need to employ a a lighting specialist to accompany you throughout the day to make the most of the amazing glittering effect which cannot be seen on this little photograph!  However, just look how happy the model looks in the lower photograph from last night.  If that's not a ringing endorsement for a dress I don't know what is?! (As an aside I sort of super love her crimped hair!)

Apart from the dress one thing stood out like a shining beacon.  The venue. One Marylebone (which I will always pronounce mary-le-bone until the end of my days for it just sounds prettier!)

As usual I digress, I had not visited this amazing venue before.  I did not enquire about prices because 1) I do have a venue (which I will also talk about very soon!) and 2) I might cry with jealousy if I could have actually afforded it!

I would talk about the amazing prettiness but just look at these wonderful photographs of how beautiful this old church looks.

Ok, so the online photographs are a little rubbish but if you go to visit I promise you will be blown away.
