One Year of Marriage & The Farm Yard of Dreams

Oh goodness. I have news. Big news. Blogosphere, I have found my new home. We spent our anniversary weekend in Newcastle at the gorgeously luxurious Slieve Donard. Such. A. Treat. As cliche as it sounds, I can’t believe it’s been a year already. That means it’s three years since I discovered the oh-so handsome bassContinue reading “One Year of Marriage & The Farm Yard of Dreams”

I am Mrs Brown

Even before Dan and I got engaged, my friends began joking around about my name change. Mrs Brown. #TeamGB. Brownie. And to be honest, beyond the giggles, it did overwhelm me a little bit. Take a step back with me for a second.  The strongest thread that runs through my life and my work isContinue reading “I am Mrs Brown”

BRIDE BLOG #14: WEDDING DIY

Ok so! Wedding DIY. We picked a beautiful venue (Riverdale Barn) that is like a pretty blank slate – and actually, if you added nothing to it, it would still be beautiful. The pond, trees (especially in Autumn!), two barns and fire pits speak for themselves. It was nice knowing that when we planned ourContinue reading “BRIDE BLOG #14: WEDDING DIY”

BRIDE BLOG #4: HONEY, I LOST THE MARRIAGE

Ok, no, I haven’t. And I’m suppppper excited about being married soon! It has struck me though that there is a crazy expectation that engaged couples spend all of their engagement wedding planning. There is SO much information out there about engagements, weddings, home-building. And that’s usually really good stuff. However, there is little about marriageContinue reading “BRIDE BLOG #4: HONEY, I LOST THE MARRIAGE”

BRIDE BLOG #3: BEHIND SCHEDULE IN BECOMING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BRIDE OF ALL TIME

According to my wedding planning app I should have begun a beauty regime two weeks ago, allowing myself 6 months of grooming and pruning to turn me into The Most Beautiful Bride of All Time or, at the very least, The Most Beautiful I Have Ever Looked. I should already be upping my vitamins, supplementsContinue reading “BRIDE BLOG #3: BEHIND SCHEDULE IN BECOMING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BRIDE OF ALL TIME”

BRIDE BLOG #2: an ETHICAL wedding?

I wrote last week that I felt the wedding industry was like a blown-up version of the beauty industry; it would be more true to say that the wedding industry is like a louder, brighter, bigger version of everything…food, transport, accommodation, clothing, decorations, printing: a lot of everyday things wrapped up in bows for aContinue reading “BRIDE BLOG #2: an ETHICAL wedding?”

BRIDE BLOG #1: the beauty industry & me.

So I know I said I wouldn’t talk too much about the wedding, and I still promise I won’t. However, we are making some of the big decisions at the minute and I feel the need to write because I would love to hear your thoughts. Let’s begin… It all started when we got backContinue reading “BRIDE BLOG #1: the beauty industry & me.”

2014: 5 GOALS

There is always risk in vocalising/publicising things you WANT to do, as there is always the chance you don’t follow through and end up looking like an idiot. However, there is power in sharing, and so perhaps sharing my ‘goals’ for 2014 will help keep me on my toes. I don’t think I’ll accomplish allContinue reading “2014: 5 GOALS”
