London Anniversary Shoot

Wednesday, 17 August 2016

I am so excited to finally be able to share this shoot that we did back in July. It was so good to be reunited with our friend and photographer Candy Capco (remember this Paris anniversary shoot?) When Candy messaged me saying she was coming over to Europe for wedding season I instantly knew we had to create some magic again. This time I wanted to show off this amazing city that we call home, London and show some beautiful iconic London landmarks as our scenery.

We decided to do a sunrise shoot which meant we had London all to ourselves for a couple of hours. Big Ben, Westminster, South bank, Millennium Bridge and St Pauls at sunrise when the light is lovely and the streets are empty. It was definitely worth getting up at 5.00am for this shoot!

Jake and I adore working with Candy and to have her document our love for each other, we absolutely love these images! Of course once we finished the shoot we said "So where are we going next year?"

Vogue Cafe

Sunday, 14 August 2016

In celebration of Vogue celebrating her 100th birthday this year,  the iconic fashion bible has opened a pop-up cafe in Westfield London. The ultimate shopping pit stop for a sweet treat or two!
It's situated in The Village section which is surrounded by high-end boutiques including Tiffany & Co and Louis Vuitton....Very Vogue!

Vogue Cafe has partnered with the iconic L'orchidee offering a selection of their delicious cupcakes and macaroons as well as a traditional English afternoon tea including a specially created Vogue 100 Champagne cocktail! Shopping is thirsty work, right?

Jake and I sat down in the gorgeous cafe with vintage Vogue covers from the last century adorning the walls. I had their house blend tea while Jake went for his usual coffee and we shared a couple delicious macaroons. I got my favourite flavour watermelon, while Jake tried Venezuelan Chocolate & Tonka Bean. Of course before leaving I had to pick up one of their famous Vogue takeaway cups, the most fashionable thing to drink out of!

I recommend a trip to Vogue Cafe if you want to escape and take a break from shopping while indulging in some beautiful fashionista food. It's open until the 25th of September so put your heels on ladies, and head down soon so you don't miss out!

10 reasons why I love London!

Monday, 25 July 2016

As you have probably seen on my social media channels, I have been adventuring around London and practicing my photography.  Needless to say I have been falling in love with London, all over again, absolutely head-over-heels, over-the-top, twirling-in-the-streets kind of love.  So I thought I would share my top 10 reasons why I love London!

1. I love to go exploring on the weekends.  I always find myself walking around parts of London I have never seen before, discovering cute little door's like this one.

2. The Englishness of it all!  Sometimes I feel like I should have been born here, preferably in the royal family!  Princess Jessica has a nice ring to it don't you think?  But in all seriousness I love the royal family, the palaces and the beautiful English country side.  I'll always go for a nice cuppa tea over coffee any day!

3. OK, yes I'll admit that I am a little bit obsessed with flowers.  What wedding planner isn't?  I absolutely love the London flower stalls.  If I'm not picking up fresh flowers for our home, then of course I'm stopping for an Instagram worthy moment!

4. Every single day, if I wanted to, I could do something new in London.  Whether it’s having dumplings in Chinatown, visiting one of the many museums or galleries, hitting up a festival, exploring one of London's gorgeous parks, or heading to a show at the West End!  In a city so diverse and so big, there’s never a shortage of things going on.

5. London has made me fall in love with every season!  Spring and Autumn is exceptionally beautiful in London.  I was completely obsessed with the cherry blossoms this year!

6. Travel flights to the rest of Europe are so cheap!  I feel like London is the centre of the world and you can travel and see so many different parts of the world on a shoe string.  I have a never ending bucket list, and living in London makes it very easy to tick off my destinations!

7. London has some epic roof top bars.  So far I have managed to visit the Madisons, Radio Bar, Sky Pod and Selfridges roof top.  I'm looking forward to ticking off more roof top bars this summer!

8. Getting around is a piece of cake!  I love how quick it is to get anywhere.  Whether it’s taking a speeding journey on the London Underground, watching the world go by on top of a double-decker bus, or catching a ride in a classic black cab, it is always an experience.

9. Squirrels - enough said!

10. The fact that whilst I have lived here for only a year, I still know I have so much to discoverer and explore.  I could live here for the rest of my life and still be discovering!
