Hi all! Happy Friday and hope you’re all well. What are you up to for the weekend? I’m really looking forward to a relaxing time as I haven’t done that in ages. I’m going to go home to my parent’s house for the weekend and put my feet up, kick back and relax. On Sunday I’m going to see a few good friends of mine, we don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like so that will be nice, it will be a ‘ladies who lunch’ affair with little scones, fairy cakes and sandwiches cut up into triangles, with a few glasses of prosecco to help wash it all down. The last few weeks in Fly Away Bride have been busy and this one was no exception. We look at the fabulous designer Giambattista Valli below, but first we relive our week starting with Lindsay’s follow-up to our great post about a destination wedding versus a wedding at home with a guide to planning your dream destination wedding. The guide goes through what country to get married in, legalities, budget and more. It will be loads of help to all you newly engaged peeps out there!

Destination Wedding Italy

On Tuesday we looked at a destination engagement session in Paris. The couple from Canada had always wanted to visit Paris so decided it was the perfect location to capture their engagement photos.

I never thought I could love a place so much as Paris, it’s somewhere you can go back again and again and not get bored. So many things to see and do. I’m quite proud of the photo I took of the Eiffel Tower, what do you think?


Amy showed a beautiful colour inspiration post on Wednesday. She chose a dusky pink and pale green colour combination.

Yesterday saw a stunning destination wedding in Positano, Italy. The bride and groom chose Positano as their wedding destination because of a  John Steinbeck essay entitled Positano. I think you’ll agree, their photos are quite beautiful and dramatic.

Friday Fashion ✈ Giambattista Valli

Every day I pore over the pages of the glossy fashion magazines and online fashion blogs and I never get bored of it. My boyfriend always asks that, do I ever get bored, but how could I?! I think it’s amazing how everyone has their own style, whether it’s following trends that are popular at the time, or wearing vintage pieces mixed in with the high street, or just wearing one piece that they know will get them noticed. I love it! I know I spoke about Paris Couture last week but I couldn’t help speak about one other show that really caught my eye. Giambattista Valli. His designs are divine and not only are the dresses to die for, his detailing with shoes and cinched in waists are incredible.
