It’s been a lovely chilled out and happy week in Fly Away Bride, I was off work for a few days which was nice and I just got news that two good friends of mine got engaged and it has made my month! A HUGE congratulations to Claire Quinn and Brian Macken. So delighted and thrilled for both of you! I’m having a look at some stunning Monique Lhuillier gowns below but first our weekly recap. On Monday our FAB guide took a look at some destination wedding etiquette. It looked at various things that will arise such as gifts, invitations, and entertainment among other things. Tuesday saw an engagement session in Barcelona. The couple, Dani and Cristina, met online and spent a few months getting to know each other before finally agreeing to meet up and then falling in love. When they got engaged they went to the church to register the wedding, the priest then went on to tell them, that they were both baptised in the same church, on the same day, in the same service by the same priest! Amazing story!
On Wednesday we took a look at a beautiful wedding in Italy. Marzia and Arta are from Italy and Finland, and their wedding was held in the small town of Teramo, on the eastern side of Italy- in the middle of the country, opposite Rome. Their photographer Cinzia Bruschini really captured their Venetian style wedding.
Yesterday saw a Valentines post without a hint of red! We looked at some romantic antique shades- dusty cocoa, creams, bleached peach and delicate rose.
Some of the weddings that caught our eye this week:
Friday Fashion ✈ Monique Lhuillier
Monique Lhuillier is famous for her stunning gowns that grace the red carpets and stunning wedding dresses that some brides are lucky enough to wear. Last Saturday New York fashion week saw Monique’s Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (I know Spring has only just sprung but I couldn’t help it!) I love her designs and can only dream of wearing one of them some day.
