Greenunions: Tying the knot in Notting Hill by Hannah and Daniel 

I wasn’t happy with my wedding dress so bought a new one a week before the wedding… then ended up wearing both of them!

Peeking through who said what about THE new engagement (when Harry met the gorgeous Meghan) I was intrigued to see a piece about the actual engagement ring written by Arabel Lebrusan, an ethical jeweller on a mission.

I love it when someone looks into these glam celebrity moments from a sharp authentic angle. While we just look at the press photo and check out the new coat, Arabel is studying the ring via a questioning ethical microscope.

I have been a bride once but dressing as a guest is harder.

Its your big day so you are looking beautiful you have been pruned, primped, perfumed, and pampered by a team of professionals.

But let us take a longer view of this picture and focus in on your female guests, (like it or not men just pop on a suite and run their hand through their hair ) which is so unfair I know but it’s the truth.

This utterly romantic woodland wedding shoot reflects the natural beauty of the English countryside through Linda’s latest unique collection of free spirited eco friendly wedding dresses. Totally relaxed with an alternative edge, the collection embraces raw Nature just as she is.

The shoot, which started out as the joint vision of a romantic beach shoot between Linda and photographer Katy McDonnell, set out to showcase more diversity in the models than we usually encounter in your average cookie cutter styled wedding shoot. 

Of course this is what I would expect of Linda, a champion of diversity!

Nature it appears, had other plans, and they ended up in a woodland dell with the sunlight playing through the trees, dancing with the models - a naturally relaxed and dreamy environment for Linda’s unique designs and Katy’s photography.
